We love the Dutch people and this Year, instead of heading South to the Mediterranean or Adriatic we went to Holland, the first time since our honeymoon 35 years ago.
So with our car and caravan we headed to Wassenaar a small town in the South West just North of Dan Haag and to the Duinrell Holiday Park.
Duinrell Holiday Park is a large wonderful park set on the edge of the beautiful town of Wassenaar that also has a Theme Park with enough to keep any family busy and also a massive pool complex, the indoor waterpark is chargeable, but the outdoor pool and the theme park is free for people staying at Duinrell.
The Dutch are, in my opinion, one of the friendliest people in the whole of Europe, young or older, they are very nice people.
However, Duinrell Holday park has lots of static holiday home your can rent or, like us, there are 15 areas for Tents, Caravans and Motorhomes.
We booked Romantisch Kamp, classed as Sunny with Electric and Water, NOT true.
our pitch number 100, we had electric, we could not connect to mains water as it is shared.
All the pitches in our area were surrounded by trees and very high edges.
I noticed our pitch would be blocking 2 motorhomes behind us, Not to mention the narrow access road and low hanging tree branches made access very difficult.
If you have a caravan or motorhome over 7m in length I would be very careful, our Caravan was 8m and our car 5m combined length was 13m
The whole camping area/s need a manager who understands camping and a better strategy around pitch size, access and waste disposal distances.
In my view, Tents should have dedicated areas, pitches should be identified for Caravans and Motorhomes over 7m taking in to count pitch size and ease of access/exit
If they are providing Water on pitch, then it should be dedicated to the pitch so we can plug in our mains water connection to our Caravan/Motorhome. By the way, the water taps on the pitches are useless, you can’t connect to them, they are stupid “bath” taps, not the screw type.
