“Everything you could wish for in a bed and breakfast”
Reviewed 18 October 2011

We stayed for a week at this excellent bed and breakfast. I can't think of anything that you need that wasn't provided and I am sure if I could have thought of anything it would have been provided for us!

Very helpful and pleasant owners, a warm atmosphere and lovely surroundings.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Laburnum and it was lovely and comfortable.

We had a one night stop over here on the way to Scotland. The property is about 1 Mile and a 15 min walk from Alnwick center. The room was lovely and nicely decorated with a good amount of space. The breakfast was great with cereal, full english and toast a really good start to the day. The hosts were very friendly and helpful, the bed was a little firm for me but that is just personal preference.
Check in is after 4.30pm and breakfast between 8-9am.

Checked into the Sycamore room at Ravensmede today after several nights at a much more expensive place in Edinburgh that felt like a hostel.
So far we are very impressed. The room is lovely and very nicely designed (no chintz!). We have windows at both ends of the room with trees at one side and a garden with very perky bunnies at the other!
The owners have thought of everything from a selection of DVDs to dressing gowns, slippers, fresh flowers and little chocolates by the pillows. The breakfast menu is very good and local produce is used.
A really impressive little B&B which we will definitely recommend to friends and family

We only stayed for one night only at this B&B. It was not signposted, but the directions on our printed confirmation was ok, even if the house itself is a little hidden.

We were four persons travelling together and all of us got a really good impression, the rooms had a really modern look, the beds were comfortable and there was a TV with a dvd-player in the room. There were also films to borrow in the chest-of-drawers. There were fresh flowers in a vase when we arrived, which made us feel very welcome, a nice touch. They also had free Wi-fi, but we never had the time to test it.

The rooms were like rooms in a hotel, but you felt that you were in somebody's home when you ate breakfast in the livingroom. Breakfast was regular English breakfast, sometimes they serve their own homemade bread.

The hosts were helpful and nice, but yet kept their distance so you could have your privacy as a guest.

We all liked our stay in Ravensmede Cottage and wouldn't hesitate to book it again if we ever were to return to Alnwick.

I stayed at Ravensmede Cottage for a weekend and everything about it was excellent. The room was comfortable and well equipped, including a lovely shower room. There was plenty of choice at breakfast and everything was freshly cooked.

The cottage is quietly situated on the edge of Alnwick; the town centre is within walking distance if you are energetic but others may prefer to take the car! There are plenty of eating places to choose from in Alnwick and suggestions are given in the folder in the bedroom. It is easy to get to the wonderful Northumberland coast, or across country to Rothbury, or up the A1 to Berwick and the border area.

The owners were friendly and helpful but not intrusive. Ravensmede is on my list of places to go back to!
