Built in 1880, Oronsay House B&B in Alnwick exhibits many period features and is set in a conservation area just 175 yards from the Bondgate (or Hotspur) Tower and the town centre. We are a similar distance from one of the entrances to Alnwick Castle and Gardens and just 200 yards from Barter Books.
After purchasing the building in December 2009 we undertook a major refurbishment project during the first half of 2010 and opened for business at the end of May 2010.
We were given a 4 Star rating by Visit Britain in our first year of trading and and in 2012 we received the Gold Award and Breakfast Award accolades. We have also been awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2012, 2013 and 2014 to acknowledge the consistently high ratings given by our guests.
In the evenings, our town centre location means that you have a choice of the many local restaurants, pubs and bars all within a short walk.The Alnwick Playhouse is just 100 yards away walking towards the town and features a rich variety of film, music, theatre and dance. Look out for the Northumbrian evenings and a chance to see traditional "Rapper Sword Dance" whose origins lie in the mining villages of Northumberland and Durham.
Alnwick is ideally situated for exploring Northumberland with Hadrian's Wall, the Northumberland National Park, the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and a host of castles and other attractions all within easy reach.
The sketch of Oronsay House on the left of this page was drawn by our eldest daughter, Elspeth, who teaches art at Dollar Academy. There are a number of her other works on display in the house, some of which are available for sale.
