Reviewer: SilverSpiral 10 reviews from this member

 Visited with 4 adults and dog in September in our bell tent. We did not use the EHU, although there are plenty of points. It is just outside a village near Arras. It is well situated for driving, motorbiking and cycling, although less so for walking or public transport.

Arras has interesting museums and architecture. There is a park and ride scheme, which is free.

Most of the campers were from the Netherlands, and almost everyone was either in a motorhome or a caravan. There is a permenant section of the site too. Other campers generally were either very quiet or quietly friendly. Most were only staying for one or two nights en route elsewhere.

There are unisex toilets and shower areas both with individual cubicles, and individual sink cubicles. There is also a fully accessible toilet and shower, and baby bath areas. There is an outdoor (but covered) dishwashing area. The showers are simple push button and were nice and hot. The toilets and showers were clean and tidy, and fairly spacious. For some reason the toilet paper was outside the toilets. There are outdoor (covered) urinals.

The campsite were happy to allow us to put our freezer blocks into the icecream freezer and retrieve at our leisure.

There were (paid for) washing machines and tumble dryers, reasonably priced (I think 4 euro?). There were the usual waste disposal, chemical disposal and water fill up points for caravans.

We were a bit disappointed to discover that the restuarant had closed for the season (apparently only a few days prior!) although there were a couple of people nursing drinks in the bar area. The swimming pool and new sauna were likewise closed, which was a bit disappointing.

There are outdoor play areas suitable for younger and older children, and also indoor play space and seating.

The site itself was overall clean and tidy, although could benefit from a bit of an update in places (some of the children's play area looked a little dated and tired).

The ground is fairly hard - rock pegs are useful. Pitch size is generous, and if the site is not busy then you are free to spread out. Although the lower field was often fairly full, it was quiet and there was more space higher up. There are pretty straggly hedgerows with apples and flowers. Little yellow plastic tufts mark the pitches.

There is a faint noise from the motorway at night, but not loud enough to keep you awake.

The reception sells icecream, beer and wine, but nothing else! There is a friendly dog, cats and also an enclosed area with a pig, chickens, ducks.

We found that it was ok for our (quiet, well behaved) dog to be off the lead around our pitch, and the site was quiet enough in September for us to be able to throw the ball for her in an empty field without troubling anyone.

The pitches are quite nice and level, with short grass.

Plenty of water points around the site, slightly eccentrically done.

The reception was friendly and they had some local area information.

We were generally happy with the site and would be happy to visit again. On the ACSI discount scheme.

Good for: Just passing through (by vehicle), dogs, quiet

Less good for: Wild nights, super modern facilities

Reviewer: Clairek3265 2 reviews from this member

 Campsite was well laid out - like being in someoneís garden. It was quiet even though some areas were quite busy. Clean showers and toilets and good laundry facilities.

Supermarket was a bit of a drive away but it was large and had everything you might need.

Very convenient for Arras and the surrounding area.

Reviewer: Whitwick Wanderer 13 reviews from this member

 Have used this site on a number of occasions now as it is perfectly placed for the return journey home.

For that reason it is a very busy site but we have never felt cramped even when it is full. The staff are very helpful and all the facilities are of a reasonable standard.

The pool is heated and always warm and the games room is much appreciated as our group contains a number of children. The restaurant and bar look good with a decent menu but we have never used it.

On this occasion (2019) the cleanliness of the shower block did leave a bit to be desired when we arrived as it had obviously been well used and not cleaned leaving the floor very slippy. If you stay for long enough Arras is worth a visit and if you have forgotten anything you have a last chance to make your purchases at the nearby HyperU and Drive which does reasonably priced petrol and excellent baguettes and pastries!

Reviewer: PW555 19 reviews from this member

 Have used this campsite on a number of occasions for overnight stops, we stayed 2 nights on this visit before heading to Calais for the ferry home. A great site with really good facilities (Bar - Restaurant - Swimming Pool - Sauna etc) and a very hospitable owner who speaks brilliant English, in fact so much so that whilst in the bar the owner was having a joke in French with some regular static owners, he then took the time to come over to me to explain the joke so we could all have a laugh together. Just Brilliant.

Would highly recommend and will most certainly be using again.

 Visited this site for a one night stopover.

The staff were pleasant. The toilet facilities were adequate but in need of an upgrade. On the day that we were there, the toilet area had not been cleaned, we chose not to use the shower block.

There were electric hook ups. A bread van arrived on site in the morning.

Reviewer: Jonnmedds 78 reviews from this member

 We chose this site as a one night stopover on our way from the UK to the Rhone Alps, due to it's proximity to the A26 autoroute.

The site was easy to find and to access with a tourer. We received a pleasant welcome on arrival and we're told you choose any pitch.

The site itself was lovely. Toilets and showers were adequate. There is a bar and restaurant on site as well as a small pool.

One thing we did notice was the absence of any rule with regards spacings between units, luckily we arrived early so had the choice of pitches. But as the evening went on people were just setting up in between each other, the site on this occasion was overbooked.

 We use this site on return from the south of france every year. Its a great place to stop not far off route to calais.

The site has a good pool and bar and good food served too. The showers are always clean and tidy and plenty of room on pitches.

There is a super you about 5 mins from site in a car, to fill your car with food and French wine etc.

We have always felt welcome every time we stop 

Date of Visit: August 2015 Unit:  Campervan
Reviewer: Tonytiger86 4 reviews from this member

 We are a married couple very early 50s in a VW campervan. We stayed here twice in August 2015 at the start and the end of our 3000 mile European tour. We picked the site due to its close location to the motorway and we were glad we did. The receptionist was really friendly and helpful, the pitches were large, the wifi was free but you had to go down to the reception area to get a strong signal.

We really enjoyed the on site restaurant which had a good selection of food at a reasonable price. The site has a nice pool but we didnít use it. There are about 20+ static caravans on the site and these are to one side and appeared to be well looked after. Would have liked to explore the local area but we ran out of time.

The site gets a lot of overnighters so it`s best to arrive early afternoon or book. I would recommend this site and plan to use site again.

 This campsite is ok for one night but would not stay longer. The plus points are: Friendly receptionist, swimming pool, WIFI, clean toilets and showers at no extra charge. The minus points are: fishing lake is disappointing, some areas of the site felt very crowded. There were a number of static caravans and it was very busy with teenagers on their mobile phones. Did not use the swimming pool so cannot comment.

Reviewer: Laserbeam 1 review from this member

 We used this site twice this summer as a stopover on our way down south and also on the way back for 2 nights as we visited La Coupole the WW2 Bunker Museum. We were warmly greeted at reception after a little problem of finding it as our sat nav sent us to a very narrow road in the village. However local people were very helpful and we soon found the site. Having been told to select our own pitch we found one very near to the toilet/washing facilities. The site was on level grass and electric was available very near and water across the tarmac road way. The bread man visits the site each day in his white van and has his own spot across from reception at 8 30 nd 9 30 each morning although we found on our second visit he did drive around the site sounding his horn. On the second visit we chose a different site but slightly larger and whilst the weather was ok for us there was a fair bit of mud on the plot. At reception we found English was spoken and they were very friendly and helpful. In late September the Play areas for children were empty but I would think that these and the on site pool in the main summer period became very busy. Very well run site with plenty of super markets etc within local driving distance. We shall certainly come again if we visit eastern France again.
