Westgate Camping Site is a small site set in upper Weardale (area of outstanding natural beauty). We have 16 hardstandings with an area for tents (hook-up facilities available). The river wear runs past the site and there is a ford where children can play (cars also use the ford so children must be supervised.
Please note we only take couples and families only (maximum 3 couples together). We do not take groups (the organised Duke of Edinburgh Awards are an exception).
Please contact me on the telephone number above and I would let you know what availability I think there will be - I am happy to reserve you a place. Please ring after 18:00 on an evening to catch me in.
