First time at this site, we arrived on a Friday afternoon to a very warm and friendly welcome.

They have a fish and chip delivery on a Friday which we ordered and weren't disappointed, they were delicious.

The pitches are large and very well spaced out, most have electric and the site is divided into paddocks so it's sheltered from the wind. The whole site is really well looked after, pretty and spotlessly clean. Easy access to lots of walks and it's about 15 minutes stroll along the river into Cotherstone village which has 2 dog friendly pubs and a handy grocers.

Showers and toilets very clean and plenty of hot water. 20p a shower and I never ran out of time. My only minor niggles are that it could benefit from another shower and toilet block. When the rally field is full I imagine they get pretty crowded. Also, a little playground for the kids would be great.

Really good value for money and lovely owners/staff. Overall we loved it here and will definitely be back.

A further excellent visit to our favourite caravan site. We have been visiting here for the past 16years and couldn't give it a higher recommendation. The site is clean, green, very spacious and managed very well. Nothing is too much bother for the owners or their staff. All is to a very high standard. The showers are always clean and warm. If there is a problem, once it is mentioned to the owners, they will sort it immediately. Arrangements can be made for basics to be provided eg milk, bread, eggs etc and purchased through the site office. The office holds a wealth of leaflets about the surrounding area and its attractions. A fish and chip van visits the site each Thursday and they are delivered to the site from a local pub on a Friday evening. The walks and opportunities for cycling from the site couldn't be more highly recommended. There isn't a children's play area, but there is plenty of space to play and children are well accommodated. Our children played here safely for many holidays. Locally the village has a lovely cafe and 2/good pubs. Others eateries of a very high standard are close by. Teesdale is magnificent and Doe Park is located at its heart.

Our 2nd visit to Doe Park has been as relaxing and peaceful as our 1st and is now on our 'annual visit' list. Great friendly owners and staff who work tirelessly to ensure your stay is as good as it can be and are attentive to all aspects of the park. Great maintenance of grounds and pitches is obvious and the site is very clean and tidy. Excellent access to dogs walks or rambling from site and all walks we found were well sign posted. Paying 20p for showers in the big block not an issue but avoid the small block opposite reception as the heating is non existent and the shower cubicle is very drab with only 1 hook for clothes and the shower head was ill fitting, no water pressure and water was luke warm at best. Would not take a lot of work to update this block and I do think it's the spoil of the site. Motorhome points are near to larger toilet block but not obvious. Fish and chips can be ordered from the local pub in the village and delivered to the site on a Friday which we thought was a great service, the fish was to die for, the chips were nasty but hey ho, saved me having to cook. We will definitely visit again as it fits our holiday criteria to a tea and for us, too few negatives that would put us off. Cannot rate for child friendliness as do not have children, there was no play park on site but plenty of green open space for play. The prices have increased since our last visit although we stayed at a different time of year but 5 nights last time cost me 90, this time 5 nights was 110.

Absolutely lovely. Spacious pitches, incredibly friendly staff. Facilities perfect and at 20p for a 7 minute shower, value for money.

A delightful setting so close to Barnard Castle and free from all road noise.

A veritable steal at 17. 50 per night.

A beautiful site and very well situated in the rolling Teesdale countryside. Access may be a little tight for some units as the gate from the road is not particularly wide, but there is lots of space on site with generous pitches, most of which are hard standing. The only downside of this, is that the site reminds of the Caravan Club with all the tarmac roads/hard standing. Fortunately though, the owners of Doe Park are nowhere near as officious as some of the CC wardens!

The site is very tidy and well kept by the owners. The two toilet blocks seem sufficient for the mix of caravans/motorhomes and are kept very clean. Charging 20p for the showers is a very minor annoyance, in that you need to remember every time you shower.

Walking form the site is very easy with access to the disused railway to take you to Middleton or via the river for the local village and Barnard Castle (along the Tees). The site office has marked routes for 20p and are helpful with suggestions.

The village has two pubs. The old fashioned, unspoilt and very friendly Red Lion isn't open that often but is well worth a visit. The smarter Fox and Hounds does good food and you can be sure of a friendly welcome. Both take dogs and both have decent local(ish) beers.

Another site that we will definitely return to.

What a find, a great smallish site. Easy to find and access good. Checked in and guided to the pitches, had a good hard standing pitch not far from the water point and toilet and shower block ( one of two).

Good dog walks on site and bins along the walks.

Barnard castle and shops about 5 mins drive away.

Homemade pies and puddings were on sale in reception, get them early they sell out fast, local ice cream also on offer.

We will be returning.
