Luxury Comes to Kielder

Chalet 11

Work has begun on our first new chalet for 10 years. Set in a prime location on our 40 acre site in the spectacular Kielder Water & Forest Park, the chalet, with its innovative and eco- friendly design, will be a fabulous addition to our existing self catering accommodation.  Ground works have already started and the building will be completed by the summer. 

Phase 1 of our Realising Potential Appeal is to build five chalets and a new visitor centre where guests will be able to enjoy lunch in the Café, buy souvenirs from the shop or try our interactive climbing and caving systems.   Generous benefactors and supporters have already raised the funds for the first chalet and our campaign continues to raise the remainder to complete the development.

The chalet will have modern and contemporary facilities, state of the art kitchen, viewing gallery to take in the beautiful scenery and 3 bedrooms including a super king size en suite room, master bathroom with a spa bath and one king size and one twin room with smart TVs.

Linda Squire, Development Manager said:

“We are thrilled that the new chalet will be available to guests in the summer.  A big thank you to everyone who has contributed to our appeal”.
