General

  • A 14-acre secluded farm site with access to the Teesdale Way

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 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 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 10 minutes' walk away and a big supermarket is in Barnard Castle within ten miles.

Please note

A charge of £0.50 ($0.65) applies for the use of the shower.

    This site is positioned in a wonderful location. It is next to the River Tees, with the village of Middleton-In-Teesdale just a 20 minute walk away and is ideal if you would like a walking break or just want to be away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The toilet and shower facilities were kept clean and the gentleman in charge was friendly and helpful. We were there during the August bank holiday and although the site was busy, we had plenty of room for our tent and did not feel penned in. Thank you for a great, memorable stay.

    This is a great little find. Wonderful views, away from traffic and a river right there for dog swims. Loads of walks to be done straight from the campsite. The toilets and shower areas are very clean and warm and there's a small shop in the reception area.
