Alnwick Area Guide

Local Area Guide from Your Move Alnwick, NorthumberlandLocal Area Guide from Your Move Alnwick, Northumberland

Often referred to as the Secret Kingdom, the beauty of the area attracts many who come to explore it and stay forever. Buyers from across the country, and sometimes from across the world, are all attracted to this area which accommodates a wide variety of tastes ranging from coastal, countryside, borderlands or hill country. Whichever you prefer, we can help find the home of your choice in the setting of your choice.


Once voted as "Best Place to Live", Alnwick is an area that couples its location between some of England's finest open-hill country to the west, and most impressive coastline to the east.    

The area benefits from a wide range of shopping facilities within the market towns of Berwick, Alnwick and Morpeth. Smaller towns and villages have a selection of artisan shops, independent traders, boutiques, coffee houses and restaurants.

Located in the heart of the market town of Alnwick, our central position allows us to offer a range of properties from coast to the hills and up to the Scottish Border. A fine three bedroom barn conversion for example can sell for upwards of £250,000, with a traditional three bed semi selling between £180,000 - £200,000. Highly sought after areas such as Bamburgh will see substantially increased prices with prices exceeding £500,000 for a three bedroom apartment and a two bedroom cottage. Among the most sought after addresses are Bamburgh village, Hillside in Rothbury, Riverside Road. 

Rental pricing varies depending upon location and accessibility. For example a three bedroom detached house in Allerburn Lea will rent for around £650pcm, with larger properties in Alnwick starting from £750 - £800pcm. 

Coastal cottages can start from £450pcm in Seahouses and Beadnell, with one and two bedroom flats from £350pcm. Bespoke and large properties command pricing at the top of the market up to £3000pcm.

Come for a visit, stay for a lifetime - a strapline used for publicising the area many years ago is one which still remains true to this day. There are so many things to do and so many inspiring places, why would you not want to live here?
