Formerly the Convent of Mercy, this historic townhouse has been transformed into one of the finest boutique hotels in Northumberland. The Cookie Jar in Alnwick stands on the famous cobbled street of Bailiffgate, right at the heart of the medieval market town. With Alnwick Castle quite literally on the doorstep, this is a fabulous location for exploring so many incredible attractions of the North East.
The moment you enter the building, you are wowed by the high end quality of the hotel. The owners and designers really do have their fingers on the pulse and no stone has been left unturned here. From the cool blue colour scheme that runs throughout each room complemented by local artwork, to the vintage suitcases and beautiful chairs, The Cookie Jar has a distinctive style that can’t be found elsewhere. Classic and contemporary unite in an extraordinary fashion, mixing sophistication with effortless chic design.
The Bistro looks out onto the gardens and terrace and provides a gorgeous backdrop of wood panelled walls and designer furniture, creating the perfect relaxed space for dining on uncomplicated dishes that show off fresh seasonal flavours. The Snug is a cosy room where you can enjoy evening drinks, afternoon tea or a morning coffee.
Inspired by the local area, the bedrooms at The Cookie Jar in Alnwick are simply beautiful and reflect the luxurious feel of the hotel. Sumptuous beds are draped in tactile throws, and cosy seating and stylish lamps create the mood for relaxation. Some rooms have freestanding baths and some feature castle views, while all rooms indulge you with Penhaligon’s products and coffee from Pumphreys of Northumberland.
