Stayed three nights b&b excellent food and very friendly a d helpful staff. There is a wide choice of food on the menu caterering for most needs. Nothing was too much problem especially when the bathroom light blew! This is also a dog friendly inn, with ideal walks from the doorstep. Plus Kielder forest and observatory are near by. Beautiful...

Visited with my 6 year old boy for two nights to go to the Winter Wonderland event and the Observatory. Check in was easy, staff really friendly and helpful, free wifi throughout which was fast and performed flawlessly, green room in the Blacksmiths cottage next door was warm, cosy and comfortable with fantastic double shower enclosure, breakfast and evening meals...

I had three very good nights at the Holly Bush while working up in the Forest - a really pleasant little B&B with great decor and excellent food in the evenings! The staff were very obliging in preparing a breakfast tray for an early start (even if 7.30 is not that early!)

We stayed 2 nights at the stargazer apartment and it was lovely. Very spacious and little touches such as a torch were a lovely thought. Incredibly peaceful and the views are amazing, can't wait to go back.

Visiting Kielder observatory with my girlfriend, after looking for somewhere convenient to stay for the night, stumbled across the Holly Bush Inn - handy location, reasonable price and good reviews. Paid £95 B&B to stay in the Green Room for the night - arrived a little later than intended which meant a quick check in and then down for dinner...

we stayed here whilst visiting Kielder observatory. Stayed in the Grey room which held three adults comfortably. Cozy room, excellent powerful shower (good after a late night/early morning) and great bar meals. Recommended!

Stayed here for a walking/Kielder Observatory weekend...small bar with a great firw was very local on the Friday night and they were hilarious...lost it several times listening to them....although good local beers would have contributed to my receptivity! 😆 Food was pretty good but not as good as the The Pheasant on the way to Kielder... Green Room is over...

Just for info re the heating - the clocks were not adjusted following power cuts and the heating on the rooms does not actually switch off until check out time. Also you can have a breakfast basket delivered to your room at 10am if you wish to have a lie in... So glad you enjoyed everything else though... Kind regards...

Recently stayed at Holly Bush Inn whilst visiting Kielder observatory. Rooms were very comfortable, bar really welcoming, food hearty and wholesome and the staff very friendly and accommodating. Only 25 mins from observatory so a perfect place to stop when visiting the area for stargazing. Will definitely return to Kielder and will stay at HollyBush inn again.

The meat dishes were OK but there was only one vegetarian starter and one main and both were mushroom based - garlic mushrooms and mushroom stroganoff and the mushroom component seemed to be the same in both dishes. Good draft bitters available.

Dave I take your comments on board re veggie options and have discussed a more varied menu with the chef. Thanks for the constructive criticism :-)

A proper little country pub with award winning accommodation. We are located in the beautiful Northumberland National Park and we have some of the DARKEST SKIES in England.
