A warm welcome awaits at Bonners Lodge, where chief of staff Luna the cat oversees a small team of humans, dogs and horses at this friendly family-run site. Officially it’s Ken and Michelle that own the place, but there’s always a helping hand from canine pals Billy and Charlie....
Make the five-minute drive from the A68 and settle yourself in for a hefty dose of peace and quiet: pitches have splendid views over the surrounding farmland and woods, all part of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The plots have been deliberately well spaced to give you plenty of room, so it may be that your nearest ‘neigh’-bours will be horses Rosie and Rusty in their paddock.
Well-behaved dogs and human folk are invited to explore the miles of walking paths that lie beyond; you need only amble across the adjacent field to join the Waskerley Way. Kids need not even stray very far to let off steam, as they can just wander over to the site’s play area for a bit of swing and slide action.
Everything you need for a comfy stay has been supplied here – a cosy heated shower block was installed in 2017 and includes useful bits and bobs like hairdryers to keep the travelling barnet in check.
Open from 09/02/2019 to 31/12/2019

When you turn off the A68 follow the road until you see a stone house in front of you. Follow the road around to the left and the site is 300 yards on the right.
Make the most of your rural location by getting your walking boots on or taking to your bike to hit the trails that crisscross this scenic area. Getting to the Waskerley Way requires you only to cross one adjacent field, and then you can join this route across the moors, past the Waskerley and Smiddy Shore reservoirs and to Hownsgill Viaduct, towering 46 metres above the woodland canopy.
Other fab walks can be had around Derwent Reservoir, 20 minutes away; you can dangle a rod into the water here too, to see if you can snag one of the lake’s trout (rumour has it they can weigh up to 20lb). Cyclists, meanwhile, can find some top routes at Hamsterley Forest, 50 minutes away, or get their pulses racing on the downhill tracks at Descend Bike Park (25 minutes).
For family-friendly attractions, head to Hall Hill Farm 15 minutes away, for lots of furry adventures riding the donkeys, feeding the llamas and watching the sheep race, or take a trip on the steam trains of Weardale Railway, 25 minutes away. Also 25 minutes away is Diggerland Durham, where kids of all ages (even ones who sometimes claim to be grownups) can drive lots of different vehicles and take lots of pics of them doing so too.
