The Cookie Jar



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 on Fridays and Saturdays and Morning Coffee, Lunch and Afternoon Teas from Tuesday to Saturday.
