What Clients Say
“Exceptionally peaceful, friendly site. This is our 4th visit to this campsite, and the English owners are extremely friendly and helpful with a ‘nothing is too much trouble’ attitude.”
“Me, my wife and my 14 year old daughter had an amazing stay at this little gem of a site. Super friendly owners who could not be more helpful. The site has everything you need for a relaxing break. We were only stopping for 4 nights but could have quite easily cancelled our next booking to stay longer. The swimming pool was perfect, the bar was great, the pizza’s fab, the pitches were huge and could easily have got 2 camper vans and awnings in them with space to spare but it was nice to just spread out in your own area. Fresh bread and pastries delivered to site 6 days a week, local boulangerie and shop in walking distance along with other services we didn’t need but knew were available if needed was most welcome.
We cannot wait to be able to get back next year with the rest of the family and spend even longer. Just don’t go here if you are expecting a Haven/Butlins/Centre Parcs type experience because it’s just a chillout, family friendly, laid back experience where they are not trying to suck the cash out of you at every opportunity. In summary a very honest campsite, that is not over commercialised, big on getting the basics right and perfect for the majority of people’s needs.”
“We stayed for a week in one of their Bell Tents. It was decked out with everything we needed. There was a BBQ and a shared outdoor kitchen that saved us buying stuff in order to cook. The location and the weather was perfect, and having a well maintained pool was a major plus. Everyone that we met at the campsite was warm and friendly too, which really added to the whole experience. I haven’t slept in a tent since Reading festival in 1995, so I was thinking I was going to rough it for a week. I was totally wrong – the facilities were spotless, showers warm, toilets all stocked with loo roll and access to hand sanitiser was available throughout the campsite. We had an amazing time. The kids had friends to play with, we had good company throughout the night and day. I can’t thank Henry and Kat enough. 2020 has been a rubbish year for everyone, and this holiday has brought back a bit of normality – if only for a week. But it was needed. So, thank you Camping du Bois de Saint Hilaire for bringing the Findlaters that silver lining, that we have craved. This place ticked every box. Till the next time, stay safe and keep it up!”
