Although a separate "village" from Kielder, Kielder is generally accepted as including Butteryhaugh. Butteryhaugh was intended to be the second of five villages to be built in the area to accommodate forestry workers at Kielder Forest. With the mechanisation of forest activities and hence the need for fewer men, the final three villages were never constructed.
The village is just 2 miles (3 km) from the border with Scotland.
