Bluebell Farm enjoys a quiet central location in the village of Belford. The A1 by-passes the village approximately one mile to the east, ensuring undisturbed peace combined with ready access to the main road linking Newcastle and Edinburgh. Midway between the historic towns of Alnwick to the south, and Berwick-upon-Tweed to the north, Belford was a stopping-off point in the days of the London to Edinburgh Mail Coaches. The Blue Bell Hotel, an old coaching inn, still overlooks the Market Square. Shops and pubs are all within easy walking distance, and there are good transport links to places further afield - the main east coast railway runs through Berwick, there are airports at Newcastle and Edinburgh, and a ferry service out of Newcastle to the continent. We are conveniently situated for some good walking and cycling routes (St. Cuthbert's Way, St. Oswalds's Way, the Coast and Castles route), providing a warm welcome to all who are passing through, or staying for a while. We are only 5 miles from Bamburgh with its wonderful beaches, 8 miles from the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, and 8 miles from Wooler, the gateway to the Cheviots and the Northumberland National Park. Bowden Doors and Kyloe Crag are very popular with climbers, and lie just minutes to the west. The historic Scottish Borders are only a few miles away, and there is a wealth of outdoor activities on offer in the area, including golf, riding, canoeing, cycling, diving and walking. The region is rich in history with many significant National Trust and English Heritage sites to visit, as well as a number of fine country houses and castles still in private ownership. Castles at Alnwick, Bamburgh and Chillingham have provided the backdrop to many films, Manderston hosted the Edwardian Country House series on Channel 4, and Hadrian's Wall managed a cameo part in "Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves". More recently, you may have seen some of the programmes on Northumberland presented by Robson Green, "Tales from Northumberland" and "More Tales from Northumberland", in which case you will already know what a magnificent county Northumberland is, and how much it has to offer! Click on "Links" to see just some of the attractions easily accessible from Belford, including the much acclaimed Dark Skies Experience at Kielder, the Farne Island boat tours operated from Seahouses, and much more.
Belford is a thriving community and there are a number of events which have taken place here in the past or which have become regular attractions - fireworks at New Year, Belford Village Show, a permanent local history exhibition, etc. Details of events are displayed on the Belford Village webpage, www.belfordvillage.co.uk as well as links to local facilities and attractions.
