Neighborhood
Alnwick, a charming market town nestled in the picturesque county of Northumberland, England, is a place where history and natural beauty merge seamlessly. With its roots dating back to Roman times, Alnwick has a rich and storied past that is still very much alive today.

The town is perhaps best known for its stunning Alnwick Castle, a majestic medieval fortress that has stood for over a thousand years. This iconic landmark has played a significant role in both British history and pop culture, serving as a filming location for movies and television series, including the beloved Harry Potter films. Its beautifully manicured gardens, known as the Alnwick Garden, are equally enchanting, featuring ornate fountains, an enchanting treehouse restaurant, and a fascinating poison garden filled with deadly plants.

Alnwick's historic town centre is a delightful mix of cobbled streets, charming shops, and traditional pubs. It exudes an inviting atmosphere that beckons visitors to explore its nooks and crannies. The town's market square is a hub of activity, hosting a weekly market where locals and tourists alike can browse an array of goods, from fresh produce to artisan crafts.

Nature enthusiasts will find Alnwick's surroundings equally captivating. The nearby Northumberland National Park offers miles of unspoiled wilderness, ideal for hiking and outdoor adventures. Alnwick is also a gateway to the stunning Northumberland coastline, featuring sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs, and the Farne Islands, a haven for birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts.

Getting Around
The closest train station to Alnwick can be found in Alnmouth, which is roughly a 10-minute drive from the property so local towns in Northumberland can easily be reached via rail. The station has direct routes to Newcastle, Edinburgh, York, Leeds, London and Bristol.

There are a number of bus stops throughout Alnwick and the main bus station is just a short from walk away from Majestic Purple. Hop on the X20 which takes you through to Newcastle with stops in beautiful areas of Northumberland like Alnmouth and Amble. The X18 route travels between Newcastle and Berwick upon Tweed with stops in Morpeth, Amble and Seahouses.

The nearest airport is Newcastle International Airport, 35 miles away from Alnwick.

Location was great, right in the centre of Alnwick, views of the castle.<br/>Facilities listed were not included. Baby safety gates and baby high chair were on the listing, they were not in the apartment. I would not have booked an upstairs apartment with a 1 and 3 year old without these. <br/>We had to report a kitchen shelf on arrival, which was hanging precariously.<br/>Wi-Fi did not work for our whole stay. <br/>Customer service whilst polite were wholly unhelpful in resolving our issues. We were told there was no baby gates and asked to have another look round for the high chair. We were asked to double check the password and turn off/on the router, none of which worked. We had to purchase mobile data to cover our stay.<br/>We were asked to pay a £250 refundable safety deposit, not an issue with that, however there was a hidden £10 non-refundable administration fee. I informed customer service it was not listed in the listing and was asked to provide a screenshot. I felt there was not a genuine concern for transparency around these fees. <br/>The twin room is directly opposite the stairs. Would not recommend for anyone with young children. <br/>Even after our out of pocket expenses and complaints about lack of advertised facilities there was no attempt to rectify the issues.<br/>Overall, I did not find this stay value for money.

Run by a dreadful letting agency - avoid!<br/>Property is fine and location is good (be prepared to park a fair distance away though)<br/>Property is run by an agency, once you are committed they force you to either pay them an insurance fee or lodge a £250 bond which they will then keep some of as an ‘admin fee’ to return to you if there is no damage caused! <br/>Also provide their own conditions post booking which they later use to ignore any issues or inaccurate listings.<br/>In our case the Wi-Fi didn’t work for the entire stay. We contacted the host promptly and often requesting support but just got a suggestion to turn it off and on again. When that didn’t work they quoted the conditions stating they didn’t guarantee uninterrupted Wi-Fi! Made a complaint via Airbnb afterwards which the host completely ignored.<br/>These people shouldn’t be listing on Airbnb, they have no interest in the host/guest ethos of the site and if anything goes wrong during your stay you will regret booking with them.

