Wild yet well organised with a fantastic location

Uzerche isn't known as 'the pearl of the Limousin' for nothing. It’s cluster of ancient, turreted buildings, clambering up towards the steeple of its hilltop church, creates one of the most scenic townscapes in all of France, while the languid pace of the river Vézère imbues a sense of calm and serenity across the entire settlement. Slithering around the town in a tight loop, it’s as if the river has squeezed the old centre upwards, the grey-stone buildings crowning the surrounding valley with their spikey rooftops and rows of classical arches.

Were you to climb the church tower and peer from the narrow windows, it would be a struggle to pick out the neighbouring village of Condat sur Ganaveix. Though just six kilometers away, the flanks of trees and numerous shallow valleys disguise it among the countryside, but it’s on the edge of the village, nestled among such lush surroundings, that Camping Moulin de la Geneste is found.

Spread across 10 acres but with only around 45 camping pitches, Moulin de la Geneste is a country campsite as naturally suited to its surroundings as the birds in the trees and the trout in the river. Much of the site is made up of unmanaged pockets of woodland and long grasses, while three specific camping areas provide space where tents can be pitched or motorhomes parked up for the night. The attitude is pretty relaxed. Events are suitably spontaneous and homemade – be it floating candles on the lake, a treasure hunt, story telling in the fairy garden or feeding and brushing ponies – but there are plenty of happy constants to keep you busy through the day. Boules and basketball courts entertain in the warm summer evenings, while managed footpaths lead you through the trees by day, to quiet picnic areas and streams perfect for kids to dabble and splash about during the midday heat.

When you do head elsewhere, though, there is plenty to do. Uzerche itself has a wealth of important heritage – the central abbey is a sign of its pinnacle of influence during the 1100s and the surrounding fort-shaped buildings that were a style of the time have led to the French saying “He who owns a house in Uzerche has a castle in the Limousin”. It’s not a place of fast-paced, fist-pumping modern life, of course, (though join the local canoe outfitters and you’ll certainly find some speed on the downstream rapids) but for a little casual exploration there are few better spots – it’s as if the town were tailor made for aimless ambling.

When you slide your rook across the chessboard back at Camping Moulin you can’t help but feel the timelessness of the whole area: The beautiful Limousin, its mature woodlands and ancient settlements, and the age-old beauty of camping out beneath the stars. “Beware”, their website warns, “You may find yourself staying longer than you planned”. It’s not a counsel to be taken lightly.



2 shower blocks with 5 separate showers, 5 separate toilets, 1 disabled room, 1 baby/family room, 4 sinks in cubicles, 2 sinks out of cubicles, 1 urinal, 2 washing up rooms, 2 washing machines and 1 caravan/MH cartridge waste. There is free WiFi at reception and communal fridges in the shower blocks. The trout river and large lake are well stocked with fish and the lake has two small rowing boats and canoes for use. Kids will love the positive menagerie of animals, including ponies, goats, pigs, chickens and the owners three buoyant springer spaniels. There's a boules pitch, table tennis, basketball net, small football area, badminton, two outdoor chess tables, an adventure playground and donkey hire/trekking. There is also a fantastic 'fairy garden' with a  wishing well, chimes, tree swing and hidden fairies for children to find!

Suitable For

Everyone's welcome, including dogs (although they must be kept on a leads).


Uzerche is a charming town to stroll with its inviting centre and Friday market brimming with the finest Limousin produce. For something a little more adrenaline-fuelled, visitors can take to the Vézère with some white-knuckle canoeing with trained instructors Base de la Minoterie (0033 555 730 284).
Pompadour equestrian centre (0033 555 985 547) is the place to go to admire some of France's master riders at work. If chateaux are your thing, Segur-le-Chateau (22km away) – le plus beaux villages de France – is well worth a visit. When the heat becomes too much, head to one of the region's stunning lakes at Bournazel or Teignac – there's a diving board at the former and pedaloes at the latter.

Food & Drink

There's a bread delivery from the local boulangerie every day during July & August, so campers can have a basket of freshly-baked baguettes delivered to their pitch before 9am. A local farmer also visits selling locally-grown fruit and veg. There's always a small stock of food in reception, plus beers, wines and ice creams. Once a week, the site host an authentic Indian feast for all campers. Uzerche boasts several excellent eateries including La Table de M (0033 5 55 98 17 80), Hôtel Joyet de Maubec (0033 5 55 97 20 60), Brasserie Vézère (0033 6 51 64 40 48).

