Spacious CL site

The Midden
We have recently visited this site. Its quite large and surrounded by trees, but always get sun during the day. The site is approximately 25 mins walk into Wells-at-the-sea (depending how fast you walk). You could easy miss the entrance to this site, but its only a very short distance from the recycling plant. The site is near a main road, but this wasn't a problem with noise. We didn't see Mr Beale on our visit, but this seems to be the case on some CL sites. Money to be left in post box. I will say it would be nice to receive confirmation of payment at some stage. Mr. & Mrs Wilkins

Flying Geese

The Midden
Spent 4 nights in late Sept in Motorhome. 15 min walk to buses and to town and 30 to seafront. Really good basic CL. Worth walking around the field as some ehu tucked into corner We used the private stop on the light railway which goes to Walsingham. Only goes that way not into town Enjoyed the pink footed geese flying overhead in v formation and saw deer and heard tawny owl Easy access to rest of coast in car or on bus

Don't be put off by the name of the site.

The Midden
This site, as well as the area, was a very pleasant surprise. We stayed a week, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The site is close to Wells-next-the-sea, as well as several other small towns and local attractions. One bonus was that the owner has produced a history of the site, and although I never got to finish it, it is fascinating. The Midden, as its name suggest, is a former waste site. But don't let that put you off, because it is a beautiful site. The only negative I can put for the site is the fact that it is so easy to miss the entrance. While easily wide enough to get your car and caravan/motorhome in, it is very easy to miss the entrance altogether (We did). That aside, a site we would happily go back to.

A great CL

The Midden
This CL has it all for us. Easy access into Wells, peaceful and well looked after. Access to the site is good, just look for the entrance on the left after you pass the recycling centre. If you are there for more than a few days ask the owner for his copy of the history of the Midden. A fascinating read!

Perfect

The Midden
Once again we return to The Midden, I cannot fault this CL in any way. Even in the height of season it is ideally located to remain peaceful. Perfect for walking, cycling, ornithology or just relaxing. Great bus routes give access along the North Norfolk coast.
