Visit Britain Breakfast Award


A former 18th Century Coaching Inn, Eals Lodge is now a 4 star bed & breakfast set within the Northumberland National Park on the Kielder Road, 4 miles from Kielder Water in the beautiful Tarset Valley, and overlooks the North Tyne River with wonderful views of Thorneyburn Common.

We have 3 rooms, 2 en-suite wc/shower and 1 family suite with private wc/shower on the landing. This room can also be used for walkers and cyclists. All rooms have flat screen TV/DVD, hair driers and well stocked hospitality tray. WiFi is available and there is ample parking outside the house.

Our breakfast menu, prepared by the owners, includes a wonderful Northumbrian cooked breakfast sourced from local award winning butchers, fresh eggs from our own hens, with jams and marmalades specially made in Northumberland, and all what we offer is backed up with 3 breakfast awards from VisitEngland.

We have a wonderful guest lounge to relax in after a full day in Kielder before going out for an evening meal, a short distance from Eals Lodge.

Surrounded by stunning countryside, you may want to go walking, cycling, take part in watersports or mountain biking, together with many organised events in Kielder Water & Forest Park throughout the year, like badger and red squirrel watches, dawn chorus walks, and bat nights. The Calvert Trust also organises various activities for families at Kielder.

As the Reivers Cycle route is nearby, we can cater for those doing this ride and can house 5 cyclists at any one time. We have storage for bikes and drying facilities after a wet day in the saddle. If you encounter mechanical problems or you require spares for your bike, the Bike Place in Kielder Village is there to help.

Bird watching and visiting the Bird of Prey Centre is also very popular and you may consider coming to see the Ospreys which have been coming back to Kielder to breed and raise their chicks. You can also view them on a live camera link while having tea /coffee in the Dukes Pantry tearoom in Kielder Castle.

Kielder is deemed to have England's least polluted night skies and now boasts a modern Observatory built on the Black Fell hilltop overlooking Kielder Village. The International Dark Skies Association has granted Gold Tier Dark Sky Park status to The Northumberland National Park and Kielder Water & Forest Park, making it an ideal place to go stargazing.

We are open in the run up to Christmas for families visiting Winter Wonderland, an all day event for the family.

 Or maybe you just want to get away from it all and enjoy the area.

Northumberland is steeped in history, changing hands between Scotland and England with the conflict of the Border Reivers, and is well known for its ancient Bastilles and Peles. Eals Lodge can be used as a base to explore this area, the classic homes such as Cragside and Wallington and the famous Hadrian’s Wall, which is now a World Heritage Site, are nearby.  A little further afield are the historical castles of Alnwick, Bamburgh and Lindisfarne. You can visit the coast for a day and take a memorable trip to the Farne Islands, seeing the colonies of various birds and seals. From Kielder Village you can travel over the Scottish border and visit Newcastleton or the border towns of Hawick and Jedburgh

Bill and Pauline are excellent welcoming hosts

Dorothy T,
Nothing was too much trouble for Bill and Pauline to make their guests feel at home. The rooms were very good and comfortable. The breakfasts were superb with plenty of choice as good as any large hotel.

Surprise stay at Eals Lodge

Timbo101, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
We had been booked to stay at the Black Cock Inn but due to unfortunate circumstances, this had to be changed at the very last minute, thus with 30 minutes notice we ended up at Eals Lodge. From the very start, Bill and Pauline proved to be the most hospitable of hosts, finding us somewhere for an evening meal, providing us with excellent comfortable accommodation, and finally a top class breakfast the next morning. To cap it off, I left a torch in the bedroom, and Bill was kind enough to personally return it to me going several miles out of his way to do so. I'd highly recommend staying here, not only for the great hospitality, but also for the lovely Northumberland countryside. And if, like us, you intend visiting the Kielder Observatory (itself a fantastic destination), then this B and B proves a perfect base.

Friendly welcoming hosts

Great b and b with lovely hosts who looked after us really well. A fantastic location for Kielder and the Observatory and nice pubs to eat at a short drive away. Good breakfast options and enjoyed by all of us. Thanks

The Good and The Average

cardman813, Poole, United Kingdom
Bill and Pauline were wonderful hosts at this B&B which is in a superb location to visit Kielder. Our ensuite room was average, stuck in a "time warp of the 1970's" and really needed a "lick of paint" and a fresh carpet. Bill also mentioned the TV in the room didn't work very well; it didn't. Also as the property isn't on mains water, it's fed by a spring, then the shower was not very powerful, it wasn't. Power shower enthusiasts beware. Bill said that the water in the room from the tap was not drinkable but could be boiled for hot drinks. Breakfast was very nice but I was sad to see that the preserves on both mornings had just gone out of date.

So friendly

Just want to say a massive thank you to Bill and Pauline for a superb stay at Eals Lodge, Northumberland. So welcoming, lovely room, extremely well catered for and couldn't do enough to make sure our first trip to Kielder was a memorable one. It was and we will definitely be coming back. Thanks again!
