After an almighty nightmare of a journey up we finally made it to the campsite - from this point onward we could not fault anything.
As we were not expecting to be spending much time at the site (we were following the Tour de France) we decided not to have electrics and just use our cycle touring tents.
We were shown to our pitch,which was large, the field was also large, but a lot of it was left open rather than cramming more tent in.
Thankfully the shop with its reasonable prices and wide stock had extended its opening times as we were out of gas. Likewise on the Saturday they re-opened the shop as the racing went on late.
Local knowledge was also freely given - good viewing points, way round road closures etc They gave us a special TdF mug and stocked the bar with Black sheep special Velo beer and live music for the Saturday night. The facilities were spotless despite the rain and extra pitches. We'll definitely be back all the staff were really helpful and enthusiastic.
