Welcome to Grassholme

We are County Durham’s only sailing and watersports club. Located at Grassholme Reservoir near Middleton in Teesdale, in the North Pennines National Landscape, we have 49 hectares of water which allows plenty of space for learning, racing, cruising and paddling. The Waterside Park provides a circular walk of 4 miles, and links to the Pennine Way and other footpaths.
