Description from owner

Description

Arguably one of the best self-catering holiday cottage properties in Alnwick, Castle Retreat provides the very best in luxurious accommodation and certainly has the wow factor! Situated on the top (second) floor of a Grade 2 listed townhouse, it is away from the hustle and bustle of the town, yet within easy reach of everything Alnwick has to offer.

This romantic retreat is perfect for two and ideally placed for exploring the town, the castle and, indeed, the whole of Northumberland. Just a few minutes' walk into the centre of town, everything is on the doorstep, yet because it is not on the main streets, the apartment is very quiet and peaceful.

This one-bedroom luxury apartment, with a spacious lounge / diner and bedroom, is flooded with natural light and is extremely comfortable. Completely and sympathetically refurbished to the highest standard, the apartment combines modern contemporary living with traditional period features. Warmed with full gas central heating throughout, there is also a tasteful electric wood-burning-effect stove in the lounge for ambience. Castle Retreat has been awarded 4 Stars by Visit England and a prestigious Gold award for excellence in self-catering.

We offer full-week stays starting on Monday or Friday, 3-night weekend breaks starting on Friday, and 4-night midweek breaks starting on Monday. For more details, seasonal and short break prices, up-to-date availability and special offers search for "leaholmecottages".

Castle Retreat can be booked in conjunction with Barbican View which is a separate apartment on the ground floor of the same building, also sleeping two people (plus travel cot if requested).

Getting around

Alnmouth is well served by buses up the coast via Craster, Newton-by-the-Sea, Seahouses and Bamburgh, making day trips and walks in the Northumberland Coast AONB very convenient. There are frequent buses to the East Coast main line rail station at Alnmouth, from which you can get trains to Newcastle, Edinburgh, etc. There are also express buses to Newcastle. However, most visitors will prefer the convenience of a car allowing trips inland to the Northumberland National Park, Cragside, Kielder Water, Hadrian's Wall and Newcastle (just under 45 minutes away).

Interaction with guest

You can arrive any time you like (after 4pm unless by arrangement) and let yourself in using the key code. We will try to contact you within the first 24 hours to make sure that all is well. Our housekeeper lives nearby and in case of domestic mishaps we can arrange help as necessary.
