Lovely roads through the heart of the Kielder Forest

skilegend, Leamington Spa, United Kingdom
Spent a couple of hours here , down by the lakeside and driving back and forth along the road through the forest , stopping off at one or two scenic places.

Lots of outdoorsy stuff

N C, Letchworth, United Kingdom
We went for a walk of the beaten track, just picked up an OS map and selected a route for a walk along a marked path. if one does that I would suggest you select a path along a track rather than a walking path as unused paths can get overgrown and boggy. Even better option is to use marked trails, number 10 that we walked along for a while is excellent. One more great thing to do it to go for a drive along the forest track for £3 toll. It gives excellent views. We had a picnic on one of the hills with views over a valley. yes there is some forest after harvesting but it's not that much and one can easily find a great view

Great Day

harshman, York, UK
A party of 9 friends met on our annual visit, primarily to view the ospreys. After viewing from the osprey viewing area with our scopes we watched the nest camera in the visitor centre and were given an update on all the nests by one of the dedicated volunteers. We then had a walk through the woods and visited the bird hide on the way. Fortunately the weather was kind to us which made it all the more enjoyable. We then had a picnic lunch utilising one of the many waterside picnic tables. After a delicious lunch we moved to the Bakethin nature reserve to view the recently built hide which is to be officially opened on 20th July 2017. What a disappointment the new hide proved to be. Obviously designed by an architect, rather than a bird watcher, the hide looks pleasing enough but viewing was restricted by the poor design and position of the windows. The hide for some reason is divided into 2 and this restricts the number of people that can view at a time, in fact the right hand section can only be used comfortably by 2 people. The old hide that has been replaced was more functional than the new one.

On or Off

carjams, London, United Kingdom
If your active your going to love this place. On or off water plenty to go. There's a regular ferry to get you about to and a pub with good food and drink. Throw in an obsevetory, good walks and amazing views. Don't miss it.

Great lakeside and woodland walks

patterman, UK
We spent about 5 hours at Kielder walking around various parts. Parked up at 3 different locations and explored on foot with pleasant walks around the lakeside and across the dam and also through woodland. Spent time in the hides watching red squirrels and various pretty small birds. At Kielder village the castle was closed for refurbishment and also the Salmon attraction, will be better attractions when work completed - marked down from 5 to 4 on account of these.
