Old Kielder Castle Cottage
2 bedrooms, sleeps 4

This former stable is the perfect retreat for families and couples looking to explore the abundance of attractions close by.

Old Kielder Castle Cottage lies in the prettiest part of the village of Kielder, directly opposite the castle, which can be admired from the large enclosed garden. Visitors to Kielder village and surrounding area are spoilt for choice, as the area is a paradise for mountain bikers, cyclists, walkers, fishermen and water enthusiasts. It is ideally located for stargazers and photographers, as this semi-detached holiday cottage is close to the Kielder Observatory. The castle houses a visitor centre, with a licensed café featuring a webcam to capture the ospreys and wildlife, and also holds varied exhibitions throughout the seasons. The cottage has been sympathetically restored from a 1775 stable for the castle, into a contemporary cottage, which is ideal for couples or small families.

Relax in the large bath after a day’s cycling or walking, or curl up on the comfy sofa and watch a film in front of the cosy wood burner. The rear area has a pretty tiered patio area for extra privacy to relax and unwind. The open beams, underfloor heated stone floors and wood burner all help to retain the character of the cottage. Kielder is set in the Gold Tier International Dark Sky Park, the largest expanse of dark sky in Europe, perfect for astronomers. The surrounding parks all have something to offer visitors. There is a hop on/off ferry which takes you all around the water to admire the stunning scenery with a visitor centre, bird of prey centre and bar with picnic tables along the front.

The local pub and licensed café are only a short walk away, which means you can leave your car behind and enjoy a quiet drink with friends. This property is within a great location for exploring the abundance of visitor attractions in what is reputedly the friendliest and least inhabited county in England. Hadrian’s Wall and the Northumberland Heritage Coast (Alnwick Castle only 50 miles) make great days out and are easily drivable. The Kielder Winter Wonderland from mid-November to Christmas is a fantastic experience for families of all ages (must pre book). Marathons and bike runs are held throughout the year, making the cottage a welcoming base for your stay in Kielder. Shop ¼ mile, pub 300 yards, café 200 yard
