We have just returned from a 3 night stay at West Acre House. This must be one of the best B and Bs out there from the personal welcome upon arrival to the immaculate and tasteful accommodation all supported by highly professional owners.As I wrote in the Visitors Book " why can't all B and Bs be like this ?" A rare find that is highly recommendable and excellent value. Thankyou.
David and Georgina.

We have just returned home after a 4 night stay at West Acre House. We can only echo all the other excellent reviews. Jeanette and Bruce are wonderful hosts. Breakfast was delicious and cooked to perfection. Our room was extremely clean and comfortable. Nothing is too much trouble and we received good advice about places to eat and things to do. The weather was great too and we are already planning a return trip to Northumberland. Staying at West Acre House is top of our list.

We were greeted by Janette and immediately felt at home, a lovely lady, everything a hostess should be, warm, friendly and welcoming. We were invited to relax in the garden room and were served tea and cake. She took the trouble to spend time talking to us even though she had left a meeting in another part of the house. Our twin room was near perfect, the beds were comfortable, the pillows just right.
We met Bruce at breakfast and he had just the same friendly attitude, we felt like old friends visiting, our two night stay was everything we had been looking for and if they could have matched the weather with their warmth our short break would have been perfect. We hope to find the time to return someday and would not hesitate to recommend this lovely B & B

We visited Northumberland ten years ago, staying in the perfect B & B in Rothbury. We said we'd go back, but the proprietors moved on and we thought we couldn't possibly find anywhere as good in the area again. So imagine our delight to 'google' Bruce and Jeanette and find them hiding in Alnwick! West Acre House is even better than their last property (if that's possible!) and very beautiful. The superlatives have all been written in previous reports, so I won't repeat them. Mind you, this place isn't for everyone. If you really don't like the little extras such as tea and cakes on arrival, fresh fruit and a decanter of sherry in your large, tastefully decorated room, a fantastic choice of books, magazines and dvd's, and being made to feel like old friends, not just 'guests', then maybe you should look elsewhere. West Acre House is truly home from home; we're already looking forward to our next visit!

Room Tip: Oriental Room has lovely views over the garden, but we're certain they're all great!

A warm welcome from Bruce and Janette. A great couple of nights spent at West Acre House. Nothing too much trouble. Good breakfast selection. Room extremely well co-ordinated and of a great size. Would recommend to anyone and would stay again.

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.
