Book a room at The Cookie Jar and experience a little bit of unexpected cookie-ness.

Welcome to The Cookie Jar

Your cosy retreat in the heart of Alnwick, Northumberland. Formerly the Convent of Mercy, this historical building has been tastefully renovated into 11 luxurious rooms and suites, and offers all the home comforts you could need with an added little bit of unexpected cookie-ness.

Sleep like an angel

11 individual bedrooms, with unique character and named from the local area.

All rooms feature signature drench showers, stunning decor, Hypnos beds, deliciously scented toiletries from Penhaligon’s. And of course, home-made cookies.

Divine Dining

At the rear of The Cookie Jar is our bistro. We serve afternoon tea and divine dishes in the evening.

This stunning space is also available for private dining, perfect for a group of family or friends. Our garden is also open in the warmer months.

Glorious Alnwick

The Cookie Jar sits in Alnwick, the stunning, historical town in Northumberland. Both of these locations have an abundance of attractions for visitors to enjoy.

And after your day out, you can head back to us at The Cookie Jar, your cosy retreat.
