Started the 2019 season of at this lovely site. What I love about this site is you are in the middle of the countryside but only a 10 minute walk from the village, where you can get everyday items. The site itself has spacious pitches, free wifi and a immaculate shower block. Showers are 50p, you get more than enough time for a long hot shower.

As previous reviewers have said there are some really positive things about this site. Peaceful, big pitches and new toilet block. Negatives are the narrow approach, expensive showers at 50p a shot and the water pressure is poor. The grass in the adults field was in desperate need of mowing and there was a huge mound of rubble and soil behind pitches 30-35 which meant the view was rather ugly. Finally, the bins were over flowing on the Friday when we arrived and by Tuesday were unbelievable and just made the place look unkempt.

Just spent a week here. Not been for a couple of years. But it was still great. So peaceful, excellent facilities and very friendly staff. I was on adult only site, new since the last time I was there. There is a large field for children to play on if needed. Plenty of places to visit near and far.

It is a lovely site, well organised, very clean and tidy. Flat grassy areas with plenty of generous hard standing, EHUs & TV points included. Extremely friendly reception, only don’t arrive before 1. 30pm or you will be castigated, understandably so as the half mile lane to the site is single track with very limited passing places.

Downside is the cost, site fee plus £2.50 per night electricity plus 50p for a shower. We really think these should not be extras.

Upside, it is a great riverside setting with an easy walk along the River Tees into the Town.

Reviewer: Catarinabod 38 reviews from this member

Stayed 3 nights during Easter school hols with daughter and dog. Site felt too much like a car park. Pitches at the end near the shepherd's hut were the best in my opinion. Fairly quiet while we were there, although charged for high season due to school hols. 50p per shower and no hooks or shelves, nor by the washbasins. Underfloor heating not on while we were there. Expensive wi-fi but phone signal reasonable. Pot washing room has only 2 sinks and was cramped. Good location for walk into Middleton across fields or by river. Walked to Low Force along Pennine Way from the bridge in Middleton. Excellent fish and chip shop plus plenty of other amenities in Middleton. In summary - excellent location in stunning countryside but site expensive and the little things that matter haven't been dealt with. Most expensive of the 5 sites used during our 2-week tour.

First time here as just started back up with camping and I must say 'we love It' so much so we have booked back up to go again this weekend. Owner is very friendly, everything is spotless from toilets to pitches. Only thing I wish it had is a little kids play area. There is a great river right by the site with a gate to enter the dog walk and river. Site is very child friendly I think this is helped by the fact they have a field out the way for adults only.

Just had a great 3 nights at this campsite.

We picked our pitch of T26, which was the last pitch before the shepherd but so we had no one on one side. The pitches along this wall are all on a slight slope, but it wasn't a problem.

This was a lovely campsite, plenty of room between pitches and good clean facilities with great views.

There are plenty of gates along the site to get access to the path and river. You can walk to the town along the edge of the river (a bit narrow and rough in parts, but great for a dog walk). There is also a walk over the fields to get to town or just use the road you came in on. We tried them all and it took about 15 mins ( the river walk slightly longer as you come out at the far end of the town of Middleton in teeside.

The campsite was kept clean and the owner was always around doing work. There is also a small shop that sold the essentials.

We enjoy good long walks with our dog when we camp, and this site is ideal. In fact that's one of the reasons I know we will be back. There were so many walks we 'need' to do!

Excellent stay and hopefully we will be back in August.

Great site in a fabulous location but. At £81. 50 for 2 nights it's not good value, especially when you add on the extra for showers at 50p a pop.

Constantly running out of loo roll too, so go prepared!

Reviewer: Wulster 17 reviews from this member

Spent three nights here during the latter part of May. This was a really nice site, in a fabulous location by the river. The views around are excellent. Really easy to find, access is from the edge of town (South Side), but as other reviews have said, the access road is narrow, so may be a problem if encountering another vehicle coming opposite direction. Should be ok, as hopefully caravans / motorhomes etc that are leaving, will be away before new arrivals get there. We didn’t have any issues. There is a brand new reception / shop and toilet block, with dishwashing area. Spotlessly clean. Showers are 50p, but you get enough water for that. No issue with the extra cost, as the facilities were excellent. We had a very large hard standing pitch. It was level, so no hassle getting settled. A number of pitches are on grass, but wouldn’t image any issues with them. Walking into town is no problem. Either walk along the access road, or via the river. About a mile or so, will take 20 – 30 minutes. Also, from the site, using the river, you can access a number of walks which can take you to surrounding villages or up to Low Force and High Force. Walks are pretty well signed, but would be worth getting some local maps or guide books. Although we had excellent weather, this is a good site and its location is fabulous. Robin takes care of the general day to day running of the site and was really nice, helpful and chatty. His mum and grandmother are also about the site. They were also very pleasant. Middleton In Teesdale is a nice little town and having been there before, would go back again. Also, would definitely use this site again.

Just got back today from 4 days camping. Great site with excellent facilities and views. The only negative is the price, a bit expensive to be honest but still loved it. Staff very friendly indeed. We will definitely go again when a bit warmer lol
