What a unique and amazing campsite. An absolute gem!
The directions we were given, via their fabulous website, were spot on. Situated seemingly in the middle of nowhere, with only the noise of cows, donkeys and distant church bells, it is just minutes from the route nationale serving north Brittany, and about 10 minutes from the fabulous town of Morlaix. (Go to the market there on Saturday morning!)
Some of the pitches are based around the upper farm, separated from each other by natural shrubbery; others are based around the edges of a huge field (electricity only at the top end; bottom end a LONG walk to the toilets!)
There are also pre-erected tents, cabins and beautiful statics - that look more like long gypsey-style caravans - for hire. The toilets and showers are clean (queues occasionally at peak times, but not lengthy) and adjacent to a reading room, housing free wifi, plug sockets, a full book-case, local tourist information, a day bed.
In another part of the farm, one of the buildings has been converted into a kitchen for the use of guests, with stove, microwave and a freezer for those freezer packs, or where you can opt for a cooked breakfast.
There are daily activities - yoga, traditional dancing, tractor rides, walks around the farm.
A fabulous place for families with young children (footstools are provided in the toilets, a baby bath in one of the shower rooms, 2 small playgrounds), and for those without.
Mme Crotty couldn't have been more helpful, and leant us a conversion plug (we'd forgotten ours!)to charge up our electrics - plenty of plug points.
You can order bread for breakfast (cheaper to get at the supermarket, but not as fresh if you can't buy it on the same day)
It was just wonderful. Even with the long walk to the toilet!
We stayed here for a fantastic week having studied the web site and UKCS review. Very little to criticise about this welcoming and well run site.
The pitches are well spaced in the orchard and the meadow (slightly sloping), most with an EHU nearby.
There are two facilities blocks, well equipped and clean. The reception area sells some farm produce including milk and gets bakery deliveries each morning in Jul/Aug.
There is a small children's play area but the whole site is safe and has plenty to explore, the farm is free to access all day as well as nearby woods. There is a small programme of daily entertainments put on by the family which are great fun, the tractor ride and storytelling was very memorable.
The owners are very helpful and friendly and do speak English. The whole site is thoughtfully set up in a way that makes you feel at home. I would love to have stayed longer and Croas men is definitely on the list for a return visit.
The wider area has plenty to occupy with beaches, markets, the town of Morlaix and outdoor activities.
The only downside was that it really IS a farm, so expect to hear a few animal noises day and night (including those donkeys in the picture, they don't say much but when they do it's quite loud!).
Stayed here last summer with a group and really enjoyed ourselves. The owners are friendly and welcoming and you don't need to worry about your French too much as they speak excellent English. It's a beautiful setting and kids (and adults!) love seeing the farm animals. There is plenty to see and do in the nearby area; there are clean beaches and coastal walks, small historic villages and great food (especially seafood) in the restaurants.
