Visited with my sons on a short family walking holiday to Kielder and called in for dinner. Lovely welcome from staff and other customers, mostly locals. Lovely open fire, homely, immediately felt at ease. Smallish menu, most of meals home made to order, typical pub grub but very well done, sentiments echoed by other diners. Good range of drinks, especially...

The room wasn't perfect, but it was comfortable and clean. The pub and the location are perfect. Good food, welcoming staff, and a good pint. A place we'd like to return to. Nearby Kielder Forest is definitely worth a visit.

Stayed 4 nights mainly to visit Kielder observatory. Lovely local pub that serves really good pub grub. Breakfast is superb. The rooms are lovely - comfy beds (I have bad back so it's important to me) and the locals are brilliant and so friendly. Staff so friendly and helpful as well. About as close as you can get to Kielder...

The Holly Bush Inn is about a 20 minute drive from Kielder Observatory, pretty much the same road all the way there too. As such, it's in a perfect location for stargazers and visitors to Kielder Water. The Inn itself had a crackling fire in the bar, with a nice mix of locals and tourists chatting away - a nice...

We stayed here on the 20th of December as we were visiting Kielder Observatory. Overall I was a little underwhelmed with The Holly Bush Inn. The building itself was full of character but unfortunately the decor didn't really feel in keeping with the building (this is personal preference I know). There was a large bottle of soap in the bathroom...

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!)

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. We are very close to Kielder Water and Observatory, Hadrian's Wall, Alnwick Gardens and the Coast. There are some beautiful walks that start from the pub including an ancient BASTLE trail. We have 2 family rooms and also welcome well behaved dogs. Whether you are coming to the area to walk, cycle, star gaze or just relax we can assure you of a very warm welcome. ... more   less
