Explorer Northumberland

Set amidst beautiful countryside in the heart of Northumberland, Alnwick Lodge offers the ideal base to explore the county’s wealth of tourist attractions and outdoor pursuits.

The historic market town of Alnwick is 1 ½ miles North of Alnwick Lodge, home to the magnificent Alnwick Castle, famous for its role in Harry Potter and Alnwick Gardens/Treehouse, it is beloved by all. The town centre is filled with charming independent shops, family-run restaurants and frequent farmers markets. Barter Books is one of the biggest second-hand bookshops in Europe and residing in Alnwick’s former railway station, it makes the perfect rainy day activity. Steeped in history the town is a vision of historic architecture and home to some of the best Capability Brown landscapes. Hulne Park is the last remaining park of Alnwick Castle and abode to Alnwick Abbey.

The wonderful Northumbrian coast is only four miles away, with Warkworth, Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Lindisfarne Castles all only a short drive.

The surrounding beautiful countryside hides many wonderful gems in the form of Country Houses and Garden Treasures – Wallington, Cragside, and Howick Hall, to name a few.

The Roman Wall, Durham Cathedral, the fantastic open-air Beamish Museum, Cheviot Hills, Farne Islands, the Scottish Borders, Berwick-upon-Tweed and even Edinburgh are all a good day out. Newcastle (25 miles) and the Metro Centre for that ‘wet day’.
