A wonderful winter mini break

We have just spent 3 nights at this lovely clean & well kept site. It was quiet which is how we like, I am not sure what it would be like in high season. This is a wonderful spot to rest at, walk from or drive out to visit places. We had a wonderful drive out to see the seals at Horsey which was spectacular, this too gave us the chance to visit Poppylands a1940's tea room which is a must to visit too. We had a lovely walk to St Bennets Abbey & back via Ludham. We would have like to visit more place along the river but it was too muddy in places to go safely. The pub 2 minutes walk from the site was sadly shut, from what I can gather was because the boat people would not visit safely when they moored up near by. This is a shame as it would have been good to go. The site wardens are wonderfully friendly and should be proud of their efforts at keeping the site so lovely. This site is ideal for us as only just over an hour from home and we hope to visit again. Thank you for a pleasant time.

Post Lockdown getaway

Extended opening gave us chance for few days here. Excellent, well kept site, friendly helpful wardens and super facilities , immaculate and very well organized for covid. Nice riverside walk to St. Benet's and along a bit of the coast nearby. With better weather there looks to be plenty of other places to visit and walk etc around area. As site is only a little over hour away from home I'm glad the extra open time gave us the opportunity to try it out. Will definitely be back in spring.

Relaxing break with first class service

After the second lockdown we were desparate to get away, and wanted to do so before the tier systems were reviewed again. This site had been on our radar for a while, and as opening had been extended this year we took advantage to visit out of season. The welcome at reception was the friendliest I have encountred at any club site. Everything was explained in a very helpful and efficient manner. A 5 hour power cut was scheduled for the following day as National Grid needed to carry out some necessary work. The implications of this were explained with advice and an information sheet handed to us. We had a problem with the tap on our serviced pitch during our stay and this was immediately investigated and resolved by Dennis one of the wardens. The immediate area is brilliant for walks with some wonderful views along the way. We walked to How Hill Staithe one day and back to the site by the River Ant. Another day we walked to St Benet's Abbey and then on to Womack Water and along the river towards Potter Heigham. There is also a bus stop close to the site entrance with buses to Wroxham and Norwich. Something that we hope to explore next time we visit. This place is a gem and we definitely intend to return!

Relaxing family break

We have just spent a very pleasant two nights over half term at this site. The facilities are spotlessly clean and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We had a couple of very pleasant walks during our stay. One a circular walk to the Abbey ruins, stopping off on the way back at the pub. The Dog pub is only a few minutes walk from the site. Despite it's rather plain décor, the staff were very friendly and the food was tasty. The second walk was a longer walk along the River to How Hill and then back through the village of Ludham. Again we stopped at the pub, this time the Kings Arms, to shelter from the showers. I'm not a fan of giant TVs in pubs, (if you are, this is the pub for you) however we managed to sample a couple of excellent pints of Woodfordes Wherry and kept dry!

A pleasant short break

We stayed at the Norfolk Broads Caravan Club site for 3 nights from 22 Oct, so largely avoiding the 1/2 term holidays (60+ couple in a very small Eriba Puck). We were made very welcome by the staff especially Tim who gave us some help setting up and some friendly advice about places of interest in the local area, he was extremely helpful! :) We did the circular walk to St Benet’s Abbey and the Paddle Boat at Horning, all felt very Covid safe and most enjoyable even in the rain! Also took a drive to Horsey Gap Beach to see the seals! Amazing sight! ( but if you are thinking of going, check first as they were about to close the beach to the public to give the females a chance to give birth in peace..) We had a lovely stay, site was spotlessly clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Very impressed

We had never visited this part of Norfolk before but we must say it’s a camp site worth a visit. We arrived at the camp and we very impressed with the parking facilities available whilst booking in. Booking in was very pleasant experience, staff were very pleasant and helpful. The site and facilities were spotless and this standard was maintained throughout our stay. There are loads of places to visit both for families and couples alike. As members of the National Trust we made the most of these plentiful facilities. Dogs are welcome although the on-site dog walk is on the small side but there are ample places just outside the site to exercise your pooch. Staff work hard to maintain such a high standard and should be congratulated for their thoroughness, hospitality and genuine drive to make your stay with them an experience to be remembered, we have already booked to return next year.

Very impressed!

This was our first outing since the dreaded virus struck and I was very impressed with how well the site managed the rules and regulations. Everything was spotless and there was a good system in place for the use in the amenity block. Full marks. A nice quiet site with a friendly pub, The Dog, a short walk up the road. They serve good food but the kitchen is closed on Mondays. Likewise they are also very good where covid rules are concerned. Some nice walks from the site too as well as cycle rides. Boats can be hired close by, all in all a good break.

Good open site and plenty to do in the local area

We stayed on the site w/c 12th September. The site is easy to get to, nice and open (a few trees but not too large to hide the sun!) and kept well maintained by the friendly wardens. There is a little road noise but this was not obtrusive and not nearly as noisy as the "fly-by" of the geese at regular intervals :-) We used our bicycles for most of the week and purchased the Cycle Route map from reception - it provides some good safe country road routes with just a few sections of main road and takes you past a number of gardens, pubs and towns. Our favorites were The Fur and Feathers (WoodBastwick), How Hill, Hoveton Hall, Waxham (good place for lunch) and Ranworth Broad. We hired a day boat from Sutton Staithe and managed to get from their to Ranworth and back (even spotting 5 Kingfishers) - reasonably priced at £120.00 (and the boat was electric so no noisy smelly diesel). The Dog Inn just up from the site has good outside seating and does a reasonable evening meal including Gluten Free options which my wife requires. All in all a lovely week, helped by beautiful weather for the time of you and we would definitely visit again!

Lovely relaxing time

I stayed on this site over the August Bank Holiday and it was quieter than expected, probably due to the variable weather, so I found it mostly peaceful. I stayed on a grass pitch towards the back of the site and this was very quiet and had plenty of space around it. I was set back a little way from the access road so didn't notice any children but to be honest there have been children tearing around on bikes and scooters on pretty much every site I've visited in the school holidays! The site itself is well maintained and there are lots of walks accessible from it including St. Benet's Abbey and How Hill Nature Reserve - don't miss the secret garden! Bewilderwood is just up the road for those with children and there are plenty of places to hire boats nearby. A short drive takes you to Horsey Gap where you can see seals all year round and nearby Horsey Mill is worth a stop for refreshments or a comfort break. I stayed as a solo female guest and felt perfectly safe on site and in the surrounding area. There was plenty to do so I will be returning with the family next year.
