Stopover

We just used this site as a stop-over enroute to Scotland on the Friday evening. We were lucky to get in as we rang up as we were approaching the area. The lady we spoke to wasn't able to meet us at the CL - but we were given clear instructions as to where to find it and we were also given the combination of the lock on the gate so as to gain access to the livery yard. We were advised to leave our payment in the secure payment box in the little wooden cabin - which we did. We cannot comment further really on the site - it served its purpose for us. It wasn't a particularly large site - somewhat "cosy" - so not sure whether outfits stay for any length of time would get an awning up. We certainly wouldn't be able to use our awning on our motorhome. It was safe and quiet though, which was the main thing. Due to covid restrictions the pool table was out of bounds. Hand sanitisers were fitted on the wall of the cabin - and also at the "service" area.

Overnight motorhome stay touring

A very brief overnight visit, touring. Easy access and hard standing. Great facilities with recycling and easy electric and water. Met all our requirements as we were passing through.

Disappointing

Although the site is described as being 1acre, most of it is fenced off, so only a small part is available for caravans. You have to line up and park cheek by jowl with your neighbours. This is far from the spaciousness and relaxed atmosphere which is our usual experience of a CL.

Good Stopover near Bishop Auckland

Nothing to complain about after a short stopover at this reasonably priced CL (£12 per night). We rang the owner who confirmed the price and gave me the code for the chain lock and also confirmed the approach to the CL. The SD describes it well. The first of two gates is the one that is locked and very large outfits may find themselves protruding into the road whilst they unlock the gate. The road doesn't have a heavy traffic load but is still quite well used. Quiet at night. After relocking the gate trundle down a dirt track, no big potholes, to the second, passing the livery en route. Through the second gate you then have 5 pitches on hardstanding accessed via the entry road. Note that the photos supplied by the CL on the website appear to be old and do not show the H/S. There is a slight front to back tilt but most pitches seem to be nearly level side to side. EHU points are adjacent and there are 2 water points. The waste bins include recycling and these are found along with the CDP around the back of the portacabin in a neat area. The p/cabin is open and contains a book library and a pool table for guests use (bring your own chalk but cues supplied). Some general info is also found here but most appears out of date. Owners live in the village and will call if needed but ask that fees are left in an envelope, supplied, and put into the box in the p/cabin. A bus stops right outside heading towards Darlington and you will find another going the other way in the village about 100 yards away plus a recommended pub (not used by us on this visit).Supermarkets can be found in the local town of Newton Aycliffe and Bishop Auckland. The CL contains a variety of interesting wildlife plus the local horses and goats. A dog can be excercised on public footpaths close to the CL and there is a large grass area behind the pitches. Thd A1 is close by and this would make an excellent stopover. Local attractions include Raby Castle, Barnard Castle and Durham. All in all an excellent CL for a short stay.

Great long weekend

Fantastic site, we had a great weekend with our grandchildren, the site being very secure, the hard standing was very level, the whole site was very quiet, nice to watch the horses and goats, very good recycling facility and a very well designed waste disposal point, will be stopping here again, well done to owners for providing an excellent CL

A great spot to stop.

We wanted a site near to our destination at "Beamish". This site fit the bill and enabled a stop a the nearby Shildon Railway Museum. The site is very secure down a well made private driveway, ( 'entrance is locked with coded lock which is shared when booking.) The usual five CL pitches well made hard standing with grass well kept. EHU and a useful information cabin which has a liberal supply of information about the area, books, DVDs and a pool table. We did not need the recycling and waste facilities so I can't accurately comment, but saw them being used by others on the site with no apparent issues . Very quiet despite some noise from the main road and the horses from the livery were quiet but added a pleasant rural feel.

A Piece of Heaven

Middridge Meadows is a haven for wildlife, pure tranquility and fabulous place to stay. We come here regularly because it's a great getaway. The owners are fantastic and go above and beyond to make sure your stay is everything you could wish for. We had a breakdown with the caravan on our last visit and the owners of the site couldn't have done any more to assist us over the period of a weekend. They were fabulous and we cannot thank them enough.

Middridge is lovely

This site is ideal for nature lovers and a quiet peaceful place to be. We thoroughly enjoyed going to say hello to the horses and asked horse owners if they were allowed the occasional sugar lump. The area is pleasant too and the local pub cooks very nice meals at reasonable prices. We can recommend this place and its very easy to find

Best value site we've used in 4 years caravanning!

Found site, approaching from the A1 the entrance is immediately left at the end of the terrace of houses. Gated, combination locked entrance. We pitched facing the horses who were lovely to watch. Pool table in the Information Hut is a master stroke! Have only given 3 for ease of arrival/welcome as we didn't see anyone to pay and left our site fees in the box as instructed. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and would return.

nice location

pleasant experience from beginning to end. got all information by email. then booking and got the gate lock number. Clear instructions them made for an easy arrival. found the gate set back from road but with a long caravan had part stinking out onto road till unlocked gate. Field was well kept, surrounded by countryside and horses. 10 minute walk to the local pub which served good food dog walking is good. We did not the owners. contact numbers were clearly displayed at the information hut and on the booking details we were given. Should we be staying in the area again we would not hesitate in staying at this CL.
