The area has a number of significant attributes that many find irresistible. Be warned, this place really is not for everyone.
Europe's largest Reservoir: fishing from the bank or in a boat, a ferry, the views, a circular shared trail for foot, hoof or cycle can be utilised. Not for the faint hearted, it's 26 miles in total, with no short cut! If you are interested in a little gander try the Kielder Marathon, Kielder Night Run or the Kielder Water Swim.
