A good day out

We spent a lovely Good Friday walking around various parts of Kielder Water & Forest Park. The weather was outstanding and there was a lovely breeze.

Cycle trip around the lake

Great place to visit lots of amazing views, breathtaking forest.

Well worth a visit you can park for the whole day and move your ticket to all the different car parks for different walks. We finished at the Castle for refreshments. It’s huge breathtaking scenery great walks.

Lovely place to walk

Had heard about Kielder for many years but this was my first visit. Approaching from Scotland, stopped at the Castle for information, then drove further round. Great walk for an hour including crossing the dam and seeing the wave chamber.

amazing view and brilliant for holiday

Myself and my friend went camping and stayed three nights here. The landscape here is so amazing and stunning. And really friendly residents and nice walk around the lake. Really glad managed it to come here for holidays and would come back soon as soon as possible. If you are planning a great trip to North England, please make sure you could come here, the landscapes, the nature and the view would really worthy of it.
