Sentry Cottage and The Airman's, both originally built by the Duke of Northumberland are splendid holiday accommodation located in Alnwick, close to the Northumberland coast. 

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 Alnwick properties, as is the 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.  

Kipper Cottage is Grade 2 listed, built for Warkworth Harbour employees in 1837, with views of the Warkworth Castle, Harbour and Marina, all a short walk from Kipper Cottage.