Great central location. Fantastic apartment. Good facilities within apartment. <br/>The apartment was beautifully renovated and decorated throughout. the whole apartment was spotlessly clean.<br/> We thought the provision of books, dvds and games was a thoughtful touch.<br/>We will certainly recommend to friends and family<br/>We were unable to contact anyone on the telephone number provided and we were unable to access the website so we did not have access to parking info etc and had to work out for ourselves<br/>We were unhappy with the check in and check out times. Too late in and too early out<br/>French doors to outside space had been left unlocked and we were unaware for first 2 days of our stay.

Apartment was warm and cosy, a very short walk from the centre of Alnwick itself. Kitchen well furnished, living room comfortable. Bedrooms very cosy. Despite the bedrooms looking straight onto Narrowgate, they were surprisingly quiet at night. Tea / coffee / milk was appreciated on arrival.<br/>The cleaning fee came as a bit of a surprise, but apart from that, it was fine.

The property was clean and close to amenities.<br/>The communication from Host and Stay was extremely poor. Constantly questioning if I had paid (which I had via Booking.com) I had to prove this with a screenshot of bank details. On the day of our stay I had to ring to get details at 4pm. Quite frankly, this was appalling. I will never use this company again due to this.

The apart was very modern with everything you need for a night away. Location was central a pub down the street which served good food. Check in was easy we unpacked the car then parked the car at the free carpark located down the street.<br/>The apartment bedroom lighting was a bit dark when us ladies were trying to apply our make up.?. The bedroom's are located at the front of the building which is not a problem if you are a good sleeper, which I'm not. The road outside the bedroom's was busy and the noise disturbed my sleep even with wearing ear plugs. The apart could maybe do with triple glazing to reduce road noise. That the only negative but we still enjoyed our lovely stay.

We stayed in the Ochre apartment. Location was very near Alnwick Castle and town centre.<br/>Some fixtures and fittings are poorly fitted, e.g. kitchen mixer tap almost falling off. Bathroom sink very loose. No kitchen wall unit or proper storage for crockery. Cramped rooms with low headroom as apartment is in an attic. Access to the Ochre apartment is up a long narrow spiral staircase that has inadequate handrails. Entrance is on a narrow street with double yellow lines and free parking is difficult to find and is a long walk to the apartment.

Linda

03/10/2023

Lovely apartment, well appointed. Lots of nice design features. Friendly and helpful staff. Everything was very well set up and comfortable. Perfect location, right next to the castle, the town and the pubs!<br/>Small point : Another shower room - maybe ensuite to the second bedroom - would have made it perfect, because with 4 adults sharing one loo there is always a queue! We would have been happy to pay more if there was another WC/shower. <br/>We couldn't get parked on the nearest roads as there were time restrictions for non-residents, and had to park a couple of streets away but it was free and not too far to walk.

Location was central in Alnwick and the castle, restaurants, shops, etc. and we managed to find a free car parking space five minutes walk from the property.<br/>Alnwick was a good centre for exploring the coastline, Holy Island of Lindisfarne, Berwick upon Tweed, Bamburgh Castle etc.<br/>We did not feel we had enough information from Booking.com about parking and access to the apartment, and this caused us stress when we arrived, having been travelling for a week prior to this without internet access all the time.<br/>Booking.com implied that there was parking at the property, but this was not the case. Free parking was available in the next street if we were lucky.<br/>We did not realise we needed both a street door code and an apartment key safe code to access the property, and we only received the first two days before arrival, and the latter on the day of arrival. This was stressful for us but eventually I found yet another instruction email on my phone.<br/>Also, the first night we had an early dinner out and settled down to watch England play their match in the World Cup Rugby, only to find we could not get any live TV at all. This continued for five days and then we were able to access live BBC channels only. We find it hard to believe that not even the Freeview channels were available. Somebody needs to sort this out. We lived with it but some people may have been very upset by this.<br/>There was a warning about this in the instruction folder but it is not really good enough. DVDs were available.<br/>I also think Booking.com need to make people aware that the view is of rooftops at the back and lounge, and the street at the front.<br/>The bedrooms were spacious and the bathroom and shower good but the lounge/kitchen/diner was small in comparison and would have been uncomfortable for four people. E.G. only two people could sit facing the TV.

