Warden Wayne was very helpful and suggested the pitch that suited us as most pitches are shaded beneath the pine trees.

The views of the lake are amazing.

We had a meal at the Leaplish bar and restaurant, just a short stroll through the site. Dogs are allowed in part of the bar.

Dog walking was not as we expected as they have to be kept on a lead around the lake.

Hot water and high pressure made showering a treat.

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!

We loved this park. There wasn't really any negatives that we found so I will list the things that we liked about the park.

KIDS - Kids are allowed to build dens in the forest parts. There are a couple of great play parks near the water for the them to play. There are activities you can book them onto if you want at the waterside reception. My daughter enjoyed the Birds of Prey centre which is on sight.

DOGS - Very dog friendly even the waterside restaurant have an indoor area where you can take your dog in. Lots of lovely walks. Kielder Castle cafe is also dog friendly.

SHOWER/TOILET FACILITIES - Immaculate, warm, warm showers.

CYCLING -The park itself is hilly so not ideal for kids bikes but there are plenty of places to go with your bikes. There is also a bike hire somewhere not far from the park where there are bike trails.

ACTIVITIES - There is a Birds of Prey centre on sight and you can book activities at the waterside reception. Nearby is Kielder Castle and cafe, worth a visit. It has a maze and playpark which the kids enjoyed. There is also a bike hire across from the castle and bike trails. We didn't try it this time but looked amazing.

EATING OUT - We went to the restaurant on site which was good and reasonably priced. We also had lunch at Kielder Castle cafe which is also dog friendly

I definitely recommend this park and will return again.

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!
