Things To Do in Belford

This charming village is tucked away inland not far from the coast, about five miles from Bamburgh Beach, and just a short drive into the Northumberland National Park. The Salmon Inn is under half a mile from The Hideaway and is an ideal place to get to know the locals who will be full of suggestions as to where the area’s best kept secrets are. If you are a keen ale drinker then there is no doubt you will be trying out the inn’s Sling Yer Hook ale, made especially for it by the nearby VIP Brewery. It’s a dog-friendly pub and comes with a darts’ board, pool table, and shows all major sporting events, as well as hosting live music and karaoke evenings.

Just outside Belford is Sunnyhills Farm Shop that boasts a gift shop that could keep you browsing for hours and a deli serving hot and cold food to take away, as well as locally baked bread, homemade Scotch eggs and pork pies and cheeses and ice cream from nearby dairies. If you are planning a picnic on nearby Bamburgh Beach, then this place to come to stock up on alfresco must-haves. During certain times of the year the farm shop’s brasserie is open for evening meals.

Forget about using your car because there is a regular bus service from Belford to Bamburgh, renowned for its stretch of golden sands and Seahouses, nine miles away, where you can choose a cruise to the Farne Islands on a customised boat that regularly sails from the harbour. Billy Shiels’ Sunset Cruise is perfect for diehard romantics.

Last Word

Whether it be sun, sea and sand that floats your boat or discovering miles and miles of scenic countryside in a national park, Belford ticks all the boxes. Right outside the bifold doors is a garden that is a haven for birds, and you might see an inquisitive donkey or two sticking their noses over the fence.

Most places, from the local pub to the boats that sail to the Farne Islands, are pet friendly. If your little salty seadog can find his or her sea legs, then it’s all aboard to see thousands of puffins and colonies of seals less than four miles off the coast.

This location means that one day its exploring the countryside, and the other enjoying the stunning coastline with its good water quality and golden sand quite often overlooked by majestic castles. There is kayaking on the estuary and surfing in the waves at Bamburgh and if it’s not a beach-weather day, then you can climb up to the castle for refreshments at the café and a wander around this vast fortress that has stood guard high up on a craggy outcrop for 1,400 years.

The Hideaway is a retreat that promises rest and relaxation and its contemporary interior’s light and airy space lets the rural delights of the outdoors in.
