Why stay here ...

Located close to the town of Saint-Quentin and pretty village of Seraucourt-le-Grand, this small, tranquil site is convenient for stopovers and short stays. Pitches are mainly level and grass, with some gravel options for motorhomes, and are laid out around the fishing ponds, which are unfenced and kept stocked. A relaxing site with limited amenities for children, the English-speaking staff are welcoming and work hard to provide a peaceful, friendly environment for guests.

The flat countryside makes it ideal for walking and cycling, and visitors can enjoy a wander through the streets of Saint-Quentin, with its Gothic, Neo-Classical and Art Deco buildings. There are also First World War cemeteries and battlefields to be explored nearby.

A cracking touring site

This was our third visit , usually the night before the tunnel, this time the first night of our hols. A clean site with hedges around the main site, we were overlooking the lake, lovely. The War Cemetery is just a ten minute walk from the site. Another ten min walk in the other direction is a nice little bar that overlooks fishing lakes.

What a touring site should be?

We stayed here at the start and end of a campervan trip around France, in June 2019. And....we loved it. It has a good range of reasonably sized pitches with 'privacy hedging' to most, and some of the cleanest/best toilet and shower facilities we've so far encountered. It's a pretty village with a useful shop and nearby bar, plus the on site cafe did a mean roast chicken and chips one night - at good value. The local war cemetary is a moving place - and surely can't do other than make all ponder the folly of nations pulling apart, rather than co-operating together? The nearby canal provides a good cycle ride into St Quentin. But perhaps the star attraction here is the lady who runs the site, Alexandra, who particularly helped us (nervous first time dog abroad travellers) arrange a vet for the trip home worm pills and pet passport stamp - booking an appointment for us, in advance, with easy campervan parking outside. Unless the vet had come to us, it could hardly have been easier! Will definitely use site again.

Well Recommended.

On the 3rd April 2019 our first location on our first trip across the Channel in our Camper Car (correct title for overseas eh!). Made very welcome on arrival. Very helpful in allowing us to change pitch from grass to hard standing. It was early in the season and the site was not busy. The site is compact and family run, probably 50 pitches maximum. Noticed a few pitches were permanently occupied by caravans from the UK. From a new persons viewpoint a good sign people keep coming back. Facilities were very clean and well kept. Easy walk into the village where there is a small shop. You can get basic grocery supplies and some frozen foods here (wonderful baguettes). Supermarkets in a couple of locations are not far away if you want more and are easily accessible (our camper car is 7.5m). A great experience. Well recommended and a thank you to our hosts.

Lovely stay, thank you!

We really enjoyed our stay here! It was the first time for us with the caravan abroad and we felt reassured with the gate system, which was locked at night with pedestrian access only. The pitches were a good size and it was very peaceful. The pitches around the lake had their own private fishing jetty, beautiful! If you want to fish though, bring your own bits and bobs. The owner was so polite and helpful, excellent service! The showers could be adjusted temperature-wise and were huge! Really great if you have little ones as bags of space. The toilet facilities were very clean and had been recently updated. There is a little corner shop nearby but we used the supermarket in Vouziers. We were mainly visiting WW1 sites, which meant a 40 minute drive through Peronne and over to near Albert for the majority of them. Great base for this! Thank you for a peaceful and relaxing stay!

Great site - fishing or not

We stayed here for 4 nights on the first leg of a month long tour of France, Germany and Switzerland. What a gem. The owners are so helpful and friendly. We had problems with our electric and between Red Pennant and the site owner it was resolved - our kettle was faulty and kept blowing the fuse. The bar and small cafe area was a great place to get together with other campers in the evening, it’s was a really friendly atmosphere. The lake and surrounding countryside is great for walking and cycling and it’s flat! We do fish but had no gear with us, so will be returning for a longer stay soon. I know lots use it as a one night on the route out or home but it really is worth a longer stay
