Reviewer: Pault 6 reviews from this member

This was a really lovely quiet site.  Only stayed for one night.   No shop on site however we drove into Barnard Castle which was not far.   The pitches for our caravan were spacious and the toilet and shower blocks were very clean.    One thing we did do (and we wish we hadn't) was to go for a drink at the local pub the Fox and Hounds.   Loved the pub once we got there, with a country atmosphere and burning log fire.   The only problem was we decided to walk there and back along the main road,  there were no cars passing through and it was so dark with no street lights that we could not see a hand in front of us,  this goes on for half a mile to the village.   We should have took a torch.   Next day we went back (in the car) and had a beautiful Sunday lunch  Found it quite amusing when we got back home though!   Would return to this site.

Certainly this is one of the most laid back and friendly sites that we have been to. The owners provide a good welcome and do their utmost to help throughout your stay. It almost at times feels like family. The site is well ordered and tidy. The newer toilet & shower block and the older block remained spotless throughout our long weekend stay which was in the height of the summer period.
There was ample room for tents in the large field even though we were informed that the site was full over the period we were there. There was no feeling of congestion at all and no waiting for facilities. Although there was no shop onsite the owners could provide a few basics to help you through, but having said that, the local shop is only a stroll away in Cotherstone village. Perfectly placed for Barnard Castle and Teesdale, this is a site that is well recommended and one that we shall certainly use again.

Great little site and not commercialised club owners either. Plenty of space, great for local amenities. A good stop off for the lakes. All in all a good site which is well worth a visit.

Oh and cheap too. No shop on site except for eggs and milk but with Barnard Castle a few minutes away who cares.

Reviewer: Tracy + Dave 1 review from this member

We have been away every week for the last 2 months and although we usually take the caravan, this time we decided to go with the tent as we got away later than normal. So armed with various numbers off this site, I was task master to find us a pitch for the night at late notice as Dave was driving all night!
 
I rang a few and as it was last minute was not holding out much hope. All of them were full. I rang Doe Park and they too were full but relented in giving us a pitch for the one night as we were alone with no children in tow!  The guy I spoke with on the phone was really helpful.
We arrived next day around lunchtime. You have to go out through the other side of Barnard to get there but only by a few miles.
 
The site was lovely and tidy, very well ran and well maintained. The grass was even and neat and from what I studied, the caravans had plenty space for awnings and still generous space left after that. Nothing was cramped or overcrowded.
 
The washing up facilities were modern and clean at all times. No queue there.
 
The showers were clean and tidy and the ladies loos each had a sink in there too. As well as separate washing area at basins with curtain for privacy. There is a mop for mopping up after each use in the shower, which I found to be more helpful as there is nothing worse than going for a shower to find someone has soaked the place! The showers were 20p but for your 20p I got a good wash and still had time left but did not need it, so I would assume you get a long shower for your 20p!
 
There is no bar on this site, no children's play area that I could see ( We have no small children anyway) so you have to make your own entertainment. The local pub fox and hounds, does not open through the day. That is a good mile up the road and I would not recommend it for anyone with a disability. All in all a lovely site with lovely surroundings but the sheep in the next field never tire of bleating! lol. The majority of ppl there took their dogs but I can honestly say I never really heard one yappy dog.
 
This site is well suited to folk looking for a peaceful few days away with lots of lovely scenery but still close enough to the main town to be able to shop at Morrison's etc. We will go back, but next time with the Caravan. The owners were nice and friendly and we enjoyed our stay. The majority of the ppl staying there were over 55 and all seemed to get on extremely well. We would recommend this site and we will return. Thank you.

We have just returned home from this site, and It really could'nt have been nicer. The owners were very helpful, the facilities were spotless, the scenery and walks were fabulous. All in all, we had a wonderful few days, and will definitely be returning ! The strange thing about it is, the site is on our doorstep, and we didnt know it was there!

Very friendly and clean place! Quite and well kept site was perfect for our stay. One thing...we arrived late and went to the local eatery (the fox and the hound...just a ten minute walk from site) and while it was lovely was more expensive than we bargained for. Really enjoyed the meal but was a bit startled at the cheapest main being about £10! Great grub and fab pub...just a quick heads up for anyone going in unaware!
