 Brilliant site in Kielder Forest, a short walk from Kielder village.

The site is in a lovely woodland setting and everything is nicely spaced out. Friendly warden and good facilities. Short walk to Anglers Arms and Kielder castle.

The site is an excellent base for walking, cycling and watersports.

Great site!

 We loved our stay at this campsite. Itís in a beautiful area. The manager is helpful and friendly. He told us to pick our own pitch. Due to the rainfall the ground was extremely soft and by the end of our stay it was very muddy.

It is naturally a wet site though due to itís situation near the river. This also brings the midges! I had taken citronella candles and incense burners plus spray after reading reviews.

It helped a bit but we still got bitten. The facilities are excellent. The showers were lovely and hot - I never had to wait and the site did get busy.

There was a laundry which I used - you get the tokens from reception. There was a covered area for cooking if you didnít have room in your tent. Usual washing up area.

A small playground on the site too. Everything you would need really. We went to the pub just a short walk from the site on the first night. I thought there was a good choice of menu and we enjoyed our meal.

The area is really popular with mountain bikers and there is a bike hire place in the village. We had some lovely walks in the area. We went to the Birds of Prey Centre at Leapfish which is well worth a visit. Your ticket is for all day so you can go in and out as many times as you like.

We visited Hadrianís wall sites which are not too far away. Alnwick castle was about 90minutes away - expensive but a full day out which we really enjoyed. There is no WiFi at all so I suggest you do all your planning of places to visit before you go.

The nearest shops are in Bellingham (17 miles away). The site is remote and you do have to travel to get to anything but on a clear night the sky is amazing and well worth it even with the pesky midges!

 A lovely peaceful site. The toilet and shower block brilliant ! The very best camp website we have come across, loads of helpful information in amusing style.

We took our bikes to the lake and rode part of the south shore. As a disabled rider note the path is wide, accessible, but prepare for some steep sections.

There are toilets located at car parks along the route and a decent cafe and bar at Leeaplish. The pub has decent beer, food is not home cooked unfortunately. Observatory is really good, needs pre booking.

We didnít encounter midges as it was October. No mobile signal and Wi-fi only by reception. We found wifi and signal at Leaplish.

 Excellent facilities. Great showers. Steve the Manager was very friendly and couldn't do enough to make our stay any better. A credit to the campsite. We will definitely be going back.

This is a Child friendly peaceful campsite.

Don't worry if you forget your Midge repellent Steve has a great stock to keep the beasties at bay.

 A great location near the Kielder Visitor Centre with dog-friendly pub and cafť. The site is flat with plenty of hardstandings - very necessary as the grass areas were extremely soft. The facilities were excellent, lovely and warm, a real bonus at this time of year.

The warden was very friendly and helpful so overall we had a lovely three days.

One point, with the closure of the only other campsite, Leaplish, this site will probably become oversubscribed so book early.

 Really enjoyable site, Midge season had just finished, the only internet was at the local pub.

Booked the day before arriving, as it is one of the sites open in October, long drive past beautiful the scenery of the Kielder Lake and forest, but well worth it.

Easy walk to the forest area and to the local pub and shop. If we were stopping longer we would have taken the bycycles.

Not far from the Keilder Observatory, however the night sky from the site (clouds permitting) is fantastic.

Only a short hop up the road into Scotland and back to internet land again.

During the Midge season there are Midges, however there are Midge reduction systems on site so although controlled they are still here but in reduced numbers.

Well worth another visit next year

 Greeted by the most friendly and helpful warden, couldn't do enough a real credit, we were able to pick our pitch which we did, but it wouldn't have mattered as all pitches were good and really spacious.

The campsite was immaculate the shower / toilet block was spotless with endless hot water, the camp is the ideal place to get away from it all, so peaceful and tranquil, with endless walks for our dogs, the local pub was a 2 min walk through campsite next to the stream, where they served really nice meals all day, the staff were friendly and welcoming.

In all couldn't fault our stay it was so peaceful would without a doubt return here and recommend if you want a quiet place to stay

Only one thing to fault that's the midges on an evening but that can't be helped and in the camps situation only to be expected

 Friendly welcome from the warden on arrival who explained where everything was. Easy to book online. Plenty of hard standings for non tent campers, well spaced out. Great to be in middle of the forest especially as midges hadn't arrived yet! Walks in all directions plus bike rides. We enjoyed finding Okey Doke in the forest as it brought back memories now our kids are at Uni ! You can go Gruffalo hunting too if your kids are younger.

Wifi works well outside office. If you are in line of sight it even works further away. No mobile reception but wifi calling works ok.

Easy to exercise your dog off the site though one owner let their dog poo outside our campervan! Maybe site needs a sign for those daft owners!

Lovely toilet block with rain showers i. E. The type of shower head not the weather ! All very clean. One shower has very limited space in the ladies so avoid that one if you can. Easy walk to pub though we didn't enjoy our meal there. Microwave well used by the cook ! Landlord very welcoming though and happy for you to bring your dogs in.

Close to Kielder observatory so great if you have booked an event there. Didn't get back till 11. 45pm so was conscious that it was hard not to disturb others but there is no restriction on when you come and go from campsite.

I'm sure we will be back again. Can't see on website when campsite opens and closes though for season.
