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).

Lovely site if your travelling up and down the country.

This review is for Barnard Castle

Lovely site if your travelling up and down the country. Dog walk is adequate for toileting purpose. Lovely walk into Barnard castle which is a lovely town with nice architecture, wonderful individual shops. The weather was poor we had mist, drizzle and downpours but still had some lovely walks. Visited High force waterfall and Hamsterey forrest. If you know the area well enough to go for long walks straight from the site, I would expect there is a lot of walking to be done. The surrounding countryside is lovely. The only downside to our visit was the unfortunate smell of Pig poop from the neighbouring farm. Campsite is in the countryside some smells to be expected.

This review is for Barnard Castle

Near enough for 1 mile walk into Barnard Castle but feeling like a wonderful quiet country retreat when on site. Very well located for enjoying Durham and Yorkshire Dales, Pennines and even the Vale of York. Visiting High Force, England's highest waterfall, is an easy 12 mile drive and provides a range of great walks from half mile to 5/6 miles including a section of the Pennine Way.

The Bowes museum in Barnard Castle is excellent with a very good cafe which you can access without paying the museum entrance fee. Lovely places to visit in all directions from the site.
