Open all year
Did a short walk and played in the maze on a rainy day. Ok to break up a journey but better for exploring the forest Iwith more time I expect.
A fun day out for all the family
We spent a few hours wandering around the forest and water park, It's very picturesque and there's plenty of activities for all the family to enjoy.

Visited Tower Knowe Visitor Centre last week during a holiday in Northumberland for a walk and some refreshments and the staff in the restaurant/cafe here were really nice, helpful and kind.

We parked in Leaplish and did the lakeside walk, approx 6 miles return. Its a fairly easy walk with the most beautiful views and plenty of opportunities to sit and have a picnic. We managed to find our way ok as had downloaded a plan from the internet but we did find some of the walk signage could have been better. Plenty to do for all ages and a gift shop, toilets, bar/restaurant on site.
What a brilliant visit!!
I could write loads about our visit this last weekend ( not the first). Without doubt, Kielder lake & surrounding facilities are some of best entertainment activities in north of England. Best this time was the Gruffalo trail through the deep, dark woods. Starts at Kielder Castle. Download the app before you go. Signs on a trail magically turn into moving characters from 'The Gruffalo'. Great for young kids! Plan a whole day there. Several parking & activity areas - playparks, boating, restaurants, walks - GREAT day out!
