60th Birthday Celebration

Susan D,
A great place to gather for a large family. 20 Adults, 4 children and 4 dogs. The dog friendly cabins were brilliant and we could not have gathered without them. The staff at the centre were brilliant and caring. Any age, anybody! We were all able bodied but we just knew these people cared! A great place, close to Leaplish just up the road, 5 minutes by car 40 on foot through wonderful scenery. The pub at Leaplish became home, overlooking the lake and with free wifi and a telephone signal. Meant we were able to FaceTime our son in Seville, Spain who because of work commitments could not join us in person - technology is marvellous! The Observatory is another must! Totally mind blowing!!! Who knew just how insignificant we are? Must, must see venue.

Family day

themajorsclan, Durham, United Kingdom
We were a family of 4, with two girls 10 and 8. We booked a family adventure day and it was fab from start to finish. Danni and Dave were great, we tried the archery, climbing, velcro Olympics and high ropes. Definitely recommend it. Food at lunch was very good with great choice and home cooked. Will be back for the adrenaline fun adventures!

Kielder winter family break

Ian D,
Fantastic family break with no 4G and no phone signal! Absolutely perfect. Wifi available if you want it but for me it was family time. We walked, laughed, star gazed, swam, zip wired, talked, ate and spent some real time together. My kids favourite part was playing cards and drinking hot chocolate under the stars 😍 brilliant time away. Thanks to all in the Kielder region

Calvert Trust Kielder replied: Hello Ian, Lovely to see/hear that you and your family enjoyed your break with us. It truly is magical sitting out under the stars! Hope to have you with us again Best wishes, Lynsey Bell Head of Guest Services

This is an incredible place!

Alison L, Kingston-upon-Hull, United Kingdom
I booked this break to take my daughter, who has a learning disability and autism on an activity holiday. We were in the main centre .The room was clean, beds comfortable & it was quiet. The food was very good, with choices at each meal. But the main reason for Calvert Trust being great is the staff working there All the staff at the centre are friendly, welcoming & helpful- nothing was too much trouble. We had a choice of activities, which we chose the night before- two per day on our package. The instructors are very knowledgeable & experienced with people with disabilities. They make sure everyone participating in the activity is able to experience the full activity- eg the zip wire activity or the King swing. My daughter finds climbing difficult as she hasn't much strength in her arms & has poor coordination & balance. Both the instructors helped her & encouraged her to climb up the indoor climbing wall. Everyone's achievements are celebrated & no one is excluded. There are plenty of activities available- archery, canoeing, sailing, climbing, zip wire, King swing, orienteering, to name a few! There is also a hydrotherapy pool and a sensory roomwhich can be booked on an hourly basis. There is a bar/ shop in the reception area & staff organise an activity each evening. There is a games room with table tennis etc to keep the family occupied Wi Fi is only available in certain areas of the centre, so those areas tend to be occupied by the teens on their phones or tablets!! All in all, a relaxed place to spend time in, where I felt my daughter was safe and happy.

Calvert Trust Kielder replied: Dear Alison, Thank you for the lovely comments, i will make sure these are passed on to the staff. I am glad your daughter enjoyed her stay and experienced a wide range of the activities on offer. Hopefully we will have the pleasure of welcoming you both to us again in 2017. Kind regards, Lynsey Bell Head of Guest Services

Family Adventure Day that exceeded expectations

Pete M, Newcastle
For my 40th the family bought me a Family Adventure day, so off we went with a general idea of outdoors adventures and what we experienced was fantastic, The instructor Rich and Pip were fantastic and crammed loads into a day and were very flexible to try and balance the activities to the changeable weather. The whole family had a blast and still regularly tell family and friends about how good it was. Cant recommend enough, we did archery, climbing, high ropes, kind swing, Velcro Olympics, we mixed in with other people whilst we were there and had great fun. The catering was great hope to go back soon.
