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.

Yet another great stay

When we arrived reception was very busy but, because of the friendly welcome and the efficient process of registering it did not take long. We found a suitable hard standing pitch, unfortunately we didn't notice it was close to a dog walk, and got set up. As always, the site is in very good condition. The facilities were perfectly clean at all times. Whenever we met one of the staff they were always friendly and helpful. We had one small problem towards the end of our stay and it was resolved quickly. During our stay there were 2 or 3 events on in the Sandringham Estate which made our stay interesting. We shall definitely be back

Lovely site for coast and woodland hills

Our third visit to this lovely site beautifully situated in woodland with a 40 minute walk to Sandringham House through the woods to see Liz and Phil.Site wardens friendly and helpful and site kept well although toilet/shower facilities in need of upgrade.Good choice of pitches giving you the option of shade or sun.Old Hunstanton Cromer Sherringham and Wells next the sea all within a maximum 60 minute drive (suggest for Wells go via Fakenham as coastal road not good). Heacham beach worth a visit for a quiet beach suggest South beach as you can road park free, unlike North beach which offers a rather expensive car park!.Both offer basic facilities including café. One of our favourite sites and will return.

Lovely Site in a Great Location

Sandringham Club site is in an ideal location, with easy access from all main routes and providing visitors with all the attractions of Norfolk's coast and countryside, as well as Sandringham House itself. The welcome at reception is warm and helpful, with information on both the site and local amenities. The Information Room is packed with all that you could want to make the most of your stay. Pitches are consistently generous in size, and a lot of work has gone into making them as level as possible on what is a sloping location. However, many pitch surfaces and grassed surrounds are beginning to look a little worn, reflecting the popularity of this site. Water, power, refuse and waste water disposal are all within easy reach, at the usual high standard of Club sites. There are two shower/toilet blocks which are more than adequate for the numbers using them, and they are cleaned and maintained to the normal high standards we see elsewhere on Club sites. However, these too are starting to look a little "tired" and along with the pitches, would benefit from the refurbishment and upgrades we have seen recently on other sites on our travels. All staff were unfailingly polite and helpful and are a valuable asset to the site and the Club. One negative note from this particular stay that I must confess to having already mentioned in other reviews, but is important. We continue to see an increasing number of drivers who seem unable to adhere to the 5 mph speed limit when driving on the site. I am not referring to those who might "drift" between 5 - 10 mph, but to those who appear to think that they and others are still safe when they are doing 15 - 20 mph, whether in a "solo" car, a motorhome, or even towing a caravan. This trend has, I feel, reached the stage where perhaps the Club should consider instructing all wardens to remind drivers of the 5 mph speed limit on site when they arrive and register for a stay. This is overall a lovely site in a beautiful semi-woodland setting, in a great location, offering something for all. The enjoyment and peace and quiet is a major feature, and with the type of refurbishment of pitches and shower/toilet blocks we are seeing on Club sites elsewhere, we feel that Sandringham would easily maintain, and enhance, its reputation as a "flagship" Club site. It is genuinely one of our favourites - witnessed by the fact that next month we are scheduled for our third visit this year. We heartily recommend it to you.

Lovely site

This is a lovely site but a lot of pitches suffer from lesser levels of sunlight due to the overgrown trees. You can be lucky and get a pitch that's in the sun for the whole day. We found that there are no markings on the shower taps and temperature controls which makes it difficult to choose which way to operate them. That's it so far as gripes go. The site is within a very pleasant walking distance to Sandringham house (for those who are capable) and there is the café and restaurant outside the formal gardens for those who do not wish to visit the house or gardens or those with dogs in tow. The amount of access in the estate is huge. Supermarkets are in abundance just outside King's Lynn and there is a medium sized Asda, with fuel station, even closer at South Wooton. The site shop has the basics and more, including Calor and those cream teas which are excellent value and rather tasty, you know. And not to forget the hard working staff who are brilliant.

Wet but relaxing

Have recently returned home from an 8night stay .Not the club's fault it rained...a lot . Sandringham is a lovely friendly, relaxing site. Have to agree with other reviews regarding the facility blocks they are a bit tired , but perfectly adequate. The site is ideal for M/H's as the buses for Kings Lynn and Hunstanton stop right outside .Those not of a certain age the return fare to KL is £4.50 return , cheaper than parking . Would we return again ..most definitely , have already booked for next year.
