Charming cottage in perfect location

5 of 5
We spent a week here and enjoyed every minute. Juliet Cottage is beautifully presented and the service from Louise and the team is exemplary. Alnwick itself is a lovely place to stay and is within easy reach of the coast and lots of local attractions. Great holiday. Thanks!

We had a great holiday in Northumberland!

4 of 5
We had a great holiday in Northumberland. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and the kitchen was well equipped. The tea, coffee and biscuits provided were a nice touch. The shower was excellent and the bed was very comfortable. We could hear traffic noise from the main road in the mornings though, which we are not used to and was a shame. A travel cot and high chair were kindly provided for our little boy. It was quite a mission to get to the car parking space for us though, with a toddler in tow and all the necessary bags for a days excursion. The proximity to Alnwick Castle and gardens was very handy, and we also really enjoyed exploring Northumberland by car.
