The Durham Dales area can rightly be described as part of England’s green and pleasant land and a joy for hikers and walkers exploring the valleys, rolling hills, moors and winding rivers that encompass Weardale and Teesdale. The landscape of the countryside, with market towns and pretty villages set against the backdrop of the North Pennines, is diverse. Quite apart from its outstanding natural beauty the Durham Dales provide an ideal tranquil location to relax and wind down from the daily pressures of everyday life.
If you rent a caravan in Durham it will provide an accommodation base from which you can set out on an exciting journey of discovery and activity.
Places to visit
Spend time in Stanhope, the green and tranquil market town in Weardale, with craft shops and quaint tea rooms. Middleton in Teesdale is an excellent forestry area and if you walk to High Force, the most awe inspiring and highest waterfall in England, you’ll see the water from the River Tees dropping down 22 metres (71 feet) as it continues on its meandering journey.
If you are a history buff, a visit to Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle is a must. Steeped in history, you’ll be able to view outstanding treasures of days gone by.
One of the most outstanding examples of medieval architecture in England is the 14th century Raby Caste. Its impressive gardens and parkland are entirely walled and you may well catch sight of roe or fallow deer herds that thrive on the estate.
If you are feeling energetic you might want to go cycling or horse riding through Hamsterley Forest or perhaps just take a leisurely walk.
Durham city is positively vibrant, with many visitors all year round who come to view the breath-taking Cathedral and Castle and to spend time browsing the superb collection of shops; or to spend a sunny afternoon in a boat on the River Wear, taking in the amazing riverside views.
