Ideal site for exploring Teesdale & the Yorkshire Dales and outdoor pusuits.

If you’re looking for peace and tranquillity, a rural location with plenty of walking and cycling opportunities our Barnard Castle Club campsite is for you.

Located on the north eastern edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, handy for the attractions of Teesdale and within walking distance of Barnard Castle or Barney as it is known locally, the tree-lined campsite is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

This pretty tree-lined campsite has 90 pitches. The camping field is level and has a well placed modern facilities block offering showers/toilets, a laundry, disabled facilities, a parent and child room and a dish washing area.

There are plenty of walks direct from the site and an excellent dog walk for those who don’t want to venture too far. Children are catered for with a play area and the visiting fish and chip van comes highly recommended.

There’s fishing at Balderhead and Hury reservoirs to the west of the site.

For days out visit the Bowes Museum, Bolton Castle, the Wensleydale Creamery Visitor Centre, the Dales Countryside Museum and England’s highest unbroken waterfall, High Force.

Pleasant walk into Barnard Castle through Deepdale Woods (approx 30-40 minutes) but path could be muddy in wet weather. Barnard Castle & Bowes' Museum well worth a visit. We had an enjoyable walk around Barnard Castle following the "Interesting Facts Trail" - map available from reception.

This review is for Barnard Castle

I hadn't towed a caravan for 20 years, and was not familiar with some aspects of setting up a newer unit. Fortunately the staff were observant and helpful, and we got our water pump, heater, and other essentials sorted out with their help. Yet at the same time they did not interfere, patronise us, or read out a list of rules as soon as we arrived, helping us to feel relaxed and welcome, but without being 'policed'. The shower block, and other facilities were immaculate and very pleasant to use. Nothing to visit nearby within walking distance, but a short drive or bike ride to Barnard Castle which was full of character and charm. A lovely quiet, peaceful site.
