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.

Wonderful Stay, Perfect Hosts

Anne K, Kirkby Malham, United Kingdom
We spent three wonderful days at this exceptional guest house which has a lovely walled garden & parking just outside the entrance in October. It is ideally located, close to the centre of Alnwick with its many attractions and good selection of eateries, yet in very quiet and peaceful area. The facilities are excellent and there is a wonderful relaxed atmosphere which is calm and welcoming. Audrey & Tom are warm and friendly, attentive but never intrusive, in fact the perfect hosts in every way. From the useful local information & discount vouchers for some of the local attractions supplied upon our arrival to Tom’s excellent breakfasts which set you up for the day, nothing was too much trouble. Both have an extensive knowledge of the surrounding area and are always happy to suggest interesting places to visit. It is the small details that make it so special & we are already planning a return visit in the spring. Thanks again to you both for a memorable stay.


Helen H,
Wow what a fantastic place this is. From the moment we booked (January 2017)until the minute we left (November 17) everything was wonderful. Audrey, Tom and his wife were more than hospitable. We were attending a wedding at the treehouse with all ages ranging from 19 to 83. Our whole party enjoyed the rooms, beds, bathrooms and breakfast the next morning. We would definitely recommend staying here. Thank you.

Another lovely B & B

Colin S, Somerset, United Kingdom
We were on a tour of Northumbria and only (sadly) stayed one night. Rang the day before to arrange to pick up discount vouchers for the Castle early on the day of arrival. No problems, we were met and completed all the arrival details and set off to explore Alnwick Castle and gardens for the day. When we got back later that afternoon, our lovely bedroom was ready as promised. Very good recommendations for pubs and restaurant for that evening (rang and booked for us as well) The breakfast the next morning was lovely. We left wishing we had booked to stay another night. We certainly will next time we visit Alnwick.

An autumnal weekend away

Claire S, London
A lovely welcome from Greycroft when we arrived late on a Friday - warm room, comfy beds, a great breakfast and lots of information on charming Alnwick - we loved our stay at Greycroft and look forward to returning soon!

Gem of a find!

We stumbled upon Greycroft after heading out on a last minute road trip for our wedding anniversary. Not typically the types to just turn up and book we were a little nervous about finding somewhere we would be both clean and comfortable and I'm pleased to say, Greycroft did not disappoint! From the moment we arrived the service was second to none! We were warmly greeted at the car by our host, Tom, who was very friendly and welcoming. He did the necessary paperwork and then showed us around the house before giving us the low down on the local area along with those a little further afield too. Our room (The Green Room) was very spacious, clean and comfortable. It had all of the amenities that we might need, tea, coffee, hairdryer, shampoo, conditioner to name but a few. There was also additional items in the communal areas should they have been required, water, wine, port, sewing kit etc. Breakfast was included in our rate and Tom did a great job being chef and waiter for the day. We opted for the Northumberland breakfast and it didn't disappoint! Whilst we didn't opt for the vegetarian sausages we were very impressed that Tom takes the time out to make these himself with herbs grown in his own garden. The B&B is centrally located and there are 4 parking spaces outside on a private road which are reserved for guests. All of the local attractions were within walking distance as are the local pubs and restaurants. We would recommend visits to Alnwick Castle and Gardens and The Treehouse restaurant for dinner. You will need to make a reservation for The Treehouse in advance as it can get quite busy but it's definitely an experience not to be missed! Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Audrey but it is clear that her and Tom care very much about the finer details and the comfort of their guests is their number one priority. We had a very enjoyable stay at Greycroft and will definitely be back in the near future to continue exploring the wonderful Northumbrian Countryside! Thank you once again Tom!
