The popular historic market town of Alnwick which lies approximately 10 miles south, has a wider range of amenities including specialist shops, supermarkets, restaurants, pubs and hotels. The Alnwick District is famous for its unspoilt beauty and is one of the most picturesque areas of countryside in England - with long sandy beaches, quiet friendly villages, the Simonside and Cheviot hills, well preserved medieval Castles and gardens. There are numerous stately homes in the area including the fantastic Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland and often referred to as “The Windsor of the North".
