ADL, I don't think money came into it. Although his 'van is what I presume you lot refer to as a "COC", yes, I'm sure he can run to one of these wastemaster doodahs. I think (no, I'm certain) it was a genuine, innocent (albeit mistaken) belief that he didn't need one, or that his camping style didn't warrant one. Hopefully this thread will put him right (when I show him tomorrow night). For the record, he already has a hose pipe fitted... just long enough to end an inch off the ground!


As for La Ferme... We had a tap at the side of our pitch. Directly under this was the sort of "normal" drain you may well have below your kitchen window at home. The only thing we poured down that was the warm water from our 5L bottle, when we wanted to top it up with fresh.

I must admit, I didn't notice any specific "Grey waste" facilities, or indeed signage for such, but of course, being a tenter, who takes his dirty pots to the wash up area, I had no need or desire to seek one out!
I don't recall seeing anyone lurking around hedgerows though (more 'vanners than tenters, when we were there, including immediate neighbours), so if I had to hazard a guess, I'd guess there was.

Just remembered there was a disposal point at the side of the main loo/shower block we used. Definitely for the portaloo waste. No idea if the grey waste was anywhere nearby?

Cheers Mucker.
Just emailed the site, it was just a tap near our pitch, no waste disposal - not quite sure where that would be.
Sending email was worth it though, as they've had a cancellation on a fully serviced pitch so I'm in the process of changing the booking...
Moved to 109, hopefully as big as 168 looked, although I can't see the pitch itself from the 360 views...
Fully serviced though. Bless ya. No aqua roll lugging for Delard whilst on holiday

No, but you can see it on Google Earth!

With my very floppy tape measure, I make P109 c. 7m across the back, c14m across the very front (edge of site road) and if it ain't 20m from back edge to front edge, it won't be far enough short to argue about. My calcs make that 210m2... maybe 200, if they've allowed the trees to grow, or the gravel has bounced onto your grass!

Oh... and facing the front, I calculate the shadow under your nose will disappear around 12:29pm, give or take (Based on August 20th, as an example only, as I've no idea when you are going!) So don't forget the sunscreen! F 50 for the face! You may need it, if you're sat there all afternoon!


Using the same measuring technique, I reckon P168 is the best chunk of 160m2, but only to the front of the dividing hedge... there's a heck of a lot of "No man's grass" in front of that, before reaching the site road.

Ain't google great!

Enjoy!

When are you off?

I do love the facilities now available at Haven sites. Super Euro pitches with drainage etc etc, and landscaped! My caravan`s usually the oldest on these esteemed sites . . .!

You'll be able to see all the dirty stains your bro in law has left on the pitches he's stayed on using Google Earth Mucker :-)

We were concerned we may be swapping a sunny pitch for a shady one, but you've chilled us out on that one,cheers Mucker.

We'll be there mid to latter end of August...
