Please find below a selection of self catering holiday cottages to rent in Belford, Northumberland.
If you're looking for a scenic base to tour North Northumberland, a Belford holiday cottage places you close to the coast and to the Cheviot Hills. The Scottish Borders are handy too.
Belford is a very old, very quiet and very friendly village, with a traditional market square crowned by a medieval cross. Drop by in August and find a bustling continental market here. There's a good variety of shops including crafts, toys and a supermarket, along with a fish & chips shop and a hotel with restaurant and bar.
Play golf? Just a short stroll from the village centre is The Belford, a lovely parkland course with panoramic views of the Holy Island of Lindisfarne in the distance. Each hole can be played from two different angles and there's a floodlit driving range to practise your swing.
Should you prefer walking, Belford is a great place to join the coastal path and St Cuthbert's Way - Bamburgh Castle is just five miles away and the village of Fenwick a pleasant six mile walk through woods and over rugged moors. Or visit the local riding centre and enjoy a hack through St Cuthbert's Wood, protected by the National Trust and home to a mysterious cave. Rock climbing is also popular, as is cycling along the many tranquil lanes and wooded trails.
Day trip ideas include boat trips to the Farne Islands from
Seahouses; the Northumberland National Park; the award-winning
Alnwick Garden; historic Berwick-upon-Tweed...all this and more on
a Belford cottage holiday.
