AA 5 Stars Guest House

Market Cross is a 200 year old former coaching house which now offers luxury accomodation for those wishing to enjoy North Northumberlands many attractions. We have 4 rooms, all beautifully decorated and equipped to the high standard expected of 5*. All our rooms have a Nespresso coffee machine, kettle, an array of teas and hot drinks and bottled water. All our rooms have DAB clock radio (doubles have iPod dock), mini fridge, iron/ironing board, hair dryer. All en-suite bathroom/shower rooms have soft bathsheets, bath robes and complimentary toiletries.


We have an extensive breakfast menu which offers both standard dishes as well as a few things you may not see elsewhere. Everything is cooked fresh and we use as many localy sourced ingredients as we possibly can.


We also offer evening meals from Monday to Thusday. These can be ordered by contacting us directly and we can send you our selection of seasonal menus for you to choose from. Alternatively you can see the menus on our website. Dinner must be ordered at least 48 hours before arrival and as we are not geared up the same as a restaurant would be, we cannot cater for multiple menu choices so it would be one menu for your whole party.

We are close to Northumberlands beautiful coastline, the unspoilt Cheviot Hills and the numerous castles and monuments of this historic county.

Among the attractions are Lindisfarne (Holy Island), Bamburgh Castle, Alnwick Castle (location for the Harry Potter films) and the Alnwick Gardens. Cragside and many more. We provide the most comfortable of accommodation in which to relax after a long day walking, cycling or just enjoying the wonderful locations, all within about 30 minutes of Belford.

It is a joy to explore and discover the miles of wonderful beaches, spectacular rocky shores or follow the rivers up into Cheviot Hills where you might not see anyone all day. Nearby there is also fishing and a number of excellent golf courses.
