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.

Wardens

I arrived on this site on Tuesday 10th September. The wardens were very welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much bother and they always had a smile. Unfortunately I've had to cut my holiday as there is an emergency at home. Again the wardens have gone out of their way. I will definitely be back.

So impressed we booked another visit

We had booked two nights at this site to break up a journey to Scotland. The site is well maintained, the facilities are clean, plenty of hot water and the staff friendly. Barnard Castle is lovely. The Bowes Museum is well worth a visit. The site is close to local facilities so we cycled everywhere. We were so impressed with the site, we booked another night to break up our return journey.

Fabulous

This was our first ever stay on a club site (or any other for that matter) in a motorhome - and what great choice and fantastic place to be introduced into motorhoming at ! Wonderful, understanding, friendly and helpful staff. The site is spacious, fantastically well maintained, quiet and - most importantly (and impressively given all of the facilities) - absolutely spotless, clean, tidy and beautifully cared for. Add to this the lovely location, adjacent meadow and nature reserve along with all of the great places to see and visit. To us, Teesdale set the ‘Gold Standard’ for the rest of our holiday .... and was rarely matched but never bettered. A huge thank you to all of the staff - who were fundamental in making the site and our stay so relaxed and happy.

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 . . .
