Managed by the Club on behalf of Durham City Council, this is an open and level site with cheerful beds of heather at the entrance, just off the A1(M) and within easy reach of the City of Durham. Many visitors use this as a convenient stop over en route to or from Scotland and its situation makes it a welcome break. But if you decide to stay longer, Durham is only three miles away, dramatically set on its 70-foot rocky semi-island in a hairpin bend of the River Wear. It's steeped in history and the panoramic views from every vantage point must make it one of the most picturesque cities in the UK. For walkers, the County Council arranges a series of guided walks - there's a useful leaflet.

excellent site in all respects. However if it your first visit like us, when the warden tells you to pick a pitch and let him know later which number he means asap ! We took him at his word and got told off because he did not tell us that we had to pick up the key fob for the barrier and when we returned later, he was most annoyed and informed us that we should have known we had to get the fob to go out of the site. Other than his attitude, the site has great facilities and tha disabled shower room was a real boon.

This is one of the best sites we have stayed on. It has excellent facilities, kept to a very high standard. The wardens we have met over the last couple of years have all been very welcoming and very friendly. The site is close to all amenities, whether you want shopping, walking, eating, etc. It is a firm favourite for us, and even though it isn't too far away it is like being on holiday. Highly recommended.
