Alan Rogers Review

This spacious, family run site is set in the grounds of a 19th-century château. It is conveniently situated for the Channel ports and tunnel, providing overnight accommodation together with a range of facilities for longer stays. There are 110 touring pitches, all with 10A electricity hook-ups and 31 with hardstanding. These are interspersed with 20 privately owned mobile homes and caravans with a further 18 for hire. Most pitches are delineated by trees and hedging. Mature trees form the perimeter of the site, through which there is access to woodland walks. Even when the site is busy, there is still a sense of space with large green areas kept free of caravans and tents.

The World War Two Blockhaus nearby is worthy of a visit, as is La Coupole at Saint Omer, which also dates from this period and is equally fascinating. There is a market at Watten on Fridays and at Saint Omer on Saturdays. Boat trips on the pretty Audomarais marshes are a peaceful way to spend an afternoon.
