Castle Retreat | A pet-friendly historic apartment with stunning views, half a hop from Alnwick Castle in Northumberland

Castle Retreat is a pet friendly romantic bolthole for a couple who want a beautiful getaway where they have every modern comfort while being surrounded by the quaint streets and amusements of a bustling historic town. Alnwick Castle is just outside your door, with its towers statues made famous after they featured in Harry Potter, and the beautifully landscaped Alnwick Garden is only a few minutes away – and to top it all, you can be by the sea in 20 minutes.

We reckon this bespoke designed second floor apartment is a retreat that boasts comfort and style in equal measure. Step up from street level and you’ll find a modern lounge and dining area with original oak beams, and great views from the original style window. There’s a stove with wood-burning effect on a slate hearth to add to the cosy feel, along with contemporary glass dining table and plush luxury velvet chairs, for romantic meals in.

On cosy nights, you can sit back and make the most of a large wall-mounted smart TV, along with free wifi. The room feels like a home-away-from-home, with soft furnishings, cosy lighting and artwork, making it a great place to chill out after a day exploring Northumberland.

From here, wander through to the kitchen and you’ll find everything you need to cook up a stand out dinner. There’s even a Tassimo coffee maker, with an initial supply of pods, so you can treat yourself to a morning coffee.

Through the door, you’ll find Castle Retreat’s bedroom, which boasts stunning views of the castle’s barbican, and a large wall-mounted smart TV. This is a super comfy room with a king size bed, along with luxury linen and fluffy white towels, so you’ll stay in total comfort. Next door to here is a shower room with large walk-in frameless glass shower, along with luxury complimentary toiletries.

Make the most of the local area while you’re here – as there’s lots to do around Castle Retreat. Alnwick is an ideal hub for exploring Northumberland and the owners of this property recommend you seek out and explore Bamburgh Castle, Cragside House and Gardens, Dunstanburgh Castle, and Hadrian’s Wall, for starters.

There’s plenty of food and drink to sample while you’re in the area too. Alnwick itself has a cluster of nice cafes and mini bistros to explore. We also like the look of the Craster Seafood Restaurant, and we really fancy a trip out to the coast to sample the delights of the famous Potted Lobster.

There is on-street parking for one car thanks to the owner’s permit, and you can bring one small and well behaved dog with you on your stay for the humble added sum of £20.
