Great site

Whitehall Farm
Nelson's birthplace. We have stayed here a couple of times before and will be happy to come again. Situated close to Holkham Hall, it is very peaceful and the upgraded showers and toilets are very good and it's great to have good wifi. The grass is kept well shorn. The owners have clearly made a lot of effort to improve the facilities and we appreciate it. The Whitehall Box breakfast baps were excellent. The Lord Nelson pub in the village has reopened at long last and there are a number of good eateries nearby in Burnham Market, Wells-next-the-Sea and elsewhere and plenty of places selling good quality food - fish, meat, vegetables.

Peaceful and well situated.

Whitehall Farm
Peaceful. Beautiful location if you like countryside, the Norfolk coast, walking, and cycling. Superb facilities too - all very new. We enjoyed two nights here in our motor home. We walked to the coast, and cycled to Burnham Market. Didn't meet anyone officially when we arrived, but gave them a call, and they just said "pitch where you like". Very clean and well kept. No complaints. Fresh water so easy to get to, and toilet disposal also very handy. Geese and ducks coming in to land both evenings. Worth an idyllic short walk to Nelson's birth place. Useful information board too. Would recommend this site to anyone.

Relaxed and peaceful.

No complaints. This is a quite CL in glorious North Norfolk. The owners were themselves away on holiday but all our correspondence was dealt with by a family member who was holding the fort. Before our arrival we were told to pitch we we chose, and as it happened we were the last of 5 to get there. Grass pitches with plenty of space between each hook up. Single fresh water standpipe in the field but easy to park next to in order to fill the motorhome tank. Discreet chemical disposal point in the corner of the field. We enjoyed 3 nights here and would stay again.

Tranquil spot of Norfolk

Whitehall Farm
Stayed here from Sept 4-7, 2020, and was pleasantly surprised. As it was a last minute booking I was not able to get on the CL part of the site but with a good leisure battery and a solar panel my VWT6 had all the power I needed. Camping in the main field with the tents, glamping pods and mini cabins etc also made mixing with other campers easy even in those social distancing times. The site owners had antivax dispensers everywhere and the toilets, showers and wash areas were immaculate. Unlike some of the other reviewers we found the staff very helpful and friendly and the addition of the Whitehall Box where you can buy a cooked breakfast bap and a homemade curry with chips in the evening was the answer to a first day hunger after setting up Under the threat of rain clouds. The owners also rent out portable fire pits which were a good idea with the dodgy summer weather. Locally Burnham Thorpe parsonage is Nelson’s birthplace. The position of the site made it perfect for walking into Burnham Market, which we strolled in 30 minutes picking blackberries along the way and the nearby bridle paths made walking with a dog easy. The Victoria pub at New Holkham was within walking distance as was the fantastic beach. The views from the main camping field of the surrounding countryside were magnificent and the resident horses and a large owl added to the atmosphere. Every night we had the added sound and sight of the flights of geese coming in to settle for the night. We will definitely be back.

Disappointing.

Whitehall Farm
Stayed for 2 nights in May. Site was very quiet, just 2 units on the CL. At this time of year the campsite was nearly empty - so we had to give it 5 stars for peace and tranquility. Other reviews have mentioned the disruption from campers, they have to access their field via a track that is very close to the CL so it could be very noisy. Website stated that the CL has exclusive use of a toilet and shower (next to the farmhouse) this is not the case as people from the stables also use this. The website does not mention a £1 per night charge for dogs, only found about this when the invoice arrived. The photograph is rather misleading, there are no views from this site at caravan level - a barn on one side, brick wall on the other, tall hedge towards road and finally the access road to the tent camp site and another large barn. Expensive with the additional costs for children, dogs etc. When I paid by debit card (full amount) I was told to come into the farmhouse when we arrived, when I did this the owner was indifferent to say the least, just told to go and pitch up. It would have been nice to have been told where the facilities were, the toilet was right next door to the farmhouse front door and I had to ask her if it was the CL toilet. I would not have gone wandering round the farmhouse area looking for the shower/toilet. There is a block of 4 other toilets at the back of the barn, we found these later, these are much closer to the CL, but would have been busy had there been more tents. Access roads to the site are very narrow. We only stay on site at night, we are out during the day in the camper van, so it had all we needed, but we have stayed on much better sites & at cheaper prices. Would we stay here again - not sure.
