Overview

Stay in peaceful surroundings in a comfortable atmosphere at the Old Rectory, Howick Country House B&B.

In the lovely village of Howick, close to Craster, we are ideally placed for exploring Howick Hall Gardens & Arboretum, the Alnwick Garden and Alnwick Castle, and Dunstanburgh Castle.  We are only yards from the Northumberland Heritage Coast, on the Northumberland Coast Path and St Oswald's Way.

We offer spacious, comfortable rooms, a warm and friendly welcome and good food using local produce, including the world famous Craster kippers. We are close to many good pubs and restaurants where you can experience unique Northumbrian produce, including Lindisfarne Oysters, Northumbrian Hill Lamb and tasty local cheeses.

Our newly refurbished guest lounge is a cozy place to relax or socialise after a hard day exploring and there are many picturesque short works to enjoy in the surrounding fields and woods and along the coast.  Enjoy watching wildlife from our garden or your room window.  You can regularly see  pheasants, barn owls, red squirrels, hares and many garden birds including a Greater Spotted Woodpecker.

Perfection at its best.


nigewend2016, Darlington, United Kingdom
Just had a what should have been a 3 night break but had to cut short to a 2 night stay due to circumstances beyond our control. The very friendly welcome from Dave, the very comfortable bedroom, the comfortable lounge with open fire, the tasty breakfasts (Craster kippers to die for), the recommendation of great nearby eating places and the kind understanding when we had to cut short our visit. You wanted for nothing. We would not fail to return to The Old Rectory when next in the the area and fully recommend this peaceful B & B.

Outstanding B&B - Of the highest standard.


loulout t, London, United Kingdom
Nestled in the beautiful costal village of Howick (Northumbria) is the Old Rectory B&B. From start to finish our stay here was simply outstanding making it the perfect base whilst exploring the area. Jude and Dave are incredible hosts offering a very warm welcome. Our room was clean, warm and cosy nestled within the most idyllic setting -we relaxed instantly. Dave cooks a delicious breakfast (we loved the Northumbrian) not to mention his lime and polenta cookies... Have a feeling this B&B is going to get rather booked up once word spreads...

Long Weekend


NeilGomersall, Wakefield, United Kingdom
Very charming, idyllic location within a peaceful village within easy walking distance of many a places to visit. David offered a warm welcome on arrival and gave us tips of where to visit and eat. We stayed within Jill over our stay and the room was spacious and well kept. It looks over the front of the house and has lovely views of the surrounding area. David and Jude offer an Home from home feel and go out of their way to make your stay special. During our stay I took on the Bamburgh 10K for Macmillans and was offered an early breakfast and late check out to accommodate this. Lovely couple who deserve the best of luck in their venture! Will definitely stop here again on our next trip within the area. Thanks again David & Jude! Neil & Monika (Wakefield)

Warm and welcoming home from home


Geri711, Heathfield, United Kingdom
Wonderful place with excellent hosts. Comfortable, clean and characterful with delicious breakfasts. A perfect base for exploring the beauties of Northumberland. Coastal path a few minutes walk away. Our room 'Holly' was superb, west facing with a wonderful window seat to relax on, overlooking the garden. We hope to return!

Warm welcome and superb location for beaches, castles and more!


Gilly S, Andover, United Kingdom
A warm welcome from hosts Dave and Jude and their chickens. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts, spacious bedrooms and plenty of hot water in the bathroom. From the base at The Old Rectory we were able to drive to Holy Island in under 30 minutes, to Bamburgh and Seahouses (for the Billy Shiels boat trips) in 20 minutes. Boulmer and Craster were 10 minutes drive and Alnwick 20 minutes. We could walk to the wonderful gardens at Howick House.
