Kielder Water & Forest Park is home to the largest man-made lake in Northern Europe. With over 250 square miles to explore, a host of wildlife and all kinds of outdoor activities to get involved in, it's a fabulous place to take a holiday. In the heart of the park, you'll stay at Straker Lodges, a group of luxurious two-storey holiday homes with whirlpool baths and eco-friendly hot tubs.
Go hiking, horse riding, devote whole days to walking nature trails, hop on your mountain bike and take part in a range of adventure sports. When you've finished, there's a relaxing indoor hydrotherapy pool, a sauna and sensory room and an on-site aromatherapist. For snacks try the Kielder Castle Café at the Visitors' Centre and for a fine Sunday lunch, visit The Anglers' Arms in Kielder Village.
These fabulous lodges are stunningly laid out over two floors and boast a super king sized double room with en-suite shower, a king sized double room and one twin bedroom. The bathroom has a whirlpool bath and deluge shower, and there's also a cosy log burner, a mezzanine seating area and a large terrace with an eco-friendly, wood burning hot tub.
Northumberland is famed for its dark nights - the skies are darker here than anywhere else in the country - so you can sit back and really enjoy star gazing. The Park is a haven for wildlife so try and spot one or more of the Kielder 'Super Six' - ospreys, red squirrels, pipstrelle bats, roe deer, salmon and otters.

Giant tree top obstacle courses include ladders, bridges, tunnels and some of the country's best zip lines. You will be provided with all safety equipment and training on site.
