Wesley House is simply divine!  Steeped in history with charm in abundance this fabulous property oozes the epitome of holiday accommodation.  John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, laid the first stone of Wesley House and its adjoining chapel in 1786.  A century later it was extensively remodelled and extended by the acclaimed architect F.R. Wilson to create this imposing building. Today, it's been cleverly restored and refurbished with oodles of style to create the contemporary ambience desired for modern living.
This quirky and interesting house now offers excellent and flexible holiday accommodation; namely Wesley Rowan and Wesley Holly.
Wesley Rowan is accessed via a superb decked and terraced pathway to the left. With one double bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor and a twin bedroom with en-suite shower facilities on its first, this property is suitable for 4 guests or couples looking for spacious, historic and unique accommodation. 
Wesley Rowan offers the perfect location for those wishing to combine convenient access to a wide range of town facilities whilst still being able to enjoy the outdoor experience of the wild and lonely moors and hills across the Northumberland National Park to the west coupled with easy access to the magnificent stretch of golden, sandy seashore this region is proud to have designated as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Wesley Rowan comfortably accommodates 4 guests and can be booked individually or together with Wesley Holly, where an interconnecting hallway can be opened up on the first floor to give flexible accommodation making this entire property easily suitable for 10 / 12 guests who seek luxurious and contemporary accommodation in a property where a foot in the door is a step in the past!

About the local area

Alnwick is in the heart of Northumberland, famous for its unspoilt beauty, and is one of the most picturesque areas of countryside in England - with long sandy beaches, quiet friendly villages, the Simonside and Cheviot hills, well preserved medieval Castles, and gardens.

There are numerous Stately Homes in the area including the fantastic Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland and often referred to as "The Windsor of the north". The medieval market town originally prospered as a staging post, being only a day's ride from Berwick-upon-Tweed in the north and Newcastle upon Tyne in the south. It still retains many of its cobbled streets, narrow alleys and fine stone buildings which now house a range of specialist shops and family businesses as wells as some of what once totaled over 50 inns.

Alnwick Castle, the home of the Duke of Northumberland, provides a wonderful day out for all the family. It has magnificent spacious grounds designed by Capability Brown, domineering medieval towers, a 14th century dungeon, beautiful State Rooms and there are various museums covering the region's military and archaeological history. Next to the Castle is the spectacular Alnwick Garden where you can experience The Grand Cascade with its many weirs and fountains, The Ornamental Garden with more than 15,000 plants, The Rose Garden of walkways heavily scented with climbing and shrub roses, clematis and honeysuckle, and there are many 'secret' gardens where you can sit amongst the pergolas, fruit trees and individual pools. Because it is a continually developing garden with major projects always underway, it provides something new for those that return time after time.

The Alnwick countryside is also a great area for walking, short and long hikes, cycling, fishing, and in fact every kind of country pursuit. South east lies the valleys and heather topped expanses of Coquetdale and the Simonside Hills around Rothbury - a haven for hillwalkers and cyclists and a gateway to the Northumberland National Park.

The coastline of the Alnwick region consists of over 20 spectacular miles of golden sands, rocky outcrops and sand dunes which provide fun days out for all the family and peaceful beach strolls along the sweeping sands of Druridge Bay and Cresswell. Coastal villages include the lively harbour town of Amble, beautiful Warkworth with its magnificent castle, and picturesque Alnmouth, home of the oldest golf course in Britain.

What our customers say about Wesley Rowan

W Deverill -

Excellent property, everything very clean and tidy. Basics like milk and bread were provided which was a lovely surprise

J A Irwin -

We were delighted with the property

J R Lickman -

We had a really great time. The cottage was delightful and we would be happy to stay there again, next time we are holidaying in the area.

V J Sargent -

Lovely property - welcome pack was a really nice touch, comfortable and well equipped. We may well be back.

D Shaw -

First class accomodation, everything catered for.

T Walker -

Well presented, spacious and clean. Good kitchen facilities / utensils etc.

J Tyner -

This is a lovely cottege; it is located down a narrow lane in a quiet part of Alnwick. The cottage is a substantial 300 year old building. We were sharing with friends and there was plenty of space for privacy. The kitchen is very well equipped - way beyond that expected in a holiday cottage. Because of the unseasonably cold weather, it was cold when we first arrived. However, one telephone call to the owners brought an extra heater in a few minutes. The welcome basket of fruit, milk and bread was a welcome nice touch. We were left with the impression that nothing would be too much trouble for the owners. The lounge had a large digital TV and DVD player, the bedrooms also have TVs. A pay as you go internet dongle is available from the owners if required. This was a lovely location for a relaxing few days away. Our only mistake was not booking to stay longer!

B Mclaughlin -

The property was excellent for our requirements. It was in the town centre but away from the main street. It had its own garden and enough space to park on the road outside. The standard of decor, comfort and cleanliness was very high. The accommodation was spacious and the equipment provided had been well thought out. It was a bonus to have milk, bread, butter and fruit waiting for us on arrival.

M Wilkins -

The owners have thought of providing everything. We had arrived armed with dishcloths and washing up liquid etc. but these were all supplied. They also left us a welcome pack of fruit, tea, coffee, butter etc which we had not expected. We could not have asked for anything more.

C J Hyde -

The cleanliness was the best I have come across which was particularly important to us as some of our family have dust mite allergy. The owner and cleaners were helpful.

Se Weston -

Welcome goodies on arrival was a lovely touch.
