Why stay here ...

Pleasantly landscaped, White Water Park Club Site lies adjacent to the largest white water canoeing and rafting course built to an international standard in Britain. The caravan site provides easy access to all its facilities including a sheltered viewing balcony, a drying and changing room, canoe storage area, shop and cafe. The area is also famous for its International Summer Riverside Festival and its 'Head of Steam' Railway Museum where you can learn about 'The Birth of the Railways'.

Teesside Park is within easy reach of White Water Park Club Site and is a shopper's paradise- with restaurants, multi-screen cinema complex and bowling alley. Birdwatchers, wildlife enthusiasts and walkers will also be spoilt for choice with over 30 miles of coastline a short drive away from the caravan park. There are numerous tiny fishing villages, traditional holiday resorts and dramatic cliffs to experience, with all the fantastic views you might imagine from such attractions. There is a Beefeater within walking distance and just outside the site is the local pub and a fish and chip van that visits most Fridays. Also not to be missed are the cruises available at Castlegate Quay.

Breezy

We stayed here for the first time ever and it lived up to all expectations...........it was pristine with flowers and tubs of plants everywhere that were well tended and watered. Grass was kept in almost bowling green condition and the facilities as usual were clean, modern and well maintained. The hard standing pitches were level with no need for transverse levelling, always a bonus and the serviced pitches ( which we didn’t use) were each bounded by medium height hedging to give some shelter and privacy. On our visit the whole site was buffeted by strong wind and unfortunately we caught it ‘in the neck’ but that could have applied to any site. There is a Beefeater adjacent for easy dining and access to the riverside and white water park is close by and easy. We walked along the river to Stockton town centre, a very pleasant walk and there is a hood selection of shops both chain and small to cater for most needs. We went on market day and so had extra shopping treats. Food shopping is close to hand if walking but a 3.5 mile journey by car so have suggested that.a locked gated access be made available for members staying so that a 400 yard walk would see you in the supermarket.

SECOND VISIT TO EXCELLENT SITE

Visited this site for the second time. Excellent base due to having family in the area. On this occasion two members of family visited and slept in our awning. Check in is easy and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. We were able to drive around a couple of times and pick a pitch that suited us and then we popped back to tell staff which pitch we were on and then got the vehicle pass and keys for toilet block. Having to take the keys to the toilet all the time is a bit of a pain but we fully understand why. We have visited a handful of Caravan and Motorhome sites and they are all of a high standard but I think this one by far is the best we have been to, to date. Its so well kept with lots of personal touches and immaculate. Its a great base to visit lots of great places and a walk along the river takes you into Stockton with all the local shops. The local pub is a brewers fayre and did discount for blue light card holders which was great but not very dog friendly considering next to a site where a lot of people have dogs with them. This is no fault of the site but being dog friendly these days a definite plus for local businesses. We will be going back and I have already worked out a good sunny pitch for next time so fingers crossed its free. Very well maintained clean site with lovely friendly staff. You will not be disappointed.

Wow! what a site!

I seldom respond to requests to review, but this site was exceptional. Very hardworking site staff; barely a blade of grass out of place; the insect-friendly corridor between the facilities block and the play area inspirational - one might even call the log-pile "Bugingham Palace"! Keep up the good work!

Fantastic 5* site

This site has to be the best site we have visited in a long time. It is well kept, well run and well maintained. The team are friendly and very helpful, their commitment to their work is evident all over the site. The site itself is well looked after and the toilet block is kept immaculate. I am finding it hard to give any negative comments for this site but if I have to find one (for balance of the review) it would be that the disabled toilet is not made available for general use when the rest of the toilet block is being cleaned, which means that there is no toilet available when your particular part of the block is cleaned. The only other thing I could find was that the times given on the information sheet about the fish and chip van are incorrect, however, this is rectified on the A board which is placed outside reception! Sorry folks these are the only negatives we could find. This is a wonderful site, with a wonderful team keeping it well up to CC standards. Definitely a site we will be revisiting. We booked for 10 days and liked it so much we extended out stay.

Best kept site!

Grass neatly trimmed and green. Not a weed in sight on the hardstandings. Toilet block spotless. Worth visiting this site if only to admire the flowers displayed around the site at the moment!
