- Well-appointed holiday park in the grounds of a French manor
- Handy for Calais, Grand Site des Deux-Caps, theme parks and waterparks
- Two playgrounds, nine-hole miniature golf course and volleyball
If ever you’ve fallen foul of a delayed ferry or Eurotunnel train on your way through to Calais (a highly handy 20-minute drive away), you’ll know that an untimely site arrival can leave you somewhat scuppered.... But not with Château de la Bien-Assise, for its 24-hour barriers and flexible arrival times for booked guests mean that if you rock up even if the middle of the night, you’ll have a pitch to park up at no probs.
And while this place may well be super for a stopover on your way between England and France and wider Europe, it’s also splendidly set up as a family holiday destination, with well-appointed facilities aplenty and a setting among the Caps et Marais d'Opale Natural Regional Park: a land filled with all sorts to see and do, like day trips with wee ones to waterparks, treetop adventure parks and seaside resorts, to active pursuits such as horse riding, walking and cycling in Guînes forest.
Should you arrive on site in time for lunch or supper, a local French dish and a wine quaff at the site’s cosy restaurant is a good shout for starting your stay off here. However, if you’re instead much keener on checking out the facilities at your disposal, you might first want to get settled in and head for a dip in the heated pool with retractable roof: the kids certainly will, as it’s got a waterslide to entice the tiddlers, and you may decide to join too if the idea of a sun-drenched doze on the alongside solarium appeals.
For times of higher energy, a nine-hole miniature golf course and three outdoor ping pong tables (paddles and balls can be bought at the shop) await, or if you’re feeling even more spirited to stir yourself, also on site are tennis courts (extra charges apply) and a volleyball court, or an outdoor gym should you be feeling particularly croissant conscious.
For kids of all years, the park has two playgrounds – one for kids aged eight to 12 and another for smaller people aged three to seven. If instead indoors is where they’d prefer to be, then take you and them for a tipple and mingle with fellow guests over at the bar, where a pool table, a pinball machine and several arcade games are on hand to entertain all family members.
Ample amenities are on site too for extra comfy stays, as lots of showers and toilets – handily furnished with toilet paper and toilet seats to comfortably park one’s behind upon – should ensure the avoidance of morning loo queues.
Open from 30/03/2018 to 30/09/2018

Party: 2 adults
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together.

That it’s set between the sea and the countryside is the big advantage of this site’s setting: the beach resorts of Wimereux and Wissant are both within half an hour’s drive, plus within half an hour’s pootle you’ll happen across one of Europe’s largest aquariums at the town of Boulogne-sur-Mer.
If you’re one for setting yourself up for smashing vistas, then the Grand Site des Deux-Caps – a most spectacular protected coastal area comprising the Cap Blanc-Nez and Cap Gris-Nez and looking right out towards Dover’s white cliffs – is a speedy short drive away.
When kid-friendly day trips are calling, head to the family theme parks of Bagatelle or Dennlys for waterslide swooshing and miniature railway or monorail rides, or to the coastal waterpark of Aqualud for more than two kilometres of slides, tropical pools and wave machines, all easily within an hour’s drive.
