Win a special two-night stay in Northumberland

Close to the town’s cobbled centre and within striking distance of the county’s fabled coastline, The Cookie Jar brings a stylish boutique hotel sensibility to the wonderful architecture of the original building, the Convent of Mercy.

You’ll be welcomed with a bottle of champagne in The Chapel, your luxurious suite with period details such as stained glass windows and carved wooden beams. Enjoy comforts such as a large flat-screen TV, super-size bed and Penhaligon’s toiletries, as well as a jar of complimentary cookies.

The Cookie Jar’s restaurant, The Bistro, overlooks a heated terrace and garden. There, the winner and friend will enjoy a three-course dinner on one night, with dishes made using produce grown in the chef’s own veg patch. Look forward to the likes of tempura cod cheeks with spiced pea purée, wild mushroom gnocchi with basil oil and parmesan, or confit belly pork with black pudding mash in a cider cream sauce.

Creative cooking at The Cookie Jar


There’s plenty to do in the area, too. Visit Alnwick Castle – a filming location for the Harry Potter movies – and beautiful Alnwick Gardens, as well as enjoying bracing walks along the beach. Whatever you choose to do, you’re guaranteed a memorable time.
