 I wouldnít describe myself and my husband as a young couple, or mature. Middle aged with a dog fits the bill best.

This is a good quality site. Easy walk to village, about 1km from site. Lots of beautiful scenery and dog friendly walks. The river tee runs along side with good fishing, Iíve been told as I donít fish myself.

The village of Middleton has shops, fantastic fish and chips, small friendly tea rooms, free toilets and parking. Not far from Low or high falls water falls.

Campsite in my opinion 10/10.

Clean, well maintained, spacious, clearly signed, new toilet block, hot showers 50p,

 Just returned from a quiet relaxing weekend at this lovely site. This was our first visit and will not be our last.

Set in wonderful countryside with lots to see and do - lots of good walking, High Force, numerous farm shops within half an hours drive and close to Barnard castle and Richmond.

The site was spotless, including the toilets and showers. The pitches were large and it was nice being able to choose our pitch. We picked next to the river and found it was level and the perfect spot.

The shop is stocked with a variety of goods including flies and specialist leaders, from a respected angling guide, for fishing the river which is free. As an angler I was impressed that I could walk a few yards from my tent to fish.

The owner is on the go from morning till night, friendly and helpful and visiting each pitch to make sure all is well and to provide campfires if required. Make sure that you pay attention to the rules on arrival and leaving times to minimise issues on the narrow lane especially at busy times.

It wasn't an issue when we were there and there is passing places to pull over if necessary.

We enjoyed our stay and look forward to going back

 Returned for another stay at this lovely site this time staying on the family side of the site (normally we are on the adults only) as our daughter came as well with the grandchildren.

Once again a warm welcome from Robin on arrival and the pitches which were next to each other were perfect and large.

The kids loved the riverside walks into the town and dam building in the river.

Once again had a great time and will return next year.

 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.

Reviewer: Samstevenson 10 reviews from this member

 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.

Reviewer: Teenoso 8 reviews from this member

 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 donít 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 50 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.

Reviewer: Mattelli 9 reviews from this member

 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.
