Northumberland Kielder Water and Forest Park
Check Availability
Adults 18+
Children 2 - 17
Infants under 2

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.

Our Top Tip
"You can also sail Kielder Water on The Osprey Ferry, a 60 seater motor cruiser."

A fantastic place to spend a weekend . Beautiful area ,lovely scenery . The lodge itself ( we stayed in the Bradbury) was amazing boasting a jacuzzi bath ,private hot tub and its own steam roam . The lodge was tastefully decorated to a high standard with every thing we needed even a telescope to do a bit of star gazing ,which we were able to do on the Sunday night . Will definitely return

Very modern lodge with everything you could ever need for a break. The hot tub was great once we got it up to temperature on Saturday evening - that was the only disappointing thing - that we lost the first day's use of the hot tub.

Views amazing, stars incredible, hot tub so luxurious. We all loved the little added extras, the kitchen was great and had everything we needed and the ensuite bathroom with steam room was incredible. Our little one loved watching tv while in the bath. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a peaceful break away in tranquil surroundings but with all the gadgets to keep you and the kids occupied. Can't wait to go back again!

This is the most amazing lodge. Well worth the money. The only issue we have with this lodge is the log burning hot tub. It took most of Saturday to burn logs and heat it. I do think that the hot tub should be ready on Friday for the guests arrival. This is the only reason we have second thoughts about returning to this lodge.

Was amazed with the lodge upon arrival. it was well equipped couldn't have ask for anything more. only downside: few problems with underfloor heating. Also was kept awake by humming noise from ceiling in bedroom, sounded like extractor fans.

Brilliant and special place....well worth a visit for a plush stay in clear ster country
Very relaxing holiday lodges had everything you could want or need for a holiday .
Excellent accommodation and perfectly sited in the Forrest. Quite and peaceful an ideal space for the whole family. We will definitely return to Straker Lodge ✅✅✅
Absolutely stunning lodge - complete luxury with everything you could want from a holiday lodge. Not ideally suited to tiny children though: lodge sits perched on the very top of a steep bank so we couldn't let our toddler run around outside unsupervised. Also very little for a toddler to do in the area, particularly with poor weather. Playground very small but swimming pool really good. Useful baby equipment in the chalet but it would have been useful to know what was there before hand as I ended up taking lots myself! Overall, recommended, but I wouldn't go back until the little one is a bit bigger. However for grown-ups: pure tranquility
Excellent, we look forward to going again.
Fantastic holiday. Can't wait to go back. Would definitely recommend it.
Fabulous stay at Straker Lodge. It snowed the day we were going so we weren't sure if we'd get there but we managed and the lodges looked great in the snow! We booked the hydrotherapy pool for an hour which our baby loved! Lots of wildlife around including a very friendly fox, robins, rabbits etc! Love the area and can't wait to return!
I would have liked to have been offered activities for for my children when we arrived.
