Grade II listed top 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 2017
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.
What makes this Apartment unique
The view from the lounge and bedroom is just AMAZING! Although the property is central to Alnwick, once inside it is calm and peaceful, a perfect bolthole for a couple.

This was a great property, and an excellent location. The welcome pack was very generous and dealings with Lynn were very efficient and straightforward. We really enjoyed our time here and are looking forward to coming back to this fabulous property again.
Thankyou so much for your lovely review of Castle Retreat. We are delighted that you enjoyed it so much that you wish to return. We agree that the location directly opposite the castle is ideal as you are still only a few minutes from the centre of town
We would very much look forward to welcoming you back anytime and I would like to say Thankyou for being such fabulous guests !
Very comfortable, great location
A lovely flat in a period house
Fabulous welcome pack.
The flat was spotless and very nicely decorated. It was comfortable and well equipped although a potato peeler might be a useful addition.
It is well situated for all the amenities in Alnwick and surrounding area and the parking is very convenient. There is loads of information available for the guests.
As we live rurally, the street noise was noticeable to us but we quickly got used to it and the flat is in a town so this is to be expected.
I would and have already recommended this property to others.
Amazing apartment !
Amazing apartment opposite Alnwick Castle and lovely views over the rooftops of Alnwick. It has everything you could possibly need for your comfort..like home from home. It is tastefully furnished, has a well equipped kitchen and the yummy Welcome Tray was so nice. It is easy dealing with Lynn, the owner, she always gets back to you straight away and answers any queries you may have. Thoroughly recommend.
We would highly recommended Castle Retreat!
An ideal property for exploring the surrounding area & perfect location for Alnwick. The view of the castle is wonderful from the lounge and bedroom. The property itself is to an extremely high standard, with all our needs thought of, including a much appreciated welcome package. The parking permit is very useful, even though Alnwick was busy we had no problem parking near the apartment.
Many thanks for your review Jane; we're glad you found the apartment as great as we do, and hope to welcome you back one day. Best wishes, Lynn.
Excellent - perfect location and beautifully furnished.
Thank you Simon - hope you'll be back soon!
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.
