Reviewer: Hoedown 55 reviews from this member

 This is a well-laid out peaceful site. 5 gravelled hard-standings used mainly by motorhomes as well as a large field with about 15 grass pitches.

Water taps nearby, as well as a wash-up sink and dump facilities.

The only downside was the rubbish/recycling bins were quite a walk back down the lane so we saved ours to dump on the way out.

Facilities were still not open owing to covid restrictions so can't comment on them.

Lots of walks in the area which we did not try out due to the rain.

At 16 pn this is a good cheaper alternative to the club sites across the road.

Reviewer: Banjo3 1 review from this member

 Without doubt the quietest site we've ever stayed on!

Site is immaculate, we hadn't booked, but the owner Ann was very pleasant, laid back and helpful.

Can't fault it, lovely area, nice half hour walk to Barnard castle.

No facilities on site for youngsters, but ours have flown the nest, so that suits us fine.

Very reasonable rates too, Thank you Ann ( and daughter!)

 If you find anywhere more perfect, let me know.

Lovely location, best showers I have seen anywhere for years, owner very laid back and non intrusive.

Highly recommended.

Reviewer: Little Red Van 15 reviews from this member

 A lovely, well-maintained, quiet site in a rural location on a working farm. Everything was spotless, including the toilets and showers, which were hot and powerful, with lots of room.

We cannot think of any negatives for this site, which was also great value for money.

 This is one of the best sites we have stayed at, we travel her from Newcastle on a regular basis.

The site is immaculate re cleanliness and surroundings, lots of well maintained plants an shrubbery. Loads of space around the pitches and fabulous self contained showers.

A pot washing area is also available. Great owner who stands no nonsense, Don't bother coming if your after noise or parties.

Reviewer: Probb1955 2 reviews from this member

 The site has all the amenities needed and was very clean and tidy, the staff were friendly and helpful. It is a very quite site with ample room on each pitch.

The main town is only a 5 min drive away with all the sights.

The only slight downside is that it is quite tight on the single track in and out to the sight, I sent the wife ahead to make sure it was clear.

 We stayed for one night on our way back home. The site is very clean with excellent facilities and remarkably cheap, it was 16 for a pitch with electric.

The toilets and showers were very clean and the showers (unisex, with large separate cubicles)were also larger than usual which makes having a shower pleasanter.

The site is a short drive or a lovely 30 minute walk through fields, woods and along the river to the town centre.

The location is only marked down from 10 as a shorter walk to the town centre would be good. Customer service was N/A for us.

 We arrived to a warm welcome and beautiful pitch with lovely planting and grassy areas, we were sad to leave. It was private and relaxing.

There are good walks from the farm.

Showers and toilets were clean and tidy.

It is a lovely area to visit.

 Lovely site. The lady owner was very friendly and helpful. It is a working farm but the site beautifully clean and cared for. Brilliant showers.

Very reasonable and good value for money. We will definitely be going back. A peaceful site in the countryside.

Reviewer: Edmund Ridsdale 8 reviews from this member

 Great hideaway site, with good owner who is unobtrusive but friendly.

Lovely farming surroundings, with sheep in fields all around.

Lovely showers and toilet block.

Lots of lovely circular walks shown on photo copy map. And walking distance to town. A fair walk though.

Bowes museum near Barnard castle and a must see place.

Will come again to this very tidy peaceful site as soon as possible.
