We are a 3 star accredited independently run site. Nestled in the heart of Kielder Forest we are the remotest site in England.

We offer pitches for camping, motor home and touring caravans, four pods and two static caravans. [Pods sleep up to three adults, or a family with two adults and children. Our statics have two bedrooms each: a twin and a double] Due to the nature of the site and it's location there is no vehicle access at all onto the grass. Camper vans, vehicles with roof tents, motor homes and touring caravans can only be pitched on hard stands. There is ample room around most hard stands for awnings.

With the forest on our fringes you have the opportunity for long quiet walks, cycle rides that can keep on going, not forgetting our many miles of dog walking. There is a dog friendly pub and tea rooms a few minutes walk away near Kielder Castle.

The Kielder Water and Forest Park has an art and architecture trail that follows the 26 mile walking and cycling route around the reservoir. Be warned, there are some undulations. How about hiring an electric bike from the village to enjoy the tour? Or a mountain bike to take advantage of the varying bike trails that head off into the forest and around the local hills and into Scotland.

Stargazing! We are located in the centre of a fantastic Dark Sky Park. With wonderfully clear views of the night sky from your pitch. We practice a low light policy on site ensuring no light pollution for the area. And for good reason, as the famed Kielder Observatory is just on a hill near the site. To visit, see our website for info. Click to view. [Booked visits only]

We want you to relax and enjoy this unique environment and ask for visitors to respect our quiet period from 10pm at night until 8.00am in the morning. This is not a site for late night celebrations. From 10.00pm music off and voices down; you will find that during the evening, on this site sound can travel.

Being so close to the Scottish Border you can explore some of Scotland's attractions too.

The site can offer a number of facilities, found below. However, grocery outlets and shops are quite a drive away, so please come prepared and research is well advised. We have an unmanned, chip and pin fuel station minutes away in the village of Kielder. This is a not for profit establishment set up and run by volunteers within Kielder Ltd. No other fuel stations for over 20 miles.....in both directions. There is no adjoining shop so don't pester the 'Made in Kielder' business residing there for oil and water!

Kielder Campsite requires payment in full when booking, with cancellation terms available up to two weeks prior to arrival. We always advise visitors to take holiday insurance on costlier bookings. [Please take time to read our terms and conditions]


We look forward to seeing you.
