- Peaceful farm with pond and walking paths
- Farm shop, gift shop, café and furniture for sale
- Toilet and shower blocks with disabled access
Keep the kids busy at Thorpe Farm Centre near Co. Durham's Barnard Castle... if dipping and nature spotting at the peaceful pond doesn't sway them, seeing the animals in their paddocks or the many walking paths straight from the site surely will.
The farm also has its 18th-century Peel House, home to a gift shop, a café serving breakfast and Sunday lunch, a farm shop selling fresh local produce including bread, milk, bacon, sausages and eggs, and – rather unusual but very fab – a reclamation barn selling furniture, antiques and collectables.
Facilities include toilet and shower blocks with disabled access; fresh water and a chemical disposal unit. Dogs are very welcome but must be kept on leads while on site.

From Barnard Castle
Leave the A67 / Market Place towards Kings Court. At the roundabout, take the first exit on to Newgate and proceed for one mile. Turn right towards the A66/The Street and continue for three miles. Look out for our campsite on the left.
From Scotch Corner
Leave Middleton Tyas Lane towards Scotch Corner. At roundabout, take the third exit on to A66 and continue for nine miles. Look out for our campsite on the right. If you reach Green Lane, you have gone too far.
Thorpe Farm Centre's location in Co. Durham bordering North Yorkshire on the A66 puts it in nifty position for days out of all kinds by foot, pedal or car. If you want to investigate the surrounding area by foot, a shortcut to the A66 gives access to many more walking paths as well as cycling trails; a map is available at the site shop with details.
The seventeenth century country house of Rokeby Park is just around the corner from the farm, and it's about ten minutes' drive to Barnards Castle, an old market town with pubs, shops, restaurants, the Bowes Museum and its castle high on a rock above the River Tees.
The farm is nine miles west of Scotch Corner in the countryside of Teesdale and 15 miles from Richmond in the Yorkshire Dales. Raby Castle, Eggleston Hall, High Force Waterfall (England’s highest, foam fans) and Middleton in Teesdale are also within driving distance.
