Grade II listed ground floor apartment in Alnwick town centre, dog friendly
Leaholme Cottages is a small family-run business, passionate about sharing the delights of our local Northumberland with those who are looking for luxurious holiday accommodation. Lynn is a true Northumbrian, whereas Pete moved to the North-East 20 years ago and has never looked back! We holidayed in Newton many years ago when our daughter was a baby, and loved it so much we went again and again. A few years later we were lucky enough to have the chance to buy Leaholme Cottage where we had stayed several times, and this is how our holiday cottage business was born. Now we can offer our guests, many of who return year after year, a choice of exceptional properties around Alnwick and the stunning Northumberland Coast.
Lynn purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Lynn chose Alnwick
Alnwick is a bustling town, steeped in history but with a range of modern services, which is regularly nominated as one of the best places to live in the UK. It is the perfect base for exploring the history and natural wonders of Northumberland, whether the coastal Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or the Northumberland National Park inland.

Everything about the flat was perfect. It was very comfortable, clean, warm and beautifully finished. The position was ideal, being opposite the castle and within only a couple of minutes walk into the centre of Alnwick. The extra touches of a plate of hoemmade scone, jam and butter awaiting us on arrival and a very generous welcome box , were also very much appreciated. We will stay again.
A cosey apartment, convenient for shops , pubs ,restaurants and entertainment.
Lovely apartment , 11out of 10 for cleanliness. Comfy large bed, excellant shower and bath in large modern bathroom. Kitchen with everything one could wish for. Although not the easiest kitchen to work in if you love cooking as l do. Pretty Lounge with lovely window seat . The only thing we missed was a fire in the grate, even if it was a small electric one. Although the apartment was warm , after a wet walk it would be so lovely to look at warmth as well as feel it. Many Thanks Lynn
Castle Retreat is in the most stunning location for experiencing the very best of what Alnwick has to offer. Alnwick Castle (featured in Harry Potter, Downton Abbey, Blackadder, etc) is literally just across the street, and The Alnwick Garden is just a few minutes away. The famous Barter Books is a 10 to 15 minute stroll on the other side of the town centre. Nearby Alnmouth is a delightful seaside village with a beautiful beach and golf links, or you can head inland to Rothbury (Cragside NT) and the Northumberland National Park, or along the coast (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) to Warkworth, Craster, Dunstanburgh Castle, Embleton, Newton-by-the-Sea, Seahouses and the Farne Islands, Bamburgh and Holy Island (Lindisfarne).
We will send full arrival instructions to you by email, a few days before your holiday.
