Reviewer: Spooley 3 reviews from this member

We stayed for 8 nights at Le Vaugrat in the middle of June 2016. The site was quiet and we had the 'couples only' field at the top of the site to ourselves for the whole stay. We had a free choice of pitch - the site owner encouraged us to look around before deciding where to pitch - and showed us the location of the gate into the relevant field so we could drive in to park next to our tent.

At this time of year the field has plenty of sun throughout the day, with trees to the South-West and South-East providing shade if required. Views through the trees and over the top of the reception block to the North are of Baie de Port Grat - you can check the state of the tide by seeing how much of the rocky reefs is exposed!

There is a drinking water tap and washing-up sink with copious hot and cold running water on the outside wall of the building at the bottom of our 'top field'.

The site office and small shop is in this building, as is a pleasant recreation room with tv, comfy chairs and several sets of tables and chairs. There's also mains available for phone recharging etc. We made no use of these facilities.

The toilet/shower/laundry facilities are in the next block along: modern, bright, clean and well-appointed.

The only (mild) downside is the 20p metered showers - we'd rather pay 1 more per day and have unmetered showers, than have to ensure a ready supply of 20p pieces to feed the machines. One of the timers we used was set to 6 minutes (for 20p) which I found fine. But other timers had the advertised 3 minutes, although it could take more than a minute for the water to actually run hot. We got into the habit of wasting 'free' hot water from the basin taps before starting the shower, to ensure the pipework was up to temperature -- thus rather defeating at least some of the point of the timers!

The closest pub, the Houmet Tavern, is a 0. 5mile walk from the top of the campsite, down either Route de Vaugrat then along the coast road, or down Rue de Houmet from the gate into the top field.

0. 25mile further on, the kiosk out on the peninsular near the Rousse tower serves fine crab baguettes, with pleasant views from its benches over the many small boats moored in the bay.

Buses no. 31 and 32 pass the top and lower entrances to the campsite and run into St Peter Port on an approx. Hourly service.

In summary, a fine site with excellent facilities that was well-suited to our quiet, comfortable camping requirements. I'd happily re-visit it.

This was our first stay on this site and it certainly won't be the last. Excellent facilities which are spotlessly clean, although showers could do with 4 minute timer rather than 3.

The owners cannot do enough for you and the fresh baguettes every morning were amazing. It was lovely to be able to choose were we wanted to pitch our tent. With the beach close by this site is ideal for those wanting a relaxing peaceful holiday.

I have just spend a week tenting at this campsite with my family and we had a great time. The place is family owned and they are very friendly and can't do enough to help you out.

The campsite is quiet and relaxed. The pitches aren't formally laid out but spread over 5 fields(though 2 fields are set out for couples in a quieter area with superb views over the coastline). But this allows the tents to be spread out.

The beach is about 5 minutes walk, with a bus stop just outside the campsite which will take you around the island.

There are a couple of toilet blocks (always clean) washrooms, hot showers(20p for 3 mins), washing machine, TV room, with phone charging facilities and WIFI. There is also a site shop for food and general supplies opened at specific times in morning and evening.

There is no formal playground for children but there was plenty of space for children and families to play on the site.

We had a very enjoyable stay and would we will definitely be returning.

3rd visit to this site and still as good as previous years.

Run by a very friendly family and nothing is ever too much trouble.

Several large flat, neatly mowed fields to pitch on where you like. On the lower fields are a toilet block, with the showers and laundry and further toilets up near reception.

Showers are 20p for 3 mins and there is a coin operated hairdrier along with washing machine and tumble drier.

Great location with a bus stop right outside the gates to St Peter Port. We always take our bikes as everywhere is close by on Guernsey so the car is just a means of getting there.

A pub about 15 mins walk away and a beach even closer.

Would certainly revisit again.

Stayed for just over 2 weeks on this lovely site. Quiet and well equipped with large flat areas spread over a number of fields. Small minimal shop but open every day for essentials- bread, croissants and lovely Guernsey milk! Tony the manager/owner brought his own tomatoes, beans and figs to his 'hedge veg' stall. When I booked online he even made our ferry reservations for us at small discount. Facilities very clean although I wouldn't say disabled friendly as the toilet cubicles are small and you had to walk up a gravel hill to the shower block. A small playground for children would have been nice but I noticed that the teenagers certainly appreciated the TV room with WIFI!

Sited on the lovely west coast with fantastic beaches, near a good pub/restaurant and supermarket.

Would certainly use Vaugrat again!

I haven't visited this site so our ratings and dates for the site may not be accurate but I emailed the owner to ask if he accepted dogs. He was kind enough to phone me to say they don't allow dogs but was happy to help me find out more about visiting guernsey recommending 2 other sites. We had along very helpful chat ( at his expense) about the ferry crossings, accommodation, weather, best time of year to go etc. If this is an indication of the kind of customer service to expect, any camper should have a great time on his site. Thanks again
