Why stay here ...

Willoways is a 1 acre site set amidst a beautiful 11 acre strip of fen and wetland. In recent years CC visitors have reported many sightings of kingfishers, heron and muntjac deer along with an occasional otter sighting! Great Yarmouth seafront is just 4 miles and a 15 minute walk will get you to a dog friendly pub beside The Norfolk Broads.

Willoways is one Certiifcated Location of two at Mill Farm. Deodara is the other and details can be found on the Website. Entrances to each CL off Mill Road are 120 yards apart, Deodara being just south of Willoways. Children are permitted at Willoways although they are not permitted at Deodara. Electric Hook-Ups are provided each with 16 amps capacity, integral RCD safety cut-out and pre-pay card meters. You'll always find at least a couple of quid on the electric meter when you arrive so please make a note of how much there is, and that will be your starting point.  £5 cards can be bought at the farmhouse. Whatever electric credit you've bought and haven't used by the time you leave then you’ll be paid back pay before you leave. Most people use less than £1 per day. At 13.5 pence per KWH it’s probably cheaper than being at home! Save more...stay longer!

Access to Willoways and the WC is controlled via a combination padlock the number to which you will be given.

If you like fishing then why not try your skill at landing the infamous ‘Willoways Whopper’, a ghost carp of gargantuan proportion, samsonite strength, and an ugly beggar to boot. If he doesn’t want to play then no worries since at Willoways Water he cohabits with many common and mirror carp, tench, and elusive pure rudd. Access to Willoways Water is via a locked gate with a combination padlock. Children must be accompanied at all times by a responsible adult of at least 21 years of age. Barbed hooks, keep nets and boylies are not permitted. Unhooking mats are required. Thanks.

Bird watchers and nature lovers will enjoy exploring the Wild Garden Walk (your canine family members are very welcome also) taking a stroll alongside Willoways Water and maybe you’ll get to say hello to Donald and Daisy.

Also a particularly special feature of the Wild Garden Walk are the rare Wild Orchids which you can see growing in glorious abundance towards the end of June and into July.

Just what the doctor ordered!

How refreshing to visit a site with owners who are trusting, fair and so welcoming. We had to leave two days early due to my wife being unwell, We had booked for 6 nights in peak season and despite offering to pay for our booked stay our payment was refused for the days not used, we were even offered a refund for unused electricity. Thank you. The site is everything we like about a CL, plenty of space, nice grass which was well cared for and freedom to park as we liked. Dog walk on site and free fishing! what more could you want. I agree with a previous review about the waste disposal point being a bit primitive but not a reason for us not to return or mark it down. We were given a local map on arrival with great information on local shops, pubs and places to see. Again thank you for a very pleasant stay.

Another fantastic few days,

Again had another wonderfull few days at this quiet, unspoilt site, close to many jewels of the Norfolk country side and coast, nothing is to much for the owners, and with metered electric you pay for what you use,

This is one of the best if not the best and cheapest CL sites we have ever stayed on very basic but that's the way we like it. Electric hook up 16 amp charged per use, it was cold and wet for 7 of our days here and used the heating every night so we used about £2 per day when there is better weather I would think we would only use a £1 or less a day. The fishing lake is a nice bonus and you can fish it for free. We loved it so much we ended up staying 17 days and will definitely be returning this year and in future years too. The space you get is enough for you caravan, car, awning and a sitting out area.

Most wonderfull site.

We have been using this wonderfull site for many years now, and this evening im sitting in the van looking out over the site, thinking of the privious nights strong winds and heavy rain (7mm) the site is so sheltered by trees that we did not feel or hear the wind, and its so well drained that you would not have known it had rained, yes its basic almost off the grid caravanning, card system electric very fair and cheap, small toilet for those that need one, river side walk and fishing lake and fantastic owners, and as they would say in Great Yarmouth, as cheap as chips, shame i don't know about more of these good value for money sites, but its not everyone cup of tea,

an enjoyable stay

Stayed on this lovely site Easter 2018 just after the snow so ground quite wet still, however we were directed to a well drained patch just inside the gate and all was well. Helpful pleasant owners and we enjoyed our stay. 2 adults, 2 children plus dogs in a caravan. Sadly still too cold for husband to do any fishing but a good base to visit local areas from and pleasant dog walking within the grounds along the river.
