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 was Belford’s former post and sorting office and retains the distinctive red pillar box, still in use today. It also housed the telephone exchange and National Girobank facilities, together with a private residence for the Postmaster and family until the last Postmaster retired in 2014. Belford retains its post office service, but is now located within the Co-op mini mart on West Street.  The A1 (Great North Road) used to run right past Post Office House up until 1983 when the current bypass was built.

We are located 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 both St Cuthbert’s Way and Northumberland Coastal Path and is a walker and cyclist paradise.
