A TYNE Valley camping site was among the star turns on a hit Channel 4 reality show.

Langley Dam Glamping, which provides en-suite accommodation in glamping cabins, recently featured on popular show Four in a Bed, hoping to win over guests with its unique holiday experience.

The TV show challenges four sets of B&B owners to visit each other’s businesses and rate them, before deciding whether or not to pay the full amount it costs to stay there.

Owners of the glamping business, Jo Bates and Kelly White, were joined by the owners of No 16 in Seaham, inn owners from Perthshire and a couple who run a B&B in Whitby.

The pair started the glamping experience 18 months ago and have gone from strength to strength since.

Jo said: “We started the business up as a fun diversification concept and something new for the area.

“It seems to be doing very well and people are really enjoying it.”

The idea behind Langley Dam Glamping was to take advantage of the site’s picturesque surroundings, while providing an increasingly popular form of accommodation.

The four ‘Langley Longboat’ cabins are positioned on the bank of Langley Dam Reservoir, providing views over the 14 acres of water and towards Whitfield moor.

The site is also located near a commercial fly fishery and Troutmaster water.

The pair took the call from the Four in a Bed’s research team which asked them if they would be interested in taking part.

“They said they wanted to feature a glamping style type of accommodation like ours on the show,” Jo said.

And in a bid for a bit of fun, and business promotion, the pair accepted the challenge.

Jo added: “It was quite full on. We were up against four other businesses and had to do our best to wow and win over the guests.

“The majority of the contestants, like us, were new to our businesses so it was the level of experience was quite equal.”

By featuring on the big screen. Jo and Kelly hope the campsite’s TV success will see more people visit the campsite.

Langley Dam Glamping remains open amid the coronavirus outbreak, with the owners closely following government advice.
