Date of Visit: November 2021 Unit:  Motorhome
Nights stayed: 3 Travelling as:  Retired couple
Reviewer: Paul@Bank 138 reviews from this member

 Site is located of the busy (and noisy) A1M, usual C&MC standard for facilities, good sized pitches and good TV reception.

Downside is access to Durham without a car. The A690 acts as a main dual carriageway into Durham from the A1M and has no footpath, a meandering riverside walk does exist by the none traffic) route to the riverside involves a good mile walk before accessing the river.

Alternatively a Park & Ride is located on the opposite side on the A1M again no footpath, so this involves crossing the dual carriageway (twice), and the access route to the A1M (twice) with lots of fast moving traffic.

Having said that the riverside walk through the dense forest is delightful and Durham itself is a little gem. The cathedral is a must visit, plus another riverside walk in the town centre.

Overall handy site as stop off travelling North or South on the A1M, but constant traffic noise, and no really convenient to visit Durham without a car.

 Lovely site, clean toilets and showers.

 Just off the main A1/M1, top of the slip road, a couple of hundred metres and you are there.

Really well placed for stopovers travelling North or South or for visiting Durham.

We had booked on for 2 nights but we cancelled the 2nd due to constant road noise from the A1/M1. For others it won't be a problem and we spoke to others who said was worth the noise for convenience to visit Durham

Have to say that the site wardens are the best we have come across on CAMC in striking a mix between dealing with Covid restrictions and running a caravan park. They have closed some showers and loos for social distancing but nowhere near as many as some other sites. They are cleaning twice a day but not needing to extend cleaning times as other CAMC sites are

Shop on site open and stocked, again unlike other CAMC, it really felt more like a regular campsite due to the efforts and attitude if the link lovely wardens.

There is a really nice dog walk that takes you down to the river from where you can walk into the city.

Reviewer: Catarinabod 62 reviews from this member

 OK for a stopover as straight off A1. Difficult road to cross to get to Park & Ride.

Pleasant 3 mile river walk into Durham but can be very muddy.

Some pitches need a longer cable for electric so we had to move.

If the Caravan Club were more flexible with the pitching of small campervans, this wouldn't have been a problem.

Reviewer: Ct955 50 reviews from this member

 Friendly welcome to clean and tidy club site. Well kept standard club facilities. The site is close to A1 so there is some traffic noise, a steady hum so you get used to it.

Handy for park and ride to Durham and about 30 minutes to Newcastle. Loads to see and do within an hours drive including the coast and Hadrians wall.

Dog walk on site and riverside walk just off site. No local amenities but basics available in reception.

I'm sure we will return as we have family in the area.

 Easy to find off m1. Nice size level pitch usual cmc facilities.

You can hear traffic but didn't bothers us but some might find it annoying. The reason we wouldn't come back to site other than stop over is trying to get across road is to dangerous.

Road too busy and travelling too fast. Got the bus twice that involves crossing road 3 return.

Reviewer: DJMotorhomer 48 reviews from this member

 Stayed here for 3 nights to visit Durham and en route to Northumberland. Well laid out site and very friendly wardens. Facilities are very good. As previously stated there is road noise from the A1 but not intrusive.

Very quiet in December. The park and ride is a 20 minute walk away but you have to cross the busy A1 roundabout. 2 each return and senior bus passes are accepted

 Very conveniently situated for motorway. There is a steady rumble from the motorway traffic, but it's steady so not difficult to ignore.

Open all year, so very handy.

Possibly not a site to stay on for your holiday but great for touring.

Immaculate as all CMC sites.

Reviewer: Paolo999 8 reviews from this member

 Stayed at this site to visit the city of Durham. The site is very close to the A1(M) and The A690. It is pretty noisy from background traffic. Pitches are quite small. Durham centre is more than 2 miles away. I felt the site was more of a transit site for those driving North/South than one for staying to visit the city.

You can walk from the site along the river to the city centre about two and a half miles. There is a park and ride very close by on the other side of the A1(M). It is closed on Sundays and Bank Holidays though. If you get there before 1100 on a Sunday or Bank Holiday there is lots of free parking on the outskirts of town.

The facilities were all good as you would expect from a Caravan Club site. At almost 29 per night over a Bank Holiday weekend I felt it was too expensive for the above reasons.

We did receive a warm welcome from the site staff.
