Martyn and Louise warmly welcome you to Camping Le Vieux Moulin. Whether it’s only one night or a longer stay we are both committed to ensuring you have a memorable quality camping experience. For many years our annual camping trip to France was our only family holiday, so we know how important your holiday is to you.
What’s important to you is important to us
Please do not hesitate to contact us before, during or after your holiday to discuss any aspect of your stay.
The site is spread over 4 hectares/12 acres providing plenty of space and privacy for everyone.
The site benefits from a 10 x 5 m swimming pool to cool off in on those hot summer days with plenty of room to sun bathe and relax in the warmth of the sun.
The currently two sanitary blocks on the site. Each one will be renovated and fitted out with new modern showers, washbasins and washing up facilities. The first block will be completed in 2017 and the second sometime in the future when there is demand for a second block to be opened. For this reason we have decided to only open 50% of the emplacements.
We want all our guests to enjoy our beautiful site, with this is mind all renovations to the site will consider accessibility and inclusiveness.
Camping Le Vieux Moulin is currently serviced by a flat compacted stone road which runs around the entire site. A new modern dedicated accessible toilet and wet room will be installed in the main sanitary block. It will be equipped with a fold down seat, grab rails, low pan and basins, emergency cord etc.
If you have any special requirement or wish to discuss any aspect of your stay please do not hesitate to contact us.
The majority of the trees were planted when the site was established in 1968, many of which were sourced from nursery stock, evident from the variety of native and ornamental trees. Over the last year we have been implementing a programme of tree management including crown lifting, removal of diseased and dangerous trees, and limb reduction. We have replaced the trees we have removed with new ornamental varieties which will add colour and interest along with food and shelter for the many birds.
The whole site is teaming with wildlife in the form of small mammals, insects and birds. We have at least three resident red squirrels; they are very elusive and spend much of their time in the tree canopy.
When the sun goes down you may be lucky to spot some bats flying about catching flies, they are perfectly harmless and fascinating to watch. We are yet to identify all the birds but my favourite is the woodpecker with his emerald green plumage.
We challenge you to get a better photograph of our camera shy residents. Yes!, this is the best one we have taken so far.
We have ambitious plans to modernise the facilities whilst retaining the rural charm which we fell in love with the first time we visited the site. We have already installed new 16amp electrical hook-ups, site lights and fresh drinking water facilities across the site. The facilities in sanitary block one have been updated with a new modern hot water system, washing facilities, showers and washing up sinks.
The site will be equipped with a new children’s play ground, new pétanque boulodrome and activity area. We intend to demarcate the site with new communal spaces for those quiet moments; communal barbecues and eating spaces, clearly set out dog-free areas and a secure paddock to exercise your all-important four legged friend.
Longer term plans include building a new information centre which will include reception, shop and cafe. Offering a warm friendly space for our guests to relax and do nothing or a place they can plan their day. We would also like to develop the river frontage to provide a safe environment to enjoy the river and its wildlife.
