Striking Victorian period property in the heart of Alnwick’s historic market town. Walking distance to pubs and major attractions and close to the beach. Perfect for families and friends for a unique get together.
Standing majestic and tall, this extravagant home is a lavish base for family reunions and celebrations. Just 5 miles from the sandy beach at Alnmouth, and 15 miles from the edge of the national park, spend sandy days watching the waves or time exploring off the beaten track before winding down for the night in the hot tub or a steam in the sauna. Exuding sumptuous style from the moment you step inside, this palatial abode sleeps 18 guests across nine bedrooms and welcomes two of your trusty dogs to holiday alongside you.
Access to the property is via the main entrance at the back of the property. Climb the steps and surround yourself with the rich colours, plush textures and grandeur of this country house as you arrive and begin to unpack. The former home of famous fishing tackle merchant, William Hardy, antiques and furnishings have been preserved to provide you with a memorable stay. Spend a while relaxing, playing board games or sipping a tipple in the first lounge where an open fire warms the characterful room and creates a cosy ambience. For a moment of peace and quiet, or the perfect coffee spot, make your way into the snug reading room or the bright conservatory. The brilliantly spacious kitchen, leading through to the handy utility room and Butler’s kitchen, has all your designated chef needs to cook up delicious banquets and pack up picnics. Pile the dining table high with delectable dishes and pop open a bottle or two to raise a glass to your fabulous holiday. Enjoy a post-dinner sing-along and a dance if any of your guests are pianists who can tickle the ivories, or saunter outside to the sheltered patio for a dip in the hot tub. With lots of weary heads to rest, the nine bedrooms are fit for royalty with their traditional features and luxurious style. Three of the bedrooms reside on the ground floor, whilst the remaining six can be found on the first floor. Between them, the bedrooms boast verdant views, en-suites and sparkling chandeliers, and one even has its own lounge for lazy mornings and nights. There is off-road parking for nine cars at the rear of the property.
