Great CL site in North Norfolk

The Shieling
The Shieling is perfectly located for exploring the North Norfolk area. The site is well kept and although sloping, we had no trouble levelling our van. Mark greeted us as soon as we arrived and explained where everything was. The facilities are better than one would expect at a CL, having loo and shower unit plus books and DVDs to borrow whilst on site. The local pub is The 3 Swallows. Contrary to some previous reviews, we found it to be pleasant with friendly service and reasonable food. The pub has been under new ownership since November 2021 so this may explain the earlier poor reviews. The views from The Shieling are lovely, and the walk into Cley village is quick and easy.

Delightful, friendly and peaceful

The Shieling
We have just spent a delightful week at The Shieling and have to say in our three years of caravanning (maybe that’s not long!) this is by far our favourite site to date. We have generally stayed on the bigger Club Sites before but find we much prefer the peace and informality of sites such as this. We were welcomed by Mark on our arrival and he directed us to our pitch - the last remaining one (of five) but certainly one of the best, overlooking beautiful countryside and with views across to the sea. There was quite a slope to the field but extra blocks are provided. The shower/wc was spacious and always spotless and everywhere was extremely well kept and cared for. We have an old dog so the adjacent wooded footpath was a blessing. We had supper at the Three Swallows on two evenings and had perhaps a better experience than some other reviewers - the food was excellent and the service acceptable. If and when we return to Norfolk, we will definitely book into The Shieling.

The Sheiling - Excellent

The Shieling
We stayed for a week in June, the site is spacious away from the hustle and yet close enough to local facilities in Cley. The site sits overlooking miles and miles of quiet countryside. The Shieling is very well maintained including the toilet and shower room. There are no rules on site as such with the friendly owners simply requesting you look after your spot. A real chill out location. Excellent - recommended.

Beautiful, well-kept site.

The Shieling
We've just returned from a fantastic 4 night stay at this CL site. The site is quite large with very spacious pitches for five units and wonderful views across to the north Norfolk coast. The shower and toilet room is also spacious and is spotlessly maintained. For dog owners there is a track just by the entrance which goes through a wooded area by the site and leads to a network of footpaths across the beautiful, surrounding country-side. We received a very warm welcome from Mrs Randell and were able to choose our own pitch and reserve the pitch next to us for my brother, who was arriving later that day. Ramps are needed for motorhomes / campervans due to the sloping nature of the site. Lovely places to visit nearby but, as mentioned in another review, if wanting a pub, avoid 'The Three Swallows' just down the road unless lack-lustre, disinterested and unhelpful service is your thing! Would love to stay at 'The Sheiling' again when next in Norfolk and highly recommend!

Tranquil site on the North Norfolk Coast

The Shieling
We have just returned from a lovely couple of nights away at this CL site. Upon our arrival we were made to feel very welcome by Mark and Lorraine. The site has beautiful views across the rolling countryside, towards the sea. It’s extremely peaceful and the sunsets were amazing. There is a spotlessly clean toilet and shower block and recycling facilities. The walk into Cley takes about 15 minutes along a quite road. We visited the famous deli and smoke house and walked along the coastal path into Sheringham (about 10 miles). Thankfully the Coastal Hopper bus offers an excellent service, so we used that for our return journey! There are three pubs within walking distance. The local, the Three Swallows, was disappointing with patchy service and food (perhaps we visited it on a bad day?) however we later enjoyed a few beers at the Wiveton Bell. The walk back from there is very idyllic and we saw a barn owl. We will certainly be back!
