Always enjoy a drive through Keilder, but now that my partner is less mobile and cannot leave the car much, a few good birdwatching viewpoints would be good. We have a 4+4 which is helpful. Stunning place and well worth a visit at any time.

Kielder Forest and Lake - nature at its best

AlEc777, London, United Kingdom
While visiting the Lake District, my family wanted to return to Kielder Forest during the day. On our last visit, we travelled by night to visit the Kielder Observatory to view the stars via the large telescopes. On this occasion, we enjoyed walking through the forest, especially via the evergreen pines, and admiring the huge scenic lake scenes. At Kielder, you can also hire bikes, visit the castle or have fun walking through the mini maze. It's worth every penny of the five pounds to park all day at the park. My only regret was that we didn't have more time to explore other areas of the beautiful, well kept forest. Immense yourself in the wonderful experience. Simply nature at its best.

Good walking

Winter Wonderland

Alansioux, England
Stayed in one of the log cabins for 3 nights..can't fault them..they're clean and the hot tub was well maintained..the downside are the so called 'activities' during the day..a lecture on recycling by Mrs Christmas and her friends..a Nativity play that has very little to do with Nativity..the Elves workshop and Santa were crowded but just needs to feel more see kids looking bored and perplexed at some of it..a lovely place but the 'entertainment' during the day needs looking at.

Britain's most beautiful marathon

deepfreezevegan17, Morpeth, United Kingdom
Kielder is an incredibly stunning place to visit throughout the year but it really impresses when the Autumn is in full swing. Taking part in the marathon is a great way to see the entire place and experience something special. Well worth it if you're looking for something like that.
