Welcome to Sentry Cotttage and The Airman's Watch, 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 sand beaches of the Northumberland coast. Its iconic castle set amidst Capability Brown landscapes is a stately reminder of Alnwick’s history, going back Millenia. Both properties are within the important conservation area, offering 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 within sight. The Duchesses famous Alnwick Garden are next door, with poison gardens, a fairy tale tree house restaurant and suspended rope bridges that children will love and Barter Books: one of the largest bookshops in the UK, housed in a splendid Victorian age railway station is opposite. 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 from who want to see a slice of Northumbrian history preserved in all its glory.

The National Trust manages much of the surrounding countryside and the coast has miles of pure white sand beaches, nature reserves and pirate bays to explore and because of this the area is very popular with walkers, cyclists and bird watchers. As for the town itself, the shops, cafes and restaurants are all on your doorstep. Opposite is a very active and renowned theatre Alnwick Playhouse which hosts everything from Shakespeare plays by the Globe Theatre to concerts and everything in between. Look forward to a relaxing and rejuvenating break in beautiful and unspoilt Northumberland.
