We have never stayed so near the trains but they were no problem and we slept well in a very comfortable bed prior to an excellent breakfast accompanied by a wealth of stories from our hostess whose choice of bathroom furniture and equipment was a eye-opener.
Stayed for two nights, and Michelle made us most welcome from the minute we pulled on to the drive.
The room was home from home and all amenities were provided to be self sufficient, should you wish to prepare a meal. We each slept soundly, the bed was extremely comfortable, and we weren't disturbed by anything despite being next to the railway tracks. Belford is ideally placed as a central point from which to discoved the local area and all it has to offer, and Michelle is the perfect person to help with information about the area, and point you in the right direction. Would i return?. Definitely!!
On arrival we were greeted by Michelle the owner, offering to have our luggage carried for us.
We were introduced to the dining room before being shown our room, at which point we both said WOW.
Before I go further I will point out that if you prefer your B&B to be clinical and check tops of painting frames for dust then book a sterile box somewhere else. This whole building is just WOW. I recommend googling old images - We absolutely loved it. Our room was the one pictured on laterooms, with a bathroom bigger than a normal hotel room. Rolled top bath, double shower and vanity basins. The room has the biggest and most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, it was like 2 double beds in one. The TV is an up to date Samsung 50" and the room is equipped with a fridge and everything needed to make your stay as comfortable as possible, I enjoyed the fruit and Sally enjoyed the chocs. Now I have already mentioned the owner Michelle, but read on....... Michelle has put everything into making this B&B the gem that it is. She is a local lady and will entertain you with her vast knowledge and humour while serving you breakfast - which is gorgeous. Everything you would expect and more is available but also as much banter as you desire. It is very rare to come across such a fantastic host, we had some really great chats and learned so much about the area, in between laughing with her. Michelle, you need to write a book.
This was a truly wonderful visit, we did everything we wanted including a boat trip to see loads of seals basking just off the coast. Thank you x
Old Station House B&B
Great place to stay.
Fantastic accommodation, great hosts, lovely location.
We stayed here for a couple of nights in august as we wanted to visit a few places in northumberland, as well as a day trip over the border to Edinburgh.
The b&b is a gorgeous, well maintained old station house, that ooze's with character. It has a gated courtyard providing offroad parking. Michelle and peter were welcoming and friendly, and couldnt do enough for us. Our room was exceptionally clean with modern decor, tea/coffee facilities, mini fridge, with complementary fruit bowl and chocolate. The bed was extremely comfortable with plenty of space for the two of us.
The bathroom was amazing with a huge freestanding bath made for two. Michelles cooked breakfast's are fantastic, cooked to your liking using local produce.
It may be an old station house, but the tracks are still in use. It is a mainline line from london to edinburgh, but honestly, after the first train has passed, you stop noticing them. It does not affect your stay in any way what so ever. So good, We are planning to book again again later in the year. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Its located within minutes drive off the A1, with bamburgh castle and beach 10 minutes away, or Drive 10 minutes north up the A1 to holy island. Edinburgh is about an hours drive.
Very friendly and quirky
A very individual room with everything you need and some thoughtful extras.
The couple in charge are incredibly friendly and helpful, giving lots of local advice and knowledge on anywhere you are interested in visiting. Not directly in Belford but very nearby and within easy distance of holy island and Seahouses for a visit to the Farne Islands. A great stay!
A real home from home
It felt like a really bespoke visit.
Michelle offered local advice about eating in the evening and was keen to give us breakfast exactly how we wanted it even down to how we wanted our eggs scrambled. Our room was large and very comfy and the roll top bath was a treat. Would definitely return when in the area again
Accommodation and Owners Full of Character
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay.
The house is a fascinating blend of original decor rooms in a listed building and very modern fittings. Customer service was excellent and the owners were a mine of information about local facilities.
Home from home !
Fantastic welcoming hosts.
Great room, even better bathroom, bath big enough for 2. Scrumptious breakfast !
