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.

Woodland paradise and natural

The Sandringham Estate Caravan Club Site
We stayed 2 nights recently at this location, and absolutely loved it. The staff were friendly and helpful. There was an abundance of information on were to go from the site. Castle Rising is a charming little spot (very short cycle ride, but across the main ride at one point) with a tea room, pub and clothing boutique. There is a social club that can walk to through the woods, so yes, cheaper priced drinks than in a pub. Social club looks like a ranch type building with a verandah around. Nice walk to Sandringham estate, but book online if you want to see the house and gardens. Fish n chip van Monday, Wed & Friday and I think there is a pizza van on the Thursday. We didn't try these as we took our own food. Only thing I would say is PIGEONS. I thought they looked very innocent and cute during the day, but at night they jump on the roof ...lol...well tap dance, so if you can get a kite replica to stick on the roof to deter them at would be all well and good, otherwise be prepared for the tap dancing pigeons or invest in some earplugs. Saying that, we didn't have that many pigeons land on the roof by the sounds of it. No more than on or two. Loved the site, and would good back in a heart beat

Top site

The Sandringham Estate Caravan Club Site
We stayed here from the 31/7/21 to 1/8/2021. First let me get the negativity out of the way, Internet/WIFI, terrible. I paid for a weeks connection at £11 and managed 2 hours of connection and yes the pitches do slope slightly, but easily rectified. What a very helpful and lovely team of Wardens, I say "Team" as that is exactly what they all are working together to make sure the visitors get the best support/advice/guidance they can, and I know that if there wasn't something available in the site shop, Sue, had offered to collect it for them from her own shopping trip and deliver it to the Caravan/Motorhome door, I know this as I ran out of Potatoes and she offered to get me some that night whilst out. The site is lovely and clean, bright and the toilets are spotless, I used the Disabled toilet each time and the facilities available were exactly what was needed for me, and when we arrived, due to my disability, 3 different Wardens came over to ask my hubby and I if we needed help setting up, such a friendly team,. All in all a great stay, Kings Lynn literally a straight drive, ASDA 5 mins away, a straight drive there too. A great site managed by concerned supportive Wardens, really enjoyed our stay, highly recommended Steve, Mark, Sue and Les, thank you for a lovely stay..

Very pleasant stay

The Sandringham Estate Caravan Club Site
Spent a couple of nights here in August and had lovely sunny weather. We are in a motorhome and enjoyed the beautiful walks around the estate and to the house and gardens. Sadly the house was not open during our stay. The EE phone signal was virtually non existent but we had perfect TV reception with no extra booster. The facilities were fine but I was surprised to find there was only a very small single hand basin serving several toilet cubicles. We did have pizzas from the visiting van one evening but they were poor, and disappointing.

A balanced review of Sandringham

The Sandringham Estate Caravan Club Site
Just back from a ten night stay on this site. Access is very easy from Kings Lynn on a straight road. The site is well laid out with great pitches in lovely woodlands. Some pitches are sloping so don’t forget the levelling blocks! The site is well located to explore the coastline and is itself in a lovely woodland area with plenty of forest walks. The wardens were a great bunch; all really friendly, welcoming, helpful; they’re an asset to the CC. The facilities were immaculately clean for our first week or so but the CC’s usual high standards slipped a bit as the site became 100% full. We use our own shower as a rule but one evening I used the site's shower and was surprised to find the floors were really dirty, and a swarm of insects a bit like small flying ants had found its way into the showers. Insects were stuck all over the walls inside the shower cubicle! That was not pleasant but worse, I noticed they were still there or there again the following night. The previous comments about poor telephone/Wi-Fi signals are absolutely correct. We're on Vodafone which generally has a reputation for getting a signal in most places but Sandringham was too much even for Vodafone! We never got 4G, suffered intolerably slow 3G and mostly had "e" or no signal at all. We were visiting Norfolk with friends who were not staying on the site but in Kings Lynn and we had to make all arrangements in advance because we could not rely on any digital messages arriving at all or on time. No room for any arrangements changing at short notice or any emergencies either! No checking weather forecasts for places we were due to visit – of course it’s manageable with a lot of planning but all a bit inconvenient. We know we rely on our phones but this doesn’t make it any easier when they fail! We looked at taking a CC Wi-Fi subscription but were advised against it because it’s not good enough either. The really negative thing for us on this site is the pigeons. Their numbers are definitely out of control; they are like a plague! Every morning at 5/6 am we’d be woken by pigeons clattering on the roof. We didn’t pitch or park under the trees but the mess they made on the caravan, awning and car was amazing. We not city based; we live in a rural village and love the birdsong but in this beautiful forest we heard nothing but the incessant pigeons and an owl on one night. It was the talk of the site and it’s such a shame; you really can’t grasp how this effects the enjoyment of this otherwise lovely site until you have experienced it, and it's definitely what we'll remember of Sandringham, and sadly the thing that will make us think twice about returning, Hope this review helps you all!

Chill out

The Sandringham Estate Caravan Club Site
Great site in the woods, very peaceful apart from the noisy pigeons, Very friendly staff, most sites level, hedging and trees to separate areas of the site. No problem with phone signal. Very hot weather but the trees gave some welcome shade. Toilets and facilities clean and tidy. Visited Sandringham House, Brancaster Beach and Hunstanton, all well worth the trip. Rounded off with fish and chips on the Green at Hunstanton. Refreshment vans visit the camp site most nights. Will definitely be back,
