Our Customer Testimonials
Here’s what some of our happy customers have to say.
We enjoyed our stay with you as Heatherview is a well run and picturesque site. The caravan was very well maintained and your efforts to provide a safe environment in which to stay is most evident.
We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be returning. Lovely well kept park with some lovely walks to take our dog on.
Our caravan was lovely, very very clean and spacious, it was our first ever caravan holiday and so we were very pleasantly surprised, the park itself is spotless and beautifully cared for. We used it as a base to visit Seaham Beach and Bamburgh, the UNESCO site and the dog walks on the doorstep are fabulous. If you take your dog , be aware there are a lot of rabbits! We would certainly stay at one of Verdant Leisure Parks again if the standard was the same as Heather View.
Park is beautiful. Staff lovely. Would love to return . I realise now why its always fully booked. No complaints from us.
See you all soon, thanks so much Gary and Lynn Coates.
Mrs and Mrs Coates
Heather View is set in a beautiful location, handy for visiting the Durham Dales and very peaceful.
This is a great, family friendly site. Well maintained and in a lovely, peaceful setting. The children loved the play area and we all enjoyed the local walks particularly along the Weardale Way straight off the site and along the river into Stanhope. The caravan was very nice with everything we needed. It was good to be able to sit out on the picnic bench.
Having return from our second stay at Heatherview with our grandchildren, the first being a Luxury lodge and this stay a deluxe caravan both being of a excellent standard and couldn't fault any thing about either. Our stay was amazing as we all love this site, the sense on arrival at reception is second to none...
...The tranquil feeling you get is like no other and you feel as if you're in a different world. All staff are very helpful and friendly and answer any question you may have. Even looked at caravans to buy and made some inquiries which at the moment can only be a dream, but some times dreams do come true. When we left our car journey home was quiet and cant wait to return to this amazing site and as we call it our happy place.
Gorgeous site. Grounds are immaculate along with the caravan. Some beautiful walks to go on straight from the site. One of them was to Stanhope, lovely little village with local bakery, shops and pubs. We will definitely be returning, thanks for having us!
Superb from arrival to departure, friendly staff, whole site in tip-top condition. Looking forward to next visit already.
Lovely stay. Staff were fantastic. Definitely would stay again.
Fantastic park definitely deserve the 5 star award they have. Caravan very clean and well maintained with comfy beds and soft towels and good bedding. Staff very friendly and helpful on arrival. Park in an ideal place for visiting local areas and plenty of walking within easy reach, without having to take the car. We were a couple but the park seemed family friendly with play areas and children's entertainment in the bar/restaurant. We would definitely return here next time we visit the area.
Lovely caravan, well equipped. Great staff and site, would look forward to experiencing this in the summer.
Excellent site and gorgeous lodge.
The park is well maintained even in winter so would look super in the summer. Caravan was well maintained and spotless, will definitely book again with Verdant Leisure.
Absolutely fantastic site cant recommend it enough, we will be back.
Excellent weekend away the best caravan we have ever stayed in! The site was lovely and clean. The caravan was immaculate and comfortable. The bar was nice and staff were friendly. Highly recommended.
Absolutely fabulous experience, I came away for my birthday, staff were kind enough to leave wine, chocolates and a card. The maintenance guys saw me with my bonnet up on my car before setting off for home and stopped to check I was ok. They didn't know I was only topping up my screen wash, which shows how much they care about the people who stay here. Lovely food and service in the restaurant and an absolutely beautiful Lodge. I had an amazing time.
Love this place, even though it rained most of the time, still enjoyed walking around in the rain with the dog.
Excellent break. 2nd time in a fortnight. The caravans are spotless and everything is good quality. Its such a family friendly site, even the bar has games,colouring books, crayons etc to keep the little ones happy and the food is excellent value and tasty.
Thank you for a lovely weekend, the weather was cold but we were snug and warm in our lodge. Also for the extras balloons and chocolates, that made it special. The security guard went out of his way to accommodate us when we arrived later in the evening.
This was our first visit to Heather View and we loved every minute of it. The staff were very kind and helpful, everywhere was clean and tidy and our caravan was amazing. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

From start to finish our holiday was fantastic. Nothing was too much for the team. Restaurant was excellent and great value for money. The surrounding grounds were beautiful and the park was great for the kids. Will be returning as I enjoyed my stay so much.
Excellent holiday, amazing location and scenery. Park was spotless and facilities, staff and bar were brilliant.

