OK its pretty basic. Its a large level field but has awesome views towards Consett and the East. Owners are very welcoming. Used this as a stop over on the C2C, its a mile down the hill to find the route and then its pretty much all downhill to Sunderland (by bike) The field is great for walking the dog and for a small consideration you can get connected to the mains.
We live about 30 mins drive from this site and are always on the lookout for a value for money CL that is close to where we live. We are really pleased that we spotted this one. The owners gave us a very warm and friendly welcome and helped us to pick a good spot to site our van. The whole site is flat so levelling is minimal and very easy. There is a drinking water point, rubbish bin, glass recycling and toilet waste disposal. There were plenty of dog walks around the area and lots of shopping at Consett. Overall, this was a lovely, quiet site and we will be back.
Stayed here in order to visit the Elddis open weekend and also to visit Beamish etc. Access is a bit tight, overhanging trees on drive could do with trimming but should pose no problems. Bit tight negotiating between farm buildings to get onto field but again, no real problems, just take care. Electricity is available on request via long hook-up cable, but don't know what would happen if 2 or 3 caravans were demanding high power at same time! lol. Excellent views, water nearby and waste water/toilet disposal at top of field. All in all a very satisfactory site as long as you have own facilities.
Have just had 4 f the best days on this basic site for a very long time. I hope the owners are not tempted to add all mod cons. This site makes caravanning affordable. Within a mile of the site is a Picnic area and an endless walk along an old railway line. Shopping at Conset has everything you need and a 7 mile trip Stanhope is well worth it. It has a Heritage railway and on route you have scenery to die for. Hope to be back soon for a longer stay.
