Bobby Shafto Caravan Park


We are a family orientated business with years of experience in catering for visitors of all ages looking to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Beamish countryside. Close proximity to the Beamish Open Air Museum and the historic cathedral city of Durham. Many woodland walks, access to fishing and golf. The Howay Inn is our on site communal club house providing entertainment for all ages.

As well as our traditional camping options we've recently installed a number of eco-friendly camping pods- a great alternative to pitching a tent! The pods have plenty of headroom and most can accommodate two adults and small children. You will just need to bring your basic camping equipment,minus the tent!
