Experience the magic

Our building is centuries old and located within the Alnwick town walls, a stone’s throw from Alnwick Castle itself.

Throughout Hallow & Crux the decor is Victorian with a ‘ministerial’ and yet contemporary feel, with a tip of the hat to the wizarding world. Candlelight sets the tone as the hanging tapestries that adorn the walls echo the history of the centuries old building and the town and castle below.

Many of our individually designed rooms boast views over the historic town of Alnwick and of the majestic castle that towers over us. 

Each of our unique luxury king size bedrooms offer en-suite facilities including walk in rainfall showers, & two have roll top baths. info@hallow-and-crux.co.uk
