Roxbro house – a luxury BnB

There aren’t many bed and breakfast establishments with a direct view out onto a real English castle. Roxbro House in the charming Northumberland town of Warkworth can boast just that!

Roxbro House – which room will you choose?

There are several rooms to choose from, each individually designed and furnished in rich colours. I stayed in the Ethel Noble room, named after the lady who lived here for many years. It has a huge carved oak French bed and a spacious bathroom. A cast iron slipper bath takes centre stage..

Roxbro House – keeping cosy

There’s a shower too and classic black and white tiling. Fluffy robes, slippers and toiletries come as standard. Sheets are crisp Egyptian cotton and the quilts are cosy goose down. Medieval Warkworth Castle is literally right outside your bedroom window.

Luxury sleeping
The Ethel Noble Room is a larger than average superior room situated in the newly acquired part of the building and is named after the grand old lady who lived in this property for many years.
This room has been designed with pure indulgent luxury in mind. A larger than average main room which directly overlooks the Warkworth Castle will house a rather decadent 6 foot wide carved oak half tester bed.
The bed will of course will be dressed with our Egyptian Cotton linen and topped with a goose down duvet and pillows.The room will also contain beautiful antique furniture which will include a breakfasting table and chairs- should you wish to enjoy our complimentary room service!
The large en-suite bathroom will boast a large deep cast iron double ended slipper bath- separate shower cubicle with power shower, a large vanity basin and a low level Victorian W. C. This luxurious bathroom will also directly overlook Warkworth Castle.
This room comes with a private mini bar and fridge, large flat screen LCD television,DVD player and ipod docking station. Warm fluffy towels, slippers, bathrobes and luxurious toiletries are of course standard to the bathroom.

Clare Gibson and her family have been at Roxbro House for fourteen years now. The majority of their guests are repeat visitors, and you can see why.

Breakfast at Roxbro House

The rooms are luxurious and there’s a delicious breakfast menu, served in the garden room. The full English option is available. Try options of smoked haddock or eggs Benedict. The pancakes with maple syrup and crispy bacon were delicious.

Where to eat

You can sample afternoon tea at Roxbro House too. There is no evening restaurant here but you can order from a selection of hot food and have a ‘room picnic’ delivered.

Roxbro House – Warkworth village

Warkworth has lovely walks along the river Coquet. The village has quite a few coffee shops and little art galleries and gift shops to browse around.

There’s no shortage of pubs either. The Mason Arms gets a special mention for its food. The Sun pub is notable for its life size knight in armour which welcomes you at the front door.

Warkworth Castle – English Heritage

Warkworth Castle, has been in the custody of English Heritage since 1984. Set a top a protective mound the castle started life as a medieval fortification.

The castle has a complicated past. It was part of the the Duke of Northumberland’s dynasty in the late 19th Century. A Grade 1 listed building its mound famously bursts into life with a girdle of daffodils in the spring.

Roxbro house – a coastal favourite

Warkworth beach is one of my favourites. Its dramatic windswept sand dunes stretch for miles along the bay. As you reach the end you come upon the river estuary inlet. From here you can see across to the village of Alnmouth on the other side of the water.

The golf course is on top of the hill where the sand dunes finish. Rolling farmland sprinkled with wildflowers in the spring and summer fringe the way back to the car park. The old Celtic cross stands as a testament to the Christian history of this part of the world.

Roxbro House is a lovely place to stay. A charming establishment,  some of its stone work may well have been poached from the castle itself!
