“dawn beautiful scenery”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

A most tranquil site set amongst beautiful forestry and scenery with plenty of walks.Spent 5 nights here.Made sure we were well stocked up with food and diesel as no shops ,petrol stations nearby.Awarm welcome from the owners who were very pleasant and helpful.Roomy caravan pitches with lovely views.Facilities clean and showers had plenty of hot water.Midges a problem but would not stop us returning.

A lovely review,thank you. We are very lucky to be surrounded by the forest and the miles of walking directly off our park can be as gentle or as exhausting as you want them to be! Rural we are! Hope to see you again soon:)

Another brilliant week at Border Forest .As usual a warm welcome on our arrival.We stayed in the Heron Lodge which is warm,cosy and spotlessly clean. We have lovely walks in the forest which our dogs Reg and Doc think are brilliant .It's great to sit out and see Bubble, Squeak and Rita(the pigs)and spoil them with treats.Hot tub is a lovely extra to our stay.The peace and quiet is brilliant, the owners are warm and friendly,nothing is too much trouble,on the whole we wouldn't want to go anywhere else.Thanks for a nice stay and we will see you soon.

Wow what a gem of a site in such a stunning location! We pitched up in the camping field as two families and were delighted at the massive amount of room and space for the kids to roam against the dramatic backdrop of Redesdale Forest. The glory for us was that you really felt back to nature....rivers, forest paths, fences to climb over and farm animals all nearby. Our boys loved seeing the rare pigs and talking to the farmer. and as the sun went down we enjoyed the skyline of the black trees silhouetted against the sky as our firepit blazed away. Heard owls hooting and foxes screeching in the night....so atmospheric. The site owners were lovely too. Don't come here if you want bars and kids playgrounds, but I can't think of a better place to absorb the beauty of the Northumberland countryside. Sadly the weather wasn't kind enough for us to see the beauty of the stars in what is now a dark sky park, but can't wait to return.

Just returned from a 2 night camping visit. This site is in such a beautiful place! The surroundings are gorgeous.

On first arrival no one was at reception but on following the instructions the lovely onwer soon arrived and helped us to get sorted, even telling us about lovely walks.

There were only 3 pitches with electric hook ups, this could get cramped in high seasons, but we loved it. No one else was next to us and were situated next to the toilet block. (No smells or noise came from this)

No shops on site but again this adds to the beauty of it all. Facilities in the toilet block were modern and clean. However the washing up room i felt could have done with a clean (bird poo on some surfaces as it does not have a door). The showers were abit of a walk away and slightly cramped. They could have done with slight cleaning/redecorating but the hot water was always available! Plus free hair drying facility.

Overall this site is beautiful and the onwers are more than helpful and friendly. They are a credit to the site they have and we will definately be returning! Thank you :)

Thank you for the review and are really pleased that you would come to stay with us again.
We do live on site but are often out and about on the park checking and helping with people,chickens,piggies,ponies and the cows lol and try to get to the reception as quick as poss.
Just to point out that we have over 20 electrically pitches available and the 'bird poo' which we always endeavour to clear is just in the spring as the beautiful swallows who visit this time of year always want to build a nest in our kitchen area. We discourage this every year but it takes them a little while to remember that the kitchen is out of bounds!
Hope to see you again soon

My wife and I spent four wonderful nights in one of the wonderfully appointed chalets with an outdoor hot tub. Freezing cold going to the tub, magical lowering yourself into the hot water. Then there is the famous Kielder night sky where the stars are like golf balls. This is a treat that you just have to lavish on yourself. The owners are great and there is a lot to do and see within a thirty mile radius, especially if, like us, you like abbeys, priories and castles.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Osprey Lodge which was superb.

Brilliant camp site, ideal base for cycling. Shower block and facilities excellent and clean. There is a sheltered wash up place and also a fridge and freezer to store your food. Owners are soooooo friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Site is not far from Kielder Water and Forest Park which has some amazing cycle trails. Would def recommend to stay here it is fab. If you stay after May only tip is take plenty of mosquito spray. Going back at Easter and cant wait.

Just back from three night stay at the Osprey lodge. WOW! The view from the lodge is breathtaking - overlooking a river and beautiful woodland area with huge trees. The lodge itself is lovely. Very clean and beautifully furnished with co-ordinated plum and cream decor/soft furnishings. Gorgeous wooden floors. The hot tub is fabulous and very private directly overlooking the river - it doesn't get better than this!!!!! Lovely bark screening on one side gives total privacy. Luxury wicker outside furniture. Deck is fully enclosed so safe for dogs and young kids. Lodge fully equipped with everything you need, even tea bags, sugar, dishwasher tabs, which we've never had in other lodges. Fabulous walks on your doorstep - truly spectacular. Osprey and Goshawk are identical but I personally think Osprey is in a better more private spot. We are going to return in December this time without kids and dog!

Room Tip: If you want a two bedroom lodge go for the Osprey, it has the most private hot tub.
