We have just returned from 11 nights here and WOW!. Lovely site with great shops , facilities and the lake is superb. We have 2 daughters aged 3 & 7 who loved it. To have the choice of the pool area with its multiple pools and slides with a vast array of playground equipment vs the lake with pedlo's and our purchased on site inflatables was enough to keep them ammused all day. Swimming in the freshwater lake is wonderful and with a lifegaurded zone everyone's very safe.
There are several playgrounds around the site, the carrousel, pony trecks, cycle hire and that just for the adults !
The wooden chalet hire booked on the direct website was superb. Very clean and well equiped , even with a dishwasher and gas BBQ. This worked out far cheaper than Keycamp's caravans.
The weather can be variable, and we experinced the 40 degrees contstant sun for the first part of our stay to the torential rain on our last day mixed in with a few thunderstorms, but the indoor swimming pool can into its own that day. Supprisingly not packed out with campers.
The trip from the euro-tunnel crossing takes about 6 hours of driving and we added in a few stops for refreshments so allow about 7.5 hours, but these days with DVD players etc it was no trouble.
My only problem now is finding another site as good as this one for next year .Any ideas ?
