Re-Opening 24th July 2020

Re: Covid Preparedness – Simon was a Technical Manager in Food Manufacturing and Claire has a First Class Honours degree in Hospitality Management so we `know our onions’ with regards to safety measures and protocols. We still have a few more things to finalise and want to make absolutely sure that everything is in place and ready so we are safe for both guests and us.


We have private off-road parking as well as parking in front of our bed and breakfast.

We are also classic car/motorcycle fans (we have motorcycles ourselves) and we are on the old Great North Road: car, motorcycle and old road fanatics love this!

We provide a home from home, personal experience with award winning quality breakfasts and excellent hospitality.

We’re also handy for the annual Belford Car Show (see photo gallery below).


Check-in times 4 pm to 6 pm

Open 24 hours for bookings and enquiries as this can be done by email or by website.


Please note, we do have a very small ramp (about an inch high) on entrance to our driveway – highway stipulation to stop gravel going onto the public pathway!

Our car park may not be suitable for very large cars or those without power steering as the car park is reasonably `compact’ with not much turning (if your car is power assisted steering) – although we have one space per room and we have had a number people with both larger vehicles and classic cars park in it, not everybody may be confident to reverse out or to turn round in the car park.  However, we do wish to make guests aware that for those not confident, then cars can be parked outside our house.


You can clean your car here and we have a car cleaning service in the village who clean cars in situ.

You can also find us on Wolsey Lodges and Sawday’s.

Q Do we serve evening meals?

No. Although we have two village pubs, the Black Swan (warm welcome, real ales and real fire) and The Salmon Inn within a minutes wal, the Black Swan is no longer serving food and The Salmon is currently only providing a delivery/take-away service. We do have Sunnyhills Farm Shop who serve evening meals Fri and Sat, between July and September. We also have some fantastic pubs/restaurants with more diverse choices, a few miles from us and we are very happy to recommend or reserve a table for you. Due to Covid-19 it is essential to pre-book a table to dine. We have an extensive list on our website under 'Local Area'.

Q Do you have a taxi service?

Yes, located in Belford. Our local `cabby' Gordon at Croft Cabs, very professional, reliable and reasonably priced service and has to be booked prior.

Q Do you accept one-night reservations?

Due to extra cleaning/disinfecting we have to implement due to Covid-19, together with our time and turnaround involved, we regret we are no longer accepting one-night stays - sorry!


Q Where is the nearest petrol station?

Located two miles A1 south (Adderstone Services) and four miles A1 north (Beal Services)

Q Do you allow dogs?

Regrettably no! Despite clear information on our website, we still receive enquiries asking if we accept dogs! The answer is, very sorry but strictly no pets of any description (except assistance dogs).

Q How far are we from Bamburgh, Holy Island, Farne Islands?

A 10 minute drive to Bamburgh, 15 minutes to Seahouses (boat trips sail from here to the Farne Islands) and Holy Island is around 20 minutes. Holy Island is only accessible at LOW TIDE along the causeway, you can drive or walk to the island. Safe crossing times MUST be adhered to.

Q Do you cater for special diets?

Yes, we do but with advance notice only. Please note: Any special foodstuffs that we are required to purchase IN ADDITION to what we already provide on our standard menu such as gluten-free sausages/dairy-free spread, non-dairy milk, the cost of any additional item(s) will be charged to your room. We do our own bespoke Vegan menu, this is extra at £5 per person, per day. Please see our website for further information on special diets and requirements.

Q Driving routes and stop off for a pint!

Spoilt for choice in Northumberland and there are some stunning drives in the Scottish Borders too! One of our favourite drives is the road to Bamburgh where you can park up at Budle Bay to do some birdwatching or to soak up the stunning coastline here and the drop down into Bamburgh is breathtaking. Have a pint of real ale at the Black Bull in Etal (only thatched pub in Northumberland, with tasty local ales from the Cheviot Brewery. Lovely drive from Bamburgh to Ford and Etal or the other way round!
