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. chateau out-building 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.

Excellent Site close to Calais

We have just spent 10 nights on this excellent site - On arrival we were quickly checked in by friendly reception staff, our pitch was very spacious, slightly sloping and fairly close to the shower and toilets. The toilets and showers were always clean, with plenty of hot water - the push button showers were no problem plenty of water pressure gave a nice powerful shower. We bought bread and croissants most morning from the baker who visits every morning from 08:00 to 09:00, there is no shop onsite, but a Carrefour supermarket with fuel is a 2 minute drive away (Turn left out of main entrance and it is directly across the roundabout). We had 3 children in our party and they all had a great time making full use of the 2 swimming pools and the football pitch, they made some great friends. The site is well looked after, clean and tidy with very nice staff who are always on hand if needed. There was always plenty of activity with the comings and goings of the one nighters, but this never caused any issues for us. As others have mentioned this site is great for longer stays - it's a pity that so many simply pass through on their way South, or back to the ferry. Calais is an easy 25 minute drive, and there is plenty to do and see in the area. Did not use the restaurant, so can't comment - however some of our party used the takeaway and did not rate the food - apparently frozen supermarket Pizza's and chips. No real negatives to report - great well looked after site in a nice area

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 !!
