The Cookie Jar
In brief: A chic, boutique hotel housed in a former convent.
Insider guide: Just on the doorstep to Alnwick Castle, on the cobbled streets of Bailiffgate, the 11 bedrooms at The Cookie Jar are set within a historic building and brimming with character, yet not lacking in modern luxuries. Ranging from intimate and cosy rooms to Mother Superior Suites, if the drench shower and king-size beds don't have you longing to stay, then the homemade cookies in your cookie jar will.
Our highlight: The complimentary fluffy robes you'll change into after a heavenly soak.
