5.0

Located in the picturesque village of Rock, this modern Northumbrian stone house is perfect for family get-togethers. With a peaceful rural location and within easy driving distance of Alnwick market town, Embleton Bay and the famous Harry Potter castle, it's the ideal place to unwind and explore. This home is set amongst others on a private conservational estate, so you may bump into neighbouring guests during your stay, though you’ll have a private drive and parking here. The house is fairly minimal but the wood-burning stove is perfect for family nights in, the snug room offers a retreat for teens of the group, and the large garden provides a wendy house and swings for the kids.
