The Liddel Haven is a stunning luxury cottage situated in a little hamlet called Saughtree next to the river Liddel in the Scottish Borders. Although in Scotland this beautiful stone built shepherd’s cottage is only a stone’s throw away from Kielder Water and all the outdoor activities Kielder offers and is suitable for up to 4 people.

Upstairs will take guests to a luxurious twin room where the beds can also be converted to a Super King and the double room of the same standard, where a King size bed awaits. All mattresses are of a superior quality and both rooms also come complete with tea and coffee making facilities. No trip to Bonny Scotland would be complete without having “a wee dram” so guests are welcome to help themselves to a complimentary drink from a decanter of whiskey.
