The pretty village of Otterburn lies on the banks of the River Rede, close to where it meets Otter Burn. Set amid the spectacular scenery of the Cheviot Hills, Otterburn is in the heart of the Northumbrian upland valley of Redesdale, just 16 miles from the Scottish border.
Wandering along the riverbanks is a popular activity on self-catering holidays in Otterburn, with lovely views across the Otterburn Ranges, and the chance to spot otters. In the heart of the village, Otterburn Mill houses an outstanding museum, and a cafe serving light lunches. There are a number of family-run businesses in the village, including the Border Reiver Village Shop, which sells a range of local produce. For a pint of local ale or a bite to eat, pop into one of Otterburn’s cosy, old pubs, including the Bird in Bush, Coach House and Redesdale Arms.
