Camping is good for you!

We all know that camping can be fun and a provide a great outdoor experience for you and your family, but did you know that it can also be good for your health!

A recent study showed that 95 per cent of parents said their kids were happier when camping. We definitely agree with that statement!!

The Institute of Education at Plymouth University found "Children who camp in the great outdoors at least once a year go on to do better at school, as well as being healthier and happier, according to their parents"

Here at Thorpe Farm we have all the ingredients for the perfect camping experience. Located on the border of County Durham and North Yorkshire we are ideally placed for visits to Richmond, Barnard Castle and the Yorkshire Dales. To cater for our camping community, we have fresh water points throughout our site along with an amenity block.

But it doesn’t stop there! We also have a shop on site containing essential items that you may need during your stay along with delicious foods and local produce.

We have an onsite café for you to call in and sample homemade dishes from our daily menu. We have a new restaurant coming soon this Summer so keep checking our Facebook page for updates!!
