About the property

Apartment in Alnwick, Northumberland, England - Centrally Located, Allowing You To Explore The Medieval Market Town Of Alnwick

Our holiday apartment is located in the town centre, within walking distance of Alnwick high-street, Alnwick Castle and Alnwick Garden. It’s also a great base from which to explore the many attractions Northumberland has to offer including Northumberland coast & castles, Northumberland National Park and the various market towns in the region. Newcastle & Gateshead are just a short drive South or why not take the train to Edinburgh from Alnmouth .The apartment is on the second floor of the Hotspur building. On the third floor is a belvedere (turret) where one can enjoy views over AInwick and the castle in the distance – an ideal getaway for a quiet game of cards, reading or to enjoy a glass of wine. Many of our guests enjoy having breakfast in the belvedere whilst watching the world go by below. The Hotspur apartment is quirky yet the interior is contemporary and is furnished to a high standard with light decor and carpets.Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the apartment

About Richard Wood

We bought the Hotspur apartment in 2007 so we could use it ourselves as well as offer it as a holiday let. We fell in love with the Northumberland area over the following years as we explored it more and more, so much so that we moved (from Leeds) to Rothbury in 2012. The countryside, coast, towns and villages are beautiful and so varied we never tire of it. There is something for everybody here, whether you enjoy walking, cycling, beach activities, castles, culture, Farne Islands, National Trust and English heritage properties, wildlife and most of all - peace and tranquility!

A lovely apartment, ideally situated for walking into the lovely town. We've had some wonderful walks and days out, and nice to return to such a comfortable home from home. Even the stairs seemed to get easier throughout the week! Thank you.

Highly recommended for trips to Alnwick and the wonderful Alnwick castle and gardens.

Good sized rooms for our party of four and the owner really pushed the boat out with little things that all add up.

Excellent accommodation & location

  • 5 of 5

The Hotspur is a quality apartment in a location that makes it easy to reach all that Alnwick has to offer, although it would be a shame not to take the short drive to the wonderful coast. The Belvedere is an added bonus making breakfast time a treat. There are numerous places to eat in Alnwick to suit all tastes.

Overall an excellent option if you are considering staying in the area.

Perfect property

  • 5 of 5

What can I say the apartment was perfect. Richard and Julia really have thought of everything. After a long journey we were particularly grateful for the welcome basket. We had breakfast up in the Belvedere observing beautiful scenery whilst the sun shone in. The apartment was well laid out and have everything we needed and more. The two bathrooms were really useful as our group consisted of two couples. We had a fabulous weekend and plan to return with our children for a family break. Definitely a high class luxury apartment in a well appointed location in picturesque Alnwick
