It is not number one in Alnwick by accident. A lovely house and garden with great rooms but what makes it very special are the owners. Bruce and Jeanette were born to run a B&B. So very glad that we found it and them.

From the moment that we arrived to the hugs when we left Jeanette and Bruce did everything to make our stay memorable. The oriental room where we stayed was just fantastic and had been decorated to the highest possible standard but it was the little things that really made the difference from the soft soft towels that were changed every...

Dear Judith and Trevor thank you for your lovely review regarding your stay in the Georgian Room, this is our only twin room but instead of opting for the standard 3ft wide beds we decided to replace them last year when we redecorated with 4ft wide beds for that extra bit of comfort.

We stayed 3 nights at West Acre in the beautiful Oriental room. The property and gardens are outstanding. Bruce & Jeanette are very welcoming and have a wealth of knowledge about Alnwick and the surrounding area. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return with friends in the near future.
