The
Experience

A super little inn lost in beautiful country, the kind you hope to chance upon. The Kershaws run it with great passion and an instinctive understanding of its traditions. The bars are wonderful. Brass beer taps glow, 100-year old photos of the local community hang on stone walls, the clock above the fire keeps perfect time. Fires burn, bowler hats and saddles pop up here and there, varnished ceilings shine. House ales are expertly kept, Timothy Taylor’s and Wylam waiting for thirsty souls. Fruit and vegetables come from the garden, while Robin’s lovely food hits the spot perfectly, perhaps twice-baked cheese soufflé, slow-roasted Northumberland lamb, brioche and marmalade bread and butter pudding; as for Sunday lunch, The Observer voted it ‘Best in the North’. Bedrooms in the old hay barn are light and airy, cute and cosy, great value for money. You’re in the Northumberland National Park – no traffic jams, not too much hurry. You can sail on the lake, cycle round it or take to the hills and walk. For £10 you can also gaze into the universe at the Kielder Observatory (best in winter). Brilliant.

Reviews

The best inn stay we have ever had. Wonderfully warm and welcoming with delicious food and comfy beds. No-one could ask for more.

Julia

Wonderful place to stay. We had the family room and it suited our needs perfectly. The food was marvellous and the service was friendly and professional in every way. A real gem of a place to stay but also great to dine at if you're passing. Will happily return.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Walter, Irene & Robin Kershaw

  • The Northumberland Dark Sky Park, the largest in Europe and 1st of its kind in England, with the Kielder Observatory just up the road. You can visit and stare into distant galaxies.
  • Check out the 27-mile Lakeside Way Trail around Kielder Water, ideal to cycle or walk. There are also several graded mountain bike trails to suit all abilities, and you can hire bikes locally.
  • There’s lots of wildlife in the area - red squirrels, otters, nesting ospreys in summer.
  • Truly a special place ... Hardian’s Wall is a World Heritage site and makes a fantastic day out for all the family.
  • Kielder Art and Architecture - the landscape around Kielder Water & Forest Park has become home to a unique collection of visual art and architecture.
