Property Details

The Space
Earl Grey is a newly refurbished, first floor apartment in a historic Grade II listed building. Situated in the centre of Alnwick, it has everything you could want for a stay in Northumberland.

The quality of the refurbishment is evident in the open plan living room, kitchen and dining area. In here you’ll find a comfy sofa and matching armchair where you can relax after a day of exploring. From the tall window, you have a wonderful view of the street below. Turn on the flatscreen Freeview TV and you’ll have a wide selection of channels to choose from.

Fancy something to eat, or maybe a cuppa? The modern kitchen shares this open space, so there isn’t far to go when you need to grab a snack or prepare a meal. Appliances aplenty are found here, including a dishwasher as nobody needs to be washing up during their holiday!

When you need to get ready to go out or head off to bed, the apartment's modern bathroom suite has a walk-in shower plus a brand-new wash basin and WC.

When sleep calls, both bedrooms offer luxuriously relaxing surroundings, each with a double bed.

With cobbled streets lined with independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants, the market town of Alnwick has charisma and personality in abundance. If you’re a keen reader, head to the old railway station and you’ll find one of the UK’s largest second-hand bookshops. As night falls, venture to one of the lively inns to enjoy live music.

Alnwick also has some of the country’s top attractions including Alnwick Castle, which was the location for the famous Harry Potter film franchise. Discover a realm of adventure by taking on the Dragon Quest or complete broomstick training in the very spot where Harry Potter had his first flying lesson. Head to the Artisan Courtyard to have fun dressing up in medieval costumes and get a feel for 14th century life. You can also explore The Alnwick Garden where you’ll find 12 acres of magnificent gardens and the world’s largest treehouse restaurant.
