We were welcomed by cake and tea then shown to our lovely room which was tastefully decorated, clean and well equipped. Literally just a minutes walk from the town centre and parking outside easy. Breakfast was delicious, plenty to choose from. I loved the eggy bread! Would definitely go back and recommend to others.

Just returned from a 3 night stay with David & Bev which was excellent, thanks to both of you. We were welcomed with tea and cake then taken to our room which was very comfortable, all very clean and very well equipped. Room had good facilities + extra things you don't normally get such as sherry and free use of drinks in a fridge downstairs! Both were extremely welcoming and helpful and breakfasts were as good as you could want carefully cooked to your needs - if they don't have what you want David gets sent out to get it!
-Great place, very kind and helpful - even a bottle of wine in our room for my birthday!!

Lovely house, lovely people, lovely breakfasts, Great room, comfortable bed with everything we needed. We couldn't have been better looked after. Wish we could have stayed longer. We also met some nice friendly people at breakfast. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: I am sure any room in this house would be as comfortable as the one we had.

We are always suspicious of establishments with exclusively 5-star ratings! However, our recent 4-night stay demonstrated that we were unnecessarily cynical. From the friendliness of David and Beverley, to the free parking disc, to the fresh fruit at breakfast, to the free sherry in the room, to the overall facilities, to the 'going the extra mile' by the owners - everything was indeed superb. Quality ear plugs are helpfully provided for any townies who might be unused to the melodic chiming of nearby church clocks. If you're spending a few days in Alnwick, there can surely be no better place to stay!

An absolutely wonderful stay! We stayed for one night when my parents were visiting from Canada. My husband and I had one room on the top floor while my parents had the other. Beds were extremely comfortable, the toiletries (face wipes, cotton wool pads, etc) provided were great and the fresh coffee and Bari Tea in the rooms (not to mention the sherry!) were most welcome and greatly appreciated. Not only were the restaurant recommendations for the evening fantastic (we ended up at The Art House), but David walked down to make the reservation for us! Breakfast in the morning was delicious, really set us up for the next day (and I was head over heels for the delicious fruit salad). I cannot recommend Bow House strongly enough to anyone staying in Alnwick.

Absolutely Superb, We stayed for 3 nights and were very impressed by the whole experience, I don't think Dave and Bev could have made us feel more welcome, the room was very impressive and spotlessly clean with lots of nice little touches for eg. pack of face wipes, ear plugs, cotton wool pads even a small decanter with sherry and glasses. The breakfast was cooked to perfection and we loved the fresh fruit salad with yoghurt.We would highly recommend The Bow House and will definately be staying there again should we return to Alnwick.

We've just spent 2 nights at Bow House and really enjoyed our stay. David & Beverley were excellent hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Welcome drink on arrival and offered at various other times throughout our stay. Super clean accommodation. Delicious breakfasts. Parking right out front and permits given for other areas of Northumberland to avoid parking charges. We had the room with the balcony and enjoyed a few drinks there, but the B&B garden was lovely and offered the same outdoor space. DVDs to borrow at night. Sherry in your room. Great hairdryer. They have really tried to think of everything. Well done and thank you for a lovely stay.
