One Night Stay


Jacob S,
Lovely, accommodating hosts. We stayed one night in a double bed room facing the idilic countryside fields at the back of the house. Food was excellent and the hosts are very friendly and helpful. Would certainly stay again.

An Excellent Overnight Stopover


Richard H, St Ives, United Kingdom
We chose to stay at the Post Office House to break our journey from Cambridge to Oban based upon the reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed and can only give this place 5 stars. The room was very clean and we were greeted with home made ginger cake. Bed was really comfy giving a great nights sleep with one of the nicest breakfasts at a B&B. I thoroughly recommend this place, believe me you will not be disappointed. One of the nicest places we have ever stayed at. Thank you.

Post Office House Bed & Breakfast replied: You are welcome, Richard H. What wonderful compliments, we are very flattered and thank you! We hope you enjoyed your break up in Oban and the weather was kind to you. It was lovely to meet you both, although only briefly but hope you will come back and visit us for a longer stay sometime. With kind regards and best wishes

Excellent stay


Stuart-willerby123, Hull
Just had three nights as the Post Office House which were excellent. Wonderful breakfast which set us up for the day. Excellent location just 10minutes drive from Bamburgh and the coast. Clare and Simon couldn't do enough for us. First class amenities in the room with very comfortable bed.

Post Office House Bed & Breakfast replied: Firstly, apologies for the delay in replying and secondly, thank you Stuart-willerby123 for leaving us this review. It is always very satisfying to hear that our breakfasts set people up for the day and this was obviously the case for you too! We have had numerous guests say the same, plus compliments about our comfy beds and the facilities we provide. We do try to think of everything so guests are wanting for nothing! We are delighted you had a lovely short break with us in Northumberland and hope to see you both again. Please do pass our best onto Louise :) With best wishes Claire and Simon

An excellent stopover with all aspects to a very high standard

Stayed just one night while walking St Oswald's Way. Nice room, immaculately prepared, and Claire provided an absolutely first class breakfast as well as a super packed lunch. A lovely experience throughout.

Post Office House Bed & Breakfast replied: Great feedback and thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, dlt975. We are delighted you enjoyed your very brief stay with us. We hope you return to us for a longer visit sometime, still lots to explore in Northumberland! With kind regards Claire

A lucky find


mycarb, Derby, United Kingdom
A two night stopover to break our long return journey from a holiday in Scotland. Very well placed, conveniently just off the A1 in the quiet village of Belford and close to Bamburgh and its sandy beaches. Claire and Simon were lovely hosts, nothing was too much trouble, the ginger cake on arrival was delicious. Our room was spotless and very comfortable with a lovely ensuite shower room, TV and a comprehensive assortment of teas and coffees etc. including the use of a Nespresso coffee machine. Breakfast was excellent with a huge choice of breakfast fare including Claire's delicious homemade marmalade and not forgetting Simon's homemade baked beans. We would not hesitate to make a return visit and highly recommend it.

Post Office House Bed & Breakfast replied: It is really encouraging to read such a complimentary review and account of your stay, mycarb and we are delighted everything was to satisfaction - thank you! We agree that we provide a comprehensive range of breakfast options, there is something on our menu for all tastes and we are delighted you enjoyed them including the homemade beans! It was a pleasure to have you to stay with us and look forward to seeing you again. Thank you also for the recommendation. With kind regards Claire and Simon
