We went to this site for our 1st time and cannot recommend this site highly enough. The toilet block was very clean and the showers very powerful and hot. The play area and restaurant area were very clean and ideal for our 4 children ranging from 2 - 14. The site is set in some fantastic scenery with beautiful views and the bike/walks from site around the lake are truly outstanding. This is like an unknown Lake District type gem of a place. If you want to be pernichty the only things that may bother some people would be the midges (which do bite!), no internet connection or signal and the nearest shop is 20mins drive (although the shop on site is ok for basic items). We did not have chance to make use of all the facilities but there is plenty to do for everyone and all ages. We will definitely be back but more prepared for the beastly midges. Oh and the site wardens were exceptionally helpful and friendly.

We've just spent 2 nights at Leaplish camp site. (We knew there'd be midges so we were prepared with room and body spray, plus mesh mossie head cover!)

The site and facilities were well kept and clean with fast flowing hot water in the shower block. What did disappoint me was that there was only a wall fixed folding seat within the shower tray. Fine to use if you needed to sit whilst showering but no good to sit on to assist dressing! There was no handrail to hang on to either. I guess there were disabled facilities which I didn't investigate as I generally don't need them but did need a bit of support on this occasion.

Recommend campers read the notice board in the lodge reception area. We went for a walk round the lakeshore expecting to take the shorter route only to find it was closed for logging. We found the notice once we got back.

Swimming pool and sauna made up for long walk. It was like having our own spa. Worth the extra cost which we had thought was included in the camp fees.

Centre Bar and restaurant staff very friendly and good choice of food.

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.
