General

  • Peaceful site in the grounds of a working farm 3km from Bailleul
  • 20 minutes' drive from Ypres and In Flanders Fields Museum
  • Farm shop on site with an wide range of homegrown and local produce

If you want a full flavour of French cuisine (oui), you'll find it here in French Flanders.

The shop at Camping de la Ferme des Saules, in the grounds of a working farm in the Flanders mountains, is piled with all sorts of fruit and veg fresh from the fields for you to sample, as well as a range of tiptop produce from other local suppliers including fresh meat, pâtés, cheese, eggs, sweets and homemade Flemish waffles. Pick up some local fruit juices and beers to wash it all down and you’ve got everything you need for quite the French feast.

Ferme des Saules is a family-friendly site, half a kilometre from the Belgian border and 20 minutes' drive from Ypres. Guests are welcome to wander the farm during opening hours to meet the chickens, goats and pony, or you could work your appetite up further with a pre-dinner game of pétanque while the kids bounce around the playground or trampoline.

Spacious grass pitches are within easy reach of a smart modern toilet block that houses toilets, showers, a kids’ bathroom and an accessible bathroom. There’s also free wifi access around the site.

Ferme des Saules is a few kilometres from Bailleul for yet more foodie options at its restaurants, bistros, bars and speciality shops: you can reach town within a five-minute drive, a 15-minute cycle or a 45-minute walk, depending on how many calories you need to work off...

A beautiful quiet campsite on a working farm 15/07/2018

    The site was peaceful and beautiful. We arrived on Sunday afternoon from Calais. It’s on a working farm and we were pitched alongside a miniature pony, 2 goats and lots and lots of chickens. We were also given very warm welcome by shadow (the farm collie).

    Fantastic site with a safe and manageable bike ride to the Menin Gate, the on site shop is top class with the best fruit and veg we’ve tasted in a long time. The facilities were spotless at all times and very modern, we will be very happy to return.

    Very friendly welcome. Our first time camping in France for many years so inevitably didn’t have an appropriate connector for the electricity which the site were happy to loan us.
    Clean facilities although communal toilet roll, while usual, is always a bit odd. Take your own!
    Lovely looking produce in the farm shop, although perhaps a little pricey if you just want daily provisions. Still, you definitely get what you pay for. Shop closed on Tuesdays because it is market day in nearby Bailleul.
    Site is very peaceful although as it is a working farm, you will occasionally hear farm machinery. Ideally located for a trip to Ypres and a little further afield, Bruges.
    Great value for money, especially as WiFi included.

Directions


Local attractions

At Bailleul, start in the flower-filled Grand’Place, dominated by the 62-metre belfry tower of the town hall, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Climb to the top for spectacular views towards the mountains and to get up close to the 35-bell carillon.

Around the corner from the square is the Museum of Benoit-De-Puydt, a converted private house where you can learn a bit about the town’s role during the war and visit the exhibition of Flemish art. Also worth a visit is the Country Life Museum in Steenwerck, a 15-minute drive from the site and set up to recreate a Flemish village in 1900.

The major Belgian point of interest close by is Ypres, 20 minutes' drive from the site, where you can tour the battlefields, visit the war cemeteries and learn more about the area's historical significance at the In Flanders Fields Museum.
