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.

Lovely walks direct from the site

Our first visit to this site, and we have no doubt we will be back. The site is in excellent condition, and the hard standing pitches were well spaced and very well maintained. Some road noise can be annoying, but otherwise peace itself. We had a serviced pitch which was a blessing. We didn't use any facilities on site so can't comment. A miriad of footpaths close to the site leading into Deepdale Nature Reserve, and an easy walk into Barnard Castle where there are more footpaths ( Teesdale Way along the river) the castle, pubs cafes and shops. Our only complaint was the lack of assistance from the wardens when we complained about the poor or non existing WiFi, despite the antennas on site and the so called bronze rating. The comment " we struggle too " didn't help. A few comments on Twitter and Facebook, and to their credit, Air Angel, the WiFi providers miraculously turned the WiFi on, a shame it took till our 4th day, but hey ho !!

First visit

Spent two nights on this lovely site. Very efficient check in and out. Facilities immaculate and the rubber band system for the toilets and showers work perfectly. A short twenty minutes walk into the town where there is a good variety of shops, restaurants and bars. Will visit again. Well done to the wardens

Doing ones best

Just spent 2 weeks at this site and under difficult circumstances the wardens are doing a fine job . The site is kept clean and they can't do enough for you and if you pick your time to use the facility's everything runs reasonably smoothly.

Lovely location

Stayed a few times here in the last twelve months and always found the staff extremely helpful and the facilities immaculate. I do get the fact that a few members grumble about the traffic noise but I’m not a light sleeper so had no issues personally. I’m not sure that the volume of traffic passing both daytime and through the night would put the road in to the “busy” category used by some other reviewers. A few people also expressed some reservations regarding the walk in to town with parts of the road not having a footpath but we did it numerous times with a wheelchair user in the party without issues as any motorists we encountered were courteous and gave us plenty of room. Whilst on the subject of wheelchair users there is a surfaced bridle path on the edge of town which runs along the river for a mile or two, giving the opportunity for those needing wheeled transport to see parts of the country that are not often accessible to them. Finally, and again on a wheelchair related note, nearly all CAMC sites have good disabled shower facilities but those here are exceptional in terms of cleanliness and layout. We’ll be back soon.

Clean site but on a busy and noisy road

Small clean friendly site but next to a very busy noisy road during the day, lovely walk into town through the woods but don't walk down the main road as there is no path for most of the way and the cars drive very fast up and down the road. Easy access to the centre and other places for visiting. We stayed on a fully serviced pitch but it was too close to the road for my liking. Would probably go again but would ask for one of the electric only pitches furthest away from the road next time.
