Excellent place to stay when visiting Kielder Observatory!

We had booked a Late Night Dark Skies event at the Kielder Observatory as a present for my husband's 60th birthday and one of the suggested places to stay nearby was the Pheasant Inn. We'd booked a single room and a double as there were three of us. On arrival we were shown to the Garden Cottage, which is actually a two bedroom self-catering cottage which is sometimes used for bed and breakfast purposes. It had been newly refurbished in 2016 and was exactly what we wanted. Tea/coffee facilities in the ensuite bedrooms, large bath sheets and televisions in each room, plus decent lighting in the bedrooms enabling you to read in bed without the need to put the room light on, We ate in the Inn before going to the Observatory. Food was plentiful and excellent value. My friend and I had the Sea Bass with lime and red Thai butter and my husband the Steak and Kidney pie. I followed this with a great blackcurrant sorbet and my husband the crumble with custard. The breakfast the following morning was excellent with cereals, fresh fruit, and a choice of cooked breakfast. It was a excellent place to stay and eat and I can highly recommend it. If we visit the Observatory again we will definitely stay here.

My wife and I stumbled upon the Pheasant Inn during our holiday in Northumberland. We were out for a drive around lunchtime on Sunday and, as hunger struck, we were fortunate to drive past the inn. As it looked inviting, we turned the car around and went in. Although it was Sunday and it was obvious that it was a popular place with both locals and tourists, we were just just early enough to get a table. It's a lovely warm place and part of that was the welcome from the staff. We both ordered the lamb roast and it was outstanding. Although we were quite full, we couldn't resist the summer fruit crumble, which was also first rate. If we ever have the good fortune to visit Northumberland again, you can be sure we'll make an advance reservation at the Pheasant Inn.

My husband and I stayed here just for one night on our Wedding Anniversary. This hotel was absolutely brilliant. The food, the ambience, the rooms and facilities were all excellent. No adverse comments whatsoever. Only wished we had stayed longer - we will next time.
A lovely spot

We felt like being in the middle of nowhere. But this is where we wanted to be and The Pheasant Inn is such a nice hotel. We stayed on the ground floor looking into the beautiful garden right in front our huge window. The bed was comfy and we had a really good sleep. In the evening we dined in. People who haven't reserve a table in advance, have little chance to get one. As we were hotel guests we had one anyway. The Food was delicious, we really loved it. Even our breakfast was nice. The staff was great too. We really liked our stay there. Unfortunately did we get to hear too late of a star gazer tour a short drive away, so there was no place available. Therefore we drove a little around to find a great spot to see some stars and hopefully the northern lights. Well, the website show people places within a village and there is plenty of light, so almost impossible to make out stars. But then we took a road to the nearby lake and there it was almost pretty dark. We could see the milky way, which was fantastic. Just to let you know, this is one of the darkest spot in the northern hemisphere to be able to see northern lights nice and clear. Good luck with that and enjoy your stay. :)
Lovely relaxing stay
Stayed here for one night. We had a lovely room with big comfy bed and great views over the countryside. Beautifully clean and fresh. We were made very welcome by friendly owners and staff throughout our stay. We had dinner here and the food was excellent. Lovely breakfast also. Would highly recommend!
