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.

Great location ! Excellent for Dog walkers !, one of the best !

Well this was our first visit here which is strange as we only live 25 mins from Sandringham and never thought of staying here , we have had day visits to Sandringham in the past but just used the car parks at the Sandringham House welcome centre. So we decided to stay overnight at the Club site and it was great. Arrived on Sat 24th Nov , welcomed by the warden , who gave us a wealth of information about the site and the surrounding area , and told us to choose our own pitch (top half of site and toilet block closed for winter, but you can still walk up round there). Chose pitch 77 which was a hard standing with a slight slope , quickly evened up with my levelling blocks (we have a motor home). Good pitch , there was actually loads and loads to choose from as they were not busy, we were close to toilet block and next to woods with a path leading into them straight outside our pitch. We were lucky with the weather and it was sunny on the Sat and Sun and we spent most of the time walking our Weimaraner through the acres of woodland that are available straight from the site , and being that it is so vast you hardly see anyone , its like having your own private woods !. The site itself was clean and tidy (they were still cutting grass when we were there !) , toilet block fine (two showers out of order, but due to site being quiet did not affect us). Quiet and friendly atmosphere about the site , lovely walks to Sandringam , and if you go further afield , you have Hunstanton and other coastal towns on your doorstep , or go the other way and Kings Lynn is just down the road. Spoke to the warden about leaving on the Sunday , and they said as it was not busy just leave when we like , but let them know first , which was great not having to rush to leave on time. My only one gripe was that when I tried to book , it said no pitches without awning available ? Well there definitely was when we were there, there were 4 available , but never mind, just a small point. Anyhow what a great site and we will be returning soon

A really lovely site

I've stayed here before and I'll stay here again. Excellent location with lots of walking from the caravan door and ideal for dogs. Friendly, and very helpful wardens and clean facilities.

So on arrival....

Yes well..so on arrival which was 16.11.18 -- 23.11.18 we were hoping to head towards the top end of this site.We have visited before and prefer that particular area as we have a dog and walking in the forest is near and handy..but no it wasn't to be.A female warden informed us the top end being approx. 25% of the site was cordoned off due to a rally being held that weekend.So obviously we feeling disappointed and a tad annoyed that perhaps we could have been e-mailed and informed of the rally..considering we had booked in advance..and saved us a journey/booked another site.We then drove around the site and found very few pitches to chose from and it was chaotic to say the least.Therefore we decided to leave with a refund and booked in at a beautiful C L site just up the road where the owners attitude and welcome was a refreshing change to what we had just experienced from the Sandringham site.

Disappointing

The top toilet block was shut and in the bottom toliet block 2 out of 6 showers in the gents were closed, leaving only 4 in use 45% of the sites capacity. Age of toilet blocks is not a major issue so long as they are clean. They felt grubby and unloved. The TV booster system was prone to cutting out. The WIFI is appalling, just checking E Mails and surfing were at times impossible. For a prestige site, I am afraid it is in real need of improvement. However the location and the peace and quiet of the site were as always magical.
