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.

This review is for Barnard Castle

A wonderful campsitethe staff were excellent we arrived with a booking for a grass only site but the ground was extremely wet so we were put on a spare hard site which was wonderful then we got a message to say we could not take up our booking at Boroughbridge due to the wet conditions and with no trouble or fuss we were able to stay at Barnard Castle. The staff are exceprionally friendly In all our travels we have never come up against such a well run campsite it was marvelous we will certainly recomend it to everyone that goes to England and hope that we ourselves will be able to return Johan and Lorna from South Africa

In an ideal location to visit places such as Durham Cathedral, Holy Island and Bamburgh Castle. very good local pubs to eat and drink, especially the Blacksmith Arms in Mickleton for Sunday lunch. Some lovely walks in the beautiful country side. Would definitely go back.
