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.

Made to feel welcome


philmal2018, Preston, United Kingdom
We spent 2 nights here, spending some time with friends and enjoying the local area. Audrey was very welcoming and helpful as too was her son. The house is beautiful and has some nice little touches to make you feel at home. We stayed in the blue Room which was very comfortable. Would definitely go back, just need to find an excuse.

A great 4 night break


Avril B, Liverpool, United Kingdom
Just home after a lovely stay at this FAB b & b. The perfect weather made this short break even better. Couldn't fault the accommodation & breakfast , Audrey is delightful as host & her son Tom is a great breakfast chef. Such a beautiful part of the world, with so many places to visit within easy reach. A good selection of nearby restaurants & pubs for evening meals within walking distance of Greycroft. Highly recommend this wonderful accommodation.

A real gem


_keith_endersby, Newbury, United Kingdom
We spent a delightful 4 nights at Greycroft which was an ideal base from which to explore Northumbria. Highlights of our trip were Cragside and the Farne Islands (dolphins, puffins etc, etc!). Audrey and Tom made us feel very welcome, the accommodation (yellow room) was great in all respects, and we enjoyed the breakfasts! Do try the Craster kippers. We went on a recommendation and will pass it on to other friends.

SUPERB!!


Beryl G, York
Just enjoyed a two night break at this superb Guest House. We were made most welcome by Audrey who was so friendly and informative, nothing was too much trouble. We loved the Green Room, had everything and more, and spotlessly clean. Tom provided the most delicious breakfast using top notch ingredients from local butcher. Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing stay. We will return!
