Hugely disappointing

We stopped over 1 night on the way down in early August and 2 nights in early September on the way back. Unfortunately it was hugely disappointing and not the sort of site we are used to booking through the Club. On the plus side the pitches are large and each has its own water tap, but they are rather sloping. Several of the pitches were occupied with what were generally quite old and seemingly permanent caravans. The facilities were functional and reasonably clean, but not well let on the darker September evenings. The bar and brasserie were across the road on the sister site and we had a pleasant drink and meal there on our August stopover, but the brasserie was understandably closed in low season. There was a slightly uncomfortable feeling on the site with young men in cars backwards and forwards past our caravan on a regular basis. The Club really should review whether this is the sort of site it wishes to offer members.

Not what it was

This time last year we had written a review stating their pitches were some of the best in France. This year..what on earth has happened. The Caravan Club need to look into this site. It was terrible. We booked as usual a large SP. We found none of the SP had water and only a few had power. All of these pitches are having gites put on them. The soil had been dug up to plant electric cables and services for the gites. We had a mechanical issue with our motorhome which meant we needed to use site facilities, not something we ever usually do. They were terrible. No lights functioning. Cold water only and not very clean at all. This was a great site to finish up at on the way hiome to the UK. Close to the vets at Abbeville for us. We will NEVER use this site again.

Sadly probably the poorest site ive been on in 30 years.this place needs a serious looking into by the club.It letting the club down

From the main road is about 1 mile of single track road.The entrance is thru a farmers yard and up a very steep stone trackway to the site.There is a hut which is over grown so you will probably miss the reception.So you given a site map and told of the area you can pitch up.So down another stoney track to the pitches.then its like a free for all in amongst the yurts teepee's and log cabins.95% of the pitches where occupied by what would seem long stayer/residential caravans and shed and trailers.So we found a vacant pitch.pull on with our moho.got out and the complete area was full of holes approx 1" round.after approx 10 min we had to move as the moho was sinking due to all the hole,Not sure what they were .maybe snakes or wasps,but we where told by the ,what seems a 1 man band receptionist they were from wood mice.they where literally everywhere.so we moved to another pitch that was better but was about knee deep in weeds and grass.(was told by the 1 and only staff member we could see,he said it was to preserve natural bio area) So we moved again ,as it was sinking again but after about 1 hour.after. so we went and asked the 1 man staff if you could have a hard standing.he allowed us but only after about 20 mins of a discusions.little did we know but on the other side of the fence was the childs play area.Great if you like the kids playing on squeeky swings and trampolines until 2am under torch light. second day we where glad to leave after a lady from another van came over and started shouting at us for not putting our rubbish in the correct area.LOL we hadnt put any rubbish out yet. No marking on the toilets for men or ladies.just another free for all. footpath too the toilets where mud and raised manhole ,so not recommended in the unlit site at night. We did how ever walk down the steep stone track to the SISTER site. Pool not open even in 35 degree and end of july. We walked around the site and not a blade of grass due to its full enclosed by tall forest trees. and the amound of children running around the static and log cabins. Out of our 3 days booked we left after the first night.Oh and it didnt feel safe as on the 1 and only night we stayed we had out table stolen from out the moho.only to find it further on the site in a longstayers awning.reported to reception but fell on deaf ears. Come on caravan club look at this site.upon arrival it has more leaflets out side for caravan and camping club and other organisations, this site is a disgrace to the club. May i add that of the area allowed for touring all the pitches are not level but on what could be described as a humbug shape.there are leveller pitches at the top of the site but British are not allowed.bit of a joking site that need attention Others have given a better review,but i dont want to stay on the sites they have stayed on,if they give this a good review CAMC .I have a load of picture if you want to see them

Best pitches in France

We stop at Le Clos Cacheleux on our way back to the UK. It is close by to Abbeville where we get our dog sorted for home plus close to St Valery for the best Moules in Northern France 🇫🇷. It's just less than an hour to the Eurotunnel. The SP pitches are massive, flat and always have lush grass. Totally beautiful and so well looked after. Lots to do in the area to either start or finish your holiday. Lots of power and water. Very clean. Fully recommended. Thank you to the staff once again at Le Clos Cacheleux.

What a lovely site.

This is a beautiful peaceful site with huge pitches. Suitable for couples as well as families. We loved the petting animals in the field next to the site, goats, sheep, donkeys and cows. It was lovely to see children feeding the animals and enjoying them. We stayed here overnight on our way to Normandy and were so impressed we booked to stay on the way back. We will definitely go again next year for a longer stay. We had beautiful freshly baked bread and croissants delivered to our caravan at 08.30 in the morning, fantastic. The site is a bio diversity site and very natural. The immediate surroundings are beautiful, the mature trees and undulating countryside. The pitch we had was huge and we were surrouinded by nature, green woodpeckers, squirrels and at night the sound of owls hunting. The staff were friendly and very helpful and the site is what it says on the tin. My wife and I loved and we can't recommend it highly enough.

