Tips from a local
Visit Warkworth Castle. This impressive and well preserved medieval ruin sits in the centre of the village and dates back to the 1100’s, and is now looked after by English Heritage. Once home to the Percy family who currently reside in Alnwick Castle, the history of the castle and village is fascinating, and with its spiral staircases, towers and lawned grounds to explore, the castle provides an excellent afternoon out for all the family, just a 2 minute walk from the cottage.
Tips from a local
Take a walk along the estuary to Amble Fishing Town. Just over a mile easy stroll from Warkworth, Amble offers stunning coastal scenery around the marina, harbour and pier. A browse around the pods in the Harbour Village are a great way to spend an afternoon, visiting local artists and independent shops, with a stop off at The Fish Shack for a bite to eat in the authentic dining hut.
Tips from a local
Visit Bertrams in Warkworth. This cosy, welcoming and dog-friendly Bistro Cafe in the centre of the village is perfect for a hot chocolate by the fire through the winter months, or for a glass of wine out in the sun-trap patio garden. The menu is fantastic with all dishes made on site, or sourced locally.
Tips from a local
One of the world’s most contemporary gardens, The Alnwick Garden was built to break the rules. The Duchess of Northumberland embarked upon a creation of “A huge public garden of classic symmetry and astonishing beauty…” and today, The Garden is not only an inspiring landscape, but the Wirtz International design has combined unique features and spaces to encourage interaction, learning and play.
Martin and Angela
Owners of Rebecca House
We asked Martin and Angela what made them fall in love with Rebecca House:
“We were already regular visitors to Northumberland when we discovered and fell in love with Rebecca House. The cottage takes its name from a painting that hangs on the wall but it caught our attention because we were holidaying with our daughter, Rebecca, at the time. Since then we have come to appreciate its peaceful setting on the banks of the river, in the heart of the picturesque village of Warkworth, and the tranquil garden where we have spent many hours enjoying barbecues with the family on warm summer evenings.
Warkworth has so much to offer with a superb selection of friendly pubs and restaurants as well as its own little chocolate shop. We like nothing better than to start the day with a walk with the dogs along the beautiful unspoilt beach which stretches up to Alnmouth, with its own golf course.
Nearby Amble is a fabulous place for foodies with a superb selection of restaurants and independent shops, including an excellent butcher and fishmonger, all offering that characteristically warm Northumbrian welcome.
As soon as we stepped inside Rebecca House we knew we would be happy here and we certainly haven’t been disappointed. It has become our family retreat, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, where we can enjoy everything that this beautiful part of the country has to offer with all the comforts home.”