Allan

19/09/2023

Excellent location. Spotlessly clean. Very comfortable. Nice decor.<br/>I have to be honest here. When we arrived and unpacked etc. I switched on the tv to discover I) it was in Russian ii) it only had BBC channels. This obviously meant that I had to change the language in the TV Settings. How do you do this when everything is in Russian? No instruction manual that was of any use. Tried to go online but there was no Internet. I could log onto WiFi but kept on getting message that there was WiFi but no internet. Contacted Steve and he told me what I had to do to get the Internet. Eventually got online and found out ( after a while ) how to change language back to English but I had no idea how to get non BBC channels. Tried an automatic retune but apparently with Freeview this is difficult without Ethernet cable and no way of connecting to Reuter. Anyway, eventually gave up with TV. Did it spoil the break? Not really but it was a nuisance. Hence I cannot give the Apartment top marks on this occasion.

Comfy bed and very good shower facilities (bath too if you wanted one).<br/>Sadly internet signal was poor at times and this affected our TV viewing a couple of times however the apartment had DVD's available.<br/>There is no on-site parking (except for unloading/packing car} because of the very central location. However there is parking available on roads very close to the apartment so it wasn't a problem.

Would also benefit with a better shower mat for the bathroom floor as the water got every where and didn’t want to spoil the lovely flooring.

Lovely bedding, pillows and a very nice mattress. Very colourful, well equipped and very central. A very good shower. Very quiet as it's an a quiet street. Nice cups, tea pot, lovely table and chairs. The host left milk, tea, coffee, and other things one needed for a short stay. Under counter fridge is generous and a box freezer in the storage area. Easy to use induction hob and over. Nice to be able to open the door out to the patio. Key safe inside easyto use. Lovely towels for all. Really nice size bedrooms but no wardrobes nor drawers. Only a mobile Iron/metal rack for clothes. If you're an OAP not easy to bend and live out of suitcase. But it was ok for three days. Free parking called potters gate only two min walk. Parking disc available for £1 at all retail shops and you can park free for 2-3 hours with that too. A great place to stay.<br/>The outside door on the street was very hard to use. Though the code was correct and you turned " clockwise," it still didn't open many times. This stops me from going out early for a walk, afraid I wouldn't be able to get back into the building. It needs changing. It's a small issue. Upstairs toilet seat moves and not adequate. There's no wall units in the kitchen, and all the base units are in use, so there is no storage space at all for food, cereals, tea, etc, except the fridge. We brought lots of food but couldn't store it. It would be nice to have glasses for orange juice, but there are wine glasses and 4 very large other water / beer glasses. We used the "shot" glasses for orange juice. All in all lovely for a short stay Thank you.

The property was beautiful & immaculate. The location was perfect & in the centre of Alnwick. The children loved the little touches such as the games and toys cupboard.<br/>Unfortunately there was nowhere near to park on the day we arrived.

Very convenient apartment right in the center of Alnwick just opposite the castle. The apartment has just been renovated and the interior is brand new. Quiet and with and own patio to sit outside. Very much recommended.

amazing we loved the place, so beautifully decorated and clean .. had everything you needed and more, the kitchen area was so clean ..all the things you need for a holiday apartment and more. The kids room was smashing and out 2 just loved it, the little gaming zone gorgeous touch and the box of toys . The dvd selection very good also, fabulous.. if you like nice things and appreciate the little things you will love it here,we hope to return again .. Thankyou for having us . ? ohh and the location is just wow ?.<br/>not that we didn’t like it as it was fine for 3 nights and the mattress and duvet were very comfy but the main bed is only a double, just a bit smaller than what we are used to .. so we were a bit snug<br/>(not that my hubby complained) ? for many this will be fine we are just used to a super king, so just to be aware. Not something we didn’t like but just to be aware of.

