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. 

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.

Five star CL

The Stables
Little to add to the previous reviews. Totally agree that this is a fantastic CL with all the excellent facilities that you need for a great caravan experience. Fantastic hosts who are extremely welcoming, without being intrusive and who do all they can to ensure that you have a great time.

Great return visit

The Stables
Lovely CL, this was our second visit! Beautiful setting with generously sized pitches, great hosts who were very friendly and helpful. Facilities are still some of the cleanest and well kept that we've experienced in over 25 years of caravanning. Perfect location for visiting the surrounding area. Lots of space for the kids to play, good pubs nearby. Would highly recommend this site. Oh we almost forget the sunsets! Paul, Kerry and family.

Excellent site, spacious pitches

The Stables
Lovely site owned by a very friendly couple. Bathroom and toilet is new and very very clean. Huge flat pitches in beautiful surroundings. Local roads are flat with easy cycling to explore the local villages. Paul and Suzanne really care and have worked very hard - you can see this everywhere on the site. We love sitting outside on our huge pitch listening to the birds, so relaxing. Thank you Paul and Suzanne for a lovely stay

Outstanding CL

The Stables
We booked this site after searching the CAMC CL sites to fit with our plans, we were not disappointed at all. Sue & Paul are owners who go above and beyond to make you feel welcome on their site. It’s clear a lot of thought and effort has gone in to designing and building the site and that it has been done by people who use sites themselves. The surprise were the immaculate toilet and shower facilities, on top of the pitches that come with waste water, fresh water and EHU. Ideal for dog walkers as it is exceptionally dog friendly, the grass areas look like centre court at Wimbledon. We cannot speak highly enough of The Stables, if you’re looking for somewhere in Norfolk as a base, or just for a chill out, then we highly recommend it. We will most definitely be back, Sue and Paul make you feel like old friends visiting. Giving the top rating it deserves, we’ll done Sue & Paul and thank you for a great stay.

First trip with our first caravan

The Stables
We agree with all the comments about the pitches, facilities, surroundings etc. - all fantastic. We found Suzanne and Paul very helpful with lots of top tips from their experience with caravans, without being 'you don't want to do it like that' or pushy.
