Alnwick

Otterburn is a small village with a big history and is well worth a visit. On the outskirts of the village you'll find the site of the famous Battle of Otterburn in 1388 when the English army suffered a bloody defeat by the Scots led by the Earl of Douglas.

And Otterburn saw plenty of action during the days of the Border Reivers when rival gangs terrorised the local population. Today things are much quieter and you'll find a small, but vibrant community at the heart of the picturesque Redesdale Valley. Make the most of your stay in an Otterburn Self Catering property.

Otterburn definitely has a sense of its own past, one of its chief attractions is Otterburn Mill which contains a museum outlining the history of weaving and wool milling in the area.

The Otterburn Rug was endorsed by the Royal Family, and our present Queen was once kept warm in her pram by one. Otterburn Mill also includes a cafe, an outdoor clothing store and a Tourist Information Centre.

Otterburn itself has a selection of local shops and pubs and there is a great selection of accommodation including Otterburn Hotels, B&Bs and cottages.
