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.

Beautiful Barnard Castle

Teesdale Barnard Castle Club Campsite
Our first visit to Barnard Castle site and loved it, listening to the birds and wildlife. Easy walk into town, we went along the road but soon walking next to the river. Great town with good shops and facilities and good fish and chip shop - 149. We went to High Force & Low Force and parked the camper at Bowlees visitor centre and walked between the 2 waterfalls. Handy drying room on site too.

Second visit and we will be back again

Teesdale Barnard Castle Club Campsite
Great site and easy to get to. We used the service pitches which were great. There was a bit of road noise but nothing to bother us. Can’t comment on the facilities as we used our own. Wardens were very friendly. Easy and lovely walk into BC. We opted to walk through the woods and by the small river which was a 20 minute walk. It’s easy to walk on grass verges along the road though. Plenty to do in the area.

A great location within walking distance of a lovely town. On a good bus route (important to us motorhomers). Masses to do in the area.

Good 4 night stay

Teesdale Barnard Castle Club Campsite
Spent 4 nights at Teeside CAMC just outside Barnard Castle. Nice site with a small dog walking area. Really nice walk into Barnard Castle took about 25 minutes through the woods and alongside a small river. Barnard Castle itself is really nice.....plenty of shops, cafes and pubs. Facilities on site were clean and not too far from any of the pitches. I would stop here again if we were touring the area.

Gem of a site

Teesdale Barnard Castle Club Campsite
Just home from our 4th stay. We love this site as it’s in an ideal location for a short walk into town to visit the shops and pubs. The site is clean and well cared for and the wardens are great and really helpful. There is a playground for children which looks well equipped and maintained and a large dog walk area. The toilet block, dishwash and laundry facilities are clean and looked after and there is an information room with plenty of leaflets, taxi numbers and a book exchange. There are lots of walks both from the site and a little further afield and plenty of places to visit. This time we did a circular walk from Barnard Castle past the Bowes Museum and Egglestone Abbey. On previous visits we have walked round High Force and Low Force waterfalls. Durham and Richmond aren’t far away and worth a drive out to.
