Charming property in a peaceful and relaxing setting with a pretty conservatory looking out upon spacious gardens and woodland.

These two charming properties are set in the grounds of Eslington Park, a peaceful and tranquil setting, an ideal retreat for families or groups of friends. The Dower House (ref MRH) is a single-storey property offering comfortable, spacious and relaxing holiday accommodation with a pretty conservatory and garden. The East Wing (ref MTC) is a substantial and gracious self-contained Georgian property which is Grade II listed and enjoys its own large garden. Set midway between Alnwick and Rothbury these properties are surrounded by stunning countryside peppered with friendly Northumbrian villages. A short drive leads to the glorious Northumbrian Heritage Coast AONB with castles, fortresses and golden unspoilt beaches. Excellent walks and golf can be enjoyed in the surrounding countryside, whilst fishing on-site and pheasant shooting in season can be arranged with the owner. Rothbury, set along the river, offers lovely little shops and inns, whilst Alnwick is famous for its majestic castle used in Harry Potter. Many NT properties nearby include Cragside with its magnificent gardens and hall. Visit Craster or Seahouses before taking a boat trip over to the Farne Islands to see the seals and birds. Take in Holy Island for a historic step back in time. Shop 4 miles, pub 3 miles.

    Great property, just a shame no WiFi given the poor mobile signal.

    Lovely venue but the AGA was turned off so I could not cook on it (barely warm enough to warm plates) and cooking on the AGA rather than a normal hob is one of the highlights of my holiday here. This was a disappointment.

    Last minute search for accommodation in Alnwick area for family reunion led us to Lady Ravenswoods Dower Cottage. Deep in beautiful countryside only blip was an easily confused route round 3 sides of the main estate home arriving at the back-sat.nav. remained "true" The cottage had superb warm open plan kitchen with Agga and huge dining table which gave onto lounge, tv room and magnificent conservatory. No Wifi but probably best.3 bedrooms with ensuite. All furnished in best possible taste to highest standard. Overall best yet and would -along with our large family-love to return if cost allowed. Luxury
