Swimming on a sunny day

General

  • Set over 11 hectares in manicured grounds of a 19th-century château
  • A 35-minute drive from the Calais and Dunkirk channel crossings
  • Two pools, outdoor gym, pizza bar and cosy bar and restaurant

Peaceful, green and spectacularly scenic... Camping Château du Gandspette is a quiet countryside site set among the grounds of a 19th-century château, across 11 hectares of bloom-filled wooded parkland in the Caps et Marais d'Opale Natural Regional Park. The Calais and Dunkirk channel crossings are 35 minutes' drive away.

This park’s pleasant woodland setting makes for a pristinely peaceful stay: the site has spacious and landscaped pitches surrounded by mature trees, loads of green space and lots of blooms and hedges. Leisurewise, there are two outdoor pools (one heated), ping pong tables and tennis courts, as well as a multisports area and an outdoor gym; activities run in high season too.

Food is well sorted at the site’s well-appointed summer bar and restaurant, serving grilled meats and regional specialities such as Flemish carbonnade and potjevleesch, and at the snack bar for pizza and fries to eat in or take away. The bar and its viewsome terrace is where you can sink a drink or two (while watching major sports fixtures, if that’s your leisurely bent).

And if the scenery isn’t enough to rouse you from your slumber? Freshly baked bread is on sale every summer morn.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 05/15 and 09/15 (subject to weather conditions).

Video games are available between 1 July and 30 August.

The bakery is open every day from 8am to 9am from mid-May to mid-September.

The bar is open between 1pm and 11pm during high season, and from 6pm to 9pm the rest of the year.

    Some pitches have plastic inserts in the ground & if your levellers are plastic it kicks them out. It would have been helpful to be aware of this.

  • Liked: 

    The grounds are very well kept and it is a gorgeous place to stay. The facilities are clean and the two swimming pools are fantastic.

    The tent pitches were spacious with trees and hedges to offer privacy and shade and the lawn/grass was exemplary.

    Reception staff very friendly and accommodating.

    Disliked: 

    The food and service in the restaurant is below average and expensive. The bar/restaurant staff are not well trained and borderline rude.

    Wifi access is sold in data packages... This isn't 1999 anymore!

    We loved everything about this campsite. Beautiful site with lovely flowers and plants everywhere, very well maintained. Although it is really large it is carefully laid out so that you don't feel you are on a huge site - we camped in a non-electric tent pitch in a small field and it was perfect. Lovely swimming pools and plenty of other things to do. Excellent bar and restaurant, and a really great takeaway pizza truck just down the road when we arrived too late for dinner in the restaurant on our first night. Excellent local boulangerie and a supermarket just a few minutes down the road. Fantastic facilities; the showers, toilets and washing up sinks were all completely spotless and well thought out. Very helpful and kind staff. Excellent location just half an hour from the Calais eurotunnel terminal.

Directions


Local attractions

The region is well served by road, rail and sea connections, including services such as the Eurostar and several from major Channel maritime operators. Camping Château du Gandspette is 45 minutes’ drive from the Calais-Fréthun high-speed rail international station too, making one-hour journeys to London, 30-minute journeys to Lille and two-hour journeys to Brussels and Paris a cinch.

The site’s Caps et Marais d'Opale Natural Regional Park setting is tiptop for hikes and bike rides around the area, with the GR 128 hiking trail between Wissant in France to Gand in Belgium within easy reach. Horse riding, fishing and golf are available in Ruminghem and St Omer, and for kid-friendly days out, bowling, go-karting and theme parks such as Dennlys Parc at Dennebroeucq and Plopsaland de Panne in Belgium are all within an hour’s drive.

History buffs can take a trip to the Eperlecques Blockhouse, a kilometre from base, and the La Coupole bunker complex (aka the St Omer Dome) is less than 20 minutes’ drive away. Other war memorial sites and points of interest well worth a trip to include the Fortress of Mimoyecques, the 1939-1945 Museum at Ambleteuse, the Memorial Museum at Calais, the Atlantic Wall Museum in Audinghen and the Memorial Museum at Dunkirk.
