Third time at Duinrell

This was our third trip but our first booked through the CC and our first during the summer months. It was cheaper to book the ferry and site through CC this time. Our pitch was located on the Romantischkamp area and was fine for our needs. It's close to the Plaza with the supermarket and bar and restaurants. The pitch boundaries aren't clearly marked so care needs to be taken to make sure you aren't encroaching on the next pitch when you set up. The electricity supply was fairly generous (I would guess it was a 10A supply). The shared tap is a push button one so you cant rig up your water supply. The same with the waste, it is a shared hole so you can't put your own permanent pipe down there. The pitches here are grass on good draining, sandy soil. We took our own bikes and used them to get around to Leiden, Den Haag and to Sheveningen, all no more than 40 minutes away. The dedicated cycle paths are flat and safe so cycling is a pleasure rather than taking your life in your own hands like it is here. Leave the car parked up and get around by bike. Parking in the towns isn't brilliant and it can be very expensive so it makes sense. If you don't want to take your own bike you can hire one from the site. You can even rent small motor scooters to use on the cycle paths. The town of Wassenaar is straight over the road from the site with a small selection of shops and restaurants and a couple of supermarkets. We have eaten at La Scala Italian, Legends Chinese restaurant and the Harput Turkish place and would recommend them all. In addition we've had coffee and cakes and lunches at several other cafes (Bagel Alley, Broeders etc.) and found them all to be lovely. Wassenaar is quite an upmarket town with just a handful of exclusive shops. If you go out a bit further to Den Haag or Leiden you can have a shopping day in the bigger stores with familiar names such as H&M, Footlocker, etc. The Saturday market in Leiden is fantastic to browse around. The cafes along the canals are great to sit outside and watch the world go by. We took two 13 year old girls and they spent all their days on the funfair and their evenings in the pool. They made friends with a group of Dutch and German boys so we hardly saw them at all. If I was to complain about anything it would be the cleaning arrangements in the shower blocks. The gents is cleaned from about 10am, during which time men are directed to use the ladies block for toilets and showers then an hour later the ladies are cleaned and only the gents can be used. It may not bother other people but I don't like to have a man in the next cubicle when I'm showering.
