West Acre House
Ranked #1 of 69 Alnwick B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 29, 2012

This is the second time we've stayed at West Acre House - the first was for 4 nights in 2010 - and we stayed 6 nights this time. We thought it was excellent the first time - and it was just as good this time! The bedroom (we had the Edwardian) was large, comfortable and with every modern convenience, and the ensuite bathroom was large and modern. Everything spick and span.

The breakfast choice is enticing, from Craster kippers to the Full English, in a pleasant breakfast room, and there's a comfy conservatory for wet days and a beautiful garden for sunny ones. Good car parking space is a bonus. The B&B consists of just 4 bedrooms in a large Edwardian house in its own grounds, just 20 minutes walk or a 2-minute drive from Alnwick town centre. The best thing of all is the care and attention paid to guests by the owners, Bruce & Jeannette, who couldn't be more helpful and considerate if they tried. Wonderful hosts.
We've stayed at hotels which were nowhere near as luxurious as this. Full marks!

Room Tip: The Edwardian room (no. 2) overlooks the garden...

Dear Will F and M,
thanks again for being excellent guests and for the glowing review on Tripadvisor. (How much do we owe you! ;-) Just joking TA.) We enjoyed your company and really appreciated your input with the guitar during the strawberry tea event it all helped make the day all the more wonderful for everyone attending. Keep up the music and we hope we see you both again in the not too distant future.
Best wishes
Bruce & Jeannette

Our stay was excellent from start to end. We stayed 3 nights and felt very welcomed by Bruce and Jeanette. We stayed in the Oriental Room and it was beautiful, large and comfortable. They have other rooms to sit and enjoy. You can use their books and dvd's if needed. Breakfast was lovely and plentiful. A beautiful house and grounds. Definitely visit again.

Having made a last minute decision to travel to Northumberland for a short break, we were so pleased that we found this absolute gem of a B&B on the Visit Northumberland website. The hosts, Bruce and Jeannette, are the friendliest people you could ever meet. The whole experience (we stayed 3 nights) was exceptional, from the little touches of providing tea and cakes on arrival and name cards at breakfast so that you could greet fellow guests, to the absolutely superb bedrooms. Bruce and Jeannette were happy to recommend places to eat and visit, nothing was too much trouble. We will return again.

We agree with all the good comments about this place. Four day break here. Lovely big bedroom, very nice public rooms, altogether very civilised; off-road parking. Suburban setting a bit out of the centre of Alnwick, which is walkable with a little effort.

We were so glad that our old and diminishing memories of West Acre House did not let us down. After visiting a couple of years ago we vowed one day to return. The welcome from Bruce and Jeanette was just as we remembered,as well as all of the extra touches of class that makes this place so very good. The gardens were in excellent bloom and offered an oasis of calm after frantic golf days. The rooms were spacious and complete with everything required including the customary carafe of sherry! Bruce was very helpful in charging the battery for our golf trolley without a second thought. It is no wonder that he is to be awarded MBE for services to tourism because if his efforts in his own establishment are reflected in his role , i believe as chairmen of the local tourist board, then local tourism will continue to thrive and go on to even greater things in this beautiful area fo England. WELL DONE to you both

Room Tip: Ask for room overlooking the garden for a lovely view of the magnificent rose garden! !

We had a super 2 day visit here. Bruce and Jeanette could not have made us more welcome at their beautiful home. Our room was so comfortable and spotless.All the little touches were extremely thoughtful. Even a decanter of sherry if you wanted a little light refreshment before going for dinner was a lovely touch. The bathroom was spacious, clean and the toiletries were excellent.The whole experience was superb and we would highly recommend a visit to this super place.

We have stayed twice at West Acres House and each time we have enjoyed excellent service from the moment we parked the car in the ample parking space to the moment we left. On each visit we were warmly welcomed and served with tea and cake.
The rooms have always been spotless and comfortable, with plenty of space. Nice touches such as Sherry and a bowl of fruit awaited in our room.
Jeannette was happy to arrange a doctors appointment when one of us was 'off colour'.
We always like to start the day with a good breakfast and Bruce and Jeannette did not disappoint in this respect! They were always happy to chat and provide help in planning our trips exploring the local area and in suggesting places to eat.
Bruce and Jeannette are fine hosts, there when required but unobtrusive otherwise. The gardens are beautiful and a good place to relax in peace and quiet.
