What's Going On

Kielder Water and Forest Park and Northumberland National Park have been jointly awarded Gold Tier Dark Sky Park status. This new zone is to be called Northumberland International Dark Sky Park and it is the first of its kind in England, recognising that Northumberland's countryside is typified by brilliant starry skies, tranquil villages, and unspoilt hills and forests. Many visitors come to The Old School House in order to experience these tranquil and unspoilt surroundings. It's why we say please bring a torch!

The Forest View Inn Byrness is within easy walking distance of the Old School House, serves home cooked meals and is licensed, selling locally brewed hand pulled real ales, fine wines and malt whiskies.

Our cheeky visiting squirrel. June 2013. The squirrels have been elusive this year but you may still be lucky.
