Mickleton Mill Caravan Park is a wonderfully peaceful and scenic family owned and managed caravan site and holiday park located in beautiful Lunedale and Teesdale and offering a range of Static Caravans, Touring Caravans or Self Catering Holiday Caravan Hire services. Whether looking for a static caravan pitch, a tourer pitch or a pitch for a seasonal tourer in Upper Teesdale, County Durham and the North Pennines AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), then the magnificent setting, peace, tranquility, facilities and personal service in what was once the most northerly of the Yorkshire Dales, is absolutely tremendous and second to none. We are located near to the beautiful stone-built villages and towns of Mickleton, Middleton-in-Teesdale, Romaldkirk, Eggleston, Cotherstone, Lartington, Barnard Castle and Staindrop and as a centre for exploration, not far from the City of Durham with its famous World Heritage Site of castle and cathedral, Weardale, Swaledale and even the Lake District and the North Yorkshire Moors and Coast.
