Living in Corbridge, I visit Kielder Water an average of twice a year and so far this year I have cycled the lake for a third time (Twice over as many years) and I have camped at Kielder Campsite - see my other review.

We have spent most of our holiday cycling the paths with our 4 and 7 year old children. We have all loved the experience and can't wait to return one day. The trails are well laid out and well signed. The area was very peaceful and a great antidote to busy modern life. A big thank you to the forestry... More

I drove to Kielder water whilst on holiday in the Lake District to see if this is somewhere we would go for a holiday. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it but have got to say there is a massive overkill on the high number of signs and advertising boards everywhere especially around the castle area!

We camped here for a weekend, the weather was great so we were expecting lots of people to be out, but there wernt. There are a lot of attractions to keep you busy. Look out for Osprey near the lakes also!

Just had fabulous 5 day break with the dogs. Stayed in Otterstone lodge. All newly refurbished beautiful. Proper quiet dog holiday, this time of year, But would certainly imagine a family holiday in summer is fabulous. Very activity orientated. Fencing, archery, sking, boats, loads of walks etc, birds of prey, also tents and camping pitches. 250 miles to this site.... More

Spent the day here just walking around and taking pictures, absolutely beautiful part of the country. We didnt get any phone signal up here so it was an amazing escape from urban areas.

The negative reviews are misleading. This was a good day out for the kids and certainly kept the magic of christmas alive. Yes, there are areas of the event that could be improved but the drama performances (Beavers, Mrs Christmas, The Christmas theatre) were really well done. Snow tubing was fun and Santa was great! (not creepy and nice touch... More
