We can't wait to see you 

Wetheriggs Animal Rescue is easy to find, situated on the A66 between Barnard Castle and Scotch Corner. The centre is found at Thorpe Farm Centre which is also a caravan and camping site. There is a cafe and farm shop on site.


We are about 40 minutes from Penrith, and 15 minutes from Darlington. Look out for signs for Thorpe Farm Centre and caravan and camping signs. The centre has two entrances from the A66, you can enter via either of these. 


Coming from the west:

the first turn off you come to takes you past the new static caravans on site. Continue past these and follow signs for the Cafe, we are located close to the cafe with plenty of parking.

You can also take the second turn off (please note, this second turn off has no slip lane). If you turn in here, you turn onto a small lane, once on this lane, take the first left to bring you to the main car park for Wetheriggs and the cafe.


Coming from the east:

the first turn off takes you onto a small lane, on your right will be our paddocks. Once on this small lane, take the first turn on the left into the main car park, you will see the cafe and our main entrance here.
