La Gendarmerie is the former old Police House situated on the High Street in the bustling, ancient village of Belford, North Northumberland. La Gendarmerie, as its name suggests was originally the home of the village "Bobby" along with his family. The property has undergone a complete refurbishment and offers both stylish design with comfortable, modern accommodation throughout the year, for 6 guests and 1 medium sized dog. The former police office has now been converted into a heated boot room to de-robe after a mighty hike in the Cheviots, a scenic cycle in the countryside or a day on the beach. The generous size of the boot room also enables secure storage of equipment such as cycles during the guests' stay. There is also a hot and cold outside tap available to clean off boots and wash down your four-legged friend! The property also benefits from a large secure back garden with parking for 2 cars, accessed off The Neuk.

The historic village of Belford is situated halfway between Alnwick and Berwick Upon Tweed just off the A1 with easy access to the Northumberland National Park and the fabulous Northumbrian coastline. As a former medieval village, there are many historical buildings which tell Belford's story. A warm community spirit endures to this day. Nowadays, the village offers a number of shops and food outlets, including a farm shop selling local and regional produce, a museum, popular cafes, play parks and a range of public houses where you will find a true Northumbrian welcome.
