 Fantastic site with a great great location, great and friendly staff who were more than helpful with us.

Town was within walking distance via road or forest.

 Well maintained C&MC club site within walking distance of the town centre.

Great walks on the Teesdale Way right from the site and accessible to other parts of Teesdale and the North Pennines by car.

Facilities are modern and spotlessly clean.

Reviewer: Pixie_Hez 76 reviews from this member

 We stayed here for three nights as a stopover on our way to our main holiday destination but we will certainly go back for longer in future. The site was immaculately kept, extremely clean, and the wardens were so friendly and helpful. Our motor mover broke down when we arrived and the manufacturer had to post us a new control box. The wardens were so helpful and received the parcel for us so that we didnít have to stay in waiting for the delivery.

There is a lovely walk from the site into Barnard castle through some woodland and we also had another walk in the same woodland going in the opposite direction which was also really lovely, if a little bit rugged! This is not a part of the country that we are very familiar with but we found lots of really interesting looking places that we would like to visit in the future.

Due to Covid19 the toilet blocks were limited to 3 people at a time but as we were using our own facilities, this didnít really bother us. However I did notice that there were quite long queues most mornings. I suppose this is the price you pay for social distancing!

The pitches were a good size, and those on the sites hills were well terraced and therefore flat which made setting up very easy.

This was a new site and area for us but one that we will definitely be back to!

 Nice site on the outskirts of Barnard castle, which had good pubs and shopping.

Nice big pitches and modern facilities.

Good woodland walk nearby and good location for access to Teesdale and the Pennines.

 Well equipped site, a short walk from Barnard castle centre and the Bowes museum.

Pitches at the top of the site are close to the road which is not too busy: Pitches at the bottom of the site have very poor WiFi.

Good walking nearby. Very Dog friendly.

Reviewer: Mischka 67 reviews from this member

 We spent 6 days on this small and level site. The facilities block was always clean and warm. The drying room was useful for our wet cycling gear. A fish and chip van visits the site twice a week, which we enjoyed although we would have preferred to be able to order later than the 1700-1830 he is on site.

You can walk into the town from the site in less than half an hour, using footpaths the whole way. We cycled most days and were able to find quiet roads, but be warned, it is quite hilly, especially south of the A66 towards Reeth.

(Be careful, some of these reviews are actually for the Camping and Caravanning site which is further out of town. )

 Used as a stop over on Scotland tour. C&MC site well up to standard pleasant helpful staff.

Nice dog friendly walk just off site all the way to Barnard castle (well worth a visit )

Went to see High Force Water fall Had been quite wet so really spectacular

Site fees a bit pricey.

Reviewer: Brendanr2004 594 reviews from this member

 The site is large and well maintained and offers the usual high standards of the C&MC.

The let down during this stay was in the officious and rude customer service provided by the female warden.

While we enjoyed our stay, when you are greeted with silly orders and a hostile welcome, it doesnít make a good start to a weekend away.

 To Find Site:- Whilst access to the site through the town is perfectly possible it is probably best to avoid the centre of Barnard Castle if you can. From Scotch Corner follow A66 to Cross Lanes and turn right onto B6277 the site is about half a mile out of the town on the left. From the West take A66 to Bowes and then take A67 to the town and turn left onto the B6277.

This site is about three quarters of a mile outside the charming market town of Barnard Castle. It is a memberís only site and is open from the end of February to the end of October.

The site is set out along the B6277 and is terraced, although there seems little noise from the road. There are 76 hardstanding pitches including 8 serviced with fresh water and grey water disposal.

Electric points are convenient to all pitches and are rated at 16 amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. The electric bollards have co-ax TV connections which are free to use but you need to provide your own cable.

There is one centrally situated toilet block which also includes enclosed washing up, laundry and drying rooms. All facilities are of a very good standard.

The motorhome service point is situated in front of the toilet block, unfortunately it still requires heavy drain covers to be removed.

For children there is an adventure style playground. There is site wide WiFi although not all pitches have good coverage, best to check the map in reception, fortunately the 4G signal locally was quite good so I was able to use that.

Reception which sells a few essentials and newspapers can be ordered. Next door is the information room with lots of leaflets on local attractions. A fish and chip van calls a couple of times a week.

The town of Barnard Castle is about a twenty minute walk from the site, although be warned there are some steep inclines!

A bus service passes the site entrance and is on a request basis. Taxis are also available but try and avoid school times as they are usually very busy during those times!

There are plenty of places to eat out in Barnard Castle. One of the main attractions of the town is the Bowes Museum which is well worth visit and reception will give you a discount voucher.

The site can also be used as a base for exploring the upper Tees Valley. For shopping there is a Morrisons in the town.
