A very pleasant and attractive looking site within easy reach of Calais. Very good for a rest after a long trip before returning to Britain. Not very close to shops if you have no alternative transport. They have a small shop, where you can order fresh croissants for morning, but not a great selection otherwise. Takeaway open in the evening, which we didn't try because we had supplies, and a restaurant, which was too expensive to try. Hookups are provided, and water is near the pitches. Elsan points are a bit further, but good and clean. Toilet blocks ok, but showers have no door to the outside, so no protection from insects. Staff very polite and helpful, but no-one around in the evening to enforce quiet, which was a bit of a problem. There's a small dog walk area near the gate, but not much offsite for a proper walk. All in all a great stopover, but for us, with a motorhome and large dogs, not where we'd want to be for a week.

Very well set up site (Castels & Camping chain) in nice surroundings and convenient for the tunnel.

Good points:

Some large pitches with hookup, water & drain

Nice bar & restaurant

Good facilities for children

Easy to find & very handy for the tunnel

Good English spoken

Good value with an ACSI card

Less good:

Wifi (charge) is limited to 300MB a day & we exceeded this by simply downloading 2 newspapers - no one told us it cuts you off if you exceed it. We paid for 2 days, had 12 hours & were not offered a refund.

Toilets and shower blocks (bar the heated one) looking tired & need some upgrading.

Showers very wet and difficult to clean due to lack of mats at door and floor mops.

Stayed here twice in one week. Firstly after arriving in France via the Tunnel. A quick 20 min journey and we arrived. A welcoming greeting and as our first visit an explanation of what was where on site. Our pitch was slightly sloping between the reception and bar/food area. Ground slightly boggy but after all the rain the day before this was to be expected.

On arrival 6 days later we were escorted to a pitch on the far right of the site. A wonderful spot. The pitch was sop big I was convinced I had taken up 2 spaces!. Water and electric close by. Showers hot and clean on all my visits. I will definitely use again as a starting point for my European adventures

We stayed at this site as our last overnight stop before catching a ferry from Calais on the Sunday. We chose the site based upon the reviews on this website.

Our welcome at the reception was what I would call 'efficient friendliness' and with admin and payment sorted we were escorted to our pitch by the chap in a golf buggy.

This is certainly a lovely site set in the grounds of a wonderful moated manor house. The landscaping of the site is superb with lovely trees, shrubbery and 'sculpted' bushes together with a very nice pond.

Our pitch was very large but then again, at 25ft, so is our motorhome so we have not experienced any small pitches on our travels. We were on 'fairly' level grass and had electric hook up close by hidden from view in the shrubbery - a nice touch.

This site really does have everything you would expect of a Castels chain member ; bar/snacks, take away food, nice restaurant, swimming pool. However, as we were only on an overnight stay we did not use any of these facilities and cannot therefore comment on them.

The sanitary block close to our pitch had UK style WC's, wash basins in cubicles and showers. All very nice at first site BUT. It had rained prior to our stay and the floor was a terrible state. This was not helped by the lack of a proper entrance mat - a mat resembling a towel was on the floor and it was totally inadequate for the task. It was also not helped by there being only one rake style mop - even municipal sites we have stayed at on this trip had several of these per sanitary block. The shower cubicles were lacking in clothes hooks - only one hook for everything ; a very poor design.

The site is located about 15 minutes walk from small town of Guines and with it's historical associations with Henry VIII and it's interesting independent shops etc. It's worth the walk. There is a Le Clerc supermarket on the edge of Guines - useful for some shopping and fuel.

Overnight on the way into France. Very well appointed site. Efficient welcome, taken straight to large pitch, close to toilet block, that was clean and tidy. Busy site, good facilities for the kids, nice bar. Free WiFi in the bar but not working when we were there. Other campers told us that was not unusual!

Quiet at night, easy to find and get to and from ferry.

Lots of variety of units, some fixed.

We stayed in a pre-erected Eurocamp tent one night on both our out bound and return journey from France. It was easy to find and was a welcome stop over to break up our journey. The surrounding area is very pretty.

The site is immaculate although I felt pitches were quite compact compared to other sites we’ve stayed on in France. We had a tent pitched on the grass straight in front of the first tent we stopped in, which gave no privacy to either family. Toilet blocks were very clean and tidy, although hand wash had run out in the dispensers. Showers were nice and hot.

Our children found the pool too cold and only managed 20 minutes in there. They played table tennis and had a go at the crazy golf which was 2 euros. WIFI connection was good, 4 Euro for 3 hours. We used the takeaway and found portion sizes on the small side although the food was nice.

The site went quiet by 10pm so we settled down to get a good night’s sleep, but were disturbed both nights by late arrivals and early departures. Vehicles were moving past our tent up until 11pm and started again by 6am.

I haven’t used Eurocamp before and have been put off using them again. The blue mattress protectors were dirty with large dubious white stains on them. I had to sweep sand off the mattresses with a sweeping brush before I could make the beds. The blankets provided were nowhere near warm enough and we all woke up freezing in the early hours on the first stay, so we used our own duvets and pillows on the return stop. Their pillows smelt a bit. One of the tents we stayed in was thick with bird droppings on the outside, had mildew and dirt on the inside of the canvas and a slashed window. The BBQ legs collapsed as we were cooking on it!
