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.

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.
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.

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


mingo53, Liverpool, United Kingdom
Audrey & Tom have thought of absolutely everything at their wonderful b & b in Alnwick. It's very quiet with plenty of parking and just a short walk into town, where you will find lots of good places to eat and the entrance to Alnwick Castle & Gardens. There is so much to see in the area - Cragside, Bamburgh, Holy Island and beautiful stretches of coastline. The breakfasts at Greycroft were fantastic - thank you Tom! Audrey provided sound advice on eating out and places to visit and made sure everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. It's a tribute to all their hard work and dedication that they have so many satisfied customers!

Best b&b in Northumberland!


Jaslek, London
Audrey & Tom have thought of every detail to make this lovely 100 year old house as comfortable as your home- and know how to make you smile too! Everything from bedroom ( amazing attention to detail by Audrey)to breakfasts ( beautifully cooked by Tom) was perfection. Convenient for walking to everything in Alnwick and free parking too. Look no further- you will not be disappointed

Wedding stopover


nickbbourne, Bishops Stortford, United Kingdom
We stayed here with two other couples to celebrate a friends wedding at the nearby Treehouse venue within the gardens of Alnwick Castle. We were in the red room and our friends in the yellow and blue rooms, all were well appointed, spotlessly clean and very comfortable for our two nights here. The yellow room had a large lounge area and worth the extra £20 quoted over the red room we stayed in. Greycroft is run by mother and son team Audrey and Tom with Audrey on front of house duties and Tom cooking a marvellous breakfast each morning. Both made our stay very special, a lovely warm welcome when we arrived with tea and biscuits served as we relaxed after a long drive. Nothing was too much trouble and the Eggs Benedict a definite highlight. Town is a three minute down hill walk from the Greycroft with a selection of restaurants, pubs and variety of shops. The castle and gardens are a further few minutes walk, all easily accessible. Parking was directly outside of the building in a safe area opposite the police station. Thoroughly recommended.

Audrey made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. We stayed in the yellow room for 2 nights and we couldn't fault it at all. It was lovely & spacious & the attention to detail was spot on, we didn't want for anything. The breakfasts were delicious - thank you Tom. We will definitely be back.