A credit to the company. The site is very well maintained and staff very friendly. Surrounding area picturesque with beautiful walks and a pretty stream. Would return in a heartbeat.
Fabulous relaxing environment. We stayed in a lodge which provides home from home accommodation. The parks for the children are great. The pub/restaurant on site offers plenty choice at reasonable prices.
Stayed at Heather View for a short break last week. Was pleasantly surprised with the caravan we stayed in. It was spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Bed was comfortable and towels were lovely and soft. Would stay here again and recommend to anyone.
A fabulous park with lovely caravans and very friendly staff.
Just back from a 4 night break at Heatherview, cannot find one fault with this park. Cannot wait to return.
We had a fabulous Holiday in a tranquil setting, where all on site had consideration for each other. Makes all the difference.
A very satisfactory stay, quiet and peaceful in beautiful surroundings. A pleasant 15 minute walk takes you into the beautiful village of Stanhope.
A lovely weekend break with fantastic accommodation. Staff in the bar were fantastic and great with the children.
Really modern caravan and really clean, well kept site. Friendly staff.
It was a pleasure from the start, at reception, and until we left at the end of our week. The staff at Heather View were lovely and very friendly, especially the young lady at the bar who told us lots of places we could go (as we had our dog) for some beautiful days out through the stunning countryside. The caravan had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, the bed linen was immaculate. Thank you to heather view staff, well done, we will come back.
We have visited non stop over the past year and a half. Lovely park whatever the weather. Plenty to do and see. Love this place.

