Your ideal choice for luxury holiday cottages near Kielder

The Cottages

Tarset Holiday Cottages are situated on a family farm in the beautiful Northumbrian countryside. The cottages are near enough to local towns and villages to ensure you have all of your home comforts but far enough away from the buzz of city life to allow you to recharge your batteries. 

The Stable and The Byres have both been refurbished to provide luxury country living for your ideal rural retreat.

The cottages benefit from their front doors opening onto paved cottage courtyards perfect for those long, lazy summer evenings. Being located in the Northumberland Dark Sky Park you will be treated to some of the most wonderful star gazing in Europe (weather permitting of course!)

To ensure our cottages are maintained to a high standard we operate a strict No Smoking policy.

Price Range: £320 to £1020 per week (Saturday to Saturday). Please click “Book Online” for more information about pricing and availability or contact us (01434) 240345 or email at for more tailored requests. Price includes all bedding, towels and central heating.

Check in details: To make sure that the Cottages are ready for guests’ arrival, check-in time is after 3pm and we ask that guests are ready to depart by 10am on their last day.

It is a lovely redeveloped stable ideally based near Kielder and in good proximity to the surrounding towns/villages.
The owners are very welcoming, giving you a treat on arrival.
If you have any type of query they are prepared to help as much as they can.
The cottage is clean, tidy and child friendly with all the amenities you require.
We will certainly be returning in the near future!”
