Proudly owned and created by Debbie Cook, experienced hotelier and wife of Robert, the award winning UK hotelier, and former Chief Executive of Malmaison and Hotel du Vin. It was Debbie’s inspired vision to convert this beautiful historic building into a home of modern hospitality.
The Cookie Jar aims to bring a level of hospitality to Northumberland, with an approach to sleeping, eating and service that is full of individual character, attention to detail and bags of style. We offer simple food, locally sourced, created and prepared by renowned chef, John Blackmore. We also serve specialist coffee from Pumphreys and are well equipped for all the outdoor pursuits you love.
The interior design for the entire project was led by Matt Hulme, of Dynargh Design, a renowned interior designer. Matt was the designer behind many Hotel du Vins notably Newcastle, Cambridge and Edinburgh.
The Cookie Jar is available both for exclusive use as well as on a room by room basis, and all rooms on all floors are accessible by both stairs and elevator.
All in all, The Cookie Jar is the ultimate treat of retreats and a very alternative accommodation and entertainment venue for the area of Northumberland – come see for yourself. We look forward to your stay.
We are so very proud to have been named as Sunday Times Travel ‘Best Place to Stay in the North’. What an honour! Thank you to all the team and you, our guests for helping us reach this amazing feat.
