Detail information about this campsite

P.F.J. Raaphorst

"Camping park on historic ground on the outskirts of Edinburgh. A part of the sanitary facilities, the pub and restaurant are located in the characteristic old stables. A cosy set-up. Great starting point for a visit to Edinburgh. The bus stops at the campsite."

Scorrettamente ci hanno cancellato la prenotazione dopo alcuni giorni. A distanza di un mese non hanno reso il dovuto. Difficile contattare il responsabile. Via mail non sempre rispondono e quando lo fanno temporeggiano. È un comportamento inaccettabile.

Camping proche de Edimbourg mais plus cher que annoncé sur le site.
Personnel pourrait être plus accueillant

Vriendelijk personeel op een perfect gelegen plek om Edinburgh te bezoeken. De sanitair is prima verzorgd, echter wel een beetje krap. Goed onderhouden groen en een schone camping.
Er is ook een busverbinding even buiten de camping. Het restaurant/bar bood heerlijke maaltijden in de oude stallen. Ook hier erg vriendelijk personeel. Je voelt je echt een gast.

Grote glooiende camping. Ook verharde plaatsen, maar niet recht. Slechte toegangsweg. Bus naar Edinburgh aan enide toegangsweg. Ca. 40 min naar stadcentrum. Bezoek de moeite waard, ook schip Brittania per bus bereikbaar (ca 60 min).

Wij hebben een reservatie gemaakt tent met elektriciteit, bij onze aankomst was het maar alleen de tent. Het sanitair was heel vuil en verstopt, je stond met je voeten in vuil water. De plaats van onze tent was hellend en een verharde weg; als het regende was het een modderveld, heel erg vuil.
Camping is maar één ster waard.

Prima camping voor bezoek aan Edingburgh en omgeving. Er is een goede busverbinding met het centrum, die zich net buiten de camping bevindt. In hoogseizoen is de plek echter te klein. De caravan wordt op een verhard stuk geplaatst, maar het opzetten van een voortent/ luifel is niet mogelijk. Wij hebben zelfs onze stoelen opgeruimd omdat echt buiten zitten op een gegeven moment niet echt meer mogelijk was zonder bij de buren op schoot te zitten. We waren compleet ingebouwd. Het deed mij denken aan de campings van vroeger in Spanje in Italië vóór de tijd van genummerde plekken.
Sanitair is goed. Toen wij er waren was er een snackvan op de camping waar je een echt Engels ontbijt kon kopen. Voor de liefhebbers! Worstjes, spek, black pudding gebakken eieren etcetera.
We hebben 1 keer gegeten in het restaurant. Er was een goede sfeer en het eten was redelijk. Vanuit de camping kan er een wandelingetje worden gemaakt. Toch een aanrader als je de stad Edingburgh wil bezoeken.
