Manzac Ferme campsite

Site options

Manzac Ferme is a small and peaceful ‘CL’ style caravan, motorhome and camping site catering exclusively to grown ups, set in six acres of beautiful wooded countryside. Manzac is designed for our guests to soak up the tranquillity and peace of this special place.

We are pleased to be able to offer our guests two types of pitch, all of which come with power.

For those of you under canvas we offer the choice of one of our four beautiful grassy woodland pitches, stunningly located under broadleaf trees on the banks of the quiet river Bandiat, offering varying degrees of shade. These have a separate car parking area, and we will help you with getting your gear from car to tent. Read more about those here. If you prefer to camp with your car, you may prefer one of our upper pitches, as described below.

We also offer six "hard standing" pitches, which are large and spacious, with enough room to accommodate a caravan with awning or a large tent, as well as a vehicle. Read more about those here.

Manzac Ferme campsite

The area to the north of the campsite and down to the ‘category 1’ River Bandiat is our own and has had the very old, unmanaged conifer plantation removed and a selection of broadleaf trees has been planted. This is a reforestation project in conjunction with the local forestry alliance, which will encourage the local wildlife, as well as many types of edible fungi to grow. Our visitors are welcome to wander through this area.

Our facilities

The showers and toilets have been frequently described as “the best we have ever seen or used”. They are built in an insulated unit, next to our wash up and information area. The showers are thermostatically controlled and the hot water supply is not metered.

The toilets are UK style low flush items and the whole building is automatically ventilated as well as being heated during the cooler months of the year.

We also have laundry facilities available for a small fee, plus we offer grey and black water dump point facilities into our on site septic tank system. Note that as this is into a "fosse eau", or septic tank, we can only accept bio-degradeable toilet chemicals, such as the Blue Bio, Thetford Green etc. There are several suitable products on the market. A dump point for non septic tank friendly chemical based toilets can be found in Nontron (7km away).

Our inclusive charges make allowance for 6 amp power supply via euro style plugs with each point having its own overload circuit breaker.

The electricity was installed and is monitored by a qualified electrician and we have gone to great lengths to ensure the polarity of the supply is correct for UK built caravans/motorhomes - however you will need a Euro adaptor. A standard 25mtr. extension cable is more than adequate for all of our sites.

For safety and general ambience reasons there are low level lights on top of the power supply boxes that cast a gentle light over the pitch area of the site, there are also further fully automated lights on the rear walls of the Ferme.

Below the six hard standing sites, by our woodland camping area, gently moves the serene ‘category 1’ River Bandiat, on which we have in excess of 200 mtrs. of river bank. For those wishing to fish, there are bream, roach, carp, trout, gudgeon and pike.

We also welcome well behaved and controlled pets onto the site.

Gas fired barbeques for outdoor cooking are welcomed. As we are in a densely wooded area charcoal barbeques are forbidden by law for your own safety.

CHARGES: The inclusive pitch charge of €25 per night allows for a single unit (caravan or tent) with 2 occupants and includes tourist tax. This charge covers 6 amp electrics, showers, wi-fi, local taxes, awning etc. There is a €9 charge per additional adult, to a maximum of 4 per site.
