General

  • Peaceful pub site with large well-maintained pitches
  • In Bolam and five minutes from the A68
  • Beer garden, play area and a varied food menu to eat in or take away

Durham – and Darlington? And holidays in a comely countryside location… with a fine food pub and beer garden right on site? But of course… come to Countryview Caravan and Camping Site.

The Countryman pub on site has a properly hefty menu of eats to suit all tastes, including a two-for-one menu and a bargain menu for three-course meals. It's open for lunch, dinner and Sunday carvery, with takeaways available at lunchtimes and evenings (pizza, parmesans, kebabs and fish and chips being among the options), and includes a large function room for rallies or for big groups. Well-behaved dogs are allowed in the pub.

The accommodation part of the park has well spaced pitches, scenic views and a big play area. Showers and toilets are available: toilets in the bar as well as the 24-hour access on site. There are disabled facilities too, plus a parent and baby washroom, chemical disposal and a washing-up area. Free wifi is available in the pub.

Countryview's nicely and niftily placed – its peaceful rural setting is five minutes' drive from the A68, in the village of Bolam, and with plentiful shops, restaurants and cafés in Darlington within 15 minutes' drive.

    Large pitches, good views, nice outdoor play area for kids, food and drink in the onsite countryman pub were also excellent (they have strict social distancing measures and protective screens up etc in bar).

    Disliked: 

    We were on a hard standing pitch on lower side of the site and it was on a fairly steep slope so difficult to get caravan level front to back. Next time we will request a pitch on the left hand side as you drive in (which also have the views out of your front window then)

    Lovely quiet site. Peaceful and great views. Obviously staying at hugely different times so couldn’t use any on site facilities and pub was closed on the days we stayed. However, loved our stay and would happily stay here again. On our last night we had the whole site to ourselves, very special 😂

    Disliked: 

    Shame pub and facilities were closed but not the sites fault.

Local attractions

If you're at the site in summer, take yourself and the crew along to the spectacular live history show of Kynren, using a cast and crew of hundreds to tell the tale of two thousand years of English history and legend as seen by a child.

Durham has history galore all year round too: you could also steam along to Locomotion (the Shildon railway museum, within 15 minutes), Bowes Museum (25 minutes), the open-air exhibits of Beamish Museum (45 minutes) and the Kynren backdrop of Auckland Castle (15 minutes). And then there's mighty old Durham (30 minutes), home of spectacular Durham Cathedral as well as – possibly of more interest to the kids – a maze and gardens at Crook Hall.

The Hartlepool seaside town of Seaton Carew and the North Yorkshire resort of Redcar are within 40 and 45 minutes' drive for beach days; hikes and bike routes are close by, and the famed High Force waterfall is 40 minutes away. Info on local tourist attractions is at the pub.
