    Set in the heart of Kielder village, The Old Post Office was the original post office set up in the living room in the 1960s. This well-located, semi-detached holiday property offers a comfortable base from which to explore this stunning part of the county. With a wood burner in the living room and a larger multi-fuel burner in the kitchen/dining room, the property provides a warm welcome at any time of the year. The pebbled rear garden is enclosed and makes an ideal setting for relaxing after a day out. Kielder is set in the Gold Tier International Dark Sky Park, the largest in Europe and ideal for stargazers and photographers, with the Kielder Observatory just 3 miles away and a short walk to Kielder Castle and Water. The Old Post Office couldn’t be in a better location for couples, families and those looking to relax. Perfect for outdoor enthusiasts too, there is cycling, walking, sailing and fishing available locally. Nearby Leaplish Waterside Park has a ferry that takes you around the water to admire the stunning scenery, and there is also a visitor centre, bird of prey centre and bar with picnic tables along the front, as well as a swimming pool and spa open to the public. Northumberland is reputedly the friendliest county in England and the charming villages spread throughout are waiting to be explored. Hadrian’s Wall or the Northumberland Heritage Coast, with Alnwick Castle only 50 miles away, make for a great day out. Watch out for the Kielder Winter Wonderland (booking essential), a fantastic experience for families during December and a perfect time for stargazing and soaking up the dark sky experience for all the family. Shop 300 yards, pub and restaurant 400 yards.

    "The location of the old post office is the only positive about this place. When we arrived we spent the first couple of hours cleaning as it was really dirty( fridge had black hand prints all over the outside and the inside wasn’t much better, bathroom was full of hair, I was on my hands and knees washing the floor, under the beds was full of dust... I could go on and on).i did go the the owners house and complain, she came down and stripped the beds and apologised. She left money behind the local bar for us. There was no WiFi code. Sofas are the most uncomfortable I have ever sat on and smelled. I’m sorry but I couldn’t recommend this place at all"

    "Lovely, well equipped cottage. Local contacts happy to help with our little queries and had the fire lit for our arrival which was great.Sofas are a bit uncomfortable."

    "House needs an update. Oven didn't work. Sofa needs replacing."

    "Positives;The property was a decent size for the 3 of us and well situated in the village – parking directly outside. Nice touch having coal burning fires with kindling/coal supplied by the owners. Big screen TV for those rainy days. Good sized dining table and kitchen for cooking – not many options for eating out in Kielder. Quiet neighbourhood. Views of the hills from the bedroom window. Good idea to have wooden floors throughout, especially when allowing pets.Negatives;Cleanliness – the owners should employ another cleaner! We didn’t much like having to clean the fridge, worktops and floors on our arrival. The worst by far was the living room sofa’s which should be replaced. We put duvets over them to act as covers due to the smell. Some of the double glazed windows are blown but no big deal when compared to the above points. Signs of grout mould and general wear in the upstairs bathroom. Master bedroom bed is creaky and mattress is past its best. Other rooms OK.Conclusion;We were a little unsure about booking this property after reading one particularly bad review from a previous guest (1 star). It turns out a lot of what that person said is true BUT the place is not that poor. We think a 6 is far more realistic in its current state. These issues could get sorted easily and the property would then make a mockery of the Leaplish Lodge prices down the road."
