Description

Perfect for couples and oozing with character, dating back to the 1600’s, this former stable and bottle store was an integral part of history for The Blackcock Inn. The inn and cottage are steeped in history and boast pictures proudly showing the time Lawrence of Arabia stayed for two weeks. Situated in the centre of the very pretty little village of Falstone, Honeysuckle Cottage is set within the grounds of the quiet village pub, ideal for those wishing to eat next door and chat to the very friendly owners and locals. The cottage is a comfortable and welcoming base for couples from which to explore this stunning part of the county, complete with a cosy multi-fuel burner for those evenings when you wish to relax and unwind.
Falstone village is only a mile from the start of Kielder Water, located in the International Dark Sky National Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is a popular destination for amateur and professional star gazers and photographers. Kielder Observatory is only a few miles along the water, but be sure to check before hand as bookings are usually required (online). Honeysuckle Cottage is a great base for relaxing for couples, and there is no need to cook when the friendly owner’s pub is next door serving good home cooked food. The whole of the Northumberland National Park is perfect for those who enjoy adventure on the water, cycling, fishing or walking, and there are various visitor centres dotted along the water where you can stop for coffee or drinks and sit on the picnic tables outside. There is a popular bird of prey centre, and even a swimming pool and spa all open to the public.
The small town of Bellingham is 9 miles away and offers a selection of cafés, a few pubs and small shops. The historic town of Hexham is approximately 25 miles away, with Hexham Abbey, historic buildings and shops. Northumberland wouldn’t be the same without a day trip over to the glorious Heritage Coastline, another Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with miles of golden sandy beaches peppered with historic castles and friendly villages. Not as far as you may think, Alnwick Castle is only 50 miles away, where you can explore the cobbled streets and pop into the castle where the Duke of Northumberland still resides and which was used as a film location for Harry Potter. Northumberland is reputedly the friendliest county in England, and this base will allow you the freedom to travel each day to different locations should you wish. However, there is plenty to see and do should you wish to stay within the National Park. Shop 9 miles, pub serving food 25 yards.

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.
