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

If you go in the summer months, take jungle formula. The reason for 3 stars is the widely differing standard of chalets. There are 3 "luxury chalets " and about 10 ordinary ones. The new ones are very well equipped and furnished and worth the money. The old ones need renovating. They are very spacious but the price is not much less than the luxury ones. This doesn't make sense. The chalets do all have washing machines, dishwashers, tumble dryers and irons. Everything else, apart from the accommodation was good. Food in the centre was plentiful and not too expensive. The activities were well supervised. Staff are friendly and helpful. I did make these comments the manager but have not had a satisfactory explanation.

We visited back in April for a short holiday and we were not dissapointed. Our chalet was so spacious and the food served in the resturant, fantastic! The onsite activities are varied and the swimming pool is great. We cannot wait to return for another holiday :-D

Calvert Trust Kielder replied: QuipsterQuipster, thank you very much for your comments. I am so glad to read that you enjoyed your stay and took part in some of our activities. Fabulous that you are thinking about staying again, please just give a member of our Sales Team a call when you are ready to look at dates. Kind regards, Lynsey

A brilliant all-round experience in the most wonderful part of the country

alwayswearred, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
The highlight of the Calvert offering in Kielder is always the people that work there. We have stopped here three times now and the staff are endlessly supportive and willing to delight. They provide great accommodation, from the amazing Straker cabin (never stayed anywhere posher anywhere in the world!) to the more basic but still fab Main Building rooms. The outdoor activities are for disabled people and able bodied people too. It's inspiring to see such inclusiveness and loveliness all in one place! And the food is BIG and affordable. A great break and life changing too. A brilliant contrast to overly-commercial and plastic leisure offerings where all the kids do is eat ice cream and lie about.
