Lovely walks direct from the site

Our first visit to this site, and we have no doubt we will be back. The site is in excellent condition, and the hard standing pitches were well spaced and very well maintained. Some road noise can be annoying, but otherwise peace itself. We had a serviced pitch which was a blessing. We didn't use any facilities on site so can't comment. A miriad of footpaths close to the site leading into Deepdale Nature Reserve, and an easy walk into Barnard Castle where there are more footpaths ( Teesdale Way along the river) the castle, pubs cafes and shops. Our only complaint was the lack of assistance from the wardens when we complained about the poor or non existing WiFi, despite the antennas on site and the so called bronze rating. The comment " we struggle too " didn't help. A few comments on Twitter and Facebook, and to their credit, Air Angel, the WiFi providers miraculously turned the WiFi on, a shame it took till our 4th day, but hey ho !!

First visit

Spent two nights on this lovely site. Very efficient check in and out. Facilities immaculate and the rubber band system for the toilets and showers work perfectly. A short twenty minutes walk into the town where there is a good variety of shops, restaurants and bars. Will visit again. Well done to the wardens

Doing ones best

Just spent 2 weeks at this site and under difficult circumstances the wardens are doing a fine job . The site is kept clean and they can't do enough for you and if you pick your time to use the facility's everything runs reasonably smoothly.

Lovely location

Stayed a few times here in the last twelve months and always found the staff extremely helpful and the facilities immaculate. I do get the fact that a few members grumble about the traffic noise but I’m not a light sleeper so had no issues personally. I’m not sure that the volume of traffic passing both daytime and through the night would put the road in to the “busy” category used by some other reviewers. A few people also expressed some reservations regarding the walk in to town with parts of the road not having a footpath but we did it numerous times with a wheelchair user in the party without issues as any motorists we encountered were courteous and gave us plenty of room. Whilst on the subject of wheelchair users there is a surfaced bridle path on the edge of town which runs along the river for a mile or two, giving the opportunity for those needing wheeled transport to see parts of the country that are not often accessible to them. Finally, and again on a wheelchair related note, nearly all CAMC sites have good disabled shower facilities but those here are exceptional in terms of cleanliness and layout. We’ll be back soon.

Clean site but on a busy and noisy road

Small clean friendly site but next to a very busy noisy road during the day, lovely walk into town through the woods but don't walk down the main road as there is no path for most of the way and the cars drive very fast up and down the road. Easy access to the centre and other places for visiting. We stayed on a fully serviced pitch but it was too close to the road for my liking. Would probably go again but would ask for one of the electric only pitches furthest away from the road next time.

Nice but noisy

Nice site with great enclosed dog walking area - very noisy as next to busy main road. Don’t follow the site instruction to town there is little or no kerb and fast road rather turn left and go through woods which is a pleasant stroll if a bit uneven. Town worth the visit and has some nice shops and restaurants. Did not see any reasonable cycle routes, the town is the main attraction and suppose the famous optician !!

Stop Over

Stopped on way back from Scotland. Great book in by staff. Took pitch no 13 near gate and walked into town via the river route. Love to revisit site. Very well kept and again sensible rubber band system for using the facilities. Can the CAMC use this throughout the network? It works.

Excellent Site

Stayed for 3 nights early September. Been to site twice before as it is only 45 mins drive from our storage location and we are only making trips within a two hour drive from home. As usual site is immaculately maintained, one of the wardens was mowing the grass on site on arrival and was still on with it when we left....a forth road bridge exercise! WiFi on site was reasonable strength - I was able to download my daily newspaper onto my tablet in a couple of minutes. Site is a nice walk into town across river bridge, bit steep climb up on other side of river but not too bad. Parking car in town easy and not too bad a price £1.20 for 2 hours in car park next to Morrisons superstore; this allows you walking access to the town main street. Town has lots of nice shops and several very good restaurants - we visited the Capri Italian restaurant who do excellent lunch and early bird meals £8 for 2 courses. A 15 mile drive gets you to High Force Waterfall which is well worth the drive. Nice pub doing snacks etc at the entrance. A 7 mile drive gets you to Raby Castle which if you are members of Historic Houses is free, but £13 PP for castle entry and gardens. Free parking on site - Nice snack bar in old stables. Overall we really enjoyed our stay

Lovely location

Really nice site and welcoming staff, The only down side which is not related to the site is the walk into the town down the main road, although there is a bit of a path it was slightly overgrown and had it been wet would have not been a pleasant walk this however is nothing to do with the site which was clean tidy lovely staff and everything was explained. The walk into town took about 10 minutes and the town is very nice with everything one needs in a market town.
