Where you’ll be

Ridsdale, Northumberland, United Kingdom

Ridsdale is a small friendly community with a local pub, but please bear in mind it's a remote rural village! The nearest shop is in the next village, West Woodburn (2 miles). Otherwise, head for Bellingham (6 miles), where you'll find a large Co-Op, plus newsagent, post office, bank, petrol station, chemist, butcher, baker, greengrocers, hardware store, Chinese takeaway and several pubs. There's also a country house hotel, offering bar meals, great dining, plus a swimming pool open to non-residents. Bellingham also has a surgery and library, as well as craft shops, an interesting Heritage Centre with tea room, and an 18-hole golf course (day visitors welcome). What's more, Ridsdale and Bellingham are based in the North Tyne Valley, close to Kielder Water. This whole area has been awarded 'European Dark Sky' status and there are two excellent observatories within about 15 miles of the cottage, perfect for star-gazing!

Hello! Within the last 15 years, I've had the pleasure of working for Northumberland Tourist Board, Northumberland National Park and The National Trust (at Wallington and Housesteads Fort, Hadrian's Wall). It means I've helped many people get to know this amazing county. I'm always happy to advise on how to get the most from your time here on holiday, with tips on attractions, routes, travel times, opening hours and facilities. I love sharing my knowledge of the North East's most stunning 'hidden gem' and, with so much to explore and enjoy, I can guarantee you'll soon be planning a return trip! I look forward to welcoming you to Northumberland and hope you'll enjoy staying in one of my two country cottages ('The Old Schoolhouse' at Ridsdale & 'Whistle Stop' at Redesmouth).
