Why stay here ...

This friendly site, set in the peaceful, wooded grounds of a 19th century château, is ideally located for a stopover at the beginning or end of a holiday, but also worth a longer stay. You'll be greeted warmly by the English-speaking staff at reception, and children will be kept entertained with a pool, games room and play area. A farmhouse houses the good restaurant and bar.

Dogs will enjoy walks through the woodland, and can be taken onto some beaches nearby (ask at reception). Many visitors overlook the area’s attractions, but the rugged Opal Coast is well worth exploring. The port town of Boulogne-sur-Mer has an array of ancient monuments that bear witness to its 2,000-year history, while Saint-Omer’s cathedral and public gardens are a delight to discover and Eperlecques’ Blockhaus, where early V1 bombs were launched on London, makes for a chilling but interesting trip.

Fabulous site

Stayed recently for 3 nights and it was practically the best site we stayed at (out of the 10 sites we used in northern France). Only surpassed by Camping Village de la Plage (on a fantastic beach & part of the Yelloh group of campsites). The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Lovely swimming pools. Very clean toilet/shower facilities (separate womens & mens - a rarity on our trip!). Julien on reception was exceptionally friendly, helpful and efficient. Speaks fluent English and helped us to book our dog into a local vet. Had already arranged for our large motorhome to go onto a hard standing pitch given all of the rain/storms recently experienced in France. Very good restaurant and takes dogs too. Going forwards, we will always use this site on our return from our overseas trips. Very civilised journey (about 20 miles) back to the shuttle.

Visited this site again - lovely as always

Stayed (by no means the first time) here for a 1 night stopover during the school summer holidays. Toilets and wash/shower facilities were as always clean and nice to use. Plenty of hot water, toilet paper provided (not a given in France), lovely grass pitch (some require levelling blocks), and most importantly very friendly English speaking staff in reception. Nice and quiet and a super place to stay. Supermarket with 24/7 fuel station a few mins drive down the road. I cannot think of anything I would like to change or improve in this site. We love it and will visit again for sure.

Always a pleasure

I have stopped here many times. I originally stopped at this site on the way back from Europe due to the location, however, I stop here now because of the great pitches, friendly check in, helpful staff, nice bar and good food. The washrooms and facilities are always well maintained and clean. Will probably book direct next time as I am not always exactly sure of arrival date and Caravan Club penalties apply if insufficient notice given.

Loved It!

Stayed here for 3 nights on our way back to the Euro tunnel and we were really pleased with it. Lovely and clean, grass cut, restaurant with lovely food nice swimming pool and table tennis. Great bouncy castle for the kids and train to climb on. Julian on reception couldn't have been more helpful even sent us details of the beaches dogs were allowed on. Great laundry and lovely woodland walks for the dog. You must visit the blockhaus which is a short drive from here it is unbelievable and eery. Would definitely stay again, most people are British on their way out or way home.

A pleasure to visit.

Even taking into account the cost of the Ferry from Dover to Dunkirk it is well worth the extra money. We have been camping and caravanning for many years and have yet to find a campsite it this country that comes anywhere near to the standard and facilities offered at Chateau du Gandspette. The fact that it limits the amount of dogs per pitch is an added bonus. Something we wish this county would do. The staff are lovely and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The Restaurant, bar, takeout, outside gym, huge children's area, 2 swimming pools etc. etc. are all a bonus. We go several times a year and it is always a pleasure
