  • "Wonderful accommodation, everything you could need or want for the perfect break."

    The welcome pack was beyond anything I have seen before, and the dining area was arranged perfectly for our first meal. We'll placed property for visiting a number of attractions or take walks from the cottage itself. Lovely and quiet, a great place to relax, unwind and enjoy the countryside and all that nature itself provides.

  • "The property is just stunning the pictures are completely accurate."

    The sheer size and space of the cottage is amazing and the owners go the extra mile to make your stay even better. I’ve never had a welcome pack with so many items in it and the extra care to provide gluten free for us was extremely thoughtful. The location is just wonderful on a clear night you can just look at the stars so clearly and the scenery during the day is beautiful. We used it as a base for our daily outings and it was a pleasure coming back to spend our evenings there. Cannot recommend this cottage enough it will not disappoint

  • "This cottage/bungalow is the most fabulous place we have stayed."

    The accommodation is second to none, welcome food package on arrival, everything you need to start an amazing holiday break. Great for just relaxing, watching the wildlife, loads of great walks, stunning scenery and places of interest a short drive away if you start to miss the shops. The owners Julie & Steve are so lovely, friendly and helpful. This was perfect for my elderly father to get around with his walker, so peaceful and relaxing. Can’t wait to book again.

  • "This cottage was by far the best one we have stayed in."

    It was spacious, immaculate and very comfortable. The owners left a very generous welcome pack which we enjoyed and every little detail had been thought of to make our stay very enjoyable. There are some beautiful villages and quaint places to visit and the countryside was breathtaking and the roads extremely quiet especially in the evening. We would definitely visit this area of the UK again some time and stay at Rede River Cottage without any question.

  • "Rede River Cottage is in a beautiful location with lovely long views and is completely peaceful and quiet."

    We watched the hares in the field behind us and shared morning coffee with oyster catchers on their way to the coast. The cottage is luxuriously furnished and has lots of space to move around, very useful with small children. It is well placed to visit Hadrian's Wall, a variety of National Trust places and the Angel of the North. Our hosts were friendly and left a very generous welcome pack which made us feel at home straight away. We would love to return in the Dark Skye Season.

  • "Rede River Cottage was a warm, extremely spacious and well equipped quality, ground floor cottage with the most generous welcome pack we have ever come across!"

    Julia was so friendly, helpful and welcoming, and the eggs supplied from their own hens on the farm were delicious! It was a peaceful base, enjoying dark skies, just a few miles from the small town of Bellingham and its fabulous, friendly Carriages Tearoom, and close to Otterburn with its convenience store and Otterburn Mill. The main purpose of our visit was for the 'Astrophotography' and 'Marvellous Milky Way' evenings at The Kielder Observatory about 30 miles from the property. This is a great place to visit even when it's cloudy like it was for us...luckily by the time we returned late to the cottage we had clear skies to see the stars. The enthusiastic and experienced young staff keep you well entertained and educated even when it is cloudy. Hexham was a nice town to visit with a large and impressive Abbey with 'Big Story' display and its own nice tearoom. Roman sites along Hadrian's Wall are close by. The cottage isn't far from the Scottish border and small, lovely villages like Rothbury. Kielder Water is great for exploring its footpaths in the forest, visiting the skewed viaduct on the dismantled railway line near Kielder village, and for watching the bird life in the forest and on the reservoir from the hides there. On this visit we didn't go to the spectacular Northumberland coast so familiar to us, or to Newcastle, but these can be highly recommended to new visitors to the area. A highly satisfying visit to Rede River Cottage and Kielder.

    The photos don’t do justice to the super spacious, and spotlessly clean, accommodation which is fitted out to very high standard and is a credit to the owners. It had everything our family of 6 adults needed for a relaxing stay, including a super welcome pack! There are walks aplenty on the doorstep and numerous places to visit within a short drive. I can’t recommend Rede River Cottage highly enough, if you stay here you won’t be disappointed!

  • "The photos for Rede river cottage don't do it justice."

    The bedrooms and bathrooms were so spacious as well as the lounge and kitchen. Some places say that they are for six adults and come up a bit short. Not Rede River Cottage, it has plenty of space. The welcome pack that is provided is brilliant. Enough for your first breakfast and then some. A large fruit bowl, cereals and a nice bottle of prosecco. A lovely surprise. A lamp in the lounge would make a difference, rather than having the main lights on, plus a larger frying pan for the kitchen. Very minor things to bring up as we had a fantastic stay and we are looking to return early next year. Thanks very much Julia.

    Exceptional property done to the highest standards with every amenity you could ask for in a self catering cottage. A real gem! Peaceful rural location in the midst of glorious country side and many attractions within a short drive. For a change of pace Newcastle City is an hour away as is the Northumberland coast with its many attractions. What ever the weather the Kielder Forest makes for a good day out, make sure to visit the Birds of Prey Center and pre-book a special experience with them. We will certainly recommend this cottage to family and friends.
