Peaceful Listed Cottage attached to Pele Tower with log stove

Historic cottage in Alnwick
Situated amongst the hills, castles and beaches of Northumberland, Tower Cottage was originally built in the 16th Century, and is attached to the Pele Tower (dating from 1280 - also on HomeAway property 1873651) and like the tower, is Grade 2* listed. The great stone wall (complete with carved graffiti) forms one side of the kitchen. With a well equipped kitchen, and two double bedrooms, walk-in shower and large living room with log stove, it is a great place to wind down and spend a proper Northumbrian weekend in the hills. It has fields running down to an orchard and to the river in the middle of the village with lovely views into the Cheviots. Historically, it was the birthplace of Henry Ogle, inventor of the reaping machine in 1822 - a major contribution to modern farming.

Pets are welcome (no more than two, and not in the bedrooms - please have a mind to the fact that the next guests may be allergy sensitive)

If you wish to rent the Tower and the cottage together for a larger party, please contact us.
Guest accommodation at this cottage offers coffee/tea makers and a hairdryer. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils. Bathrooms include a shower.

5/5 Excellent

Just as good as last time
Second trip for us & it was fab. Toasty warm even in October & we didn't need to use the fire. Holy Island & Bamburgh not far. Wild goat spotting in the Cheviots. A great base, comfortable & beautifully furnished. Thanks to the owners again.

Short break
A very comfortable cottage to stay in . Beautifully interior designed. Anne

4/5 Good

Clean property but not as quiet/private as we had expected.
Very clean property quite hard to find down a narrow track. Really good size garden but overlooked by a row of houses to the right of the property. Apart from a watching neighbour who appeared each time we went out and noise from people staying in the tower which the cottage is attached to we had a nice stay. Good size well equipped kitchen and good size living room and well equipped. Bedrooms both narrow with not much space to get in and out of bed but very clean and blinds effective in keeping the sun out. The bathroom has the shower in the middle of the room and the floor never dried completely so had to walk across a wet floor to get to the toilet. The cleaner arrived at 10.05 on check out day when our check out time was 11. She was disappointed as "they have a lot to do". Overall we enjoyed the stay but the property was not as quiet as we had been lead to believe and which is what I was looking for. I would recommend a stay to others if you are not as penantic about noise and being overlooked like I am!!

5/5 Excellent

Cosy & Relaxing, Peaceful haven
We stayed while the rest of the family were in the adjoining Pele Tower so we had the best of both worlds. The cottage has everything you need and is also beautifully furnished and decorated. V comfy beds! The weather was warm and sunny so we had all our meals on the sundeck in the meadow admiring the lovely views including amazing sunsets. The combination of historic walls with ancient carvings and modern comfort is great. A few minor quibbles about the wifi coverage (sharing the castle router doesn’t really work) More information about the property & local facilities would have been useful.
