Guest Feedback for The Dukes

Our visitors’ book at The Dukes is great to read through over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and provide a wealth of recommendations on the best places to eat and visit, as well as some useful tips to benefit other guests. We also send Guest Surveys to all our guests after their holiday and some of their comments are listed here too.

Many guests have listed recommendations for the same lovely places, such as Warkworth Beach, Alnwick Castle and Gardens, Barter Books, Holy Island and the Farnes, but for the sake of avoiding repetition in this particular format, we have omitted these recommendations, but they can still be read in full in the visitors’ books in The Dukes.

chic apartment in alnwick


We have thoroughly enjoyed our week visiting Alnwick for the first time. The apartment is very welcoming, comfortable and a perfect base for exploring the surrounding area. The magnificent castles are amazing and such a gracious coastline, fantastic area no matter what the weather and so much to see and enjoy. Alnwick is beautiful and has great places to eat, we would recommend The Market Tavern, Mumbai Flavours and Di Sopra all serving beautiful food. We would certainly come back.

We love coming to Alnwick and have visited the area many times. We have enjoyed visiting some of our favourite beaches. This week we discovered ‘The Dirty Bottles’ (good food and cocktails) and Grannie’s tearoom all close by. Also, Mumbai Flavours for a tasty curry just a short walk away.

We have had a lovely few days, the weather has been fabulous with all the autumnal colours. Alnwick Gardens and The Treehouse was lovely. We love this coastline having visited many times before but our first time staying in Alnwick which is a really good base for exploring the whole county. Found some very good places to eat – ‘Di Sopra’ for an Italian, ‘The Jolly Fisherman’ in Craster – the fish pie was yummy and of course the famous “Barter Books” for a cup of tea in front of the fire – what more could you wish for? Alnwick Castle & Gardens on Thursday – lovely day. We will recommend Coquet Cottages to friends and family. The coastline is better than the Yorkshire Coast! I’ll be back!

What a fabulous base to spend time exploring lovely Alnwick. Stylish, quality, comfortable in a prime position what’s not to love and meeting both the owners was an added bonus. The welcome hamper suited it’s name perfectly having local beer, good wine in fact everything needed to start your holiday. Too many restaurants to name them all. Thai Vibe – Calm ambience, beautiful presented food packed with flavour. Mumbai Flavours – friendly attentive staff, some Indian dishes with a twist. The Treehouse – if only for the magical atmosphere. The Market Tavern – do a mean gin & tonic! We are so looking forward to getting to know Northumberland. Thank you for making the moving process so much easier. Hope we see you in the future. Our very best wishes Carol & Syd.
