The Cookie Jar offers luxurious accommodation in the heart of Alnwick. Our boutique hotel in Northumberland was formerly the Convent of Mercy and has been beautifully renovated to offer stunning rooms and suites.
Located in a historic building, our hotel offers a truly unique and indulgent experience. All the rooms are brimming with individual character and style. 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.
