 Excellent tidy site with good facilities and friendly owner who is present most of the time during normal working hours.

No toilet or shower which suits us because we have a caravan in order to use our own.

Anthony was very helpful and helped a guy who had a lovely Airstream caravan with a dodgy remote for the mover. He's a big strong lad who will be on hand to help out if required and will always pass the time with a chat.

All Certificated Sites should be like this.

Reviewer: Langsettdave 3 reviews from this member

 I hesitate to share this superb site for fear it becomes more popular.

Perfectly positioned for the Yorkshire Dales or the North Pennines, easily accessed from the A66

It has hardstandings, a seating area with platform for BBQ.

For those worrying about the composting toilet - don't !

Anthony is a gem, nothing is too much trouble - just do not drive on the grass ! Ask him about his famous relative from 70s TV

 Anthony is such a gent. His communication was excellent and whenever people needed assistance he was first on hand to help.

The site is easy to find and on arrival you are struck by how clean and well manicured the site is.

Variety of waste bins, waste water disposal bays and organic toilet, with fresh drinking water available away from waste areas.

I would stay again, so beautiful.

Reviewer: Hoedown 77 reviews from this member

 We loved this site, so peaceful, well laid out and perfectly kept. The lack of facilities was no problem for us in a motorhome.

Anthony was very helpful and so knwledgeable about the area. It was a short drive to Barnard castle and parking at the Bowes Museum was easy. We spent an enjoyable day there.

The village itself is small with just a pub and a walk along the river.

We would gladly go back there.

 Agree with all the previous reviews - a beautifully maintained site with lovely views in an excellent location either as a holiday venue or as a stop-over.

The hard standings are well defined and perfectly flat and all electrical points are close at hand. The grass is immaculately maintained.

The site has no toilet or shower but is ideal for anyone who is self-sufficient as most modern caravans are.

The owner is pleasant and helpful and the site is to be highly recommended.

Reviewer: Keklapis 2 reviews from this member

 Immaculate little site, flat EHU decent-sized hardstanding only pitches, adults and members only. Nice views. We stayed for a short stopover but would've loved to have stayed longer.

Some traffic noise from the A66 but nothing that bothered me despite being a light sleeper.

Beautiful well maintained grass lawn. Facilities clean and tidy - bins, recycling, fresh water tap, chemical disposal.

No showers. One modern compost toilet in a shed which we had to try for research purposes and was impressed with. Grey waste drain near the entrance to site.

Anthony is very friendly, helpful and a great host. I recommend this certificated site.

 Gem of a site, super clean and tidy.

Lovely views many footpaths from site.

Plenty of history, owner very accommodating.

Would definitely go again highly recommended. Note adult only.

Reviewer: Joanie 5 reviews from this member

 This is a lovely well maintained little campsite.

The new composting toilet is excellent and the grass as good as befits an ex golf green keeper.

Anthony was friendly, helpful and informative and we had a great stay!

 Excellent location with easy access. Level hard standing pitches that are a decent size. Very near the main A road, but although traffic could be heard, it was not loud.

The best kept cut grass we have ever come across. Friendly and helpful owner

There is a pub that serves food within walking distance, but because of Covid 19 we did not try it

 Great access to A66 on route to Scotland, interesting castle 10 mins away in town. Owner very helpful and working to restore his historical site very nicely kept worth a stop.
