Neighborhood
Alnwick, a charming market town nestled in the picturesque county of Northumberland, England, is a place where history and natural beauty merge seamlessly. With its roots dating back to Roman times, Alnwick has a rich and storied past that is still very much alive today.

The town is perhaps best known for its stunning Alnwick Castle, a majestic medieval fortress that has stood for over a thousand years. This iconic landmark has played a significant role in both British history and pop culture, serving as a filming location for movies and television series, including the beloved Harry Potter films. Its beautifully manicured gardens, known as the Alnwick Garden, are equally enchanting, featuring ornate fountains, an enchanting treehouse restaurant, and a fascinating poison garden filled with deadly plants.

Alnwick's historic town centre is a delightful mix of cobbled streets, charming shops, and traditional pubs. It exudes an inviting atmosphere that beckons visitors to explore its nooks and crannies. The town's market square is a hub of activity, hosting a weekly market where locals and tourists alike can browse an array of goods, from fresh produce to artisan crafts.

Nature enthusiasts will find Alnwick's surroundings equally captivating. The nearby Northumberland National Park offers miles of unspoiled wilderness, ideal for hiking and outdoor adventures. Alnwick is also a gateway to the stunning Northumberland coastline, featuring sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs, and the Farne Islands, a haven for birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts.

Getting Around
The closest train station to Alnwick can be found in Alnmouth, which is roughly a 10-minute drive from the lodge so local towns in Northumberland can easily be reached via rail. The station has direct routes to Newcastle, Edinburgh, York, Leeds, London and Bristol.

There are a number of bus stops throughout Alnwick and the main bus station is just a short from walk away from Forest Green Lodge. Hop on the X20 which takes you through to Newcastle with stops in beautiful areas of Northumberland like Alnmouth and Amble. The X18 route travels between Newcastle and Berwick-upon-Tweed with stops in Morpeth, Amble and Seahouses.

The nearest airport is Newcastle International Airport, 35 miles away from Alnwick.

The positives - The apartment is lovely and well equipped. It is in a fantastic spot walkable to everything! <br/>The negatives when it rained the guttering drainpipe was so loud it drowned out the TV. <br/>When the radiators were cooling down they made constant intermittent loud bangs which in the middle of the night disturbed sleep. <br/>On the day of checkout the cleaners arrived at 9:20 and were just about to let themselves in until I stopped them and asked then to come back. They signed and then sat outside until we left which was incredibly off putting.<br/>This was also disappointing as we were already losing an hour of our stay due to the clocks changing.

Double bed in the lodge - would have preferred a king size and i think there is room for it but it's a personal preference

The apartment is in a great location just opposite Alnwick Castle and within walking distance of everything in the town. It has a well equipped kitchen and it was great to have a dishwasher too.

Centrally located. Superbly equipped. Quiet and secluded location.<br/>Nothing really but if anything then foliage could do with trimming back on steps leading up to chalet, however it was pointed out that the garden works were in progress

Jane

Had everything two people could need. Comfortable bed, nice shower<br/>The windowsills were very dirty, obviously no-one had thought to roll up the blinds to check. The chrome work in the bathroom was not as clean as you would expect, and the outside area was full of weeds, with a sign on the fence asking us to ‘bear with, as garden under construction’, but it would only have taken an hour to pull up the weeds from the bark clippings, so not what I would have expected

Chalet very comfortable, in an excellent location within walking distance to all the Alnwick attractions. Parking was easy.<br/>Nothing.

Great convenient location close to attractions and town. Well equipped and homely accommodation, nice touch to provide tea/coffee and milk ?<br/>Overall, it is clean and tidy,but a few dusty areas(lamp and kitchen stool bases)<br/>The only downside is that there is no private parking, but given the location that is understandable. Finding close by on street parking can be difficult in peak season. <br/>Decor a bit too 'fussy' for me, too many cushions and fake plants, but that's just personal taste.<br/>Not a negative, just an observation the lodge was very warm, and the weather wasn't even that hot. A fan would have been appreciated, especially to help cool the bedroom and aid sleep.

Beautifully decorated and designed. Great location. Everything you could possibly need on hand. And very spacious ??<br/>The outsides of small double bed/mattress had no real support if you went too close you’d roll off. <br/>Unpleasant smell coming from the drains in the bathroom. <br/>Repetitive echoing sound that you could hear in the lounge that came from the drain pipe every time it rained.

Decor. Location. Peaceful.<br/>Garden. Not good for sitting outside. Not good look. Not good for hay fever sufferer . Thistles were jaggy. Bit of artificial grass would be preferable.

The lodge is perfectly located in the centre of Alnwick with pubs and shops a few minute walk. The people and place is so friendly , with locals helping with recommendations etc. It's also a great spot to connect with all the other great located places such as bamburgh or alnmouth.<br/>The lodge was immaculate and had absolutely everything and more we needed.<br/>It would of been great if our dog could have joined us, but understand that not all places take them.<br/>The lodge and experience was 10/10 otherwise.

