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.

Nice place not only for a stop over

Very nice impression entering the site. We announce our stay via email. Nice pitches, clean toilet facilities. We agree on the ratings of the other guests. Recommendable.

Must Stay Longer

Lovely site spotless facilities, good restaurant bar and takeaway, lots of shade and good wooded walks for the dog, good easily accesible motorhome service point, all in all hard to fault. This is the second or third time in using the site mainly to and from the Eurotunnel, and really do need to spend a few days here and explore the area more.

July 2018 - 4 night stay

Very friendly welcome when we arrived after a long drive from the Alsace. Pitched in an area with other UK caravans. Pitches were well kept and water (shared between about 10 vans) was readily available. The toilet blocks were very clean although the toilets themselves could have been better lit. Bins in a central area but kept clean and they appeared to get emptied on a regular enough basis. Didn't use the pool but it looked clean and there was a play area for children adjacent with a bouncy castle. The play area was a in a separate area near the restaurant area and also had tennis courts, basketball etc? The restaurant was clean, had a decent choice and was reasonable value for money. There was a security guard who patrolled the site at night which was quite reassuring. Areas visited included Dunkirk which really could do better with the history it has. We also had a day up in Bruges, about an hour away and well worth the journey as it is a lovely old canalled city. On our return from Bruges we went via Ypres to visit the Menen Gate where there is a ceremony each evening at 8pm commerating those who died in the war, it was well worth the visit too. Another good couple of hours were spent at the Eperleques Blockhaus an old German bunker built to launch V1's and V2's during WW2. Its only about a mile from the site and easy to either cycle or walk. We were going to Zeebrugge for the Hull ferry and that was as easy alternative to Calais where most visitors to the site appeared to be heading. Would definitely recommend this site, its a good one !!

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.
