Can I bring a Barbecue?
Any barbecue off the floor that will not damage the ground is fine. Please use disposable barbecues with care. Disposables are not to be used on our benches, wooden structures or directly on the grass. Use a slab, rock or the gravelled areas on site.
Always dispose of the used coals, hot or cold, in the metal bins next to our main refuse area. Or empty into the river running through the site. No contaminating products please, only ash/wood. If in doubt use the metal bins.
Can I use a Cobb Cooker?
By all means.
Do you sell Calor or Camping Gaz?
We have limited supplies and cannot guarantee stocks: this is subject to availability. Please contact us prior, if you can. Local stockists are quite a way off and are not available Bank Holidays or on a Sunday. Planning required! You must have a like for like empty before you can purchase the replacement gas.
What shops are in the area?
We have very little to offer in the local area. No off-licence and no local shops. Ensure you bring everything with you. Our most asked for items are consumbles: bread, milk & butter. We have an onsite freezer and fridge you can use. We suggest freezing such items, allowing them to defrost slowly, or if you are here for a while put them in our freezer and defrost the day before. Please make sure your items are sealed or secure before placing them in our communal fridge or freezer. Bags and a method of labelling is provided to assist.
Kielder Waterside has a small shop at reception with limited stock.
The nearest shops: Bellingham - 30 min drive. Newcastleton - 30 min drive. Both have small supermarkets and village butchers. Not 24 hours, please check village websites for details.
Can I get an online shop delivered to the site?
Yes. Asda and Tesco will deliver. We take no responsibility for your orders. This is an arrangement between you and your retail provider. Ensure you bring supplies to feed your group/family if the delivery arrives late or there is an issue.
Can I order a takeaway?
Yes, we have a limited service from the Anglers Arms. They are currently serving food for takeaway at the following times: 5.00pm - 8.00pm Mon - Sat. Sunday is currently just Sunday Dinners. [Give them a call to check] Bellingham, 20 miles away, has a chinese takeaway. Perhaps a good idea to visit on the way if you are arriving late. Please do a Google check for their opening times.
