Why stay here ...

In May 2022, we completed work to provide more pitches for members, adding 10 brand new hardstanding pitches and 10 Serviced Pitches.

Even though this site is located just half a mile from the market town of Barnard Castle, Teesdale Barnard Castle Club Campsite 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.

Could be our favourite

Teesdale Barnard Castle Club Campsite
This was our first visit to the site, which is in the beautiful north of England, and it exceeded our expectations on so many levels. Easy to get to and a short walk into the town for shops, bars, restaurants and cafes has convinced us it will be a favourite for future visits. There are two routes into the town, one alongside the road and the other through a lovely forest. We did both, but because we had a dog, decided we preferred the forest route. Some previous reviewers mention road noise but believe me you won't notice it. The facilities block is clean and the showers have plenty of room and hot water. Pitches are big and level but take some rock pegs for awnings because the base material is well compacted. The staff are amazing and will always try to help (thank you Brian and Sue!). Overall, an exceptional site.

Lovely Site

Teesdale Barnard Castle Club Campsite
Enjoyed our first stay on this site. Facilities were very clean and accessible. Staff were very welcoming , friendly and informative. Ideal location to tour a beautiful part of Durham, and also nice walk into Barnard Castle itself. Lovely walk through a pleasant wooded area , ideal for our Dog. Noise from the roads didn’t bother us at all.

Ideal location

Teesdale Barnard Castle Club Campsite
This site is ideally situated for accessing the town. It’s only a short walk and the town has lots of pubs , restaurants and fish and chips shops. The staff on site are friendly and helpful. It was poor weather , rainy , and our pitch was flooded due to poor drainage. The pitches are well spaced out and it’s an attractive site. There is some road noise but not much.

Prices spiraling. Can it be justified ?

Teesdale Barnard Castle Club Campsite
We have stayed here many times and always enjoy our time. here. Two points i would make. 1. Earliest arrival time now 1pm. Cant understand the clubs stance on this as surely they should be asking people to leave at before 11am and first arrivals at 12 . That means you can walk our for lunch . Has the club ever asked members about this ? . Second point is pricing. Do we really need to increase prices. so much over Bank Holidays ? Other than that this site is very worth a visit OFF PEAK if you want a better deal. New part is now open but looks a bit bear without trees and bushes. Would always try for pitches on the bottom row arround nos 30s to 40s. Handy for toilet block quieter and nice open views. Nice wardens and great facilities. 15 minute walk into Barney if you cross the footbridge. Three Crowns for a nice meal out 147 chippy first class.

Don’t under estimate the road noise!!

Teesdale Barnard Castle Club Campsite

If you are lucky enough to get a pitch on the lower side of the site you’ve cracked it….however the road noise on the other side of the site is horrendous and pretty constant.

First time for us in this area and the location is excellent for walking into Barnard Castle and beyond. Barnard Castle is a very nice busy little town with lots of independent shops, smallish Morrison’s and good eateries.

The circular walk from Barnard Castle to Abbey bridge and returning via Egglestone Abbey (free of charge) is an easy walk of varying aspects.
