We arrived after horrendous delays at Dover (yes it was that weekend). Thankfully the campsite was a haven of calm. We have been before and vowed to return and we were not disappointed. The pitches are spacious. The facilities excellent and the staff are great. What more could you ask.

Just returned from our annual visit to Le Brevedent. I refer to it as 'wearing a comfy sweater. ' Nothing much has changed since last year so I'll briefly say:

Reception was fist class as usual - welcoming and friendly.

Pitch was clean, level and large.

Shop is fine for basics. Fresh croissants, baguettes every day but now you have to order them the day before. They pain au raisins were delicious.

Take away pizza was very good and the packets of frites are very generous too.

The sanitary facilities were always spotlessly clean and there was only one occasion that there wasn't any loo roll. The water in the wash basins was cold and there are no plugs. There was plenty of hot water for showers in the morning however we do get up early so I can't comment about later in the day. The disabled shower and toilet are very basic.

The grounds were immaculate and as a pitch became empty the grass was cut before the next occupant arrived.

I was glad to notice that the two bridges over the lake and the stream had been repaired to a good standard as I knew they would be; someone complained about their state of disrepair last year.

This year the camp site had a vast array of European visitors: Dutch, French, Italian, Belgian, Latvian and Irish plus the English.

Us: We've booked for next year already!

I love this site! What a hidden gem!

We stayed for a couple of nights with Eurocamp, just to break our journey on our way back to Calais from Brittany. I didn't have high expectations, but loved it!

After a rather stressful journey to the site with a grumpy toddler our arrival on site couldn't have been better. We got out the car to find rabbits, guinea pigs and fluffy chickens on the lawn. Our grumpy toddler was instantly transformed into a happy, excited little boy! The small shop is very basic, but you can order bread and they sell ice lollys! Behind the reception/ shop is a small bouncy castle and other little tykes type toys perfect for our almost 2 year old. There's also a small cafe/bar and site run kids club sharing the lawn. It's the perfect chilled out and relaxed start to a holiday!

We stayed in a Eurocamp Safari tent which is fantastic. But the all the pitches looked good size and plenty of water taps and no long walks to toilet blocks. Our toilet block was immaculately clean, even if a shabby-chic/ rustic charm with flowery tiles and contrasting paint work. Plenty of loos and showers in the couple of different 'rooms'. Hot water and no push buttons :-)

The lake in the middle was great fun. We borrowed a paddle and took out boat to say hello to the ducks.

The restaurant was lovely. A good choice of menu and delicious. They had run out of most wines ('as it was the end of the week') and outside terrace was in full sun in the sheltered courtyard so pretty hot even in the evening. But a great service and lovely food.

Such a shame we didn't have much time here are a gorgeous site. Definitely one I'd return to and explore the area.

We stayed here at the end of June for only 2 days. It was our stopover site on the way to Loire Valley. As it was still low season we rented a safari tent through Eurocamp. Since we also booked a ferry crossing through Eurocamp we saved about 60 which almost covered the difference in cost between using our tent and 'glamping' for 2 nights. The tents were very spacious with stylish beds, bbq, cooker, fridge etc.

The facilities could be described as slightly shabby chic but always spotless.

The kids enjoyed the playground, paddling and swimming pool as well as a cold stream and a pretty bridge.

If I was to return for longer with my own tent I would probably miss pitches with a bit of privacy as they are mostly open space.

This was our first visit to Le Brevedent and what a great time we had. The weather was awful most of the 12 days we were there and the pitches couldn't cope with the rain, but hey we were camping not 4 star hoteling. The site is in a fantastic setting on a quite road out of Blagny le chateau, surrounded by woodland and corn fields. The site is not of the highest standards you can get on other sites but don't let that put you off, stay 1 night or 4 weeks like some people do, this site is a little piece of heaven. Less than 30 mins to the coast is a plus and so is the fact it is less than 4 hours drive from Calais.

There is a small fishing lake with a few big Carp in and canoes available to hire. Choose this site for your relaxing Normandy holiday and you will chill out big time.

Been back a week now from our annual holiday to France stopping at Le Brevedent again. We love this camp site and are happy to return every year. I haven't noticed anything new since my last review.

The weather was awful, continuous rain nearly every day and most nights therefore leading to mud and dirt. Our pitch was extremely muddy and water cascaded under our trailer tent pooling in our awning. Quite dangerous as we lift our disabled son in and out of the unit. The site staff did an excellent job of putting sand down to make it safer; they raised our step on planks to prevent if from sinking further. Lots of caravans needed towing off their pitches by the tractor. This isn't the fault of the camp site they can't control the elements.

Toilets/Showers - The water in the showers was quite a lot hotter than last year but the pressure drops if someone flushes the loo. I refuse to use the ancient block it is yucky. The blocks were *clean and there was always loo roll. The floor was *grimy when the rain had been really bad and people were very lax about using the squeedgy mop after they had showered. A shelf for toiletries is required in the lower shower block, I lost count how many times I had to grope on the floor for my shampoo/shower gel.

Shop - sells basic requirements and sells fresh croissants and baguettes every day however the pain au raisins are smaller but still the same price as last year. This year they have begun to sell newspapers too, a day late and really expensive.

Restaurant - we ate here once this year because in the past it had been 'hit and miss' I can genuinely say that we really enjoyed our meal and the price wasn't bad either its not Cordon Bleu but was hot and tasty. Space was made without fuss for our son's large wheelchair.

Bar - we don't use the bar because it is in the chateau and isn't accessible for wheelchairs but in fairness Raph did offer to have our son and his chair lifted up by his staff.

Disability/mobility - in parts the site is on slopes and the paths are somewhat uneven or gravelled. The disabled shower/toilet is OK but there is nothing to sit on in the lower block if you have problems standing, you also need something to put your toiletries onto too.

Some work needs doing on the two bridges which cross the streams on the camp site they are quite dangerous and would be closed off by our Health and Safety people but knowing this site I'm sure this is on their 'to do' list.

Reception/staff - as always friendly and helpful and they all speak a number of languages. They are all knowledgeable about the surrounding area for visits etc.

Contact with the outside world if you must use your phone is difficult, phone signals are very hit and miss unless you walk up to the gate and wander about, however there is free WiFi outside the cafe.

Area - There is so much to do if you are interested in the D day landings but there is more besides. Everyone just associates Normandy with the war which is a shame.

Supermarkets - you have three to choose from: Intermarche Hpermarket on the approach road to Pont L'Eveque, E Leclerc in Lisieux and Carrefour in Cormeilles.

If you want luxury stop in a hotel. If you want to relax and enjoy the scenery and are prepared to rough it a little bit then this is the place for you. Shabby chic describes it perfectly. Me, I've already booked for next year.
