Welcome to Sentry Cotttage and The Airman's Watch, both providing splendid 4* holiday accommodation in the medieval market town of Alnwick. The town is nestled in beautiful countryside and is close to the stunning white sandy beaches of the Northumberland coast. With Alnwick's iconic castle set amidst Capability Brown landscapes, it is a stately reminder of Alnwick’s history, going back millennia. Both properties are within the town's important conservation area and offer a perfect location for a relaxing holiday or break in Northumberland.
It's all about Location, Location, Location and as you can see from the map, Alnwick Castle (often called ‘The Windsor of the North’) famous for being Hogwarts school for witches and wizards and out of term-time home to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland is an easy walk from both properties. Closer still is the Duchesses famous Alnwick Garden, with poison gardens, the fairy-tale 'Tree House' restaurant and suspended rope bridges that children will love. The famous Barter Books: one of the largest bookshops in the UK, housed in a splendid Victorian railway station is closest yet! Alnwick in Northumberland is picturesque and has previously been voted one of the best places to live in England. It is, quite naturally, a popular place for visitors who want to see and enjoy a slice of Northumbrian history preserved in all its glory.
