Driftwood Retreat is a detached stone built cottage a stone's throw from the sea in Boulmer Village. Originally thought to be the Cannon House for the Duke of Northumberland the cottage has now been completely updated to provide top class self-catering accommodation. The cottage is set in a large enclosed garden with a grassed area to the rear and side, with a pebbled patio to the front great for relaxing and soaking up the fantastic sea views. The historic market town of Alnwick is about 6 miles. Here you will find a good range of shops, cafes, a weekly market and a leisure centre. The magnificent castle and gardens are definitely worth a visit. The castle is probably most famous for being transformed into Hogwart's Castle in the first two Harry Potter movies. So throughout the year children can take part in the many activities on offer including the ever popular Broomstick Training with resident wizard professors. The Alnwick Garden was the brain child of the Duchess of Northumberland and has evolved from a derelict site over 10 years ago to an awe-inspiring garden and the magical, unique Tree House Restaurant serving exquisite locally produced food sourced from this region.

It was excellent. The attention to detail was superb just beautiful and in a fantastic location we had a lovely stay. The whole experience from start to finish was professional in every way. Our family holiday was what dreams are made of. I remember turning to my husband a few days in and saying ''It doesn't get better than this''. A holiday we will remember for years to come. Thank you!
