Very easy access for large units. Ideal stopover but also good for longer stays.
Very helpful staff. Highly recommended.

Guter Platz für eine Nacht auf der Durchreise, aber nicht für einen längeren Aufenthalt. Besonders negativ fanden wir die winzigen Sanitäranlagen, wo man auf der Toilette sitzt, während direkt hinter der dünnen Trennwand jemand sein Geschirr wäscht. Konnten wegen schlechten Wetters nur auf der völlig offenen Fläche in der Mitte stehen, weil man Angst hatte, wir würden uns unter den Bäumen festfahren.

Por la tarde hay muchos insectos, gran cantidad de mosquitos.
El bloque sanitario es muy pequeño.
El grifo de la ducha es un pulsador que dura muy poco, hay que estar constantemente pulsando.

Stopped for one night on way north. Plenty of pitches on open grassland or in woods. Not enough toilet facilites were open and not much hot water for washing up. Pitches were great but facilities let this site down. Close to A20 so Ok for one night when heading north or south.

Staff on arrival were excellent, pitch in woods or on open grassland.
Facilities appear to have been uplifted to a excellent standard. Wifi free and fast in lounge.
As in ACSI book ideal stopover for travelling North/south.

Een echte overnachtingscamping met restaurant.
Vriendelijke ontvangst met uitleg.
Camping bestaat uit twee grote grasvelden en een bomenbos, maar er zijn te weinig stroomaansluitingen dus vroeg komen. Geen broodservice.
Sanitair is vrij nieuw en schoon, maar echt veel te weinig voor de grootte van de camping.
WIFI gratis bij de receptie.
Omgeving is mooi. Automuseum en kasteel binnen een uur rijden.

prima geschikt op doorreis. zelfs 2 dagen gestaan om lekker te ontspannen. grote kampeerplekken. jammer dat anderen dat niet zo zien en het liefst bij je in de dissel parkeren. douche, wc in 1 ruimte maar dat zie je wel meer. wel schoon. restaurant aanwezig maar niet geprobeerd. omgeving weinig te wandelen. zwembad gesloten maar was bekend. een aanrader voor een tussenstop

We use this campsite as a stopover on our way south to Spain and north to UK in off season. It always has plenty of room and has a very pleasant atmosphere. The facilities that are open to us when we are there (3 times) are two showers, two toilets and a sink in the same location for washing dishes - not great!
