Staff going over and beyond

Diane T,
We stayed in one of their chalets, 26/02/08 for 4 nights. The chalet was fantastic, had everything you could need. Being disabled this is important to me, all the staff were very friendly...... This was the time of the BEAST FROM THE EAST weather forecast, woke up Tuesday to a large amount of snow. we were snow bound in the chalet, had a power cut on the Thursday morning for approx. 5 hours and the staff came every hour with hot water for drinks and to make sure we were alright. On the Friday of us leaving they dug us out making it safe for me to get to the car etc. I can honestly say I found then whole experience MAGICAL, surrounded by the snow, tall trees and the wildlife. Just wish I could have explored a bit as is very disabled friendly. I WILL CERTAINLY GO AGAIN, but hope that there is no snow next time

Excellent break

sil, Manchester England
Stayed for 4 nights( 2 adults 1 child). Stayed in a Falstone lodge which was clean, spacious and included all you could need for self catering. The activities both included in price and ones you had to pay for were great. The staff were fantastic throughout our stay. The reception area is open 24 hours with a shop, there is a pub/restaurant on site and a good gym and swimming pool. Glass of prosecco when you check in and a tin of travel sweets and coffee when you check out really nice touches. In our lodge was a PlayStation and DVD player with free hires from reception. The only down side WiFi and phone reception very poor and the pool didn’t have a shallow end which not great as my son struggled to stand but apart from that would highly recommend

No views

I have just returned from a week here. I was rather disappointed with the lodge. We were in lodge 28 the inside was beautiful the only thing wrong there was the tv remote didn't work but that wasn't s big deal. The one thing which really annoyed me was when I booked this it said there was views from the hot tub of the resivour however this was not the case. The hot tub was in full view of the road behind the lodge with people walking and driving past. There was a fence which went along the back abit then cuts off where the actual hot tub is so are you relaxing in the hot tub people walk or drive past looking at you. Apart from that it is a beautiful place.

Stunning location and great value for money

This was our first visit and we were impressed with the location, beautiful and peaceful. The staff made us very welcome and were really friendly. The park provides some free activities such as crazy golf and family orienteering which make this great value. The paid for activities were also good value. Lodges well equipped, warm and comfortable. There are lovely walks and cycle tracks around kielder water. We were lucky to have clear skies at night were able to see the stars which were very bright in this area with little light pollution. Would highly recommend for a family break.
