Kielder Water and Forest is home of the largest man-made lake in Europe and the largest forest in England. It is an oasis of nature, water and outdoor activities and it is also rather spectacular too. At Kielder, you’ll find great trails that are purpose-built for walking, cycling and horse riding. There are dedicated tracks for mountain biking and a 26 mile long Lakeside Trail that circles the lake. You’ll find native red squirrels here, ospreys, deer and water voles. There’s fishing here, as well as sailing, canoeing and water skiing. And as if that isn’t enough, once darkness falls Kielder is the best place in England to view the night sky. There are a huge number and variety of things to do in Kielder, the challenge is fitting it all in!
