 Fantastic site. Excellent location for exploring Normandy

Lovely and clean and quiet and safe.

The camp is small but it has clean toilets and warm showers. The only thing missing is a washing machine especially if staying a while.

Loved the chickens especially the wandering hen.

 I've stayed at this site four times since 2012 Twice in the Git and twice camping. A tent on the first occasion and this time in our campervan. Nice level site with good facilities.

The local town (you can walk to it) is really nice. We were there for the 75th D-day celebration and it proved to be a good base to see the beaches and the landing sites for the 101st Airbourne.

The owners are brill, such a nice couple. The site is highly recommended.

 Brilliant small site - quiet, friendly with great facilities. Arrived at short notice but they squeezed us on (no electricity), but normally would be best to book in advance - they only have 6 pitches.

No local facilities - bakers or bar - but only 3 miles to La Haye de Puits which is a good sized town with 2 supermarkets, banks and several bakers. Everything you could want. On a quiet lane with little traffic.

Campsite is British run but does not feel exclusively British with several Dutch people on site when we arrived - just a small friendly site with great facilities

Only 40kms from Cherbourg and in a lovely rural area close to the lovely Contentin beaches and resorts.

 This is our second visit to La BUCAILLE and again it was a superb site. Mark and Mel keep an excellent site with very clean facilities. They are very friendly and helpful whenever needed

The site is well positioned for visiting many interesting places. Haye de Puits has all facilities needed and the beaches near are clean and accessible

The site is quiet and the grass well maintained

Mel has chickens and the eggs that can be bought are really tasty

We will definitely return

 A lovely quiet and peaceful site, Mark and Melanie very welcoming. Mark sorted out a tow hitch problem we had in fact nothing seems too much trouble. We had a great stay and our dog was very happy also.

La Bucaille is now our default site we have already booked in for a return visit.

10 minutes from large empty beaches.

 This was our second visit to this lovely, very small and peaceful, 'no frills' campsite in a rural location. Toilets and wash facilities were clean and in good order. Electric hook ups worked well. Very friendly proprietors. It is very handy site for the Cherbourg ferries. We love the huge, empty, sandy beaches nearby.

 We were lucky enough to stay with Mark & Mel at la bucaille for a week in June.

The small site is an absolute delight.

The toilets and showers amongst the cleanest we have encountered.

The fresh eggs are wonderful and the chickens surprisingly quiet.

The local town has some lovely restaurants, Mark can recommend some of them to you.

We had our bikes with us and used both the Voie Verte which you can pick up in town and the local roads and lanes. The French seem much more aware of cyclists.

Itís just a short ride to the coast where there are fantastic sand dunes and some lovely cafes.

We hope to return with friends next year.

 We have just spent a couple of weeks at this delightfully run, and beautifully maintained site.

The owners, Mark and Mel are very welcoming and helpful.

We enjoyed cycling along deserted roads and the cycle trails are on the doorstep. The beaches are amazing and for keen walkers, the coastal path route is very accessible.

Plenty of full days out or just half days outings to visit, or just chilling at this peaceful site compliments any day!

Highly recommend as a perfect location, with the added bonus of friends or family having the option of booking into the adjacent Gite, !

 Lovely relaxing site where we were given a warm welcome by hosts Mark & Mel. They got the balance just right by being friendly and helpful but never intrusive. They came to our rescue with the free loan of a tv/dvd player when ours died on the second night of our 12 night stay !

The area is wonderful, lots of full days out or half days if you preferred. The local beaches were dog friendly up to the end of June and were vast beautiful expanses of sand as far as the eye could see. Bayeux is well within reach, less than an hour as are the Normandy Landing beaches.

Gorgeous patisseries from a wonderful shop in St Sauver which was a particular favourite.

Great holiday and we were very sad to leave. Is the weather always this good in the Cotentin in June!

Reviewer: Mandaapandaa 1 review from this member

 My boyfriend and I initially planned on staying at La Bucaille for 5 nights but eventually decided to extend our stay by 2 nights because of just how great it was.

The plot is cosy and intimate, so all the necessary facilities were very close by and more importantly, the vibe was really chilled, quiet and homely throughout the day.

Mel and Mark are both very welcoming, accommodated to our needs and even sold us fresh eggs for our breakfast in the mornings.

The facilities are very clean and there's even a small communal fridge where we were able to store some perishables.

The site itself is very close to the beach (about a 10min drive) and close to the local village La Haye du Puits where there is a bakery and grocers, ATMs, supermarket, etc. Its a great base to do be able to visit the many things that Normandy has to offer like amazing cidre breweries & landing beaches/museums.

I would definitely recommend staying here and look forward to visiting again!
