Great Walks On Site

We will definitely be returning to Baxter Wood Farm as it is exactly the kind of place we like to stay. The field is in a sheltered dip on the banks of a river (with a fence between) so there is a lovely background noise of the water and lots of birdsong coming from the tress. There is plenty of space so even when full you can spread out. There are lots of opportunities for walking right on the doorstep with a footpath alongside the river and the Lanchester Valley Walk just through the farm yard so our 2 dogs are having a great time.

Lovely peaceful site.

We must have visited this c.l. 20 or more times when daughter studying at Durham and it never varies.Lage grass area near River Browney .Good basic w.c.facilities near the house.Easy access but grass can be long and this can be tricky for motorcaravans.We have towed one off on one occasion.This site appears to have its own microclimate!!!!!! We have a fifty year old van and once in December we used two 3.9kg propanes in three nights and still the frost did not clear from the INSIDE of the window frames.We discovered that the temp went down to-9c even though everywhere else more than 3 hundred yards away was bathed in sunshine with clear blue skies. A wonderful site that we will no doubt return to even though Mr Jones will be putting up the price next year from £5 night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great CL

If you like peace and quiet then this site is for you. There is no electricity just a tap and a chemical point so I recommend taking well charged batteries and a solar panel if you have one. Loads of room for the kids to play as the site is a grassy meadow with a shallow river running at the side. Some cycliest pass by as the site is situated nearan old disused railway line. Great CL to chillax!