Location spot on<br/>That you could not park your car at the property or near the property. Property not good for people with mobility issues. Property was not clean. You could not get a parking spot in the place they said you could. Even if you did you have to remove it within 24 hrs and not go back for 4hrs. They do not tell you that when you book.whole of the area is disc parking only other than short stay or long stay. So they get taken really quickly even though the developer tells you differently. The lodge is through a main door,then a court yard with steps. Imagine trying to do that with luggage from a car park when you have mobility issues. The lodge smelt bad, there was a air freshener plugged in but completely empty.does the cleaner not check? Lodge is spacious but no storage. Went to hang the towels in the bathroom on the hook on the door,fell off,hook had been clued on the door and was unsuccessful. Walked into cobwebs from the door to the bathroom and from the light shade in bedroom to the door. Was greeted by spiders and wood cutters crawling on the bedroom floor. There is a wild garden growing in your seating area outside. But did they not clean the floor? When I checked was there parking on the question and answers there was a response of yes parking for no 35. When I brought this to their attention 10 mins later the question was no longer on the website. Sofa and chair so low to the floor so uncomfortable. Made for children not adults.

Location perfect, loved the decor. Facilities excellent.<br/>Had to move hanging unit as in way of me getting out of bed, but no problem.

Victoria

A really comfortable lodge, which was ideal for our short stay in Northumberland. A nice touch to have a pint of milk in the fridge and a few tea bags/sugar/coffee. Everything had been thought about. <br/>Location-wise, we made the most of being in Alnwick and so close to the castle. Free parking is close by, as mentioned by others.<br/>Nothing

Marilyn

comfortable bed - housekeeping very helpful and sweet<br/>no hot water the first day (these things happen) but only luke-warm water the third day. WAY too much clutter: there were little lamps and artificial plants all over the place and way too many decorative pillows.

The Location and the property are exceptional,the perfect location for a solo visitor or couple looking for a quiet break. It's inspirational in some ways, and a must see. <br/>The perfect property for some "Me time"!<br/>As previously stated the property and the concept is exceptional, and the perfect location, but Alnwick is an old town and Narrowgate is in the shadow of the castle walls, the lighting issue is ine caused by poor council lighting one which thr hosts are pushing the council to resolve, but may find difficulty in a medievil town, access is only an issue for the first time visitor. Please do not let this put you off.

Maureen

no breakfast, location very good<br/>too much style and not enough substance. Seating area was not comfortable, should have been more hanging space and places to put clothing. Bathroom towel rail did not work, shower came away from the wall, shower cubical was too small. Needed outside lights for walking too the lodge at night.

Lydia

The property was clean and beautifully furnished. The location was private without feeling isolated. It was ideally located within Alnwick; shops and restaurants were easily accessible.<br/>We liked everything.

Sally

The location was great for the castle (but not the gardens, which are a lot further away than you expect), and the quirky property and its design were fun.<br/>The property seemed to be in the middle of a renovation site - but that will no doubt be finished soon. The Wifi didn’t work (on, but not connecting to the internet) and the hosts didn’t seem to know what to do about it, even though they were pleasant and keen to help. Parking is a bit difficult, especially at busy times. The property was all about design - colour and style - but some of the furniture and fittings seemed rather flimsy / ricketymeven though the place is apparently brand new, and I wonder how well it will last with occupants coming and going all the time?

Well equipped, very welcoming feel, great location, spotless.<br/>Beautifully decorated<br/>Consider changing smoke detector in kitchen area for a heat detector (wiring regs do suggest this) as anytime we used the oven it would set the smoke detector of this wasnt a problem as I could reach them but my partner would have struggled if she was alone

It was really lovely and the location was perfect. The design of the chalet and the facilities were absolutely great.<br/>The bed wasn't big enough - I'm not sure if it was a small double or the mattress wasn't firm enough but we dipped towards each other which unfortunately made it very unsatisfactory. Other than that, the chalet was fabulous!

John

Clean, modern, spacious lounge.<br/>Full facilities.<br/>More shelving required in bathroom for toiletries.<br/>Draw space for clothing in bedroom would be useful.

Carol

The location is excellent, quiet and secure yet very close to Alnwick Castle. The lodge is as new and is very well appointed. The interior design elements are very tasteful and colour coordinated.<br/>The bed is not king size and there is an over abundance of soft furnishings in the way of cushions and throws.

Kath

The location is great and the lodge is tucked away behind a main street so very peaceful. The lodge was fully equipped for our stay with everything provided.<br/>It's not a dislike but it would be helpful if WHAT THREE WORDS were used to locate the property. Didn't love the kitchen chairs but that is personal taste. I found them uncomfortable for eating. The fridge is quite noisy but I am sensitive to noise.

Jennifer

We had a great stay. Steve & Sarah were very welcoming & the Lodge was amazing, very well equipped & lots of extra touches that you dont get in alot of places.<br/>We would definitely stay again & would highly recommend to anyone.<br/>There was nothing not to like. We wish we had booked for longer.

Found the pictures truly represented the property, well equipped, and a great place to base our stay while we explored the local area. even took advantage of sitting in the garden for a break before going out for dinner.
