Description

Set in the heart of the historic village of Elsdon, within the Northumberland National Park, this unique and beautifully presented cottage adjoins a public house and overlooks the village green: rumoured to be one of the largest in England, with its 13th-century church and 15th-century pele tower, as well as a Norman motte and bailey fortification. This is a wonderful touring area with the Borders, Northumberland coast, Kielder Water and Hadrian’s Wall all within easy reach, as well as Alnwick gardens and several other NT properties.

About the local area

Northumberland's western edges contain some of its most spectacular destinations, and the Kielder and Redesdale region is no exception. While the countryside is remote, and all the more beautiful for that, there is a wealth of activities on offer for everyone.

Kielder Water & Forest Park is the site of Northern Europe's largest man-made lake. There are also acres of forest to explore. Purpose-built walking trails create perfect forest walks to see a wide range of rare wildlife including the native red squirrels, deer, otters and badgers.

Dedicated mountain bike tracks including a bike skills area scatter the area. Water sports enthusiasts can take to Kielder Water from Easter to October and the lake offers a great challenge to keen trout anglers between March and October.

However if a relaxing stroll is more your thing, you can strike out on your own and explore Wild Redesdale, a great place just to enjoy nature in its most natural form, following in the footsteps of the Romans while hearing the call of Moorland birds.

Kielder is also an ideally placed for exploring the rest of Northumberland, Cumbria, Hadrian's Wall Country and the Scottish Borders.
