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.

First time at Sandringham and loved it.

Easy access to the site and managed to find a lovely pitch away from the road. Peaceful location and great for walking to Sandringham through the woods. We also visited the Royal Station which is privately owned but open to the public in the afternoons. It's free and well worth a look. The staff had a for sale table which was fortuitous for me as I had just lost an overtaking mirror on the way and managed to pick one up for £1.00. Staff were friendly and the site was sheltered from the wind.

Lovely site well kept.

You will like the site very much. Revisited September and pitched near the trees. We were offered a pitch swap the following day if we wanted but decided to stay where we were. Big mistake. It was windy most days and the caravan, awning and car got covered in Autumn debris - inside and out with the roof insect blinds catching a great deal. The site is very well kept and managed but also suffers early arrivals like any other club site. The afternoon cleaning of the facilities blocks is better for us and the club stated, LAST year, it was rolling this time change out across the network but we haven't seen it happen at other sites we have visited. The route to Sandringham is very, very poorly way marked and we came across a few confused (not yet lost) souls so check the route before your first foray from the site. There are numerous places to visit. Supermarkets include ASDA (undergoing petrol station rebuild) nearby with huge Sainsburys and Tesco closer to Kings Lynn and part of a very big, with very busy roads, retail / business park. We will return, even if there are loads of roundabouts on the East West route.

Sandringham, a lovely site

We visited The Sandringham site and spent a fantastic 7 days in Norfolk. The chip van visits 3 times a week and the ice cream van visits on Saturday and Sunday. A lovely site, in a beautiful area. The wardens were very pleasant and helpful and even had a quote of the day outside the reception. The toilet and showers are kept clean and cleaned in the afternoon. We visited Sandringham House, paid extra and had the guided tour of the garden and the walled garden. We also visited Oxburgh Hall, a beautiful moated manor. This site is now on our must return to list.

Lovely Site will definitely be returning

We stayed at this site for a week towards the end of the summer holidays. We got a pitch up near the play park. The pitch was lovely and roomy (ours backed onto the dog walking area) with plenty of space at the rear of the van to sit out in the sunshine, have a BBQ etc. Our 2 children enjoyed being near the play area, and at one point asked why we were going out that day because they wanted to play for longer! Shower block was up to normal club standards, nicely clean and functional whenever we used them. Onsite Fish and Chip van was very tasty and would recommend a visit to them. Also, for several days during our stay an ice-cream van visited the site at around 6pm we didn’t visit the van ourselves however there were plenty of people stopping him on his way round. If you are visiting the site make sure you have plenty of insect repellent spray and citronella. While we were there we were plagued by gnat type insects that seemed to like the taste of us! This is just nature and cannot be helped by anything than being better prepared. All in all a really nice week and we will definitely be visiting again.
