Reviewer: Lindjemp 28 reviews from this member

Lovely site - all flat, set out in big bays. 2 shower blocks - the one nearest reception seems a bit older - ladies had 2 loos and 1 shower - pot washing was beside these - 2 sinks in its own wee room - even provided drainers which was a nice touch. 2nd block was nicer - 3 loos with individual wash hand basins, 2 showers (20p) and 2 privacy cubicles with curtains instead of a door.

Launderette round side of main house - 1 washer at 2 and 1 tumble drier - 1 for 30 mins, also iron and ironing board. Lovely and quiet and peaceful. Reception sold milk, eggs and orange juice. Also had loads of info on surrounding area and book swap and a huge pile of womens magazines to borrow (my idea of heaven!)

Also do a folder of menus from local pubs - we decided to go to the Crown at Mickleton (about 10 mins the opposite way from Cotherstone) and had a smashing evening meal - liked the way they did a smaller portion of most things including desserts.

My disabled daughter was extremely impressed with the disabled loo - loads of hand rails, nice big wet room area for the shower, nice and warm and with an emergency pull which again is a nice touch.

Beautiful countryside, not too far from Low Force and High Force waterfalls - lovely drive through Middlton-in-Teesdale over the moors to Alston.

Barnard Castle has loads of shops including a Morrisons, Bowes Museum well worth seeing - will definitely love to come back again some time.

We first visited this site four years ago when we owned our tent. We came back this year to try out our trailer tent, and not much has changed but that's a good thing as it was pretty much perfect last time.

The proprietors are so friendly and helpful and make you feel very welcome. We have been twice in the last two weeks and have loved it.

The site is spotless and so quiet and everyone is friendly. The facilities are clean and oh so warm on a cool night. We plan on coming back for many years to come.

Its only about an hour away from our home and its a lovely little site for short weekends away straight from work.

We have just returned from this site. Although, it was just an overnight stop, we thoroughly enjoyed the site.

We were give a choice of several pitches, all of them were excellent and and the only consideration was 'Do you want the sun on you now or in the morning.' It is very neat and clean site and very quiet.

The walk down to the village was very nice too. The toilets and shower block were kept heated and all in a very good state of repair.

In the shower cubicles, there is a curtain to separate between the shower and your dry clothes.

The 20p charge for the showers/dryer I found was adequate, however, my wife did find this a pain as she did not think the time given was long enough.

I would strongly recommend this site.

We stayed here for several nights and cannot fault it at all. From the minute we arrived the owners made us feel very welcome. What a pleasure to be on a site which has a very spacious feel about it.

Caravans were very well spaced, not like some others nowadays which try to cram in as many as possible. Toilets were always clean which is another bonus.

This site is a dog's paradise as there are many walks in the surrounding area. The old Tees Railway Line is a lovely walk on a nice day.

A short walk through the farmer's field takes you into Cotherstone but is quite steep on the way back, although there is a seat half way up ! It only takes a few minutes though so it is not too bad.

There is no shop on site, apart from milk,eggs and juice but that isn't a problem as there is a shop a few minutes away in the village for any essentials and a Morrisons Supermarket in nearby Barnard Castle.

Would highly recommend this site. Hope the owners keep it just as it is.

Wow. If you need a good, clean, friendly, beautiful site. Look no further. Loads of room for each unit, friendly staff, clean toilet/shower blocks, breath taking scenery. It has the lot.

The river is a few minutes walk, free fishing! The village is also a short walk away, I can recommend the Fox and Hounds for a meal. Good food at good prices.

Plenty to do around this area, we WILL be back - with family and friends.

Well done to all the staff. We have stayed on some wonderful sites in our 12 yrs of caravanning - but yours is the best in all ways.

Just returned from eight days at this lovely site. Very well kept,facilities great very, very clean. You can walk to Cotherstone village via the site crossing a steep field, take care after a few drinks, but better than using the road.

We did various walks from the site some 7 miles some shorter, a few finishing at the Fox and Hounds for a couple of pints of Thatchers Gold cider and a fab BLT with home made chips.Yummy.

Thanks to Alison and family for making our stay a great one, we would definitely recommend this site to anyone wanting to visit this lovely area
