The attractive village of Kielder with its low-slung stone cottages is surrounded by Europe’s largest forest at the northerly tip of the biggest man made lake in Northern Europe.
Kielder Village is a springboard to the many activities and attractions award winning Kielder Water & Forest Park has to offer.
Take a stroll along the former track of the Border Counties Railway line to the Kielder Viaduct. Here, the country’s best-preserved ‘skew-arch’ bridge soars above the point where the North Tyne flows into the Bakethin Reservoir.
Even if fishing doesn’t hook you, the nearby Kielder Salmon Centre makes for a fascinating visit. Home to the largest conservation hatchery in England and Wales, up to 900,000 salmon are bred here each year. You’ll discover the amazing life cycle of salmon, too.
Paying homage to the dark skies above, Kielder Observatory offers a stargazing and astronomy heaven that is out of this world. Channel your inner Brian Cox and learn about the night sky above Kielder Village. Try out powerful telescopes and learn how to take photographs of a galaxy of objects.
