Lambs and Caravans

Lambs and Caravans

The start of the 2017 season is nearly upon us! It doesn't seem like two minutes since we closed up the park in October. I have to say that it doesn't quite feel 'Spring like' enough yet to believe that in 5 weeks time it will be all lambs and caravans; as we prepare to open for the first weekend of the season and will have just started lambing! 

2017 will see a couple of changes here on the Caravan Park and farm. Firstly, we have moved the reception and Caravan Park office away from the farmhouse, and to near the entrance of the Caravan Park. All payments, gas orders and any other caravan enquiries will now be dealt with this at this new location. We're also happy to say that shop hours have changed, and we will now be open everyday apart from Tuesday. On Saturday to Monday we will be open from 9.00-11.30 and 14.00-17.00, and on Wednesday to Friday we will be open from 10.00-11.30 and 14.00-17.00. Although, just as normal, there will be someone on site at all times. It's also important to note that the phone number for the Caravan Park is no longer 01833 640317, and is now...

Secondly, we will be lambing a small flock of Jacob sheep for the first time on the farm in over 16 years! The ewes were scanned in early January, and from this we can tell that they are all in lamb, and should be due from the 1st of March onwards (although the impatient ones may turn up a little early...). 

Our facebook and twitter pages are a great way of keeping up to date with what is happening at the Caravan Park and farm, so why not follow us on there?

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.
