Description


This delightful country holiday home, attached to the owner’s house, has extensive gardens, woodland and panoramic views across the Rede Valley. The property is located on the edge of the National Park, in an AONB, and only 30 minutes from Kielder Water, a north east tourist attraction, and only a few miles from Hadrian’s Wall. Otterburn, once the site of the famous 1388 victory of the Scots over the English, nestles close to the banks of the River Rede between the hills and the moors overlooking the North Tyne Valley. With pretty walks and cycle routes from the door, as well as local fishing, horse riding, golf and a pub nearby, this is a superb location for a relaxing holiday at any time of the year. The village was once the home of a busy weaving industry and houses Otterburn Mill, marking the village’s historic past and is a great tourist stop off for afternoon tea. Easy access to the Northumberland coast, with golden beaches and an outstanding coastline peppered with castles and friendly locals. Shops and pubs 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.
