 Lovely easy check-in. No choice of pitch we were given a number on the new part. Big pitches on large gravel, each with its own water tap and ehu (but no grey water drain) and a large grass area between pitches.

Brand new facilities block, kept really immaculately clean. Loos and showers in separate rooms. Showers are push button and there isn't a shelf for soap, shampoo etc but you can use the high windowcill.

There are several areas which are screened off from each other, some are seasonal and some statics, tourers are in a separate area. It's a big site but feels more intimate with the screening.

There are loads of good nature walks / dog walks on site, plus the fishing lakes. We managed a good hour walking the dog without leaving the site walking through the wooded areas and footpaths.

Only negative for us was grass cutting. They don't collect so damp grass treads in everywhere. After cutting a guy came along with a leaf blower and blew the cuttings from the road into the hardstandings which made it twice as bad on a damp day.

We were in Northallerton on market day, Thursday, great market with lots of local produce, well worth a visit.

 This was our 2nd time staying at Otterington for our annual family camp. We have campervan, plus caravan & 3 of the POD's.

Much busier this year than last year due to the extra pitches.

Easy check in, we arrived all arrived at different times & days.

Electronic key fob needed to get through barrier but £5 charge has benn dropped due to Covid.

Site was spotless, toilets & showers clean & bright. Great walk through the woods & around the ponds.

Looking forward to a visit in 2021.

 Really happy with our stay here. Very organised, very well kept and clean.

Lovely walk round a well kept pond and country walks, lovely and quiet. Nice little country pub 2 mins walk away. Ideao spot to get out and visit local area.

Definitely will return.

 Really nice well kept site. Pitch allocated on arrival. We stayed on the new side which was hard standing with water and electric hook up at each pitch.

Toilet block was superb. Very modern and clean.

Nearest pub was 800 yards away, limited opening from 5pm.

Had a walk around the fishing lake. Peaceful and tranquil setting.

A really nice 3 night stay. Thank you

 Just after lock-down ended we stayed at Otterington Park for the first time. This site is in an excellent location near to Northallerton and is easy to get to and find.

Roads in are excellent and the park itself is easy to navigate and the pitches are wide and easy to set up on.

We were met by a number of staff and I found them to be friendly and extremely accommodating, very prepared to go that extra mile if needed. In fact if there was a need now for higher customer standards it is clear that this site sets the highest level in so many areas.

Facilities were truly immaculate with a lot of thought going in to social distancing. Large field dedicated to dog walking at the entrance to the site meant that both our big dogs were and remained happy throughout our stay. A football pitch and two children's play areas meant that all the family was well catered for. There is a wonderful lake and the whole site feels both peaceful and spacious.

There is some noise from the nearby electrified train-lines but this didn't really bother us and it wasn't intrusive in any way.

All in all I wouldn't hesitate in giving this the highest recommendation (for the first time ever!)

 Tariff for the Spring Bank weekend was £27. 50 per night; If we had used our awning that would have been an extra £2. 50 per night. I noticed WIFI was £5 for 2 nights; I didn't bother with it.

Quite a large site, separate area for statics & 2 areas for tourers; we were in the smaller area which seemed to be for mature couples and couples with young children, so quieter than the larger area. In this section, access to the hardstandings didnít mean crossing the grass. Generous sized pitches.

We found it very peaceful! (Frequent trains run alongside the site but didnít bother us). Children rode round on bikes/scooters so be sure to stick to 5mph speed limit!

The facilities block was opposite the entrance/exit barriers (£5 refundable deposit for swipe card): the reception/shop, then a small laundry room (didnít use) & then the toilets & showers. Entry to these is through one door; 3 ladiesí toilets & sinks to the left & gents to the right(my husband said 2 toilets, 3 urinals & 3 sinks) which for the size of the site didnít seem much, but there is a separate door next to the tourist information racks on the wall (near the ladiesí toilets) which leads to 4 unisex shower rooms. 2 of these contain a toilet as well as a sink & shower, whilst the other 2 contain a shower & sink only.

All the shower rooms are a wet room style; the showers are the fixed height, unadjustable variety with a push button; water comes in bursts of about 10 seconds. The water is hot but not too hot. There is a sturdy stool to sit on & a couple of hooks on the wall; perhaps could do with a couple more. There is no shelf for toiletries but you can put them on the sink. For those with small children or who prefer a bath, there is a bathroom containing a toilet, sink & small bath with a moulded seat (Fawlty Towersí Alice Richards springs to mind: íCall that a bath? Itís not big enough to drown a mouse!í)

There is also another shower/bathroom directly opposite the toilet block entrance, for which you have to ask for a key in reception; I presume this is for the disabled. Around the side of the block are 3 sinks for washing up, with drainers for each. These are under a roof but otherwise outside. We didnít always use them as quite a way from our pitch if it was raining, so used our caravan facilities.

A giant draughts set was next to the reception area & for those with children, a separate play area seemed popular, as was the 5-a side football pitch opposite.

We walked around the fishing lake (nobody fishing at the time) & it was very quiet; just the wind in the trees, the birdsong Ö and the trains! Part of the nature walk runs parallel to the railway line & there is a picnic table at the end, so trainspotters can enjoy to their heartís content!

We picked this site for a long weekend & not too far from home; it has passed the test & we hope to visit again in the future.

 Been coming here on and off for years, what has taken place since I was here last is amazing, can't wait to see the pond get settled in, this is a really well run campsite.

Everything about our weekend stay here was faultless, the staff the other campers, oh and the weather was a real bonus.

Would I stay here again, yes, I could live here!

Reviewer: Halcyon20 1 review from this member

 This is a lovely well maintained site, the showers and toilets were all very clean, it has a field just for dog walking and a good play area. It was very quiet and peaceful on our visit and we were given a warm welcome.

There is a local pub a few minutes walk away. We were not able to get out of the site to leave at 8. 30 am as the barrier was down and we had to wait until 9am to be let out, we gathered that other people had swipe cards to get out but we were not given one, so be clear if visiting on being able to leave the site.
