Why stay here ...

The pleasant Durham Grange Club Site is set on open, level grounds, conveniently placed just off the A1(M) and within easy reach of the pretty city of Durham. A short 3-mile drive from the caravan park will put you in the heart of the many attractions the city has on offer.

Dramatically set on its 70-foot rocky peninsula in a meandering bend of the River Wear, Durham is steeped in history and one of the most picturesque cities in the UK. Whether you fancy a wander to take in the sense of days gone by, or a bite to eat in the many local restaurants, the panoramic views from every vantage point make the city a holiday destination not to be missed. A visit to the World Heritage site of Durham Cathedral and Castle is a must. For a dose of fresh sea air, Seaham Beach is only a short drive away.

With on-site facilities including a kid's play area, and an indoor play area in nearby Newton Aycliffe to help keep little ones entertained, Durham Grange Club Site is a great choice for those with children. A public footpath runs from near the site through fields, leading down to a river and woodland. Other benefits of the site include a dog walk.

to break journey and look at Durham

2 night motorhome stay August 2018. some road noise but not dreadful where I was pitched. good facilities and staff. Disappointed the public footpath was closed and there are no bike tracks from site so the only "escape" was to walk across main roads to the park and ride and get the bus into town. Durham Cathedral and area is amazing.

Great Location.

Great location for us by the A1 as we were visiting family in Durham and Newcastle. Usual high standard of cleanliness. The noise from the A1 traffic was not too intrusive, and more of a distant 'drone', so we soon got used to it. The layout of the site makes it a long walk around the road to the toilet block if you are on the opposite side of the site. Some members object to people cutting across the side of their pitches. Personally, it doesn't bother us, but a designated footpath across the site to the toilet block is needed and then members could avoid pitches near to the path if they choose.

Agree with all the positive comments for this site, especially the great staff. Only down side was watching campers constantly walking through other people’s pitches. Please put up notices to stop this happening. Perhaps when planning site layouts the club could use natural barriers such as hedging.

Stayed here for a few nights end of June. Great site run by a wonderful couple who couldn't do enough. Close to Durham, Beamish and much much more. I will certainly be going back there.

Great place to stay

We have stayed at Durham Grange a number of times to visit our son who was in Durham University. Our final stay was in June 2018. This is a great site located just off the A1. The park and ride is within easy walking distance or there is an excellent local taxi service, Phoenix taxis, who charge about £7 each way into Durham itself. The facilities at this site are spotless and we note that one of the wardens likes looking after the flower bed outside the office which is a credit to her. There is a little road noice from the A1, but nothing that will bother most. Well worth a visit, loads to see and do in Durham.
