These two lodges, each with a hot tub on the decking, offer differently styled accommodation for groups of eight. Ideal for holidays or visiting the two large wedding venues nearby in Otterburn. Leafy Run (ref W44043) is a contemporary style lodge with a hot tub, and has a peaceful decked area. Reiver’s Rest (ref UKC3402) has been completely renovated in 2018, with a private hot tub on the raised south-facing decking and backs onto the woodland in the top corner of the park, with walks from the door. With a fully renovated restaurant on site, the lodges are less than a mile from the centre of the village of Otterburn, on the very edge of the Northumberland National Park. The park is just inside the Gold Tier International Dark Sky Park, the largest in Europe, ideal for stargazers and astronomers. The village has a mill shop, and the shop/café sells local produce. A highly acclaimed wedding venue, Le Petit Château is easily accessed only a mile away and guests can enjoy staying in the lodges and having some down time after the wedding. The long wooded drive up to the park sets the scene for your break away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

A perfect base for couples or families to explore the Northumberland National Park, Kielder Forest and observatory, and the Scottish Borders. Situated 16 miles 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. A day trip to Alnwick, with its famous castle, and the Northumberland Heritage Coast, which is peppered with castles and beaches, make for fine days out. Hadrians 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 have plenty of pubs and shops. Beach 35 miles. Shop 1 mile, pub ¾ mile and restaurant on-site.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 16 guests.

Lovely and spacious, beautiful place to relax and chill with all of the family. Lovely walks around lake and burn. Hottub Lovely. Only one issue with no Internet for the 4 days we booked. We had no TV or WiFi as the TV had to have Internet connection. In this day and age Internet is essential. Tried getting in touch with owners, left messages and txt asking for them to fix but no response which was disappointing.

We had a great week here, the lodge was super clean and spacious. The kitchen was very easy to work in. With small children we are in most nights and when the weather was nice in the evenings used the decking for a drink or eating. Four double bedrooms was great and all bedrooms had storage space. We loved this lodge and would definitely recommend it our only issue was a lack of privacy when using the hot tub or sitting outside.

I think there should be wifi as we have been in other lodges on the site which has wifi, kitchen utensils need addressing as tin opener doesn't work, cabin states sleeps 8 but the dining table had 6 chairs and patio table only holds 6, couldn't use hot tub on an evening to watch the stary stars as advertised as there was no lights on hot tub as well as no lights out side was totally pitch black, due to covid we were restricted to the lodge but would be nice to have a little store near lodge, also we found instructions for cooker on day of leaving wish we knew where it was when we arrived as took a long time to realise how to work it properly but apart from this we had a lovely time and enjoyed our stay and the log cabin is beautiful would return

We had a lovely weekend. Nice and relaxing. Was very clean 🙂 the only thing that wasn’t good was the showers.. for a lodge that sleeps 8 and having two bathrooms where only one shower can be ran at the same time unless you want a cold shower. When one shower was on it have low pressure to the other. Other than that it was a perfect weekend.

We enjoyed our family break the cabin was spacious and reasonably well equipped an information book would of been useful for using the cooker hob microwave etc the hot tub and decking was lovely and we used it a lot The surroundings were quiet and there are nice walks round the grounds.if you enjoy getting away from it all I would recommend Leafy Run at Otterburn

Fantastic week we would all highly recommend the lodge. Thank you Mandy (housekeeper) for all your help ~ Booked in for next year. Celia ~ Phil & family

We had an excellent stay at Leafy Run. The lodge was well equipped, we were actually surprised at how much there was to offer. The hot tub was amazing, we practically lived in it! When we arrived, there was ice already in the freezer; tea, coffee and sugar provided and even some ice creams which was a lovely touch. As a group of 7, the lodge was the perfect size and the local area was sound. Only downfall was the local pub closed early a couple of nights which was disappointing but understandable in these times. We are 100% looking at booking again for next year and recommend to families/groups of friends/anyone!!

We had a fantastic time with our family !! The pricing for off peak was very good and the rooms and beds were very comfortable ! The kitchen is very well equipped and ideal for a family with everything you could possibly need. We travelled to Kielder, Rothbury and Haltwhistle.. so as long as you have a car it’s easy to get around, the restaurant on site was fantastic and the staff are absolutely brilliant ! We prevailed tea and breakfast and both were high quality and very good value for money . The log cabin itself is very spacious and we found the decking area so relaxing especially with a little one as it is gated and they couldn’t escape ! I would definitely recommend Leafy run for a family of 6+ . 🙂 x

We have had a lovely stay. Came for a nearby wedding but happy to have extended our stay for the week. Good facilities and location. Quiet peaceful stay able to visit many local places.

Just come back from a amazing holiday with the family , nice if you enjoy wilderness and exploring, lots of shooting stars to see on a clear night to enjoy while sitting in hot tub

Chelsea 22/08/2021

Leafy Run is brilliant It is massive with everything you need for a chilled holiday. You do need a car as it is remote but perfect if you just want to put your feet up and enjoy the hot tub which was spotless and checked every day. There is a restaurant 2 mins walk away but book if you want to get in. The walks in the woods around the cabin are perfect if you have dogs. The only problem we had was blocked shower drain in one bathroom but just used the other one. Will be going back.
