With a private hot tub on the veranda, this lodge is perfect for enjoying a relaxing holiday within an International Dark Sky Park.

The Woodside Lodge, with its private hot tub for six guests, is perfect for holidays or visiting the two large wedding venues nearby in Otterburn. With a restaurant on-site, this detached lodge is less than a mile from the centre of the village of Otterburn, on the very edge of the Northumberland National Park. Built on one level, there is four steps up to the raised veranda, which catches the sun all day long so perfect for those relaxing moments. The Woodside Lodge is set amongst other lodges on a peaceful park just inside the Gold Tier International Dark Sky Park, the largest in Europe, so is perfect for stargazers and astronomers.

This is a perfect base for couples or families wanting to explore the Northumberland National Park, Kielder Forest and observatory, and the Borders. Situated 16 miles away from the Border Counties, outdoor enthusiasts will love this location, which is a favourite with walkers and adventure seekers. Bellingham is close by and has a choice of tea rooms, pubs and village shops, or take a day trip to Alnwick, with its famous castle. The Northumberland Heritage Coast is peppered with castles and beaches, and makes a fine day out. Hadrian’s Wall is only a few miles away and is steeped in history, with Roman forts and museums along the way. Hexham and Rothbury are easily accessible, and both have plenty of pubs and shops.

    Excellent property very clean and well equipped. Location is very peaceful and close to Hadrian’s wall and Keilder forest but lacks local amenities. Would recommend and return again.

    The cottage was lovely and we were very pleased. Our only disappointment was that the beds were just standard doubles and the mattresses were uncomfortable. Good mattress toopees could be helpful. Larger bath towels would be good too. There were just 3 wine glasses and a mixing bowl of some kind would be helpful. However, it didn’t In any way spoil our enjoyment. Thank you

    Stayed here with our 10 month old! High chair ready when we got there ! And a travel cot ! Unfortunately we had squeezed ours into the car as it didnt say one was available when booking. Site should be updated. The lodge was lovely clean and well equipped! Chocolates and small bottle of wine waiting ! We had a lovely time had already recommended to our friends and will definitely stay again! Thank you

    Location was good for us as we were out every day & had a family wedding to attend in Hexham. However there were no amenities onsite & lots of building work to new lodges. Lake advertised was not as expected. Hot tub was not let down prior to our visit or that clean throughout our stay. Toilet seat kept coming off in main bathroom, I fixed it. Bin was broken in kitchen & shower head in ensuite was split so couldn't use without water spraying over top of shower screen & soaking everything. Did contact owners to inform them there were no spare keys as described in welcome pack & that bin was already broken. Didn't bother them with other stuff in the end as we were out but not the point. Unsure it was worth nearly a grand for the week?

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your review. We’re really disappointed to read your feedback, ensuring your stay with us is a comfortable one; we’d have liked the opportunity to put things right for you. We understand our location won’t suit everyone but being remote is part of Otterburn’s charm. Thanks again for your feedback. The Woodside Lodge.

    The lodge was spacious, clean, modern and had everything we needed. The kids loved the space inside and out. The Hot Tub was great and was tended to each morning. We will be back.....

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your review and we’re glad you all enjoyed it, especially the little ones. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. The Woodside Lodge.
