Welcome to the Redesdale Arms

Carrol and Mark took over the Redesdale Arms in June 2008. Beautifully situated overlooking the Rede Valley and after falling in love with the wonderful Northumberland countryside, they decided that this was a perfect place to live and work.


The Redesdale Arms is known as the "First & Last" Inn on route to Scotland and has been providing a warm welcome to visitors for centuries.

The oldest part of the building is over 600 years old and is a former bastle house - a fortified dwelling that provided defence during the late middle ages when this part of the world was known as the "Debatable Lands" - A lawless region roamed over by bands of outlaws from both sides of the border known as Border Reivers.

Today the area is a far more tranquil place where visitors from both sides of the border can be assured of a very warm welcome, good food and hospitality
