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.

Quiet and comfortable

Quiet three night stay in December 2020. Facilities good and clean. Also the Covid19 issues were well managed, and we felt quite safe. Easy, I guess, since the site wasn’t busy. The fish and chip van visit was a bonus- they were good too. Pleasant walk to the Sandringham visitor centre. Plenty of forest walks! We also went on an enjoyable bike ride which was recommended from the club website. The only annoyance, as ever, is having to pay for the site WiFi. Be aware that the phone 4g signal is very poor. Little interaction with site staff - but that was friendly and efficient.

A nice peaceful stay

This was our first visit to Sandringham. I would like to point out the check in, politeness of the wardens and their friendliness was top class. The site is easy to access and the toilet blocks are immaculate. However, please be aware that the site is quite sloped in places and you will probably need numerous blocks to get your unit level. I saw a caravan with it's leg fully extended on one side and then on a block around 8 inches in height!! It didn't look very safe to me. I was lucky when we arrived as the site was practically empty so chose a plot that although a lot better than the rest of them, I still needed a tyre leveller and wound the legs to the full on one side to get level. Beyond dusk, the site is full of bunnies and they like to burrow so even though the wardens inform you of this, please be aware when you head to the toilet block after dark. Some of them are quite deep!! Having said this, it was peaceful and quiet and close to some lovely beaches. Try Snettisham to walk. Absolutely lovely beach, and the dog liked it too! The Fish and Chip van who visited on the Friday evening was top class. Freshly cooked, big portions! No Wifi at all, which isn't a problem if you don't need a TV, phone etc!

Lovely site.

We’ve been to this site for the past ten years and have never been disappointed. Visited 4-10-20 for 6 nights. When visiting the site in October it’s normally quite quiet and not many outfits but this time due to the strange times we’re living in it was very busy, having said that it was still so peaceful and quiet. We had mixed weather but still visited Hunstanton, Brancaster, Snettisham, Heacham and Kings Lynn. Holkham Hall is well worth a visit even just to walk around the grounds. The pay & display car park for Brancaster beach is dreadful so beware, it’s full of huge pot holes and if they’re full of water you don’t know that till it’s too late!! Site very tidy as always, lovely polite wardens.

Ideal location

This site was chosen as a base for our bird watching weekend. It was ideal in every way. It was safe and well organised re Covid, a quiet, peaceful and attractive site, friendly fellow campers, perfect on site catering (normally we would cook in the van but after a days birdwatching we were too tired so opted for the easy option. Fish and chips one night and a pizza the next. Both freshly cooked and tasty)

Lovely site

As with all club sites we have visited, the site is very well maintained and the staff are friendly and helpful. There are some great woodland walks from the site and very easy to walk to the Sandringham estate. We were lucky enough to spot some deer on are walks while staying at the site.
