This charming Grade II listed property dates back to the 17th-century and is located only a few yards from the entrance to Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland. The property is accessed via a private doorway on Narrowgate where a small passageway leads to its independent entrance. The accommodation is well presented over the first and second floors of the property and is stylishly furnished throughout. The adorable arched door leads to three steps then a further eight to the first floor where there is a bright and airy open plan living space, there is also a bathroom and bedroom which overlooks a delightful courtyard. Further stairs leads up to the second floor where there is a king size bed nestled within beautiful original solid beams and views to the castle.Although the owner’s do not provide a cot, guests are welcome to bring their own.

Dorothy Forster and her brother Tom originally lived in Bamburgh Castle, which had been owned by the Forster family from the 16th century. During the Jacobite Rebellion, Tom enlisted to fight for the Stuart cause and was captured and put in Newgate Goal, London. In a daring plan Dorothy disguised as a servant, travelled to London and using a duplicate key, helped her brother escape and he fled to France. Dorothy arranged for a coffin to be filled with sawdust and placed in the family vault at Bamburgh to outwit the authorities. After Tom’s death in 1738, his body was returned to England and laid to rest in St Aidan’s Church in Bamburgh, and Dorothy was buried alongside him.

This cottage is perfectly situated inside the walled town near to all amenities but as the living area is on the first and second floors the town noise was minimal. We had a very peaceful stay and our hosts had thought about our every need with a plentiful welcome basket,…

My wife, son and I had a great time at this perfectly located, stylish cottage in the lovely town of Alnwick. One of the great things about Jacky and Kevin's cottage is the location which is a stones throw away from Alnwick Castle and Gardens. We spent the full day here and it…

Really lovely cottage in a brilliant location - two minutes to both the castle and town centre. Beautifully finished, with a well equipped kitchen. Bread, milk and homemade jam on arrival were lovely touches. Spotlessly clean throughout. Thank you so much, would love to return.
