Why stay here ...

This excellent, family-oriented site is set next to a large lake and surrounded by a beautiful park, offering the perfect balance between relaxation and activity. Most pitches are grassy and of a good size, with natural shade being provided by large trees.

All of the English-speaking staff are very helpful, while the modern, clean facilities include a small, heated pool and adventure playground. Activities are organised in high season.  

Just a short walk away is the picturesque town of Delft, famous for its pottery and a good place for shopping. Tickets to the pottery factory can be arranged onsite, and walking and cycling tours are also organised from here in summer. Slightly further afield is The Hague, with its Palace Noordeinde and Royal Stables.

Lovely site in a great location

We have just returned from a week long stay at Delftse Hout. We had a lovely stay on the site, which was beautiful and well laid out. The only slight disappointed was that the communcal buildings are quite tired. However and new facilities block is going to be build during the 2019/20 Winter, which the plans look fantastic. We took a Comfort Pitch, which included electric, water and drainage and had plenty of space. The location of the site is excellent being only 35 minutes drive from Europoort Rotterdam. It is only a 1km walk into Central Delft, where the are plenty of places to see and eat, and a train/tram station offering links further afield. A must see is the Royal Delft Pottery. We also visited Den Haag, Amsterdam and Kinderdijk Windmills. If you are going to Den Haag, then a must see is the Escher Museum. Our kids loved it, especially when we went kayaking on the lake adjacent to the site. Great trip and we will be returning at some point in the future.

Disappointed

Stayed here Sept 2018 overall very disappointed, First, let us make this review very clear and would like to point out at no time will this review criticize any of the staff on reception who are brilliant! However, the site well that is another story. First, the pitch we had chosen was what they term here, as a “Comfort Pitch” however cannot see where the comfort starts and finishes in comparison to any other pitches on site. As to us, they are all the same! Unable to connect drainage pipes to drain as drains secured down so had to use waste hog! Hard standing well is it really. As all it turns out to be is, a section of fine sand & gravel which your caravan or motor home sits on just! However at the back of the van well this turns out to be a mixture of dead grass and mud which of course due to usage turns into mush so making connections and emptying anything on the offside of the caravan a little dirty on your shoes or trainers! In the UK we are somewhat spoilt for choice as we tend to stay on sites under the banner of “Tranquil Parks” Now these sites are really “Comfort Pitches” why not look them up for yourself! Back to this site review, these are nowhere near comfort pitches! not when the caravan next to you is a couple of feet away and considering our little enclave had 5 pitches on it all within feet of each other (What ever happened to any rules about spacing and Health & Safety don’t think the Dutch have caught onto that one yet) its more pack them in and space them closely! The question here of course is what if a fire broke out the caravans and motorhomes are far too close together! So forgive us for saying, how can these be “Comfort Pitches”? The only views you get is into the caravans or motorhomes next to you or over from you! The facilities, well let’s start by stating the obvious, and that is of course all of them are very well used daily by all onsite (which is quite a few in such a small space), a little dated you could say. For us men well first into the loo’s then out of them in to the basins cubicles and then out again into the shower cubicles all in different rooms of course! So be careful you do not catch cold. Another moan for the showers is their taps which constantly need you leaning against them to stop them going off every 30 seconds! Toilets! Well a word to the wise on this point, take your own loo roll as over the weekend, cleaning is not updated and therefore while we were there hand drying towels did not exist in the loo’s and there are no warm air dryers either, and also most had no loo paper in them! The site does have a decent restaurant, which serves reasonable food choices from 16.00 hours every day, and there is a great park next to the site with some great walks and cycle paths. As for staying here again, we think that would be a definite “NO”! Now when we next come across from Harwich to The Hook of Holland we shall just continue to drive right through Holland and out the other side!

Delightful Delft

Stayed for 3 nights in April, Super location on outskirts of Delft. Wasn't very busy when we stayed and rained the first day so popped into Ikea which is virtually next to the site! Walked into Delft the following day and excellent market with friendly stall holders willing to speak English. Lovely park and lake area next to site for walking around with dog. Took train to Amsterdam from Delft station which was straightforward.

Great site

We had a great time here. On arrival we were given a warm welcome. We were allocated a pitch and given a map of the site and told where all the amenities were. We had a barrier card if we wanted to use our car and for this you pay a €20 deposit which you get back when you leave. You can park by your outfit but if late back you have to park outside site. The pitch we were given was a corner pitch with full sun for most of the day which was nice. Some pitches are very tight. You can pitch your caravan any which way you like. The site facilities are ok cleaned daily there are washing up sinks and a laundry room with iron and ironing board tumble driers and washing machines. There is a restaurant and bar on site. There is a take away facility but not open very late and some evenings entertainment is provided . There is a kids club we had no use of this but a German family who we spoke to said it was one of the best they had used. There is a small swimming pool but full of children so noisy, ok if you want to cool down. You can hire bikes €9.50 day tip if you want to hire one get it the night before you want it as they are popular. We stayed for 3 weeks and used our car 4 times and that was for shopping. Public transport is great We used a combination of trams and trains. You can get the no 64 bus outside the site and it drops you outside the railway station and the tram stop to The Hague is over the road from the station. We travelled to Utrecht, Dordrecht,Liedan, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Madurodam by train and or tram Kinderdijk windmills is worth visiting car park there is €5. The city of Delft itself is lovely there is a market on a Thursday and Saturday selling fresh produce. Kibbeling is a must try . The staff at the site are all friendly and very eager to help give ideas of where to go you just need to ask. I would thoroughly recommend this site and would not hesitate to go back.

Welcoming and peaceful site

Although there are a lot of pitches, this is a clean and quiet site. Very well staffed so no long waits to being booked in or answering queries. An easy walking distance to both town centre and to lovely countryside. There is an arboretum (see entry) just across the road.
