Otterstone Cottage, Kielder Water

perfect loacation for Winter wonderlandOtterstone Cottage

This lovely, spacious, refurbished 200 year-old stone cottage is in a truly beautiful location, with stunning views over Kielder Water.

It is an ideal base for fishing, walking, cycling, great roads for motor bikes, a favourite area with star gazers (read about star-gazing at Otterstone here) - due to the lack of street lighting.

There are two double bedrooms and can accommodate up to four.

There are excellent walks on the doorstep round the reservoir and fishing, woodlands trails, cycling, a swimming pool and water sports are all within the immediate vicinity.

There is an abundance of wildlife including Roe Deer and red squirrels. There is also a Birds of Prey Centre nearby.
