About the location


Bellingham 7 miles; Alnwick 29 miles.

The delightful village of 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 moors overlooking the North Tyne Valley. It offers excellent walking opportunities and is on a variety of popular routes for cyclists. Hadrian's Wall and the beautiful Kielder Forest and Waters are close by, providing fantastic fishing, horse riding and nature watching, amidst superb, tranquil countryside. Otterburn is the former home of a busy weaving industry, and the world famous Otterburn Mill marks the village's historic past. Nearby Bellingham, built predominantly from local stone and slate, houses a handful of pubs, shops and tea rooms and a highly regarded 18 hole golf course. Visit the nearby, majestic, stately homes of Wallington Hall and Cragside, or the historic market town of Alnwick, with its stunning castle and gardens, a mere 40 minute drive. Otterburn is a superb location for a relaxing holiday, any time of year.

Rural location, larger than it looked on the website. Property spotlessly clean and warm, bedrooms comfortable, garden large, great leaflets providing info on local attractions and the owner was friendly and very helpful. Great location for touring area, 14 miles from Kielder Forest and reservoir. Wonderful towns, very quaint with friendly local shops. Great historic locations within easy driving access.

Miss Cawkwell, Goole, February 2014

Lovely cottage with extra welcoming touches and the owner was very friendly and helpful. Particularly liked the diary which visitors filled in and which gave us ideas on where to visit and good places to eat. We had a quiet and relaxing holiday and some great meals at the local pub.

Mr Ridden, Bury St. Edmunds, August 2013

The cottage and surrounding is restful, and a home away from home. I have no problem in recommending Drover's Rest to anyone, we will be going back!

Mrs Downie, Edinburgh, July 2013

Drovers Rest was in a good location for exploring the area. The house had plenty of room for four people and was well equipped. The property and garden was well maintained and the area was nice and quiet, with the nearest shops only being a short drive away. We would recommended the Drovers Rest to anyone as good value accommodation.
