Border Forest Holiday Park   

This dog-friendly site with direct access to Kielder Forest and the Pennine Way is situated in the heart of Northumberland in the Dark Skies gold award area and ideal for anyone exploring this beautiful county…


The park has lodges, small cottages each sleeping two and at the lower end of the park there are electric hook-ups and hard standings for tourers and motorhomes by the river as well as basic camping pods.

There is a campers’ kitchen and toilets and the showers block is at the top of the park. They no longer accept tents and there is no shop, bar or restaurant on site.

You need a vehicle to go anywhere for dinner but I’d be inclined to just bring everything I need and make camp for a while in this glorious, tranquil spot. There are so many walks directly from the site and a gorgeous stream for dogs and kids – and grown-ups – to play in when the weather is right.

Do bring midge deterrent though, as they can be a menace here.

The onsite farm animals are also a bonus for families and are the reason dogs must be on leads while in the park – but there are loads of opportunities for your furry friends to run free on the nearby walks and the exercise area provided by the site.

The owners are very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the area so make sure you get some tips to make the most of your stay.

Prices range from £30 per night for two adults with electric hook-up on a hard standing pitch. The small cottages sleep two and cost from £355 for 7 nights and basic camping pods are £40 per night.
