I booked the acorns and the owner rung me a week before the stay and cancelled the two night booking due to illness. This was six weeks ago and I still don't have my deposit back. I have rung twice and sent emails and I keep being told I will get it that week. The owner tells me a number... More

We stayed here for one night on 27 April 2012. It's a modern house in a quiet road about 10 minutes walk from the town centre. The room was large, nicely decorated and very clean. Sue, the owner, was friendly and welcoming and the cooked breakfast was fine. Good value for money.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Acorns. Excellent location close to the town centre, castle, shops etc. Quiet and restful place - ideal for a break from the rat race. Travelled with our little dog, and was pleasantly surprised to see the place was pet friendly in word and spirit. Stayed in The Annexe. Its like a little self-contained flat!... More

Really enjoyed our stay. Sue was very welcoming and made sure we were comfortable. We were welcomed with tea and a home baked fruit cake (again one of the best I have had!). It was great to have a separate entrance to ourselves so we did not inconvenience the host. The location was perfect too- just five minutes from the... More

Fantastic little B&B, perfect for a short trip to Alnwick. Breakfast was great and the overall service was excellent - the owners not only dropped us off and picked us up from the restaurant we went to in the evening (as the galeforce winds meant it would've been an unpleasant walk), they also gave us a lift back to the...

We stayed in the ground floor annex whihc has its own private side entrance and were extremely pleased with our experience. The place is spotless and we had a private tv/living room with sofa in addition to the bedroom and en-suite - very cosy and great to relax in your own space after a day out walking and exploring.

Stayed here with our two daughters in the Annex whilst attending a friends wedding at the castle and had a fabulous time. Spotlessly clean, everything you could need for your comfort, and Sue went above and beyond to make our stay perfect - even driving us to the wedding in our finery so we didn't need to walk the 15...
