Our clients purchased this property in 2014 and since then have completely overhauled the subjects resulting in a beautifully presented boutique Guest House which opened in 2017. There are currently 5 en-suite rooms available with scope to add another 2 rooms on the upper floor and potentially utilise the stunning owners accommodation on the ground floor should a new owner wish to do so.

The current owners previously offered a Post Office and retail offering from the premises, there is scope to reintroduce this side of the business should someone wish to do so or look at developing this part of the property into further letting rooms/dining area.

Access to the retail unit is made directly off the Main Street in the town, there is further retail space located towards the rear with good sized office/storage facilities in behind.

Belford House is immaculately presented throughout and enjoys much repeat custom, it has exceptional reviews on Tripadvisor Reviews-Belford_House-Haltwhistle_Northumberland_England.html

Income is derived from the guest house business and Belford House as a property offers a wide range of potential development ideas or as it is would offer a nice income to a hands on couple looking to operate a business in a stunning countryside location whilst having Newcastle accessible within a 45 minute drive.
