Spot On!

We reached Shrublands via the two way minor road from the A149 at Wells Next The Sea. The site is behind the property from which it gets its’ name, and the track to it is to the right of the property. As detailed in the site description the 5 level pitches are well screened from each other by hedging. Ours gave good views over the adjoining farm land and despite recent very heavy rain the grass showed no sign of it. Electric hook-up and water tap adjoin each pitch so everything is on-hand. There is one shower room and a separate W.C. in a converted outbuilding at the entrance to the site. The washing up area is on the outside of the same building. All three have PIR activated lighting are of a standard similar to what you would expect in a mid-price campsite and an unexpected bonus at a C.L. There is a “summer house” available for guests. This includes two comfortable upholstered armchairs, a writing desk and chair along with a book swop, local information leaflets and reference books. This proved ideal for a “sundowner” on an evening when it couldn’t decide between rain and sunshine. The Lynx “Coastliner” bus service stops by the entrance to the site and provides an hourly service to Wells Next The Sea and on to Kings Lynn, or southbound to Fakenham. There is a connecting “Coasthopper” bus service from Wells to Cromer which we found ideal for walking a section of the coast path back to Wells. The local pub (Carpenters Arms) is a short walk from the site, but you will need a torch once it gets dark. The meal we had there was excellent. We enjoyed our stay (despite some inclement weather), would happily stay again and recommend Shrublands (and the pub!) to other members.
