Belford is a picturesque village situated in the stunning Northumberland countryside. Belford’s Church, with it’s Norman chancel, and the 18th century Belford Hall, with Grade 1  listed building status, are just a few of the many historical buildings in the village.  Situated half way between Alnwick and Berwick-upon-Tweed, Belford is surrounded by rich pastoral farmland, hilly terrains and rocky crags. Belford is a popular destination for rock climbers, hill walkers, golfers and cyclists.

In days gone by, Belford was a thriving postal town and an old coaching ‘watering hole’ which served travellers venturing over the borders between England and Scotland. Today, the village is a much quieter place and an ideal as a holiday base. Belford gives holidaymakers the easy access to the breath taking Northumberland Coast to the East, the Cheviot Hills to the West and the Scottish Borders to the North. Apple Tree Cottage lies in the heart of Belford  and as you step out from the cottage  you are minutes away from local pubs, restaurants and shops.
Belford provides the prefect holidaymakers retreat. There is so much to do for fans of the great outdoors, wildlife, thrill-seekers or those simply wishing to their feet up and relax in Northumberland’s peaceful tranquillity.
