Explore the forest
Kielder is home to the largest working forest in England which contains miles upon miles of purpose-built trails that make exploring this vast forest a breathtaking experience for the whole family.
The wildlife here is wonderful and you can walk along side animals that you will never see in built up areas and cities. Witness the rare red squirrel, Roe Deer, Pipistrelle bats and Osprey on your trek through the beautiful forest.

If you feel more home on water then why not take to the lake and participate in some of the amazing water sports available such as waterskiing and sailing.
There are so many sporting activities to take part in here in Kielder whether you’re into fishing, climbing, archery, fencing, tennis and many more so you will be sure to find something that suits your desires.

The sky at night
Another thing that Kielder is famous for is having the darkest skies in England which means that this is the best place to see the sky in all of its glory. Come down on a night time when the stars are out and if you’re really lucky you might see something really special up there.
See our previous post on The Kielder Observatory, it is the perfect place to explore the universe and this will be a seriously special night.
Remember that Wakworth House Hotel is located brilliantly in Northumberland so you can have days and nights out such as this before returning to our dog-friendly hotel for a friendly welcome, delicious food and a delightful night sleep.
