Living North is delighted to have teamed up with holiday cottage company Kidlandlee, in the heart of Northumberland’s National Park, to offer one lucky reader a short break worth £595 in one of their beautiful self-catering cottages.
Nestled in the heart of Northumberland’s National Park, the little hamlet of Kidlandlee sits 1400 feet above sea level, surrounded by the rolling landscape of the Cheviot Hills. With a beguiling history dating back to the 12th century, it is best known for once having the highest shooting lodge in England. Whilst the Shooting Lodge has long since gone, beautiful, remote Kidlandlee really is a place where you can find your inner escape from it all. The magical light of breaking dawn gives way to evenings of star gazing as the moon ambles its way across this spectacular landscape. And for lovers of the great outdoors, or those seeking a blissful escape from it all, the beautifully secluded location of these luxury holiday cottages and barn conversions offers peace and tranquillity, where the landscape takes centre stage.
Cottage owners Matthew and Terri are passionate about sustainable tourism and are totally committed to improving and lowering their environmental impact on what is one of the most beautiful hamlets of the Upper Coquet Valley. Their goal to achieve an off-grid experience without compromising on luxury has seen Kidlandlee awarded Gold status by Green Tourism and Four/ Five Star Gold status by Visit England.
The Cottages and Barns are powered by solar trackers and wind turbines, water is pumped from two bore holes and filtered on site, two bio waste systems naturally treat and dispose of your wastewater, and they encourage wildlife habitats too, so watch out for the deer, pheasants, grouse and red squirrels!
Planting a new wood in 2019 and creating space for wild-flower meadows later this year, guests will soon have the option to plant a tree or scatter local wild-flower seeds to off-set their carbon footprint.
Kidlandlee really is the place to stand still for ‘just one quiet moment’, recharge the soul and look inwards to nature, and we are giving one lucky reader the opportunity to win a four-night stay (for a total of four guests and two well-behaved dogs) in one of Kidlandlee’s Gold Star-rated cottages, where the winner will also receive a luxury hamper full of local goodies sourced by Tully’s of Rothbury, and a bottle of Berry Bros & Rudd Pink English Sparkling Wine.
To be in with a chance of winning this great getaway, worth £595, simply send your name and contact details on a postcard to Living North, Studio 2, St Nicholas Chare, Newcastle NE1 1RJ, enter online at livingnorth.com or email email@example.com. Please mark your entry Kidlandlee. All entries to be received by 13th April 2021.
