Well kept compact site, good location

We stayed here for 10 nights in late September 2020. This is a very compact CL. The owner has sensibly reduced the number of units to four, to allow for decent space between vans during the Covid pandemic. Mr & Mrs Elliott are very friendly and welcoming. Hand sanitising spray is provided close to the service point. Good water pressure, plenty of bins (including recycling). TV reception was non-existent for us with our omni-directional built in aerial, but a separate aerial on a pole might possibly achieve some reception. WiFi (BT with a password, provided) was Ok on a laptop but dropped out frequently and could not be found on our older iPhone or iPad. The CL is well sheltered by trees and hedges, but in the event of gales it would be sensible not to park too close to the trees on the far side of the field from the entrance – we had set up our caravan well out from the edge, but in a big storm we still had many small branches torn off the trees and hitting the roof of the van. There is a pub on the edge of Hicking Broad within a 10 – 15 minute walk. Basic pub grub but a good garden with views of boats and water. We had laundry done at a service wash laundrette in Wroxham. There is a Tesco supermarket plus fuel at Stalham, about 10 minute drive away. The location is good for visiting Broads attractions - Wroxham / Hoveton for boat hire and trips and the famous Roys Department store and excellent supermarket is 12 miles South West; Norwich (which has a Park & Ride service) is 18 miles SW; Great Yarmouth (if you like that sort of thing - amusement arcades with a pier but brilliant sandy beach) is 16 miles South; Horsey Broad (NT - Wind Pump, seal colony and bird watching) is 7 miles away. There are many attractive Broads in the area where access to the water can be found by following any sign containing the word “Staithe”. With research there are excellent pubs to be found – many close to water. We ate out at several of these and also visited the Station Smoke House at Hoveton which is heaven for meat lovers. Portions are HUGE. As we have found elsewhere it is unfortunate that some members still feel it acceptable to allow their dog(s) to roam freely off the lead on a CL. We did not enjoy discovering the resultant deposit behind our van, by the water carrier....

Tidy Quiet site

A lovely small CL site with mown flat lawn. A nice welcome from the owner. Easy entry and everything at hand. Nice to walk to the pub on the Broads for a drink. Quiet and peaceful. Only one night for us but its perfect and great value.

Great location

This was our first visit to Heath Barn and very pleased we were to have selected and stayed. Easy entry, easy parking, electric hook up, water, peace and quiet. 45 minute walkable to Stalham (Tesco & selection of shops etc). Walkable to the Hickling broad - only spoil was the English weather ..... rain ! . Great site at a great price.

Fantastic site

We stayed her for a week and had a really lovely time. If you are after quiet and beauty you can not go wrong staying here.The owners were really nice, friendly and helpful. The site was well maintained and spacious. The site is located on the edge of the village and it is easy to get the daily bus into Stalham, Great Yarmouth, Norwich (excluding Sunday) For car owners it is a fantastic base to explore North East of Norfolk. The broads is within a 10minute walk, and we spent a lot of time watching the boats coming and going. There is a lot of wildlife around the area, as well as a nature reserve, this is definitely a photographers dream. In the village there are two pubs, The Greyhound (Hickling Green) and The Pleasure Boat Inn (Hickling Broad) Both pubs serve really lovely food., but if you are walking home from either pub after dark do take a torch!! There is no shop in Hickling as such, although you may get basic essentials at "The Pleasure Boat Inn" who do have a little shop café open all day. Stalham is 3miles away and we had a lovely bike ride on lovely quite roads where there is a Tesco's, butchers, greengrocers and several newsagents plus other cute shops and pubs. We highly recommend this site and will definitely visit again.

A week in the broads

The site was well kept friendly welcome one of the good things about this site is that you are shaded from a lot of the wind by the trees but on the other hand some of the branches needed cutting back the accesses to the site is very good i would use it again the only two things was the bins needed emptying more often as on several accessions the bins where full and the re cycle bin we even had to use a black bin bag to use as a extra re cycle bin and the other thing witch i think needs looking at is the toilet drop and the drinking water are a bit to close to one and other or maybe some form of divider between them or am i to fussy must of been past by the club but all in all a nice site.
