Situated in the heart of Northumberland National Park, Otterburn Castle Hotel makes an excellent base to explore the natural wonders of England’s North East.
An open log fireplace, oak paneling, and leaded windows help set the atmosphere of another era. There’s a bit of an old-fashioned ambience to the hotel, which gives it its charm and character.
Comfy guest rooms have all the modern conveniences, and if you want something special, opt for the Library Room, with its four-poster bed and bookcases lining the wall.
Surrounded by 32 acres of lawns and woodland, the hotel grounds are adjacent to the village of Otterburn.
The hotel’s restaurant, the Oak Room, has won a number of awards, priding itself on using fresh, local produce, meat, and seasonal fresh trout and salmon from the nearby Rede River.
Great location in Northumberland National Park
