Kielder Water & Forest Park is home to the largest man-made lake in Northern Europe. With over 250 square miles to explore, a host of wildlife and all kinds of outdoor activities to get involved in, it's a fabulous place to take a holiday. In the heart of the park, you'll stay at Straker Lodges, a group of luxurious two-storey holiday homes with whirlpool baths and eco-friendly hot tubs.

Go hiking, horse riding, devote whole days to walking nature trails, hop on your mountain bike and take part in a range of adventure sports. When you've finished, there's a relaxing indoor hydrotherapy pool, a sauna and sensory room and an on-site aromatherapist. For snacks try the Kielder Castle Café at the Visitors' Centre and for a fine Sunday lunch, visit The Anglers' Arms in Kielder Village.

These fabulous lodges are stunningly laid out over two floors and boast a super king sized double room with en-suite shower, a king sized double room and one twin bedroom. The bathroom has a whirlpool bath and deluge shower, and there's also a cosy log burner, a mezzanine seating area and a large terrace with an eco-friendly, wood burning hot tub.

Northumberland is famed for its dark nights - the skies are darker here than anywhere else in the country - so you can sit back and really enjoy star gazing. The Park is a haven for wildlife so try and spot one or more of the Kielder 'Super Six' - ospreys, red squirrels, pipstrelle bats, roe deer, salmon and otters.

Our Top Tip
"You can also sail Kielder Water on The Osprey Ferry, a 60 seater motor cruiser."

This is an amazing lodge with lots of features and gadgets. The views are lovely during the day and even better at night with clear skies.
The lodge is extremely spacious and has everything you need and more.
Lodges were well spread out and very private, we didn't hear a thing .
The only reason we haven't given 10 is there was a smell of drains in the main bedroom and the bedroom lights flickered on and off randomly during the night.
The booking form does warn you the hot tub may not be ready for use on the first night and it wasn't. This is the first time we've experienced this.
We had a take away one night and the food was lovely, plenty of it and reasonable price.
The odd negative we have put were reported so hopefully they'll be put right.
There is an activity centre a few minutes drive away that has a pub which serves lovely food and a small shop that sells essentials.
We would definitely recommend this lodge and hopefully will return in the future.

Fantastic retreat in the middle of nowhere. Log fired hot tub for aching legs at the end of a 20 mile hike. Local pub The Pheasant for Sunday roast, fantastic break away in the countryside.

The best stay ever! Will be returning as soon as possible. The Perfect Mini Moon break for us Newlyweds :)
Fantastic lodge, fantastic place and fantastic staff
The Straker Lodge is the only one of its kind on the site. It is hugely comfortable, impressively equipped and has uninterrupted and panoramic views over the valley, awesome when it snows. There is good walking right from your door, you couldn’t ask for a better location. The hot tub is wood fired and takes several hours to heat, I would recommend paying for it to be pre-heated, especially if you are there for a short stay. We made the mistake of banking it up to stop it going out overnight and it was too hot the next day, be warned! The staff at the Calvert Trust were first class, excellent customer service. There are numerous activities which can be booked and meals can be taken in the centre if required. All in all we had a wonderful time and would love to return in the future. One small negative, the broadband is very slow and there is no phone signal, you may of course consider that a bonus.
Amazing lodge! Everything was fantastic and we loved every minute of our stay. Only minor complaint would be the hot tub was told would take 4-8hours to heat up but took a day and half and was cold again by the next morning.
Excellent lodge with fabulous facilities, hot tub was great in the snow. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and were a credit to the Calvert Trust.
Fantastic lodge, the best one we've ever stayed in. A really relaxing break.
We had a brilliant time - just relaxing and enjoying the stars from our hot tub!
Fabulous holiday and a great location. Would defiantly visit here again.
Amazing stay! Wonderful staff! Couldn't of asked for more. Thank you Calvert trust kielder.
Absolutely fabulous lodge and surrounding area. The lodge was emaculate and to a very high standard.
Fantastic stay only problem was the hot tub member of staff came on the Friday night and said it would be ready for 8 o’clock Friday night which wasn’t phoned up and whoever we spoke to said we would have to wait till the next day said goodnight and hung up very rude but apart from that we really enjoyed our weekend
