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.

Perfect choice for our special family event


neilmarg, Wolverhampton, United Kingdom
We stayed at the Greycroft for two nights to attend a family wedding at Alnwick Gardens. What a perfect choice, first class. Anyone coming to visit Alnwick this is the place to stay.Everywhere in Alnwick is within walking distance from Greycroft. Parking is available at the side of the house, our room the green room was lovely with views over the well kept garden. The breakfast had a wide choice and very enjoyable. Audrey was so nice to us all the perfect host.

Wow


John A,
This great find is in the centre of Alnwick, and there are not enough words to praise this B&B. Parking is literally outside the door, and we were met by Audrey Bowes who could not be more pleasant and helpful if she tried. We were taken into a guest lounge where we were offered sherry, port or Meade while being supplied with information on a wealth of local area attractions, after which we were shown to our room ( number 5 The Yellow Room). Really it's a suite with settee and armchairs around a flat screen TV, the furnishings are bright and modern, with every possible comfort, including sweets on the well stocked hospitality tray. The en-suite shower room is spacious with great fluffy white towels and all toiletries. Breakfast is to your choice and cooked to your order, and yes, they do serve Robsons famous kippers. It's served in a very nice conservatory overlooking the garden. There are only 5/6 rooms so booking early seems essential; after suffering the George Hotel at Chollerford,this was somewhere to really give you value for money at a lower rate!!

Beautiful place to stay. Everything you want to visit in Alnwick within easy walking distance. Audrey is a fantastic host - both rooms we had have everything in them and more. Breakfast choice is extensive and cooked perfectly. Can only echo all the previous excellent comments. Would definitely return.

Northumbrian gem


irgy, Lancashire, United Kingdom
This is a wonderful place to stay. All rooms and public areas are decorated and furnished to a high standard and are spotlessly clean. Nothing is too much trouble for the fantastic hosts, Audrey and Tom. A superb choice of breakfast, delicious and well presented. No negatives - highly recommended.
