Well-hedged, landscaped and sheltered, this camp has a number of long-term campers in residence, but there are still plenty of sites for casuals. A nice touch is the ability to shower and wash in the privacy of your own en-suite facility on each campsite. There is a communal laundry with all the facilities and near the rear of the camp is a modern kitchen. Sorry, no pets or dogs allowed.
