I rented a caravan from Nick and Nicky with a view to staying a few days and was so happy with the quality of service I stayed for 2 weeks and used as a base to look around Bulgaria. Amenities were kept very clean and food and drink very competitively priced

Despite often referring to Tripadvisor this is the first time that we have been so delighted that we have placed a review. This camp site is absolutely outstanding and would be anywhere in Europe let alone Bulgaria! Breath-taking view. Perfectly situated in the country just out of town. Nick and Nicky, the owners, have the highest of standards and this is reflected in the quality of the whole site. Outstanding facilities from the shower (plenty of hot water), toilet block (very clean), washing machines, clothes driers, clothes lines, iron and ironing board. Unfortunately we were only able to stay 2 nights and regret not being here next week when the pool is open. They welcome children and have just acquired 2 rabbits to pet. The site is landscaped and althought little shade at the moment they have beautiful flower beds which are a joy. The restaurant / bar is excellent too with a well thought out mixture of local and English dishes. We have travelled from the UK and have probably stayed in 15 campsites and this has been the jewel in the crown.

Two things we are not able to comment on. 1 - they host a monthly car boot sale (check web site for the date). 2 - The pool when it is open is also open to the locals. We don't know what this means but Nick and Nicky are very open and can advise you if you drop them an email.

If you choose to stay here we would be surprised if you were disappointed. If you are planning to visit Bulgaria we recommend that you try to schedule in a stay here. This is an outstanding campsite and wish Nick and Nicky every success as they build up their reputation.

Thanks for taking the time to review our campsite and for the words of encouragement.

The market days run on the last Sunday of the month and attract quite a lot of campers to buy, sell and browse. The market operates from 08.00 to 13.00 so it is busy for four or five hours but then the afternoon is quiet and relaxing.

The pool is open to locals but there is always enough space for everyone to relax and cool off in the pool.

Best wishes for your future travels,

Best regards,

Nick and Nicky.

We found the most wonderful place, Camping Veliko Tarnovo.

Run by a British husband and wife team, Nick and Nicky Kinson, the site is marvellous and in stunning surroundings. Nick and Nicky have done a great job of building the campsite from scratch and have now been open for 5 years.

Having being avid travellers and campers themselves, they have the benefit of knowing what they would want from a campsite and offer the same levels of comfort, service and hospitality that they would like.

Tip top facilities are in abundance at Camping Veliko Tarnovo. Spotlessly clean bathrooms, no running out of loo roll, a hairdryer and even a family bathroom with low level sinks for the kids. There is a campers’ kitchen for those that that would like to use it and a laundry room with washers and dryers, and outdoor washing lines, complete with fully stocked peg bag!

There is a huge outdoor swimming pool. When we visited in April, the pool is closed as the weather is too cool. But it is not wasted with hundreds of frogs and toads having the place all to themselves. But don’t worry, Nick and Nicky remove the hopping creatures by the bucket load and return them to the local stream before the pool is spring cleaned and returned to its pristine condition in time for the beginning of June.

The excellent restaurant is open all day too, serving meals, drinks and snacks throughout the day. It is a credit to the Kinson’s that their restaurant is very popular with the local Bulgarians; the food is superb and they do just a marvellous job of hosting their guests and making folk feel right at home.

The campsite has loads of pitches, with drinking water and electric hook ups available and there are even a few caravans for rent for those without tents, their own caravans or motorhomes.

There are regular events throughout the year including Food Fairs, Car Boot sales, and family days; this weekend, Camping Veliko Tarnovo. is hosting its very own Car Boot Sale. Introduced to Bulgaria by Nick and Nicky, it’s becoming very popular. Easter weekend brought us to the local Orthodox Church for Midnight Mass and saw the local children and their families join the Easter Party with kids games, never before seen by the locals (such as the 3-legged egg and spoon race!).

Above all of these facilities, events and beautiful scenery, what made our stay so memorable is Nick and Nicky. The simply could not have done more for us, even being Graham’s taxi and personal translator is a local hunt for a banjo bolt. They are great fun and we enjoyed many evenings chatting and laughing over a glass of wine. Having stayed at the site for 11 days, we feel they have become our friends. Thank you to both of you!

I'm just back from a most fantastic weekend spent at this lovely camp/caravan/RV park. We live in Sofia and this place is around a three hour drive obeying all speed limits. I went with my eldest's Boy Scout Troop and we pitched tents on the flat and well kept individual 'pitches'. The owners, Nick and Nicky, are a fabulous couple and they genuinely will go out of their way to make your stay, be it short or long, the absolute best it can be. The on site facilities are first class and, I think, by far the best in Bulgaria. The setting is gorgeous looking out at an extremely picturesque valley with lakes and mountains in the middle to far distance. The main building with restaurant and bar has a large covered veranda that looks out over the vast views - this is a sightseeing venue in its own right. There is a massive 10 mtr X 20 mtr pool next to a block beside the 'pitches' with separate men's and ladies showering and toilet facilities. There are also external wash hand basins around the building. This block also houses a kitchen and a laundry room with laid on facilities for the use of guests.
Each 'pitch' has numerous power outlets and high pressure fresh water. The grounds, buildings and all facilities seem to be all recently built. So nothing is 'tired' or dated, it's all fresh, clean, and modern. I really couldn't recommend this place enough.
We did some hiking around the local village finding many Roman and older things to see. However, the highlight was an afternoon spent in Veliko Tarnova, wow, what a place.....an absolute must is a visit to the majestic and massive fortress/castle. Leave at least 3 hours for this and comfy shoes.....there's a lot to see and the word 'awesome' was surely coined for the spectacular views.

After two weeks camping elsewhere in Bulgaria, we were so pleased to find this oasis of quality camping. It was a comfortable site, with superb facilities, friendly staff and set in a lovely location. Wish we'd had time to have stayed longer.
