Overview

This attractive and spacious 6 bedroom Victorian property is situated in the market town of Alnwick in Northumberland.

This delightful character guesthouse, tastefully furnished throughout, sits in the heart of the Alnwick Conservation area and is only a two minute walk from the town centre and local amenities, including a wide range of good restaurants. Both Alnwick Castle, the second largest inhabited castle in England and known as the Windsor of the North, and Alnwick Garden are readily reached on foot within a further short stroll.

Greycroft is located in a private road, allowing guest parking adjacent to the house. It has an attractive walled garden that has been described as 'an oasis in the centre of town'. Our rooms include a large single, four doubles and a twin. In addition, we have a comfortable guest lounge with a variety of books and games and a bright contemporary garden room where breakfast is served from 8.00-9.00am (8.00-9.30am at weekends)

All bedrooms have en suite shower rooms. They are equipped with colour TV with Freeview and DVD, radio/alarm, hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities. No two rooms are the same size and this is reflected in the differential tariffs.
Single Room: This delightfully furnished, spacious single room has the benefit of a double bed, accessible from both sides. There are two steps down to the large en suite shower room. Very stylish.
Blue Room: A tastefully furnished double room with double bed and two easy chairs.
Red Room: A large double room looking out onto the garden. It has a kingsize bed, a matching bedroom suite in American oak and two leather tub chairs.
Green Room: A very large double room with bay window overlooking the garden. The room has a kingsize bed and furnishings in American oak, with a comfortable two seater sofa.
Twin Room: The twin room is accessed from the corridor down three steps. It is furnished with white-washed cane furniture.
Yellow Room: This room is also accessed from the corridor down three steps. It is a spacious room with a king size bed and matching oak furniture, large coffee table, 3 seater sofa and large TV.
Wi-fi available.

Breakfast is served in the light and airy Garden Room which has doors leading onto the patio. The garden itself is south facing with ample seating where guests can enjoy the early morning or late afternoon sun as they plan their activities.

Alnwick is historically known as the capital of Northumberland as it lies centrally in the county. It is an ideal base for exploring the beautiful Northumberland coast, including the Farne Islands and Lindisfarne, and countryside from the Borders down through Kielder to Hadrians Wall. Northumberland is the least populated county in the country but is blessed with the most castles, including Alnwick, Bamburgh, Warkworth, Dunstanburgh and Lindisfarne (Holy Island). It was to Holy Island that St Aidan introduced Christianity when he founded the first monastery in 653 AD.

Enjoy the tranquility and the history of this beautiful area.

Impossible to fault


Sam W,
A warm welcome from Audrey marked the beginning of a short but brilliant stay at the Greycroft. Quality rooms, quality breakfast, quality hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and Audrey put us at ease, as if we were old friends. The only problem is that you eventually have to leave.

Excellent Central Base


Cathy B,
We spent 3 nights at Greycroft and the service from booking to leaving was fantastic.We were getting a late train to Alnmouth and Audrey agreed to wait up for us. She greeted us with a warm welcome and efficiently went through everything we needed to know. We had the single room (very generous for a single) and the Red Room. Both were immaculately clean and beautifully furnished. The array of added extras made this a home from home - a wide variety of toiletries and a big range of hot drinks and biscuits. On the landing we were shown the visitors' fridge containing complimentary bottled water, ice and space to chill your own wine. Wine glasses were also available. Breakfast was exceptional. A vast range of cereals, fruit, yogurt and juices followed by a choice of hot food ordered the previous evening and freshly cooked. The quality of breakfast is superb - all beautifully cooked by Tom. It was served in a lovely room overlooking the walled garden full of different birds. As we were in Alnwick to visit friends, we didn't need the visitor information but there was clearly lots of it available. I would have no hesitation in staying at Greycroft again. Fantastic service and beautiful surroundings.

"You must try this wonderful B & B"


Barbara H, Naples, Italy
We stayed at Greycroft as we had a wedding on Saturday. What a wonderful way to start the day, the best full English breakfast ever and we have stayed at many 4* hotels. The welcome was genuine, the room was lovely and very comfortable. Tea and coffee in the room with biscuits and sweets. Complimentary sherry, port in the lounge. The position of Greycroft is great and gives easy access to many historic sites if you are touring. Can't recommend this wonderful B & B highly enough ! Thank you Audrey and Tom
