Excellent CL

Nursery Farm
This CL is well situated for easy access to Cromer. The local village has no facilities at all. The site is extensive and each pitch has a massive area to pitch in. We were on Pitch 1 which has a superb position. The owners are friendly and both greeted us on arrival. EHU is 16A and there are the usual facilities. TV reception was very poor but internet was good. There is some road noise but we didn't find it obtrusive. The daily charge is £15 and not as quoted in the CMAC book. To sum up, we thought the CL was excellent and would definitely return.

Recent Visit

Nursery Farm
The facilities are basic but they are clean. A few creepy crawlies due to being housed in shed. Based in the lower field our pitch was particularly dry and sandy with pine needles. We hadn't realised this so would recommend other caravanners check this out before pitching as a lot of dirt gets tracked into the awning. We should have pitched on full grass but that was our mistake. We did find the road noise intrusive. It is a very busy road and needs care when turning out as the traffic is busy and travelling at a high speed. My main concern was that in the top paddock and indeed the caravanner sited next to us did not keep their dogs tethered. We noticed this throughout our stay. Just before our departure I took our small dog for a quick walk around the woods (on a lead) and through the top paddock. Whilst walking through the top paddock a loose lurcher type dog attacked our dog. It was very frightening and myself and the dog owner had to physically separate them. Luckily there was no damage but a few seconds later I think my dog would have been badly wounded or even killed. I was so upset we left the site immediately. I would request that the owners of the site please enforce the rule that dogs should not be left untethered even if their owners are outside with them. A quick check is all it needs. Because of this traumatic event we would not return.

FANTASTIC WEEK

Nursery Farm
We have just returned from a beautiful week in what was our own dingly dell. We had a warm welcome from the owners. The site has a wonderful wood which was perfect for walking our two dogs. The site was clean and well presented and it is a bonus that there is a toilet and shower if you want to use it. We were in the top filed and for most of the week we were on our own. It is an easy drive into Cromer and is in an ideal location for exploring the area. We will definately be returning a great find.

Four Fabulous Nights

Nursery Farm
We booked this CL at very short notice and were amazed what good value it turned out to be with very helpful owners, the site is lovely, tidy, spacious, sheltered and secluded. The site has a choice of pitches all with their own water, TV and mains hook up.There are well organised re-cycling facilities a well stock information hut as well as very adequate toilet emptying facilities, toilets, shower room and laundry room. The site is surrounded by its own woodland which has plenty of room for exercising your pets. Being at the heart of North Norfolk your in easy reach of the coast as well as some wonderful towns, villages and stately homes. The village of Roughton about 3 miles away has a well stocked shop as well as a Fish & Chip. If you prefer just to relax by your caravan you can as you watch the wildlife. Will we return, most certainly as soon as we get the chance.

Our 4 night stay

Nursery Farm

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.
