Back to the 80s

The area has a number of significant attributes that many find irresistible. Be warned, this place really is not for everyone.

So you're going to Kielder are you... what about the midgies? (Part one)

Whilst I have been known to stand my ground against the odd brown bear whilst in the Rockies or to stare down a troublesome tiger in Bengal, one beastie I will have nothing to do with is the Kielder Midge.

Hanging around in swarms these little tinkers will have you pleading for mercy within a matter of minutes.  However, I will let you into a little secret.

Are you ready? You may wish to sit down.

How to get even with Mrs. Midge and the black magic art of 'Midgery'

 After reading the first instalment of our midge shenanigans, I'm sure by now there will be a number of readers foregoing Kielder, Travelodge brochurethumbing through the Travelodge brochure looking at locations along the M1 [Southbound] as a fitting alternative to any encounters with our very own: 'wee beasties'.

Fear not brave traveller to the wild northern climes of Kielder....and beyond. There are a number of things you can do to overcome any assault by said Midge.

 But first, never one to pass up on a story, here's a little something I forgot to mention, quite a big thing really as so many people come to Kielder, with their dogs.

What a few others have to say...

So there I am slaving away during our [Brief?] summer, unable to put finger to keyboard without a phone ringing or a cup of tea distracting my budding career in procrastination. Rather than try to do any blogging in the summer I felt it better to take the pressure off and save my blogging for later.

And then I did it, I really did. I thought of a cunning ruse! I was amazed at the simplicity of it.....I will get other people to tell me, and the world, just how amazing Kielder was. And not just Kielder, but Kielder Campsite to boot.

Pray tell! I hear you gasp. Well, read on and be amazed!
