Fabulous Find
Stayed with a group of 12 friends and had a wonderful long weekend. The house was immaculate with excellent decor. The facilities did not lack in any way. Lucky with the weather, we managed to explore our surroundings, managing to walk to the ruins at Dunstanburgh. We also walked to a lovely little pub (The Ship) in the other direction. Also managed to see Bamburgh Castle and visited Lindisfarne. Would highly recommend this as a venue for large family and/or friends. Would also recommend a visit to the unique Barter Books in Alnwick, you cannot fail to be impressed.

The house was wonderful and having on suite bathrooms for most rooms was great. The position is stunning and the decor and facilities are excellent. The beds were comfortable and everywhere was very clean. The owner is very helpful and easy to contact if you have any questions. We were a party of ten, the house had enough space to give everyone room to enjoy themselves.

The location is fantastic. Brilliant views from the property and a number of fabulous walks.
Mrs Tennant

The Lookout is a wonderful place to stay. It was perfect for our group of 9 where we wanted a beautiful property in a stunning location. The house was beautifully appointed, very comfortable and had everything we needed and wanted. This is the best property we have rented over a 10 year period and we hope to return!
