About Us

Post-Office-House-ExteriorPost Office House is a AA Four Star Gold bed and breakfast, located in the centre of Belford. We relocated to Northumberland in January 2016 and have refurbished Post Office House into a quality accommodation establishment, offering guests comfort, luxury and relaxation in our elegant Victorian home.

Purpose-built in 1893, 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.

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, which takes in the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and is a walker’s paradise.
