Basic site.

The Bungalow
Got a friendly welcome from the owner. It's very close to park and ride which is handy for Durham. £10 a night, which is well worth it. Next to a main road, so there is noise during the day. It didn't disturb us at night though. Next door is a removal firm which is owned by the same people and the top of the CL is used as a car park for the staff, which makes it feel cramped. There is also a public footpath running through the site, so a couple of times, random people came walking through. The lady told me she will be putting up prices next year. If you want a peaceful, private stay, this isn't the one. I won't use this one again.

Very basic

The Bungalow
Stayed in middle of June 2022 found the owner very helpful it was very difficult to get level as it is on slope. Very handy to get into Durham with the park and ride very near. Stayed over a weekend and were very surprised on monday morning to find 5 vehicles parked near our van I can only presume this were the staff for the business next door. Otherwise worth the £10.00 but would not return

Small Site Spoilt by Overcowding

The Bungalow
Entering the site was difficult as the gate was closed and the rear of the caravan didn't clear the road whilst the gate was opened. The welcome was fine and we were given the option of where to park. We were the now the fifth van on site which filled the small site of a quarter of an acre site. The trouble started when a sixth van arrived the next day. The owner placed them between us and an adjacent caravan filling the gap and then asked us to move our hook up lead to another too far away for a standard lead to reach The owner didn't seem to understand that there is a five van limit and that there is a recommended distance between outfits to avoid fire risks etc. The resolution to the problem was to move the new arrival to the bottom of the site between two other camper vans to share the hook up point , but the three outfits were only a few feet apart. Having said all this, the site is conveinient to Durham and all the attractions and there is a bus stop outside the site with a 3o minute service Pity the site is not better managed and has obviously seen better days and could do with a bit of TLC.

May break

The Bungalow
Visited site for May weekend , pitched up on hard standing near to bottom of site, there is grass pitches too. The owner welcomed us and told us where to find everything. There's some road noise from nearby main road but it's handy for visiting places around the area and not too far away from a supermarket and Brewers fayre. Hope to visit again soon.

Great for visiting Durham

The Bungalow
We did an East Coast tour in May and June 2018 and this was one site l was not sure of. Easy to find but the new club sign is very missable. Seems to blend into the background unlike the red pennant. Site is as described by others. Great for visiting Beamish some 8 miles away. A fantastic centre. makes the Black Country Museum look small. The pathway out of the bottom right hand corner leads to miles of footpaths, the dog loved it. Owner and family all live in adjacent bungalows and there is always someone about. Bit of noise but not at night. Park and ride a few minutes away but Durham was a little disappointing. Perhaps because we had the dog with us and couldn't actually get into attractions. One site for next time.
