Alnwick

Dominated by the magnificent Warkworth Castle standing out against the skyline is the ancient village of Warkworth that is anything but a museum. Built on a rocky spur encircled by a loop of the River Coquet, the main street of Warkworth has the castle at one end, while church of St Lawrence with its towering 100-foot spire is at the other.

Act as king or queen for the day in the extensive remains of Warkworth Castle, the ancient seat of the Percy family. The castle features in Shakespeare’s Henry IV too

Be rowed across the River Coquet by Warkworth Hermitage’s boatman. Accessible by boat only, this remarkable 14th century chapel is hewn from the rock face. Once the home of monks who prayed for the souls of the Dukes of Northumberland, today you might catch sight of seals and otters swimming up to this curious cave-like chapel.

Wander around the village’s artisan shops, restaurants and welcoming inns and enjoy a cone of homemade ice cream from nearby Morwick Dairy, just outside the village. Take a riverside stroll, or put out to the water in a rowing boat or canoe, available to hire in summer months.

A 15-minute walk takes you from the village to Warkworth Golf Course and a spectacular sandy beach overlooking the RSPB reserve of Coquet Island.

Fancy having a castle as your neighbour?  In Warkworth you can, so why not spend a few nights here in a Warkworth hotel or bed and breakfast, or rent a Warkworth holiday cottage.
