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

Fish & chip van calls 2x week, & Pizza 1x week. everyone on site friendly and helpful. Good dog walk on site, & plenty to see and do in the area. High Force water fall, Wensleydale Creamery only an hour away. Good shops in Barry itself, butcher's homemade pies to die for. All in all a very good place to stay.

Beautiful clean site tucked in out of view from the road.

This review is for Barnard Castle

Beautiful clean site tucked in out of view from the road. Nearly missed the site and small sign, this was a minor issue quickly resolved by calling the site. Great place to cycle, fairly flat if unfit like me, safe for the whole family, or a walk into Dunbar via the cost line, or take a picnic and head in the opposite direction towards the lighthouse. For small and big kids looking for fossils can be fun or simply beach combing. The site managers ensured our safe stay by informing us of weather warnings, high winds. I presume most pitches will have a sea view some uninterrupted. We took a grass pitch and worried slightly about it becoming muddy however the ground was well drained much appreciated as it rained really hard.

We stayed here at Easter in 2012 and there was problems with the site electricity tripping out.

This review is for Barnard Castle

We stayed here at Easter in 2012 and there was problems with the site electricity tripping out. It was therefore disappointing to find after site upgrades (Tarmac roads/additional hardstandings) that the electricity tripped out once again on Saturday at 5PM. We lost count how many times the electricity tripped out on the Saturday. It also tripped out at Breakfast time on the Sunday. We felt really sorry for the Holiday site mangers who had to keep turning out on a bad night. Come on Caravan and Camping Club you have some very stiff opposition down the the road in the form of a brand new Caravan Club site.
