Cosy and carefree

The campsite grounds immediately give a welcoming and carefree impression. There are a significant number of trees in all sorts of varieties. They provide shade and give the grounds its pleasant and green ambiance. In some parts, you can even imagine being in the forest. The owners bid you a warm welcome at the reception. What's unique is that from the campsite grounds, you have a wonderful view of a hill with an old castle ruin.

Lovely greenery, fine sanitary facilities

The camping pitches are located on grassy fields along partly paved pathways and are marked by hedges and trees. The hedges provide privacy, the trees offer shade. Non-camping guests can rent a bungalow at the campsite or even rent a room in an old Spanish villa. The sanitary facilities at the campsite are fine.

Welcoming restaurant

The facilities for children are limited, but there is a welcoming restaurant at the campsite where you can enjoy a bite to eat. The speciality here is lamb, prepared in a wood-fired oven according to an age-old recipe.

Pilgrim trail

The campsite guests are a diverse international group of camping enthusiasts. In the peak season, you will find many families with children here. You will also meet pilgrims who are on their way to Santiago de Compostela.

We were welcomed at this small campsite and were able to chose our own pitch. All are marked and have hedging and trees. Great view of the castle from the site. The town is a few minutes walk away and has several restaurants and a few shops. We ate at the campsite two nights, firstly for the slow roast lamb and then the paella. The owners are very hands on, approachable and knowledgeable about the area. The toilet facilities could do with a bit of an upgrade but apart from that this site is highly recommended.

This small site had lovely flat pitches, with plenty of room and privacy. The facilities were very good with plenty of hot water and good laundry facilities. The small restaurant was an added bonus with a friendly informal atmosphere and excellent value for money. The lamb was very good and the Wagyu beef was excellent as was the wine. The owners were very friendly and helpful at all times. There was easy access for walking around the town and up to the castle. In the river valley beyond we saw several pairs of Marsh harriers. Well worth a visit to this spot.

This is a delightful rural site in a very old village overlooked by a n ancient castle. It is quiet and peaceful yet offers all we needed. The family who run the site will do all they can to make your stay a pleasant experience & I can wholeheartedly recommend the lamb roasted in the outside oven. Would happily return here.

A small family run site in a quiet location alongside the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route. Owners were keen to help. Son spoke English, father not but he was very keen on wildlife and offered trips out in 4 wheel drive to see local birdlife- he went out of his way when on his way to an appointment, seeing us emerging from a track after searching for bee eaters. He got us to follow him to correct place, then went on his way.
Pitches were well shaded with room for caravan and awning. Although showers were push button type the water was hot and adequate. Washing machines worked well.
Other English on site had returned after previous visits and we intend to return too.

Very nice welcome from the young man whose father owns the site. This is a nice quiet site at the edge of a village which is one of the main stopover points for the Camino. Lots of bird life in the area.
Pitches are just about adequate, a bit tight for us in our largish tent, but plenty big enough for a caravan and car.Sanitary block was clean.
We had a meal in the restaurant which was nice but not spectacular.

Very small campsite which our satnav could not locate but it is clearly signposted along the main road. Set in a small village which is quite barron. There is an old castle at the top of a mountain and the view of this from the campsite is quite nice. However there is very little else there. The pitches were perfext and either shaded or non shaded with plenty of space. The toilet facilities were very old fashioned as has been mentioned, but the main issue for us was the showers which were quite frankly unusable. They work by having constant cold water running and having to push the hot water valve every few seconds. The man who runs the campsite is friendly but very laid back which sometimes came across as rude. There is free wifi at reception only but the reception doubles as a bar/restaurant with a small shop and is very pleasant to sit in. Lots of different types of birds to observe from the pitches.

This site is all about the location. castrojeriz is on the camino way and the pilgrims walk past the site entrance. The short walk into the town is through the old streets and leads to a small area well served by bars and restaurants. There is only one very small supermacardo shop in the town and the nearest big shop is on the out skirts of Burgos. The camp site is small and friendly. The small pitches have some with shade. the toilet facilities are old style and rather well worn but they are cleaned daily. There are washing machines and dryers. The bar area is well used and fresh bread can be bought every day. The highlight of our stay was walking one stage of the camino way through the beautiful countryside.

We visited this campsite in the last year and comeback in present year for more two times. One in the middle of June an the other in the last day of the same month.

Small camping very quiet with nice staff. Small pitches but in good condition. Very good for stopover or to relax for some days.
