West Acre House was a superb find for our first stay in Alnwick visiting Northumberland. We were welcomed by Bruce and Jeanette with homemade cake and tea. We stayed in the oriental room, which was finished to a very high standard. A very comfortable room indeed. Breakfast was fantastic and plenty of it!. Genuinely made to feel welcome by these great hosts. Will certainly return to this lovely B&B. Well done Bruce and Jeanette Wayne and Sharon Alford

We were so lucky to get a three night stay at West Acre House, in an area very close to my heart. We were greeted by Jeanette who is lovely and we were offered homemade cake (thank you Bruce!) with a tea or coffee, in the guest lounge a lovely introduction to the wonderful surroundings. We had a beautiful stay in room number 1 the Georgian room. A very comfortable and spacious room with twin double beds and they are so comfortable with beautiful crisp linen. An ensuite large bathroom to die for. A hospitality tray with a sherry in the room a great touch. Good selection of teas and coffee plus biscuits. Great carpark for the guests and beautiful gardens to walk round. The walk into Alnwick doesn't take long and very near to the local restaurants, bars and the beautiful Castle. The freshly cooked breakfasts are a delight again thank you Bruce. I cannot recommend West Acre House highly enough and to meet Jeanette and Bruce was a bonus. Great hosts, great people and so welcoming and friendly. Would I visit again oh yes and I hope too in the not to distant future. Thank you.

West Acre House has to be the best B&B we’ve found and we would confidently recommend it to anyone looking for comfort, a very warm welcome and perfect accommodation. The house and garden are beautiful, the location perfect and breakfast superb. Amazing value for money and if we return to Northumberland we will be back.

We last visited Northumberland and West Acres about six years ago and were not disappointed to find that the high standard we experienced then is just the same today. The house and accommodation is first rate. Immaculate, high quality, spotlessly clean accommodation with a delightful garden, ample parking and warm and attentive hosts. This place positively gleams and sparkles and the customer care could not be improved upon. It is full of pleasing little touches such as fresh flowers, small treats in the individually decorated rooms and plenty of well placed seating in the garden. The breakfasts are delicious and the house is ideally situated for visiting Alnwick and the surrounding area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning, before too long. We certainly won’t leave it six years this time around!
