Superb B & B


Fiona B, Eastbourne, United Kingdom
This B&B is an absolute gem. We were greeted with a very warm welcome from Claire which included a slice of delicious home made cake. Our room was beautifully appointed with many thoughtful touches including some tasty Lindisfarne mead which served as a fine nightcap. The guests' information folder was extensive and clear. Our room was very comfortable with high quality furnishings and gorgeous soft towels. Nothing was too much trouble for our extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic hosts, Claire and Simon, who kindly reserved tables at local restaurants for our evening meals. The breakfasts are excellent, using mainly locally sourced top quality ingredients. Highlights include fresh fruit salad, Greek yoghurt, Craster Smokery kippers and smoked salmon plus Simon's home made baked beans. We travelled by public transport and the bus stop is outside this wonderful venue. We cannot recommend it highly enough.

Great place with excellent service


mjLincs, Lincs
We spent one night on our way north and I think it is one of the very best B&Bs we have stayed in. The room was light, very tastefully decorated, super clean and very comfortable. Claire and Simon made very effort to ensure we had a good stay including helping to book a very good restaurant nearby for dinner. The breakfast was amazing, and such a good idea to order the night before. The enthusiasm of the hosts shines through everything and we will definitely chose to stay at the Post Office House next time we come up the coast. The location is ideal for exploring Holy Island and other sites along the coast.

Perfect place to relax after a day's walking


EmT28, Hexham, United Kingdom
We were walking St Oswald's Way and stayed only one night, but the warm welcome, cosy room (with a few little 'extras'!), comfy bed and superb breakfast were just what we needed. All you could ask for in a B&B and the best one on our route!

Gary W,
Hosts Claire and Simon ensure that The Post Office provides the very best of experiences for their guests. The rooms are superbly appointed, scrupulously clean and thoughtfully provided in every respect. The attention to detail and the consideration given to catering for guests needs are exceptional. Breakfast choices are wide and the quality of food is absolutely excellent. This is a place to return to time and again.

A true gem


Clare C,
Spent a wonderful couple of nights here whilst exploring the Northumberland coast,for which the property is ideally situated. The hospitality & impeccable high standards of Claire & Simon made this visit truly special. They literally have anticipated and thought of anything you may need to make your stay the most comfortable ever. From the well appointed spotlessly clean room to delicious cooked breakfasts & extra touches of homemade cake & Lindisfarne mead and the warmth of your hosts- you won't want to leave! 1st choice for a visit to the area by far - I definately hope to return
