Disappointed

We have been regular visitors to this CL since it opened. We enjoy the local walks and the pub. It has now increased its price by 25% with no improvement in facilities. Still only one toilet. There is no Motor home waste disposal point and no WiFi on site. What has really annoyed us is the fact they have put an extra Motor home on the site which is clearly only regestired as a CL for 5 pitches, two motorhomes are sharing one pitch tonight which has happened in the past. Not sure if we'll return.

Christmas time visit

Just returned from this site 30/12/2019 , could not fault any practical aspects of the facility , location and excellent time we had . There is a great pub in the village called The Blacksmiths Arms very friendly which is more than I can say regarding the Crown , where the manager really needs to attend a customer relations course . No information was given to us other than a card for the password to shower room all other exchanges were as if we were something on her shoe Food quality in her pub was excellent put the price very expensive . Eat elsewhere on the Sunday Despite the great location would never go again and the low mark is entirely self inflicted otherwise it would have been 100% 5 stars

Great site but you need to be aware of its limitations.

Let's be clear this is a very good well maintained CL with large well serviced hardstanding pitches st in a lovely location supported by a warm welcome. It's what you might be expecting but is not available you need to be aware of. Electric hookup is on every pitch BUT only 10amp which in my opinion is not made clear enough on the site information. There was no WiFi available on the site (nor any sign of antenna for it) during our stay. It was available inside the Crown when open which brings me too my last niggle Winter opening hours were in force during our stay and apply from 1st September to 31st May, are 11am to close (food served 11am till 9pm) Thursday to Saturday and 12 till close (food from 12pm till 4pm) on Sundays and Bank HHolidays. It is very popular so if you wish to eat in the Crown my advice would be to book well before your arrival date. If the lack of wifi, 10amp electrics and reduced pub opening are not an issue for you it's great site.

Great base for exploring

A well maintained site with good size pitches which are nice and level. Some excellent walking from the site, Middleton in Teesdale is a fairly easy 2 mile walk along the railway path, you can explore Middleton, have tea and cake before walking back. The Crown closes on a Monday but The Blacksmiths Arms along the road is a cosy little pub serving drinks, local ales etc. Shower and WC are wet room style and are clean, pressure not great in the shower but it’s ok. I feel bad marking this CL down on peace and tranquility but it’s worth a mention that the site is close to a children’s play park. The park is not owned by the CL, it’s used by the local children, we like children, don’t get me wrong,the issue we had is that the park has a zip wire which is rather noisy, our dog was disturbed by it, growling and grumbling on, it’s popular so be prepared if you plan on spending quiet time during the day at the site. I only mention this as this is an adult only CL. Evenings were very peaceful and we slept well.

Excellent

Just returned from a 4 night stay and wish we'd booked to stay longer. We stayed on pitch 4 with a view over a paddock and hills beyond. The surrounding area is outstanding to visit by car or just walk from the pub . Facilities are spotless and the pitch sizes are large enough for awnings and car to give privacy to this all adult site. During our stay we relaxed and chilled out each afternoon with no noise from anyone as all the other residents seemed to want the same and was easy to forget we were at a pub as we were private from the car park. If you want a quiet peaceful location with top notch facilities book it.. we are planning to return as I can see it will be one of our favourites in the future.
