Our 4 night stay

We stayed on this CL for 4 nights in August 2018. The site itself is in two areas, we stayed on the larger one, but with two other caravans on the site we were pitched closest to the main A149 which was very busy! The site is well maintained, with good dog walking in the extensive woods. We found the facilities to be rather scruffy and outdated and in need of a good clean, we did not use them. Overall, a nice stay, but would not return.

Comment from the CL Owners:

Glad to hear you had a nice stay. In response, we have had people comment before on noise from the A149 - both that it is intrusive but also just as many as to how quiet it can be. To clarify, the closest pitch to the A149 is across the CL field, a tree'ed hedge, the orchard field, and a second hedge. The road at this point has a speed limit of 30mph and can be busy during the day-time, but is quiet at night. Your stay coincided with Cromer Carnival week, and as the A149 is one of the routes into Cromer, it was probably much busier than usual during your break. I think people's perception of noise is very dependent on where they they live. With regards to the facilities (I am assuming toilet and shower), I do describe them as functional and most definitely not luxurious to any enquiries. Most guests are understanding, find them adequate, and a bonus considering they are included in the site fees. Being in a conservation area and a listed property, replacing them with a new shower block has proved very challenging, but they are cleaned a minimum of three times each week - properly scrubbed with bleach and the floors mopped as opposed to rinsed. We do not make an additional charge to use them, there is hot water and a supply of toilet roll. Thank you for commenting the site is well maintained and that you enjoyed walking your dog in our forest. We wish you many more delightful holidays on CL's.

Nice site

Just returned from an 8 night stay at this CL , this being our 2nd visit. The site is split into 2 fields.we were on the main site ,I think the owners split the bookings between the 2 fields to avoid the feeling of over crowding, we were with 2 other units at most and had the field to our self for 2 days !. It's a nice site surrounded by trees and has a private woodland behind which is fantastic if you are a dog owner. The field was well kept and mown before our arrival. As others have mentioned the toilet and shower facilities are old but functional , to be honest you can't moan about the facilities as for £10 a night you can pay more for a CL with no facilities at all so I think it's unfair to criticise. The owners are friendly and i think this will be our regular site for our Future holidays in the area.. it is ideal for holidays with family members who don't caravan as the rental cottages look nice and are close to the site. I should mention that the site is next to an A road but it's not too busy so don't let that put you off.

Simply wonderful

We arrived at this CL and were taken aback by the stunning surroundings, so idyllic. Perfect for us as we could enjoy walks with the dog in the woods and sit under the stars at night in total peace. Owners friendly, facilities basic but adequate. If you are after total escape and peace and quiet then this is the place, my family had the best holiday here and we will definitely return.

A Favourite for us

Booked this cl before seeing other reviews, but don't let them put you off! We really enjoyed our stay, such a peaceful setting, and lots of room. Woke each morning to sound of wind in tall pine trees. Particularly liked the direct walks from site into the edge of the forest, and so much to do and visit within a short drive; Cromer, north coast , Blickling Hall, the Broads, etc. We arrived at the end of Easter week, and the site was full for the first night, but as the field is an L shape, we couldn't see more than 2 others from our pitch, which was very spacious. Friendly owner met us on arrival, and we were allowed a choice of pitch. She warned us that one bit of the field was sometimes boggy, so we just drove round it, it wasn't a problem.  Any toilets or showers on a CL are a bonus, and we found these more than adequate. They are a bit basic, but clean enough, even after a Bank Holiday. And they are Free! If you want immaculate facilities, don't go for a peaceful countryside CL! Don't usually write reviews of our favourite CLs, as we like to keep them to ourselves, but felt I simply had to offer a balance to the other reviews: We really loved this one, and would definitely go again.
