My parents from Belgium own a caravan on this lovely beautiful tranquil site. We occasionally visit!!! absolutely fantastic countryside and views. One does not appreciate the beauty of the outdoor life till you come here to stay!! Lots of different walks, rivers, views, need i say more!! and the late sunset on an evening is to die for definately for the romantics !!!! Also the family friendly people who own the site are there for you 24/7. They are lovely friendly people in the cellar bar and will always curtail to your every need!!!! Witton Castle has been given a brand new white wash and i have recommended this site to many of my friends and coleagues at the local hospital!!!! The office secretaries are very helpful and courteous!! This site in my opinion needs a "GOLD STAR" and we love it!!!!! Classy!!!!! xxx

This site is set in lovely grounds, but was let down by the facilities, the toilets are in desperate need of updating, they were old and the showers were cold. Some of the pitches had big muddy puddles, the ducks loved them and so did my 2 yr old! The bar was not a nice relaxing place, was noisy and full of kids, we have never drank a drink so quick so we could get out! They seem to building up the static caravan side of the park. We would use this site as it is close for us to use on a weekend but until they update the toilets we wont be returning.

the website for Witton Castle must have changed to http://www.wittoncastlecountrypark.co.uk/ and along with the new ownership, the park is going to be the best park around. Loads of outdoor pursuits to do and they regularly have events and also have their own fly fishing lakes. Yes a few things on the tourer section need updating, but this will defo be happening, looking at all the money that is being spent. Cannot wait to see it all finished.

I do not understand why this site had such bad reviews, but then after reading the others realise it is now under new ownership. If it was as bad as some of the reviews say then Congratulations to the new owners, this is a beautiful site, added to by the fabulous Castle.

Thank you for a great stay and see you soon.

I have been going to witton castle for the last 7 to 8 years and I have found that since Mr Harker left it has changed. It was a family orientated site which had all kind of events on i.e.:- motor cross,country and western,vintage car rally ,carboot sales and more and the best on of all was the STORMING THE CASTLE. It was always packed every summer but now you be lucky to get a hand full of visiters.The new owners are redeveloping the site to make it look better .but have not set any kind of events up .

A very out of date site in serious need of modernisation. The site was very dirty, extremely noisy at night and poorly managed. Badly lit at night. The toilet/shower facilities were terrible. It is such a shame as there is fantastic potential for this site, but it does need a lot of TLC.
