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.

Andrew and Patricia are very friendly and you're guaranteed a warm welcome.

This review is for Barnard Castle

Andrew and Patricia are very friendly and you're guaranteed a warm welcome. They're very helpful and there if you need them. The site is fantastic, so much so we're writing this review after our second visit. The facilities are fantastic and very clean. Plenty of water points and waste water disposal points. The site is very clean and well laid out, not to mention very peaceful. We will definitely return.

This is a lovely site and well worth a visit.

This review is for Barnard Castle

This is a lovely site and well worth a visit. The staff are very friendly and will help with any problems if they can. We found there was plenty of pitches available for a late booking. Easy access to Barnard Castle by bus, car (10 mins.) and walking (30 to 45 mins.) depending on your mobility, through fields and woodland, there is a map available at 20p from reception. Good access, by car or bus, to Upper Teesdale, High Force and Cauldron Snout. Good drainage when it rains heavily like we experienced. Susceptible to high winds blowing across the sight, although some of the pitches are well protected behind high hedges. So be prepared to tie down awnings securely. Lots of wildlife e.g. Rabbits, Field Voles and birds. Road access to the site is via a steep, single track road with passing places. All in all a very relaxing site. Will definitely visit again.

This review is for Barnard Castle

Despite visiting the site on a very wet weekend we really liked it, Friendly and well run, Toilets/Showers well kept. Pitches well spaced and level with easy access to good hard surface internal site road. Interesting narrow lane access with passing places but thats about the only criticism I could offer. Site was quite at night and all one would need as a base for exploring the surrounding area.
