Why stay here ...

Barleywood CL situated 8 miles from the beautiful North Norfolk Coast close to Burnham Market and Fakenham. The site itself is set over 1 acre of well-maintained grass with all clippings removed and very free draining. Pitches are well spaced out with access to 16amp electric hook ups, picnic tables and plentiful taps. There is also a fully oil centrally heated brand new shower and toilet block and laundry facilities. An information hut provides plenty of information on local attractions and eateries. Fridges and freezers stocking the basics are provided for your own use. We have a litter point and are keen on recycling. There are chickens on site and we sell fresh eggs. An abundance of wildlife visits the site including barn owls, red kite, woodpeckers, goldfinches, buzzards and fallow deer. This site is adults only and well-behaved dogs are welcome.

The site is an excellent base for walking or cycling the 43 miles of coastline. There is a place for fishing in the village along with many dog friendly pubs in the area. The local bus will stop outside if you flag it down. Some facilities and attractions are available in nearby Fakenham including shopping, gas, cinema, bowling and a selection of take aways. Close by are Sandringham, Blickling, Holkham Hall, Pensthorpe, Thursford spectacular, Burn Valley Vineyard and some wonderful seafood restaurants. Please see our website for further details.

Jewel in the crown.

What more is there to say. We have a preference for CL sites an can honestly say Barleywood is the best we have stayed on. We stayed for 7 nights from the 9th October and although the weather was not great we had a great week totally relaxed there was even night time displays courtesy of the RAF helicopters. David greeted us once we had set up to give us all the information we needed. Due to the Covid it was our choice not to use the shower facilities but they are fantastic and spotlessly clean. There is a water tap at each pitch and a 16A supply which makes life much easier. There is a well set up information room with items for sale and if you are a National Trust member then there are several sites in easy striking distance. In summary David and Lorna were great hosts and when you look at ratios for the facilities Barleywood has more to offer than any club site I have been on. Thanks for a lovely week.

Beautiful site

There is nothing not to like about this site. Facilities are spotlessly clean. We arrived 4/7 so the first week of sites being able to open after the Covid-19 lockdown. Every possible hand soap, sanitiser and wipe were available in the communal kitchen/info point and two toilet/shower facilities. The owners have gone to a great deal of effort to make staying her as hassle free as possible with water at each pitch and if you have a pipe for your waste water you can drain that away. The site itself has easy access to the coast and Sandringham and everywhere in between. We were so lucky to get on this site as it Is rightly booked up most of the year. If you too manage to get on you won’t be disappointed.

Short stay: lasting impression

Short stay: lasting impression. What a gem of a CL this is! Warm welcome from David and Lorna who clearly pour energy, hard work, much thought and attention to detail in providing an outstanding experience for their fortunate visitors. Shower/WC facilities absolutely pristine. Communal cabin provides a wealth of information: maps, local attraction info, DVDs, books, mementoes. You can watch TV, use washing and drying facilities, purchase curries, crumbles etc. from fully stocked freezers, together with milk, confectionary, soft drinks, local beers... You name it, if it isn't there, we’d guess it will be next time. Delightful small wooded area with nesting boxes along one side of the site; beautiful tree lined views and lovely Norfolk sunsets. Picnic tables/benches allocated to each very generous pitch. An old saying springs to mind... If it’s worth doing, it's worth doing well. David and Lorna, mission accomplished. You deserve many congratulations. Impeccable.
