Little gem of a site with lovely warm welcome

The Lodge CL
Just back from a lovely weekend with friends - Tracey provided us with such a lovely warm and friendly welcome, and was well organised in texting us ahead of our arrival with pitch numbers for ourselves and our friends. Although the site looked a little scorched after all the amazing hot sunshine, the hard-standing pitches are nicely level and each has ehu and water which is always a bonus. Slightly smaller than some CL sites we stay at, but the location is just fab for lots of lovely walks - into Thetford Forest, or along the country lane to East Harling (lovely little village and the Nags Head does lovely food). We had 4 dogs between us and our friends, and there is a bespoke dog walk just at the side of the site in the shade of the trees. Plus the ease of access to other walks makes this the perfect site for dog owners - or indeed keen walkers!! Definitely recommend and will hopefully return next year thank you

Relaxing weekend

The Lodge CL
We only live a few miles away but it was great to be away from home in the motorhome and meet up with family for a birthday fishing weekend. Tracy made us very welcome and advised us of the pitch number by text the day before so easy to quickly hook up. Ladies and gents loo and basin was helpful although we have our own facilities. Great walks for the dog on site and in Harling Woods and the boys had fun fishing the lakes. Fish and chips from Harling chippy were excellent and although we didn't bring bikes there is some good biking through the woods and fairly quiet B roads. Peaceful nights sleep and very well kept site.

Great CL with a warm welcome

The Lodge CL
Tracey made us feel very welcome and explained the site and location to us. There is some good walking just out of the gate and Tracey pointed out a local forest camp site where we could stop for coffee part way round the walk. Lovely flat field with a great area for dog walking on site. Hook-up and water on all the pitches, with a separate loo should you require it. All kept lovely and clean and grass cut. The English Whiskey company is a short drive a way and worth a visit/shop We went to the Nags Head in town for food and they welcome dogs. Very friendly.

Lovely peaceful site in good location

The Lodge CL
We were fortunate to spend three nights at this CL last week when the weather was beautiful and unusually warm for March. We went because of the fishing lake, and my husband enjoyed a day fishing on the lake even though he didn't catch anything. The CL is in a good location and you can walk and cycle in Thetford Forest directly from the site. The village of East Harling is a 10 minute walk away and we enjoyed a great meal at the Nags Head pub, which had friendly staff and was dog friendly. We also had a super breakfast at the restaurant a at the English Whiskey distillery in Roundham, which we would thoroughly recommend. We liked this site very much and hope to return again.
