Barbican View is a beautifully refurbished, luxury apartment occupying the entire ground floor of a Grade 2 listed townhouse in the conservation area of Alnwick, with an unbeatable view of the grand barbican entrance to the castle.

Barbican View has been awarded 4 Stars Gold by Visit England for excellence in self catering.

The space
Barbican View is a beautifully refurbished, luxury, self-catering holiday apartment in the Alnwick conservation area. It takes its name from the absolutely stunning view of the grand barbican entrance to Alnwick Castle seen from its windows. Barbican View is the ultimate place to stay in Alnwick, especially for those who wish to experience this magical historic castle at close proximity.

Occupying the full ground floor of a Grade II listed townhouse, with a pretty enclosed courtyard garden, Barbican View provides a superb base for exploring the town, as well as all the other attractions of Northumberland, including Bamburgh Castle and beach, Holy Island (Lindisfarne), Alnmouth, Newton-by-the-Sea, Dunstanburgh Castle, Cragside, and Hadrian’s Wall, which are all just a short drive away. The apartment is close to the many walks and meadows (including Hulne Park) surrounding the castle, but is also less than a five-minute walk from the centre of town, where there are many local shops, gift shops, cafes and tearooms, pubs and restaurants. There is also a market in the town square every week.

Barbican View has been awarded 4 Stars Gold by Visit England for excellence in self catering. Sleeping two (plus a baby in a travel cot), the apartment is also dog friendly and welcomes up to two small, well-behaved dogs. There is free on-street parking via a residents' permit which we provide for guests.

We offer full-week stays, 3-night weekend breaks starting on Friday, and 4-night midweek breaks starting on Monday. In low season (November-March excluding school holidays) we will be happy to offer 2-night weekend or 3-night midweek breaks. For more details, seasonal and short break prices, up-to-date availability and special offers search for 'leaholmecottages'.

Barbican View can be booked in conjunction with Castle Retreat which is a separate apartment on the top floor of the same building, also sleeping two people (plus travel cot if requested).

Guest access
You have exclusive use of the ground floor apartment and its private walled garden to the rear. We provide a free residents' parking permit so that you can park your car in central Alnwick within a few metres of the front door.
