Welcome to Thorpe Farm which is situated 9 miles west of Scotch Corner on the edge of the A66 in beautiful Teesdale. Centred around an 18th Century Peel House, the licensed site offers an array of attractions for the whole family to make it a memorable day. On site are the following:-

* Coffee shop & Restaurant, Farm Shop & Gift Shop,
* Walled Garden, Trampolines & Play Area
* Function Room
* Reclamation Barn
* Heritage Wood with 6 walks ranging from 1-8 miles starting and finishing at Thorpe Farm (To be used with OS Barnard Castle & Richmond Sheet No. 92).
* Camping & Caravan Park
* Animal Paddocks

The Shop and Coffee Shop are open seven days a week from 9am - 5pm - Sunday 10am - 5pm,we only close on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day!

So why not come and visit and enjoy a relaxing coffee or meal in our pleasant Bistro or eat outside and let the children burn off some energy on the trampolines and play area.

You can browse around our beautifully refurbished shop and feast your eyes upon a wonderful selection of gifts and greetings cards. All our gorgeous Summer stock is now arriving, well worth a visit for inspirational gifts both in the food department and the gift rooms.

The Reclamation Barn has been busy too sourcing reclaimed products and has some really different pieces on sale, again well worth a browse to treat either yourself, your home or as a gift.

For those of you with a dog the recently planted Teesdale Heritage Wood is growing well and is a pleasurable place to walk. This is a community woodland project, sponsored by the Forestry Commission and consists of 8 acres of native hard wood trees. The woodland walks are free and open to the public to explore at any time and are dog friendly! On a fine day you can see right up Teesdale. The walk meanders through the paddocks now housing the animals from the park, donkeys, ponies and llamas, so why not come for a walk and enjoy the scenery and the animals, it is all free access.

Make Thorpe Farm your stop on the A66 for fresh food, fresh coffee, fresh ideas and fresh clean air!

Thorpe Farm Caravan Park was open at the beginning of 2008 it has 5 pitches of hard grass standing with hook-up, fresh water and a chemical disposal unit. New for 2011 are the toilet and shower blocks, male, female and disabled which double up as a family block. Each unit has toilets and a Shower. The site is next to our country park and is a nice quiet spot, dogs are allowed but must be under supervision.

Adjacent to the Caravan Park is our Country Park and Woodland Walk. In addition we have a series of walks, ranging from 1-8 miles, starting and finishing at Thorpe Farm, maps are available on request.

Reviews of Thorpe Farm Centre

Great farm, although the weather was not good, however we still had an okay time to bring the New Year in, this was our first Rally at Thorpe and one in which we will repeat again, however, in the better weather. We have been visiting this site for some years now and got to say, down to earth people. The cafe/restaurant is great and you get some great food. There are animals for the kids and also an exclamation yard for all those antique buffs xx

we stayed here in a tent for 1 night as our first time, we thoroughly enjoyed it, would definitely come back to Thorpe farm, very friendly,it made us want to do this again and again,,,i would just like to add that I think it would benefit from a little park down at the bottom paddock as there isn't anything for the children at that end as its all at the top and abit far for children to go by themselves.....but apart from that it was fab. thanks for our stay, Kelly from hetton le hole
