SITE 111 - Vakantiepark Witterzomer


This is by far the biggest site we have stayed on with 500 touring pitches, 200 Statis/seasonal pitches as well as holiday houses and wooden chalet accommodation all on some 75 hectares yet strangely one of the most comfortable and intimate as the whole site is divided into small areas, some holding a dozen or more vans some holding just one or two. We came here a couple of years ago and had a fully serviced pitch with its own bathroom, it was during the ACSI invalid period and Dirkje was travelling with us and although I can’t remember the cost it was not exorbitant. This visit was within ACSI validity so no private bathroom but a pitch in a little area surrounded by trees so we could have been on a CL on our own but for the facilities block, unseen from our pitch but just a few yards away.

The Dutch word vakantiepark translates as holiday park and that is exactly what Vakantiepark Witterzomer is there is so much on site with various children’s play areas, bike hire, swimming pool with assorts of water slides etc, a lake etc., etc., that you could spend a holiday here without leaving the site.

The toilet and shower facilities are plentiful and spotlessly clean, there is a reasonably priced laundry, a well stocked shop with fresh bread, rolls and croissants each morning, and a restaurant/bar that although we didn’t use was obviously popular.

There is reasonably priced WiFi available throughout the site.

The reception staff all spoke perfect English (as do the majority of Dutch people) and were friendly and helpful. There is a good sized supermarket less than a couple of kilometres away together with a BBQ butcher and cash point and in the other direction the bustling town of Assen with more shops bars restaurants etc than you could shake a stick at.
