The Cookie jar was launched in September 2017. Formally the Convent of Mercy - the Cookie Jar stands proudly on the cobbled streets of Bailiffgate, adjacent to Alnwick Castle - the family seat to the Duke of Northumberland.

Recently voted “Best place to stay in the North” by the Sunday Times, the Cookie Jar has 11 beautifully appointed bedrooms, including our suite, The Chapel - with it’s copper bath and stained glass windows, it really is very special. All of our bedrooms boast drench showers, great beds, luxury linens, a plentiful supply of Penhaligon’s toiletries and of course your welcome jar of freshly baked cookies.

Our Bailiffgate Bistro which overlooks our walled garden is open to both residents and non residents for dinner from Thursday to Sunday during the winter months and 7 nights a week from April. We also offer Morning Coffee, Lunch and wonderful Afternoon Teas on Thursday, Friday and Saturday throughout the year.

Proud recipient of the Trip Advisor Traveller’s choice Advisor award for the last 3 consecutive years 2020/21/22 which places us in the top 10% of hotels Worldwide for excellence in hospitality as determined by ratings from our guests.
