Lyon Cake House
4 bedrooms, sleeps 8
Lyon Cake House is a suitable choice for families and friends seeking a great base from which to explore the Northumbrian countryside or Heritage coastline.
Aptly named after the popular traditional bakery it once was, Lyon Cake House is situated within the high street of the welcoming village of Belford and located only 6 miles west of Bamburgh. The accommodation within this Grade II listed building is spread over three floors ensuring this property is a suitable choice for larger parties. The property is adorned with bespoke features and has been cleverly designed with quirky and interesting fixtures and fittings throughout.
A friendly greeting regularly awaits visitors to Belford. This charming village is often described as the ’Gateway to the Secret Kingdom’ and offers many facilities including an impressive golf driving range, shops, a tea room, and pubs renowned for serving good food. Belford is also famous for being an old coaching town linking Newcastle-upon-Tyne to Edinburgh, and all of the towns between Alnwick and Berwick-upon-Tweed.
A local cave is where the body of the monk St Cuthbert was hidden, after the Viking invasion of Lindisfarne in AD875. The picture postcard coastal village of Bamburgh, dominated by its majestic fortress and wide expanse of golden, sandy beach is a mere 6 miles east. The small and friendly market town of Wooler sits at the foot of the Cheviot Hills, 12 miles west, a popular destination for those who enjoy cycling, hang-gliding, golf, horse riding and walking with the challenging route of the St Cuthbert’s Way passing close by.
Chatton Trout Fishery invites amateur anglers to fish without a rod licence in a picturesque 4-acre lake close by. The A1 is less than a mile away giving easy access to the elegant Georgian town of Berwick-upon-Tweed to the north, which straddles the salmon-rich River Tweed, and the cobbled, market town of Alnwick to the south, protected by its dramatic castle, both 15 miles away and offering a wide array of amenities.
Alnwick Garden is a popular visitor attraction to see the Grand Cascade Waterfall and dine in the restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe! Take a trip to the vibrant cities of Newcastle-upon-Tyne or Edinburgh, both are only an hour’s drive, or enjoy the journey by train from Berwick or Alnmouth.
Gatherings of family and friends will find this the perfect base for exploring the countryside of north Northumberland along with the Northumberland Heritage Coastline, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Scottish Borders. If you tire of touring the area, Belford also has a small museum and a spa. Beach 6 miles. Shop and pub within 100 yards, restaurant 150 yards
