Falstone sits in the shadow of massive Kielder Water earth dam, with the Kielder reservoir being the largest man made lake in Europe. Being a small village, Falstone has only a tearoom, a pub, and an inn on the outskirts, though further entertainment and dining can be found in Hexham, 27 miles to the south east.

There is a wealth of scenery to take in with much of the parish occupied by the Kielder Forest, planted in the 1920s. Falstones's situation makes it an ideal base for the various water sports and leisure facilities of the Kielder Reservoir sited at the Craneheugh, Leaplish and Tower Knowe centres.
