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.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

Great for walking and visiting the town of Barnard Castle with many pubs, cafes and shops. We are a couple in our late 40's early 50's with a dog. Good tv reception to! We did not have a car to travel so just walked to local places. River looks great for fishing.

This review is for Barnard Castle

the mould in shower base was not nice to look at. looks like dirt. Some method of preventing (I hope youngsters) playing inside toilet block. I.m glad Im not a warden hAVING TO CLEAN UP AFTER THEM.I did one morning clean out a basin full of grass,yuk.Abolutley dont like the glamping tents. spoil the appearence of what is a beautifull site, horrified when we saw them,plus the occupants dont know or wont follow simple basic camping rules-ie mopping showers. playing football,riding bikes AROUND units.Not what we expect.Please take note. The site still remains one of our favorites, but for how much longer,
