Just returned today from 5 days at this site and have been really pleased with it.

Just 33 pitches set amongst fruit trees with 3 toilets and showers each for men and women and then 2 separate shower / toilet units for 'handicapped' people which you can also use. We could always use the toilet and/ or shower when needed. Facilities were clean, showers hot and loo roll provided!

There is a tiny play area with 4 pieces of equipment so not a site if you have very active children expecting a big play area.

Site was quiet, other campers friendly and considerate ( a lot of Dutch campers whom we find quiet and friendly on the whole!). We had pitch number 4, I would recommend pitches 2- 9 as along the bottom is a fairly busy road and there would be road noise there.

No soap in toilets so bring own hand wash and you need a two pin adapter for the electric hookup - we spent ages trying to buy one locally, then discovered for a 20 euro deposit you can borrow one from Reception

The local village is very french and peaceful - hard to believe we were just 4 hours from our doorstep! Bread van at 8 am very welcome.

The site does get very full every evening but by 9 o'clock most people have moved on so we had the showers and loos without queues. We didn't experience noisy departures most people hooked up the night before and left quietly.

I would definitely return again and I am very fussy ! There is a lot to do locally and this site is a lovely haven.

You must be prepared to speak some french however as the lady on reception does not speak English.

Oh and you can only pay in cash and you need to have a passport or drivers licence for them on arrival.

Think that's it - hope you all enjoy the site as much as we did - vey depressing to leave the sun and hit the rain at Dover !

Super rural French site next to an impressive but not famous chateau (which can be visited at 5. 30pm each day with a guide). Site is set in an orchard and has lovely large pitches. Lots of people stop for one night but as many choose to have a longer break so it is not like a port site. Half an hour away from WW1 sites; best ones to see are Thiepval and Newfoundland Memorials. The War Museum in Albert is very dated. Bertangles is a delightful quiet village. Nearest shop (Carrefour) is in Villers Bocage a short drive away. Baker van comes to site 8am avery day. Amiens Cathedral is worth a visit and the Summer Son et Lumiere show is amazing; only the French know how to do this stuff so well. Don't miss it. 45 mins away from la Manqueterre bird sanctuary also very worthwhile visiting. Best to book this site on phone or email and you need to do it in French. They have a reservation system that is non-computerised and very efficient. Lovely friendly owners and many people return.

After studying choice of campsite for weeks before departure this was to be our main destination for our first trip to France with our caravan. I have to say though that it ended up our least favourite of the 4 sites we used. We arrived on a Friday afternoon and our reserved pitch was waiting for us, on hindsight we should have opted for another pitch further back from the '1 night stopover area'. We got sorted and went out for an explore of the surrounding area and some food shopping, when we returned about 5pm it was like coming into a different site, very very busy with people pitching all over the place, felt like we were on a motorway service area and was not at all restful. Facilities were adequate but really struggled to cope with volume of use, so whilst they may manage to stay clean when site quiet, they quickly went downhill due to sheer numbers using them, including campers 'out on the street' who could not get on site so just parked up alongside. All the over-nighters left early the next day and there were a couple of quiet hours before the afternoon rush started again.

I thought we could access the chateau grounds during the day, but this was only at a charge and the laundry consisted of 2 Belfast sinks with no plugs. Am sure the site is lovely when quiet but obviously best to avoid the weekends. We left after 2 nights.

We stayed at the chateau at Bertangles for 2 nights & really enjoyed our stay. We booked in advance & were given a grassed pitch, hedged on 2 sides for privacy. The campsite is in the chateau's orchard, which in itself was very pretty & the trees offered welcome shade too.

The shower/ toilets/ washing up areas were all clean & well maintained. There was also a small children's play area.

The reception was open on 3 occasions each day & sold wine, milk, the estates own walnuts & Picardy honey. I believe a bread van also visited, but we didn't use this.

We joined an evening chateau tour ( at 5 per adult) which was good & conducted in English & French.

The village of Bertangles was v pretty, but the only downside was that it was a bit remote. We'd hoped to get a bus into Amiens, but as it was during the French holiday season there was only one running from Bertangles at 7am with no return bus. However, we took our camper into Amiens & found good parking in the St Leu area.

Overall it was a lovely site & we really enjoyed our 2 very relaxing nights there.

On the basis of the extremely positive reviews, we booked 2 nights for 2 adults and a tent (no electricity) for 15/night. It's definitely worth pre-booking as this guaranteed a delineated, reserved pitch. We saw late arrival caravans pitched on the road outside the site!

The site is spacious and well kept and all toilet and wash facilities were clean with plenty of hot water. However a chemical waste emptying area seemed just a little too close to the crockery washing area! Two separate cubicles are reserved for physically challenged individuals.

Don't miss the 5/adult guided tour of the chateau at 5:30pm each evening (payment and tour start at reception). It's a wonderful opportunity to see inside (still lived in) and to hear of it's role within WW1. It transpired that the guide was the owner himself who provided the commentary in English!

The village cafe/bar provided a very pleasant diversion after the chateau visit for a Kir and draught Affligem strawberry flavoured beer: excellent.

We spent our available 1 day as tourists visiting Amiens (the cathedral is amazing), Albert (Excellent museum giving insight into WW1 history and Somme battlefields: http://www. Somme-trench-museum. Co. Uk/) and some of the cemeteries and memorials.

We would definitely return to this site both for convenience as a last stop before channel crossing and to stay longer and have a longer immersion in local history and culture.

We stayed here with our caravan for two nights to experience France on the 14th July Bastille Day celebrations at the start of our holiday.

We were not disappointed. The site was easy to find, well signposted and very well laid out. The pitches were large, ours being a hedged one giving nice privacy and plenty of room for the caravan, awning and car. Most of the pitches were like this with a few being open but still having a large pitch. We also had an electricity point and water tap close by.

The facilities were spotlessly clean and the lady at reception very helpful and put up with my very poor French. She invited us to join in with the village celebrations for 14th July and we joined the Mayor and a lot of villagers in a ceremony at the war memorial at lunchtime, followed by free wine and cake at the village cafe. We were also invited to the evening lantern procession around the streets which ended with a firework display at the village school.

We didn't hear any road noise and the site was quiet and very peaceful. All in all a lovely start to our holiday.
