Why stay here ...

Approximately 4 miles from the A11, in the heart of Norfolk and close to many different attractions, Elm Croft CL site is a great place to stay. A tranquil, peaceful and quiet site, as well as being close enough to explore new places. Cycling from site.

The pitching area comprises of 3/4 acre of flat mown grass, with electric hook ups available and waste disposal point nearby.

You can sit and enjoy the rural setting with local wildlife visiting, including deer, rabbits, owls and various other birds, all on the doorstep of your pitch. There are numerous public footpaths within the village which is walking distance from the site.

Also in the village there is a lovely local run pub with a beer garden and food served daily.

The community run shop is well stocked with essential supplies including freshly baked bread from the local bakery. There is also a little cafe within the shop selling cakes, pies and sausage rolls, to go with a nice hot beverage. With seating available inside and out it is an ideal stop off point on an adventure around the village. Dogs are welcome within the outside seating area.

Just what we needed

Returned home this week after 7 nights at Elm Croft. The site is well away from the main road and is lovely and flat with well mowed grass surrounded by laurel bushes, various trees, shrubs, wallflowers and blossom which provided a variety of colour. This will be even prettier when Sally (the owner) has finished planting all the summer bedding plants. There is a lovely seating area with rattan furniture for guests to use, as well as fresh eggs from Sally’s chickens. We were warmly welcomed by Sally who is happy to share her local knowledge with you. The site has EHU, drinking water and Elsan point which are immaculately kept with hand sanitiser at key points. There is a toilet (again immaculately clean) which contains information on various walks, books, games, take away menus and general tourist information. The local village pub is a lovely 20-25 minute walk along very quiet country lanes. There is also a village shop and cafe within the shop. Wymondham is well worth a visit as is Attleborough which has a Sainsbury’s, Lidl and M&Co. Wells-next-the-Sea is about a 45 minute drive and just beautiful. Also Bressingham Steam and Garden Centre is worth a visit. All in all a great stay, the CL is an absolute credit to Sally, we hope to be back soon. Rob & Jayne

Great place to get away from it all

Just back from few nights at Elm Croft, a really lovely pretty site with excellent facilities and a warm welcome! Great area for walking on quiet country tracks and roads. Easy walk to the The White Hart Pub in the Village ... currently only open Fri, Sat & Sun. we also walked to Great Ellingham and had lunch at The Crown which was really nice but bit more pricey. Definitely worth a visit we will return!

Great CL site

We stayed at Elm Croft the first week of August 2020 in our Motor Home with Ted the dog, Elm Croft is an Adult only, very relaxing well maintained grass field site, with generous space between pitches (including electric hook ups) with the whole site is surrounded by pretty boarders. Toilet facilities were spotlessly clean with good varied information on the surrounding areas including a number of clearly identified local walks. Sally is a wonderfully informative hostess who takes great pride on her site (and rightly so!) and is often seen on site but never intrusive. There are the occasional "country smells" and "animal noises" from the local farms but nothing we found bothersome. We would highly recommend Elm Croft as a relaxing site in it's own right and also as a base for touring Norfolk.

Relaxing and lots of butterflies!

We had a lovely weeks break at this peaceful site. The pitches are spacious and there's lots of buddliea planted which attracted the butterflies, they landed on us quite often when we were sitting outside the caravan. The owners of the site are very friendly and helpful and keen to do as much as possible to ensure that you have a good stay. We enjoyed the fresh eggs. The village shop is about a 25 min stroll away. The roads are very quiet so good for cyclists. There are details of walks from the site are in the toilet block (one toilet). It was about 1hr 15min drive to Cromer and about 15/20 mins to Thetford forest. The village of Hingham has a great bakery and butchers shop and it's 10 mins drive away. Attleborough is a lovely little town too. We didn't visit any pubs or cafes because of covid. We just wanted somewhere away from it all and a change of scenery and this site gave us exactly that.

peaceful

Stayed for a week from 9th July, so impressed with site, lovely sitting areas, wonderful eggs from friendly white chickens, plant cuttings etc also available. Sally and her whole family so kind and helpful, could not have been better. Grass nice and short, lovely plants all round and in a wonderful quiet setting down a peaceful lane. Attention to detail was second to none, and kindness and welcome wonderful, thank you so much, will definitely (if we can get in) be back! Sue & Mark
