Such a wonderful site

Old School House
Part of me doesn't really want to write this review for fear making this lovely site so popular we can never get a pitch again. To star,t Max is very friendly and knows lots of details about the local area and gave us a friendly welcome and ensures the site is clean tidy and we'll maintained. The grass is free draining and dries out very quickly so little risk of the site becoming a mud bath. The A47 is behind the site but we never heard it at all and to be honest couldn't believe how close we actually were, so don't let that put you off. The site offers hookup and water to each pitch with grey going into the hedges. The chemical emptying point is something entirely different, never seen anything like it, so simple and yet so perfect, so much better than those funnel points that are nearly everywhere. The dog field is the same size as the main site and totally secure and an excellent addition in our mind. As soon as we can find some dates in our diary well be looking to go back.

Beautiful site, lovely welcome, great facilities

Old School House
One of the best CLs we've been on, choice of grass or hardstanding, clean, well tended and with good facilities and a very friendly welcome. We had a super couple of days cycling on great quiet, level country lanes down to Downham Market and across to Wisbech and up to Long Sutton. Only 4 stars for peace and tranquility as the A47 does create some traffic noise but wouldn't stop us going back. Found an amazing local butchers shop on the way to Downham Market - Sargeants, opposite an equally good farm shop, so ideal for stocking up on local produce - both worth a detour. We would definitely come again if we're touring East Anglia again.

Superb

Old School House
What a superb site this is. The camping area offers spacious level pitches, each with its own water supply and the usual shared EHU bollards (the full 16 amps too). The chemical waste point is unusual (well, I’ve not seen one quite like it anyway) but proved to be very easy and clean to use in practice. Much better than those enormous funnel things on the main Club sites. The dog exercise area is as big as the main camping area, and the whole site is well laid out and immaculately maintained. The rural location is very picturesque with views of the church across the next field. Opening the blinds in the morning to find the horse looking at you over the hedge is priceless. We didn’t use the toilet/shower but did have a peek, and it’s a good size and very clean. Max the owner is charming and very helpful, and obviously works hard to maintain the high standard. Attention to detail is good too, even down to the welcome note waiting for you when you arrive on your pitch. I can’t fault this site, and am already booking our next visit.

Outstanding campsite

Old School House
This was our first visit and are sure to return. Max is very welcoming and runs a great site. It is the most organised, well run site we have been on. We were given clear instructions on phoning. On arrival our pitch was marked with our name and a welcome note attached to a letter box where monies could be left in case Max was unable to collect. Each pitch has water and everything is well tended, including the separate, secure, dog field. There is an information hut with local info and book swap. We didn't use the shower and loo but it looked clean and tidy. Walking pretty easy from site to nearby village. Would highly recommend and site is priced to accommodate everyone's pocket.

Great owner

Old School House
We stayed here at the beginning of June and spent a very enjoyable 3 nights. The site is well run and well located for Wisbech and Kings Lynn. Be warned, the traffic into Kings Lynn can be appalling at holiday times. Max, the site owner was very helpful in suggesting alternative routes and places to visit. Which brings me to the reason for writing this review (my first) - Max, was so outstanding, friendly, helpful and chatty (!), she made our stay all the more enjoyable. Thank you Max!
