Why stay here ...

For those wishing to get away from it all and enjoy the peace and quiet of deepest rural Norfolk this is the perfect caravan park as it offers a 0.5 acre site, level and well sheltered with woodchip hard standing with enough room on each pitch to park your caravan and awning. Motorhomes park on the grass beside the pitch. Up to date wet room with toilet, hot shower, hand basin and changing area with chair.

If you love wildlife there is plenty to see at Spring Meadow, barn and tawny owls, woodpeckers and deer are regularly seen together with a variety of birds.

Freshly laid Happy Hen Free Range Eggs from our hens are available for your cooked breakfasts.

The Norfolk Coast and Broads can be easily reached by car or cycle with extensive sandy beaches at resorts like Cromer (10 miles), Sheringham (14 miles) and fine National Trust Properties at Blickling (3 miles), Felbrigg (10 miles) and Sheringham Park (13 miles).

The medieval City of Norwich is only 14 miles south and the tranquil Norfolk Broads are nearby.

Weavers Way, Marriotts Way and the Norfolk Coastal path are nearby. This is a good cycling area. Many quiet routes to the coast and the Broads.

Norwich is an excellent shopping base with Castle Mall and Chapelfield Shopping Centres. Alternatively the nearby Georgian town of Holt can provide many interesting finds. Supermarkets can be found in North Walsham (Waitrose, Sainsburys and Lidls) and Aylsham (Co-Op, Budgens and Tesco) along with some lovely award winning Butchers shops.

Tourist Information on site.

The Bure Valley narrow gauge steam railway is in Aylsham. Take the train from Aylsham to Wroxham and book a boat trip on the broads. Alternatively you can cycle to Wroxham from Aylsham Station (9 miles level) and get the train back. Cycles can be taken on the train if you pre-book.

Dining - The Crown Public House is situated in Banningham approximately half a mile. Full meals and bar meals are available daily. They operate a business loyalty scheme and you will receive a 5% discount if you tell them when you book that you are staying a Spring Meadow. Other local pubs serving good food are The Black Boys Hotel in Aylsham Market Place, The Recuiting Sargeant at Horstead and for something completely different The Gunton Arms, Thorpe Market. Please see our website for telephone numbers.

We welcome dogs but please keep them on leads at all times, thank you.

We caravan ourselves so we hope we have provided our guests with everything they need to enjoy a relaxing and happy holiday.

Perfection

First time staying at a CL but if all CL's are like this it won't be our last. I couldn't fault anything about this site, especially the owners Richard and Alison. We received a lovely warm reception from Alison who made us feel welcome immediately. The pitches are well maintained lush grass with bark chipping for caravan standing. There is a lovely shower and toilet room for exclusive use of campers, which is kept spotlessly clean. It is in a great area for visiting local attractions and also has great walks from the site, and cycle paths on the doorstep. Only a few minutes walk are lovely public houses serving good food. Richard and Alison are a credit to the site as they work incredibly hard to make their site attractive to all campers whether in a caravan or motorhome, and we will definitely return. We would highly recommend this site!

Perfect

We chose Spring Meadow as the site for our very first caravan holiday ever and we really could not have picked a more wonderful place. We were welcomed by Alison who showed us where everything was and helped with some useful hints and tips before leaving us to settle in. Having sorted out what all the switches and knobs and connectors do (I think) we took a moment to sit and relax. We watched the chickens in the field next to our pitch wandering happily, listened to the beautiful pine trees swishing in the breeze and quite frankly couldn’t believe our luck. On a practical note, the grass was cut and tidy and all five pitches were on wood chipping which kept everything clean and tidy. We used the facilities, because let’s face it, dealing with the Thetford would have been a step too far this time. The loo and shower were spotless. There’s a great field close by for dog walking and of course the site is in the most beautiful part of North Norfolk with plenty of walking and sightseeing opportunities. We were a bit worried about narrow lanes on the approach but it was fine, there are loads of passing places and the lane is very quiet. We had a bit of an issue with a faulty fuse on the tow bar connector when we left and we’re helped by our neighbours to sort it all out with such good will and humour. Spring Meadow was such a friendly and relaxing place to stay and we very much look forward to returning.

Another perfect stay

Back from another 12 nights stay at one of our favourite sites. Peace and quiet was just what was needed as an antidote to our stressful lives. Perfect access to both Norfolk coasts and the broads. Lots of beautiful walks especially if you have dogs. Richard and Alison perfect hosts. Site has all you need and lots of amenities very close at hand. So sad to leave but We will be back as soon as we can.

Little Gem

This was out second visit to see Alison and Richard and as before we received a very warm welcome, the site and facilities are well maintained The site is situated on quiet lane with easy access You really must try the eggs the best we have evert tasted, lovely recreation ground at the bottom of the lane for dog walking. This is one site that we will certainly be returning to on a regular basis. Thank you Alison and Richard see you next year
