A lovely cottage. Very clean and well presented. A great deal of attention given to decoration and furniture. Ideal location for touring Northumberland. We were looking for a cottage in a central town location that offered easy transport routes to other tourist attractions. We wanted to be able to walk to restaurants, cafe’s, historic attractions and shops. Tom’s Cottage offered all these and more. It was a very clean and tidy cottage with every appliance we needed, it was just like being at home.

Tips from a local

Visit The Alnwick Garden and explore the spectacular Treehouse restaurant and fascinating poison garden. The gardens are open all year round, and Alnwick Castle is also a fantastic day out for the family (of course made more famous for its use in Harry Potter!) and is open March through til October.

Tips from a local

Take a walk around Hulne Park in Alnwick, once the hunting grounds of the Percy family and open to the public during the day. Click here to download some routes around Hulne Park, but unfortunately dogs aren’t allowed.

Tips from a local

Head up to Barter Books in Alnwick,  the old Victorian train station converted into the most fabulous bookstore, about 10 minutes’ walk from the cottage. Every book you can possibly imagine is here, even some very valuable first additions on display. They have a lovely café converted from the old waiting rooms in the station if you wanted a nibble and something hot to drink. As the name suggests, you can bring old books into Barter Books and exchange them for credits so you can buy something new (or old!) to take home. Pick a good book and get settled in front of one of their many open fires. Dogs and snoozing welcome!
