A CHEESE farm has been voted the best campsite in the northeast – and you can spend the night there.

Even better, you can get handmade local cheese for breakfast.

Cheesedale, run by Allison and Jonathon, are also known as Teesdale Cheesemakers in Bishop Auckland.

You can spend the night in one of their two off-grid cabins, named Ash and Holly.

Each one sleeps two people and has a kitchen or an outdoor firepit and BBQ area on the decking.

If you need to warm up, there is a woodfired hot tub outside, while each lodge is fully insulated with a hot air heater.
