Why stay here ...
Sandringham Estate Club Site is located in the heart of the Royal Estate. The park boasts more than enough facilities and activities to keep the whole family happy. These include lush walking trails, a land train ride, an adventure playground and a Visitors' Centre complete with tea room, gift shop and Royal Garden flower stall. Sandringham House is the most famous residence of the Royal Family - it is usually closed during the Queen's holiday (end of July and beginning of August) but during the remaining months between Easter and October, the House, Museum and grounds are fully open to visitors, as is the Country Park. Other nearby attractions include the moated country house and National Trust property, Oxborough Hall, located in Swaffham.
The town of King's Lynn is a mere 6 miles away from the Sandringham Estate Club Site and is an attractive and historic harbour town with a great food market on Tuesdays. The caravan park gives you easy access to the lovely Hunstanton, a traditional seaside resort offering the delights of sandy beaches, candy striped cliffs and the fascinating Sea Life Centre.
A mobile fish and chip van visits this site; please ask the site staff for details.

We stayed for a couple of nights (20-21/09) with a specific intention of visiting Sandringham and the gardens. Arrival at the site was warm and welcoming and we quickly found a pitch and set up. As with all sites, had a walk around and found the footpath the Sandringham estate and hatched our plan to get there tomorrow though this route. So, after booking our tickets on line (you have to if you want to see the house and / to the gardens), we set off with what we though would be in plenty of time, that was a mistake. The route to Sandringham starts with a signpost saying "to Sandringham Estate", and that was the last sign we saw. Eventually, using a mix of compass and google maps, we got to an entrance, but on the estate there are no signposts other than at the main entrance. So again, using google maps and then asking anyone we met where the gardens were, we got there. Took us over an hour to get to the main part (where the gardens are) and we could have lost our slot as we were late, but it wasn't to busy and we were let in. In all we walked about 9 miles that day, so be warned if you think it's a simple trek. I would be good if the site could put something together to help people as, on our way back, we are asked numerous times for the directions to Sandringham. Toilet blocks were closed for cleaning with overlapping times, and so there is about 15-20 minutes where you cannot use either of the two blocks. Surely this is a simple fix? Would I stay again, yes, the location is nice, people were nice, facilities ok and best of all are the Squirrels who visit you frequently.
Comment from the Club:
Many thanks for your review. Just to let you know that we have maps available to pick up for free in the Information Room and in the Site Office which mark the way to get to Sandringham Visitor Centre. Also, if you follow the yellow way-marked trail, that also leads you to the Visitor Centre. We hope this helps for next time and please feel free to ask site staff for any help and assistance.
