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. Hand sanitisers are located before you enter Post Office House, outside the guest entrance; at the bottom of the stairs; the Breakfast Room and one in each guest bedroom. We are also accredited with the AA Covid-19 Confident and Visit England `Good to Go’ schemes.


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 circle. However, as many classics/vintage vehicles are narrower and smaller than modern cars, it is easier to manoeuvre. Although both larger vehicles and classic cars have parked without a problem, we appreciate not everybody is confident to reverse out or to turn round, therefore cars can be parked outside our house.  There is also a right of access into the neighbouring property and on rare occasions, may have to ask guests to move their vehicles if access is required.


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 you serve evening meals?

Occasionally we do but don’t shout about it!

Meal times at 6 pm, 6.30 pm or 7 pm. Guests are welcome to bring their own wine as we do not have an alcohol licence.

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 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! Also along our stunning coastline via Seahouses, Embleton, Craster and Warkworth.
