A bit of History…

We are located in Belford, near Bamburgh and the stunning Northumberland Coast (AONB) only ten minutes away. Post Office House was fully refurbished into a high quality accommodation establishment in 2016 and we offer guests’ comfort and relaxation in our elegant Victorian home.  Sorry, no pets or children under 15 years.

Purpose-built in 1893 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. In changing times, Belford happily retains its post office service and now located within the Co-op on West Street.  The former route of the A1 (Great North Road) ran alongside Post Office House, up until 1983 when the current bypass was built half a mile to the east.

We are ideally 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 Oswald’s and St Cuthbert’s Way, the Northumberland Coastal Path and is a walking paradise.
