This romantic, historic apartment is literally metres from Alnwick Castle, with absolutely stunning views from the lounge and bedroom of the Barbican, the turrets and the famous statues featured in Harry Potter, and the Philosopher’s Stone where the Quidditch lesson is taking place. It is a perfect retreat 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.
Castle Retreat is in the most stunning location for experiencing the very best of what Alnwick has to offer. Alnwick Castle is literally just across the street, and The Alnwick Garden is just a few minutes away. The famous Barter Books is a 10 to 15 minute stroll on the other side of the town centre. Alnwick is a perfect central hub for exploring Northumberland. Bamburgh Castle, Cragside House and Gardens, Dunstanburgh Castle, Hadrian’s Wall, Northumberland Heritage Coast and Northumberland National Park are all easily accessible by car.
