- A 35-minute walk to the butchers, supermarket and restaurants
All in for splendid views and countryside for miles…right here is a relaxing rural experience, well-situated for dog walks in the County Durham countryside and days out wildlife watching, mountain biking, hiking or investigating castles. High Woodifield is a pop-up site that’s set up on a working farm with clean, well-maintained surroundings and a few neighbouring sheep.
All good to sizzle sausages or veg skewers at sundown? Sure thing. Barbecues are permitted and Crook, the local town 35 minutes’ walk away, has a high-quality butchers, fruit shop and supermarkets. There are cafés and takeaways when you’d like a night off the role of chef, and there are two fine-dining restaurants in Fir Tree village (35 minutes’ walk) for those who like the finer things in life (at least, when on holiday).
There’s a regular bus service nearby for those who’d rather not stroll all the way to Crook. Those who are rolling off to other horizons – like Durham (20 minutes’ drive) or local nature reserves within 10 minutes’ drive of the site – will also be pleased to know that the site is just two minutes’ drive from the A68 too.
As a pop-up, peaceful High Woodifield has portaloo facilities, but you should bring your own drinkable water and heat water for your morning cuppas on a firepit.

What wildlife havens might you visit nearby? Mountain bikers and hikers will want to tackle the trails around Hamsterley Forest (40 minutes’ drive). Closer by, the Hedleyhope Fell Nature Reserve (10 minutes) has plenty of creatures crawling around the gorse and heather, including lizards and slow worms. Birdwatching is splendid at both of the above, but especially at Low Barns Nature Reserve and Visitor Centre (10 minutes), a wetland reserve alongside the river Wear.
That’s right now, but what was going on years ago in County Durham? Well, Romans would have roamed around the hilltop Binchester Roman Fort (15 minutes) and Auckland Castle (15 minutes) would have been a bishops’ palace.
Durham (20 minutes) has plenty of history too, from its Romanesque cathedral and Norman castle to the museum in the botanic garden, which has Asian and Egyptian pieces on show.
Head over to 11 Arches Park (10 minutes) to catch the Kynren outdoor show, which runs on select dates in the summer, and has live performances that bring to life different pieces of British history.
