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.

Marmite site......early morning jet noise . Technology struggles to work. Be warned.

This might be a totally unfair review, but at the end of the day we can only judge it on the short 2 night stay we had . Maybe we just got unlucky days with the overhead jet noise , but oh my goodness they are loud , long and constant , with an 8:30 start and each one rumbling for 10 minutes as they pass. Maybe the jets aren’t passing every day , i am sure they aren't ...but if you get a couple of days like ours , its only fair you are warned. Someone mentioned to us you can check when they are flying on a website , so if you think the noise will bother you , do that before booking . Just to add , you can’t see the jets , just hear them . I think they fly higher to try and minimise the noise. It doesn’t work . Apart from the noise of jets , the internet connection is bad , tv connection bad and mobile signal bad. We had to drive 6 miles to get internet and phone connection at one point . I am sure this is one person's heaven and another persons hell, hence my title of a marmite site . You will either adore it or hate it . The site is beautiful , peaceful if you are lucky enough to get a non jet flying day . The wardens are great . We felt very safe in the covid crisis. Sandringham gardens are worth a visit . The house is only about 8 rooms and we felt a bit of a rip off. Hunstanton is worth a visit . Not enough here to do for a week really , unless you are into fitness and like walking or running , maybe cycling , but the roads can be a bit dodgy round here . You need a car for everything . Its a lovely site but just check the jet flying if you think that will bother you and remember , you are pretty much off grid with technology struggling to work

Fantasic location

We arrived on Sunday 5th June to stay three nights we liked it so much we stayed for 14. The team of wardens managed the COVID 19 Secure check in very efficiently, and the wrist band system is a great idea, a small amount of members did not seem to get the idea of try to use your own facilities as much as possible. I feel during these more careful times children should not be allowed to use the toilet blocks unsupervised, I had unfortunately to speak to two boys 10 -12 years old I guess, for playing games in the toilet block they took a great deal of time in the block sky larking and soaked the entire floor with water. The Sainsbury supermarket at Kings Lynn is huge with plenty of parking and petrol station, only 10 - 15 minutes drive away, Heacham beach is a great walk along the front and Mobility Scooter friendly, Hunstantan is a decent small town with plenty of reasonable places to eat. I enjoyed a round of Golf at Heacham Manor Golf club £26.00 for a round, nice open course and easy to find your way around. Only negative was the Wifi at the top end of the site was down for the whole 14 days despite the best efforts of the wardens to get it sorted they was let down by the supplier to the site. For once we did not feel overwhelmed by members with small herds of dogs fouling the site at will grat place, great team managing the site thank you

First Weekend 17/07

This was our first weekend away since week before lockdown and wasn’t sure what to expect but I needn’t have worried as the site team made everything clear of what was expected of the caravaners. For myself and my wife it was first class. Social distancing, armbands for toilet blocks, waste disposal was crystal clear and I never had to queue once for any amenities. So thanks club and a special thanks to the site team.
