General

  • On the banks of the Tees with access to the Teesdale Way
  • Free fishing
  • Modern amenities block with underfloor heating and free showers

What a lovely little place… Co Durham's Leekworth Caravan Park is a 14-acre secluded farm site with spectacular countryside views, surrounded by the north Pennines and on the outskirts of the historic market village of Middleton-in-Teesdale.

It's a riverside park, set on the banks of the River Tees with free fishing for guests: how fab. If you're not up for fishing, this is walking land too, with miles of walking paths accessible nearby and the famed Teesdale Way cutting through the farm to join the Pennine Way.

The site's modern shower and toilet block has free showers and underfloor heating throughout; there's also a shower and toilet accessible to disabled guests, along with a covered washing-up area and chemical disposal.

Leekworth has a food shop; a well-stocked grocery shop as well as country shops and cafés are in Middleton village ten minutes' walk away and a big supermarket is in Barnard Castle within ten miles.

Lovely campsite. 17/10/2017

    Lovely campsite. Really quiet (may be due to the bad weather!). Really friendly and helpful. Good basic facilities but very clean, just what you need when camping. Only a short walk to the town to shops, pubs and cafes.

There's also a walk up the riverside footpath from the Bowless picnic area to Gibson's cave, past four small falls up to Summerhill Force.

If you want to dive into some Co Durham history, the town of Barnard Castle ten miles away has the acclaimed and handsome Bowes Museum with its collections of art, ceramics, textiles and more, and Raby Castle just outside the village of Staindrop has another art collection as well as eighteenth century gardens surrounding its big park.
