Nice friendly campsite with good walking for dogs. Generous sized pitches which are level and services close to pitch. Clean toilet and shower facilities which are modern and heated. Food on site very good.

We arrived at this lovely site without having made a reservation. We were made to feel very welcome, and the owner gave us a personal guided tour of the site. The pitches are very large, and most are surrounded by a tree hedge. The majority of pitches have water and electricity for your own use. We had a lovely alfresco meal at the small restaurant too, and we also eat the takeaway pizza, which was delicious. We stayed for 6 nights in September, and would certainly use this site again.

A well cared for site and as already said - enormous pitches, (some a little sloping) with hookup and water very close. Great sanitary block with lots of hot water, even for the washing up sinks! Friendly owner who provides a variety of cooked meals most days, which sounded lovely! Pity we were only able to stop a couple of nights, will return if possible!

Peaceful site, lovely hosts and nice size pitches. Really enjoyed our Dutch croquettes, the toilets are some of the cleanest and best we have used camping.

This is a fantastic campsite. The owners are very friendly and helpful and will meet you on arrival and take you around the site and show you all the facilities. The heated facility block is new and very clean and comfortable with lots of hot water. You chose your own pitch all pitches are huge and level. The campsite is well kept and very smart and tidy. The bar and restaurant are run by the owners. The food was freshly made and excellent quality at a reasonable price. DVDs and books are available to borrow.
In conclusion I wound not hesitate to recommend this caravan site and we will most certainly return here.

A lovely couple of days here on our way down to Spain.

A very pleasant welcome from the owner who were very ready for a rest at the end of the season but were still very happy to have us on their site.

Stopped 1 night late September but wish we had time to enjoy the site and surroundings longer. Facilities spotless and the whole experience although short was excellent. Why is this site only 3 star?

This is a super site, with what must be some of the biggest pitches I have ever seen! The toilet facilities are immaculate, and the owners are pleasant and helpful. The little bar area is very good, and the pool is fine.
The local town has basic facilities, with a couple of bars and restaurants, and a little supermarket. Local area is OK, but as we have a motorhome and cycle around when we are on site, I have to say, there are some challenging gradients. Brilliant site for caravanners!!!

A lovely site in a pretty area. The English speaking Dutch owners were very friendly and helpful. The pitches, all grass, were massive! As usual we only intended to stay over night and stayed the weekend. Shall certainly return. Many thanks.
