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.

Brilliant site, pity about the members.

Teesdale Barnard Castle Club Campsite
Couldn't fault the site or the wardens, 1st class in every sense. Congratulations to you all. The only problem I have here is that the pathways into town from the site seems to get steeper and steeper everytime we visit. Or is it just me getting older. If you've never been you must visit it as it makes a great base to visit the local villages and towns. We drove to Reeth and walked the route around the river, (which has changed course over the years) and came upon the mountain bike event at Grinton which was very spectacular to watch and see the riders going up the nearby hills and traverse across the tops to come back into view covered in mud. An excellent stay.

Wardens of the year

Teesdale Barnard Castle Club Campsite
Recent three night stay and as usual the site is well run and the wardens are very welcoming . We like the fact that we are a 10 to 15 minute walk into town and once you pass the first 200 yards on road into Barney the path is in place and you wlll soon be in Barnard Castle if you cross the foot bridge over the Tees and head up hill to the town . Try the Three Horseshoes as a nice place to drink and eat . Plus 149 Chip shop at the top end of the town . We changed pitch for two nights and the wardens were really great and said just let them know the new pitch number . i like the fact they use an electric service tractor and the site is overlooing a lovely valley and toilets are in good order . More people seem to use own facilities so the additional pitches doesnt have much affect on availabilty . The trick is to choose the quiet times to use the showers etc, The layout of the site is good and most pitches have privacy and space . Plenty of service points too . Only negatives that the serviced pitches dont have much of a view and the prices are too high in peak season

Long weekend stay

Teesdale Barnard Castle Club Campsite
Arrived on Thursday and left Monday. Site was easy to find and nice welcome on arrival. Lovely site with good facilities and great for walking in to the town. We thought the whole area was really nice and did two 8/9 mile walks. One from Cotherstone (which is 10 minutes drive) and the other from the site. We also went to High Force Waterfall and spent half a day in Richmond. Overall had a great weekend break and would be happy to come back again sometime.

Great site

Teesdale Barnard Castle Club Campsite
Second visit to Barnard Castle and enjoyed it just as much both times. The walk into Barnard Castle along the river is lovely and the town is very nice with lots of shops and pubs. Reccomend 3 horseshoes pub and butchers on the corner. Chippy is also good. Good walking options from the site. Will return.

Short stay

Teesdale Barnard Castle Club Campsite

Booked in for 3 nights mid July. Got there about 15 minutes early as there is usually a queue, and got promptly turned away by the wardens. I don’t mind this as the earliest booking time is 1.00pm, I just wish there was a bit of consistency between the sites as the last site we went too had a queue forming at 12.30 !. The site is in good condition but I feel there are not enough toilets and showers now they have the extra pitches. The wardens were okay, but that was about it. I did get told I was getting the evils by one of them because I was chatting with their partner, not what I expected because I was just asking for directions into town. I would go back to this site because I think the town is great, but there are other sites dotted around that are more welcoming for sure. Just one final point for pet owners, the dog walk is very low quality.
