 Friendly couple were welcoming.

The cost for what facilities were there was expensive compared to other sites and their prices and facilities we stayed at on the rest of our trip.

 Came with our daughter & great granddaughter who is 3yrs old.

What a fantastic site spotless clean could not any fault site at all.

Toilets closed due to covid-19 but that was no problem.

My great granddaughter loved it great walks in nearby woods.

Only few caravans on site our 3yr old was the only child on site.

The couple who own the site are absolute gems.

There is a shop with drinks machine & books, games, dvd. To borrow

Ideally situated for Durham, Beamish etc leaflets in shop

We will definitely be coming back to this site.

 We came here straight from Cropredy festival. That had been windy, wet and raucous, everyone crammed in so closely you couldn't guy properly: a mass of amateur pitching threatening to become airborne.

Ah, the peace at Woodside Ridge! The well kept grass! The absolutely spotless loos and showers!

It's a small, rectangular site of about an acre on a gentle slope, well sheltered by woods and yes, a ridge to east and south. Pitches are arranged around the outside, with a play / rally area in the middle. There is a climbing frame with slides towards the bottom. The open arrangement makes the site feel very spacious, whilst there's some low planting to separate pitches. About two thirds of the pitches had seasonal touring caravans on them, with tents and motorhomes coming and going.

The views are of pleasant, undulating farmland - full of interest at harvest time - but dominated to the west by four large wind turbines. You can hear these - a sort of low, whiny hum - at night if you concentrate. I'm a bit of a spod and spent ages watching them, trying to work out the management parameters (drinking gin, natch). Lovely.

The ground is well drained but there'd been such torrential rain before we got there that it was still soggy when we set up. It did firm up nicely over our brief stay, however. Facilities are very good: beautifully clean and meticulously maintained. There's one rather feeble shower per sex in the nicely heated block.

There's a key code to get in, and then you have to pay 20p per four minutes. Seating and plentiful hooks do make this a pleasure however, with no stalking about on tiptoes worrying about athlete's foot. If you need change, just ring the bell at reception and they will be happy to help.

The single washing up sink is also fabulous: a double drainer with tons of room and good, powerful hot water. Recycling is comprehensive and nicely organised by the entrance. There are barriers on a key code for security.

The owners are a lovely family and very welcoming. Durham is very nearby and wonderful. We could have happily spent a week at this site, but on this occasion were moving on to Northumberland.

 The campsite was fantastic. We had a lovely greeting on arrival,

The facilities were spotless,

The children's play area was great, and overall we had a lovely night stay.

We will definitely be returning!

 We came to the site on Saturday 24th August with the intent to stay for 1 night, however the campsite was so good we changed our visit to 2 nights.

Facilities were outstanding - short walk from any pitch to toilets and showers. Graeme (owner) was so friendly and nothing was a trouble to him.

Walks near by were perfect for us with a dog and our 4 year old loved playing in the park with the other children, we felt really safe letting him go around the campsite on his own.

We will definitely be back

 We have just visited this site and was pleasantly surprised, the photos don't do it justice. Toilet block is immaculate in fact the whole site is maintained brilliantly.

The owners are very friendly and helpful. Also another bonus is the local takeaways deliver. Parmos not great though (obviously too far from teesside lol)

Only negative thing is, I think 26 per night is a bit steep as it is a small site and not a great deal for the kids to do. Should only really charge the adults as part of the price not 2 year old and small children.

 Great campsite. Really helpful owners. A fairly new site with loads of potential. Close to a fishing lake.

Easily to get to off the a19 near peterlee. Loads of places to visit close by but we just chilled out and enjoyed the surroundings.

As the time passed by the weekend went too quick, so we are already planning a return visit.

 My cousin and I camped here on our recent cycle trip and this really is a great site with lovely well-kept facilities. A special area has been made available for cycle-campers at the top of the site conveniently close to the loos and shower facilities ( being able to listen to music in the bathroom is a lovely touch!) The tent pitch even has a handy bike rack and the turf is good and easy to peg. I was even provided with an extension lead with which to charge my phone in the tent and the owner is kind and helpful. Everything is neatly laid out even with whitewashed stones indicating the entrance path to the loos for night time access. Thank-you for a comfortable stay and nice welcome!

 What a little gem of a site. Last minute booking with our new tent and the owners were very accommodating. Very clean site, the facilities were immaculate. Large pitches which was great for us. I also have to comment on the other campers, very friendly, the children were so polite too, they all made friends very quickly and entertained themselves, it was lovely to see. This one is definitely a keeper

Reviewer: Doncaster76 12 reviews from this member

 2 night midweek stay in late August. Owner was very pleasant and helpful. Facilities well maintained and clean. The woodside walk was a great feature for dog owners like myself. For 38 for 2 adults for 2 nights including EHU, I think it is good value.

However, there are couple of negatives. Pitch on arrival had a nice dog poo in middle which I had to clean up - after reading another review on here before I came, I know this isn't an isolated incident. Maybe check the pitches when they are departed and enforce dog rules better?

Secondly why charge for a shower? 20p is not much but would just be easier to increase pitch fees by a small amount. Charging for showers in my opinion is unnecessary and outdated.

Lastly, during my stay with maximum 7 pitches occupied the limited number of toilets was fine (1 toilet, 1 urinal and 1 shower) - but I personally would not return to this site at a weekend or peak time. To be honest, I think it is site more suited to families - kids seemed to love playing in large field in middle with kids play area.

Location wise it was great for Durham, the coast and Stockton.
