    About this property

    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.

    "The location was good, the bedrooms were nice but the overall layout of the property was not suitable for our family group.The kitchen was down a steep set of stairs and therefore not accessible for my 83 year old mother, they were also hazardous for my 3 year old grandson. Carrying food, plates and cutlery up and down the stairs from the kitchen to dining room and back was not fun! There was no designated parking spaces"

    "Belford is a lovely friendly village. The Black Swan Hotel was especially welcoming. We had all the amenities of the village but were close enough to the beach and countryside too. The house was spacious and quirky and the beds we're comfortable. The layout was difficult with a flight of stairs between the kitchen and dining room and some twin rooms rather than double beds would be better for families. Our teenage girls did not appreciate sharing a bed and the sofa bed was very uncomfortable. The back yard was not well cared for and there was no pleasant outdoor space. The worst aspect of the cottage was the noise of the plumbing. From the downstairs bedroom there was constant loud noise of flushing toilets and gushing water, including through the night. The first time we went to use the oven we found leftover pizza on the grill pan . The oven was not clean overall and complicated to use. We would love to return to Belford but unfortunately not in this cottage."

    "The exterior of the property hides the quality and size of the inside. It is a beautiful 3 level house with 4 double en-suite bedrooms. Spotless. I would say the interior of the property is bordering on if not 5 star quality. Wee town and people also very nice. We went to Seahouses, Berwick Upon Tweed, Beadnell (amazing beach with sand dunes. The kids sledged on the dunes), Holy Island. An all round lovely holiday."

    "Fantastic location. The Black Swan pub across the road does lovely food and welcomes dogs. Handy local supermarket too. Easy access to local beaches and countryside, and convenient for the A1 if you want to explore further afield. Despite being trapped in Belford for 2 extra days due to heavy snow, we found plenty to do on the doorstep. Cottage was very cosy and warm. Our only criticism would be that the kitchen was very cold indeed, and the stairs down to it were very steep which was was not made clear when we booked, and was not great for the older family members or our elderly greyhound. Otherwise, a very comfortable stay indeed and perfect house for a larger family get together."

    "Lovely cottage let down by the kitchen. The bedrooms, living room and dining room were all lovely with some nice quirky features. However, it seemed as if the owners hadn't got round to updating the kitchen yet. We stayed over Christmas and although the weather was quite mild the kitchen was freezing - even with both ovens going. There is a radiator but it's round a corner by the back door and had no effect on the kitchen at all. For a property marketed to sleep 8-10 people the stock of kitchenware and utensils was inadequate: not enough wine glasses for 6 people; no highballs etc, just a few mismatched tumblers. No oven gloves!(had to buy our own) Only 2 tea towels provided for a 4 night stay (had to buy extra). Plenty of knives, forks and spoons but not a lot else. Tin opener useless (had to buy our own). The cleanliness of the kitchen was also not great (the rest of the property was fine) - cutlery, plates and pans had obviously just been taken out of the dishwasher and put away without being checked and most were dirty. Such a shame that a lovely property was let down by poor basic standards and hopefully it was just down to the owners being new to holiday letting. One final thing - it needs to be highlighted in the cottage description that there is a steep set of stairs between the kitchen and the dining room (just so people are prepared to have to carry their Christmas dinner from one floor to the next). We would happily stay again (despite the kitchen gripes) as the location is great - nice local pubs, walks and a well stocked co-op round the corner."