Very poor site

On holiday with friends also members who had been to this site previously. The site access drive is very steep and gravelled and I would not like to meet anyone coming the other way. On arrival at the site the staff very not at all helpful and informed that part of the site area was not being used (toilet block not in use). We were directed to part of the site where the pitches were very sloping and full of quite deep holes. We with our friends had booked adjacent pitches. When we looked around the area that we had been directed to there were no adjacent pitches available. When our friends arrived they asked if they could go in the area that they had occupied on their previous stay and were told that it was closed. After they looked around and found that there were no good pitches available, went back to the office they were told reluctantly that they could pitch in the area that we had been told was closed. We moved from the area that we were setting up on and found that there were several pitches in the supposedly closed area available and settled on two adjacent pitches as we had booked. The pitch that we ended up with was of a reasonable size but the services connections were quite long runs. For our first morning we ordered bread and croissants which were delivered to our pitch. We ordered the same for the next day but they did not arrive. I walked down to the office to enquire but the receptionist was not interested and suggested that I could walk down to the adjacent site where I could get a baguette but no croissants. I got my money back. I didn't bother ordering any for the following day. The toilet block in the area where we were pitched had been de-commissioned for some time (taps and fittings removed). We were lucky that we had our own facilities as I think the other toilet block would struggle to serve all the pitches. The security barriers were not in use whilst we were there. The site appeared quite run down and not very well maintained. This is not a site that we will be visiting again.

Poor campsite

Really didn't like this site at all - unkempt farmyard entrance, huge pitches but very lumpy and overgrown. Very hard to find where the services were on each pitch. Signs up on several pitches saying that, for biodiversity reasons, the grass had been left to grow long but it gave us the distinct impression that it was to save on maintenance. Had a general feeling that he site wasn't cared for. Toilet/shower facilities (mixed) reeked of a stale/sour water odour. Birds were flying around the building rafters and as a result there were bird droppings over the floor - yuck. For once I showered in our motorhome! Definitely will not be back.

Excellent site for stopping over en route to Calais

We stayed for a couple of nights on our way to Calais after almost five weeks in France. The site exceeded our expectations. The fully serviced pitches were large enough for two caravans and were separated by hedging to provide privacy. There is an associated site within a short walking distance with additional facilities including a bar and swimming pool, but we didn't have time to visit this. The staff were more than helpful, especially as we arrived at 6.30 pm, just as the reception was due to close. We cannot comment on the toilet and shower facilities, however, as we use our own, but for us the site was perfect and we wished we had been able to stay longer to explore the area. Perhaps next time? :-)

First class as usual

We always stop here reroute home from our annual French tour. We have our dog checked out in abbeville. The guys at the site will arrange this for you. They have completed a lot of work here over the year. New large flat pitches as well as a new services block and sauner room. Full service pitches are very good. Always very quiet. Lots of grass. St valery a few minutes uses drive down the road. Thanks to all staff once again. First class guys.

Poor Caampsite

Just returned from a 7 night stay here,it was 7 But we moved back to Du Gandspete. First complaint NO hot water in showers for a day and a half. Shower toilet block no lighting at night. Disabled toilets locked for most of our stay but never any hot water at anytime. Visited the adjacent site which is part of the site. If you want a drink or snack after 8.30pm tough,it closes. No waste water points on the pitches we were on so we copied the other campers,ie:chucked it in the hedge. Must not forget the JCB tearing about the site doing work for the new spa. Stayed from the 11th to 15th June 2017. Called the club and they will look into it. Almost forgot long grass weeds,however there are signs saying we cut every 10 days,and our pitch was cut on our fourth day. Would we go back there? NO.

Campsite’s Reply:

I sorry to read the comments and would like to address your concerns. 

We passed our 4 stars in May 2017.

The showers are controled all at 9h every morning. If one dont work, my staff manage the problem.

We cut the grass every 10 days but some times when we work campers ask to not cut their pitch...

The snack is open as indicated on our website and in the notice from 18h to 20.30

For the Disabled toilets, we give the key at the reception when people ask for it because otherwise everybody use it.

We finish the spa in may because we open it at this time...  So the jcb ,as mentioned, is used to bring the trash and some works in the camping like cut the hedges in June.

Receive my apologies. 

Best regards

Camping Le Clos Cacheleux
