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.

Just what a CL should be

Leith House
For those of us who don't want the high life frippery of showers, clubhouse, hard standings or serried ranks of caravans, this is a perfect place. Spacious field with hook ups widely positioned. Pitch where you want. Easy access. Surrounded by trees giving shelter from winds, this means no wide ranging vistas. However, a walk along the nearby lane for a mile and a half sees you in the dunes next to the sea. The Staithes are sometimes busy but free parking can usually be had (bonus for me!!) What else can I say? A tap, a disposal point, bins. Don't need or want any more, thanks. For those faint of heart, follow the directions. Following the Sat Nav can lead you down narrow lanes with few passing places, but nothing really serious.

Looking forward to returning soon

Leith House
We loved our stay here , for many reasons . The site is Natural peaceful and relaxing. Andrea went out of her way to make us feel welcome, even delivering a cake made by her gorgeous daughters for my birthday which was a lovely gesture . The family also brew their own beers which are well worth trying from the Maltcoast brewery.Your are situated perfectly to visit all the beautiful locations in this wonderful part of the world . We will definitely return here again soon.

Beautiful peaceful and just perfect!

Leith House

We have stayed here on quite a few occasions over the years and family too. This site is peaceful and beautifully located next to the orchards which we were welcome to walk around with our dog. We spotted deer and other wildlife and the bird song day and night was a pleasure to tune in to. Basic field grass freshly cut. Simple facilities as in drinking tap, rinse tap and waste disposal and recycling of waste bins etc. We need no more as have own facilities in our caravan. So much space within the CL field. Left to our own devices, yet owners contactable as advertised on their listing. Payment made by BACS on departure. Owners checked we were happy with everything during our short bank holiday stay. We look forward to returning when work allows us time to do so! On the doorstep for a sunset walk at Burnham Staithe, Holkham and Wells very close and a nice Chinese just 1 mile away! 🙂

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
