Delightful Site with Pleasant Hosts visited 5 Nights in July 2019

This site is very well kept by the owners, it offers large pitches with a choice of how to position your unit to allow sunshine or shade under the tall well maintained hedges. The toilets and showers are 1st class and are an optional extra for which a small fee is paid if you choose to use them. The fishing lake is laid out well with nature and conservation in mind. Yes there is some traffic noise in the afternoon when people are commuting and it should be expected that during harvest the modern farm machinery can create noise and they will work well into the night. This has to be accepted and with windows shut it is minimal. overall we loved it. We were exploring my fathers birthplace in a nearby village and cycling around was easy once we were off the B Road, Nearby Long Stratton offers a half hour bus service into Norwich and there are plenty of free parking places in the village. We had 2 massive thunderstorms during the night with torrential rain but the grass showed no sign of water by the morning the pitches are all very flat and firm. There are 2 hard standing pitches available in bad weather but these are a bit nearer the road. Norfolk villages still offer a link to rural England from past years and are all worth exploring, this site offers an ideal location to base yourself for this. Lowestoft and the east coast are within a 30 mile drive.

Surprisingly Noisy

Lovely site with well kept lawns and hedges etc. Easy to find following the directions given the site is in the middle of the countryside however it is a very noisy site. The road noise is quite loud at all times especially early mornings with lots of lorries and farm tractors going past. This coupled with chain saws, mowers, tractors made it quite a noisy site. Would visit again as it is one of the nicest sites we have been to, did not visit the wildlife area but will do next time.

A SORROWFUL REVIEW

This is an extraordinary cl. Not only has it got everything you could ask for, and everything is immaculate, plus it has its own wildlife walks. From going in to leaving nothing is too much trouble for Pat and Steve. Tons of room on a well cared for lawn, electrics, water and elsan all easy to get and of course immaculate. Within easy reach of places to visit within Norfolk but I think it is better as a chill out zone. Just sit by their fishing lake and watch the insects and birds go past, follow the little paths round the field, very relaxing. Why did I put A SORROWFUL REVIEW . Well anyone who reads this will make a booking making it harder for me to return to the best cl I've been to. CARAVAN CLUB please take note. Why are other cl sites not as good as this.

Genuinely lovely

We have just returned from a wonderful first visit to this immaculately maintained, peaceful site. Pat and Steve were extremely friendly and welcoming and the facilities were spotless. The pitches were generous and the outlook from each was lovely. My husband was keen to try a spot of fishing in the well stocked pond, located in the tranquil wildlife meadow beyond the gate of the cl field - he wasn't disappointed with the results! The surprisingly pleasant town of Diss is only 7 miles from the site and has a great selection of well known shops and supermarkets, as well as a number of smaller, specialist outlets. We can be quite particular about certain aspects of sites we like to stay on and this one did the job for us! We hope to return in 2018.

A lovely CL

Visited June 2017. Little to add to the other reviews, very nice, very well kept and clearly much loved by the owners. Much daily maintenance going on. Very nice wildlife area (much credit) and great on site walk for the dogs (on leads as was nesting time). The fishing pond holds very very tame carp, they come to you slurping at the surface when stood at the side and they are obviously hand fed regularly, very pleasant but no challenge for anyone fishing. Very very reasonable basic price for pitch & electric on this lovely site but it is extra charge for an awning & shower block use. No groundsheets in awnings and no heaters in awnings was listed on site rules on reception door. Very friendly and amiable owners. Very much recommended !

Can you keep a secret?

I found this CL by chance whilst looking through the M&CC book for somewhere at very short notice in the Suffolk area for 3 days. Having read the reviews and after looking at their website I thought I’d give them a try, but expected them to be full. Luckly enough they had one space available for 3 days, it must have been fate! Easy to find and first impressions were great. Level well cut grass area with hook up, loads of space between units. A warm welcome by Pat clear and concise instructions detailing all options regarding the use of Toilets/Showers, Fishing and Internet. Apparently they leave these options as “extras” because some visitors prefer to use their own facilities, or don’t fish or do not wish to use the Internet. Fare enough. Breaking down these options means they only charge £11 per night including hook up. For this site with the location and superb grounds £11 is an absolute bargain. I selected to splash out and paid the extra £4.50 to use their spotless facilities, so £12.50 per night. Still a bargain! I had a walk around the grounds and bumped into Steve, Pats husband. He showed me all the various features they have created in the couple of acres or so of land they have converted to a ‘reserve’. I just couldn’t believe the amount of work they both put into this place. The grounds, described by another reviewer, as a nature reserve couldn’t be more accurate. Steve has prepared superb areas for all wildlife to thrive. He has even built a bird hide! The centre point of the grounds is the fantastic lake which is very well stocked with Carp, Roach and Rudd. Many photographs were taken and many fish caught, Carp up to 8.5lb. I have already booked my next visit when Steve has promised me a teach in on another of his hobbies, Lepidoptera.

A lovely peaceful and spacious site with lovely facilites

We have been to this site 3 times now and we are really pleased with everything that is available including disabled toilets and shower. The pitches are very large and the grass is well cut. Pat and Steve are very friendly and and make sure stay is very pleasant. This site is also great for fishing people but if not like us you can enjoy the wildlife area and walks. If you are a CL caravaner/ motorhomer then make this site a priority to visit you will not be disappointed.

A SITE THAT WE CANNOT FAULT

ONCE AGAIN WE HAD A WOUNDERFUL WEEKENDS STAY AT THE GRANGE.WE JUST CANT FAULT THIS LOVELY SITE, WELL PERHAPS ONE SMALL FAULTT WHICH WAS THE WEATHER. THE SITE HAS VERY SPACIOUS PITCHES WHICH ARE VERY WELL KEPT WITH LOVELY GREEN GRASS WHICH IS DUE TO REGULAR CUTTING AND COLLECTING OFTHE GRASS CUTTINGS. SO WE FEEL THAT---------- NO GROUND SHEETS ARE ALLOWED RULE----------- IS CORRECT FOR THIS SITE. THE FACILITIES ARE IMMACULATE AND WOULD HAVE TO GO A LONG WAY TO FIND BETTER AND WELL WORTH THE EXTRA MONEY. IF YOUR A FISHERMAN THER IS A BEAUTIFUL WELL STOCKED LAKE IF YOUR NOT THERE IS A BEAUTIFUL NATURE/DOG WALK WITH VARIOUS BENCHES AND TABLES AROUND TO SIT AND RELAX AND ADMIRE NATURE AT ITS BEST. THE OWNERS PAT AND STEVE ARE TWO OF THE BEST WITH THEIR CHEERFUL GREETINGS ON ARRIVAL AND ALWAYS COME OUT TO SAY GOODBY ON EXIT IF THEY ARE ON SITE. WE CANT WAIT TILL OUR NEXT VISIT TO THIS SITE. PAUL,LIN AND JOSH.
