Why stay here ...

Even though this site is located just half a mile from the market town of Barnard Castle, Teesdale Barnard Castle Club site is set in open countryside that is designated an Area of High Landscape Value. Barnard Castle is a delightful town, home to the renowned Bowes Museum, a 12thC castle, an excellent visitor centre and a choice of pubs and restaurants.

Barnard Castle also marks the entrance to Teesdale which offers spectacular scenery following the river up to High Force and a series of other waterfalls to its source beyond the Pennine Way and Cow Green Reservoir.

The valley of Teesdale is prime walking and cycling country for those that love the outdoors, offering a wide variety of terrains to suit all abilities. Enjoy walks along the Teesdale Way, or shorter walks in the local area. For the less energetic, there are many places of interest nearby. The area's main asset is its unspoilt tranquillity.

A mobile fish and chip van visits this site, please ask the site staff for details.

Well placed for a beautiful setting

This is a very well maintained site, clean, tidy, nicely laid out with decent amounts of space and a goodly amount of hedges and trees. Thanks to the staff for such a good job. The site is not huge (a good thing) but it's easy to access and a pleasure to arrive. We loved the area (and would like to move to Barnard Castle) and there is plenty to see and enjoy. We walked up to High Force on a sunny and windy day, enjoying every minute of it. We really liked the town, its variety and friendliness (and the Firkin micropub). The only blemish for this lovely site is the proximity of the road; it's not hugely busy, but the traffic when it's there makes quite a noise. However, we were on the third row back and the noise didn't really disturb us with the door and windows shut. We'll be back, nonetheless . . .

Dog Heaven!

We loved this site, particularly our dog! The Dog Meadow is an incredible facility, such a pleasant environment to have a little walk round whether you have a dog or not. There are walks in the woods available next to the site too and some good spots for paddling in the river too. As you would hope from a Caravan Club site, the site is very well looked after, has friendly and helpful staff and is a pleasant walk away from the town centre (take the footbridge rather than going round the road way). We also recommend a visit to Hamsterley forest, the fish and chips van and the Three Horseshoes Pub in town.

Summer Holiday July 2019

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.

Favourite site and wardens

Another stay at our favourite site, we have been asked several times why we keep coming back to the same site? Location Facilities Site layout Dog walk importantly though, the wardens, who are brilliant, hard working and a credit to the ‘Club’.A special mention to Jacqui who usually books us in with such a happy smile, oh and yes, we will be back.

EXcellent as always, we must stay longer

We have visited this site several times usually as a stopover on our way to Scotland. It never disappoints and we must make a point of staying longer next time to get the full experience of the town and surrounding area. Excellent facilities, great dog walk. Wardens extremely friendly and helpful.
