We regularly review the season lengths of our Club campsites. As such, we have decided to change the season length of this campsite for 2023/24 stays. Please view the updated open and close dates under the 'At a glance section'.

The pleasant Durham Grange Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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.

Reasonable site.

Durham Grange Club Campsite
First time at Durham grange,next to the motorway which has it’s good points and bad.A couple of things I didn’t like the shower temp was just warm enough to use and the toilet block was not heated the other thing has been reported to the club. WiFi was handy though Lots of places to visit,I didn’t see any leaflets for Beamish museum in the info room and also no mention of 15% discount available for club members. The guy next caravan to us was leaving the site at 5.45am every day and was brought to the attention of the warden who just smiled at me and said she would have a word with him.

Excellent welcome, hard working warden's, pristine and clean, We had mechanical problems prior to our arrival, so we were now able to rest with ease, and enjoy Durham and its amazing history, especially the Cathedral, so had a comfortable and lovely week on the Grange site. Thank you

Durham Grange Club Campsite
Clean, tidy well kept site. Ideal for stop over on way up or down the country. And for a longer visit to cover this area of the friendly north east. Yes there may be an element of noise from the A1 but not intrusive.

Good location, basic facilities and some road noise

Durham Grange Club Campsite
We stayed at Durham Grange as a stopover for 2 nights on our way home from Northumberland and so that we could visit Beamish museum. I’d say this site is fine as a short stay site for visiting Durham or Beamish and and as a stopover for either travelling to or from Scotland. It’s not a pretty site, it’s a basic site with clean, functional but ageing facilities. It’s a site I would class as serving a purpose rather than a site enjoyed for being picturesque. Depending on where you are pitched you could get some road noise from the nearby A1. We had a pitch far enough away for it not to bother us. The dog walk is small and there isn’t really any sizeable grassed area to let dogs off for a run. The wardens were lovely, very friendly and welcoming, the reception building had some very pretty hanging flower baskets and troughs outside. The site is easily reached from the A1 and it’s only 11 miles from the Beamish Museum and an easy drive into Durham or to the park and ride.

This is how it should be

Durham Grange Club Campsite
Just spent 3 nights here due to business in Newcastle. The welcome from the wardens Mick & Andrea was suburb with a full explanation of the site & pitch options. The toilet block is modern & spotless and the grounds are well kept with flower beds. There is some work going on but this didn't disturb us. Good dog walking area and convenient for visiting local area. we didn't use the park & ride which isn't far away. we found 2 walk-able pubs the Travelers Rest & Belmont Working men's club which accepts non members & dogs. You have to be really careful crossing the road but it is possible. Will go back if in the area.
