beautiful area but..

Eastwood Whelpton Ltd
Well girls if you want to meet a chap this is the place for you!. You'll find them in the Ladies nicking the toilet paper as theirs had run out. This despite the door code as it had been propped open! Therefore one of our dispensers ran out too, and I'd bet the other did as well before the contract cleaner came on a Tuesday, which is not often enough for a CL and busy yacht basin.The waste bin was overflowing when I arrived on Friday! There was also a blocked toilet but these things happen. Probably a desperate call for attention from a lonely loo. But more seriously, it is such a shame that a CL in such a beautiful interesting area should be spoilt by such low standards of care.

We loved it, but it may not be for everyone!

Eastwood Whelpton Ltd
We loved our stay here, it was peaceful, abundant with nature and wildlife, central to wherever we wanted to go, close to the river/dyke, and the owners were kind and helpful. There are no electrics on this site, but what was really helpful was the use of the clean and modern shower and toilets. The water, bins, emptying point and toilet facilities were a fair walk, notably further than what you may ordinarily expect on a CL. This wasn't a problem for us, but for anyone with mobility challenges this may need to be a consideration, particularly with bumpy ground to negotiate crossing the caravan site. Again, the ground wasn't a problem for us but if anyone prefers pristine lawns or hardstanding then this is something you may wish to consider. We loved it here, and the surrounding area, and we had a fab week! Thank you!!

Just stayed for four nights. Fantastic location for riverside walks, bird watching and peace and quiet. Warm welcome and good service’s. Field a bit bumpy but flat.

Used to be good but needs bit of TLC...

Eastwood Whelpton Ltd
We have been coming here for many years but our last visit was a disappointment. The field had not been mowed for ages and they have a mole problem causing very uneven and soft ground in some areas, so much so that you're almost guaranteed to get bogged down. We parked as close to the entrance gate as possible in case it rained, luckily it didn't. One van on site was already stuck, the owner was going to pull him out on his departure day. Unless they do something about the field I cannot see them getting 5 units in without at least 3 getting stuck. It now seems neglected which is a shame. Its in a lovely area with beautiful walks and views. If they tend to the field then we shall visit again as we used to.

Peaceful and Scenic

Lovely CL next to the boatyard at the gateway to the broads. Boats can be hired. There is no ehu which wouldn't normally be a problem for us. However our fridge failed on gas which we noticed late Saturday afternoon. They very kindly allowed us to park in the yard to allow us access to electric. They wouldn't take payment but said we could leave a donation. We decided to leave a day early forfeiting one nights fee to cover any electric we used. There is a pub and shop both run by the local community about 5 mins walk away. Lovely setting, would highly recommend.
