Our 5th year on this site and it was just the same, perhaps even better this year as the weather was fantastic. Can't add much more to the previous reviews really. Food still great, super to eat meat and veg from the farm. Lovely to see Kay and the family again along with all campers who return year in year out. Fab.
The Komquat pizza restaurant in Rostrenen is still excellent. Kay will book it for you. It seems they now get very very busy.
Back for the 4th year in a row and just as good as ever. Thanks to Tony, Kay & family for making it another great holiday.
Very nice to see those who return each year. Children had a great time again.
We ate as much as possible from the farm this year and loved it, BBQ most of the time but also made a big lamb casserole and chicken casserole using the bread oven 2 nights. Cooked for 2 families. Used the rebuilt mud oven twice to make pizza. Also baked bread in the oven.
Chicken, pork and lamb from the farm are all available for sale, plus ham and pate.
The Komquat pizza restaurant in Rostrenen is still fab. Had lunch there surrounded by local french folk, loved it!
Kays meals are still super and it was nice to eat at 'the house' each Thursday night. Chicken & chips delivered to your tent on a Sunday & BBQ on a Monday.
What can I say? Of all the campsites we have stayed at, this is by far the most relaxing one I have ever been to. As soon as you arrive, you are instantly relaxed. I think that is due to the fact that there are no cars, the kids are able to roam freely and in safety, and there are only 8 or so pitches.
It is run by an English family, and Kay and Tony are so welcoming, interesting and interested in the guests. There is a daily bread/pastry delivery, farm chores and animals to feed. The kids loved making friends and getting involved with the animals.
There are pony rides, bikes to borrow and amazing cycle rides to be had especially along the canal. Each week there is a barbeque, which everyone is invited to and is a great way to meet people. There is also a roast chicken dinner, and lots of other ways to be involved.
The people there are either going to come back, or have been before. We have friends who have been two years running, it is the sort of place that you just want to come back to!
Stayed at Belle Vue end of June, arrival day pouring with rain. We should have been camping, Kay offered us the use of the mobile home until it stopped, we stayed in the mobile home for the remainder of our holiday.
Kay and Tony very friendly and helpful, Kay cooks evening meals if required which are very good value. Campsite takes about six tents, with electric hook-up, two mobile homes, two ready erected tents with full kitchen and proper beds and two gites, swimming pool, toilet block with super family shower room, with toilet and wash basin, smaller shower room with toilet and separate toilet, washing up area outside but under cover, did not use as we stayed in mobile home.
Based on a farm where you can help feed the animals with Tony and help on veggie garden if you wish!
No set play area for children but plenty of things for children to do away from computers and TV.
No shops in Mellionnic but plenty in Rostrenen about 20 mins away. Fresh bread and croissants delivered to farmhouse daily, if ordered the night before.
Wonderful rural site away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life but near enough to pretty towns and villages.
Kay, Tony and family very friendly and helpful and make you feel like part of their family. Would definitely go back (when the sun is shining!)
Spent 5 nights with Kay and family over Easter on our second visit to Belle Vue, which was just as good as our first.
Tony and Kay are the perfect hosts even ringing us one night to tell us we had left our camper van lights on. The kids helped out on the farm, fed the animals, bottle fed lambs, rounded up the sheep and went horse riding. The late night trip to the barn to feed the lambs with Kay was the highlight of their holiday.
The farm is gearing up for the summer season and we all can't wait to go back. A treasure of a site.
Another fantastic holiday at Belle Vue, thanks to Tony, Kay and the family. Weather better this year and pool was a must on some days. Loveley to see 3 other families who camped last year again, the children, now 6 + 8 were straight out of the car and renewing friendships. In the past I have heard of families finding great sites and returning each year to see the same people but I never thought we should be so lucky, lets hope it lasts! Already planning next years holiday. One find this year was a great pizza restaurant in Rostrenen, in the square near the church, complete with wood pizza oven. Kays meals still fab, lots of home reared meat and veg from the garden. Loads of home produced produce on sale at the house, sausages, burgers, eggs, ham, chicken. You can nearly eat off the farm and not bother with the supermarkets.
Toilets still the same as in my last review although there is a new shower in one of them. Still clean!
Playground is basic, but the children mainly make their own entertainment and ours rarley used the slide or swing. Lawn is nice and for the younger children the play area & lawn is a nice place to play whilst parents look on, perhaps in a lounger with a glass of wine!
Lots of local walks and interesting places to see, we used the car once in 2 weeks! The car was used to visit the canal, about 15 minutes away, the tow path is perfect for cycling. Bike hire on the site.
Animal feeding in the morning and afternoon still a hit with the children, and me!
Pony rides still great value, although Branston & Ondine are getting quite old now.
Pitches are well spread out - this is very very important to me, they are mostly level and our large cabanon frame tent fits our pitch no problem.
I am going to stop here as I will give away too many secrets. We will be booking as soon as the ferry timetable is out to make sure of our place again next year.
