Campsite details

The Hammer and Pincers formerly known as The Blacksmiths Arms, has been owned and run by husband and wife, Peter and Rachel and Rachel’s brother Neil (Head Chef) since February 2016.

Beginning with our typical northern friendly welcome you are sure to have a relaxing stay at The Hammer and Pincers Camping and Caravan site.

Newly opened in September 2017 the set in a rural and scenic location with open views.  Conveniently situated next to a traditional country pub that serves great quality pub food and real ales.  3 miles from A1 north/south, the site is ideal for stop-overs or long weekends.

Close to major towns, Newton Aycliffe business park and many local tourist attractions.
We are licensed for 20 caravans and 10 tents. Currently we have 5 hard-standing pitches, each with electric hook-up, water and grey waste facilities and 4 camping hook-ups.  We have a basic 2 toilets and 1 shower unit which will be upgraded in the near future.
We are family friendly and dog friendly, flexible arrival and departure times.  Small well managed camp fires allowed.

The country pub is traditional in style whilst slowly being updated with a slightly more modern and contemporary look.

Well known for good food and real Ales, our menu’s of home cooked food are changed frequently with reference when possible to seasonal availability and local produce.

The pub is situated in rolling countryside while still being convenient for many nearby villages and the larger towns of Darlington,  Newton Aycliffe,  Bishop Auckland and Durham.

The pub is also a wedding venue with a difference!  Our Tipi’s or marquee are available for hire either in our own spacious garden or field or off site within a 30 mile radius. We can provide full catering and bar services for the wedding receptions held at our pub.   We can provide anything from a Hog roast or BBQ to a formal sit down meal or an informal Afternoon tea, bespoke cocktails and real ales.
