We’ve had a wonderful stay in the house which has most things you could need for a stay in this amazing area. Bertie has thoroughly enjoyed his walks along the river and Jacks enjoyed taking plenty of photos of the landscape and wildlife. For dog friendly places to eat, Bertram’s and The Warkworth House Hotel are good in the village. We can thoroughly recommend the walk from Warkworth to Alnmouth and once in Alnmouth The Sun & The Red Lion are both dog friendly. Thank you all so much.Escape the ordinary read our guest book

Tips from a local
Planning a pre-Christmas break to get you in the holiday spirit?
Tie your holiday in with the Warkworth Christmas Shopping evening. It generally happens on the last Friday in November, where most of the shops open in the village for late shopping and mince pies and bubbly. The church host’s tombola’s, raffles and other fun games and the Memorial Hall opens for local retailers to showcase their Christmas stock. The pubs have the best atmosphere on this night, as it is a big community evening to all getting in the spirit of Christmas and you can get a head start on your shopping! If you are planning to eat out in the village that night, make sure you get booked up in advance.
Tips from a local
A special walk around the local village of Warkworth..
Try the Mill Walk which you reach through the castle grounds (over the road from the cottage). Whether you have a dog or not, this is a very pretty route that can takes about 30-35 minutes. Follow the river and it takes you along a beautiful walk along the Coquet River, eventually ending up at the clearing where The Hermitage is located(see more on our page all about Warkworth). Deer can be spotted here as well as lots of other wildlife along the riverbank.

Owners of Honeysuckle House
We asked the owners of Honeysuckle House what drew them to the property:
Four years ago my husband, myself and our pooch Ted decided to have a long weekend in Northumberland. We chose Warkworth, at the time unaware of how lovely it is, and were so impressed over a few visits that we bought Honeysuckle House and have visited regularly ever since.
Honeysuckle House is a modern, comfortable and relaxing house and is conveniently placed for lovely walks by the river and easy access to the beach. We have great local eateries and some lovely shops and are very close to Amble, Alnmouth and Alnwick. In no time at all you can get to so many amazing places including Holy Island, Bamburgh and many more. Away from the coast we regularly visit Cragside, one of the many National Trust/English Heritage locations.
All in all, this is a beautiful area with so much to see and do and yet the simple things like a walk on the beach with the dog, or a short stroll by the river, are why we love relaxing and spending time here.
