After our 4th visit in the past 12 months we continue to be impressed by the staff and facilities of Doe Park. From the welcome to your departure you are treated with warmth and courtesy.

Very good facilities, a relaxing site even with children and set in a magnificent location that even poor bank holiday weather could not put you off.

Local pubs offer good food and drinks and opportunities to walk or relax abound.

Good shopping in Barnard Castle with a reasonable Morrisons, Coop, and several butchers and deli's.

My parents (aged 75) are returning to camping after a break of several years. They acquired a Trigano Randger folding caravan at the end of 2010 so this was their first chance for a few days away.

The site is 40 minutes from their home so it was ideal for a first trip to check everything was working as it should. We read many reviews about sites around Barnard Castle and chose Doe Park as suitable for their needs and Kirsty, the Border Collie.

My parents stayed on the site Tues to Thu nights and then I had it with my wife and two children for Fri and Sat. The access by the B6277 is no problem and access around the site is easy.

The site was said by many to be immaculate and that is no exaggeration. The grass is in beautiful condition, the two toilet blocks were cleaned three times each day, everything was kept clean even though we had a very wet and windy spell over Saturday night into Sunday.

On arrival, my parents were shown a suggested hardstanding for their trailer that would afford them some shelter and close access to the toilet block. Electric hookups are plentiful (possibly one every pitch but I didn't check). There is a designated dog walking area so that made Kirsty very happy.

Barnard Castle is well worth a visit, Bowes Museum is a great asset to the area. Close by the site for cycling and walking is the Balderhead Reservoir and those who know about Hannah Hauxwell will enjoy seeing where she lived for so many years.

There is nothing specific children but there was plenty of space for kite flying and ball play so that was fine. Having found Doe Park, I'm sure it will be a regular weekend break for us.

I consider that the overnight charge is very reasonable for the quality of site. I would recommend without reservation.

What else is there to add? Beautiful location on the edge of the prettiest village in the prettiest valley in England (in my biassed view!)

Spacious flat pitches, most with stone chippings. Watch out for the ones with trees overhanging - we got covered in horrible sap.

You'll need 20p pieces for the showers, but they last ages. No playground on site, but a large rally field ideal for football. Turn left on the railway path & follow it to the village for a lovely playground there.

No shop on site, very small range of items on sale at reception, but plenty of excellent shops in Barnard Castle a few miles away.

Railway path up Teesdale as well as many miles of footpaths for circular walks. Cotherstone has a small shop & some nice pubs. Worth booking for meals - they get busy. Romaldkirk is also picture postcard stuff with more fantastic pubs.

One thing to watch - no card payment facilities, cash or cheque only. Probably my new favourite site. Will certainly be back.

We were back at the Doe Park Site again this week and its 'as good as ever' with loads of space between pitches and great facilities in a peaceful location.

I just wanted to correct one recent review which states '2 Pubs in the village of Cotherstone don't allow dogs'. That is incorrect because the Red Lion does allow owners to bring dogs in and the drinks are amazing value i.e a small bottle of Red wine and a pint of Stella for less than 5. One and a half pints of stella 3.40. Wish it was my local. The real fire is always roaring as well.

The path to the village is along the Tees Railway path( 20 minutes) or across a field to the village in about 5 minutes walk and yes a short 50 meter stretch has no path, but don't be put off as its quite safe.

Buses pass the site entrance to Barnard Castle one an hour. ( Or you can walk along a well marked country trail next to the river Tees ) about 2 hours walk

Doe Park is a lovely quiet site surrounding a beautiful Manor house where the owners live and work the farm, It is split into separate paddocks, most pitches having hard standing and more than enough space around your unit. Although no play park or anything for children there is a large field for them to play in.

The staff are Extremely Friendly and very Informative.

The whole site is very clean and tidy with spotless Toilets and Showers (20 pences needed but they do last a long time)

There is Plenty to do around the area, Bowes Museum, barnard castle, river walks or even a bike riding across the gated fields and along a disused railway track leading to Middleton in Teesdale approx 6 miles away, a lovely picturesque route to take and there are numerous coffee shops etc in this quaint country village.

The fox and hounds pub in Cotherstone village is a must and only a short walk from the site, it serves excellent quality food.

My husband and I found this site by chance only 4 weeks ago and have just returned from a 2nd visit! Our friends went with us on our 2nd visit and it certainly wont be the last time for them either!

We Love everything about Doe Park and it will be a regular for us in the future.

Very nice site and the owners were very welcoming,well structured on first viewing though we do normally prefer smaller more informal sites (this was booked by our friends) but we soon warmed to our surroundings,(always keep an open mind), most pitches were hardstanding and there was plenty of room between.

The site was well maintained and clean at all times, recycling points were good too.

Toilets were kept very clean and showers(20p) gave plenty of time, the water was always nice and hot, there was also 2 privacy sinks in each block besides the showers.

Wonderful walks in the area, we stayed 2 weeks and still didn't get to all the lovely places around in the area.

Fox and Hounds in Cotherstone very good for meals, and it's within walking distance (over fields). Note there is no footpath on roadway.
