Family Holidays in Holland
Duinrell, Wassenaar, Holland
Stayed with Keycamp at Duinrell for a week in the beginning of September when the weather was lovely. Got the fast ferry over from Harwich to The Hook of Holland (3 1/2 hours) which was great although I have since heard that this service is going to be stopping shortly. Was easy enough to find the camp even with the sat nav not working. My children are 11 and 14 and they voted this the best holiday ever. Facilities are fantastic on site with the theme park and water park so saves us parents plenty of cash. Must hire out bikes or go carts, great fun.
Take a short walk into the village of Wassennar as there are plenty of places to eat. Turn left when you exit the camp site and Pancake House is just there and the food was lovely. Took our parents with us too (both in their 60’s) and they enjoyed the walks in the forest and to the Wassennaar beach (lovely). We only ventured out one day to Amsterdam to go to Anne Frank Museum and Dam Square, we drove and parked all day in the city centre for £14. I would highly recommend this camp site, it is great for families and we would love to go back next year.
First – getting there. Try and sail into hook of Holland or Europoort if bringing the car as the drive from Calais takes much longer than you expect and if you hit rush hour in Belgium or Holland you won’t like it! Once there, don’t bother with the on-site restaurants/bars or the supermarket as they are all overpriced and poor quality. The village of Wassenaar is five minutes walk away and has much better alternatives. It’s also an absolutely beautiful village and well worth a visit anyway. There is plenty to do on camp with the tiki pool and theme park and you must rent bikes and get out and about on the superb cycle paths. Off site – you are well placed to visit Amsterdam, Rotterdam and the Hague. We found driving to Leiden (10 mins) and getting the fast cheap trains the best bet. We got an excellent price on our holiday (stayed in a mobile home with key-camp, for British visitors you can also book with euro-camp, both of which are much cheaper than booking direct with duinrell), and wiil be returning in the next couple of years. also, a tip for you – teach your kids how to say please and thank you in Dutch…the local people seemed to love it and the kids kept getting free ice creams!!!
