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.

Award-winning, 'Produced in Northumberland' accredited, locally-sourced breakfasts are 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.

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.

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 in every way!

Greycroft is an outstanding B&B which I would recommend without any reservation whatsoever. It is a character B&B in a lovely, quiet part of Alnwick. From the friendly welcome by the owner, to the breakfast room with stone floor and picture window overlooking a beautiful walled garden, to the amazing breakfasts and beautifully appointed bedrooms, this B&B will not disappoint. I would rate it as 5* plus(!) and definitely intend to stay for longer next time.

A destination in itself

The most ideal place to stay would be somewhere not so busy that it makes it impossible to get a good night's rest, but not so remote that it makes it difficult to get to places. It takes less than 10 mins to walk to Alnwick Castle, to the town center, and to other popular attractions of this quaint town. Bonus points for being a block away from the coziest pub I've ever been in. Most people wouldn't even consider this but as a foreigner who doesn't know what to expect, this is a huge deal. I'd give them 5/5 for safety. Why? They're across the street from the town's police station. The whole place is carefully thought through. It's all in the other reviews but I must add how comfortable the bed is. Of course, the award-winning breakfast was superb. They take the time to source their ingredients properly and find the best possible local stuff. The kipper was excellent (my first), and full English Breakfast worthy of the title. It has probably ruined my future English Breakfasts in the future though. To sum it up, Tom and Audrey are wonderful. You can find excellent customer service in many places but genuine warmth and eagerness to help is hard to find. Greycroft is a destination in itself.

Excellent Guesthouse

Leslie L, Lake District, United Kingdom
My wife and I stayed at this delightful guesthouse for two nights as a base for exploring the north Northumberland Coast. On arrival we were made most welcome by Tom who supplied us with all the local information we required.We stayed in the yellow room which is more of a suite than a bedroom being very spacious and most comfortable. As for the breakfasts...........Wow! It was a shame we never got to meet Audrey as she was away for a few days staying, coincidently, only 6 miles away from where we live! Overall, we cannot fault our stay here in any way, and would have no hesitation in recommending it to any of our family and friends.

Five Star Plus

Just the perfect bed and breakfast. The moment we entered the door, it felt right. Audrey is a wonderful, warm, charming hostess, making you feel at home with a cuppa and a biscuit. Everything was as it should be in the room, comfy beds, warm dry towels, generous supply of coffee and tea with fresh milk available.. Tom cooks a tasty breakfast with lots of choice. We were sad to leave, it felt like we had made new friends. If you want a great base in Northumberland, Greycroft is the place for you.

Great Place to stay.

Greycroft is great place to stay in Alnwick. Audrey and Tom are excellent hosts and nothing is too much bother for them . There are delightful little extra touches everywhere from jelly beans, sherry, port and Lindisfarne Mead in the lounge to special makeup remover cloths in the bathroom. Audrey also has a wonderful knack of remembering individual needs of her guests and dealing with them appropriately. Tom’s breakfast menu with its emphasis on local ingredients is scrumptious and I was there long enough to try most things all of which were delicious. The rooms are well furnished and comfortable. My single room had a double bed and a very large bathroom with a large walk in shower. There is excellent WiFi connection in all rooms. Greycroft has a small beautiful walled garden with an amusing pair of grazing sheep. The house is well situated with easy access to all the town’s attractions and various restaurants and does have limited parking outside for residents. I would certainly recommend staying here.
