Dear Holiday Maker

Welcome to 2 Percy Cottages, our Northumberland home that we bought from the Duke of Northumberland in 2013. If you want a fantastic 3 bedroom, Georgian, self-catering holiday let and perfect home away from home for couples, families and dog lovers this is it.

It's only a one minute walk from Alnwick Castle & Gardens, Alnwick town centre and Hulne Park's 3,000 acres of woodland. The fabulous beaches of Bamburgh and Low Newton, boat trips to the Farne Islands, Lindisfarne and the totally unique Chillingham Castle are only short drives away.

As you'll see from our reviews, this is not just a business for us, it's our second home so we've included home comforts not often found in a self-catering holiday let. These include super comfy furniture (go ahead and tuck your feet under), Wifi, a separate...

We stayed at Percy cottage for a week and found it very handy for the town and surrounding area. The cottage is more of a house and has a well equipped kitchen. The double bed was comfortable and having the ensuite was great. We did...More

About the neighborhood
Alnwick is a beautiful, historic town and was recently named the best town to live in Britain (2013). Alnwick has become one of the country's top tourist destinations with its spectacular gardens, one of the largest treehouses in Europe and Alnwick Castle which was featured in the Harry Potter films. Alnwick is roughly half way between Berwick and Newcastle, making a great base from which to explore the coastline and imposing castles of Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh and the Lindisfarne Priory on Holy Island. Just a short drive away is Seahouses where visitors can take boats to the Farne Islands a favourite site for bird watchers. My favourite new recommendation is Chillingham Castle - privately owned, totally unique & haunted!
Getting around
If you have a car you will find the area very easy to get around. If you don't have a car the good news is everything you need during your stay is within walking distance - groceries, pubs, castle, gardens, walks, playhouse, shops... The nearest train station is Alnmouth which is only 6 miles away and taxis are available to take you to and from. This is a mainline that runs from London along the coast up to Edinburgh which is only an hour and a bit away - close enough for a day trip.
