This apartment for two is perfectly placed in the town centre to explore Alnwick’s many attractions, nearby coastal villages, castles and market towns. Walk to Alnwick Castle for a ‘wizard’ adventure. Stroll through Alnwick Garden’s beautiful formal planting and waterfalls, while their famous ‘Poison Garden’ tour is a must. Discover the Playhouse Theatre, cinema, and arts centre, browse and eat in the second-hand book shop with open fires, and enjoy the independent shops, friendly pubs, and restaurants right on the doorstep. Visit Alnmouth’s sandy beach (5 miles) for picnics and dog walks. Travel to Warkworth Castle (7.5 miles) for river walks - you can play golf and have lunch in these lovely villages – or head to Craster harbour (7.5 miles) to find the stunning coastal path to Dunstanburgh Castle followed by a seafood lunch.

Set in what was formerly the ‘Pharmacy Building’, this quirky first-floor apartment, nestled amongst the Grade II-listed buildings in Alnwick, offers a truly magical getaway for two with a themed bedroom and plenty of home comforts to ensure you have a comfortable stay. Enter the impressive front door and up one flight of stairs to reach the apartment door. The open-plan living space includes a lounge area with a large, leather sofa where you can relax to watch a film on the Smart TV, and there are books and games. The kitchen is well-equipped and there is a dining table where you can sit and enjoy meals together when you’re not eating out in one of the many local restaurants. At bedtime, head into the magical charm of the ‘potions room’ themed bedroom with a four-poster, king-size bed, twinkling lights and a collection of fun, curious adornments to make you smile. You might even feel like you’re sleeping in a certain film set from nearby Alnwick Castle. The well-appointed 'room of requirement' shower room completes the accommodation, with a shower and WC.

Outside, on the ground floor, there is a small, shared garden with garden furniture which guests can use for al fresco dining. Access to the enclosed, private four-seater hot tub area is through a locked gate, so you will not be disturbed. There is space to hang your bath robes and towels while you sit and enjoy the bubbles.
