Fauxquets Valley Farm Camping
Reviewed August 22, 2013

First trip here in 20 years and it has developed nicely. Heated pool is a real plus point, and the kids really loved the park, games rooms and mini farm with pigs, sheep, chickens, turkeys and goats. Small shop sells essentials, and you can order croissants, pain au chocolat and baguettes for the next day. The site is well located with 20 minute access by car to any part of the island. The pitches range from open field no electric jumbos to more convenient elec hookup standard pitches closer to the facilities. These are still big enough to take a large tent and car without problem. Showers and toilets could possibly do with another clean per day but that's a minor issue. There is a restaurant on site but it put up a sign during our visit in mid-Aug to say closed for the season - bizarre! Anyway, a stone oven pizza van visits the site on a Sat night, and the shop sells take away chips most nights of the week so there are some on site food options. Lots of eateries a short drive away (Fleur du Jardin was really nice, and the Last Post pub is a simple family pub with small playground and can be walked to). The site dog was very popular with all the kids, although a few ppl did say that it stole bread from their tents and was observed peeing outside tents as it was left to roam around freely. On the whole cannot really fault it, will definitely come back - the kids won't forgive me if we don't!)

Room Tip: Pitches near the pool are subject to more ppl traffic. Handier if you want to be in the pool lots th...

What a great place for a holiday on what is simply a jewel of an island in the channel. The pools location is perfect to catch the late afternoon sun when you return from a day on any one of the islands amazing beaches. There are so many to choose from. The Haybarn restaurant is excellent value with good portions. The Greek salad is highly recommended by my wife. This is such a friendly site. The owners daughter Eva is a proper little character. Expect a daily visit from Morley the Labrador chasing any nibbles. The pitches are nicely laid out with hedges dividing giving as much privacy as you choose. Fresh drinking water is readily available from conveniently located taps around the site and the washing up and shower block is kept at a high level of cleanliness. This was our first time camping and the Guernsey couple in the opposite pitch happily came to our rescue when we first arrived and amazingly left us their tent as a gift when there weeks holiday ended. A storm left our gazebo a twisted mess the first night leaving us short on space. If you have never been to Guernsey you will love it, friendly people. Great food. Great if a bit changeable weather and an endless choice of beaches.

My husband and I stayed at this campsite with our dog and had a fantastic time. When we arrived we were given a choice of pitches, all of which were very spacious. We chose to pay for electric hook up while we were there, as well as this our area (which had six pitches in it) had access to a drinking water tap and was enclosed/separated by trees and bushes which was very aesthetically pleasing as well as offering some privacy and shelter.
The facilities at the campsite were very good, the showers/toilets were very clean and there was always hot water. The shop/reception stocked basic food supplies as well as cold drinks. Hot drinks could be ordered from the reception as well as portions of chips for £1.50. Free wi-fi was available at reception with a sheltered terrace to sit and relax. There was a decent sized outdoor heated pool which was very popular and the campsite has an animal area where you can walk around and see pigs and chickens etc. There was also a playground, a games room (popular with children/teenagers), a small television room, a laundry room and washing up area.
There was a small restaurant adjacent to the campsite, The Haybarn, which offered reasonably priced meals, the specials were advertised on the campsite each day. My husband and I did not visit this restaurant so I cannot comment on the food.
This campsite is very good value for money, has all the facilities you would want when camping and more and is located fairly centrally on the island. We will definitely be returning to this campsite in the future.

recently camped here for the first time - as I live on Guernsey we don't normally go camping a couple of miles from home....but I will now!!
We were spoilt with gorgeous weather so made use of the pool and kids loved playing outside and checking out all the animals.
Spent 2 nights, family gathering plus wider group of friends - kids were exhausted every night and when we got home begged for us to go again...we don't need much convincing!
Stayed in our small camper van, used all facilities (showers and loos very clean and always hot water), barbecued on pitch and highly recommend sausages and rocquettes cider sold in the shop!
Run by lovely family.

We have stayed at this site for the past 2 years and plan to return this year. I have to say we are avid campers and Fauxquets is the best site we have stayed at. You are guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome. The site is centrally located in a quiet area of the Island. A perfect base to explore the whole Island. The little chapel is a short walk away down some beautiful green lanes.

I would highly recommend. Lovely, clean amenities, swimming pool and well stocked shop! Can't wait to go back!
