Swing, sail, shoot and climb at Kielder Water and Forest Park

Kielder, Northumberland

Spend some quality time with your family exploring, swinging, sailing, shooting and climbing on an adventure holiday in Northumberland.

Calvert Trust Kielder is an ideal base for family members of all abilities to challenge themselves and have fun doing so. There are plenty of active things to do with kids, including high rope courses, water sports and archery.

Try the zip-wire across Cranecleugh Burn – a great adrenalin rush! Next, head to Leaplish Waterside Park and challenge each other to a game of mini-golf. Little ones can try some gymnastics and have fun dressing as pirates or musketeers whilst adventure-sore mums and dads treat themselves to a soothing massage.

If you would like some peace and tranquillity on your family holiday, the Sky Den offers the perfect location for budding wildlife-spotters and stargazers. Curl up on the balcony and look out for red squirrels or open the roof and take turns guessing constellations.
