Baileygate House

Baileygate House in Alnwick, Northumberland, is a restored 18th century house dating back to 1769. Sitting in a prime location, the house is just minutes from the western tower entrance to Alnwick Castle. Baileygate House is situated in the quiet street of Bailiffgate, in the central medieval and Georgian core of Alnwick.

This natural stone holiday house is part of a terrace giving immediate access to both town and country. Walk out to the right and you will reach Alnwick Castle and the town’s marketplace within five minutes. Or continue down the Peth to the splendid pastures alongside the river Aln. Walk to the left and you will find Alnwick old Abbey and the Duke’s superb Capability Brown Hulne Park, also within minutes. 

There’s plenty to see and do in Alnwick and the surrounding area. Have a read of our blog for our best recommendations for how to spend your time during your stay in Northumberland.

Access to Baileygate House

Baileygate House is accessed through the passage door which then leads on-wards to the rear garden and yard known historically as “Nurses Yard”. The house itself is thought to have been variously occupied over the past 240 years by the town’s millers and tradesmen. It was even part of the Convent which was housed in the main over the road where the Cookie Jar Hotel now stands.
