The Details...

Unravel the mysteries of Northumberlands long forgotten past with a stay at one of these two luxury apartments in a Grade II-listed townhouse. Set in the historic streets of Alnwick, opposite its medieval castle grounds, the Leaholme Cottage apartments are in the heart of this captivating town. Discover its twisting, cobbled streets and curious, little stores, touring the enchanting, castle gardens and ancient fort. Visit the golden, windswept beaches on the stunning heritage coastline or the rugged, natural parks and open countryside.

The two one-bed apartments are set in the same stone townhouse and include the ground floor Barbican View and the second floor Castle Retreat. Both have been finished with a homely, country style and have been awarded Four Stars Gold by the VisitEngland tourist board. Expect a mix of sophisticated creature comforts and classic period features next to striking castle views and unique, local artwork.

Spacious living areas are framed by soothing Farrow and Ball colours and are furnished with sumptuous fabrics and luxurious sofas. Look out for the cast iron feature fireplace and the vintage sash windows, or the beautiful slate hearth and original beamed ceilings. There are TVs and DVDs for those rainy days, along with an MP3 docking station and a collection of films and games.

Rustle up three-course meals in the contemporary kitchens, complete with a selection of oak cupboards, quartz worktops and state-of-the-art appliances. Dine around the intimate tables and enjoy a glass or two of wine, before snuggling up on the sofa and letting yourself unwind. The ground floor apartment even has its own private, sun-kissed courtyard, where you can dine alfresco beside a calming water feature.

At the end of the day, you can retire to your relaxing double bedroom, dressed with an indulgent, king-size bed and a pocket-sprung mattress. Each has been topped with crisp, designer bedding and has fluffy towels for the stylish, modern bathrooms.

Directly opposite the apartments, youll find the mesmerising Alnwick Castle famous for its starring role in a number of TV and film productions. Robin Hood and Downton Abbey have both filmed here, while eagle-eyed muggles will recognise it as the magical Hogwarts School.

The spellbinding town centre is also just a five-minute walk and is home to an array of mysterious sights and quaint, market stalls. Explore the majestic Alnwick Gardens and dine in the fairy tale treehouse restaurant or visit the fascinating museums and cultured playhouse theatre. Hadrians Wall and Holy Island are also well worth a visit, along with Bamburgh Castle, Farne Islands and magnificent Edinburgh city.