Simply wonderful

We stayed here for a few nights to break up our journey further south, but my word what an unexpected treat it was. We stayed in one of the pre-pitched bell tents, fully furnished and with a small outdoor kitchenette. It was all immaculate and so nice not to have to unload the car with camping supplies for once. We spent some time on the small lake (or very large pond?), but mostly we wondered through the trees down to the stream where we were able to spend hours by ourselves in a shade-dappled spot paddling in the clear water. It was incredible and I treasure the memories and photos so much - we will return again and stay for longer! We had such a lovely time that we completely failed to even leave the campsite, so there is much still to explore in the region!

Peaceful location with super-friendly hosts

What a find ... so peaceful, close to Uzerche, super-friendly hosts, lots to do, clean facilities, laid back and fun all at the same time. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

An enchanting Place!

A wonderful campingsite in a beautiful landscape with a lot of little things to discover, great for children.

Nature heaven

What an incredible place! We spent a heavenly few days here at the very start of the season, and it was everything we had been hoping for. Perfect for nature lovers, all the woodland walks surrounded by birds and insects and the sounds of the running river, so peaceful. The horses and goats were adorable and hilarious and great fun to visit, and the lake was great for a sunny paddle in the canoe. We haven't been able to relax so much in ages. Thank you Sharon and Steve, your place is wonderful and you are such friendly and helpful hosts. We really hope to return!

The best place EVER

We stayed with a Sharon and her family in August 2020 in the middle of a pandemic and it was the perfect medicine to try and forget everything that was going on in the world. It was the most beautiful eco campsite with hosts that made us feel like we were visiting friends (they even tumble dried our underwear as we arrived at the site after 5 days of wild camping!) Our children roamed Wild and free, which isn’t something that comes easily to me but it felt so safe there, we only saw them when they wanted left overs for the pigs! They loved exploring the forests rivers and animals and cried when we had to drive away. We asked our 5 year old daughter the favourite bit of the campsite when we left and she said ‘Sharon’, nothing was too much for them. I cannot recommend this place enough from the warm bread delivery (to your pitch) every morning to walking goats on a lead and building a raft to float lanterns on the lake it was so much more than we’ve ever experienced during a camping trip before and we cannot wait to go back. If you do one thing today- book this site- you won’t regret it!

Fun, family campsite

We loved this campsite, loads for the kids to do, loads of space for them to safely venture, they loved the animals, great area with lots to do.

Beautiful site to come home to at the end of a day in a beautiful area

This site is a real gem, and exactly what we look for when searching sites on Cool Camping. We look for a reduced number of plots, which keeps things nice and quiet, and a beautiful location. It is only a small site but it is big on what it has to offer families. Don't look for noisy kids activities, you'll only find activities that kids will want to do by themselves. At the site there are animals for the kids to feed and stroke, there is a small safe river for them to paddle in, woods with a fairy garden for them to play in, a small lake for them to swim, canoe and even fish in! The hosts are very friendly and are always there if you need them. The facilities, washing up and bathrooms were always clean so no gripes on that one. Reception offers a few essentials if you are stuck and you can order your bread for the morning. We've had a lovely holiday this year in Correze which was made even better by staying at Moulin de la Geneste! Thank you Sharon and Steve.

A beautiful serene and private campsite for anyone

As a non contributor to reviews I feel compelled to highlight the beauty of this campsite. The hosts are incredibly relaxed making you feel welcome the moment you arrive and created a help yourself facility based on trust. The pitches are beautifully private and serene. The campsite itself has a lovely small collection of farm animals and a quiet atmospheric lake where you can grab a canoe or a boat when you like. The whole site feels like it’s your own throughout as it is so well spaced and the greenery is encouraged rather than cut back to allow more pitches. Just a wonderful experience that personifies camping from start to finish,

Idylle in wunderbarer Umgebung

We spent one night with our 4 children and dog on this wonderful place. The journey alone led through attractive villages and was still easily accessible from the highway. Actually, we did not want to stay long, but our children could not move away from the lake with the boats and the small meandering streams. Subsequently, the ponies and pot-bellied pigs had to be caressed extensively. At night it was quite cool and wet (early September). We would have liked to have stayed for the small flea market music festival held on the square, which the friendly British owners organize every year around this time and for which the place has already been lovingly designed. We are glad,

