What a great place, everything you could need for a relaxing break.
The house has been renovated to a high standard and has all the mod cons you would expect (dishwasher etc etc)
Location is fantastic just a short walk (level)from the town and all the great shops and restaurants and pubs.
Beaches are within easy reach the nearest being only 4 miles away and need to been seen to believed .
The area is full of history and it really is a great place to visit, and you would be wise to stay at the Shy Bairns ......

We had a great stay at this lovely house. The location in Alnwick is great as it's in walking distance to the castle and town. The property was very well equipped and everything was clean and well kept. We had a lovely week there and would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in that area.

“Great family house in an exceptional location”
Reviewed 4 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The house was clean and has been beautifully renovated. Whilst not a large house it had enough space for the five of us although it could actually sleep 7. There were no mirrors in the bedrooms which meant a queue for the mirror on the landing in the mornings but this could be easily rectified.The kitchen had all necessary appliances and all were simple to use, could have done with a few more knives and forks though.The beds were extremely comfortable with very fluffy pillows.
The house is perfectly situated for all attractions. Alnwick castle was just a stones throw from the house and is well worth a visit, lots to see and do there and the kids loved the broomstick training. Plenty of nearby beaches, all were clean and also dog friendly. Bamburgh is great and we had a tasty sunday roast at The Victoria there. Kielder Forest is a good day out with lovely walks and water sports.
This was our first family holiday in Northumbria but it certainly won't be our last!
