Alnwick is renowned for its majestic castle, which is home to the Duke of Northumberland (and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Academy!) and offers a wide array of restaurants, tea rooms, shops and pubs all a mere gentle stroll away. There is the added benefit of regular markets and festivals in the square which the property overlooks. Early risers will get a bird’s eye view to grab the best bargains! For indoor entertainment there is a playhouse / cinema and modern leisure complex with indoor swimming close by. Alnwick Garden is an interesting visitor attraction with its Grand Cascade Waterfall and restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe. The wild heather capped expanses of the Cheviot Hills are only a short drive west and the sweeping sandy beaches this Heritage coastline is renowned for are only 5 miles to the east.
