The Alnwick Garden and Alnwick Castle can be reached very easily on foot and Barter Books is 5 minutes walk away too. Hulne Park is the park open to the public that wraps around Alnwick Castle and has some great routes to follow. You can reach it in 10 minutes on foot and is very interesting to wander around (no dogs permitted).

Claire Lowrie & Paul Battrick

Owners of St. Paul's View

We asked Claire and Paul what they love about St. Paul’s View:

“We have taken holidays with Coquet Cottages for many years in Warkworth with Claire’s parents and our English Setters (Mostyn and Oliver) and have always enjoyed lovely walks on Warkworth beach and the beautiful River Coquet. Mostyn and Oliver loved their holidays in Warkworth and we enjoyed many of the local attractions such as Alnwick, Amble, Alnmouth, Berwick, Craster, the Farn Islands, Morpeth… we could go on!

With Claire having family in Northumberland and the North East, we thought about buying a holiday cottage in the area and found St. Paul’s View. Paul went to view the property and instantly had a warm feeling about it… and that was that.

It is a beautifully comfortable, cosy and peaceful cottage in the heart of Alnwick sitting opposite St. Paul’s Church. A couple of minutes stroll and you are amongst all the local restaurants, pubs, delicatessens, butchers, bakers, and candlestick makers! Alnwick really does have everything that you could want and more and then you have beautiful Alnwick Castle to top it all.

We have made so many happy memories on our holidays in Northumberland and hope that you can make yours too whilst enjoying our cottage.”
