Reviewer: Adam-nottingham 1 review from this member

We booked a pitch at short notice as we were heading to Normandy for the World Equestrian Games and our other accommodation was found to be unsuitable.

When we arrived we found the pitch to be extremely spacious (much more so than a lot of the UK campsites) and either side of the pitch had a hedge for additional privacy. There was an extremely warm greeting for us after we had set up and made our way to the bar/restaurant and we also spotted board games and books to entertain people when the weather was not looking too good!

Throughout the week nothing seemed to be too much trouble for Peter or Sarah and they were extremely happy to help in whatever way they could (Peter stopped the rain within 24 hours of us requesting it). There is free wireless internet available in the bar/restaurant area for those that cannot tear themselves away from modern technology.

The shower and toilet block is basic but clean and has all of the essentials that you would need for a comfortable stay, they also have a washing machine available for rent.

One of our party was due to go camping a short time after our return to the UK but was paying the same price for 2 nights that we paid for 6 nights at this campsite, she thought that it was too cheap here and that there must be a 'catch', this definitely wasn't the case.

We have only stayed here once (6 nights in total) but I really could not recommend this campsite enough, if you want to experience a comfortable and relaxing environment at a very reasonable price then look no further.

Spent time at this site on the way down south and again on the way home and are so glad we chose to return to see what the new owners have achieved. The owners have done an amazing job in making this site a haven of peace and tranquillity. Now the site has a new shower block, which also includes washing up area - all very clean and tidy. The pitches are large and well mown with beautiful views of the large fishing lake. The owners make every camper feel so special and a couple of times a week the owner offers delicious food, served in their pleasant, relaxed bar/restaurant enabling you to meet and chat with other campers if you wish. We really didn't want to leave this site and cannot wait to return very, very soon.

The site is very well organised with good clean sanitary facilities. There is an area where you can buy drinks on site and a big building with sofas which you can go into and use the wifi. There was no 'plat du jour' on this week as the owners were catering each night for a large group.

It is a very pretty site with beautiful grass and a lake for people to catch fish in. You do feel a bit odd taking up a lakeside pitch if you don't fish though!

The site owners were very helpful and friendly on our arrival and during our stay.

However It just wasn't for us. And to be fair non of our reasons are the site owners fault but to give a balanced review to help others these are our thoughts:

It just seemed remote, If there had been a village within walking distance or at least a couple of kilometres cycle ride which had it's own shop or bar, then that would have made a difference. We drove to the nearest town Remalard which didn't seem to be that interesting, and there is an intermarche not too far away. We didn't stay long enough to see if the area had more to offer but it did appear as if you would have long drives to reach anything.

Everyone stopping seemed to be British - and we prefer a mix of nationalities.

It was peaceful and very green - if you like fishing and are happy to be surrounded by British people during your stay, then this could be site for you.

Travelled here from Norwich with my two mates on motorcycles, booked the site on the fly based on reviews and must say we were very impressed. Welcomed by Peter who generously lent us his barbecue without which we would have starved! (Not really!)

Cannot fault the site at all, very clean and tidy with a lovely atmosphere of calm and superb cooking from the owner. We stayed for nine nights and we wished it could have lasted longer and we certainly would recommend this site to our friends for either a stop-over or for longer. Great value, can't wait to return.

A big thank you to the owners for our very first overseas camping holiday and we couldn't have wished for a nicer site. The pitch over looking the lake was fantastic.

The showers and toilet block were always clean.

I would gladly recommend this site to anyone looking for a peaceful and picturesque haven.

We'll be back

This lovely site should be kept a secret between the lucky ones who have found it. We arrived on a wet Sunday to find a fairly water logged pitch (chosen by us) After some efforts to get the caravans onto the chosen pitches, we decided to leave things as they were and go for a well earned meal in the restaurant(excellent food thank you Sarah) The following day, still damp the owner (Peter) offered us a choice of different locations around the site which may be somewhat less damp. Spots chosen, Peter promptly mounted his favourite toy (sorry Tractor) and moved us to the new location, getting a touch damp in the process. All was well for a few days until we heard the news that our granddaughter had been rushed to hospital in the UK. Explaining the situation to Peter and Sarah it was decided that we would return home without the caravan. Sarah arranged for our dog to attend the local vet, 10 minutes later job done. Peter offered to store our van if we could not get back to the site to continue our holiday, Thankfully granddaughter is on the mend and after traveling almost 1000 miles in 3 days granddad is also recovering. The site has all the facilities you could want clean and well maintained. The restaurant is excellent and the owners are without doubt the most caring customer conscious We have ever come across. If you want a lovely site in a lovely area of France with helpful caring owners you cannot go far wrong with Forest view. If you want swimming pools and discos and noise don, t bother. WE WILL RETURN
