“Lovely place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

This is a great place to stay - in a quiet residential area but just a 10-15 minute stroll into town. We stayed in the Laburnum room, which was a really pretty room (it's been updated since the photos on here) & looks lovely. The bed was very comfortable too. Spotlessly clean & the ensuite is actually a full sized bathroom. The owners were very friendly & welcoming. I would stay here again & would recommend to others. If I could make one suggestion it would be to have a bigger TV in the room as although there is a tv & dvd it is very small. Everything else excellent though.

The B+B is as advertised and it is literally a 10 minute stroll to the centre of Alnwick.

The double room was fresh, clean and tidy and provided not only the basics you would expect, but others such as DVD player and films, ironing board and iron, robes and slippers, bottles of water.

The bathroom was very spacious with shower over bath and nice little touches of liquid soap and liquid moisturiser rather than small blocks of soap.

Claire the owner was very friendly and welcoming.

Plenty of choice and portion size for Breakfast from cereals and yoghurt to full English.

Also provided free wifi which worked first time.

We spent two very comfortable nights here. Host and facilities were fabulous - a real gem and ideal for the surrounding attractions. It was quiet but a close walk to eateries and the town centre. Also recommend the breakfasts.

We really enjoyed staying at Ravensmede Cottage. Our room was very clean, comfy and pretty, with a good en suite bathroom (and, for once, wifi that actually works!). The breakfasts set us up really well for the day and the owner was extremely friendly and helpful. All in all, we'd strongly reccommend it.

We have just spent a few days at Ravensmede and found it to be an ideal base for seeing the sights in and around Alnwick. The room was clean and more importantly the bed was comfy. Breakfast was good with plenty of choices and our hosts were lovely. (As was the hedgehog dog Jess) Would definitely recommend this as a nice place to stay, within 10 mins walking distance of Alnwick. We would stay there again.

We had a lovely stay at Ravensmede Cottage. The owner was extremely friendly and made us and our friends feel very welcome. Really easy to find and comfortable bedrooms with en suite. All round great little B&B. We'd recommend Ravensmede Cottage to couples that are thinking of staying in Alnwick.

after a quick search on internet at 4.15 on a crisp evening we found this gem phoned them and Claire the owner was fantastic we had the room and were settled by 6.30.
The room was spacious and the bedding and towels were all lovely and fresh, and the full English breakfast the next morning was more than enough to start the day.
