Perfect place to log off and relax

Stella P,
For everyone who wants to get off the everyday stress, this is your place. The area around is spectacular, with nature walks and amazing activities to do, like zip wire, sailing, archery, laser shooting and abseiling. The staff were excellent, very welcoming, friendly and helpful in assisting and guiding us with the activities. We had the chance to eat in the restaurant as well, which has AMAZING food. Would love to visit again and do the rest of the activities.

Took my Nephew for an Adventure

charlotte g, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
My husband and I were baby sitting my nephew from the London area, so decided to take him on an adventure day. Booking was easy, and we arrived on Thursday morning, for a day packed full. we were booked on to King swing, archery, high ropes and the climbing wall. Whilst I love the King Swing it was not my nephews favourite and even the bad jokes from the instructors could not lightening his fear. However the high ropes in the afternoon AMAZING! I never thought he would do it, but he did and with great help from Dave our instructor my 8 year nephew loved every minute and as soon as he hit the ground, asked to go again. This is a great place for families and for adventurous little ones that need to push their boundaries. my nephew has already planned his next trip and we can't wait!

Calvert Trust Kielder replied: Charlotte, Thank you for your comments. We are glad to hear you all enjoyed your adventure day and that your nephew overcame his fears and completed the High-ropes course. He is certainly braver than me! If you have any pictures of your experience we would love it if you could share them with us by sending them over to or by sharing your experience on our facebook page. Nice to hear he has his next visit planned and we look forward to welcoming you all again. Regards, Lynsey

Drop-in kayaking and canoeing session

kdeltcheva, London, United Kingdom
We only did the canoeing/kayaking session and had a great time. The instructors were very welcoming and friendly but the only way we had found out about this session was by accident. Even though my partner is disabled, we still had not been able to find clear information on the website to suggest that accommodation or activities were available to other than people with specific needs.

Can't wait to go back

HannahUnderwood2, Prudhoe, United Kingdom
What a beautiful and calm place. Our lodge The Straker was immaculate and so well thought out. Our daughter loved the bubbly, moodlit bathroom and we loved the wood fired hot tub. A real treat for all the family and a great place to spend time with our friends. We were lucky enough to experience both the sensory room and the hydropool in the main centre, the babies were totally mesmerised. We can't wait to go back.

Calvert Trust Kielder replied: Dear Hannah, Thank you for your comments. I am glad to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you cant wait to come back!! We look forward to having you back. Best wishes and hope to see you all again soon. Lynsey

Amazing place

Steve U,
This place is fantastic for a calming, peaceful break in a fantastic location Great walks in beautiful scenery, we loved the lodge we stayed in that was spacious and perfect for small children and adults alike! Amazing place, great to support the charity work they're delivering as well

Calvert Trust Kielder replied: Hello Steve, Thank you for your review. I am glad to hear you and your family enjoyed your stay with us. Yes, there are some spectacular walks around the area, some that you wouldn't encounter another person, so quiet and relaxing. Your comments and support are very much appreciated and we hope that you are able to visit us again soon. Many thanks Lynsey
