Why stay here ...

Our CL site is situated in quiet, open countryside on land adjoining our coarse fishery (Middle Harling Fisheries) for which weekly and day tickets are available. Due to the close proximity of the lakes young children must be closely supervised. The lakes are pleasant to walk around with a woodland on site and surrounding fields are grazed by horses, sheep and cattle.

The site is in excess of one acre. All pitches are lawned with space for awnings and there is a water supply to each pitch.

East Harling village is approx one mile. It has a local shop with bakery open early until 9pm which also sells newspapers and has a small off licence. There are two public houses each serving food, a Chinese Restaurant/Takeaway and a fish, chips and kebab shop. The village also boasts a butchers, chemist, fire station, doctors and DIY store amongst others. There is a recreation ground, social club and play area nearby. All are within walking distance.

The site is on the edge of Thetford forest with many walks and cycle paths to enjoy.

Places to visit include The English Whisky Distillery and Swallow Aquatics at Roudham, Snetterton Racetrack, Banham Zoo, Bressingham Gardens and Steam Museum, High Lodge at Brandon and Red Lodge karting Centre. If you enjoy car boot sales, both Snetterton and Banham Zoo hold one on a Sunday morning.

Nearby market towns with large supermarkets and shopping include Diss, Thetford, Attleborough and Bury St Edmunds.

Great location for a late autumn getaway....

The Lodge CL
We stayed here for a couple of nights in November, and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Tracey and David were both very welcoming and helpful. The facilities were clean and well maintained. We brought our bikes and the area has lots of quite roads, miles of forest tracks and interesting villages to explore. Our firepit was also welcomed, and was well-used as we settled down to appreciate the starlings(?) and other wild life, in the evenings. A very peaceful site in the midst of some beautiful autumnal countryside. We'll probably be back!

A lovely break

The Lodge CL
We had a lovely few days here in our motorhome and will certainly be back. Tracey was lovely to deal with and the whole experience was positive from start to finish. We particularly liked the on site dog walk which was perfect for a nice little evening stroll and was populated by lots of interesting wildlife. The site is in a lovely area and is adjacent to a fishery which is run by the same owners and this was a real bonus as it made for an interesting and scenic alternative dog walk. The fishermen were pulling out large carp from the well stocked fishery and, needless to say, did not disturb us in the least. The area was a real wildlife haven and we had a Barn Owl right outside out motorhome every night. What a treat! In summary the best thing I can say is that every other person we met here had been coming back here for years. Definite top marks from us.

Geocaching Trip

The Lodge CL
Just had a nice stay at the Lodge CL in Norfolk. We booked a pitch so we could go out walking and on our bikes to look for some Geocaches little did we know that one cache was just outside the CL. Good hard standing but we did have to put the van on chocks to level up and did have trouble getting a signal for the sat dish but got a internet connection so I did see the football. Very friendly owners and a very quiet area so no problem riding the bikes on the local lanes. Some fantastic old churches around one just 800 meters from the site and yes it does have a Geocache that we found even if it was a tricky one to locate. Would use again if in the area.

A rural retreat

The Lodge CL
This site is great - running water in a CL! It's well tucked away in Norfolk. One thing to be aware of; the access roads are narrow with passing places. The owners are very friendly (also caravanners, so understand) and nothing seems to be too much for them. As an example, the entry into the field has been changed and the old entrance is now a pitch. When we arrived, there had been a week of rain, and as we came through the new entrance we gouged deep grooves with both car and van in the mud. I was mortified, but by the next day the entrance had been repaired and covered with stone chips so that not only was our damage gone but everyone else could come and go without causing further damage. The pitches themselves are neatly spaced along a fence with open fields on one side and the lakes on the other. They are actually hard standing and lovely and flat, so very easy to use. There are loos by the entrance but as we we always camp self-contained so I can't comment on them.
