About Us

Post-Office-House-ExteriorPost Office House is a AA Four Star Gold bed and breakfast, close to Bamburgh and the stunning Northumberland Coast (AONB). Post Office House was fully refurbished into a high quality accommodation establishment in 2016 and offer guests’ comfort, luxury and relaxation in our elegant Victorian home.

Purpose-built in 1893 and Grade II Listed, Post Office House (as the name suggests) was Belford’s former post office and retains the distinctive red pillar box, still in use today. It also housed the telephone exchange and sorting facilities, together with a private residence for the Postmaster and family until the last Postmaster retired in 2014. Belford still retains a post office service, but is now located in the Co-op on West Street.

We are situated between Alnwick and Berwick-upon-Tweed and just minutes off the A1. The stunning coastline and sandy beaches of Bamburgh and Budle Bay are within a ten minute drive.  We are also on the direct route of St Cuthbert’s Way and Northumberland Coastal Path which take in the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and is a walker’s paradise.
