Why stay here ...

Wendy and her daughter Sarah offer a warm and friendly welcome to Hevingham Lakes.  Our CL site is a very spacious level site situated adjacent to approximately 200 acres of heath and woodland, which is designated a site of special scientific interest. A haven for wildlife offering regular sightings of Kingfisher, Squirrels, Moorhen, Barn Owls, Deer and Night Jars, as well as being an established colony of the Silver Studded Blue butterfly. A lovely area for walking and exploring with the dog. For those who like to fish we have two lakes within our own grounds, stocked with Carp, Tench, Roach, Rudd and Bream.

There are glorious beaches around the Norfolk Coast and interesting harbours at Blakeney and Wells. The seaside town of Cromer is also home to the famous Pavilion Theatre and traditional end of pier show and well known for Cromer Crabs. Holt is a market town which is certainly worth a visit.

The Georgian market town of Aylsham 4 miles away has a variety of retail outlets, a Tescos and a Co Op, weekly auction sales and famous markets. A little further on is Blickling Hall, a beautiful Jacobean National Trust property which has links to the family of Anne Boleyn. For cyclists the 26 mile Marriotts Way stretches from Aylsham to Norwich and follows the routes of two disused railway lines. The Bure Valley Railway is Norfolks longest 15 inch gauge line which runs between Aylsham and Wroxham where boat trips are organised and there is a path/cycle track running alongside the narrow gauge line. Wroxham and the renowned Norfolk Broads are only 10 miles away. 

Norwich is an easy 8 mile drive away and boasts some beautiful sites spanning 2000 years of history. The castle museum is one of the finest spectacular Norman buildings in Europe. It was built as a Royal Palace for William the Conqueror. Norwich Cathedral and the Visitor Centre is well worth a visit with the second tallest spire and the largest cloister in England. There is a large collection of high street shops and malls, being in the top 10 shopping destinations in the UK. The Lanes is a medieval area of Norwich made up of alleyways with a selection of quaint independent shops.

Norwich market is the largest open-air market in the country open 6 days a week. The nearest public house is approx 1.5 miles away and you are spoilt for choice for places to eat.

A Peaceful Haven

Hevingham Lakes
Stayed here for 4 nights in early August 2021. A very warm welcome from the hosts. Incredibly peaceful sight close to Buxton Heath and its natural wonders. Great cycling country with miles and miles of quiet lanes just waiting to be explored. Yes the site is quite sandy - it's outdoors and is next to a heathland. The sandiness is a very good thing as there were thundery showers when I was there and this meant that the site drained very quickly. Will definitely be back. Thanks very much.

Could be so much more

Hevingham Lakes
Please don't get me wrong, the site itself is lovely and I know we're not out of lockdown yet but........ The ground is very loose, sandy with hardly any grass to cover it, resulting in this horrible sandy mess being walked into the caravan and being horrible to get out, especially when wet. The close proximity of a working saw mill is disturbing during work hours. The access entrance is quite narrow and when booking in you have to leave your unit in the entrance, blocking access and egress to the site. Those are the negatives. The positive are that the site is in a stunning location in a beautiful part of the county, down wonderful country lanes and the owners are hugely helpful, friendly people. If it wasn't for that horrible sandy soul causing us to spend as much time cleaning as relaxing, it would be a fantastic site, giving it a much higher rating.

Few days away in June 2017

Hevingham Lakes
We stayed here on the CL site for a couple of nights during very hot weather. We had the choice of staying on the CL site or the commercial site by the lakes but decided on the CL. We had intended to do some fishing but the weather was so hot that we didn't really do anything. We walked round the lakes and it was a little cooler by the water. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and willing to help with local knowledge etc. Unfortunately the bus stop was just a little too far to walk to. Met some lovely fellow campers on the site most of who were new to the site like us. The site is an open field with plenty of room for pitching which meant you could have your privacy but at the same time see and speak to your neighbours. There is a toilet and shower on site which was kept very clean. The lane outside the site was rather busy but fairly quiet at night. Quite a few large lorries during the day.

What a peaceful site

Hevingham Lakes
The site is an open flat field, with two electric points either side and one at the end, with the lane running along one side.   Access into the sites is limited by the width of the drive that is easily blocked by a car or unit stopping for reception, make sure it is clear before committing yourself or be prepared to reverse out of difficulty. Walking round the lakes and commercial sites is very pleasant.

Very Peacefuk

Hevingham Lakes
We came for a 6 day break and when we booked were unaware that were two different sites- the caravan club CL and the more "commercial site". For £1 more we decided to pitch on the site adjacent to the lakes and weren't disappointed. It's so peaceful here with lots of wildlife and a great walk around the lakes on site. We had a pitch with hook up, but some pitches are seasonal (no hook up) and a couple have static caravans on them. The owner is extremely friendly and we are looking to come again for Whitsun Week in May. Our only quibble is the one waster tap and waste disposal for the whole site which is several acres (not the CL as this is separately situated). However, the peace and tranquility far outweigh this one negative point.
