Lovely walk along Kielder Water towards the dam wall. Disappointed that cafe at visitor Centre did not have a dog friendly area, would have thought they are missing out as many people must take their dog here.

26miles of ups and downs, supposed to be the easier of routes. I'm a fit 61 year old and managed it, albeit I walked my bike up a few of the hills towards the end, Great views, well recommended if your up for it.

Adults biked all the way around the lake , able to stop off for snacks and interesting views , . The paths were well kept and able to easily pass other users . Some persons with dogs could be more considerate

We drove the toll road through the forest which was beautiful. Didn't see a red squirrel but did see a deer. Wonderful place.

Hi, we didn’t get a supermarket delivery but we definitely saw other lodges get them. I’m sure it was Tesco but best to check first. Hope this helps!
