We used this site twice this summer as a stopover on our way down south and also on the way back for 2 nights as we visited La Coupole the WW2 Bunker Museum. We were warmly greeted at reception after a little problem of finding it as our sat nav sent us to a very narrow road in the village. However local people were very helpful and we soon found the site. Having been told to select our own pitch we found one very near to the toilet/washing facilities. The site was on level grass and electric was available very near and water across the tarmac road way. The bread man visits the site each day in his white van and has his own spot across from reception at 8 30 nd 9 30 each morning although we found on our second visit he did drive around the site sounding his horn. On the second visit we chose a different site but slightly larger and whilst the weather was ok for us there was a fair bit of mud on the plot. At reception we found English was spoken and they were very friendly and helpful. In late September the Play areas for children were empty but I would think that these and the on site pool in the main summer period became very busy. Very well run site with plenty of super markets etc within local driving distance. We shall certainly come again if we visit eastern France again.

As many others have, used this site as an overnight stop going South and returning North, extremely handy as very close to the A1. Booking in at reception is straight forward and as we were early we were advised to pitch where we liked. The site is nice and tidy and lots of facilities for its size including swimming pools, games room, children's play areas, Bar and Restaurant even a Pets Corner! We found the toilets etc to be clean and tidy and had no complaints whatsoever.

The Bar and Restaurant are a nice size and were busy whilst we were there, there is a good selection of food also but we canít comment as we didnít eat at the Restaurant although plenty were using it.

All in all a great little site that we would recommend as an overnight halt or a longer break, a little bit exposed as at the top of a small hillock but the views are pretty good to compensate.

Although a small site, the site is a perfect stop over on the way somewhere else.

The guys make you feel very welcome (We used in on our way down south and on the way back up). They remembered us and let us just carry on.

In the wet the site does get muddy - but then again we are caravaning so getting muddy is part of the fun (Isn't it ??)

A perfectly quiet site, not really much to do, the fishing is a bit sad, not even a bite (Not sure if the fish are in there ?). The pool according the to the kids is great

Overall exactly what we needed both times and always a warm welcome !

Our third time for using this quaint little site. Friendly atmosphere being owner managed. Grass pitches can be muddy particularly with so much traffic from one-nighters, but pleasantly set out. The pitch we chose for our two-night stay gave us good views over the rural landscape. Toilet/showers are unisex and dated, but very clean. We have never used the restaurant though it is probably more used by the users of the statics and other seasonal pitches in a separate location. The free wifi was not very good. Having done the Belgian WW1sites on a previous stay, this time we drove to Thiepval to see the memorial which remembers the 77, 000 missing on the Somme - very moving. Will definitely consider using the site again since you can be in Calais in just over an hour.

Reasonable enough location with level pitches, although nothing stands out as exceptional and the site was overpriced for what was on offer and incidentally, this was the only campsite we visited where we needed to bring our own loo paper. Showers were best described as average. Garbage was managed by having an area set aside for a number of overfull bins opposite the site reception building. No shops in the immediate vicinity although the bread van made a stop on site each morning apparently.

Myself and a couple of friends stayed here for the first night of our motorcycle tour in Europe and the fee for each man, tent and motorcycle was Ä17, which by comparison with the other 12 or so sites we stayed at whilst touring, was expensive. The average we found to be during our tour was Ä9 and we saw pricing for man, tent and motorcycle ranging from Ä23 to Ä6.

If it hadn't been for the foul weather and the fact we had been delayed in crossing due to problems the previous day in the Eurotunnel,

This campsite has some definite positives, but also quite a few negative points.

On the plus side, it has wonderful views, the pitches are grassy, level and easy to pitch onto, and the staff are welcoming. Arras was a lovely town to visit and we also went to the WWI site at Vimy Ridge which is well worth a visit.

There was a pleasant outdoor swimming pool, and also two playgrounds and numerous table tennis tables.

On the more negative side, the whole site had an air of being run down and in poor repair. One playground was right next to the animals which smelt dreadful - I know chickens and pigs don't have the best aroma, but they smelled as if they hadn't been cleaned out in quite some time. There was one toilet roll for the whole block and it frequently ran out - there were more toilets but they were a long way from the touring pitches. There was also no soap the whole time we were there.

Further more, I had been given a price by email that seemed to match with their website - however on arrival I was told that it was wrong and asked to pay half as much again if I wanted to stay, which made it a very expensive campsite indeed for what it had to offer.

Many people use this site as an overnight stop before Calais, and it is adequate for this or a short break, but I would really not want to stay here as a holiday destination.
