    Have stayed at the Rowing Club one, nice spot by the river. Last year they were laying out new hard standings so not in the car park now.:thumb:

    Durham where to stay

    Finchale Priory seems like a good location; on a bend in the river Wear and handy for the city. Beware the Park and Ride near the University campus, though; it closes at 7 p.m. and the last bus is at 6.30 or thereabouts. Have a good time!

    Baxter Wood farm is a cracking CL in Durham, we always stay there. It is all grass, no electric but there are some cracking walks directly from the site.

    Only £5 a night, about 20 mins walk into Durham.

    Paul.
