We stayed here overnight on our way home. Our satnav directed us via a free ferry, which zipped backwards and forwards across the river.

The welcome from the lady on reception was friendly, bread ordered for the following morning and given a map of where to find our pitch. Pitches were numbered, varied in size from quite small to spacious. Some had to be accessed from quite narrow roadways. I think they must be quite good at matching units to pitches. I did notice a sign at the site entrance saying twin axel caravans could not be accommodated.

We were pitched opposite the play area and shower block. Showers were quite new, clean and well laid out, toilets were separate from showers and showers closed during the night.

The swimming pool looked welcoming, if not that big, the whole site was quite compact but well laid out, it was half statics, half touring. We walked down to the abbey in Jumieges but sadly didn't get to go intas it was just closing.

We had a peaceful nights sleep, the site is in a quiet area, away from major traffic. EHU and water were both on the pitch. The pitch was pretty bare, not sure how much attention they get in the off season but if they are being used every night it is to be expected I suppose.

We stayed for two nights on our way back to Calais from Britanny. We asked for a quiet shady pitch as we had a dog and this was exactly what we were given. The pitch was large and surrounded by tall hedges and kept in shade by a wonderful old oak tree.

WiFi was available to buy and perfectly useable from the pitch.

Roads within the side are of an adequate width but it gets VERY tight going around corners, thankfully the hedges are neat and well trimmed and so don't scratch the hell out the sides of your caravan when you drive past. However, when some campers park their cars hanging over the roadway and are content to watch you shuffle your car and caravan back and forth to get around the corner because they can't get off their bottom to put their car on their pitch. Grrr

The site owners were very friendly and helpful and lamenting the fact that they've relaxed their budguie smugglers only in the swimming pool :D The pools were small, but clean and unfortuately four dutch teenagers were so rude they were preventing anyone else from enjoying the pool. My OH & I were in less than a minute before one of them jumped on my head. The pool was of a sufficient size to make us known that it was deliberate. Not the site owners fault, it would be so much nicer (for those of us who don't think the sounds of screaming teenagers are akin to an auria, ) if there was half an hour each day where only adults are allowed in the pool. Again, this could apply to every campsite. PLEASE!

There are washing machines and driers to use (token operated) which were the cheapest we found on our trip. There was also a TV and pool table room which would be ideal in rainy weather.

The site is ideally placed to visit Honfleur and the surrounding area, although if you plan to visit Honfleur, leave early as finding parking spaces there can be tricky.

Having spent a couple of nights here last year we decided to return for a week. The owners were very friendly and helpful, happy to let us try out our french but also able to speak english.

The pitches are mostly in full or part shade, the site is in a forest! We were very grateful for this as the weather was exceptionally hot. We had a full service pitch which was plenty big enough, some of them were a bit smaller.

The facilities blocks were always clean, one is older.

There is a small pool and also a small play area and boules court. The village is nice and has cafes, a small shop and the abbey.

Lots of places for day trips, Rouen, Honfleur and Deauville also Normandy landing areas.

Ideal site for a stopover or a longer stay in a quiet location.

We would return.

We stayed here for two nights on the way back to the tunnel. Run by a friendly husband and wife team, this pleasant site is within easy walking distance of Jumièges, with its attractive abbey ruins and connections to Edward the Confessor and William the Conqueror. The little town has plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from, plus a little supermarket. On site, individual pitches vary in size, but all are set in their own hedged enclosures, giving plenty of privacy. The modern facilities are well-maintained and immaculately clean. The snack bar is little more than a swimming pool kiosk, but it serves local beer and the adjoining shack serves pizzas and various things with chips. (No food on Fridays).

Finally, a warning – the approach from the south or west is via a free ferry over the Seine, but please note that caravans would bottom on the ramp and are not permitted. A diversion via the Pont de Brotonne is required.

We stayed here for 2 nights en route to Loire Valley.

It is a pleasant site on the outskirts of a nice village and within an easy drive of Rouen and the coast. We spent a lovely day in Rouen.

The pitches are a good size and private. Some are down quite narrow entries but these mostly housed tents. We had a large full service pitch which was excellent.

Facilities were french and very clean, there were two blocks old and new.

The pool was small but looked nice, no time to sample. The snack bar and bar were again small but good. The lady on reception was lovely as were other staff. We were delayed by operation stack and arrived after latest check in but having phoned ahead there was no problem.

Seriously considering going back next year for longer.

Nice site and very easy to fine - watch sat nav unless you have a 'towing caravan' type as you need to access via the bridge on the D913 as the river ferries don't take caravans or motor homes. We arrived around 10am (overnight crossing to Caen) and despite being 2 hours earlier than official arrival time Madame was most helpful and allowed us to pitch up, there is a large lay-by just outside the camp site entrance where we saw other outfits later in the week - I guess this is an option if you can't get on earlier than 12:00. The site has a variety of pitches, each one surrounded by a fairly high hedge - not great if you are with mates. Our pitches were really shady and didn't get much sun at all and because the weather wasn't great, were rather dark most of the time. The facilities are really good - showers and loos spotless. Reception takes orders for bread etc ready for pick up the next day. The town of Jumièges is lovely - several nice bars and cafes, the area is great for cycling and the surrounding countryside is beautiful.
