Storm Arwen

Sadly Kielder Forest was hit very badly during Storm Arwen. All visitors are being asked to stay away for their own safety. The site is closed. We will update in our news section and on social media channels when it is safe to return.

Lakeside View


Located at the south side of Kielder Dam adjacent to the C200, the first view of Kielder Water & Forest Park for most visitors appears suddenly and provokes many a “wow” reaction. A small parking area on the lakeside allows you time to take in the enormity of the landscape and the big sky. This is also a good location for viewing Kielder Dam and assessing the scale of the building project which produced Northern Europe’s largest man made lake.
