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.

A rural retreat

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.

Very Pleasant Return

Returned to this very pleasant site after 3 years. Accompanied by grandson who was with us on our first visit, aged 4. He enjoyed the surroundings with horses in the adjoining paddocks, and the large fishing lake. The changes made since our earlier visit were most welcome, with serviced pitches and hard-standings. As always the hosts ensured all was in order. This site is tranquil and pleasantly situated in the countryside. Easy to reach local facilities with Thetford just 15 minutes away. As a base for exploring local facilities, quiet towns, and the vast Thetford forest, this site is ideally situated. Most certainly will return again with our other grandchildren.

Lovely stay

Our first visit to a CL site during July and we had a great stay on this site. We stayed for a week and had an enjoyable time. The site was clean and tidy and Tracey was very friendly and helpful to the extent we were provided with Chinese takeaway menus! They were very laid back about everything which was great. Good location for walks from the site and nice to walk around the fishing lakes. Was also lovely to have nothing but field views and adjacent fields full of horses! Good access to local facilities, local fish and chip / kebab shop only a few minutes away and Chinese takeaway 15 minutes away. Sadly, we didn’t use the local pubs due to the current circumstance. We had numerous walks in various parts of Thetford forest, our dog loved the dog agility at Thetford arboretum which was good fun! We will be returning in the future and would recommend to others.

Lovely site

Enjoyed a very peaceful stay on this site recently and despite the seemingly constant rain the pitch drained very well. The owners are very welcoming and this is certainly a site that we will return to in the future. Having water on each pitch is a real bonus. Would thoroughly recommend.

Peaceful retreat

This is a peaceful CL in the Suffolk countryside, surrounded by Thetford forest, fishing lakes, farmland with horses and sheep nearby and pig farms further up the lane. The area has lovely walking and cycling routes. There is a village about a mile away. The pitches are large on a grass area. We stayed here after plenty of rain but it wasn't muddy, the drainage seems good. Water, toilets, bins and chemical toilet wc all easily accessible. The owners are very nice welcoming people, and there were returning couples which is understandable as it is a very relaxed and pretty place to stay. We would not hesitate to recommend this CL.
