This is a lovely site with well spaced out pitches excellent service points and a more than adequate modern toilet block with one added advantage a drying room. We stayed there for 5 nights as I wanted to visit Weardale Preserved Railway at Witten-le-Wear to have a train ride on their 1958 Class 122 Bubble car. I was quite surprised that three were no leaflets about the attraction in the information room. Following my visit the lady in their shop at Stanmore Station gave a bundle of leaflets that are now sited in the site information room. The site is close to Barnard Castle but beware it is readable hilly on your return journey. It took me 15 minutes for town centre to the site via the pathway on the B6277. there is an alternative way via the river Tyne but it can be slippy and uneven in places and takes longer. We dined out on two occasions at The Three Horse Shoes Hotel in the town centre. The food was excellent and as I have a gluten allergy I had good options on the menu. My only criticism of the site was with the Wi-fi we were on pitch 71 on the lower level of the site where I found the coverage extremely poor. My advice would check out the best coverage area before you pitch up.
