Snail Spaces: Cow Green reservoir

High up Teesdale, Cow Green Reservoir is at the heart of what is known as “England’s last great wilderness”. It is wild and woolly and extremely beautiful. The fells are home to a number of rare species and there are extensive prospects for walking. 

The car parking area at the reservoir is split into a number of smaller car parks. When we were last there three vans were parked for the night but each of us had a separate area and plenty of privacy and peace.

Picnic tables, one temporary toilet, information boards and contributions box.

Surprisingly, we had both phone and Internet signals.

Last Visit: August 2017

Snail Spaces: Dunbeath Harbour

Motorhomes are welcome in Dunbeath. Toilets are close by and picnic tables available. Dog walking along the beach and river, extensive walks back up river on the other side of the A9. Shop up in the village.

Drive along to the harbour and keep on going past the spot where you think you should stop. There is a parking area beyond the ice house and behind the empty cottage below the cliff.

It is a popular and busy spot, with many cars coming and going so please park considerately.

Quiet. Poor radio signal, no phone or internet.

Please leave a donation in the box in the boat house collection box.
