General

  • Friendly English-owned site close to the D-Day landing beaches
  • Within 15 minutes' drive of Carentan and 45 of Bayeux and Cherbourg
  • Rural setting in the Cotentin and Bessin Marshes Regional Nature Park

English owned and within easy reach of D-Day landing beaches: come to Camping Le Clos Castel for a quick break from Blighty, or base yourself here for a full French hol.

Brit owners Carol and Clint know what's what: as keen campers themselves they've set the site up to include spotless amenities and plenty of space, and make it their mission to provide a warm and friendly atmosphere where everyone is made welcome. Have a chat to them around the site to find out top tips on what to see and do nearby, from investigating local markets and hikes to day trips to the D-day beaches and the likes of Bayeux and Caen.

Le Clos Castel is a short stroll (about 500 metres) from its local village Raids, in Lower Normandy's Manche department half an hour's drive from Utah beach and 35 minutes' drive from Omaha. It has a countryside setting in the Cotentin and Bessin Marshes Regional Nature Park: once you've thoroughly investigated Normandy beaches on day trips, set off into the park for days of hiking, nature spotting and boat rides.

The site has wifi, showers, toilets and a washing-up area available for guests' use.

Good transit campsite with small number of pitches08/10/2019

Reviewer's country: United KingdomLuciano S.Confirmed

  • Electric gravel touring pitch (large)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Inexpensive no frills campsite with 5 amp electricity.
    Very close to the ww2 d day landing sites and war cemeteries.
    Very close, approximately 45mins to one hour, from Cherboug port.
    Shopping amenities nearby for food and fuel.
    A good layover campsite whilst en route.

    Disliked: 

    No water supply nor grey water waste provision to the pitch, but at the cost per night this is entirely understandable.

  • Non-electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Lovely quiet site, quite small so never going to be over crowded and noisy. Great shower/washroom facilities ( always clean and plenty of hot water and good water pressure on the showers) . Water tap, washing up sink again with plenty of hot water and electric hook ups both french and universal. Hard standing and grass area on each pitch so great for vans or tents and car parking. Site is just off road between too largish towns with restaurants, shops, supermarkets and petrol station and in great location for D-Day beaches and bayeux and some lovely beaches not too far away either.

Directions


Local attractions

Ask Carol and Clint for info on their best picks on activities and attractions nearby: the outdoor adventures of the Cotentin and Bessin Marshes Regional Nature Park are close to hand and it's about 15 minutes' drive from the site to the beaches overlooking Jersey.

Also within 15 minutes' drive is Carentan, surrounded by wetlands and wildlife-laden marshes, but probably most famed as the scene of the Battle of Carentan in World War II (the town is between Utah and Omaha beaches). The area surrounding Carentan has several remembrance museums including the Musée Airborne at Saint-Mère-Église (25 minutes' drive) and the Normandy Tanks Museum in Catz, 20 minutes from the site.

For day trips, Bayeux and Cherbourg are each 45 minutes' drive away, and Caen is an hour and five minutes; further afield, Mont Saint-Michel is within an hour and a half.