The Sheild Family
Heather View is a superb site in a beautiful location. A rural retreat with easy access to towns and villages in Weardale and beyond. We chose accommodation (a lodge) which allowed us to have our dog with us ... it was perfect. He had a ball! We have already booked our next stay, later this year with dogs and grandchildren so impressed were we with our first experiences of this site.
I would firstly like to thank the team very much for arranging balloons and banners for my Son's 5th Birthday upon our arrival to the caravan. It was such a fantastic surprise and very much appreciated as it was such a special touch.
The accommodation was excellent. It was very warm and comfortable. I like the flat screen tv. The location of the park was good overlooking the river Wear. I liked that it was a quiet park.
Lovely site and facilities. Great watching all the wildlife, rabbits and pheasants around the park. Lovely walk to the centre of Stanhope by the river.
The park is well set out, and until you walk round you don't realise how big it is.
Beautiful views on a very well kept park which we have visited several times with our dog. Lovely walks from the doorstep and plenty of easily accessible local amenities. Weardale is a beautiful area and this park has a fabulous location. Suitable for all age groups.
I visited Heather View Leisure Park with two friends and our babies. Our caravan was modern, very clean, well maintained and exceeded our expectations. We also had a lovely view of surrounding hills and countryside. The reception staff were welcoming, efficient and helpful...we would definitely return to this site and would also visit any Verdant Leisure Park. Thanks for a fantastic trip!
Booked Heather View on a special deal. The caravan was spotless and well equipped. Very comfy cosy. My wife, the dogs and I loved the caravan, had a brill and chilled stay. Heather View site is spotless and well maintained by the team working there.
Loved it, caravan excellent.
This is our 4th visit to Heather View and once again 10 out of 10. Very clean park and very friendly staff. We had an issue with faulty item, it was sorted immediately. Very impressed nothing was a chore, great work, keep it up. Thank you all.
The whole family enjoyed the stay and felt welcome.
An absolutely beautiful park to stay on, so clean and well laid out with a lot to offer. Surrounded by nature everywhere you look (fall asleep to the sound of owls and wake up to the sound of the woodpeckers). The staff couldn't be more helpful and the accommodation was perfect for our family week away. Highly recommend to anyone looking to escape. Our little dog really enjoyed his time here and we all look forward to returning.
Lovely park location, lots to see and do nearby.
We loved our stay at Heather View, the surrounding area is interesting and beautiful. We loved the river walks with our dog. The lodge was fantastic. Thank you.
Caravan extremely clean and well equipped. Shower was great, beds very comfortable, compact bedrooms but adequate. Site clean and well maintained and helpful staff.
Stayed at Heather View in a lodge but also was there for New Year in a caravan cant fault the site, staff or accommodation and the view is lovely. Stayed at 4 of Verdant Leisure sites and everyone more than exceeds expectations in all aspects. Over the past year I have holidayed with Verdant Leisure 8 times and wouldn't book anywhere else now as the quality and price of holidays can't be beaten in my opinion.
Heather View is a lovely quiet site with luxurious caravans, and we really enjoyed our weekend there. Everything was immaculately clean and the staff were really friendly. Would definitely recommend and return again.
A lovely well maintained park. We stayed in a deluxe lodge which was excellent, very clean and lots of space.
This is an excellent park with lovely views. Well situated and very well looked after.
My family and I loved our New Year's break away. The 4 children, aged from 11 to 15 had a lovely time. I would absolutely recommend this stunning place and would love to come back.
Stayed in 3 bed lodge over the New Year. Lodge was very spacious and clean. Overall we had a great enjoyable short break and would stay again.
Beautiful park and surroundings, spotless accommodation. We had a great relaxing short break.
Amazing location, in beautiful surroundings, friendly helpful staff and fantastic accommodation. Clean, new and modern furnishings. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending this site to anyone as it surpassed our expectations. We'll be back.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the accommodation was of very good quality. All staff were helpful, friendly and efficient especially when the power to our lodge tripped out. It was fixed within 10 minutes of calling it in.
I highly recommend staying at Heather View lodges. They are of magnificent quality and cleanliness. We went for a relaxing weekend in November for our anniversary and that's exactly what we had. Extremely helpful staff too.
Beautiful park, nestled in nature.
I would like to say that we enjoyed our four nights at Heather view. All the staff that we met were friendly and helpful. The surrounding country side was beautiful. The caravan we stayed in was clean, roomy and came fully equipped.
Amazing been here several times, we keep ourselves to ourselves and so don't use the site facilities so can't comment on these. Place is spotless and deluxe caravan is beautiful with little touches like the TV in bedroom and pelmets at windows. Great country walks and nice little shopping area in Stanhope. Didn't want to leave our lovely warm, comfy caravan.
Fantastic park in a beautiful location. The lodge we stayed in had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. Very clean and comfortable.
A lovely scenic site with great access to the local village. Well positioned for walks in the nearby Durham Dales. If peace and quiet are what you seek...this is the perfect site.
We have just returned from a weekend break at Heather View. My husband and I had the most relaxing and enjoyable stay. The caravan, a deluxe, was superb. Spotlessly clean. The bedding was of a high standard as was all the crockery, etc. The park is well equipped, clean, and very secure. We cannot wait to return in the new year.
Lovely wooded park, family orientated, staff friendly and helpful.
A great and relaxing time had at Heatherview. Park is very well maintained and the lodge we stayed in was fantastic.
Our lodge was lovely and relaxing as well as the surroundings. We couldn't use the bar or restaurant as these were currently under renovation but we are looking forward to book again in the future so we can experience more on the site and to take full advantage of the bar area. Will definitely recommend Heather View to our friends and family.
Excellent holiday. Caravan very good, clean and modern. We went to Stanhope in Durham, stunning location, and plenty of walks even for us, as we are not walkers, and are pensioners.
Stayed at Heather View park many times and enjoyed the full experience of having a break away. Both the caravans and lodges are lovely to stay in and the staff are all very friendly and will help you in any way they can.
A lovely, well kept, exceptionally clean park. With stunning countryside all around. Highly recommended by us.
Lovely place to stay, lovely clean and well kept site. The deluxe caravan was in a beautiful position over looking the Weardale hills and countryside. Would recommend Verdant Leisure and Heather View!
We always try to have a holiday with the dogs in Sept/Oct and I was brought up in the local area so this was an ideal place to stop on a visit with my family to call on relatives and old friends. We took our 2 dogs who like us loved the surrounding area for walks. The lodge was more than we expected, very clean and comfortable, felt like home from home. The park itself is very clean and tidy and the staff helpful and friendly . We have already booked for next year .
Excellent Holiday Park in a very nice setting. The Park is extremely well maintained with Caravans to a very high spec of cleanliness and everything needed to have an enjoyable stay was included.
Our first visit to a caravan park and we were very impressed with the accommodation. Everything was provided, for what was needed and the caravan was spotlessly clean. The little shop was adequately stocked up with everyday essentials and the bar and restaurant were good. The meals we had were well worth the money we spent and the food was piping hot. All staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall we had a very enjoyable weeks stay.
Good Location and spacious. I would like to thank security person, who was very kind to turning on heating system due to our late check-in and took us to the accommodation at midnight. Accommodation was very spacious and included washing machine and dishwasher. Also the location was very beautiful. Sales person Paul was very helpful on providing information about caravan and the location.

