Bakethin Nature Reserve is the water and shore of the northern end of Kielder Water. At the main car park there is a visitor welcome point providing information, shelter and seating for visitors. There are easy access walks to Bakethin hide and connecting you to Kielder Castle, the Salmon Centre and the Lakeside Way. Follow our "Wild Walk" trails to explore some of the more special places. Both the Welcome Point and Bakethin Hide have been designed and built by Architecture Students from Newcastle University and funded with support from National Lottery Heritage Fund and Arts Council England.

You can access the river from the bank on the path between the main car park and Kielder Viaduct, but to conserve wildlife, there is no access to the lake shore in the nature reserve.
