Just come back from a very pleasant week here. We found this camp to be tip top. Toilets/showers were spotless whenever we used them, very good sized pitches (we had a comfort pitch with sea view)shop on site was ok but you had to order your bread the day before but this was due to the time of season. Maybe the one draw back about this site is you have to drive to the nearest supermarket. Some lovely villages in and around the area and the d day landing beaches are also in reach. We will be going back to this site again. Please also remember that all the shops are closed on sundays.

So this was our first camping holiday. Family of 5 with 3 young children in a Vango Midas 800.

LOCATION: around 10 minute drive from Cherbourg ferry port, easy drive with our sat nav but would also be easy with basic instructions or a map as there aren't many turns to get to it.

Tourlaville is just past Cherbourg, so around a 15 minute drive from the campsite. There you will find places to eat (a lovely Chinese restaurant, steakhouse and I'm sure more), garages, some shops such as intersport, and supermarkets (Leclerc, aldi. ) and the motorway to get you to places such as Mont St Michel and the landing beaches.

The campsite is opposite the beach which can be accessed over a foot bridge so no need to cross the fast road. The beach is lovely, wet sand as the tide comes right in but that's ok, clear waters too.

The whole area is cliffs and very pretty. The campsite appears to have been built into a cliff-so probably only good for those good at walking up steep hills.

CHECK IN quick, simple, 5 euro deposit per swimming band, map given for camping pitch.

PITCHES ours was the ideal size for us, there were also bigger and smaller pitches about. We had electric hook up.

TOILETS/SHOWERS all unisex, music played into them. Always clean and most of the day someone there cleaning them.

WASHING UP view over the pools and beach-beautiful!

POOLS- although heated, still cold. 1 indoor with small marked off toddler slide in shallow area. 1 outdoor swimming pool. 1 outdoor toddler pool with toddler slide. 1 bigger slide going into a landing pool. Also a playhouse and sunbeds there

RESTAURANTS- 2 but we tried neither

CAMPSHOP- very very basic. Fresh bread and pastries each morning, we brought this and made sandwiches for lunch. Their goats cheese is gorgeous! stronger than what you get here in Tesco.

WIFI- 30minutes a day, not too bad connection. Can pay extra for longer.

There are kids clubs but we didn't try these, although fellow campers did and weren't required to sign their children in which is a bit worrying.

PLAY AREAS- one near our tent was ideal, swings and sandpit. Another near reception a bit bigger, . An indoor bouncy castle and an outdoor one-brilliant. Plus indoor games room.

I think that's it. We would stay here again if we knew the weather would be nice.

Although we only spent 2 nights here, it is a camp site I look forward to revisiting.

The staff were super friendly and the facilities were all clean and in good condition, we were on pitch 66 which is tucked away and quite private which we were asked of our preferences thispitch suited us perfectly

My main criticism which is unavoidable was zero mobile signal, also there is 30 minutes free internet but only found out is per day as we were leaving. But all in all a very good experience with carrefour being 15mins away in saint-pierre eglise. Did not visit the beach which is across the road but the water looked crystal clear. 100% recommend and will be revisiting

Just returned from a week at L'anse du brick. Booking was simple and the staff on reception were very friendly and helpful. A good mix of Dutch, German, French and English campers with tents, caravans and motor homes.

Plots were a good size, hedged for privacy. Take rock or sturdy pegs as ground very hard.

Toilet/Shower blocks immaculate (with piped music!)

Our 14 and 12 year old loved the games room with table tennis and pinball. There are bouncy castles and an outside play area for younger kids.

Swimming pools are clean with lots of sun loungers - weather was rather wet when we went so indoor pool invaluable.

Bar/Restaurant - we only used bar as pizzeria seemed a little expensive but staff friendly.

Beach just a short stroll away and would have been great if we had better weather but we did go rock pooling and swam on one day.

A fantastic site - well worth 5 stars - will go to another Castels site next time - maybe further south hoping for some sunshine!

We stayed here for 12 days at the beginning of July 2014.

The site is literally 15 minutes from Cherbourg port overlooking a small bay with a beach when the tide is out.

English is spoken by all the staff and they are very friendly and helpful. We weren't expecting it tobe so hot and the coolbox couldn't cope. We managed to rent a fridge at short notice even though it is supposed to be booked in advance.

The showers are push button but seem to be cleaned constantly. The toilets are also high standard. The shop is small but has fresh baguette and croissants every morning. Dish washing at the top block has an amazing view over the bay. Laundry was by token 4. 50 and irons are available at reception. The swimming pool complex kept my daughters happy but there isn't a lot for teenagers. The kids club seemed very active and there was live music in the pizzerie.

We ate out in the restaurant and the pizzeria and both were good. In fact, the maison rouge was excellent.

We took a sea view pitch and it was just the right size for our tent and car. The atmosphere of the site was very friendly, with mainly Dutch and German visitors. The only noise we encountered was a few instances of coastguard helicopters flying low at night but we couldn't hear any other airport noise. Quiet after 11 is the rule and this was kept to except after one world cup game which I could understand.

The nearest supermarket is in St Pierre Eglise, about 10 minutes away. There is also a decathlon and a massive Auchan hypermarket in La Glacerie, just off the motorway south.

I would highly recommend this site and will be going back.

Went here last July with 3 and 8 year old. We were very lucky with beautiful weather but the site was really lovely - pretty much next to a beach - beautiful views when washing up ! Great pools, nice small shop, takeaway food useful, kids club a few hours a day, just enough to occupy us for the week - but we wanted a quietish break for young family. Overall, well presented and maintained site - no complaints. Quite a few Dutch there. Good playgrounds and a Bouncy castle for our kids age group. I think teenagers may find it a little limited though. In summary, we had a fab time as it was quite a laid back site. Cherbourg (at the time we visited) though was really dirty - unsure if they'd just had some sort of festival but we didn't like it when we took the children there. Local supermarkets fine but fairly pricey - some smaller places with a bit more character in the other direction from the site but decided to venture to another Castel site further down past Cherbourg this time for a change of scene and as the children are a little older.
