Take a step back in time at Sidwood in Kielder Forest
With two nearby walking trails and a picnic area, Sidwood is at the heart of this delightful part of Kielder Forest, just two miles from the village of Greenhaugh.
Formerly part of an old estate, some ancient trees and ornamental species remain from this time. This area is one of the best sites in Britain for preserved peles or bastles (medieval fortified farmhouses) and these can be discovered on the Tarset Bastle Trail. A second, shorter trail named Sidwood Trail, follows the Tarset Burn south through the old estate plantations.
