Why stay here ...

This attractive site is usefully located as a stopover en route from and to the Channel ports, on the edge of a vast forest and within the Parc Naturel Regional Scarpe-Escaut.

On-site facilities include a swimming pool and a friendly bar/cafe, offering the opportunity to try some local specialities. Daily bread service is available in the summer time.

Nearby is the attractive spa town of Saint-Amand-les-Eaux, with a magnificent 82m baroque style tower housing an interesting museum. The Belgian border is close and a day trip to the city of Mons is worthwhile. Alternatively, the world-class museum of the Louvre at Lens can be reached in less than an hour’s drive.

Ok for Pit stop....

Le Mont des Bruyeres
Stopped here for one night at beginning and end of our trip to the French Alps. Great location, being an hour and half away from Calais but felt it was a bit overpriced for what it offers. The pitch itself was great- fully serviced, defined by shrubs. The toilet block nearest us was fairly old fashioned, toilet paper not in individual cubicles and soap not supplied. Unisex facilities which I'm not always keen on.... The small pool kept our 2 kids entertained for a while and there is a decent enough play park. Sadly, we were disappointed to arrive on a Monday on our return journey when the bar was not open for drinks or snacks.(every Monday) The opening hours are fairly limited on other days of the week being open until 10am - 12.30pm and 4- 8pm (9pm at the latest on weekends) On our initial visit food didn't seem available so I would advise not relying on the site for a meal. A glass of wine would have been welcome on our last night so this was a bit disappointing. There is a large marquee available to campers if the weather is inclement (contained tables and benches) and it appeared to have a fridge and freezer available for visitors to use. Overall, we've visited other stopover sites which were cheaper or gave more value for money and we would be more inclined to use these again next time .

First Night Stopover

Le Mont des Bruyeres
Stopped here on our first night heading towards Alsace and Switzerland. Nice distance from Calais for our slow motorhome. Pitch was good, with electricity and water. Had french style toilets and showers (unisex, open gents area, no toilet paper in cubicles) Bread delivery service to the van in the morning was a nice touch.
