Super Site and Welcoming Owners! Highly Recommended

Grove Farm
We only stayed one night at Grove Farm as we were travelling further north. However Mark and Tom made us very welcome and were flexible to accommodate us if we needed another night. We enjoyed chatting with the donkeys in the adjacent field! Whilst we did not use the toilet and shower I am quite confident they would be spotless. One thing to note is the price is now £10 but still excellent value for a quiet and lovely location with good access to Durham and the coast. Highly recommended and would visit again if in the area

Our favourite bolt hole

Grove Farm
Having stayed before we couldn’t wait to return. Tom and Mark are such incredible hosts, nothing too much bother and full of suggestions of wonderful places to visit. This time we took their suggestion of visiting West Auckland a beautiful little village steeped in history with a lovely little cafe in the village antique shop. Last time we visited was the week before they got their girls (the donkeys) so beautiful and majestic and so sociable although that could be because of the supply of carrots we kept close by. Staying here has been a favourite of ours since our first stay last year and we really look forward to coming back again to visit a few more local suggestions of villages and events.

Superb relaxing stay

Grove Farm
Second time we have visited Tom and Mark's lovely site. Tom and Mark are exceptional hosts. Friendly and helpful as can be but not over bearing at all. The site is in a lovely, peaceful location and the toilet/shower are spotless. Very handy for Durham and area as well as the coast. Two new donkeys are a great addition to the feel of the place. Thanks Tom and Mark for a lovely stay :)))

Fantastic site with helpful hosts

Grove Farm
Fantastic site set on a farm on the outskirts of the village of Hett. Beautiful scenery and loads of space to chose from to camp. Tom and Mark couldn’t be more helpful. Pristine shower and toilet facilities cleaned beautifully I can’t praise this site enough. Plenty of public footpaths from Hett to walk along and at the right time of year plenty of blackberries and crab apples to pick. If you don’t want to go far you can always just stay on site and pet their newly acquired and very friendly donkeys.

Hidden Gem

Grove Farm
phoned in advance and arranged our stay, on the phone they explained that there was no hook up and that the shower and toilet were exclusive and that as there was no one else booked in we would be able to have the key for these. upon arrival we were met by Mark, he explained eveything and was very helpful. Tom returned to the site whilst we were talking and was equally friendly, helpful and chatty. we were able to park up wherever we wanted on the field due to being the only ones there so found a nice flat spot (if busier would need levelling ramps). the site was very peaceful and tranquil, we walked into the village although not much there (no shop or pub) but it was a lovely little village, we visited spennymoor which is a little run down but has everything you may need. we then went to Bishop Auckland which was a lovely place to visit. I would definitely visit again for a quiet get away this along with the lovely owners makes this a new bolthole for us we look forward to returning again soon.
