Set within 32 acres of lush green gardens and copse, the historic Otterburn Tower is a picturesque location from which to explore the beauty and tranquillity of the Northumberland National Park that surrounds it, as well as the fun and adventure of the nearby Kielder Water, the largest man-made lake in Europe.
Originally built in the 11th century as a country retreat for the cousin of William the Conqueror, the Otterburn Tower retains an old world atmosphere both in its castle-like exterior and the antiquarian feel to the interiors, including a selection of rooms offering the vintage luxury of a four poster bed.
This particularly English style extends to the award-winning Oak Room restaurant as well, with oak panelling, fireplaces and coats of arms setting the backdrop for dishes that proudly display the chefs love for seasonal, local produce. With much of the meat sourced from the Otterburn’s owner’s farm and matured under the watchful eye of the head chef, bread baked on site and dairy procured from local suppliers, the Oak Room ensures quality control over the whole process.
Such an aesthetic and historic setting also makes for a romantic venue and The Otterburn Tower, with a license for civil ceremonies, offers a dedicated wedding planner, as well as huge experience, to make the day a memorable one. From a red carpet entrance to offering wedding photography and from a bespoke food menu to a Master of Ceremonies, Otterburn Tower Hotel ensures that all angles are covered.
