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 £2 for WiFi; no additional usage charge

Peaceful weekend

We booked a two-night stay, and have had a wonderful stay, very peaceful, found some lovely dog walks from the site and was nice to have a secure area to let them off on-site. The facilities were very well kept and a bonus. Will be booking another stay soon.

Fab CL

Just spent 2 nights at this lovely little cl. Not one of the largest we’ve stayed at, but what it lacks in size it makes up for with location, facilities, peace and quiet, lovely welcome from the owner, gorgeous sheep for neighbours and just all round loveliness. We’ll be back.

Super Site

We stayed here for 5 nights last week of October 2019. It is a lovely site, with excellent facilities which were spotlessly clean. Ian was helpful but not overly intrusive. He cleans like a woman(!) The showers and toilets were spotless and well equipped. Bins and disposal all very clearly laid out and closeby. Pitches are flat, with one fully serviced. They are small gravel / shingle hardstandings in a sheltered row. There is plenty of room to put up an awning/tarp and put pegs in to the grass boarders separating each pitch. There is the fully serviced pitch right next to the toilet/shower block, with the others in a row opposite. At the very bottom is a slightly more secluded pitch, which may appeal to some seeking privacy. That said - the whole site is private bar the sheep in the next field! There is no hard rules about which way you face etc. Just common sense applied so as not to obstruct others. We ate at the Gunton Arms nearby as well as Boltons Bistro and No1 Cromer. All were excellent. Back to the site: It's fab and I'd find it hard to believe anyone would find fault here - it's a perfect CL in a lovely spot with kind hosts. Thank you Ian for a lovely stay. We would recommend this site to anyone.

Gem of a CL

A weekend break in this tranquil CL left us fully relaxed and so pleased we used it. The directions provided when we booked were excellent and Ian's welcome was warm and friendly. There are actually 6 pitches here (in agreement with the Club) all hard standing and flat making things so easy to pitch. The toilet block consists of a heated wooden building that was immaculate throughout. We used it as a base for nearby Sheringham and Cromer and as a bonus found that National Trust's Fellbrig Hall was only a 5 minute drive away. Would definitely recommend this gem of a CL and certainly hope to return

What a great CL

A big thank you to Ian & Sue the owners for giving us a wonderful time on their farm. This is a fantastic cl to enjoy a really relaxing time, excellent pitch sizes, excellent facilities and not too far from the coast. We had wonderful weather and enjoyed everyone's company who stayed on the site along side and opposite us, thank you to all users you made our holiday. Hope everyone got home safe and sound, and you never know we may see each other next year. Well worth a visit.
