The campsite's greatest facility is of course it's size - at 8 acres it has room for 300 emplacements and yet is limited to 100, so you're never crowded and it's all grass... We don't want our campsite to be the sort of place where everyone just locks themselves away in their camping cars and watches their TV and the facilities reflect this.
Toilet and shower block
The shower block dates from the 70's and is thus very substancially built and boasts a total of 11 showers, 12 WC and 15 wash basins - plenty for the maximum capacity and includes a large shower room/toilet area for handicapped campers and families with smaller children. The showers are hot and have decent pressure and there is also a large laundry/washing-up area which boasts a large commercial washing machine. All of this is 'Vintage' themed to add to the general feel of the campsite. The showers are free to use as is the use of hot water etc - all included in the basic price of 6 Euro per person per night.
The campsite has two large covered areas. One is set in the main lightweight camping field and is kitted out with picnic tables - set by one of the camp kitchens it's a place people often congregate for the evening meal. The other covered area is in front of the main office where a large covered terrace is free to use with its cafe style tables and chairs - here you'll also find free WiFi.
There are currently two camp kitchens set up on the campsite. Here you'll find cookers, fridges and all the pots/pans/plates/cutlery you need. This is free for any camper to use and frequently becomes a hub for some rather inventive cooking as people share cooking and get together. They are set right by covered areas and so cooking and eating can be right next to each other. Of course we also have barbecues available.
There is a large fire pit on the campsite where you can 'light-up' and relax on a chilly evening...
Children's play area.
The single best play area for smaller children is a sand pit, and we have an enormous one;-) Right next is a small slide - though we don't have an adventure playground the fact that the site is so large and safe to run around in means it can still be an adventure for children. The space also means that those wanting some peace and quiet (including parents) can easily find quiet corners away from the play-area.
While not really a 'facility' this is a bit special and an integral part of the campsite. People can get onto its tow-path without even crossing a road and so it's totally safe to let children just strike off (provided they don't cycle into the canal) - people can go swimming in the river which borders the campsite and of course the fishing is superb - pitch your tent in the right place and you could cast into the water from your bed;-)
