We have only just acquired a touring caravan and wanted to try it out instead of just putting into storage and then not knowing what to do on our first outing!! We only live down the road but decided we would pitch up her and give it a go. The site itself is immaculate, great shower/toilet block and plenty of room between pitches. Wardens are helpful, as are all the other people on site. We had never even emptied a cassette toilet before but, thanks to the help of another visitor (Deborah) we managed. The site is ideally placed for Durham City, Beamish Museum, etc. We ended up staying the maximum 3 weeks in total.....popping to work and then returning in the evening - unfortunately, we couldn't do anything about the rain!!
Was great to have the Fish & Chip van on a Friday night.....although no sign of it last Friday. Most takeaways in Belmont (or in the area) are happy to deliver to site and you can pick up from the barrier.
If they read this, a big thank you to the wardens, Deborah & Malcolm (from Norfolk), the gentleman from Consett (lorry driver) who let us watch him hitch up, or was it Crook (sorry) and the lovely couple (from Leicester) who helped us as we hitched up on Saturday (19th October) morning.
We're looking for somewhere to stay for New Year and, in view of the north east weather, will probably book here. A great site. Highly recommend. Many thanks, Helen & Mark x
