Nook Farm Shop & Cafe

I see this as an additional arm to my business and a great service to those people taking the opportunity to explore this beautiful part of the world! I am quite envious and it’s lovely hearing where everyone has been and are heading for! And even better to hear stories of “first timers” to the North Pennines. 

We started this venture when lockdown lifted in April 2021 and so far have had 25 camper vans and more in the pipeline.

It’s been problem free so far and I am already thinking of extending services and parking to account for the need 

I applied for an exemption licence and can host up to 5 self-contained vans per night. 

We wave off our campers confident that they have parked up somewhere with a great view and a warm welcome.

CAMpRA coming of age announcement

I am pleased to announce that CAMpRA has now taken the next step in our evolution and the leadership team has formed a NOT FOR PROFIT Company limited by guarantee.
The company is registered as CAMpRA UK Ltd.
Why have we taken this step and what does it mean to our 22,000 group members?
CAMpRA has grown from 200 members in July to over 22,000 and together with the groups associated with CAMpRA, we have access to over 600,000 motorcaravan owners.
CAMpRA is already recognised by councils, tourism and professional bodies and UK Government as the main source of information on Aires in the UK. In order to negotiate with these bodies, to have a voice within these groups and to participate as stakeholders in decisions being made that affect the future of all motorcaravan owners in the UK, we felt it was necessary to move from being a group of volunteers to being a registered company. The leadership team felt it was important to maintain free membership of our group and remain a non profit organisation.
If we continue to work together to promote the benefits of overnight parking and waste disposal points in the UK we will achieve the same freedom and welcome that we find in the rest of Europe.
