The Caravan Club opened its second new site in as many months at the start of the August.

Following on from the opening of the new Littlehampton site in July, Teesdale Barnard Castle Caravan Club Site opened on the 1st August. The new 76-pitch, eight acre site is a great place to explore the stunning North Pennine countryside.

As well as the first-class washroom and laundry facilities Club members expect, the £1.5m investment also includes sustainable energy-saving features used elsewhere on the site network, including ground source heat exchangers, rainwater recovery and solar water heating.

Landscaping of the new site was planned in consultation with local conservationists to boost biodiversity and minimise the visual impact of the site on the surrounding countryside.

For caravanners wanting to minimise the driving while away, Teesdale is a great spot for a break. The new site is a 10-minute stroll along the River Tees from the pretty town of Barnard Castle. For more serious walking, the Teesdale Way and Pennine Way are both nearby along with England’s highest waterfall, pub, and market town.

“I’m very excited about how this wonderful site has come together in a major investment, exclusively for Club members,” comments Catherine Ford, Head of Sites Marketing.

“It has everything our members have come to expect from a Club site, and the area has all they could wish for to make a perfect holiday or short break, whatever their interests.”

Full details of the Teesdale Barnard Castle are on the Caravan Club website.
