Why stay here ...

The Stables CL is a large family run site in the grounds of our home, located in the meadow in front of our newly renovated cottage with beautiful views across the fields, where you can enjoy peace and quiet and a restful stay. There is plenty of wildlife to be seen including deer, owls and in season the swallows to name but a few.

We are open all year round and welcome well behaved dogs and children.

Our large, flat pitches positioned in the old paddocks all have full services including 16amp hook-up, water tap and grey water drains.

Onsite we have chemical waste disposal point, refuse and recycling points, a visitor information board and a washing machine available upon request. With our new Shower/WC room completing in August.

We are conveniently located in the quiet village of Forncett St Peter which provides a central location from which to explore all the unspoilt beauty that Norfolk has to offer. The Norfolk Broads, famous for the wonderful sand beaches and coastline, the City of Norwich with it’s historic castle, Thetford Forest and the market towns of Wymondham, Diss and Harleston are just a sample of what a holiday in Norfolk has to offer and can be accessed easily from The Stables.

We are very fortunate to have multiple public footpaths in each direction from the site and an abundance of country roads for a leisurely bike ride or keen cyclists among you.

We are a short walk from the local pub ’The Jolly Farmers’ 3/4 mile with ‘The Boars’ in Spooner Row; both offering quality ale and delicious food. Our local shop in Bunwell is 2 miles away, with Days Garage and Fuel Station, and Supermarkets, Train Station, The Abbey and Market town in Wymondham 5 miles everything is close at hand.

Advanced booking required. For further information please call or email and join us in the Norfolk countryside where a warm welcome is assured and for the start of what we hope will be many visits.

Shower and toilet facilties all fully functioning.

Friendly CL

The Stables
Lovely friendly CL, owners and their daughter all very pleasant and welcoming. Facilities spotless, several walks or cycling on your doorstep. Easy access to the coast, Lowestoft was lovely but if you prefer something busier and closer, Great Yarmouth is even closer. We can also recommend the local Chinese which is less than a 3 minute drive away, very tasty treat for a last night stay. Thank you Paul, Sue and family for such a lovely stay.

What a great place to stay

The Stables
Thank you Sue and husband for creating such a fabulous CL. It is up there with the best, and we've seen a few. The site and surroundings were just superb for us, especially with our two dogs in the adjoing paddock. Your shower/toilet facilities were excellent. Hope you enjoy continued success for all the effort you have put i. Steve & Annie Beesley

Lovely CL

The Stables
We are just home from a 2 night stay at this lovely CL. The owners were very welcoming. The pitches are fully serviced, there is plenty of space between them. It was so easy to pitch up. The facilities are great, we have been to a few CL and this has the best yet. We will definitely be back.

Fantastic CL can't recommend enough!

The Stables
The Stables is a fantastic CL Site! The owners Sue and Paul are so welcoming and helpful. All pitches are fully serviced and the facilities onsite are like a hotel. There's a notice board with local information and maps of local walks, things to do etc, which we found very helpful. The site is dog and child friendly and there is also a washing machine onsite that can be used. I cannot recommend this CL enough. Will definitely be back! Julie and Paul
