Such a gem of a find! We stayed two nights in this gorgeous quiet place with great facilities. A short bike ride to Route 72 Cafe & Emporium where we found friendly staff, outstanding food and coffee, and a treasure trove of clothes, art, and gifts. Would absolutely stay here again. Thank you, people of Cust. It's been a real pleasure. Definitely a 10/10!

Thank you Cust. A very quiet spot for the night. Clean toilet and water and sink are great. A wonderful Curio shop with everything, quality things, and a cafe which was fully booked being Mothers day. Antique/Retro shop, and a pub. Bought items as a thank you for the stay in Cust.

Wonderful freedom campsite. very quiet, green and clean spot! Good facilities, drinking water and even a sink where you can wash your dishes! If it's raining you have a shelter for cooking. I don't know if the number of vehicles is limited for I saw no sign but there is plenty of space for 7-10 vehicles.
There were no sandflies around!
