Market Cross Guest House Pros: Very nice accommodations Cons: None to speak of. Friendly hosts. Room was small, but comfortable. Very small en-suite, but included a good shower. Tea and coffee provided in the room, and access to free port and mead. Comfortable bed and TV available in the room. Great breakfast with lots of variety.

Perhaps the best B&B I've stayed in. Beautifully-decorated rooms; all amenities (coffee maker, teas, bottled water, home-made fudge, toiletries, iron, shoe-cleaning kit and so on); very comfortable bed. Superlative breakfast, cooked freshly to order. Wonderfully friendly owners. Great location for Bamburgh. 100% recommended.

Stayed two nights at Market Cross on a recent visit to Northumberland. The village of Belford was ideally located for our visits to Alnwick and Bamburgh. The guests house itself was of a very high standard and the attention to detail and effort to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable was evident from the start. Breakfast was a real treat... More

I had wanted to explore this part of Northumberland for years and came across this delightful B and B while researching the area. What a wonderful find it was. Amanda and Steve who run the B and B couldn't have been more welcoming, they loaned me books on the local attractions and walks on Lyndisfarne gave me discount vouchers for... More

Stayed three nights at this lovely guesthouse. Enjoyed everything about it - stayed in the Blue room which is very tastefully decorated. Loved the shutters at the windows, the roll top bath, the homemade flap jack just to name a few things. Amanda and Steve are lovely hosts and if we are lucky enough to stay here again we will...

We had a couple of nights at Market Cross on our way to a wedding. It was a great find - comfortable and clean rooms with real attention to detail. Steve and Louise were lovely hosts, friendly, informative and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts were excellent and the home made flap jacks fantastic! Definitely 10 out of 10!... More

We stayed for just 1 night when recently visiting Northumbria. The location was perfect for us as we were planning a visit to Bamburgh Castle and Lindisfarne both of which were within a 15 minute drive. The guest house was beautifully decorated and the rooms we very comfortable. The level of equipment provided was excellent including a coffee maker. Little... More

Lovely guest house, decorated immaculately in excellent taste. The room and en-suite bathroom were of a good size and very well appointed with an excellent range of toiletries, big fluffy towels and bathrobes. The room had its own Nespresso machine supplied with my favourite coffee pods. The couple who run the guest house were very friendly and helpful. This was... More

Ideal location to explore Northumberland. The Guest house itself is welcoming, clean, modern & the attention to detail is second to none. We spent three nights here & felt very much at home. Breakfast is good and well cooked. The village is quiet with a couple of places to eat if you don't want to drive, but bear in mind... More

This is a wonderful small B&B in the centre of Belford and not too far from all the attractions in the area. Steve and Amanda strive to provide your every need and also make home-made bread and jams. The breakfasts are very good. Our room was comfortable, light and airy and had all the equipment and extras such as home-made... More
