Just had a couple of nights at this lovely site in our campervan - it's AWESOME! Excellent facilities, wonderful walks /bike trails with breathtaking views. Without a doubt, the best campsite we've EVER stayed on (and there have been many!) A HUGE thank you to Wayne in Reception (what a lovely guy!) for the friendly welcome and for recommending the...

Great home made cakes at the restaurant, enough to fuel you on for the next stage of the bike route.

We stayed at Leaplish in an Otterstone lodge in April. The Lodge was well appointed, had all we needed and was clean and comfortable. The park itself is well placed for good walks and stunning views, lots of birds and rabbits(LOTS of rabbits) to watch out of the cabin window if it rains all week like it did for us.... More

We stayed at Leaplish in an Otterburn Superior Lodge in late March. I had booked the trip as a Christmas present so we could stay in the area and visit the observatory. The cabin was a great size, there was only two of us but it could easily have accomodated four people. The cabin had lots of wood finish inside... More

We stayed in the Otterburn superior - a lovely spacious lodge with hot tub. Both very clean. Highly recommend watching the stars whilst in the hot tub. Not a great deal going on, but plenty of walks and local attractions. Leaplish shop is reasonably priced, ideal for basics.

The park is lovely and well looked after and the reception staff and maintenance staff were very helpful and very efficient. We will be going back to the park as soon as our... More

Spent three nights in an Otterstone superior lodge. Couldn't fault the lodge, extremely comfortable and well equipped, the hot tub is a must, no better way to view the starry kielder skies! We went off peak so a couple of attractions were closed but still plenty to do. Nice pub on site (the boathouse inn) and nice little indoor pool... More
