Description

Braeside is a Victorian, stone-built terraced cottage situated on a quiet leafy street within the historic and popular market town of Alnwick, offering charming and stylish accommodation. A generous hallway leads to a tastefully furnished living room, and there is a large kitchen/dining room positioned to the rear of the ground floor which leads to a conservatory overlooking the fully enclosed patio. Both double bedrooms (the master is en-suite) are on the first floor along with a separate dressing room and family bathroom too.

There is a wide array of amenities within Alnwick, including a cinema/playhouse, restaurants, independent shops and a variety of pubs. Alnwick Castle, just a mile away, is home to the Duke of Northumberland (and film location for Harry Potter’s ’Hogwarts’) and is a popular visitor attraction. Visit Alnwick Gardens, a spectacular interpretation of a formal garden, which includes a grand cascade waterfall, poison garden and a restaurant set in the largest tree house in Europe.
Braeside is an excellent choice for those seeking a homely base that gives easy access to explore the beautiful 20-mile stretch of Northumberland Heritage Coast to the east, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the wild and lonely expanses of the heather-capped Cheviot Hills to the west. Beach 4 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

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.
