General

Welcome to Doe Park Caravan Site, our quiet and friendly family run touring park in the heart of beautiful Teesdale in County Durham.Situated on our traditional working farm, between the pretty villages of Cotherstone and Romaldkirk, Doe Park is set in parkland in the grounds of the historic 17th century farmhouse. The touring site is surrounded by farmland, moors, hills and dales and is an ideal base for those looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday in the stunning countryside of North East England.

The village of Cotherstone is only half a mile from the site by pleasant road or river walk and benefits from a well stocked village shop and two pubs serving local ales and good food. A regular bus service can be accessed by the site entrance and runs between the historic market town of Barnard Castle and Middleton in Teesdale in the Upper Dale. Visitors can enjoy an abundance of walks from the site and the Teesdale and Pennine Ways are close by. Balder Banks Nature Reserve ( a Special Site of Scientific Interest) is part of the farm and adjacent to the touring park. It is home to a wide variety of wildlife, birds and plants and is covered in a beautiful carpet of bluebells in May and June. Guests can enjoy private river fishing on our own water or alternatively fish on the local reservoirs just a short drive away.

Local attractions

Teesdale is a hidden gem, an area with waterfalls, wooded valleys, open moorland and magnificent views. Doe Park Caravan Site is located in the heart of Teesdale within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

High Force, in Upper Teesdale is the highest waterfall in England and is well worth a visit. The River Tees plunges dramatically over the Whin Sill to create a mighty spectacle and can be seen from the Pennine Way which passes close by.

Barnard Castle. The main market town in Teesdale is rich in history. The town, named after the magnificent Norman castle around which it is built, has many fascinating shops and is an excellent centre for antique collectors. There is a lively street market every Wednesday and a farmers market held on the first Saturday of every month. The Bowes Museum, a magnificent building housing a wonderful collection of European painting, ceramics and furniture is a short walk from the centre of the town.

Middleton in Teesdale, gateway to the Upper Dale, has a fascinating history of lead mining and can be reached from Doe Park by foot along the Teesdale Railway Walk.

Teesdale has a rich and varied heritage, earlier famous visitors who were inspired by the area are JMW Turner, the great landscape painter and Charles Dickens, the Victorian author who featured locations in the dale in the novel Nicholas Nickleby.

Raby Castle, the home of Lord Barnard is situated in the village of Staindrop and is one of the country's most impressive medieval castles with beautiful gardens and a large deer park.

The Pennine Way and the Teesdale Way pass close to Doe Park and can be accessed easily and there are miles and miles of quiet footpaths to explore from the site.
