Good for families

Great if you have a car.

We are a couple in our 50’s with a Motorhome. We love to walk and cycle. On arrival at this site we were greeted by very friendly Wardens who advised us that pitch 32 has the best views. Unfortunately we stuck out a bit so ended up in the cul de sac at pitch 60. Lovely and flat but very noisy. The lane behind is used as a rat run by speeding motorists from early morning to late evening. Not good if your a light sleeper. We did manage a walk and a cycle ride (Barnard Castle) but be warned...... its very hilly and there are no pavements. We also walked into Richmond which is lovely and we will return there if staying at a local site. We did want to catch the bus, but it only runs every 2 hours (29) and the nearest bus stop is in Gilling West (which means a walk down the road without pavements and with fast travelling traffic. Although we managed to walk to Richmond following the road (4 1/2 Very hilly miles) I wouldn’t recommend it, as a lot of it has no pavements. On site there is a small ball games area and dog walk. The showers and toilets are open and immaculate. The showers are lovely and hot with lots of pressure, just how i like it ☺️ So although this is a lovely site, i would say it was more suitable as a overnight stop off or for those with the use of a car, who can travel to Richmond or the Local villages without relying on public transport.
