Place to get away from it all

This site is remote and benefits from the dark skies that Kielder offers. Sit out and listen to the nightlife whilst watching the stars. The pitches are well placed to enjoy views across the North Tyne valley. Facilities include a motorhome service point and drinking water stands are close to the pitches. The local facilties including a public house and bike hire are less than 20 mins walk away. Will be returning in the future.

Great place to stay

If you’re into the stars then you need to go here. We had a beautiful clear night and the sky was breathtaking. Great walks and a lovely pub within easy walking distance. £25 a night though, so nowhere near the £18 mentioned on the website. Also, the owner could have been a little more help, especially when the water was frozen up, but, not a big deal.

A real getaway

We stayed 4 nights here, and enjoyed being able to walk into the forest from the site, or to the lake. A great base for walking and cycling, and for the places of interest along Hadrian's Wall if you don't mind a (very pleasant) drive. Make sure you're stocked up with supplies, and don't expect to get a phone signal. On the other hand, you're in a dark sky area, and the stars are beautiful on a clear night. Lovely views, although there are holiday chalets just below you. It might not be so peaceful in peak holiday season. Friendly and helpful owners.

Stunning location!

A truly stunning little CL site. Good access and all pitches hard standing which in bad weather could be of real benefit as the location is wonderfully remote. The owners were very welcoming. Amazing walks on the doorstep within Kielder Forest. Will definitely return.

Amazing Quiet Site

This is an amazing quiet little site with only 7 Hardstanding Pitches. The site is small with great views over the forest. The site is walking distance of the Castle and bike shop. It’s fantastic for walking and biking in Kielder forest. You need to take all you need for your stay as there are no shops in the area. There is no phone reception or 3G/4g on o2 network and none of the phones in the village work. The site is perfect for a short stay if you have a van with Toilet and Shower. We only have a toilet so needed to move on for a shower. The site would be perfect if it had at least one male and one female toilet and shower. We would short stay again but if it had showers and toilets we would stay a week or more. Great site with great potential.
