“Comfortable, well equipped cottage in Alnick”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

2 Percy Cottages is well positioned for exploring Alnwick with the castle and garden within easy walking distance. The cottage is well equipped with books, information leaflets, games DVDs and videos. We were comfortable and warm throughout our stay though we would have appreciated some cleaning materials to enable us to keep the kitchen and bathrooms clean.

Thank you very much for your review. I appreciate your comments about cleaning materials to use during your stay. We provide a dish washing welcome pack with washing up liquid, sponges, kitchen roll, cloth, bin bag etc. However, as I’m sure you will appreciate we have quite a few families with young children and dogs which means that should any accident, or adverse reaction occur with other, more toxic products we would not only feel awful but also could be legally liable. So for safety reasons we do not supply additional cleaning products and suggest that guests wishing to clean during their stay supply (and take with them upon leaving) products they know are familiar, safe and do not cause adverse reactions for their own family.

“Comfortable, Cosy and Convenient.”
Reviewed 28 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We can only agree with all the previous positive comments. We had a very calm, comfortable and successful holiday here in the week between other big family events.
Versatile and smart accommodation with plenty space - even on a wet day.
It is easy to deal with the recycling issue by taking all packaging etc. to the recycling bins in the public car park behind the main street.
Many Thanks for sharing your lovely cottage.

“A lovely place to stay in Alnwick”
Reviewed 25 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just had a lovely week , with this Georgian house in Alnwick as our base from which to explore the many castles, beaches and moors of Northumbria.

It was very clean and well equipped and in walking distance to the town centre and Alnwick Castle.

A wonderful spot and highly recommended.

“well appointed home, recommended”

Lovely double fronted cottage, pleasantly decorated and clean. Yvonne (the owner) has thought of everything a guest could require or need. Couldn't fault the kitchen seemed to have everything a real home from home.

My only criticism would be lack of recycling on the premises.

The house is situated round the corner from Alnwick castle and a short walk from the town centre although the road outside is fairly busy during the day it is quiet of an evening/night.

I would have no hesitation recommending this gem of a property to family and friends.

Thank you Yvonne.

Hi Elizabeth
Thank you for your review. I certainly take on board your comment about recycling, however, we've found that some guests do not take care what they put in for recycling and the bin is rejected. We've tried signs to let people know what is acceptable to no avail. So we've had to take the very difficult decision to not make the recycling bin available.
