Why stay here ...

The CL is a quiet 'adults only' site, owned and run by Ian who has lived in this beautiful part of North Norfolk since 2006. Situated in Gresham the site is set in the grounds of the owner's home in 4.5 acres and is open all year.

The flat site is reached by its own drive. The pitches are hard-standing and accommodate twin axle caravans and motorhomes, with 16 amp electric hook-up, TV hook-up and awning space. The heated 'his and hers' toilet includes hot showers (no additional charge); information board, brochures and books. Laundry facilities are available to those staying a minimum of 14 nights. Site includes an enclosed dog walking area with poo bin, there is no additional charge for two dogs. Local shop, service station and pub are within 2 miles.

The surrounding land is farmed. The CL is tranquil and close to the coast. The nearest being the sandy beach at West Runton (3 miles), where the largest fossilized skeleton of a steppe mammoth was found. Nearby are the seaside towns of Sheringham (4 miles) home of Poppy Line and 40s weekend and Cromer (4 miles) with pier, promenade and annual carnival.

A small pedigree flock of Hampshire Down reside in the adjoining paddocks. The site attracts much wildlife and is the home of barn owls. There is much flora and fauna. Verge sides are covered in snow drops, daffodils, primroses, wild garlic, cow slips and poppies, changing as the seasons change. Across open fields hares race and pheasants and partridges abound. Amongst the woodlands there are dells of blue bells where deer graze, the fields are bordered by hedgerows covered in the blossom of black thorn and hawthorn, and later in the year with blackberries and sloes. High in the wide open skies buzzards soar and as winter approaches, the skies are filled with migrating geese in V-formation.

Walks from the site include Felbrigg Hall (National Trust) which follows Weavers Way. Also ideal for cyclists as Route 30 from Kings Lynn to Great Yarmouth passes the front of the site and the National Trust Route 33 from Felbrigg to Blicking is within 1 mile.

One-off access fee of £3 for WiFi; no additional usage charge

Cosy site close to coast and attractions

Church Farm Cottages
Ian runs a lovely site, close to the coast and other attractions. Good pitch sizes, toilets and showers are a great addition. Peaceful location with lovely countryside surrounding it. Ian provides a wealth of information about the area, walks etc. A well kept site along with his cottages and animals Ian never seems to stop.

Wonderful site

Church Farm Cottages
This is a wonderful little site, which is a few minutes drive from Cromer and Sheringham. The booking process was very clear, with excellent communication from Ian. On arrival, Ian met us and showed us to our pitch which was well spaced and very peaceful. The toilet and shower facilities are excellent and kept very clean, and there is a nice contained space for dogs to place. There was a lovely quiet atmosphere amongst the other campers, many of who were returning, as will we!! Thank you Ian for your kind hospitality, we look forward to seeing you again.
