Reviewer: JacquiR 6 reviews from this member

We visited for our holiday in August as a family with two young children. We chose the site as we didn't want to travel too far from the ferry port and it looked to be good for young families.

Location: The site is about 45 minutes drive from the Europoort ferry terminal at Rotterdam. It's right on the edge of Delft and you can walk into town in about 15 minutes or to the station in 20. On a bike it's about 5 minutes away. The campsite is part of the wider Delftse Hout recreation area which includes a forest park with cycling trails, a lake with a beach area for playing and paddling, a city farm and water play area and a couple of cafes.

Facilities: The shop is extremely well stocked for a campsite shop (it's like a small corner shop) with fruit, meat, fresh bread and pastries, milk, beer, wine, biscuits, camping accessories, toiletries etc. The washblocks were well equipped with separate showers, toilets and sinks in cubicles. There were family sized shower rooms where you could shower together with children. There was also the best washroom for small children I have seen, with a baby bath, changing mat, toilet cubicles with low toilets for small children and separate showers for young children to use with help. Although it was August and the site was full we never queued (except once for the baby bath). There are covered washing up sinks and a freezer for freezing ice blocks. There is a large laundry room with sinks for handwashing, a machine to spin your clothes if you've handwashed as well as washing machines, tumble driers and ironing facilities. All of the pitches had electric hook up. There is an on site restaurant and snack bar which was open 5/6 nights a week and on the nights it was closed there was a visiting takeaway van (the pizzas were excellent). We did feel that the service in the restaurant the night we ate there was a bit slow. You could hire good bikes on site for what we thought was a very reasonable rate and they also had child seats.

Value for money: We paid 30 Euros a night for the four of us including EHU and we felt that this was good value considering all of the facilities that were provided and the location.

Customer service: The staff in reception and the shop were very helpful including via email before we went. They were very accommodating as we were arriving early and leaving late because of only travelling a short distance from the ferry terminal.

Child friendliness: This is a great site for children. There is a really good playground and a small swimming pool with separate paddling pool. The swimming pool isn't that warm but not unpleasantly cold. There is also a kids club with some activities but this is fairly low key. My little boy did a bit of drawing one morning and enjoyed the singing and dancing one evening. The activities take place in a separate room near the washblocks.

Overall: We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider going back. The pitches aren't particularly spacious but we thought this was not unreasonable given the city location.

Excursions: We took a tram directly from Delft through Den Haag to the beach at Scheveningen which was good. We also visited Madurodam which we all enjoyed. We would recommend the Stads Koffyhuis in Delft where we stopped for lovely hot chocolate/ beer/ pancakes/ snacks.

Really loved this site. Spent three nights here. Excellent location for easy cycle or walk into Delft - lovely place. The country park next door is vast with miles and miles of cycling and walking. Little city farm too which was free. Facilities at campsite very good. Always clean and always open! Restaurant on site but we didn't use it just the bar. Live music one night which was good. Unheated pool. Small shop but sold what we needed. Fresh bread etc daily. Reception didn't seem to stick to arrival and dept times. Pitches quite small but more than adequate. Definitely recommend and I loved Delft too!

This site is great if you like to enjoy your holiday rather than grumbling about kerb positionings however beware of speeding children on go-karts! :D Site facilities are clean and it has a small shop that sells fresh bread and croissants. There is a pool on site so that the kids can have a bit of fun inbetween being dragged around Delft and Rotterdam. Delft itself is lovely and there is a great market in the square on a saturday. Just remember to watch out for nutters on bikes who'd rather run you down then slow down :D The day we left it hammered it down so we packed up and used the Ikea around the corner for a 1 euro breakfast to dry out before heading to Germany :D

We've just returned from Europe having stayed in 5 sites over 2 weeks and this was our least favourite. On the plus side, it's well situated for Delft, the reception staff are helpful and there is free wifi. Our motorhome is 6m and we had no problems navigating around the site but be aware some of the alleys are dead ends and some of the turn points would be quite tight. The pitches were quite small. The motorhome service point was poor in that it was difficult to access the waste water drain because it was located too close to a kerb. So, in summary, convenient for Delft but small pitches and tight navigation in places. Overall, the site seemed slightly old-fashioned. It cost us 65E for 2 nights as we paid a small surcharge to book a specific pitch in advance.

Visited the site in late April, and it was very crowded, with visitors and Caravan Club and Camping and Caravan Club rallies. Restaurant very good, and site personnel very helpful. Watch out if using sat-nav as it will take you under the motorway and tunnel is very low, maybe no clearance for caravan. (Leave motorway at Ikea and pass close to the front of Ikea, before travelling down service road, parallel to motorway) Pool closed, but it was cold. Easy bike ride into Delft. Shop good with fresh bread in morning.

We are here at the present time and find the site to be very good.

We have a large pitch 109 which easily fits our caravan, awning and car with enough space to sit out front as well.

Showers are clean and piping hot.

Bar and restaurant look ok, bar only open until 10pm.

To say its Easter the site is fullish but still quiet.

We had issues with directions and our satnav took us over the road trap! You need to watch out for the brown Delftsehout signs as soon as you come off the motorway. You need to be virtually on Ikeas doorstep before you turn left and follow the road right in front of the Samsung and Fox IT buildings.

We have enjoyed it here, visiting Keukenhof gardens, Gouda, Den Haag and several visits into Delft in our 4 days here.
