Description

With a hot tub and indoor swimming pool situated in the adjacent farmhouse garden, and magnificent views over the Northumberland National Park, this spacious, eco-friendly, semi-detached converted barn was renovated in 2018 with guests comfort at heart. Each of the bedrooms have their own Smart TV, there is a large, cosy multi-fuel burner in the living room and fantastic views, you won’t want to leave. The wet room even has the added benefit of a LED heated mirror. However, when you do venture out, there is easy access to main roads to reach Bellingham, only a mile away, with a choice of pubs, cafés, golf course and local amenities. The owner can even arrange private fishing for two people on family land. Set on a working beef and sheep farm, the owner’s will be delighted to show you the lambs. Curlew Cottage is a lovely place to stay for families and couples who want something a little bit different, with the added luxury of a hot tub and lovely pool with changing facilities.

There are some nice walks from the door; the Pennine Way runs through the farm itself and Hareshaw Linn Waterfall is nearby. The highly acclaimed International Dark Sky Park, the largest in Europe, is perfect for stargazers and even amateur photographers. Visit the observatory (bookings required) for a chance to spot the Northern Lights. Kielder itself is ideal for cyclists, walkers and those who enjoy the water, and there are visitor centres, a bird of prey centre and plenty of picnic areas. This is a great base for Kielder Winter Wonderland in winter and the Kielder Marathon.

Visit Hexham Abbey, only 20 miles away, which is situated in the lovely historic town of Hexham, where a trip over to the Roman Hadrian’s Wall visiting The Sill National Landscape Discovery Centre should be enjoyed. Don’t rule out a trip over to the Northumbrian Heritage Coast, around 50 miles, which stretches for miles with golden beaches and peppered with castles and friendly villages. The Scottish Border at Carter Bar is only 17 miles away, so you can even visit Scotland on your stay here. Curlew Cottage is a great location from which to explore the diversity of this friendly and welcoming county, and no better welcome awaits you than from the friendly owner who respects your privacy but is on hand should you wish to see them. Shop, pubs and restaurant 1 mile.

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.
