Places to stay

In and around the Kielder Forest Park, and within a short drive in all cases of the observatory itself,  there are a range of superb Hotel and Bed and Breakfast facilities for our visitors to use as a base before visiting us. These all offer comfortable accommodation in some of the darkest skies in the whole of Europe. Kielder Observatory is proud to provide links to many of these facilities and hope that if you are visiting us, you can also grace them with your time and company. If you are a local provider of such accommodation then please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll endeavour to add you to this list.
