After reading previous reviews was expecting to be parked on tarmac at edge of car park with no views. What a pleasant surprise; a grassed area with 5 hard standing pitches, 3 of which are facing river so dependant on your height/ windows you could get a good view of various boats. Water and waste in centre of car park as used to wash boats off as well. Excellent for dog walks; circular one round river & woods, large park just outside club, 10 min walk into Durham with more river walks there plus a good mix of usual & independent shops. Toilets clean and modern, showers- ladies have shower curtains then communal changing, men's are open. Husband enjoyed fishing within site boundary with minimal boats passing. Will definitely return.
