    Between castles and cobbles in Alnwick

    You'll instantly see why the set scouts for the Harry Potter films put their finger on little Alnwick as you stroll in the shadow of the town's multi-towered castle. With its crenellated keeps and forest of turrets, that mighty Norman fortress shoulders above the grasslands and the winding River Aln – an uber-romantic and enchanting vision of one of England's finest. Around that, an old town of cobbled alleys and diminutive squares lets you feel like you've gone back in time – think cosy pubs and tearooms. Meanwhile, the surrounding Northumberland countryside hosts bucolic lodges and characterful Alnwick holiday rentals aplenty.

    Before you even get stuck into the rich history of Norman invaders and Northern dukes that resides in Alnwick's mighty castle, the gorgeous Northumberland countryside is sure to draw the eye. Ranging from the windswept bays of the North Sea in the east to the crumbling remnants of Hadrian's Wall in the west, it's a mecca for hikers and bikers and motorbike tourers. You can hop between pubs munching on hearty local fare, do pit stops in thatch-topped villages or go on guided wildlife tours to see the owls and otters that inhabit the untrodden countryside.

Although it's still officially inhabited by the Duke of Northumberland, it's actually packed with fascinating little exhibits.

    All about the weather in Alnwick

    Northumberland isn't called Northumberland for nothing – it can get cold this far from London. During the winter months, between November and March, it's especially likely you'll catch temperatures close to or below zero, not to mention see a blanket of snow on the surrounding hills. That's the reason most people seek out their Alnwick holiday rentals for the summer. The months between May and August are the best, offering springtime walks in the country and sunny days for touring the bulwarks of Alnwick castle.

    Bays and beautiful reserves around Alnwick

    Just a stone's throw from the windswept grass dunes and wide bays of the Boulmer coast, Alnwick is intimately linked to the sea. You can trundle down the country roads to discover sandy coves and hearty little English villages spilling onto the beaches. In the other direction are the heartlands of Northumberland. They hit their zenith with the beautiful Northumberland National Park. Bounded by the Cheviot Hills and the Scottish border, it's a place of rock-ribbed fells, bald mountains and woodland, all struck through by the enchanting remains of Hadrian's Wall.