Very good we had a nice break thank you.
Excellent site, deserving of a 5 star rating.
I really enjoyed my holiday. The lodge was immaculate with top quality bedding and towels. The facilities in the lodge were great e.g. kitchen appliances. Also the showers were powerful not a dismal trickle! In fact it was a pleasure to spend time here.
We had a fabulous few days away at Heather View in a wheelchair friendly caravan that looked brand new. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped in a peaceful part of the site. The beds were comfortable and the wet room was perfect for our needs. The caravan was well equipped and even provided a tea towel and dish cloth and washing up liquid.
Excellent service. Excellent maintained park and the scenery breathtaking.
Heather View Leisure Park in Stanhope is set in beautiful countryside and very peaceful. The site is very well maintained and the standard of caravans are excellent.
A quiet and pleasant site situated off the beaten track but very close to amenities.
This is an amazing place to stay, staff great, caravans great and the park is beautiful. I cannot fault this peaceful immaculate site. Heather View is set in a lovely location with great walks around, close to Stanhope which in itself is a lovely place to visit.

The park was clean and quiet. Just what we needed for a relaxing break.
5 star site with stunning views and very helpful site staff.
We stayed at Heather View and had a very relaxing stay in a lodge, which was really clean and spacious. All the Verdant team were friendly and helpful full of information about days out and the local area. The girls in the bar were great with the children and brought us out a football for them to play with.
We had a really lovely stay at Heather View. The caravan was modern and well equipped, friendly and helpful staff and there was great play parks for our little boy.
Had a great weekend here. Lovely caravan clean and warm. Lovely scenery plenty of rabbits and pheasants running around camp . Nice and peaceful too. Was met by a lovely receptionist very nice manner. Would definitely be back.
Our favourite place in the world, we have been coming to our caravan for over 14 years and still love every minute summer or winter. Amazing place to bring up your family, keeps them all nice and close.
The park is so pleasant and friendly… a great escape from work when you want to just come and relax and totally chill out
Sean Conn and Debra Barnes
The holiday home we have, we love, and it's enjoyed very much. The staff are always very helpful
Mr and Mrs Olley
We have been holiday home owners on the site for 25 years, and have had a great experience bringing the children and grandchildren to the site on weekends and making memories. We love to go for walks and trips out around the local area.
Best site - it's family friendly and very peaceful
A beautiful park on which to own a holiday home. The views are breathtaking no matter what time of year and there are always things to do and see in the surrounding countryside. It's relaxing and a fabulous place to go to get away from the pressures of everyday life. The villagers in the surrounding area are all very welcoming.
The site and the area are good places to spend time.
Lovely clean park with great maintenance team.
Cher Starling Bell
Everything we could want on the site, we're very happy with the park.
We've been on Heather View for about 15 years and it's a lovely well kept park. Always pleasant staff from reception, ground staff and the staff in the Crazy Bear.
I absolutely love my holiday home and have met some lovely people here at Heather View.
This is an excellent park, good location, good pub, great staff!
Have been on Heather View for a number of years and still get that warm feeling when we cross the bridge and turn into the park, love that feeling - I'm here and chilled ready to relax for a few days, there's nothing better.
Lovely park and staff!
Very friendly park, lots for all the family to do on park & locally. Staff very friendly & approachable. No hard sales from the team. Well worth a visit.

