Dodds Nook Cottage
2 bedrooms, sleeps 3
A cosy stone cottage located in the very heart of Alnwick, just a 2-minute stroll from the cobbled medieval market place.
Dodds Nook is perfectly situated for summer, winter and festive breaks, providing an ideal base in central Northumberland for exploring its castles, hills and stunning beaches. On your return from enjoying the dramatic scenery, there are tea rooms, restaurants, pubs and charming independent shops, all within easy walking distance of the cottage.
The famous Alnwick Castle, the setting for Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films, and the Alnwick Gardens with the magical treehouse restaurant, are just a 5-minute walk away. Nearby there is also Barter Book, a renowned second-hand bookshop housed within an ornate Victorian railway station, and the Alnwick Playhouse that features touring productions, live music and popular films.
Built on the site of an old blacksmith’s forge, Dodds Nook has been refurbished and upgraded to reflect the historic charm of the local area.
Paintings by local artist Katherine Renton are exhibited on some of the walls.
The entrance is approached through an archway and leads into an open plan living and dining area, overlooking an attractive courtyard garden. The cosy living area is equipped with Freeview TV, Wi-Fi, and a selection of Northumbrian-themed novels, games and local guides.
The kitchen has a breakfast bar and is equipped with an electric hob and oven, microwave and fridge/freezer. Stairs lead to an attractive main bedroom with kingsize bed and built-in wardrobe. There is also a delightful smaller bedroom with a single bed and matching drawers. The well-appointed bathroom includes a shower over bath and a heated towel rail.
At the rear of the cottage is a small paved area within an enclosed courtyard, which is overhung with trees and shrubs, and has a charming seated area which catches the sun. Ample permit parking areas are located in close proximity to Dodds Nook, and a resident’s permit is provided in the cottage upon arrival.
Alnwick Bus Station is a 3-minute walk from Dodds Nook. Buses serve the coast of Northumberland, including Alnmouth, Craster and Bamburgh, travelling as far north as Berwick-upon-Tweed, and south as far as Newcastle. Alnmouth Train Station is just a 10-minute drive from Alnwick. The Alnwick area and the Northumbrian coast is very popular for walking and cycling holidays, and also famous for its wildlife.
