Rustic Charm

We stayed for 2 nights and the owners Laura & Med were happy to switch our booking at short notice to a woodland pitch after we found out how hot the weekend was going to be. The site is not huge which suits us and has nice little ‘meadows’ which take just a few tents each. The wood is nice and secluded even though you could see other campers and each pitch had it’s own fire pit. The toilets and showers are clean and well maintained plus keeping with the eco feel of the site with small bars of hand made soap and cut-up old towels for single use hand drying - great idea and beats having paper towels or hand dryers. The reception, wash up area and bathroom have a quaint, rustic and somewhat mediterranean feel and it is perfectly charming. Looking forward to going back

A lovely, pretty csmpsite

I really loved staying here. The bell tent was set up beautifully. The owners were lovely and the kids loved it that they cut some willow branches for them to toast marshmallows on the fire.

Star Gazing, Den Building & Smore Eating

The children loved playing in the woods & building their den, 'Zela'. Also enjoyed star gazing & they were very excited to discover the brightest 'star' was infact Jupiter. Making Smores on the camp fire. Lovely campsite with space for them to play. Facitilities are limited, but functional with a lovely little shower block full of character. Owners were very friendly & always happy to help.

Camp-fire and Bluebells

We camped for 2 nights in a small (which was not so small) secluded woodland pitch. We were surrounded by nature, a carpet of heavenly scented bluebells and trees. We had our own fire-pit, bought wood from the owners for a very reasonable price, and had a wonderful fire both nights, and cooked on it the second. Med and Laura are lovely people, friendly and accommodating. The facilities are basic, but adequate and very quirky. We loved it, our dog loved it, and if you like 'proper' camping, you will love it too!

Mooie, natuurlijke camping!

Welsummer is een mooie, natuurlijke camping. De campingplaatsen zijn ruim, de camping is sfeervol en met liefde voor de natuur aangelegd.
