Simon and Claire welcome you to their home at Post Office House in Belford, a AA Four-Star Gold bed and breakfast. Post Office House has been extensively refurbished into a quality accommodation establishment, where guests can experience comfort and relaxation in our elegant Grade II Listed Victorian home.
Simon, a former Assistant Chef, prepares and cooks our delicious breakfasts whilst Claire looks after front-of-house, together with all administration and marketing duties! We offer guests a personal `home-from-home’ experience with excellent hospitality to match. We have a combination of 50 years hospitality and food experience between us. Prior to re-locating and founding Post Office House, Simon was previously a Quality Assurance/Technical Manager for a Food Manufacturing company who made and supplied chilled foods for Waitrose, Marks and Spencer’s and Booths. Claire worked for a London-based Fine Art Auctioneers for 12 years, then at a four-star luxury castle hotel in Yorkshire, as well as holding a 1st Class BA (Hons) in Hospitality Management.
We are ideally located between Alnwick and Berwick-upon-Tweed and a couple of minutes drive off the A1. The stunning coastline and sandy beaches of Bamburgh and Budle Bay are within a ten minute drive. The award-winning Embleton beach and Dunstanburgh Castle are 15 miles away. Belford is perfectly situated to explore the extensive and diverse range of attractions Northumberland has to offer, including the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, Farne Islands, Cheviot Hills and the many famous castles such as Alnwick, Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh and Chillingham (just to name a few!) The Scottish Borders are only 15 miles from us and Edinburgh a 40 minute journey by train.
We have private off-street parking for three cars and complimentary WiFi. Our guests are welcome to use our quiet secluded garden, to relax with a book or a glass of wine in the summer months, overlooking open fields and our lovely resident sheep and their brood of lambs in the Spring!
Classic/Vintage Car and Motorcycle Enthusiasts are also welcome at Post Office House. We have many motor rally events throughout our region and the Scottish Borders, including our very own one in Belford every April. We are members of Petrolheads Welcome, an organisation dedicated to all vintage or classic vehicle fans out there!
We are also members of the following organisations where you will find a wealth of information about Northumberland, where to go, what to do; also where to find excellent, local produce from a wide range of independent producers and suppliers so you can take abit of Northumberland home with you.
