Northumberland Cottage, Close To Alnwick Castle – Film Location For Harry Potter’s Hogwarts & Downton Abbey!
Situated in the Tyne Valley, the three-bedroomed Peartree Cotttage is an attractive cottage with a spiral staircase and galleried walkway on the first floor. Well equipped and fully heated, the cottage has a log stove and a high standard of furnishings. It is in a quiet situation but within just a couple of miles from the village of Corbrdige which though small, has great shops and good eating.
This area of Northumberland probably has the most to offer visitors. Just 2.5miles away is the market town of Hexham with its historic Abbey, theatre, cinema, leisure centre and Waitrose. The area is superb for walking (the cottage has walking guides) and steeped in Roman history with not only the Roman Wall, but the sites of Corstopitum and Chesters within striking distance.
Also close by is Alnwick Castle, home to Harry Potter’s Hogwarts and Downton Abbey!
For families there is the massive openair museum of Beamish with its tramways, coal mine and old fashioned fully functioning shops. The coast has long empty beaches and the opportunity to take a boat to the Farne Island to see the seals and bird colonies or visit the historic Holy Island and Grace Darling’s lighthouse island.
It’s available in the October half term – and lots of dates in 2017 – from £950 per week.
