Sitting 1400 feet above sea level deep in the heart of the Northumberland National Park, this is a place of big sky views.
Kidlandlee is an off-grid experience benfiting from sustainable solar and wind power with a modern central heating system. The sitting rooms feature log fires which may be stocked with wood harvested from the forests. Surrounded by the beautifully rugged hills of the Upper Coquet Valley this really is a place to escape the crowds and get away from it all. The cottages and barns are located within the Dark Sky park which is the largest protected sky in Europe. Nearby beaches, castles and stately homes make incredible days out.

Just a reminder that we are completely off grid and generate our own electricity through solar and wind. We do have back up generator so this should kick in the the power is low. We would keep an eye on this for our guests if tey just let us know that they are charging.
Customer care support
As we are very remote the only way to get doctors to us would be via air ambulance or mountain rescue.
