As usual a really lovely visit. We have been visiting here 2 or 3 times a year as a family and have never tired of the friendly hospitality of the Lamb family. They have always made us very welcome and provide a well managed/run site, with excellent clean facilities. Our family have grown up from being toddlers to teenagers, visiting Doe Park. They have always found plenty to do on site and the owners have never made them feel unwelcome as children/young people. The surrounding countryside is amazing and very beautiful. We have walked and cycled over the years and have many happy memories of visiting places such as Barnard Castle, Eggleston, High Force, Middleton in Teesdale and Hamsterly Forest. We describe the area to friends and family as one of Englands last beautiful unspoilt areas. We would recommend the whole package to anyone considering a holiday in this area and would thank the Lamb family for sharing their beautiful spot of England with us, creating many happy and peaceful memories for us.

You will find it very difficult to find a better managed site than Doe Park near the village of Cotherstone near Barnard Castle County Durham. The minute you arrive you feel completely chilled out as the friendly owners take you to show you which pitches are free to use. The site is in lovely open country yet just 5 minutes walk to a village with a shop and two pubs. Plus the bonus of being on the main bus route to Barnard Castle and Middleton. ( Every hour). Visitors will find the pitches well spaced and many/ most hard standing with grass for awnings . Two well kept toilet blocks are aways available due to cleaning rota. Keen walkers can join the Teesdale Railway tracks as part of the national pathways so you can walk for miles without seeing a car , great for dogwalks and cyclists alike. You have the choice of a few pubs as well on route as you pass the villages that used to be served by the railway. Our view... Doe Park is one of the best sites for caravaners/motorhomers in the North East...Dont miss it..

We always use Caravan club site,s But thought we would give Doe park and try after hearing so many good reviews. An are we glad we give this site a try. FIRST CLASS site very clean and well run The owners are so friendly. great walks from the site to great pubs. We have booked lots more weekends at this site can not wait to go back. Great walk to rose and crown pub along the railway path also the village is only 10 min walk with few pubs. Rose and crown at Romaldkirk also lets dog,s in.

We were driving along the Teesdale route from Barnard Castle towards Middleton in Teesdale. This is a lovely area which is great for touring, walks, county pubs, and welcoming people. We found Doe Park by chance open in March and booked in for a 2 nights. It is a super site which has lovely views with neat spacious pitches most with gravel hard standing and grass. Not a sign of mud anywhere and the showers, hook up and facilites are just immaculate. We are booked up again for 17th March . The best point is only 10 minutes walk into the village of Cotherstone with two pubs and lots of county walks and public transport. You can pitch up and forget driving.
