Hillcrest Park is our rural 6-acre holiday park in Teesdale, nestled between the North Pennines AONB and the Yorkshire Dales.

Surrounded by farmland, we offer peace, tranquillity and beautiful views of Teesdale – yet we are only 10mins from the A66. We are ideal for walkers, cyclists, dog owners or anyone just looking for a relaxing, rural break. Hillcrest is situated handily close to both Richmond and Barnard Castle, within easy reach of many Dales attractions, as well as the historic cities of Durham and York. Further afield, both the Lakes and Yorkshire coastline are all doable daytrips.

We have holiday cottages, seasonal pitches, holiday lodges for sale as well as camping pods. Most importantly, we aim to offer all our guests a comfortable, peaceful rural getaway.


As of 17 May 2021, we have reopened on a limited capacity basis to ensure social distancing can be kept.  We have opened the amenity building, including showers/loos, but in accordance with Government Guidelines we are limiting the amount of people who can use the facilities at any one time. We will not be reopening the shop, nor will we be hiring out airbeds. 

The cottages are all self-contained



We (Ed and Kate Nichols) have owned and run Hillcrest Park since March 2011. We started with three cottages and a few touring pitches, but over time we have gradually expanded and we now have five holiday cottages, 20 touring pitches, 10 glamping pods, and now holiday lodges for sale.
