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.

Shepherds Hut available to book.

Fantastic Site

What a fantastic site this is, despite heavy and constant rain for a number of days this site did not develop one puddle the drainage is great. The onsite facilities are also top notch with two brilliant shower and toilet rooms. Added to this the well stocked fridge and freezers with just about every item you might need we highly reccomend th apple crumble. There is also a washing machine and spin dryer available to use. Each pitch has water and electric hook ups, and you receive a great welcome from David and Lorna. Booked again for next year

Loved this site!

We spent a fabulous week at this site in mid October. It was the perfect base for our stay in North Norfolk exploring beaches, towns and castles. Easy access, fully serviced pitches and homemade cakes to die for. We will definitely hope to visit again soon!

Best CL

We stayed here for 2 nights in September (forgot to post review) and were lucky to get in as the site is quite understandably very popular. David and Lorna are great hosts and the site has more facilities than some Club sites. Freshly laid eggs, milk and home-cooked meals in the fridge and freezer. Nice to have water on each pitch as well as electric. Lovely setting and easy access to Wells and Holkham.

It doesn't get any better.

We have just returned from our usual 3 weeks visit @ Barleywood. 8th - 29th August. David & Lorna are all ways upgrading, and since our last visit in April, they have installed a brand new double toilet & shower rooms, replacing the existing ones, not that there was anything wrong with them. The grass was its usual lovely short, well mowed, and all the cuttings are picked up, and used for composting, over in the wood. We love you eggs, they taste so good, really good value too. A previous review mentioned that they couldn't re book, for when they wanted, but to be honest to get a 3+ week booking, we have had to book up now until 2024, they really are that well thought of, you only have to look on there dates that they are all ready booked up by You would not be disapointed, believe me, And then there's the wonderful wild life, owls, various. hares, loads of different birds, plus loads more, enjoy.