So lovely we are already thinking about our next trip to this campsite

We have camped at this site a few times now and it really is the loveliest campsite. Our 10 year old declared it the best campsite in the world! It is a small, peaceful, friendly site in a beautiful setting. You can spend peaceful days on the site, swimming in the lake, picnicking by and paddling in the cool stream, playing in the woods, playing badminton and pingpong, fishing etc There are beautiful lakes in the area for swimming and water sports (Treignac is especially nice). There are pretty towns and villages to explore and the weekly market at Uzerche is fun. The owners (Sharon, Steve and Harvey) are very welcoming. They are unobtrusive and rules are minimal but they are there if you need anything. Bread and pastries delivered to your pitch in the morning is a lovely treat. We camped and our pitch was flat, spacious and shady (but there are sunnier [itches if you want one). They also have cabins, a gypsy wagon and bell tents for glamping options. They plan to renovate one of the shower blocks this winter and this would be a welcome improvement. The only problem with this site is that your next campsite might feel a bit of a disappointment in comparison! We had only planned to stay two nights but decided to our stay at the next campsite short so we could go back for longer. My boys (10 and 12 years old) had the most lovely time there - very swallows and amazons! As we drove away they were asking when we could go back, and I am wondering the same!

Excellent campsite

There is something for everyone from basic tent pitch to full mobile home through tepee and chalet. There is a limited number of spaces and most of the campsite has been left open for kids (and grown ups) to roam with a lake to swim a nice little stream to cool your feet on hot days, animals to see (including 2 cute pony), space to play badminton, football, basketball (!), table tennis, petanque, etc... Loads of shade all over so even on the hot summer days we had, it always feel nice and bearable. Owner are British and well integrated locally, fully bilingual, nice and very knowledgeable and if you forgot something there is a little shop whose prices don't make you feel like they're trying to rip a limb off you. Overall one of the top campsite I have ever been too! The area has a lot to offer as well and is completely underrated!

Welcoming is the word for this site and its owners.

Lovely natural site, very safe for the children to wander and play. Our 8-year old grandson had a whale of a time stand-up-paddling one of the boats on the lake. Luxury to have croissants and fresh bread brought to our pitch each morning! Sad we didn’t have time to explore Uzerche - next time!

A really wonderful site in a beautiful area of France

We spent ten days at Moulin de la Geneste in early August 2018. Owners Sharon and Steve could not have been more welcoming and the site itself was wonderful - large pitches set in beautiful woodland where our children (7 & 9) could really play and explore. There is a swimming / fishing lake on the site as well as a range of different farm animals (ponies, pigs, chickens, goats etc) that our children loved feeding. The site also has a link-up with a local stables that for around £50 provided two donkey's for us to take out unaccompanied for a half a day - which was great fun. On Wednesdays, Sharon and Steve organised a communal meal in a large open air dining area on the site with lovely food - and a great opportunity to meet other people staying on the site from all over Europe. Nearby (15-20 mins drive) there are a range of well-maintained swimming lakes that have their own life-guards. There are also some really beautiful and interesting towns in the area - including Uzerche, which is well worth exploring. In summary - we had a wonderful time and did not want to leave. We would not hesitate to recommend the site to others and look forward to going back next year.

Stunning campsite

We've actually being staying here every summer for the last 6 years. We truly love this place and although we do camp elsewhere we always base the holiday around at least a week here...a week is never enough though. As it's my husband's 40th this year, we decided to splash out and instead of bringing our tent, we hired one of the bell tents. It was amazing. The bed is so comfy and the bedding provided is lovely. The decking an kitchen area is so well made by Steve and everything is provided for you, including proper wine glasses! So much nicer than drinking wine from a plastic cup like we usually do. The campsite is the most relaxing campsite I've ever stayed at and although there's loads of places to visit in the surrounding areas, we chose to spend most of the time hanging around the campsite, letting the kids run round, making friends and getting dirty. Also the curry night is not to be missed. Where else can you get a 3 course meal including wine for 20 euros?! All home made by Sharron and it's the tastiest curry ever! We also had a look around the new gypsy caravan that Steve made this year. The workmanship that has gone into this is stunning and well worth a stop in if you're on your own or a couple. I've definitely got my eye on it for when the kids stop coming on holiday! In a nutshell, the most relaxing, friendly, beautiful and well ran campsite in my opinion.

