History Of GreenFoot Holiday Home Park

Greenfoot Holiday Home Park - A Location Steeped in History

In the 13th century, Greenfoot was included in the Bishop of Durham's hunting grounds. It was originally owned by the Church Commissioners, but later became a sawmill and then a plantation. Eventually, a local businessman received permission to convert the land into a caravan park, and that's how it evolved.

A family run caravan park

Since 1991, the Crow family has owned and operated Greenfoot with three generations actively involved in its management. They have taken a hands-on approach to the business and achieved a great deal, including upgrading underground services, developing pitches, updating car parks and roadways, modifying buildings, and carrying out extensive re-landscaping.

Over the past 29 years, the family's careful management has resulted in Greenfoot becoming the distinctive park it is today, with a focus on attention to detail. The younger generation is quietly becoming involved and getting to know people in the park, recognizing the importance of maintaining high standards to preserve Greenfoot's excellent reputation.

One of three Weardale caravan parks

In addition to running Greenfoot Holiday Home Park, the Crow family also manages two associated parks, Weardale Holiday Home Park and Brotherlee Holiday Home Park, which are located slightly further up the magnificent valley of Weardale.
