Our Inspector's View
This property was built in 1893 as a dedicated post office with its own sorting room and telegraph facilities, then many years later it was lovingly restored and made into a B&B. Inside are high quality fixtures, fittings and many thoughtful extras. The hospitality is excellent and enhanced with home-baking as well as the offer of a glass of the famous Lindisfarne Mead. Breakfast is a highlight of a stay. This is a wonderful location, close to the coastal areas of Bamburgh and Seahouses but just a few minutes’ drive from the A1. The Cheviots are also in easy striking distance.

About The area
If it’s history you’re after, there’s heaps of it in Northumberland. On Hadrian’s Wall you can imagine scarlet-cloaked Roman legionaries keeping watch for painted Pictish warriors while cursing the English weather and dreaming of home. Desolate battlefield sites and hulking fortresses such as Alnwick, Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Warkworth are reminders that this, until not so very long ago, was a contested border region. The ruins of Lindisfarne bear witness to the region’s early Christian history.
Northumberland also has some of Britain’s best beaches. On summer days, and even in winter, you’ll see surfers and other brave souls making the most of the coast. Inland, there are some great walks and bike rides in the dales of the Cheviot Hills and the Simonsides – just hilly enough to be interesting, without being brutally steep. There's dramatic scenery in the High Pennines, where waterfalls plunge into deep valleys, and there are swathes of heather-scented moorland. Northumberland National Park covers over 400 square miles of moorland and valleys with clear streams and pretty, stone-built villages. It’s just the place for wildlife watching too. You’ll find flocks of puffins, guillemots and other seabirds around the Farne Islands, and seals and dolphins offshore.
