`First Class’ Christmas at Post Office House Bed and Breakfast, Northumberland 2019


For the first time since we opened in 2016, we have made the decision to throw our doors open for the Festive period.  Christmas is such a lovely time of the year and although it can be a very busy period for some, it is also a perfect excuse for a Festive break with some `us or me’ time away from all the hustle and bustle and for some tranquility! On Christmas Day or Boxing Day, take a walk along one of the beautiful beaches we have a short drive away from us and come and see why Northumberland was voted the British Travel Awards Best Holiday UK Destination in 2018 and more recently Bamburgh voted Best Coastal Destination in the UK in a Which? survey

Winter Warmer Special Offer

We are again repeating our popular Winter Warmer offers for November, *December and January.  Early in the New Year can feel rather `flat’ after the Festive period so this is the perfect opportunity to grab some relaxing time to recharge the batteries!

*Stay with us for three nights or more and we will give you your final night for free!  

Of course, not forgetting that Northumberland has plenty for the visitor at this time of year too.  Although many of the main attractions are closed for the season, there are an abundance of beautiful walks along our stunning beaches, such as Bamburgh and Embleton or further afield at Druridge Bay, not forgetting the fabulous Barter Books, a brilliant place to visit and to just soak up the fantastic atmosphere in a fascinating Grade II Listed Victorian former railway station, with roaring coal fires, more books that you can possibly imagine and a cafe selling a wide range of delicious homemade lunches, light snacks and afternoon teas. Cragside, home of Victorian pioneer, Lord William Armstrong, is open throughout the low season and this fascinating house and grounds is an absolute must-visit.

Or browse around one of our gorgeous market towns; Alnwick, Berwick, Morpeth, Wooler or even a trip into Edinburgh or Newcastle. We are on a direct bus route to Berwick station and trains to Edinburgh are only 40 minutes from there.  We also are on a direct bus journey straight into the city of Newcastle from just outside our door – great excuse to leave the car behind and not have to worry or pay parking fees.

Or maybe a complete chill-out or treat is on the cards after a busy year, such as spa treatment or two!  We are a few miles away from three beauty places who have a variety of wonderful massage treatments and swimming pools at Beau Monde at Lucker, Ocean Club at Seahouses or Doxford Hall, all within a 15 minute drive.

For enquiries and reservations, please go to the `Book Now’ tab or give us a call.  We are also open for Christmas for the first time this year, from Christmas Eve through to 27th December, go to First Class Christmas Package for more details.
