Don't follow sat nav but use directions given by site. It is near a very large IKEA. Very well placed site for accessing Delft city and public transport. Lovely town with lots of very quaint, pretty canals. Town centre is an easy, flat 15 minutes walk but be careful of all the cyclists, they have priority. Lots of cafés in the centre, interesting little market on a Thursday.

Good cycle rides both long and short as the site is on the edge of a nature park. Nice ride to t'woudt which is a tiny village with a church, café/pub and a few houses. It is about 10km but easy. The site staff will give you the route, not very easy to follow but manageable.

Easy getting to Keukenhof gardens, you walk to the train station, get a day return to Leiden, about 9. 8 euros. At Leiden go to visit centre outside the station and purchase a combi bus and gardens ticket.

Camp site is fine, it has all the facilities but can get a little crowded. There is not a lot of space between units. Best area is the field adjacent to the pay area, to the right.

No TV signal via aerial, you will need satellite.

Showers and toilets are clean and functional.

You must follow the signs to the campsite and not the sat nav as it will try and take you into a non-vehicle residential zone and you may get a penalty! The reception was welcoming and spoke excellent English. They gave us loads of information about the campsite and Delf and the adjoining shop was well stocked and had an in store bakery. We opted for a serviced pitch and were put in a grassed area surrounded by hedges which accommodated five units. There were a few statics further down. There were only a couple of minor issues for me, the lack of bins around what was quite a big site (the only ones we found were by reception as you exited the site and these were full and overflowing on one occasion), and nowhere to let my dogs toilet on site, apart from taking them off site and on a couple of occasions they unfortunately didn't make it off site before they went, which is a shame but unavoidable.

Delf is about a ten min walk and is the size of a large town, but has loads of shops and some older buildings too and is definitely worth a look. There is an open air market every Thursday. There is a vet within walking distance near the train station where we got their pet passports done. Wifi was free and available all over the site. Cost for one night, serviced, with 2 dogs was €44. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for 12 nights at the end of august but despite the heavy rain we still found plenty to do both on and off site. Delft is a 10 minute walk away to the picturesque city centre where you can also catch a tram to The Hague. Duinrell theme park and waterpark is a 20 minute drive away great for a day out if you have kids. A 30 minute drive away is Amsterdam head for the RAI park and ride where a tram will take you right to Central Station and only €5 for four tram tickets and upto 24 hrs parking. Just 10 minutes away is Diergaarde Blijdorp ( Rotterdam Zoo ) another good day out. Friendly and helpful staff at the campsite with a well stocked shop, very clean toilets, hot showers, heated swimming pool, big children's playground and big pitches. An all round great site handy for exploring Holland.

This was the second site we stayed at during our two week trip to the Netherlands. After reading all the fantastic reviews our expectations were very high. Unfortunately we left rather underwhelmed.

On arrival the staff were very friendly and spoke perfect English. However the access road to our pitch was quite narrow (and not one-way) so we got caught up in a bit of a traffic jam of people leaving the site and new arrivals. Our biggest disappointment was the state of the “special” pitch. It was an irregular shaped mix of grit/sand/mud and weeds. The bushes were very overgrown and really needed cutting back. The front part of our caravan was parked under a tree. Forty eight hours and about 20 “blobs” of bird poo later we had to move the van and spend about 30 minutes cleaning up the front of the van, hitch cover and aquaroll. Thankfully we hadn’t put the awning up.

The toilet block was excellent. Plenty of showers very clean. The on-site shop was useful with fresh bread baked daily. Bike hire available too. Did not use the restaurant as it seemed quite pricey.

We found the whole site a little run down. Really looked as if it needs a refurbishment. We also noticed that on some of regular pitches the caravans were VERY close together.

Word about the wifi – advertised as site wide. The weekend we arrived it worked perfectly in our caravan. Then from Monday to Thursday it was woeful. Lo and behold on Friday and Saturday it worked perfectly again. Very odd.

The surrounding area was quite nice. We rode our bikes into Delft which is a charming Dutch town. Also rode round the local park. It was OK but did not seem anything special to us. It may look a lot better when the sun is out. Nice big IKEA five minutes walk away.

I would class this as an “OK” site but at just short of thirty pounds a night for two people out of high season this site is very expensive.

What an excellent site, surely the best we have ever been on. We missed the yellow diversion signs on the motorway slip road, but found it eventually. The site is located on the outskirts of the charming town of Delft, a 3 minute bike ride or 10 minute walk. Adjacent is a 'country park', with lots of cycle paths, lake with beach, paddle-boat hire and a hidden gem of a restaurant that does lovely omelettes.

We did not use the sites bar or restaurant but it looked nice. Toilet and shower block very clean and no queues.

The site is great for kids with lots of activities, a good playground and pool. The site atmosphere is very relaxed and quiet.

Lots of English visitors and it was great to talk to them.

Delft is beautiful, we enjoyed the free Music Festival in the main square and found numerous 'PUBS'. Unfortunately we had to leave on the day of the Canal Boat Parade, but will return for it next year.

A big IKEA is 2 minutes from the site.

A lovely beach is at Schievningen, 30 minutes drive.

Can't wait to book for two weeks next year.

Just back after a fortnight in Delftse Hout and have to say we enjoyed it tremendously. We were on pitch 73 which was ideal (what a shame we hadn't brought our super pitch hosepipe as that's what we had - even though we hadn't booked one). But yes, site was great. Daily hosing down/cleaning of toilet block took ages to dry, and never enough hand towel paper to last the next 24hours. But that's nit-picking! Sorry! But as a family with two teenagers, not much activities for them on site, BUT a FAB site for off site activities. Delft the town is minutes away, and SUCH a charming place! Then the bike routes surrounding. Wonderful! And so close to Amsterdam (yes - DO pre-book tickets to Anne Frank Huis online - massive queues), The Hague - hairy bike ride away! ;-) And we went to Antwerp for the day which was great! SatNav takes you wrong way so yes - go towards IKEA roundabout turn left for Samsung buildings and then right after really narrow bit of road! Hope this helps!
