just back from staying at the osprey lodge Monday to Friday it is set in a stunning location with good facilities the lodge itself was perfect, comfortable, warm and clean with everything you could need or want the added bonus is the hot tub. The campsite is quiet and relaxing, you can go for fantastic walks into the forest The owners are very friendly and helpful nothing is too much trouble even with a slight hiccup with the hot tub which was resolved immediately and he took the time the following day to make sure everything was still ok
we took everything we would need with us but if you run short of something there is a small shop about a 10/15 min drive away
only about 50 min's away from Newcastle's Metro Centre if you need some retail therapy :)
you can also enjoy the drive along the Forest Road to Keilder Castle and Keilder water with some excellent views
I found this holiday to be very relaxing ( that might have been down to the time spent in the hot tub ) I don't know where the time went it was over before we knew it
we will be back and would recommend people to stay here

for this helpful couple. Even over a busy bank holiday.
The 3 of us, including the pooch enjoyed our stay on the campsite. A stunning location,good facilities and we can also recommend the food which the local Thai restaurant delivers to the campsite ,giving the wonderful head chef/bottle washer a welcome break from his duties!

Beautiful camp site just outside of Keilder Water. The owners are so friendly and helpful they really do make your stay :-) secluded and cosy would recommend. Forest road takes you through the most gorgeous drive to Keilder Water where there are some fab cycle trials. There are no shops near so take plenty of supplies.

We have held a summer siting for our caravan for nine years and never cease to marvel at the wild life surroundingus. This year for the first time our feeding station has been visited by a family of Jays and a couple of Kingfishers have perched on branches 25yds upstream. We are now waiting for the Otters to show themselves again. Many other bird species have thrived after a very late breeding season and if you take all this for granted there is always the resident animals to survey.
Of course the site and its facilities have improved considerably in the years we have been coming due to the enthusiasm and attention to detail of the owners.
If you are looking for a summer base for your walking or visits to the numerous attractions of the area then look no further.

I have stayed in Gowshak, Osprey and Heron Lodge.... does that just not say something in itself, the fact I have been 3 times !! All lodges spotless, peaceful location, very friendly owners / staff / animals. I just returned on Wednesday after celebrating a special birthday there with my friends, enjoyed it so much we booked an extra 2 nights. My friends were so pleased with the whole set up that we are looking to return all together again in November.

just arrived home kicking and screaming from our time at border forest holiday park, we stayed in our trusty tourer and enjoyed every second from long walks to talking to the cows, chickens etc, we hit lucky with the weather although dare i say too hot, so the midges were out caravanning and camping aswell however did not spoil our getaway at all, we had a wonderful time, no groups or loud behaviour just peace and quiet, owners were lovely and will be definetly returning now that we have found our perfect retreat, oh and a nice shoutout to the grass cutter who enjoys his job and makes sure he gets every strand of grass, keep up the good work the grounds were lovely!
