At Greycroft you are guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome from Tom and Audrey. Greycroft is a delightful six-bedroom Victorian guest house in the Conservation Area of Alnwick, the heart of Northumberland. There are 1 Single, 1 Twin and 4 Double rooms, all en-suite.

Situated in Croft Place, a private road offering car parking adjacent to to the house, Greycroft enjoys a South-facing high walled garden that has been described as 'An Oasis in the centre of town'. The garden is there for guests to enjoy. We take pride in using the finest local ingredients to produce our award-winning breakfasts. We offer a varied and interesting breakfast menu and can cater for most food allergies and intolerances. We are certain that, if you come to stay with us, you will not leave disappointed.

Thank you for your enquiry. Unfortunately, we no longer have a family room (this has been converted into our Yellow Room) and, as such, we no longer accommodate children under the age of 14. We would suggest you try the 'visitalnwick' website for other B&Bs or, alternatively, try one of the hotels such as The Oaks, The Plough or The Hogshead. Sorry that we are not able to accommodate you; we hope that you find somewhere suitable.

Dear Kathy, Thank you for your enquiry. Unfortunately, the only room that we have available that weekend is our Single Room. Sorry that we are unable to accommodate you. We would suggest you try the Alnwick Tourist Information Centre or the Visit Alnwick website. Kind regards, Tom Bowes

"We booked the Yellow Room (5) for ourselves and a Smaller Room (1) for our daughter."
"Green and yellow rooms are exceptional. For those interested in art and jewellery the Bakehouse Gallery is well worth a visit."
"We have stayed in both the green and yellow rooms, both excellent."
"Yellow room is most spacious."
"Red room was lovely & overlooked the garden"
