Our second visit to the site and we have recommended to family and friends. Beautiful, safe campsite, staff extremely helpful and friendly, great entertainment, children had a wonderful time and were able to have some freedom.

The campsite is in the middle of nowhere and offers limited, entertainment and limited swimming complex, it is apart from the pool changing rooms kept clean and tidy. These limitations mean it’s not worth going out of the way to stay their and in our opinion should only be used as a stopping point going to/from Germany to a site which offers more facilities and entertainment

An enjoyable week, despite the scorching weather that made camping more of an endurance some days! (I appreciate that you have no control over this!). The staff were all wonderful, especially Penny who was so friendly and accommodating. I would recommend phoning to book rather than using the Castels website, you get a much better experience.

Your clients with touring caravans should be prewarned about the narrow entrance to the site - we had to be on the wrong side of the road to enter. Much more thought needs to be given to the route suggested for larger caravans when driving around the site.

We found your camp by putting a search into our sat nav. We had not known of it before we arrived. The first night, we had a fabulous meal in your restaurant and entertainment. We were only going to stay a night but we stayed the week and would definitely return. Thank you especially to the staff who helped to jump start our car on the final morning. We made the ferry time we were aiming for that day from Calais. All staff were so polite and helpful. Staff willingly obliged when we requested items from the shop when it was shut. The pitches are a great size with clear definition and plenty of shade. We weren't bothered by the regular overnight storms and rain! Thank you for a relaxing stay.

10/10

We had a fantastic holiday. The staff were fantastic, the restaurant is reasonably priced and the food is home cooked and healthy. The pool is just lovely and the area is beautiful and relaxing. We love the outdoors so our kids require nothing more than fresh air, space and a safe environment which the campsite provided with abundance. This is the best family holiday we have had since our children (3 and 4) were born. Couldn’t speak more highly of the campsite and it’s staff👍

A wonderful campsite, plenty of signed walking available. Very friendly and helpful staff. A comfortable distance from channel ports so no need for a stop over.
