Why stay here ...

We are currently carrying out development work at Teesdale Barnard Castle Club Site to provide more pitches for members. We are adding 10 brand new hardstanding pitches and 10 Serviced Pitches. All works are being carried out in the adjacent field and are anticipated for completion by November 2021, with the new pitches available for use from March 2022 (due to planning restrictions).

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.

Final trip of 2021

Teesdale Barnard Castle Caravan Club Site
We visited this excellent site again for 7 nights on a serviced pitch and once more enjoyed the location and facilities. The wardens maintain the site and its facilities to an excellent standard. The location, 1/2 mile from Barnard Castle and in the beautiful Tees valley make this a wonderful destination. The extension of the site with a further 10 fully serviced pitches and 10 standard pitches will further increase its popularity in 2022 and we shall have no hesitation in returning.

Wardens

Teesdale Barnard Castle Caravan Club Site
Just wanted to thank friendly wardens Chris and Carol who were absolutely brilliant and helped us get through a situation last week when we had problem with our caravan which resulted in needing a recovery back home. Chris and Carol were both very knowledgeable and helpful and are an absolute credit to the Caravan Club. Thank You !

A great site in a wonderful area

Teesdale Barnard Castle Caravan Club Site
We spent a great 4 nights at this site and loved every minute. Having read reviews that mentioned building noise from the site being extended, we chose a pitch at the other end of the site, and it was perfectly quiet. We walked into Barnard Castle via the woods, a lovely way to access the town and not muddy when we were there. We’ve been to Barnard Castle before and really like all the independent shops and friendly vibe. On the day when it was blowing a westerly gale, we caught the 95 bus to Middleton in Teesdale from outside the site (you just flag it down) and walked back via the Teesdale Way, a wonderful varied walk, partly on the banks of the Tees and partly up on the hills above it. Halfway back we had a great lunch at the Coach House in Eggleston. The other two days were fine, dry and sunny – and still – so perfect for cycling. One day we retraced the bus route via the pretty villages to Middleton where we can recommend the Tees Pot café – very friendly staff and customers, had lunch and stocked up on cakes for the way back, on the slightly busier B road back to base via Eggleston. The last day we ventured north of the site, to the Hamsterley Forest, a hillier ride but with magnificent long views in all directions. There’s plenty of parking in the Forest and bike hire – we saw lots of families enjoying the trails on foot and on bikes, and for the more adventurous (ie not us!) there are loads of challenging mountain bike trails. Ours are hybrid bikes and we kept to the well surfaced main ‘Forest Drive’. So with so much to do in the area on foot and 2 wheels, we’ll definitely be back before too long, and look forward to stocking up again on local produce at the excellent Mainsgill Farm shop on the A66 between Scotch Corner and the site – look out for the resident camels!!
