Part of theMagnificentCollection


out of 5

The stunning and multiple award-winning Kielder Waterside, which sits within our exclusive new ‘Magnificent’ collection, offers one of the very best shorelines of the largest man-made lake in Northern Europe. This amazing park provides you with the opportunity to relax under the darkest skies in England whilst enjoying the tranquil setting of your chosen accommodation.

This amazing location offers so much that you will never be short of something to do. From taking the opportunity to relax and unwind by cosying up in one of the traditional log cabins near the lake, to surrounding yourself with nature in one of the modern luxury lodges in the heart of the forest, there is accommodation to suit all, whether you’re a couple, friends, families with children or if you have pets this is just the start of your ‘Magnificent’ Kielder adventure!

For those who want to indulge in relaxation, why don’t you try out the collection of spa treatments, enjoy the steam room and sauna or just take a leisurely stroll along one of the nature trails. You could even spend your day on 2,000 acres of water with a hired fishing boat and rod. Kids also have an abundance of choice and can enjoy the mini and disc golf or join in on the junior activities for 3–7-year olds. There is a games room and children’s adventure play to keep them busy for the duration of their holiday; what more could a parent ask for?

For those seeking a bit of action there is a range of activities you can try such as following the mountain bike trail (bike hire available) or try your hand at a variety of target and water sports. You can even have a go on the Segways which are great fun!

When it’s family time you can all head across to the Bird of Prey centre and watch live flying experiences with over 60 birds, or you can all relax together and enjoy a meal in The Hide Bistro, a superb family orientated gastro pub which is a must!

Throughout the year Northumberland and Kielder have multiple events so keep an eye out for those but the area itself offers a great opportunity to discover and explore amazing landscapes such as the National Park and Hadrian’s Wall, as well as historic sites including castles and abbeys which hug the Scottish Borders. If you’ve never been to Newcastle, you should take the hour’s drive and experience the wonderful architecture, culture and renowned nightlife, it’s certainly somewhere that will stay long in the memory.

If you are looking for a family holiday that provides the wow factor, fills you with joy, makes you smile and will leave you with lifelong happy memories then there is no better experience than Kielder Waterside. Well, it is ‘Magnificent’.
