Great site! Pitches were all flat, facilities were clean and the site was well managed and maintained. Lots of hardstanding pitches available.

We paid 19 per night for 2 adults and a baby, caravan, awning (no extra) on an EHU grass pitch.

The lady gave us a key to the disabled facility, which meant we had access to the baby change unit along with toilet and spacious (free) shower for the duration of our stay.

We had a lovely stay and would return to this site if visiting this part of the country again. We had a nosey round some other sites close by and in our view Doe Park appeared the best.

One word 'fantastic'

I can't recommend Doe Park enough and I'd advise anyone to visit.

It's really easy to find and everyone that works there can't help you enough, the facilities are all first class.

There's some lovely dog walks and it's only a short walk to the local pub. Our kids loved it and are already asking to go again which we're planning on doing as soon as possible.

It's a short drive into Barnard Castle which has everything you could need and some great little cafes and tea rooms.

We have just returned from a brilliant weekend at this site. This was my first time towing and I found the route easy, not far from the A66. On arrival we were given a good choice of pitches all of which were very roomy and flat. The whole site itself was very well laid out, very clean and tidy. We stayed over Easter weekend, 4 nights at a cost of just over 90. The showers were lovely for 20p. A hairdryer was also available.

There was a lovely walk to the village of Cotherstone from the end of the site, this took you along a lovely bit of the river. Our dogs loved this. We didn't go fishing, but next time we will.

We had Sunday lunch in the Fox and Hounds pub which was beautiful. Well worth a visit!

The Rose and Crown pub was lovely too, with a walk along cross fields then along the old railway track. This was our favourite pub, very cosy with a real fire and good food. The dogs were allowed in the bar, which was great.

During our visit all of the staff at Doe Park were really lovely, we enjoyed a guided tour of the working farm with all the animals with Alison, and my two children enjoyed feeding the lambs with bottles of milk.

All in all a top long weekend. Excellent value for money. One of our favourite sites yet!

This site is only 35 miles from our home and we stay every year at the start of the season. This gives us a chance to 'try' everything out to make sure nothing has bust during the winter.

If you want a site that is tranquillity itself, you won't be disappointed.

It's family run and wonderfully laid out with paddock type areas

If you tell them you want the 'old codgers area' you will be directed to a child free area, which suits us down to the ground as ours are now all grown up.

Couple of good pubs within walking distance, plus a village shop.

The market town of Barnard Castle is just a short drive, and it has a busy market on a Wednesday.

This was our first time in our caravan. We arrived at the site which my Husband found really easy to get to towing the caravan on the roads leading upto the site. The site was lovely. Very generous and spacious pitches and level all the water, waste chemical and bins well situated. Toilets and shower blocks again very spacious and clean. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend Doe park. And if we head this way again we would definitely stay here. There is a small post office in the village but you do have to look for it as we missed it at first and check the opening times. The fox and hounds up is within walking distance of the site, though as a family of 4 we found the food rather expensive but it was good food. Drinks were a good price. Barnard castle and surrounding shops is well worth a visit we enjoyed a great day out just around this area, also high force waterfalls stunning to look at.

We have recently returned after a brief but enjoyable stay at this excellent site.

A pleasant and helpful welcome, choice of well-kept, spacious pitches and facilities which are comparable to many Caravan Club sites, mean that we will look forward to arranging another longer stay. We would endorse all the previous favourable comments.

The owners clearly make a big effort to keep everything looking neat and tidy and not surprisingly, even in late September the site was almost full. Recommended.

Teesdale is superb walking country, and apart from the attractive villages, Barnard Castle and Middleton-in-Teesdale are both interesting places.

Top site, owners friendly and helpful. Showers, toilets etc spotless. Hard and grass pitches level. Tv reception v. good. Plenty of books magazines etc to borrow. Beautiful places to visit (too many to mention) Barnard Castle about 3 miles away - lovely pubs and shops. Also morrisons supermarket. Must visit middleton in teasdale and High Force (highest waterfall in England) Will definitely go back.

We have just arrived home from doe park we have had a lovley stay at this very nice and friendly site with the most helpful owners nothing to much trouble to them,

The facilities are very clean and they never stop making sure they are clean, there are some great walks from site with maps available from reception.

Pitches very good and with hardstanding beautiful kept grass round so nice to sit out, no long rules in fact only saw one keep dogs on lead.

The bus to barnard castle stops at the gate so no need to keep taking the car out

Will be going back for sure

We stayed here at the beginning of August for a week. It was our second visit as we also went there last year. Hard to fault this site. It is immaculately kept - the grass is lovely and green and lush. Toilets etc all spotless. Lovely information centre which also houses reception. You can borrow books etc from here. The owners are very friendly and approachable.

The area is wonderful - my kids especially loved playing in all the streams around. Cotherstone has a small shop and a pub. Barnard castle is about 3 miles away and has a supermarket and quite a few shops. We got a really nice indian takeaway and kids enjoyed their pizza from pizza cottage.

This was a real walking /playing outside holiday and we didn;t spend much on days out which was bonus.

Kids loved playing with all the children on the site and it was great being able to let them have more freedom than usual in a safe environment.

Just got back from three nights at this fabulous site. It well deserves it's four stars. All the facilities are great. The 20p showers are long enough. Everything is clean and well cared for.

The owners are very helpful both in pitching and local knowledge. They even lent us an OS map. There are miles of excellent walks with a lot starting at or near the site. We walked to Ronaldkirk on the old railway trackbed, sampled the delights of the Kirk Inn, then refuelled picked up the Teesdale trail alongside the Tees and back to the site. All wonderful and varied scenery. We plan to return.