Small friendly park in a nice location, which has improved since Verdant Leisure took it over.
The park is always impeccable and the maintenance staff are really helpful.
My family loved staying at Heather View. Staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Thank you.
We had a 3 day stay here ally it was so relaxing. We looking forward to going back soon. The children loved it couldn't fault anything.
Although February we arrived for a quite break, the Caravan was brand new, central heating - you would never have known there was snow on the floor. Everything we needed was provided, although I booked the travel cot, I must admit I didn't read that it did not come with bedding, but the staff were very kind to supply me extra bedding, for the cot. Thank You.
Second stay here in two months, kids and myself think it is great. Caravans are immaculate, lovely duvets and pillows, white fluffy towels. Will be back as soon as we can for another long weekend.
Excellent park in lovely setting would definitely stay here again. Stayed in a lodge which was modern, very roomy and spotlessly clean. Dog friendly allowed in pool room of bar area so we could still have a drink. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this park.
Amazing stay here, restaurant and food was fantastic, caravan photos didn't do it justice, but is definitely a 5 star caravan that we stopped in. Loved it and will be returning.
We stayed in a luxury lodge between Xmas and New Year and it was absolutely fantastic. So cosy and comfortable, and really spacious. The park setting is lovely, and the village of Stanhope is so pretty. Really enjoyed our stay.
The young lady in reception was excellent, even popped along to make sure all was ok on Christmas Eve.
My family had an amazing time at Heather View. The lodge was fab. A big thank you to the cleaning staff, bar manager, bar staff and kitchen staff for great food. Great entertainment, the kids had a great time would definitely come back .
Having never stayed in a lodge before, it exceeded our expectations. Well worth the extra money.
Great staff. This was our second visit this year. Clean areas, great food and a great area to visit. We will come back again, the staff make you feel right at home.

We stayed at the Heatherview caravan park recently. The staff were very helpful the caravan was spotless. The on site restaurant was very good, we would recommend this park.
Stayed at Heatherview in one of their lodges and what a treat it was, from lovely views to a spacious clean lodge. The booking was done easily over the phone with help off Sarah, Terri and the rest of the staff and the girls at Heatherview were also very helpful with any information we needed. Can't wait to go back again .
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have already made arrangements to return next year. Everything was perfect, the caravan was beautiful and fully equipped with everything we needed. Our little one loved the park and play area in the Clubhouse. Many thank for making our stay amazing.
Our holiday at Heather View can only be described as wonderful. The site was incredibly clean and well kept. Peace and quiet was the order of the day. The staff were friendly and helpful and made our stay stress free.
Great park, friendly staff, very clean and well maintained. Caravan was spotless, even left a gift box with tea, sugar, coffee, tea towel and washing up liquid. It was nice, we will come back again.
We booked the caravan with the disabled bathroom for my mother in law which she was very pleased with. The food was excellent and good value for money and there was plenty of it. Thank you for a lovely stay.
We have been owners at Heather View for over eight years now. The site is always clean & tidy, the staff are approachable and the club house is good.
Quite simply, a fantastic place to chill and unwind.
Since we moved our holiday home to Heather View, we have never looked back. It's so relaxing and picturesque. When we visit our holiday home it's so relaxing - we just chill. We love to see all the wildlife and it's such a break from our working life.

Fabulous, peaceful, relaxing place to have what we view as our second home.

A first class site that is excellently run.
We really enjoyed our stay in an adapted caravan, the park is well kept and the staff are excellent.
Fabulous park in a fabulous area. We had a lovely relaxing break and will certainly visit again. We have stayed at three different Verdant Leisure parks - they are all excellent. Thank you Heather View for our latest stay.