Stunning Scenery, impeccably clean, friendly and welcoming owners

I visited Moulin de la Geneste for just under a week, and quite frankly, I didn’t want to leave! Everything in the campsite was perfect, from the spectacular views, cleanliness, and of course Steve, Sharron and Harvey who could not have done more to help. The campsite is also situated near some beautiful spots to visit, so you have the peace and tranquility at Moulin, and if you want to visit the beautiful town of Uzerche it is a 10 minute drive. I was here by myself which was just bliss, however it would also be perfect for families and couples too. This campsite is a must visit!

Absolutely stunning

Wonderful campsite in a beautiful setting and made to feel so welcome by Steve, Sharron and Harvey. The kids loved exploring the hidden paths and woodland, and spending time with the animals, particularly the horses.We would recommend this campsite to anyone and we will definitely be back!

Above and Beyond

Arrived on 1 April, pretty much the start of the season. Campsite was deserted and we were plotting our route to go elsewhere, when Steve, the owner, arrived and invited us to stay, free of charge. They were so behind due to bad weather, they had not been able to get the site ship-shape and our arrival was unexpected. Steve offered to turn the boiler on, so we’d have hot water, so we accepted his kind hospitality. Steve and his wife then cleaned the toilet and shower block for us. What service! We had the entire campsite to ourselves. Bliss! There are 2 loos, 2 showers and 2 washrooms. They are modern and the showers have good hooks, shelves, towel rails. The site is rural, overlooks a fishing pond, there’s woodland surrounding. There’s rough paths around the site and across the river. They even have a small area with some goats, sheep, miniature horses. They have a few holiday homes, dotted throughout the site, if you don’t like camping. They say they get booked up over the summer - which doesn’t surprise me - especially families, as children would love the freedom this site allows. This a great location to tour the Dordogne. We loved it.

Fantastic Short Break

We stayed here last summer just outside of peak time in June. There was myself and my Husband, brother and sister in law, all under 30, our nieces, both under 10 and my mother in law, over 50. We stayed across 2 bell tents which were beautiful and comfy. The campsite is lovely and well set out, the shower blocks were clean and warm. We hired a car to get around and see some of the places near by which was great. The kids loved playing cards outside by candle light. Sharron, Steve and Harvey are great hosts for this wonderful campsite. I would highly recommend this if your in the area.

Wonderful place to escape

We stayed here last summer, and cannot recommend it highly enough. The site is set in a fabulous location to experience rural France yet is in close enough proximity to many great towns and villages to visit. The site is laid out brilliantly with plenty to keep the kids entertained and just enjoy being outdoors. It has a real multi cultural feel with my kids making new friends from 7 different countries! Being able to help with the animals is a real bonus for many youngsters and the hours spent in and on the lake have created memories that will last a lifetime. Sharron, Steve and Harvey are wonderful hosts and many of our fellow campers had become friends with them having returned several times over. This perfect gem of a place will not disappoint!

Hidden gem

My family and I like to visit this fabulous campsite at least once a year, my teenage daughter likes to sit on the jetty reading whilst her brother enjoys fishing on the lake. Some lovely walks and fantastic bakeries. We fly from Leeds direct to Limoges and hire a car which is really cheap. Book it , you certainly won’t be disappointed .
Feb 1, 2018 by Sarah hudson

Wonderful campsite

This is a perfect camping site for families. We stayed for 4 nights and could have stayed longer. Our daughters got to feed the resident animals and ride a donkey. There was a small lake with complimentary canoes. We received a daily delivery of fresh bakery. The grounds were rustic and homely, the site was really good value and to be honest it's one of the best sites we've ever stayed in. Would go back in an instant!

Best Campsite in the World. Fact.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here in July for a week, and I was absolutely blown away! It is in the most amazing part of France, far enough away from everywhere but near enough to be close to all the things you need! The campsite itself is in the most amazing spot ever, I wouldn't change a thing. The river at the bottom at the campsite is beautiful, and perfect for a paddle. The surroundings are incredible with loads of walks and things to find, like the fairy garden. The facilities are 10/10. Everything was simple, clean and well looked after and Sharon and Steve make you feel right at home. The weekly curry nights are a great get together and you feel like part of the family. Nothing was ever too much trouble. We certainly didn't want to leave at the end of our stay, and will planning for the next trip!

