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.

Great apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spacious, very clean and really well equiped. My whole family really loved the apartment. The kids especially loved the secret room upstairs which has amazing views over Alnwick. Alnwick castle and gardens are literally around the corner and the town itself has some lovely shops. We had a great stay and would definately return.

Simply the best trip back to my home town ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

The photos really dont do the flat justice. Its everything you could hope for while staying in Alnwick. I drive alot for work, this week we just parked the car and walked everywhere. Not many places have their own parking in the centre of town. The place is massive, modern, well laid out and very clean. The tower is a great feature to sit and enjoy the views over the whole of Alnwick. Will be back soon. Cheers Guys :)

Fab holiday in Alnwick

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was in a perfect central position. It had everything you need for a comfortable stay, the unusual belvedere was a most enjoyable addition to the property. We appreciated the welcome pack and the bath goodies...very thoughtful. Easy walking distance to castle, shops and restaurants. Would recommend to anyone.
