Nestled around a medieval market cross in an ancient market square, Belford is a little
pocket of thriving history in the north of Northumberland. Belford was historically very
important thanks to its position in the North of England, but now enjoys much more relaxed
and sedate pace of life.
Situated amongst breathtaking panoramas, it is well positioned for walking and cycling
enthusiasts looking for an adventurous holiday. Belford is a great base from which to explore, especially with the array of gorgeous, historic little cottages available as accommodation.
With stunning historical properties nearby and littered throughout the Cumbrian and
Northumbrian countryside, there is no shortage of days out. As well as mansions and stately
homes, there is also a rich culture of industrial heritage in the area to learn about. Pack up a
picnic and explore the treasure troves of heritage in the region, or take an extensive trip to
discover the wonder of Hadrian's Wall.
With a close knit and friendly community Belford offers visitors the chance to support great
local businesses, ranging from art galleries to boutiques. Local crafts, fine cuisine and farmers' markets all give plentiful excuses to visit the area!
Belford benefits from having a whole range of different golf courses near by, meaning that
one half of any couple can enjoy a round of golf, whilst the other one indulges in some serious retail therapy!
