Falstaff House

Falstaff House (sleeps 4+1) is our newest addition, with its own private patio area at the rear, nicely appointed kitchen, pretty living room with original shutters, and two bedrooms (kingsize bed in one and twin beds in the other). There is an ensuite shower room along with a family bathroom.

One of the sofas in the living room is a sofa bed and additional bedding is provided.

Falstaff House is a Grade II listed cottage, built in the late Georgian period.

Falstaff House is a stone's throw away from Peaseblossom House - just in case you would like to visit with friends/family, but stay in different cottages.

Falstaff House is a pretty cottage in a great location.


Juliet Cottage

Juliet Cottage (sleeps 4) is a very sweet cottage in the centre of Alnwick, just up the road from the famous Hotspur Tower.

It backs on to the high town walls of Alnwick and so the little patio at the back of the cottage is totally safe for little ones to potter about in.

We were told that the Juliet Cottage row of cottages was originally built for Italian craftsmen who arrived  to work on the ornate designs of the ceilings of Alnwick castle.

The cottage is warm and welcoming, with very thick walls and a lovely living flame gas fire within the splendid original fireplace.

Juliet Cottage has such a lovely friendly feeling to it, and the kitchen has been refurbished in 2020 and the  new bed (again 2020) in the double bedroom is a kingsize.The solid beech, good quality bunks in the second bedroom are full size singles beds and so can be used by adults as well as young ones.

Flat screen smart TV with Netflix.

Peaseblossom House

Peaseblossom House (sleeps 4) is a lovely Grade II listed building, about a 4 minute walk to the centre of Alnwick, and along the road from the fabulous Barter Books.

The cottage is light and airy, with a large light kitchen-diner, cosy but sunny living room with gas fire with real flames, along with 2 double bedrooms, one with kingsize bed and the other with twin beds.

The pretty bathroom has underfloor heating.

Outside, the patio area is a lovely place to relax, and it is a private and not overlooked.

All the cottages have free wifi provided, along with flat screen smart tv's with Netflix.

Travel cot and high chairs are available at all our cottages too.

Handwash, shampoo, hairdryer, and all sorts of little extras are provided.





Alnwick Castle and Gardens

Magical Alnwick Castle

Alnwick Castle and Gardens are one of Northumberland’s biggest attractions, attracting visitors from all over the country.

It was also the setting for the Harry Potter films, which makes it even more interesting for children.

In addition to the castle and gardens, the Alnwick Treehouse was built in 2004, and it not only a fantastic restaurant, but is a sculpture in its own right, sitting high in the tree tops with wobbly bridges and walkways in the sky.
