Previous reviews of West Acre House give an impression of somewhere "rather special" to the extent that we wondered if it could be true. I am delighted to report that West Acre is indeed somewhere "rather special". We stayed at the B&B for 2 nights in the recently renovated Room 1 (the only twin bedroom at West Acre) and were...

My wife and I spent a couple of nights at West Acre House having researched long and hard!! Good choice!! It's in an excellent location for visiting Alnwick, the Castle & Gardens (within walking distance) and for scenic drives throughout this beautiful area. The house is comfortable and spotlessly clean...despite the light coloured carpets! Lovely views from our room. Bruce...

My wife and I had a very enjoyable stay here on 12 April. After a long drive the coffee and cakes we were greeted with by Jeannette were just what we needed.
