'Best place to stay in Alnwick'


Ravenslaw House is perfectly situated within the town of Alnwick, as well as for attractions further afield. We are very fortunate to have world-wide tourist attraction- the Alnwick castle and gardens- on our door step, which is a big favourite for many of our guests. There are numerous restaurants in town, including the Alnwick Treehouse- as well as Europe’s largest second-hand bookstore, Barter Books- set in Alnwick’s former Victorian railway. Close by is the aln-valley railway, where one can experience steam engine rides. Further afield there are vast amounts of coasts, castles and beaches to explore, including Alnmouth beach only a short drive away, as well as Bamburgh beach and castle about 20 miles north of Alnwick. Visiting Northumberland is an amazing experience, with so much to do, so plan your visit in advance to make the most of it. We provide many leaflets in our main entrance area, where you can find inspiration for your days out.
