The Old Post Office Cottage
3 bedrooms, sleeps 5

Whether it be outdoor activities or a relaxing break away, this former post office, dating back to the 1960s, ensures the perfect location.

Set in the heart of Kielder village, The Old Post Office was the original post office set up in the living room in the 1960s. This well-located, semi-detached holiday property offers a comfortable base from which to explore this stunning part of the county. With a wood burner in the living room and a larger multi-fuel burner in the kitchen/dining room, the property provides a warm welcome at any time of the year. The pebbled rear garden is enclosed and makes an ideal setting for relaxing after a day out. Kielder is set in the Gold Tier International Dark Sky Park, the largest in Europe and ideal for stargazers and photographers, with the Kielder Observatory just 3 miles away and a short walk to Kielder Castle and Water.

The Old Post Office couldn’t be in a better location for couples, families and those looking to relax. Perfect for outdoor enthusiasts too, there is cycling, walking, sailing and fishing available locally. Nearby Leaplish Waterside Park has a ferry that takes you around the water to admire the stunning scenery, and there is also a visitor centre, bird of prey centre and bar with picnic tables along the front, as well as a swimming pool and spa open to the public.

Northumberland is reputedly the friendliest county in England and the charming villages spread throughout are waiting to be explored. Hadrian’s Wall or the Northumberland Heritage Coast, with Alnwick Castle only 50 miles away, make for a great day out. Watch out for the Kielder Winter Wonderland (booking essential), a fantastic experience for families during December and a perfect time for stargazing and soaking up the dark sky experience for all the family.
