This was our second year at Forest View and we were just as pleased with our stay as we were last year. We met many previous visitors from last year as Sarah and Peter have built up a strong clientele of returning campers/caravanners which was lovely. The area is very pretty with lots of walks, we take our three dogs so it is ideal. Whilst we don't fish it was good fun to chat to the fishermen and enjoy their successes. The plat du jour meals are wonderful and not the normal restaurant experience as the emphasis is on attention to detail and the diners getting to know each other - hence booking is essential! We can't wait to return again!

The site isn't particularly child friendly but most families we've met have been passing down or up France and it is therefore ok for a short stay and they've cycled or walked with their children.

Just returned home from a wonderful first visit to Peter and Sarah's lovely campsite. Well I say campsite, but as they themselves would say, it was like being a guest in their garden and home. Our pitch (one of less than 30) was without doubt the most lovely I have ever camped on and I have been camping for over half a century! From our pitch we could see no other tents or caravans, just an idyllic view over the lake, trees and countryside.

Facilities (loos showers etc) were spotless and spacious.

Despite the rural location, a petrol station and supermarket are within about 5 mins drive.

Sarah cooks great Plats du Jours several times a week and everyone, including Sarah and Peter, sit together to eat. It means that you form lovely relationships with your fellow campers and consequently the atmosphere of the whole site is relaxed and friendly. Sarah's cooking is delicious - I am hoping to replicate her tiramisu roulade!

The forest is beautiful and has many great walks, many directly from the site, which appealed to us, (although we were disappointed not to see any deer or wild boar, but others had).

The number of campers who return to this site year after year is a testament to its owners who make a stay at Forest View something very special indeed.

We wished we were able to stay more than 3 nights but plan to return to this unique, welcoming and tranquil site next year.

Thank you Sarah and Peter for a lovely time.

What a hidden gem. Lovely lakeside peaceful site with spacious pitches and modern facilities. We only stayed 2 nights on our way back to Le Havre. The owners couldn't be more welcoming. We had a hard standing overlooking the lake that was obviously well stocked with fish as our neighbour caught a 32lb carp while we were there. He said they store their caravan at the site and have been staying for 6 years running. Peter and Sarah, the owners offer a set meal in the bar restaurant on some evenings and also produce the best homemade pizzas I have ever eaten. Dogs are now allowed in the lake and have to be on a lead on site, however there is an 8 acre field where they can be exercised. A new large supermarket is about 10 mins drive away. The site is set in lovely countryside with great views. Wished we had stayed longer and would certainly stay again

OMG, This is the best campsite we have ever been. The owners Peter and Sarah are made to run a campsite, so professional and friendly, nothing is to much trouble. The homemade pizza nights are a must as well as the 'Plat Du Jour' which is well priced and gets you to meet like minded individuals(should you be the outgoing type)we are and its highly recommended. The Plots are spacious and toilet/shower facilities are lovely and clean. I recommend the bike hire, the bikes are very good quality and Peter made sure we were equipped with map, pump, helmets etc. There's lovely forest walks ranging from 20 minutes to hours.

All in all a lovely place ran by a lovely couple.

This was our first visit to France and I know we will be back(With friends in tow).

We stayed at Forest View for 4 nights as we travelled further south, we returned for a further 3 nights, We found the site one of the best we have ever been to and the Facilities were clean and spacious. The Pitches are roomy and the standard of the site is spot on. The Hosts are a really lovely couple who cannot do enough for you. The Plat de Jour which is 3 nights a week is out standing with lots of friendly people and the other nights except for Sunday you can get Home cooked Pizzas and have a nice drink in the bar while you wait for the Pizza if you wish. Bread and Pastries can be ordered the night before and we found them to be very welcoming. All in all a very exceptional experience that leaves a lasting impression. Would recommend this site to any body.

A gem of a campsite.

What a perfect week (May 2017) camping in this wonderful rural location. The site was excellent; set in a peaceful, beautiful location with good facilities…just perfect. Spent the week relaxing, walking in the adjacent forest and fields, visiting the local manor house and hiring bikes (from the campsite) to explore the nearby traffic free greenway cycle-path (disused railway) adjacent to the Huisne River. Local markets and quaint villages complimented our stay. The campsite owners (Peter & Sarah) are a wonderfully friendly couple, who were exemplary hosts throughout our stay. We arrived as strangers and left as friends and we were grateful for their kind hospitality. The plat du jour evening meal, to which everyone staying was invited and was held in their farmhouse, was a great evening of local culinary excellence (cooked by Sarah) and good banter as everyone got to know each other and shared stories. One week wasn’t long enough. We’ll be back.
