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.

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.

Easter Break

Jeanette S,
An absolute gem of a b&b - we were impressed before we got there with the information and links in the e-mail sent to us. When we arrived we had such a warm welcome from Audrey we instantly felt at home. Our room was excellent, everything we needed and a very comfortable bed which ensured a good night's sleep. The décor throughout is first class with lots of things to catch the eye, and maps etc. to borrow and take out with us if required. There were plenty of brochures downstairs and on the pew on the landing as well as a sewing kit, glasses, bottle opener, speciality teas; also a fridge with water and milk and ice cubes in the freezer above. Everything was thought of down to the labels to put on anything you wanted to put in the fridge!! To eat and drink - well, there was a small fruit bowl, bowl of mini chocolate eggs, bowl of jelly beans and sherry, port or mead to sip whilst relaxing the in lounge. If you want to sit outside there is a very pretty garden which is quite a sun trap. Add to that the wonderful breakfast, with so much to chose from, and you were set up for the day. Greycroft is also conveniently placed for Barter Books, Alnwick Gardens and Castle and the high street. I think you may have guessed from the above that we were well impressed with our stay:-)

A real home from home

This was my second visit to Greycroft and my husband's first. It takes a lot to persuade him to stay in a B & B rather than a hotel but such is the quality of accomodation, furnishings, food and, very importantly, hospitality, that he's looking forward to going back again. Greycroft's location is perfect : it's in a quiet spot off the main roads and yet only 15 minutes easy walk to the castle and the gardens. Greycroft is a beautiful house that has been made into a warm and welcoming home by Audrey and her family. We had the Green Room, which is a good sized room with a wonderfully comfortable sofa to stretch out on after a day out and a bed that makes sleep very easy. The ready supply of fruit and refrigerated bottled water are just a couple of examples of the extra touches that make Greycroft a very special place to stay. It feels as if Audrey has catered for all the things that she would want to have if she were staying anywhere.There are many 4* hotels that get it less right than she does. Breakfasts are excellent. As a non meat eater I am continuously disappointed by the lack of any imaginative hot dish choice when staying in hotels; at Greycroft I can opt for Tom's fantastic Glamorgan sausages with spinach and tomatoes - a very welcome break from the more usual Quorn sausage ! At the centre of everything is Audrey who should be used as a role model for all aspiring B & B owners and hotel managers. She exudes the warmest welcome you could ask for and ensures that you have all the information you need to get the most from your visit to this lovely area. If you want a place to stay that feels like home then look no further than Greycroft. Book well in advance if you want to be certain of getting a room.

Perfect B&B

EmiRu, Yorkshire
This was our third stay at Greycroft and (as always) it didn't disappoint! Audrey, Tom and Sarah are the perfect hosts and greeted us like old friends - extremely welcoming, very knowledgeable about the local area and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are spotless, with lots of thoughtful touches. The range of cooked options for breakfast is amongst the most extensive I've ever seen at a B&B and it just couldn't be faulted - very tasty! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Greycroft and look forward to visiting again before too long!

We had a wonderful , large comfortable room in this lovely B&B in a quiet location in Alnwick , walking distance to town centre , Alnwick castle and gardens . Breakfast was very good served in conservatory with views of the garden . Owner very helpful with good recommendations for dinner and drinks.

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.
