 Stayed here in the pouring rain, site is very well equipped.

Only slight criticism was through no fault of the site owners was the grassed areas were nearly impossible to drive onto.

The owners are so nice and approachable, in fact the weekend just gone Halloween they allowed us to park our van on a pitch free off charge for 3 hours while we visited my wife's very ill sister in Birtley.

Will definitely return when need to go that area again

 Nice site, great info on arrival of area and site.

Downside for us personally we had tents either side of us and prefer to be among caravans. (Re noise level)

Good facilities and magnificent cakes in the tearoom on site.

Thank you

 This was our first camping trip as a family (the older kids have been with Cub Scouts and us adults had been when we were younger). When we first arrived we found the owners to be extremely welcoming, walking us to the pitch and giving us a little information about the facilities and site.

When setting up, we found the ground had a lot of stones underneath, making placing pegs rather a trial, this may be down to us being located next to a hardstanding pitch though. However, once set up we were happy. We were placed amongst caravans which was a bit of a shame as there tends to be more of a social atmosphere with tenters.

The EHU was reliable and connected close to the tent, leaving plenty of our cable to position the sockets where we wanted them in the tent. The pitch was right next to the in-site road, which was a little nerve-wracking with 2 children under 5 and an older child with autism (no risk awareness) but it was a fairly quiet road so unless it was arrival or leave times, it was safe. There were various water top up points with rubbish and recycling points next to them. These were very handy as we didn't have too far to walk to use them.

On site there is a small play area which amused the kids for a sufficient amount of time to occupy them while we did the washing up after meals. There are toilets and showers which are kept absolutely spotless and a laundry room should you need it. There's a chemical waste area just next to it too. The small tearoom has a little shop of essentials in and local tourist information leaflets. We also found the owners to be extremely helpful when suggesting and giving information on what there was to do in the area.

The site is secluded, positioned around little villages which makes it lovely and quiet but also quite a way from anywhere we wanted to take the kids for a day out.

All in all, the price was fantastic given that we had a large tent, 6 people and had booked at short notice. Definitely worth a look if you want a little, quiet site to stop in.

 We stayed at Strawberry Hill Farm over Easter Weekend 2019 and had an amazing time.

Upon arrival we were greeted by Louise & Adam who couldn't have been more welcoming, Louise walked us to our pitch where we got ourselves set up. Just to point out the pitches are not 100% level so can take some time to get leveled out but there are plenty of chocks to use. We did not find this an issue though.

There is a lovely little park on site for the kids to play which is opposite the tea room and outdoor seating area, the kids all seemed to love this and they were all playing nicely together.

The tearoom is lovely and has some absolutely amazing cakes and pastries as well as serving pizzas and light bites, everything is cooked fresh by Louise and the prices are really good too. Definitely worth a visit.

The site itself is quite small but is on split levels so makes for a nice wander around with the dog, although it is near a main road there is barely any traffic noise so no issues there.

The toilet/shower block is kept spotlessly clean at all times and although the site was full we never had to queue once for the facilities.

There are a couple of dog friendly pubs nearby, one in the village of Shadforth which is called the Farmers Arms which you can walk to - Louise will give you a map, this only took approx 20-25 mins through the fields and was a lovely walk. The dog particularly enjoyed it!

We visited Beamish whilst were there which was about at 25min drive and also Dalton Park which was approx 20min drive. There is a Tesco approx 3 miles away but the tearoom on site also stocks some supplies.

This really is a lovely site which with time will only get better as Louise & Adam have lots of plans, we can't wait to visit again and see what new things are in store. Especially the new horse trailer bar :)

 Very pleasant stay at a lovely little campsite which has everything you could need. Showers and toilets clean, new play area for kids and a cake and coffee shop selling ice creams for the kids. Campsite owners also very friendly.

Less than 10 minutes drive into Durham, and less than 10 min a Tesco Extra and take away options.

 We’ve just returned from a 2 night stay. What can I say; this place is beautiful. The site is spotlessly clean, the showers and toilets are immaculate.

The owners Adam and Louise are very friendly and welcoming; both work very hard but nothing seems a problem to them. Louise makes the most amazing home baked cakes along with a whole variety of home cooked goodies in the lovely tea room on site.

Adam is always around to offer a hand if needed and we had to call on him on more than 1 occasion, tent trouble, car with a flat battery etc etc. Thanks again!

Looking forward to coming back soon

Reviewer: S-Hedges 1 review from this member

 Absolutely brilliant site, was met by Adam on arrival who was very accommodating and eager to make our stay a pleasant one.

It was our first time out with a caravan and they were very understanding with our lack of skill and knowledge, even though it had been snowing before our arrival and raining since they had no problems with us driving over the grass to get the caravan sited or with parking the car next to it,

There are plenty of bricks and blocks on the site to assist with levelling and water and waste points are well spaced with fire prevention at each point, given that it rained almost the entire time the ground drained well and the van didn’t sink.

The site is well positioned just outside of Durham, around 10 minutes away from the local Tesco and there is a local pub just under 5 minutes away.

My only negative is that we found the water temperature in the showers to be rather cold.

Will most definitely stay here next time we are up.

Reviewer: Woman camper 3 reviews from this member

 We stayed here for two weeks and made a base to visit the surrounding area.

What a gem of a caravan park.

Louise and Adam have just taken ownership and are wonderful.

A very exciting time.

The site has terraces, some flat, some slightly sloping.

There are plenty of bricks and wood to assist with levelling the units.

Electricity is metered which means you only pay for what you use.

The facilities are immaculate but do need moderately updating.

Adam and Louise have plans to develop the site and we wish them good luck in their endeavours, we will be back to see what they have done.

The site is off a fast road look out for the sign, there is. Some road noise but it didn't worry us.
