Alnwick Lodge enjoys a picturesque setting close to the A1 trunk road. The Lodge and surrounding grounds has been home to Peter Smith since 1976, joined by Evelyn in 1994. During this period West Cawledge Park has been tastefully transformed from a dilapidated Northumbrian Farmstead to provide Alnwick Lodge.

Fifteen well equipped guest bedrooms all with en-suite facilities, individually decorated and furnished to the highest standard ranging from singles, doubles, twins, family, to a magestic Four Poster bedroom.

The antiques in the bedrooms are all for sale. Locally sourced produce including fresh fruits from the orchard feature in the splendid breakfast, packed lunches and evening meals are available if ordered in advance. Children and dogs are welcome.

The Lodge offers superb accommodation for private guests, corporate events, film crews and wedding parties, a unique location to host house parties tailored to your own requirements. Four public rooms set around the floral courtyard.

Lonely Planet recommended.

Antique Galleries, log fires, glamping and camping with ample parking.

Nice place but strange service

Paul T, Dersingham
I chose this place to have somewhere a bit 'different', and overall regretted my decision, although the place has many positives and I certainly wouldn't not recommend it to others. The problems started on the Sunday night when I arrived (I was booked in for 5 nights). First of all, I got lost (my fault entirely, I didn't follow the directions properly); however I rang the hotel for some help; went to voicemail. OK, not good (now 21:30 on Sunday evening), but I found it in the end, but then couldn't find where reception/entrance was (anyone who has been there will understand that none of this is clear or obvious). I rang again, as I was literally walking round in circles; again, no answer. I walked into what seemed to be a lounge area, and found a young man sitting in the dark. He had my key for me, but his English was very limited, so I was unable to discuss with him why nobody had answered the phone etc. He pointed to the door where breakfast was served in the morning, saying it was from 8-10 (I had already arranged for breakfast at 07:30, but he didn't understand). There were a few minor problems with the room (kettle not working properly, bedside lamp didn't work) but otherwise OK, and to be fair these problems were sorted out as soon as I raised them the next morning. It was also very hot in the room, as nobody had thought to air the room by opening the skylight. However the other problem was that, in the morning, the shower head leaks badly to the side, so the first morning I got drenched unexpectedly and water was everywhere, and had to be mopped up using the mat, which became sodden. I eventually got to use the shower, but it was very poor and continued to leak to the side; although I raised this with the owner, unlike the other items it was never fixed and never alluded to again. Has nobody ever told them before? Or does everyone raise it and it never gets fixed, as happened to me? First morning was OK - breakfast very good there - but on the Tuesday I went down at 07:30 and the door was shut and no sign of anyone. It wasn't until 07:45 - when I was about to leave and get breakfast elsewhere - that I saw movement, and when I eventually managed to attract the owner's attention I asked him what was going on he said that I should have used the other door (bearing in mind that I am not clairvoyant, none of this is signposted, and the person who I spoke to on Sunday night never explained this to me at all, but pointed out the door I had tried to enter). What I found most frustrating about all this, and why I have given a relatively low overall mark, is that surely by Monday morning the owner had listened to his voicemail messages, and therefore heard two phone calls on the Sunday evening, which clearly indicated that I was getting hacked off at the lack of response? Despite this, at no point did he ask what had happened, had everything got sorted all right, was everything OK now etc? And yet weeks before I had booked the room, and specifically told them that I would be arriving lateish on the Sunday night! I noticed that on the Wednesday or Thursday two signs had been put up showing the entrance to the courtyard and then the entrance to 'reception', so maybe action had been taken as a result of my raising these issues. The stay itself was fine, and the breakfasts were pretty good, but that first night/morning very much coloured my view of the place, and I certainly wouldn't stay there again; however for others it might just be perfect.

A most unusual B&B

Michelle W, East Riding of Yorkshire, United Kingdom
I needed a 1 night stop in Alnwick, and was glad I chose this over the run of the mill establishments. Check beforehand if you have mobility problems, as my room was up a small spiral staircase. Very comfortable bed, and excellent breakfast.

Great location

Susan E, Durham
I would agree with the adjective ‘quirky’ used by many other reviewers. I would add original and interesting as well as comfortable, super location, friendly staff and great breakfast. Beautiful gardens.

Quaint Lodge

BrianJackwi, Greater Johannesburg, South Africa
We only stayed 1 night at the lodge, as it was an overnight stop for us on the way to Edinburgh. I also wanted to visit Bamburgh Castle, as it is the location of the fictional Beddanburgh Castle in the "Last Kingdom" series of books. The Lodge is a converted farm, and with it being in the countryside, you get an idea of what its like to live on a typical English farm. We booked the Roundhouse Room. On the pictures and website it looked really quaint. However, if you have large suitcases, its not a good idea, as the stairs leading up to the room are narrow and round, so its difficult to carry the luggage up and down the stairs. The room itself is on the small side. It was adequate, but narrow. Being on the 1st floor, it felt as if we had a loft room. We had to contend with the slope of the roof, which made things interesting. The double bed was pushed against one wall, so the person sleeping on that side had to get on and off the bed at the foot of the bed. It would be far better sold as a single room. The mattress was not the most comfortable, so we did not have our best sleep on the trip, and we feel it needs replaving. The tea and coffee station was at the foot of the bed under the one eave of the roof. The bathroom consisted of a bath, with shower over bath, basin and toilet. Having a shower was a rather interesting affair, as the shower head was attached to one of the rafters. As a result, the shower was at chest level. Hardly ideal for me, and would be very difficult for someone taller. Unfortunately, if you want to relax in the bath and wash your hair, its not possible because you cannot lift the shower head off its bracket Breakfast was served in the old barn, and your table was in the cattle stall. Very quirky. Tables were large, seating 8 or 10 people. Very good for sociable people, but not so good if you want a bit of privacy. Breakfast was cooked to order, and you could have cereals, fruit salad and toast. Not a lot of choice, but plenty. If you are looking for quaint and antiquey, this is the place for you. If you like modern chain hotels, then this is not for you. A word must be said for Peter, the owner. He is a delightfully friendly host who genuinely cares for his guests. He gave us some great advice for our journey up to Edinburgh, and how to avoid the very busy A1. He also helped us with suggestions on where to eat and was super friendly and helpful to an American lady traveller. He recommended that we visit Barter Books, a brilliant 2nd hand book store, which is fantastic for bibliophiles. Bonus: Parking is free which is very unusual for hotels in the UK>

Lovely people, excellent service, super breakfast and excellent room with all you need. Very quirky, it is like a builders reclamation yard, so interesting, you are not sure what you see next!! The baby chicks were a delight and our whole stay was perfect. If you want Travelodge or Premier Inn, don't bother as this is English eccentricity at its finest!!
