    It’s a monster holiday park but in a good sense, the site is well mapped out so you shouldn’t get lost. Cycling is very popular in the local area, the routes are safe and scenic – Wassenaar is lovely, nice shops and friendly locals, easily reached by bike. You’ve got everything onsite a supermarket and restaurants plus included in our stay was free use of the themepark, it’s not full of white knuckle rides and is very family focused, the kids loved it and so did we.
    Food onsite is nothing amazing but lots of top class outlets in the surrounding area if you fancy treating the family.

    We drove from Calais which went smoother than I thought it would. We will most certainly return to Duinrell.
