Great Peaceful CL

What a peaceful & accommodating CL this is. Highly recommend a visit. We only stayed 2 nights as we wanted to visit Sandringham which is very near. Great outlook & will definitely put it on our 'return list' if visiting this area again. Thank you to Sue & her husband for making us so welcome.

Always a warm friendly welcome

We have been coming to this wonderful little site for the last 7 years and thought it was about time we left a review. This is one of our favourite sites and the owners are always very welcoming and take great pride in their site. It is very peaceful with a beautiful outlook across open fields. Grimston itself has a local shop, pub/restaurant and even a small caravan accessory shop. It is ideally situated for exploring the west north Norfolk area. We are already looking forward to returning next year. Mick and Sharon Flack

One of our very best CL`s

We have just spent seven peaceful and relaxing days at Mrs Irvine`s wonderful CL. Upon arrival we were met by Mr & Mrs Irvine who made us very welcome. The CL is compact and has a very pleasant view across the neighbouring corn field. The site is peaceful, quite and tranquil. Access, is straight forward and easy . The are many local attractions including, Sandringham House, Hunstanton, Kings Lynn and the North Norfolk coast. Clearly if you have a large caravan you will need to discuss access with Mrs Irvine first. So if you want peace and tranquillity why not try this lovely CL?

Pleasant surprise

We will return here when in the area, definitely recommend it. Neat, tidy, clean, well maintained, lawn and hedges cut, peaceful location. The information centre is a thoughtful touch, with leaflets, maps and all sorts of useful things to borrow. Must remember next time to bring some books with me as the swap shelves were stocked with books I actually would like to read. Thank you the Irvings.

Lovely place

Don't normally write reviews but this place deserves it. Recent stay over bank holiday. Warm informative welcome. We have 7.5 metre+ motorhome and found access easy. Site firm very well maintained grass overlooking fields. Plenty of birdlife species in the surrounding hedgerows and trees,so sitting out was a treat. Very quiet well away from the main roads. We Cycled and walked the surrounding villages parishes and woods. Interesting churches and architecture. Local pubs good food and real ales found in all.

Peace & heaven

Previous reviewers have commented on the approach to the site. It is narrow but on every occasion we have stayed here, no problems were experienced on arrival or at any time whilst we were there, they must have been unlucky. Don't let that put you off, or you will miss a truly great site. This must be the 5th or 6th time we have stayed here, this time for 4 nights. Cannot wait to come back, lovely hosts, lovely site, lovely scenery and many places to go. Beaches within easy reach and plenty to see. The site is for 4 vans, caravans or motor homes. There is good spacing and room for all. We'll certainly be back, as someone said! Can't wait

A perfect peaceful retreat for exploring North & West Norfolk

Booked for 3 days stayed 3 weeks. We picked this site as it seemed to fit our needs and if the weather as we expected turned wet and windy we hadn't too far to go home. Well yes for the first week the weather was very mixed but despite heavy rain showers and one nights gale we just didn't want to leave. We found loads of historic houses and museums to visit in the bad weather and when the sun came out there were plenty of beach and wildlife walks to keep us happy. The best thing though was going back to the peace and quiet of this CL which despite terrible rain at times remained firm under foot. To get back to the site in it's peaceful surroundings and watch the lovely sunsets was so relaxing. Mr and Mrs Irving were lovely hosts giving us a wonderful greeting on arrival and keeping the site lovely and tidy. Thank you so much. A small word of caution if your unit is wider than the average then take care as Watery Lane is narrow and can have cars parked on it, we got past them OK though and our van is 2.17m wide What a lovely place to relax and yes I'm sure we will be back.

Cosy

We enjoyed our stay on this small CL situated at the end of the village of Grimston. The CL only accepts 4 units as space is at a premium, although there is sufficient space between outfits to be able to breathe. All pitches are north facing across agricultural land but each pitch is on a slope, mostly south to north but some slightly slope west to east as well. We were able to pitch without the need for levelling blocks but not sure how some outfits would manage and probably not the best site for any larger motorhomes. In any case all pitches are on grass and the entrance area can get a bit wet. Speaking of the entrance, you approach the site down a narrow track of about 250 yards, around the back of some houses that front the main street. When we arrived there were 2 cars parked on this lane, both fortunately with their wing mirrors in and we just squeezed past with only a couple of inches to spare. we were probably unlucky as for the rest of our week long stay there were no cars parked there at all. The lane also has a bend in it so take extra care on approach and also at the entrance to the CL as well which is a little tight but manageable. The site is quite well protected from winds from the south by a large hedge, from the west by a large tree and the east by houses but will be exposed to Northerly winds. All services are easily accessible and well looked after and the owners are friendly. Please remember that there is only 10 amps on this site. The site is very peaceful and there is hardly any noise. You could quite easily walk to the village shop and pub and the local bus will take you into Kings Lynn. Sandringham and other well known Norfolk locations are handy and there are 2 caravan dealers with small accessory shops in the area. All in all a pleasant place to stop.

Love this cl

We have used this cl a few times now when visiting my brother. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Facing the fields and looking out of the window is so relaxing. Watch out for the owl he/she visits sometimes and sits on the fence. Lovely stays thank you Sue.
