Lovely staff, particularly helpful young lady came to sort out our pitching difficulties. We were directed to a choice of 3 pitches, non of which were in fact available, then unable to access other suggestions.
The difficulty was caused by people departing late or pitching on own choice of pitch. The reports about some long pitches are no longer true as they have been divided in half - front and back of pitch so everyone understandably takes the outer pitch in case they get blocked in. The system just does not work unless rear pitches are kept for tents and not allocated to caravans or motorhomes.
However a lovely site once pitching was achieved, immaculate toilets, pool looked good but they seem to enforce a swimming cap rule so we were unable to use it.
Menu looked good in restaurant and we had good reports of it but we had food to use up before ferry so did not use it - Next time maybe
Schön angelegter Platz. Sanitäranlagen nicht ganz modern,aber sauber und genug warmes Wasser. Recht gutes Internet. . . .freundliches Personal. Gut zum Wandern.
Arrived tonight on Santander ferry. Easy drive, although in pouring rain. One hour drive from ferry, mainly motorway..Excellent reception, restaurant open, excellent meal, €10 for 3 courses with wine. Toilets and showers immaculate.
Excellent campsite under an hours drive from Santander ferry. Good food in restaurant. Menu of the day €10 for 3 courses and a bottle of wine.
Showers and toilets spotless. We have a large Motorhome and we were allowed to park on path as grass was very wet.
Excellent campsite, no problem with entrance, just drove through slowly. Super restaurant, €10 for 3 courses and wine. Showers wonderful.
Would definitely return. As it was wet we were allowed to park on Tarmac.
Although a narrow gate on entering this great little site offers a friendly reception with some English spoken. Some long pitches allow you to stay coupled which is great for towing a car trailer or even a caravan. Small restaurant offers good quality food and a friendly face. Reception staff allowed us to stay past the normal check out time as our ferry was much later in the evening. In all worth the drive out to this site if your intention is to drive on through Spain the following day or waiting for the ferries to travel home.
Nice site with friendly helpful staff. Toilet block a bit old fashioned but has a bio award & is spotlessly clean. Some pitches large enough to leave the car & caravan hooked up. ideal for ferry ports but let site know in advance in case ferry delayedl
Surprisingly open late October. Very quiet with all seasonal caravans stored off pitch. A good walk to the coast but worth the effort on a fine day. Booked for one night but stayed three. Good stop-off for Santander ferry.

Nice little site set in woodland very close to pleasant villages. Too far to walk to coast, need car or scooter. Toilet block old fashioned but very clean with ample very hot water. Very tranquil in September but pool closed as per normal. Good for couple of days to relax or go off visiting the area and beaches.
