Very pleasant & clean cottage. The owners were very friendly and welcoming, make sure you take directions as there is no wifi so had to stop at the mill shop in Otterburn! Even through Otterburn is remote, nearest supermarket is 23 miles away in Hexham there is lots to do and see in Northumberland especially if you are National Trust members. We had a very good holiday and would recommend staying in Otterburn again.

Starry Nights

Had a great 3 nights at Drover's Rest. Ideally located in the Dark Sky area of Northumberland and close to Kielder Forest for star gazing and going to visits to Kielder Forest and Castle. Cottage was warm and cozy with all the necessary equipment required for a weekend away. Owners live in the house next door and are friendly and helpful. Would recommend this cottage. Lovely location and still close to all the things you may want to visit, pubs, castles, lakes, countryside. Lynne and Allan

I would love to go again and I intend to go again in the autumn.

The cottage was lovely, clean and well appointed. there were flowers and a packet of biscuits waiting for us on our arrival. The heating system was excellent. The hosts were very friendly and left you to do your own thing but were very approachable for help and advice. Although the fridge in the cottage has a small freezer the hosts were very willing to share their large freezer with you. The surrounding area was the beautiful Northumbrian countryside. Less than 20 miles to the seaside and many places of interest easily accessible. The local pub (1 Mile approx. away) does excellent food and drink. The local village shop (3 mile approx. away) is well stocked and offers a dining area offering cooked food etc. There is an Otterburn Mill outlet selling clothing and gifts is in the village also offering snack food. We loved the peace and tranquillity of the area and the friendliness of the residents and would recommend a visit.

An excellent country cottage!

Drovers Rest was a lovely place to spend our week in the country. The cottage was spacious, well equipped and set in beautiful surroundings, close to many places of interest. The owners were lovely and nothing was too much trouble for them. We do aim to holiday there again in the future!
