Looking to book for the Dirty Reiver 2017? Click onto: http://kieldercampsite.co.uk/events/dirty-reiver-2017  Be advised: All hardstandings,electrical pitches, pods and statics are fully booked. Limited tent space only.


This rustic campsite is situated in the remotest village in England. We have 22 hook/ups for caravans, motorhomes, campers and trailer tents. Our tent field has room for over 40 tents. We have a four berth and six berth static caravan and four pods. (Our pods can sleep up to four people).  Due to three extremely wet seasons we have increased our hardstand capacity. This has reduced our electric hook up capacity for tents.

We are at the northern tip of Kielder Water.  An ideal base for cycling, mountain biking, walking and the opportunity to view our elusive wildlife.


We are situated just outside Kielder Village with direct access to all of the mountain bike trails and forest walks. Kielder Castle and the Minataur Maze are nearby. There is a village store supplying basic items and a local pub and restaurant. The Castle hosts a licensed Tea Room. [The site, pub and tea rooms are dog friendly] No extra charge for your pets.

The nightlife......look up and view the stars (Weather permitting) from your tent, pod, camper or caravan. Soak up the remoteness and enjoy your time away from the ebb and flow of everyday life.

We look forward to welcoming you to our part of the Northumbrian Countryside. Why not visit our Things to do page which offers you the opportunity to plan your stay.

We promote Kielder Village and the surrounding area. We trust that you embrace this concept and support our local businesses during your stay. Your support allows Kielder to  offer services throughout the year.