Nature, Sunshine, Owls!

We had an fabulous 10 days here in August camping with our kids aged 4 and 7. What a simply amazing find. Brilliant safe campsite if you have young kids. Ours loved the fairy garden, canoeing on the little lake and chasing the inquisitive kittens around! Steve Sharron and Harvey have created a wonderful place.. Generous pitches, great facilities and simple peace and quiet. Owls were calling every night, the tapping of nuthatches in the dawn was our alarm clock, a friendly hedgehog blundered into out table while we sat enjoying some local wine! There are plenty of nearby lakes for swimming and cooling off. A cold stream to paddle in on-site. Fresh bread and croissant deliveries to tent door every morning. Steve and Sharron also host a curry night once a week. It really is very friendly! It was a wonderful place to relax and let nature take over. We will be back!

Peace, nature, starry skies.

Thank you Sharon, Steve and Harvey for a fantastic week. We will be back. The site is very well appointed whilst retaining the magic of camping. The pitches are big and the site was peaceful. Our children loved the freedom of heading into the woods to explore. Steve and Sharon have carefully created lots of different areas to sit, barbecue, birdwatch, paddle, play, fish, read, canoe... Not to be missed.
Sep 3, 2016 by daniel woodhead

Top notch!

We enjoyed our stay here for a number of reasons; the lovely pitches and location, the friendly animals on site for the kids to entertain and the good facilities (showers were excellent). The highlight of the week was the green woodwork lesson from MIke, a local craftsman from the UK. The local area is stunning- Uzerche is beautiful- and it it so quiet. When we visited (mid August) things on the camp site and in the local area were already slowing down. Unfortunately, the curry night was cancelled (due to forecast rain that never came). We would recommend the site, especially as a stop on the way down or up...3 nights would be ideal.
Aug 22, 2016 by Jo Thrower


We stayed on this site for four nights, really in order to make our journey south a little less frantic and it ended up being one of our favourite sites. Steven and Sharron are very welcoming. On the first night of our stay there happened to be a communal curry night. Made from scratch by Sharron, it was a stunning curry with all of the trimmings homemade. Definitely not to be missed. The site is peaceful, tranquil, full of lovely areas to sit and stroll. The pitches are generous and well cared for. The shower block is beautifully clean and maintained. 

The surrounding area is full of things to see and do, without the press of tourists present further south. 

We will be back for sure! Thanks for the stay!

Magical is precisely the word!

I read the other reviews and had high hopes for this campsite and it did not disappoint! The owners are a genuinely lovely, down to Earth couple from West Yorkshire and they were so easy going and helpful, we really enjoyed chatting with them, and they went above and beyond to help us settle in after a very stressful journey from Dover to the Limousin (ferry delayed, traffic jams around paris). Tell site is just wonderful. So peaceful, quiet and picturesque. We had a magical evening enjoying a little BBQ next to lake, it was truly wonderful! The area is so pretty; rolling hills, beautiful little towns, sunshine, really rural and gorgeous. We found Uzerche to be utterly stunning, although very quiet. The stroll down to and along the river is lovely. We went out to explore the Limousin and had a particularly lovely walk at Lac du Valette, and also loved some of the 'most beautiful villages' in the area - well worth exploring! We will, without a doubt, return to this wonderful site; it is a convenient place for a stop on the way further south too.

Possibly my favourite place on earth...

I simply love this place.  As per the other reviewer, we too have visited this campsite for the past 3 consecutive years and quite possibly will again this summer.  Yes, there are other lovely campsites and areas to visit in the UK and France, but every one I visit I find comparing to La Geneste.  There's something magical about the atmosphere here.  Time slips away (as do our two boys who vanish into the woodland for hours on end!). There's no swimming pool, club house or bar, but it is all the better for it.  Fun is made for adults and kids by going for walks round the site, feeding the animals or messing around in and on the lake. The site is incredibly safe for children (albeit the lake is pretty deep, so best to keep an eye on non swimmers), and mine love the freedom they can have here having their own special adventures, usually with some other kiddies they've met along the way!  Everyone gets to know each other and the weekly curry nights enforce that.  The site is about a 10 minute drive from Uzerche, which is a beautiful small town and has lots going on throughout the summer. There is a lovely large municipal swimming pool just outside the town that was refurbished a couple of years ago which we always make a couple of visits to as well as some lovely lakes all within a few miles of the site.