Sehr schönes und sehr zentral gelegenes Appartement. Alnwick als Städtchen ist ideal als Ausgangspunkt für Northumberland. Supermarkt innerhalb von 150 Meter.<br/><br/>Parken ist natürlich (zentral gelegen) zuerst eine kleine Herausforderung. Rundherum (max. 100 Meter) gibt es aber mehrere Möglichkeiten.

fantastic location beautiful decor<br/>needs curtains in front bedroom instead of blinds to help block out light and dampen noise as road outside noisy at night and mornings<br/>could do with an extra loo - covert toy cupboard in sore room to an ensuite - much better for price etc

Booking was for apartment only.<br/>We arrived in the early evening, being nearly December it was already dark and cold, but there was no heating on in the apartment. The hosts knew our arrival time, so why wasn't the heating on? I found the instruction book, which claimed that the heating came on automatically at 17 degrees, but as all the radiators were set at zero that was never going to happen was it? We had to sit in our coats until the rooms warmed sufficiently. The kitchen radiator stayed cold throughout our visit. The apartment was well furnished, but both the bedrooms windows faced straight out onto the pavement at ground level and there were no privacy blinds, just one blackout one for each window. This meant that unless you really like having an audience the rooms could not have any natural light during the day, which made them gloomy and uninviting to be in. I don't understand why this was never considered during furnishing. As the front door is reached along an open passageway there was a stiff draft under it straight into the lounge, which we mitigated with a folded blanket. Also regarding the bedrooms, being right on a road there was a lot of traffic noise, which of course is not the owners fault, but I ended up sleeping on a mattress in the lounge to get away from it. The mandatory cleaning fee was £60 (included in the overall booking price) which for a two night stay seems pretty toppy. This place is expensive for what is offered and I wouldn't book it again. £347 for two nights in the off peak season isn't particularly cheap, and I expected better.

Absolutely everything. Fabulous location with excellent facilities and so beautifully designed. Would definitely return. Recommend The Dirty Bottles and Adam and Eve for delicious food and ambience and Ruby Tuesday for shopping. Enjoyed our walk from Craster to Dunstaburgh with a drink in the beer garden at the pub in beautiful autumnal weather?<br/>Nothing

The location was central and the apartments were excellent being comfy and clean.<br/>The step from the kitchen to the sitting room needs to be marked as a few of us missed it and tripped down it

Pretty central location. Very clean. Well presented. Good kitchen & bathroom facilities. Easy parking. Quiet.<br/>Tall dining table & bar stools were impractical. <br/>Location instructions need to be more precise..we spent a long time trying to find it!<br/>It should be mentioned that WiFi isn’t free. <br/>A corkscrew would have been useful.

Beautiful stylish apartment decorated to a high standard. Excellent location and spotlessly clean. Extremely well equipped kitchen with everything you need. Very comfortable bed.<br/>The sofa was a little uncomfortable if sitting for a long time but plenty of cushions. There was nowhere to put soap/shower gel/shampoo in the shower.

The flat is very comfortable and stylish in a very convenient situation. also very clean.<br/>A little bit short of natural light but it is an old building so that can be expected. lots of artificial light

Fabulous place beautifully and exceptionally well decorated and absolutely spotless clean. Everything and much more than we needed for a very comfortable stay everything looks brand new. Found free on street parking easily. 2 mins walk to castle, pubs, shops and lovely restaurants. Great base for us to explore Northumberland. Highly recommended.<br/>Only tiny complaint is maybe needed something extra to cover bedroom windows as it's bottom floor next to curb so we kept curtains fully drawn all the time as you can see into bedrooms from curb at eye level.

Very central to town centre. Apartment was spotless and contained everything that you would need in a visit. Safe entry into apartment block and easy access to flat. Two very minor points. The first was that it was up two flights of stairs which could be a problem for some people. The second point was that you had a walk to park your car long term.<br/>Nothing.

Brilliant location - handy for visitor attractions and local services. Quiet despite being on thoroughfare.<br/>Very well equipped and clean apartment -had everything that was needed.<br/>Very comfortably furnished , beautifully themed and <br/>co-ordinated decor.<br/>Beds very comfortable, bedding and towels supplied were of good quality and spotlessly clean.<br/>Concise information booklet to support stay.<br/>Good and timely communication with owners.<br/>There was nothing not to be liked just a couple of things to be aware of.<br/>The front entrance door lock took a little bit of mastering, but practice made perfect and once familiar with the operation it was plain sailing and not a problem.<br/>The "tricky" being new to the property is locating suitable parking....a bit of research and planning in advance helps and once familiar with the location of the property there are plenty of parking options, but they may involve a short walk. This is not a criticism of the property itself - just something to be aware of.
