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

Spent 10 nights on pitch 3 on this lovely quiet adult only site, nice welcome and our pitch no shown on the board on arrival. Clean his and her facilities with information and maps of surrounding area. The pitches were fully serviced hardstanding with enough room for an awning. We parked our car in front of the caravan which didn't block the driveway. There are 6 pitches on site and the only problem encountered were the trees towering behind the pitch where pigeons spent most of the day and night pooping on our caravan and awning. There was also a smell from the stables immediately behind the pitch. For this reason, I would choose a different pitch in future, maybe towards the top of the site where the trees were more spaced out. There are many lovely walks from site including a 6 mile circular around Felbrigg NT estate. The surrounding lanes also provide brilliant bike rides. During our stay, we visited Blickling, Sheringham Park, Blakeney, Happisburgh and saw the beautiful seals basking on Horsey beach. Cromer is only a few miles away for provisions with many restaurants and take aways. Take care to follow the Cls route instructions as Sat navs take you through unsuitable narrow lanes.

A short break away

Church Farm Cottages
Come off the main road and you go down a country lane passing open countryside with wildlife in abundance, then you arrive at Church Farm Cottages. Follow the signs to the caravan site where you will find ponies in the paddock on one side and sheep in another (all rescued animals). The pitch information on the facilities building shows which pitch has been allocated to you. There is plenty to do in the area, plenty of beaches to discover, nature reserves, houses of interest among the choices. For us it was a pleasant break away and we will return in future.

Another beautiful Stay

Church Farm Cottages
We have now had several stays here Ian and Sue are a very friendly, the pitches are of good size plenty of space for caravan, awning and car with fresh water tap waste disposal and tv aerial connection. The toilet and shower block for his and hers are kept very clean and heated. Lovely surrounding's - woodland, flock of sheep in the paddocks, make it all quite tranquil. Highly recommend Tip Book early so not to be disappointed. Looking forward to our next stay soon.

A gem of a CL

Church Farm Cottages
We spent a week at this beautiful and peaceful CL arriving 19 March '22. The surroundings were lovely and the facilities excellent. The toilet and showers were immaculate and the pitches well maintained. We spent many a lazy morning sat outside on one of the benches drinking coffee in the sunshine, chatting and watching the sheep. Peaceful Bridle path across the road from the site for walking too. Very close to Cromer and Sheringham plus lovely walks through the woods at Felbrigg. Wells-next-the-Sea worth a visit too. Thanks to Ian - a great host. We hope to visit again. Roy & Barbara.
