Latest reviews | Events in Belford | 10 Places to Stay

The town of Belford lies forty nine miles north of Newcastle, in Northumberland, in a vale whereby it is sheltered from the easterly winds by a line of hills which in turn, give way to the coastal plain. The area is mainly agricultural supporting both crops and animals. Margaret Tudor, daughter of Henry VII, stayed at Belford on her jouney north to marry James IV of Scotland in 1502. Subsequent history of Belford is that of a post town, situated on the London to Edinburgh post road. Belford Hall, to the east of the town, was built in the 1750ís by Abraham Dixon and remains a good example of an eighteenth century mansion set in parkland. Some of its features are from laters designs of the architect James Paine. Once the most populated village in the district as well as being a market town, Belford grew during the nineteenth century, the census in 1801 recording 902 inhabitants which, by 1852 had grown to 1,226 and 234 houses. It also had a union workhouse, which in 1851 contained 26 people. The Blue Bell Inn, once a thriving coaching inn serving travelers on their journeys, was transformed when the railway was completed in 1852.
