Extra special B&B just 10 to 15 minutes walk outside Alnwick. It will be rare that you find a B&B of this quality. Jeanette and Bruce take honest care and attention. A most peacefull and quiet location.

I booked a two night birthday treat for my wife as a result of reading the reviews here and I wasn't dissappointed. Everything you read here is true! Fabulous friendly hosts who made our stay even better. We will definitely return.

Beautiful house in a stunning location with views of open countryside. A warm welcome by Bruce & Jeannette set the scene for a lovely 4 night stay, nothing was too much trouble from crystal glasses for our wine to in depth information on local attractions. Our room was of a very high standard with everything you could need for your stay. Breakfast was superb.

We were met on arrival by Bruce and Jeannette with a pot of tea and home-made cake and shortbread in the conservatory. By the time we were shown up to our room our bags had mysteriously found their way there first. Lovely large room, beautiful decor, well-appointed. The breakfasts were delicious, my grilled sausage tasted wonderful and my husband was thrilled with the locally smoked kippers. We'd definitely stay here again.

This place is so wonderful that I am tempted to write nothing and keep it all to myself but, in fairness, sharing my views about West Acre House is the right thing to do! My husband and I have stayed with Bruce and Jeanette four times in the past two years whilst researching and realising our retirement plans and every time has been as good as the others. We have slept in two of the four bedrooms on offer and both are exquisite, immaculate, comfortable and offer those extra touches that epitomise Bruce and Jeanette's thoughtful hospitality. I have no doubt that the other two rooms that we haven't stayed in are just the same. Breakfast is the stuff of fantasies. Afternoon and evening tea trays in the garden room are always on offer as is advice and information about local facilities. They have booked restaurant tables on our behalf and even rustled up information about local house prices. They have returned to my home address forgotten items left in a chest of drawers before I had realised they were missing. They had the good grace not to look horrified when we announced we might be neighbours! I recommend West Acre House and the hosts, Bruce and Jeanette, unreservedly. Jane N
