Why stay here ...
Our Certificated Location is in the countryside approximately three miles west of the beautiful Cathedral City of Durham (a world heritage site), three quarters of a mile from the village of Witton Gilbert (local newsagent and excellent pub grub) and approximately two miles from the Durham City park and ride facility (specific parking area for motor homes).
We believe we are the closest of the County Durham CLs to the amazing Beamish Living Museum of the North (25% discount on production of your CC membership card); also close by are the beautiful Durham Dales and Hadrian's Wall and many other family attractions. If shopping interests you we are within easy reach of the Metro Centre, Europe's biggest shopping centre and Newcastle upon Tyne (it's possible to catch a bus to both places from the village).
Our site is slightly sloping with a good entrance and has water and disposal points. We are part hard standing and have recently installed electric hook-ups at each of our five pitches. We are more than happy to charge batteries and we also have fresh eggs for sale (when the hens are laying well). Well behaved dogs are welcome as there are many country walks from the site. The best aspect of the site is the spectacular views over open countryside - if you're an early riser you may see deer come out of the nearby woods in the early morning or hear the plaintive cry of the curlew as it approaches its nest.
Walk to the top of the hill and you'll find Broom House Farm with a lovely cafe and farm shop - their home reared meat is delicious, and for children they have an Adventure trail through the woods. Also based at Broom House Farm is Fury Events where you can try Mud Buggy Racing, Quad Biking, Off Road Driving, Archery and Clay Pigeon shooting. Approximately two miles away is Diggerland, an adventure park where children and adults can drive real diggers and so much more. If you're into fishing there are many facilities within five miles, the nearest being Aldin Grange at Bearpark (approximately three miles) which boasts five well stocked lakes brimming with fish - two trout (fly only), two coarse and one competition (match only).
If you love the countryside then this is the site for you. For further information please don't hesitate to give us a call or visit our Website.
