High Force waterfall (9 miles by road or 5 miles by footpath) is spectacular, though nowadays there’s gated acess that opens after 9am and you have to pay £1.50 (50p for children). For an even more spectacular waterfall, there’s Cauldron Snout, 3 miles from the Cow Green reservoir car park (11 miles from the campsite) up the Widdybank Fell nature trail. It is more a long cataract than a waterfall and, at 200 yards long, is generally considered to be the longest waterfall in England. Medieval Raby Castle (01833 660202) is 13 miles away (about 20 minutes’ drive). If it rains, you can also seek refuge in the keep at Barnard Castle (01833 638212) or in the nearby Bowes Museum (01833 690606).
Food & Drink
There are nearer pubs in Mickleton and Middleton-in-Teesdale, including the dog-friendly Crown (01833 640381), but it’s worth your while going the extra mile or so to Eggleston where The Moorcock Inn (01833 650102) and The Three Tuns (01833 650289) vie for your attention.
