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.
