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 you can also relax in our small sauna. 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.

Dogs and children are welcome, as long as they promise not to chase the chickens or our cats, Owen, Smokey and Patsy.
