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).

This review is for Barnard Castle

We stayed here for 2 nights on returning back to Scotland, entering the site about 1/2 mile from the main road, the site looks great, both Katherine and Edward welcomed us and were very pleasant, they have great knowledge about the surrounding area and things to do, we got offered a pitch just over from the facilities which was good because we weren't jammed in and plenty of space, only downside from here was the fields next to us or the farm had a very strong smell of manure but that's the countryside for you! Lol the facilities were very clean and well maintained, there is a short walk through the farm which takes you out just form the castle which is well worth a visit and great wee town. One issue we had was flies, but we bought the sticky fly catcher from the local hardware shop which worked very well, or it's worth bringing some. But well done to the staff and hope to see you again, John and lorraine.

This review is for Barnard Castle

This was the last of 4 sites we stayed at on a two week tour around the NE as we headed for home. I'd been a bit put off after reading a review (after we'd booked!) saying Barnard Castle was a 2-3 mile walk along the road - it was a 20 minute walk through a lovely wood. The town itself is well worth a visit, some independent shops and dog friendly cafes. Walks from the doorstep.

An excellent site that is well maintained. The wardens were friendly and welcoming.

An excellent site that is well maintained. The wardens were friendly and welcoming. We can't blame them for the continuous rain that's just British weather for you!!!! Took the opportunity to visit our wet weather program, Bowes museum, Shildon Railway museum, Egglestone Hall gardens for lunch and a walk round between showers and Barnard Castle and town.
