We called in on spec for a couple of nights. We were given a warm and friendly welcome by the owner and had our pick of pitches as no-one else currently on site.

We did find the road noise intrusive, it's a fairly main road and lorries thunder up and down all day, even into the evening and early morning it was very noticeable.

Pitches are a medium size on gravel - grass areas next to pitches are spotted all over with sand due to to mole holes. 16amp electricty on pitch, wifi only available around the other side of the house where you can sit and use.

There are two loo/shower rooms - both well kept and the showers piping hot water with good pressure. A washing up sink outside the loos but no laundry area that we saw.

There isn't a motorhome service point, and a hose wouldn't reach. There is a chem disposal and a grey water drain, again over by the loos.

The site is well place for visiting places such at St. Mere Eglish and Utah Beach. Caranten is 20 minutes away and has several supermarkets. There is also good shops at the small town 4. 5 km from the site.

For us, the site is beginning to look a bit shabby and un-loved. Dead plants in pots, the large concrete area covered in moss, the picnic bench is desperate for paint job - small things that could be improved in a day or two.

We paid 20 for 2 adults incl. Electric and showers. Its certainly well place for travel to and from the ports and open all year.

To endorse previous comments. Added advantage is that site is open all year, which is rare in this part of Normandy. Tidy site, gravel hardstandings a bit tight on width for access without treading on the myriad of mole hills in the fine sandy soil! Great san facs with lots of hot water etc. 4. 5 kms to nearest village, but it has everything. Newest family member, 'Jazz' the most gorgeous border collie pup made the visit perfect! Delightful owners who will help out if needed.

My partner and I spent a week on this quiet little site at the beginning of August. The owners were great, very welcoming with lots of advice and literature about the area including tourist spots, shopping and restaurants. They were also very knowledgeable re: the local history.

The site is tidy and the shower/toilets were immaculate with lots of hot water, the pitches only had hook ups, no water or waste. The site is on a busy main road but we didn't hear any traffic noise, the downside being that you're not within walking distance of anything, the nearest villages are about 3 miles either way. We accidentally set our van alarm off one afternoon and Steve (owner) came straight out, which was really reassuring.

The D Day beaches and museums were all within an hours drive and the nearest town Caratan was 15/20 minutes away and was very charming with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants including a lovely walk around the port.

An ideal site for visiting the area or as a stopover, we will definitely use it again.

Just to endorse the other positive comments about the site, the area and especially the extremely friendly and accommodating owners. There is easy access to the site from the main road, round the back of the owners' attractive property, leading to the 6 level, well laid-out hard-standing (a real bonus for a site open all year round) pitches, with plenty of grassy areas alongside and around them. Although there was some road noise, we did not find it intrusive, either through the day or overnight. There is no playground, pool or entertainment, but for couples or families who prefer a simple, quiet, well-run and maintained site, this is ideal for either a short stopover or a longer stay to explore the area.

We stayed here for 5 nights and plan to return in the future. Well managed and run by very helpful family owners, we (including our pooch) were made very welcome indeed. The site only has 6 pitches, but the field is spacious and well set up with hard standings and hook ups. The facilities are simple but clean and functional. There is also a bar facility, which is very pleasant, friendly and inexpensive - we don't usually bother with this sort of thing, but we thoroughly enjoyed a couple of drinks here. The site owners (Hazel & Steve) couldn't have done more to help us and made for an excellent few days. This site is thoroughly recommended.

Stayed here for 2 nights on our way back from Spain but will come back for a longer chance to explore the fascinating area. We did go to Omaha Beach and Bayeux. The site is simple but well set out with excellent facilities. The owners are charming and extremely helpful. The only downside for us was that the waste dump is set up for caravans and it was not easy to access the fresh water tap as the ground nearby was too soft. Another tap and a motorhome friendly waste dump would make this a first class site.
