Set in a couple of old railway carriages in the former railway station in Bellingham, this is a real find! Proper home made cakes, good bread and lovely staff- perfect!

My husband and I stopped off here while visiting Bellingham. Lovely bacon sandwich and a cup of tea. Definitely recommend stopping off here for a cuppa

For train lovers everywhere

Just the place to clamber into on a cold December day after a lovely walk up the gorge. Open every day, 11am to 4.30pm, I think, teas, coffees, home cooked cakes, snacks, sandwiches etc. Friendly staff, warm, comfortable but quite expensive for what it is foodwise, very atmospheric, situated in a couple of old railway carriages in the station yard. You almost expect the train to start moving an you certainly hear "chuff, chuff, chuff" if you venture past the toilet(yes, you are allowed to use it whilst the train is stationary!) and take a look at the exhibition on the Wannie Line, Redesmouth Junction etc in the farthermost coach. Sadly, I don't think it has an alcohol licence but don't let that put you off. Wheelchair accessible.

A great find

Called into Bellingham before heading up to the Kielder observatory later that day. Carriages is a delightful place to sit with a good selection of snacks and meals (all made on board). I had a very tasty tomato and lentil soup with a ham and coleslaw sandwich. The food was delicious and freshly made and plenty of it. Would definitely recommend you pop in there if you're in the area.
