Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

After passing through Hill End from Frosterley, take the next left down to Low Bollihope Farm and Fineburn Caravan Park. You can either park where the two farmhouses are (it’s a minute’s walk to the chalet from here) or continue onto an unmade road for another 100 yards. This is steep and requires you to point your car up towards two other chalets then reverse slowly down to your chalet, keeping the dry stone wall on the right and using the edge of the scrub land to the left. Parking for two cars if needed.
Along its 77-mile length, the Weardale Way roughly follows the course of the River Wear, taking in woods, farmland, moors and villages as it meanders. To make it a bit more manageable it’s been divided into ten smaller sections, all of which make for a lovely day’s rural ramble.
If you want to get max value out of your walking shoes, there are plenty more places to give them a workout nearby. 2000-hectare Hamsterley Forest is around 20 minutes away by car, with lots of trails for walking, cycling and horse riding and themed routes for kids. Spectacular High Force waterfall is about a half-hour drive away, and there are some fab seaside walks to be had along the Durham Heritage Coast 40 minutes away.
Much of Durham, half an hour away by car, has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site – get your history fix taking in the city’s cathedral, castle and university buildings, or drive a little further to the Georgian and Victorian-themed open-air museum in Beamish.
