Produced in Northumberland


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.

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.

Superb B&B

WillStaffordshire, Staffordshire
A very pleasant B&B close to the centre of the town with parking outside. The welcome is very warm and the rooms are beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. Nothing is too much trouble. Breakfasts are very good, possibly the addition of porridge to the extensive menu would be nice.

They know how to look after their guests

I love this place so much, they have everything thought out. They are lovely hosts as well. The breakfasts are the best around in a lovely setting. The rooms are very clean and so comfy. I especially wanted to thank Audrey for making our stay so good as I had problems with my hips and letting me use the extra comfy mattress topper. Please book with these guys if you want the best stay. I will be looking forward to my next stay alot.

We booked at Greycroft after reading the reviews and to be honest everything exceeded our expectations. There are only positives with Greycroft and every part of our 2 night stay was perfect. Audrey - Your welcome was just wonderful, so accommodating and it made us feel at home instantly. Tom & Sarah - Thank you for the smiling faces at breakfast and the most perfectly cooked eggs. If anyone is thinking of somewhere to stay in Alnwick then Greycroft has to be the only choice if you are looking for exceptional quality and somewhere that genuinely cares about you! I could write thousands of words about how lovely Greycroft is but if you are reading my review just make the booking as I know you will be as happy as we were. Thanks Audrey, Tom & Sarah

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.
