Con Man

We had booked by email and arrived on site Saturday, tried to pay at the mobile home Sunday before we left on Monday but no one in, eventually Derek the owner came round Sunday evening to collect the fee's. I got out £30 and asked if he had change as I thought the C&MC website said £14, he said that's OK its the right amount, thought it was a lot but could not remember the price so paid and went home Monday. On arriving home checked the website and it clearly states the price is £12 summer and £14 in winter so we have been conned out of £6. Emailed Derek to see what he had to say but surprise surprise no reply!!! Will not use this site anymore as even though its a small amount to be ripped off by an unscrupulous con man is fraudulent. Would recommend you steer well clear!

Peaceful, friendly site. Very good position for seeing both Norfolk and Suffolk.

We picked this CL because of it's position in East Anglia and were well pleased. A bit of difficulty seeing the CL sign as it was hidden by bushes and we overshot the entrance and had to back up the caravan but otherwise no problem. Notice for the future that it is exactly opposite a telegraph pole just after Rectory Lane if you are coming from the A11. It was noticeable that others on the site were mainly 'returners'. If we holiday in that area in the future we would definitely stay here again. Very relaxing and well cared for. Other reviewers have mentioned the local pub and shop plus a good variety in Attleborough.

Hope you're a match fisherman

Planned to stay for a couple of days in December for a little fishing but, firstly no hardstanding, the owner insisted we wouldn't have any problems or get stuck despite the huge amount of rain we had. Well we didn't get stuck but it took a lot of cleaning to remove all the mud thrown up on the wheel arches on departure. The site is primarily set up for fisherman and Im sure the fishing is excellent but we needed to top up with drinking water when we arrived however there was a fishing match on and the only water tap available is where the fisherman park so we were told to fill up in the morning.....but there was another fishing match the following morning so we had to fill up before they started arriving at 8.00! The facilities are also shared with the fisherman and the on site shower requires a key to access and is very basic and in need of updating. Fortunately we were not furnished with a key to use the shower. At £14 a night for two adults in December and shared facilities with the fisherman plus £5 a day to fish onto (if we could) this was grossly overpriced. We wouldn't have booked this site if we had known there were two fishing matches booked for the days we planned to stay so needless to say we didn't bother staying to fill up with drinking water the next morning or get any fishing in. On a positive note the Crown around the corner is a great little pub.

Great place to stay & fish

Just had a glorious week at Mill Farm Fishery with Mr Derek Beales. Field is spacious with plenty of space for the largest of caravans and awnings. Facilities although basic are adequate & clean. Mr Beales is a joy and so laid back he is almost horizontal. Take time to get to know him and he may share some of his fabulous home made wine with you, as he did with us on several occasions. If you like coarse fishing this is the place for you. At £5 a day on the two lakes stuffed with Carp, Tench & Roach (competitions permitting) it is an absolute bargain. I caught over 80lb of fish in a six hour session. If there are matches on there is also a third lake you can fish for free with lots of smaller fish up to 3 to 4lb in it and a great place to teach kids to fish. Attleborough is only 5 mins away with lots of local bakeries and butchers selling local produce also Lidl & Sainsbury's supermarkets. The local shop (2mins walk) is great for that morning paper, fresh bread and any essentials for breakfast. The Crown pub is also 2 mins walk, serves great food and is very dog friendly both in the bar and beer garden. We have already booked a two week stay next year which is testament to how good this CL is.

Good base for touring

We stayed here for 2 nights while touring East Anglia. It is a pleasant site with a nice walk around the fishing lakes with the dogs -after hours. The owner, Derek , is very helpful. We didn't use the showers as the weather was awful and we have our own onboard facilities. Its a pity the local pub was closed for refurbishment as it looked very nice. After all the heavy rain we were worried about getting our motorhome off the site, but had no problems as the site is very well drained. it is a useful site for touring as there are many attractions nearby eg Norwich and the Broads.
