Why stay here ...

This is a wonderfully secluded quiet site, just one mile from the sea (Burnham Overy Staithe) in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Sitting in the centre of the North Norfolk Coast it provides fantastic access to the beautiful villages dotted along the coast as well as being just over a mile from the popular village of Burnham Market which boasts many high quality independent shops including deli's, restaurants, butchers and fishmongers.

The famous wide sandy beaches at Holkham and Wells Next the Sea are just 3 and 5 miles away respectively. There are many fantastic pubs and restaurants in the surrounding villages serving fresh local produce.

The site itself, in a charming rural setting, sits next to the unique family run Leith House orchards witch includes over 3000 plum and apple trees as well as an abundance of wildlife. A place to relax as well as enjoy all the North Norfolk Coast has to offer.

Nice but ..

Leith House
This site is in the perfect location for everything the North Norfolk coast has to offer. Fabulous beaches, numerous attractions and beautiful countryside. Maybe we were unlucky but the owners never came to greet us and we had to visit the farmhouse to pay and didn't see them then. No information given or interaction which was disappointing particularly as we text Andrea about an incident on site for which one would have expected a personal response rather than a text reply. The grass was long and old mowings were left so we were constantly walking soggy grass cuttings into the caravan. It was cut during our visit (of 7 nights) once but not very well as large areas were left and yet more grass to walk into the van. There were good dog walks locally which we found by talking to fellow campers, not from the owners. We were not told of any dog exercise area or given any permission or guidance about access to the orchards. To be honest it all looked like it needed some TLC. Access was good apart from a terrible pot hole on the entrance, so do be aware. It could be a wonderful site but sadly fell a bit short for us, particularly as it cost £20 a night, which would have been fine if it was up to scratch. That said it was quiet and you could walk to the beach, which was approx 2 miles.

Forget the negative reviews

Leith House
Perfect. It's a field with power, water and chemical disposal. It takes five or six units and is quiet and peaceful. If you want more, look elsewhere. Andrea and her husband are welcoming and friendly, although new arrivals would benefit from check-in information. Basically, there's not really any requirement to check-in. You arrive, find yourself a pitch and set up, but there's nothing to tell you that, so it's easy to wander about wondering what to do. Dogs should be on leads but there is an enclosed area of rough pasture where they can be free-run. The plum orchards can be walked too and there are plans to set up a picnic area and provide plum based drinks. The site is perfectly located for exploring the north Norfolk coast. Hunstanton, Brancaster, Wells, Holkham are all within very easy reach and provide some of the best beaches in the country. Brancaster and Holkham in particular are vast and fabulously sandy. Stately homes and good shopping are close too. The Chinese take-away in Burnham Market (2 mins from the site) is great and the prawn balls are the best we've ever had. Contrary to other reviews, this site is perfectly fine for camper vans and smaller motorhomes; there were a couple there during our stay and they had no problems. The grass is regularly cut. This is our new "go-to" site for our future trips to Norfolk

This Site Is Not Suitable For Motorhomes

Leith House
This CL is unloved and neglected with grass that is uncomfortably long, due it appears to laziness rather than environmental considerations. The owners do not understand the needs of caravan and motorhome owners and clearly wish to have as little contact as possible with their guests. The site is unsuitable for motorhomes due to the ancient tap connection being a non-standard size. If my husband had not had the ability and resources available to cobble together a makeshift connector it would have been impossible for us to take on water. The owner was surprised when this was pointed out and said that they had not had any problems before, despite us noticing that there is a previous review that mentions the problem (a lesson to read all the reviews carefully before booking perhaps). It’s a shame because the site has the potential to be incredible due to it’s situation and location. All in all a very expensive and disappointing CL.

No contact with owners

Leith House
Very disappointed with this site, we had no contact with the owners while we were there. It is a basic field with very long grass which dad been cut some time ago and the cuttings left to be trodden into out caravan, there were also 6 outfits pitched up one night so obviously not sticking to the rule of 5. Great location and could be a lovely site with some TLC.

Very sad news

Leith House
I have spent some wonderful holidays here and the site was always very well looked after and Clive was a wonderful host. I noticed some poor reviews and was surprised. I have now learned the very sad news that Clive died in December 2018 and care of the site was only taken over by relatives in autumn 2019. I have been in contact with the new owners who have been very helpful and although I haven't yet been back I have given it 5 stars both in memory of Clive and in the belief that on my next visit it will earn them.
