Jackie and I had a great 4 night stay at the Airman's Watch. The place had everything we needed and more It was immaculate with classy furnishings. The communication with Natalia was first class and everything went like clockwork.
We shall return.

Mr John Bullivent, 

Sentry Cottage: Beautifully restored and spacious accommodation with all mod cons. Enjoyed Alnwick which is an excellent centre for exploring the area.


We had an excellent week in Airman’s Watch, the apartment was spacious, comfortable and in a great location to visit the pubs and restaurants of Alnwick and only a short drive from the best of Northumberland’s beaches, coastal attractions and castles.
The parking permit ensured we never needed to look for parking. A great accommodation, highly recommended.

Sentry Cottage is in a great central location with easy access to Alnwick amenities. Very clean and spacious. Would recommend.


The Airman’s Watch is a great base for a holiday in Northumberland. It’s in a great location- a 5 min walk into Alnwick town centre, Alnwick Castle and Alnwick Gardens but still very quiet. It had everything we needed for our stay. I would highly recommend.


We had a wonderful week stay in the Airman’s Watch, very comfortable and spacious, everything you need in a home from home and a very pretty garden. Fantastic location to explore Alnwick, and the wider Northumberland area too. Natalia was a lovely host and we would not hesitate to recommend a stay here. thank you for a lovely week.

Laura & Tom , 

Sentry cottage is a fantastic place to stay when you’re in Alnwick. It is central with easy access to Alnwick Gardens and castle. The beds are extremely comfortable and our 5 year old commented it was the best bed he’d ever slept it. Natalia the host is very welcoming and makes sure that you have everything you need. I would make sure that you book restaurants in advance as these can get full up quite quickly. We hope to return again next year.

Sentry Cottage: Lovely cottage, right in the centre of Alnwick with parking. So handy for all the restaurants, cafes and shops and walking distance to Alnwick Castle and gardens. Very good host, who answers any questions promptly, checks to make sure everything is okay and leaves treats!

Sentry Cottage, Alnwick: Centrally placed ideal for all the many local attractions. Spacious and immaculately clean, we felt very Covid safe.
All amenities as listed plus quite a few not listed. Nathalia's attention to detail was brilliant.


We have the most perfect stay at Sentry Cottage. So clean and gorgeously decorated with original brick features everywhere. And perfect location for exploring Alnwick and the many surrounding beaches and towns. The hosts were delightful and helpful. Would definitely stay again! 10/10


Liked everything about Airman’s Watch : the spacious rooms; great kitchen; lovely garden with all the birds; very easy to walk into town or drive to lots of countryside and seaside places.
Super holiday.

Paul and Kristina , 

The Airman's Watch: Difficult to add anything to previous comments as all was as we had come to expect, super clean, roomy, close to town and surrounding places of interest, friendly hosts. The garden was lovely, right on the main road but somehow very private. The welcome treats were much appreciated.

Lynne and Keith, 

Sentry cottage is beautifully furnished and had everything we needed, including a very handy parking space right in the centre of Alnwick. Easy walking to the castle and gardens, and central for all of the local shops and amenities.Natalia was a lovely, communicative hostess, and gave us lots of information about exploring this fabulous area. We will be back to stay again!

Jo Milborne , 

Sentry Cottage is a perfectly placed cottage in Alnwick. It has everything you need, is very clean and has been lovingly restored. Natalia was very welcoming and helpful. We all had a fantastic break in sunny weather - couldn't ask for more!


The Airman's Watch: Lovely place, very clean and in a perfect location too. Host was excellent and extremely helpful. Had a lovely time and hope to visit again soon.


We have just returned home after another excellent stay in The Airmans Watch.
The welcome we received from Natalia and Brian was fantastic and really made us feel that we were at home, amongst friends We tried to visit different places to those we went to when we previously visited - we enjoyed trips to the Farne Islands, Craster and we loved the simplicity of Boulmer. WE also enjoyed a lovely Italian meal at Cafe Tirreno that I would thoroughly recommend (service was excellent)
All in all a lovely stay , many many thanks.
Linda and Bryan

Linda Carson, 

Another wonderful stay at the Airman’s Watch. Perfect location to walk into Alnwick, explore the coast (only 10 minutes from the gorgeous Alnmouth beach). The apartment is always spotless and well equipped with a lovely garden area to sit out in. The hosts are really helpful and provide lots of information on local eateries/things to do etc. We’d highly recommend!

Genan & Juan, 

Sentry Cottage-
Excellent accommodation Could not fault anything


Sentry Cottage: Lovely cottage, clean, well equipped and central.


The Airman’s Watch is in a great location, not only for being based in Alnwick , but for exploring all the local area has to offer. The apartment is spacious and has a great feel to it, we had a great stay and will definitely return- only just scratched the surface of discovering Northumberland.


The Airman's Watch
Great place and a fantastic location. Nathalia is a great host - and was really helpful with tips and making sure we had all we needed when we arrived. I highly recommend staying here!


We had a lovely stay in Airman's Watch, it is clean, warm and comfortable. It is perfectly located for all the things we wanted to do like visit the amazing Barter Books close by and, of course, Alnwick Castle and gardens. The garden is lovely, it made sitting at the table in the big bay window really pleasant; would love to come again in summer and enjoy sitting out at the garden table.

Jenny & Ivan, 

Had a great week Alnwick. Great accommodation and very central. The airmans watch has all the things you need to relax and recoup after a day exploring the area. Great area to link to the Northumbria coast. I would say stay here but then if I did you would be taking space from us staying lol. But seriously a great little find. Cant wait to go back and explore more of the area.

Carl & Phil, 

We had a lovely week in Alnwick staying at the Airman's Watch in Aug 2020. All was very clean, comfortable & well equipped. Fridge was equipped with a few essentials (milk/water..) on arrival which was a welcome surprise, enabling a nice cuppa after a long drive. Friendly & helpful host. Good location. Parking not guaranteed but never had too much trouble finding a space.

Kerry & Arun Cooke, 

We stayed at the Airman’s Watch for two nights and had a lovely time. The place was sparkling clean and in a lovely location. The little garden is perfect for sitting out in. Even though the location is central and near a road, it feels very peaceful and quiet. We booked last minute and were made to feel very welcome. Thank you!

George and Katie , 

Another wonderful week staying at a very comfortable Sentry Cottage. Proved ideal for visiting old haunts and visiting relatives in Scotland. Thank you for the welcome!

Kathy and Nick, 

We recently enjoyed a pleasant week's stay at Sentry Cottage. The cottage is comfortable, well equipped and very well situated - a few minutes level walk into the town, Barter Books and Alnwick Gardens. Alnwick is an ideal base for exploring both the Northumberland coast and for hill/moorland walks.

Ian Ferguson, 

Love this place. We have stayed at Sentry Cottage twice now and think it's fairly certain we'll be back as we love the area.
The cottage was perfect for our family of four, plenty of space, clean, warm and ideally located to explore Alnwick and the surrounding countryside. Three bedrooms gave both our teenagers a room each and the all important (for them) WiFi worked perfectly.
Natalia is a wonderful host, lovely to meet on our first visit and very considerate on our second as we ventured out in the first week since lockdown eased. Cannot recommend this cottage highly enough.
