Why stay here ...

Buttercup Meadow is the ideal coastal site if you are looking for peace and tranquillity. It is only a short stroll from beautiful, quiet, sandy beaches.

With only 5 pitches in an acre you will have plenty of space to relax and enjoy the sea views. Next to Buttercup Meadow is our 4 acre hay field which is home to deer, foxes, hedgehogs and birdlife. Watch the sunrise and the sunset in this haven.

There are wonderful walks and cycle lanes to follow. Or just take a stroll along the prom to the local pub 'The Poacher's Pocket' and enjoy a delicious meal overlooking the sea. The village has a renowned fish & chip shop, a cafe which serves home-made food - breakfast and lunches, a Chinese and Turkish restaurant. The local shop and post office sells almost everything including a good selection of wines and beers.

A few miles' drive will take you to the Broads - hire a boat for the day and explore this unique environment of lakes and waterways dating back to the middle ages. The picturesque towns of Cromer and Sheringham are also close by.

Simply the best

Buttercup Meadow
There are so many positive reviews for Buttercup Meadow I shan’t repeat them all but endorse every one of them. Staying here is a wonderful experience only marred by having to call an emergency ambulance to the site. Leaving my wife alone and not knowing when I will be back was very worrying and stressful. We need not have worried. Tom, the owner, was so very helpful and supportive to my wife in my absence as were other guests on the site. Tom even offered for us to leave the caravan on site if necessary or, indeed, for him to move it to another local location on our behalf. Absolutely amazing support at a very stressful time for us both. We can’t thank him enough. We were very sad to leave but will be back! Thanks, Tom, and the other guests present who may read this review.

really good site

Buttercup Meadow
Buttercup meadow is a lovely site......peaceful and large enough to not be on top of one another. You may need levelling ramps and as yet there are no hard standings but these are minor things.The proximity of the wonderful beach,several cafes,a chinese take away,a fish and chip shop....it is a hidden haven and Thomas is a pleasant chap too! Eden garage opposite the Sugar and Spice cafe were very obliging when our motorhome developed a leaky oil filter!

Lovely location, close to the beach, sea views

Buttercup Meadow
Lovely open field, with just enough elevation to be able to see the sea from your pitch. Quiet gravel lane leads to beach, 5 minutes walk away. The beach is golden sand, man made as a sea defense, but looks totally natural. No hook up, but that's no problem, all other normal facilities good and well organised, and good to have proper recycling facilities. Didn't see the owner, having booked and paid online, which made things easy, (be great if CAMC could help facilitate an online booking and payment system for all CLs). Short walk to the shop and excellent chippy!

Tranquil Buttercup Meadow

Buttercup Meadow
We got a lovely welcome from Tom and Wendy, it was the start of a lovely weekend. Walks to the beautiful beach and relaxing in the peaceful field. It's an "off grid" location but has everything you basically need, water, waste disposal and information leaflets. Got local made cakes from the "superstore" just down the road, that were yummy. We were very lucky , the weather was glorious and we walked with the dogs to the long sandy beach, just 5 minutes walk, which even in height of season was very quiet. Lots of wild birds with the natural habitats which have been left unspoilt. With only 2 caravans, 2 motorhomes and us, we didn't feel crowded in, something we have not been used to because we usually go to more commercial camps, but not any more. We will definitely be returning. And probably more often because it is so reasonable, they only charge for the van, and no hidden charges. A little bit of paradise for us....in fact, not really sure I should be sharing this little gem right on the coast.
