Tranquil site on the North Norfolk Coast

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!

Full marks to the Randell’s

Just returned from a week here. Very impressed with the CL’s Covid regime with hand sanitizers available at all the relevant locations. We were allocated pitch 5 which suffers from a considerable slope both front to back and side to side. Mark was extremely helpful when I asked if I could reposition the van and came to my rescue with some levelling ramps. Site is sheltered with a wood on two sides, a high hedge on another and an open rail fence providing beautiful views across the valley in the Wells direction and the sunset. Site access is straightforward but care is needed on the suggested approach down the lane from Holt as the entrance on the left is set back from the road on a bend. We drove passed and had to turn round which caused some problems to local traffic! Would recommend particularly if you can secure one of the four pitches at the top of the slope.

Excellent CL

This is our second visit to the Sheilings; such a lovely cl with great views! Received a lovely welcome from Lorraine. The CL is very well kept and peaceful. Had a fantastic few days stay. Visiting Cley, Morston and Blackney. Recommend Wiveton Bell for a meal but you need to book before hand. Thank you for a excellent stay and see you in May next year. Sally and John

Long weekend anniversary break! Perfect site

Absolutely fantastic few days at this wonderful find! From our first email to arriving in site, brilliant communication. The site itself was perfect, on arrival after about twenty minutes the site owner Lorraine came over and made us feel very welcome. The Randell’s have Got this just right.... the shower room is extra £1 but it has everything you need, even extra toiletries if you’ve forgotten anything! We’re great walkers and this site is just lovely and in a perfect location for Cley, where there’s the most gorgeous delicious deli ! Fish smoke house and pub for a swift pint on the way back! We had lunch at The Wiveton Bell which took us twenty minutes or so to walk to.. just lovely! Will we be back?. Oh yes! Thank you to The Randell’s ! We had a perfect long weekend Hope you have a well deserved break for winter.. see you next year! Lots of love from Ali & Steve Dyer And Brie the lab 🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾

We couldn’t ask for more!

This is one of the most peaceful CL’s we have ever stayed on, there is a road but no noise from it at all. Lovely views and the whole site beautifully kept - grass regularly mown so no mess in the van. The Randell’s have thought of everything to make their visitors stay easy and welcoming, even spare toiletries in the shower room if needed! Walking into Cley is only 15 mins, the deli there has lovely produce but there’s a Spar in Blakeney for general groceries. We discovered just before we left that the Budgens supermarket in Holt has a coin operated washing machine and tumble dryer which would be very useful for a longer stay. Thank you Mark and Lorraine for a wonderful two weeks.
