A real gem of a site in a wonderful location. Oh, and alpacas as neighbours.

This review is for Pennine Lodge

A real gem of a site in a wonderful location. Oh, and alpacas as neighbours. Pennine Lodge is located just outside St Johns Chapel in Upper Weardale, which is at the heart of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - and that it certainly is. The area is an absolute haven for walkers and cyclists, but also offers lots to those who prefer motorised transport to see the sights. From England's highest tarmacced public road, through brilliant museums (Weardale museum and Killhope Lead Mining museum), to stunning walks through historical industrial landscape or gentle strolls along the tumbling falls of the River Wear, the area is absolutely captivating. St Johns Chapel has a couple of pubs and cafes (the welcome in the Blue Bell pub and Chatterbox cafe is wonderful), a small co-op store and a post office. As for the campsite, I have to say that Pennine Lodge is one of the best certificated sites I have stayed on. Although there are no hardstandings, the site is fast draining and, even in torrential rain, there was no problem with driving on the field. The EHU (there are 4), worked 100% of the time and the CDP point is very good. There is an excellent (free) shower/toilet in a converted shepherd's type hut which is situated by a delightful small waterfall which brought a smile to my face whenever I exited the hut. Although near the main road, traffic noise on a night was negligible and never enough to interrupt sleeping. Joyce and Brian (the owners) are incredibly welcoming and helpful and respond to any concerns immediately. There are wonderful views from the site and easy access to a network of footpaths, especially as a few, including the Weardale Way, cross over the neighbouring fields. In addition to the wonderful views, friendly owners and attractions/facilities in Upper Weardale, there are two additional features which enhance this site - first class, free range hen and duck eggs at a very reasonable price and a flock of alpacas (owned by Joyce and Brian) that are good fun to watch. Thoroughly recommended.
