Belford is a large popular village in Northumberland only 5 miles from the county’s beautiful coastline. The village is easily accessed from the A1 which is situated only two minutes drive from the Main Street.

The Village benefits from a range of amenities such as local shops, including a Co-op, three pubs as well as cafes and a number of B&Bs. More amenities can be easily accessed via the A1, in the larger towns of Alnwick, located 15 miles south, or Berwick-upon –Tweed, 15 miles north which has an East Coast mainline station offering services north to Edinburgh or south to Newcastle upon Tyne.


17-21 Main Street provides an exciting mix of income producing residential premises with an excellent add-value opportunity via the vacant commercial unit.

17 Main Street, known as Ludlow Cottage  offers bright and deceptively large accommodation over two floors. The cottage has previously operated as a successful holiday let but is now let on an AST basis, further details of which are available on request. The cottage briefly comprises a large family kitchen/diner room with a kitchen island, wall and base units, integrated appliances and plentiful storage. Directly accessed from the kitchen/diner is a rear courtyard with seating as well as access to the snug room, a formal lounge and traditional family bathroom. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, one of which benefits from built in wardrobes and en-suite.

Adjoining to the cottage is the shop, with self contained access to Belford Main Street. The shop comprises a front retail section with a traditional shop front whilst to the rear there is a large showroom/workroom which has access to the rear yard. There is also an access from the shop into the cottage. The shop is currently vacant but provides a fantastic opportunity for a new owner to occupy, re-let or redevelop.

To the rear of the site is a detached stone-built studio, with a modern pitched, tiled roof. The studio benefits from two sets of glazed doors opening directly onto the courtyard. The property comprises an open plan living suite along with a separate small kitchen and bathroom. Just like Ludlow Cottage, it has previously been used as a holiday let but is currently occupied on an AST basis.

Externally the property boasts a large, paved courtyard which provides significant off street parking facilities which are shared between the three properties.