The campsite suffers from no light pollution at all so has the most spectacular view of the stars at night.  Most evenings, we put the boys to bed in our tent, grabbed a bottle of red wine (and some other campers) and headed down to the barbecue area by the lake for the light show to begin.  For the last three years we have been blessed with meteor showers and usually got to see at least 10 shooting stars per evening.  

Sharron and Steve work tirelessly to make their campsite as friendly (not just from their welcome, but also the other campers on site) and as hospitable a place as it is possible to stay.  They go so far above and beyond just running their site as a business, but genuinely want their visitors to enjoy their time away from home as much as it is possible and for everyone to become friends - it really is a very special place.

a little patch of heaven

I cannot recommend this campsite enough. We have been coming here for 3 years now and we've just booked up for our 4th. We never intended on sticking with 1 campsite, always planned on trying as many different ones and different areas as possible, but we fell in love with "the fairy garden" as the kids call it. There is so much to do in the surrounding areas, we haven't even scratched the surface. We've spent many a day lazing around the campsite, boating on the lake, walking around the gorgeous grounds and feeding and watching the animals.  The area around the campsite is very tranquil, hills and woods as far as the eye can see. There are many swimming lakes near by, lots of quaint towns and the dordogne is a short drive away. The owners are so friendly and will do anything to make your stay better. We attended the curry evening last year which was amazing. The food was excellent and it was great getting together with other campers and some of the locals. We can't wait to go again this year!

The "coolest" camping we have been to

When we first parked the car at the entrance, we really felt confused...what kind of place ist this? The reception is a garden house...nobody was felt a bit dark...we were desperately in need of a nice holiday after a really har year of work...we have been to several "cool campings" before, and this one didn't seem to fit quite in the picture...

As we were searching for a pitch to put our tent at, the owner came towards us...and I remember how suddenly that strange feeling change and finally completely dissappeared disappeared ...within an hour we felt we were in a unique, magical surrounding.

It is such a great to describe it...very simple and yet full of details ...surprising "corners" ......nice People, not a "Glamping place" , not stilysh but beautifull...peacefull... genuine...often you dont even feel like you are in a camping place at all... a place where you feel free and cared for...The owners love what they do and make you feel at home. The kind of place that you think doesnt exist any more...Its cooler than the "Cool campings" we have been to...because its not "designed" is real...of course I would not be against a good espresso machine or mini-bar above the lake ...but here you realize that having a perfect holiday ist not about haven EVERYTHING...but about having the REALLY IMPORTANT things...The kind of place your children can never grow out of ...We made a course in green wood work with a lovely guy (ex-fire man, definitely very nice!!!)...joined the very delicious curry-evening...if you happen to have friends that do not like camping (as we do) they can rent out one of the wooden-cabins which are really amazing... I love visiting new places, always new places... but here I dream of coming back again, year after year, with my daughter and her friends the age of 4, 5, 6 10 ,13... since it is the kind of place that children connect to at a very deep level...and they can enjoy in a new way as they grow older...THANK YOU for running this place the way you do!!! We definitely weill come back!

We went over there for a week-end in October to attend a gathering of green wood workers. The place is splendid, the owner lovely and welcoming. Nature around and inside the camp-site is brilliant.
Mobile-homes and chalets are 1st class comfort.
Camping area is lovely and surrounded by trees.
The facilities are brilliant and super clean.
If I had to resume it in one word...Paradise
Thanks for the amazing week-end

A piece of heaven!

Our family have now visited this site three times in the last four years and wouldn't dream of camping in France without staying here as part of our holiday.

We love this site. It's as quiet and relaxing or adventurous and fun as you want it to be depending on your mood. You can leave the site to explore the surrounding area or lose whole days in this beautiful campsite where nature is quite literally all around you. Our children who are now 7 and 5 find endless things to keep them happy that don't include games consoles or TV, though the WIFI helps if you need it.

The facilities are good and kept immaculately clean and the English family that run the site are friendly and helpful. There are unique touches all over the site which show great attention to detail, from the benches in just the place you'd like to sit and enjoy the view, to the homemade chessboards and fairy garden. Sharron's weekly curry nights are a fabulous social event where campers and locals all gather to chat under the marquee with wine and delicious food.

As the description very accurately says, we always stay longer than we mean to and leave, already looking forward to our next visit. The best campsite we have ever stayed on.
