A Lovely Stay

We found this beautiful CL site and stayed for 3 nights, would have loved to stay longer but it was booked for the rest of the week/weekend. The gardens that you park in are absolutely beautiful and a delight to walk round and sit in. The owners have spent a lot of time and effort on making them as beautiful as they are for the campers. It's delightful to sit outside on a warm summer evening. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and helpful with local knowledge. Tony regularly came and had a coffee with us which was nice. Their own garden is beautiful too. The village is small, there is a pub nearby but we didn't go in. There is a church ruin adjacent to the site and the current church is just across the road from the ruin. The church bells ring on the quarter hour but they don't keep you awake at night and you don't always hear them. Personally I like to hear church bells ringing, these are quieter than most. There is a bus stop right outside the gate and the bus takes you into Norwich and from there you can go wherever you wish. We will definitely be back.

A Bootiful CL!

We were made to feel very welcome on this Norfolk jewel of a CL. The manicured lawn is protected from the prevailing winds by hedges on three sides with the view lying on one side across the lane. The owner, Tony, is a keen gardener and keeps the flowerbeds in immaculate condition. The site is small but beautifully formed and the price is very reasonable at £10 a night. It is also extremely convenient for Norwich (one of the loveliest British cities we have visited) and other regional sights. We'll be back!

Perfect CL

This is a lovely peaceful CL with a manicured lawn and surrounding flowers and shrubs. It is ideal for catching the bus into Norwich as the bus stop is immediately over the country road outside the site. We have stayed here a few times and I always phone the owner when we are about five minutes away and he opens the gate ready for us. He is very pleasant, welcoming and helpful. This CL has everything we are looking for.

An excellent CL

We stayed for 4 nights. As others have said this is a lovely site, well looked after, in a good location and with a friendly and helpful owner. The road outside has more traffic than you might expect for a country lane, but nothing like a main road. Take care when arriving, there's a gravelled pull-in area outside the (locked) site gate but not really big enough for long units.

As the the first review said, this is a loverly site and very well maintained. The site its near the centre of Norwich (5 miles) with a bus stop just out side the gate. You are also less than a couple of miles away from Woodsend on the Norfolk Broads. Tony the owner could not have been more helpful, we were the last van on so only the 1 pitch available, but he told us that 3 were leaving the following day and we could move if we wanted. We never did as I was more than happy in the shade on hardstanding. Nothing was to much effort, on the day of our departure as he had no one coming on he said that we could stay as long as we wanted no need to rush off. Will definitely return

Lovely Site

We have just returned from The Old Stracey CL site. We had a warm welcome by Mr Hammond and was shown straight to our pitch. The site is laid mainly to lawn with flower borders surrounding. It is one of the best we have stayed on! Its looked after very well, with electric pitches - some hardstandings, glass recycling, fresh water and waste areas. Even though we only live 20 miles away, we explored the area and found Bramerton Woods End and Whitlingham Country Park - both in close proximity and both lovely places to visit. On arrival you are given a key to the gate which is kept locked at all times. We took our small children of 6 & 7 and they also loved the site, especially the knome area! Caravan sites in Norwich are in short supply so we are glad we found this one and will definately be returning again soon.
