Absolutely first class accommodation. The cottage is exceptionally well furnished and equipped to a very high standard - even down to a sewing kit, hubby lost a trouser button overindulging in one of the many eateries nearby!
We would recommend dining at the Treehouse Restaurant at the castle but for better value and equally great food the Plough is just around the corner - fantastic seafood platter!
Definitely one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in and cannot wait to pay a return visit. Many thanks to the hosts.
A fully modernised two bedroom townhouse. Ideally located, backing onto the old town wall about 20 yards from the gate to the centre of town. Also about 100 yards from the entrance to Alnwick castile and a 6-7 minute walk from the Treehouse restaurant and Barter Books.
The house is extremely comprehensively equipped. In a five day stay we did not find anything we needed that wasn't there. Although the house opened straight onto the pavement and a road, we were never aware of any traffic noise.
Although there was no parking with the property there was plenty of free parking a few yard away, about 60 yards away at the top of the road ad by the castle entrance.
Puddleduck cottage is well positioned in Alnwick. Easy access for unloading our car and we used the free car park by the castle just a few minutes away. The cottage is delightful, it had everything we needed. Janet had left a bottle of wine, orange juice and some chocolate biscuits, all this and the daffodils on the fireplace made us feel very welcome. It was very well equipped, clean and very cosy. We were only a few minutes walk from the castle, gardens, barter books, nice pubs and restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay, if only we could have planned the weather.
An absolutely beautiful cottage. Was immaculate. Lovely log burner which was very cosy when visiting in November. There was a much appreciated welcome basket with wine, orange juice and biscuits on arrival which was a great touch. Brilliant location and easy to access the town and all it's attractions on foot. Would definitely stay here again. So a big thanks to owner Janet for making our stay so comfortable.
This cottage was perfect in every way. It is right in the centre of Alnwick, walking distance to everywhere - The Castle, The Alnwick Garden, Barter Books, shops, restaurants, museums. There is no parking at the cottage but you can load/unload at the door and then a free long-stay car park is at the top of the street, 2 minutes walk away - very convenient. The cottage is beautiful; spotlessly clean, nicely furnished, cosy and comfortable, extremely well-equipped, warm and just the right size for two people. A lovely 'welcome' basket awaited us with wine, orange juice and biscuits and there was milk in the fridge and lovely fresh roses on the hearth. A real home-from-home. I very much hope we'll have the chance to stay there again.
