Post by grantourer »

Organised by Simon Harper and Family, at Cotherstone in Teesdale. This weekend will be based around the campsite of Doe Park ( http://www.doepark.co.uk/ ). Friday will be arrival with a Meet and Greet. Saturday will be a run out in beautiful Teesdale area, and a barbeque on Saturday night. Sunday will have another run out, with a more formal evening meal, at a local hostelry. The campsite has reserved 20 pitches with hook up for us ( pitch cost is £27.75 per pitch per night, and request we book for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights ) Bookings for the campsite open on the 8th of January 2021. To assist the campsite, and ensure we are all placed together, can you please book before March 2021, when the site opens for the season. As this will be half term, extended bookings will also be welcome. Book either by phone 01833 650302 or info@doepark.co.uk Please mention the Moke Club when you book

Once you have made your reservation with the campsite, please email Simon Harper, simon.harper4268@gmail.com and put Teesside Moke in the subject line.

We look forward to welcoming you in Teesside"

Or me John!
I'm looking round the area for B & B but not found anything at a reasonable price, I suppose it's because its near Barnard Castle. As you say John not practical for campers if the toilets and showers will not be available.
The other problem is - will it still be on given the current situation is not getting any better?

Surely their facilities will be online by the time of our 'Treat'.

Perhaps my 'dining buddy' will make some pressing enquiries to the same and let us all know, as it may have a negative impact on the number of Mokers who can attend, and that would be an awful shame !

If the event still takes place , I will probably join "Camping & caravan club " who have a camp site 6 mins away from Doe Park. Then I can get discount rates at their sites all season

Hi John,

I'll give the Doe Park a call in the morning and see what the score is. If it remains the same I'll go for plan B and join with you !

Best for 21

So John

I spoke with Doepark staff, and they said toilets and showers are closed at the moment, because the Park is actually closed, but they hope the shower block etc to be open by the time we are scheduled to be there. They said they would update their website and facebook page as soon as there was a change.

So I for one am going to stick with plan A for the foreseeable future.
