The Old School, Edlingham, Alnwick, Northumberland, NE66 2BL

Nestled in the Edlingham Valley, an area so striking that it was used for the backdrop to the official film poster for The Hobbit, is The Old School. On the outside a traditional Northumbrian stone structure, built in approximately 1855 by the local vicar with interiors offering a high level of comfort and luxury following a recent complete renovation, while still maintaining a nod to its traditional beginnings. The emphasis is on luxury with every need catered for. The spacious master bedroom has a super king size bed with high thread Egyptian cotton and is supplemented by a second bedroom that can be set up as either a double or twin room. 

Ideally located within a few miles of Alnwick, with its castle and gardens, and close to everything Northumberland has to offer.

The stunning bathroom features freestanding stone bath and basin as well as a walk-in shower and complimentary Noble Isle toiletries.

The interiors feature lighting by David Hunt and Ralph Lauren as well as furnishings by Timothy Oulton and Mulberry. The Old School is designed to be comfortable all year round with garden seating and BBQ/Fire pit for the summer and a wood burning stove for cosy nights in during the winter months.

There is no shortage of entertainment including 55" smart TV with Netflix, Bang and Olufsen speaker and super-fast broadband. There is a games room with table football, playstation and numerous boardgames.

The Old School is the ideal base to return to after a busy day exploring Northumberland or for spending lazy days.
