How To Find Us

From A1 Northbound

We are 2 miles after Purdy Lodge services, turn left onto the B6349.  Follow the old Great North Road into the centre of the village. Past the market cross with St Mary’s Church on your left, Post Office House is the tall Victorian building in front of the red pillar box on the right hand side. The gold and black Post Horn sign is also a landmark!  Our driveway entrance is immediately to the right of the pillar box.

From A1 Southbound

We are 4 miles south of Holy Island junction, take the right turning, signposted Detchant and Middleton. This is the original route of the old A1 (Great North Road). Follow this route for one mile. We are located at the bottom of North Bank on the left. We are in front of the red pillar box with our driveway entrance immediately before this.

We have private off-street parking for one car (prebook) parking also available outside Post Office House or in the Market Square.

Get In Touch

Reservations can be made securely online or by telephoning us. Likewise, if you have an availability or reservation enquiry, we pick up all telephone messages, emails and enquiries via our contact form below. We also have access to calls and messages away from the premises and will answer any enquiries as quickly as possible, usually within a hour (depending on mobile signal where we are at the time).

We kindly ask that you do not telephone after 9.00 pm (we need down-time too!) or before 11.00 am as we may be busy preparing/serving breakfasts and then checking-out any departing guests.

A polite request please! We clearly state that we do not accept dogs/pets of any description and adult only (over 18 years) at Post Office House, therefore ask that our booking information is read before making an enquiry about such or committing to making a reservation.  It is a waste of both your time and ours – thank you!
