 A lovely family. A working farm where there are lots of animals for the kids to see. Great facilities. You can charge your phone!

Three miles from Barnard castle. So remote and peaceful. Surrounded by hills, fields and forest.

Lovely views. Mark was on hand for advice.

 Lovely campsite on a working farm. Nice flat area with immaculate grass.

There are some animals around the farm yard (goats, calves, cats etc. ) which is nice. Toilets, showers and washing up sink are in the farm buildings are clean.

The approach taken to COVID 19 was practical with signs, soap and paper towels.

Reviewer: Sniffhound 3 reviews from this member

 Stayed 3 nights. A very quiet pleasant site on a working farm. Owners were very welcoming especially their son Josh. Family are very busy with farm work so you do not see a lot of them. Good facilities include showers, toilets, fridge freezer and washing up sink. Quit a lot of animals and fresh free range eggs available. A great quiet place to chill out. We would visit again.

 We spent a few enjoyable days at this site. Some nice places to visit as suggested by other reviews. Facilities were good and nice views from the site. Our hosts made us feel welcome and no bother was a phrase used by Mark quite often. I got the feeling that owners were genuine and if you had a problem they genuinely meant that it was not a problem. We will go back in the future as Swaledale is a quite unspoiled part of the northern England.

Reviewer: Citygent60 7 reviews from this member

 This is a lovely quiet site within easy reach of the A66 (just a couple of minutes) and 10-15 minutes from the delightful market town of Barnard castle. A breathtaking 30 minute drive away is the beautiful swaledale village of Reeth and a similar drive takes you to the tan hill inn which is the highest pub in Britain and absolutely remote. Mark and his wife were warm and welcoming, showing us around when we were set up and nothing was too much trouble. There is plenty of space for the kids to play with a treehouse and swing. We would certainly go back in the future

 We had a two night stay on this farm, the family were very welcoming on arrival showing us all the facilities, the showers are quite new, there is 2 unisex shower rooms with corner shower, toilet, wash basin and baby changing area. Both with plenty of room and plenty of hot water. There is another building with a sink, microwave, tourism leaflets and two more toilets.

The farm is in a lovely area with nice views, from here we had a day in Barnard castle and a day at High force waterfall

Reviewer: Crystal Singer 7 reviews from this member

 Basically a large rectangular field on a working farm. Lovely views, plenty of space. A bit exposed so when it's a bit windy you can feel it.

Facilities are just right, two unisex toilets in one farm building that also has dish washing facilities and tourist info. A bit further into the farmyard and there's two unisex showers with corner shower cubicles and including toilet and hand basin. Loads of free hot water. It was a pleasure to have a shower, like home from home

No child facilities apart from plenty of open space, chance to see the animals and a wooden swing hung from a tree.

Lovely base for touring round the Barnard Castle area.

One slight problem, there were four units using the site (inc us), three of us had dogs. All kept on leashes and under supervision as per site rules. But the owners west highland terrier was free to roam & poop on the whole camp site. The dog was extremely friendly and sociable, just not cleaned up after.

Other than that one small issue a lovely site.
