Quiet Beauty

normanandmarilyn, Caldicot, United Kingdom
This is an incredible lake and Dam of extreme beauty The walks around the lake are well signposted and well worth the effort We went to one of the Squirrel Hides but did not see a squirrel We were however rewarded with a spectacular array of lovely birds

Great location, avoid in the summer!

Excellent location, but not during the summer months. Black flies in vast quantities (especially near the water) are ever present. Insect repellant seems to be more of an attractant! Spring and Autumn for me are the best times to go. Trail walks are spectacular.

Had a lovely full day exploring Kielder Water and Forest. One great thing pay once in a car park and can park in them all. Great idea. From Castle right down to Leaplish and further. Walks, bird watching, red squirrel hunting, listening to the water it is all so relaxing.

Kielder 4 x 4 Safari with Mountain Rescue Council

overthetyne, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Once a month in order to raise funds for the various Kielder rescue organisations a 4 x 4 Safari is organised. Great reason to get out there. You must use a sturdy 4x4 vehicle as the course is just awesome in various different terrains covering miles of forest tracks. Look it up on the internet and get booking. Great chaps take you round and look after you. Along side the actual drive the scenery is spectacular too. You access parts the general public never are allowed. Only need a pack up for your lunch or could even purchase something from the Dukes Pantry Café at the starting/finishing point at Kielder Castle. We did this on a rainy day and it did not hinder us at all. In fact it meant for more fun with water filled tracks to navigate.

Good paths make easy walking around the reservoir. Some of the walks in the forest can be a bit steep but very enjoyable. Good for bird watching.
