Bonners Lodge: View from the back of the park

General

  • Friendly site with rural views 15 minutes' drive from Consett
  • A short walk from the Waskerley Way trail for walking and cycling
  • Spacious pitches with access to heated shower block

A warm welcome awaits at Bonners Lodge, where chief of staff Raffi the cat oversees a small team of humans, dogs, horses, pygmy goats, alpacas, a donkey and a Shetland pony at this friendly family-run site. Officially it’s Ken and Michelle that own the place, but there’s always a helping hand from canine pals Sam, Bess and Charlie…

Make the five-minute drive from the A68 and settle yourself in for a hefty dose of peace and quiet: pitches have splendid views over the surrounding farmland and woods, all part of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The plots have been deliberately well spaced to give you plenty of room, so it may be that your nearest ‘neigh’bours will be horses Rosie and Rusty in their paddock.

Well-behaved dogs and human folk are invited to explore the miles of walking paths that lie beyond; you need only amble across the adjacent field to join the Waskerley Way. Kids need not even stray very far to let off steam, as they can just wander over to the site’s play area for a bit of swing and slide action.

Everything you need for a comfy stay has been supplied here – a cosy, heated and modern shower block includes useful bits and bobs like hairdryers to keep the travelling barnet in check.

    In the games room/washing up room the light sensor was far too either sensitive or insensitive. The lights went on with movement but if you were standing doing the washing up went off after 5 seconds!

    Hi

    Just back from Bonners Lodge, had a lovely couple of days on site whilst traveling back from Scotland. I must say that it was one of the nicest sites for facilities that we have ever stayed at the showers and toilets were more like you would find in a hotel rather than a campsite. There was also a kitchen and games room which had full facilities cooker, microwave, fridge and freezer. It also had table tennis, pool, TV and DVD player if you wanted to use them as well as books and games to borrow. After a late arrival Ken showed me to my pitch and gave a full tour of the site it's facilities etc, this was at 9 O'clock. The next day we were greeted by the site of two alpacas being lead around the pitches for the campers to meet, followed by a couple of pigmy goats it was great.

    Wow. What a great site. Fabulous location, very friendly site. The pitches were well spaced out. The shower and toilet facilities were very clean and spacious. There is also a family/games room which can be booked out (as per COVID) rules which has various games, TV and cooking facilities. There are lots of animals to see and admire, horse, pony, pigmy goats, alpacas etc. The motorhome/caravan site has many sculptures carved out of wood dotted around - they are captivating and really stunning. Ken, Michelle and Lyn made us very welcome. We would have no hesitation in recommending this site.

Directions


When you turn off the A68 follow the road until you see a stone house in front of you. Follow the road around to the left and the site is 300 yards on the right.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Make the most of your rural location by getting your walking boots on or taking to your bike to hit the trails that crisscross this scenic area. Getting to the Waskerley Way requires you only to cross one adjacent field, and then you can join this route across the moors, past the Waskerley and Smiddy Shore reservoirs and to Hownsgill Viaduct, towering 46 metres above the woodland canopy.

Other fab walks can be had around Derwent Reservoir, 20 minutes away; you can dangle a rod into the water here too, to see if you can snag one of the lake’s trout (rumour has it they can weigh up to 20lb). Cyclists, meanwhile, can find some top routes at Hamsterley Forest 25 minutes away, or get their pulses racing on the downhill tracks at Descend Bike Park (25 minutes).

For family-friendly attractions, head to Hall Hill Farm 15 minutes away, for lots of furry adventures riding the donkeys, feeding the llamas and watching the sheep race, or take a trip on the steam trains of Weardale Railway, 25 minutes away. Within the same distance is the famed Beamish open air museum: bag 25% discount tickets for this before setting off from the Bonners Lodge team.

Also 25 minutes away is Diggerland Durham, where kids of all ages (even ones who sometimes claim to be grownups) can drive lots of different vehicles… and take lots of pics of them doing so too.
