We very much enjoyed our stay at Kielder. Wayne who runs the site is very helpful and accommodating.

The facilities are clean and plentiful with powerful showers, the pitches are large enough and nicely spaced out so you don't feel like you're on top of fellow guests.

The site itself is set up on a hillside in the forest above the lake. There are some beautiful views from the pitches in the open area.

What we really liked about the site is the fact that you can do a lot from the site like cycling, swimming, hiring boats to go out on the lake, walking around the lake, you can easily ride over to the MTB trails that lead out from Kielder Castle. There are also bird of prey displays each day and the excellent Kielder Observatory is just down the road but book ahead to avoid disappointment!

If I were to warn you of anything, it would be that midges descended in the evenings and early mornings when we were there. There's not a lot anyone can do, just pack the insect repellent.

Stayed here for 2 nights. We had a very large pitch with an uninterrupted view of the lake.

A lovely well kept site with plenty to do.

The lakeside cycle track is challenging but fun.

We were taking a breather after a few hectic days so this site was perfect having a indoor swimming pool, archery and crossbow classes available and even had a bird of prey centre and Osprey viewing area.

The facilities were modern and clean.

The local bar was great for catching up on emails whilst enjoying a beer.

The only downside were the midges!

If you seek beautiful scenery, peace and quiet- this is the site to visit! We had intended to do lots of cycling but at times it was a little too up and down for our liking. (However- head towards Keilder castle and the cafe- a gentler path. )Nevermind- we sat and enjoyed the views of the lake in the sun. The birds of prey centre is lovely and very child orientated, the boat ride is very good.

The campsite is excellent. The toilet block is clean, the showers powerful and hot and there are free hairdryers - no walking back with wet hair!

Previous reports of midges?! Well- use repellents, spray your interiors- be wise- this is a small price to pay for this type of glorious isolation! ( If you have a large motorhome- ring 3 days before to secure a suitable pitch- thank you Wayne!)

We stayed at this site with two under fives. Even though it rained constantly we had a great time.

On arrival the friendly wardens suggested a good pitch for the kids for access to the play park and pool.

Washrooms were clean and modern and there is a basic shop on site.

Just off site at the waterpark there is a very nice restaurant, decent shop, play areas, crazy golf and the pool and sauna which you have to book for. The kids also enjoyed the Osprey viewing area.

Away from the site there is a few good pubs within 15 minutes drive and at kielder village there is fuel, plus loads of walks in the area.

Only negative is poor TV reception but it was expected because of remote location.

Overall a very nice site and will be back soon!

Just had a wonderful 5days on this site. The owners work very hard to keep site up to standard, but have an uphill battle between them as they are the only 2 looking after the whole site, unlike CC wardens who have assistants for days off and grass-cutting. We cannot fault the friendliness or facilities, toilets and showers could do with an upgrade but always hot water proper hairdriers and never a wait. We will definitely go back only wish we could have stayed longer, but had to leave early due to family illness. Midges were not a problem, maybe people who live in towns should stay there or come prepared with smoke sticks and repellent just in case, you do get insects in the countryside along with all the pleasurable things too. They say there is no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing, no such thing a problem with midges just unprepared people. Big thankyou for all your help.

We stayed for 2 nights on this lovely site. The roads to it are bendy and remote so you do feel like you drive a long way with nothing around but they are wide enough and we managed without problems. On arrival there's a phone to call reception where I spoke to a friendly gentleman who advised us to select any free pitch. When we arrived we turned right and pitched up there but on reflection these pitches are probably more suited to the seasonal vans - they're very sloping. You are actually better turning left going past the lakeside pitches (if there are none available!) and heading to the pitches down there - they're a lot flatter! Our vans front legs only just touched the ground - I used to carry blocks but have never used them since I started caravanning so got rid of them but would have come in handy here. Alternatively if you do pitch up there, lengthways would be better. The toilet/shower block is lovely. Clean, warm and even has music playing - I was impressed. There's a small shop on site stocking the basics. A short walk takes you to the lakeside, where there's a pool, bar and little craft/basic food shop. We didn't use the pool but it looked very nice. The boat inn restaurant is a lovely bar and offers free wifi (handy to catch up on your phone as there's no phone signal here (for O2) and I believe is limited for other networks also. We only had a drink in the bar but any food that came out looked delicious and prices were very reasonable. Midges are a known issue - so do take spray but expect to be bitten! We are still itching from the visit even though we used very strong repellent! We would definitely return here for a relaxing break, the views and walks from the site are brilliant - but would avoid the midge season!
