welcoming site

Shrublands
We stayed for over a week at this quiet site and would return again if in this area. The site is very quiet and caravans are well spaced with green partitions between. The grass is short and clippings are collected,{none of that dried grass clinging to shoes and caravan floor}. The use of water next to caravan was great and the waste water drained into the shrubs that surround the site. The site was a bit untidy but I think, because of it, the variety of birds to be seen from the caravan was great. The downside was there was no recycling on site, but everything had to be taken to a recycling point a couple of miles away. The owners were often on site and if you wanted they were willing to talk, but not intrusive. Plenty of places to visit in the area and the beaches were lovely, even though often a good walk away from either the car park or in case of Wells Next To The Sea.

Enjoyable stay

Shrublands
We visited this site in April and we find it an ideal site for us as it has EHU and water to every pitch. With Covid, and using own facilities, having your own water tap was ideal. The site is in a very good position for seeing north Norfolk, we have booked for next April again. The pub down the road is good for food and a drink. I feel the previous review has been unfair to the site. We have visited Shrublands many times, and have seen gradual improvements to the site. The owners are very friendly. As for phone signal, we are Vodafone and have never had a problem with a signal.

Shrublands - odd one out

Shrublands
All the previous reviews sing the praises of Shrublands but unfortunately I’m the odd one out as there are too many downsides. It is peaceful, village location and within walking distance of the pub and plenty of POI. The site and it surrounds need a good dose of tlc, at the moment it looks like Something akin to Steptoe’s yard. There is no WiFi and no telephone signal. The toilet and shower have no heating so unusable at this time of the year. Above all IMO it’s not worth £18/night. It is very unlikely that we will return

Garden site

Shrublands
This site is great, each pitch is surrounded by greenery on three sides giving a real sense of privacy. Tubs of colourful flowers add colour, also the water point on each pitch is so convenient. There is also a shower and separate loo. Wells-Next-The-Sea is easily accessed by car, there is also an hourly bus service throughout the day with the bus stop at the bottom of the track. We had a lovely week here and hope to return.

Lovely site, lovely location

This was our easter holiday this year. Lovely site, we fed the birds too like another reviewer said. Toilet and separate shower. Basic but clean. Wash up area. Loads of places to visit nearby. Really enjoyed this trip. Thank you
