|A small perfectly situated site, overlooking the village of Bowes, with its medieval castle. The site is between the Yorkshire Dales and the North Pennines, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, and within easy reach of the Lake District. The site is only a 200 yard walk from the Ancient Unicorn Hotel, which serves food and drink, and only four miles from the historic market town of Barnard Castle, with its many restaurants, shops and bars. Local visitor attractions include the Bowes Museum, High Force, the South Tynedale Railway, Raby castle and many more. For keen walkers and dog owners, the Pennine Way and the Walney to Wear cycle ride pass through the village. The local area boasts many beautiful walks and cycle rides.|

Great site in a really convenient spot just off the A66. Good hard standing, secure gate, chem loo emtying, EHU and water. Hotel/pub close walking distance although closed for private function when we arrived .View all reviews by mcckingston
Andy is really friendly and helpful and is committed to developing the site further. Watch this space!
We live local to this site but I have been passing it for years when working in Cumbria so have slowly seen it evolve. we decided to try a night here. What a brilliant CS run by a very enthusiastic owner with some great plans inc a communal lounge with wood burner! Facilities & pitches are excellent. £15 a night with EHU. Pub is a 5 minute walk and does food. A community run social club also exists but we did not get a chance to try it. The old Bowes station is also over the road, sadly a ruin but interesting history all the same. Well recommended.View all reviews by vehiclesystems

We stayed at The Old Armoury site on 8th May. We arrived in torrential rain. Anthony, the site owner greeted us on arrival, with the warmest of welcomes, and gave lots of helpful information about his site and the local area.View all reviews by Amianrox
The site has drinking water tap, chemical toilet disposal, grey waste disposal and an eco toilet. Anthony putting in EHU at the moment. He has lots of plans for the site. Very well maintained site. £12 per night.
The site is very close to the A66 and we could hear the traffic noise but it wasn’t loud enough to be a problem. We liked the convenience of the location. Anthony said Bowes is half way between Land’s End & John O’ Groats.
We will return.
Brilliant camp site. All the pitches are as flat as a tack. Enhancements are coming with electric hook up but we quite happily stayed 7 days without it, especially at this price. Within walking distance, is a restaurant, Dickens "Nicholas Nickleby" and Bowes Castle. Barnard Castle is 10 minute drive and in half an hour, you can be in the Lake District or Darlington. Enough steam trains in the area for any enthusiast. Definitely staying again.View all reviews by roslynp
Nice well kept little site. No facilities or electric but the usual others. Owner is trying to rebuild the old buildings and turn it back to 40's style. Didn't go into village or the museum which I'm told is worth the trip.View all reviews by mike7692
