“Excellent long weekend!!”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

My wife and I traveled with friends for a long sight seeing weekend in Northumberland. Our friends had found West Acre House on the internet - what a great choice! It is very conveniently located, only five minutes walk into Alnwick. Jeannette and Bruce are a genuinely friendly couple who made us welcome from the time we arrived until we left four days later. Nothing was too much trouble and when we arrived we were shown into the garden room for hot drinks, cakes and left to enjoy the surroundings at our leisure. The whole house was clean and the decor has been carefully chosen and reflects high quality and taste throughout. Their attention to detail is evident everywhere from the complimentary sherry in each room to the little cards on each breakfast table with guest first names to make conversation easier. Breakfast was excellent and they also were very helpful on advising local restaurants for dinner and giving honest feedback of guest reviews.
Our room was spotlessly clean with lovely views overlooking the gardens and fields beyond. The only negative we could find was the water temperature of the shower was cooler than we like but as we plan to return to Northumberland, we will not hesitate on going back to West Acre House!

Room Tip: We stayed in room two which over looked the rear garden and fields

From the warm welcome to the beautiful room everything about West Acre is perfect. Bruce and Jeanette go out of their way for their guests and love to share history of their delightful home and also local knowledge. The house is close to the castle and gardens of Alnwick but it also makes a good base for exploring the beautiful coast and surrounding countryside.

Yet another great stay at West Acre,as always a lovely welcome from Bruce and Jeannette. Spacious rooms, great parking and so good to be able to leave the car and walk into town, restaurants, Alnwick Castle etc. Afternoon tea on arrival always welcome, and excellent choice of breakfast each morning.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the garden and light and spacious

A really first class B&B, rooms were a good size and well appointed, beds comfortable, fresh towels daily and great breakfasts. Bruce & Jeannette were extremely hospitable and helpful and the house is situated in a quiet area and provided an ideal location to explore the surrounding area. Parking was easy and their garden was a joy.

After travelling it was very thoughtful to be greeted with a pot of tea in the garden room and a chance to relax. The room was beautifully decorated and with lots of nice touches including two very comfortable chairs, bath robes and a view over the garden. It was perfect. Start the day with the excellent breakfast and then, with the location being just on the edge of Alnwick, take a leisurely walk into the town, to Barter Books and Alnwick Gardens and Castle. No need to use the car. Jeanette and Bruce and West Acre House made our special birthday weekend very special.

Room Tip: Trust Jeanette and Bruce

Excellent is a word I wouldn't use very often in ratings but is the only one to use about all aspects of West Acre House and the hospitality of Bruce and Jeanette. Their attention to detail is superb. It is simply the most comfortable and relaxing place with a lovely garden to enjoy when the weather allows. Within walking distance of Alnwick town and only about 3 miles from the coast at Alnmouth with some nice pubs and eating places.

Room Tip: The Edwardian room was very relaxing, overlooking the garden, but I'm sure all rooms are lovely.
