Quiet and comfortable

Quiet three night stay in December 2020. Facilities good and clean. Also the Covid19 issues were well managed, and we felt quite safe. Easy, I guess, since the site wasn’t busy. The fish and chip van visit was a bonus- they were good too. Pleasant walk to the Sandringham visitor centre. Plenty of forest walks! We also went on an enjoyable bike ride which was recommended from the club website. The only annoyance, as ever, is having to pay for the site WiFi. Be aware that the phone 4g signal is very poor. Little interaction with site staff - but that was friendly and efficient.

A nice peaceful stay

This was our first visit to Sandringham. I would like to point out the check in, politeness of the wardens and their friendliness was top class. The site is easy to access and the toilet blocks are immaculate. However, please be aware that the site is quite sloped in places and you will probably need numerous blocks to get your unit level. I saw a caravan with it's leg fully extended on one side and then on a block around 8 inches in height!! It didn't look very safe to me. I was lucky when we arrived as the site was practically empty so chose a plot that although a lot better than the rest of them, I still needed a tyre leveller and wound the legs to the full on one side to get level. Beyond dusk, the site is full of bunnies and they like to burrow so even though the wardens inform you of this, please be aware when you head to the toilet block after dark. Some of them are quite deep!! Having said this, it was peaceful and quiet and close to some lovely beaches. Try Snettisham to walk. Absolutely lovely beach, and the dog liked it too! The Fish and Chip van who visited on the Friday evening was top class. Freshly cooked, big portions! No Wifi at all, which isn't a problem if you don't need a TV, phone etc!

Lovely site.

We’ve been to this site for the past ten years and have never been disappointed. Visited 4-10-20 for 6 nights. When visiting the site in October it’s normally quite quiet and not many outfits but this time due to the strange times we’re living in it was very busy, having said that it was still so peaceful and quiet. We had mixed weather but still visited Hunstanton, Brancaster, Snettisham, Heacham and Kings Lynn. Holkham Hall is well worth a visit even just to walk around the grounds. The pay & display car park for Brancaster beach is dreadful so beware, it’s full of huge pot holes and if they’re full of water you don’t know that till it’s too late!! Site very tidy as always, lovely polite wardens.

Ideal location

This site was chosen as a base for our bird watching weekend. It was ideal in every way. It was safe and well organised re Covid, a quiet, peaceful and attractive site, friendly fellow campers, perfect on site catering (normally we would cook in the van but after a days birdwatching we were too tired so opted for the easy option. Fish and chips one night and a pizza the next. Both freshly cooked and tasty)

Lovely site

As with all club sites we have visited, the site is very well maintained and the staff are friendly and helpful. There are some great woodland walks from the site and very easy to walk to the Sandringham estate. We were lucky enough to spot some deer on are walks while staying at the site.

Great location forexploring North Norfolk

The Sandringham CC site is a standard large Club site with all the facilities we have come to expect. Things are a little different during these Covid times, but most people have learned to adapt and things are running pretty smoothly, thanks to the great efforts of the Wardens as always. Lack of recycling facilities is a slight annoyance, but there must be good reason for that new procedure. The site is advertised as having Bronze level WiFi but this struggled to cope at busy times in the evening and mid morning. We happened to be on a pitch close to one of the transmitters - I suspect that the signal would not be good in remote parts of the site. WiFi has now become as essential service – even more so since the Covid pandemic and it should be a Club priority to provide the best possible service. Many restaurants and attractions now require advance on-line reservations and as there is very poor mobile signal on this site, WiFi is the only alternative. TV signal is excellent - with a cable hooked into the booster point on each EHU post. A fish & chips van appears on site twice a week (Weds & Friday) and a pizza van one day (Mondays, I think). There are excellent walks in the surrounding Sandringham estate and the House is well worth visiting when it is open. There are several big supermarkets with a 10miute drive. Sandringham is a good location for visiting the Norfolk coast – Cromer, Wells Next the Sea – as well as Kings Lynn and venturing into the Fens. There are many brilliant pubs in North Norfolk. The Wardens – as always – were very friendly and helpful and the site kept spotless. Because of Covid we didn’t use toilet or shower facilities.

Excellent stay

Well spaced pitches all on gravel, lots of good walks in the adjacent woods (no cycling) but lots of quiet roads around the estate and further. We walked to Sandringham house and from there got the bus to Hunstanton. The return bus stopped right outside the campsite. Toilet block wasnt heated which the wardens were trying to sort out. Wood Fired Pizza top pepperoni.

Relaxing site

Spent 7 nights here, one of our favourite sites. Pitched at the top as busy and not much choice of pitches. We were rewarded with a deer coming out to feed on the grass a couple of times and also seeing one in the ferns. Safe check in, one in one out. Unable to comment on facilities as always use our own. Fish and chip van excellent, won’t be having the pizza again. Looking forward to returning.

Favourite Site

We have been to this site many times and it has become one of our favourites. Its location is superb, not only for its immediate surrounding area but also for its proximity to the Norfolk coast. We are living through strange times of course but the site staff seem to have things under control. So, visiting the Sandringham Site, especially in the glorious weather we experienced, can still be peaceful, restful and safe. Despite the pleasure of simply being here, I really do hope that the new type of Motorhome waste point can be introduced shortly. They do make life easier, especially as many members are now using their own shower facilities. Finally, Snettisham is mentioned in the Site leaflet. Motorhome and Campervan users please note that Snettisham Beach car park had a height restriction at the time of our visit and no realistic turning space for a quick change of direction.

Lovely site but Be Careful with your dogs

We visited the site from the 11th September until the 14th, I have no complaints about the site it is well maintained and we had a lovely relaxing & peaceful stay. However I do think the signs warning of dogs getting ill after going in the woods need to be updated, I had my little yorkie Albie with me and my friend had her Poodle & Patterdale with her, we took them for a walk in the woods and 72 hours later all three had Diarrhoea & severe vomiting, they all had to go to the vets and Albie ( being so tiny) was kept in overnight on a drip and intravenous antibiotics. It will not stop us visiting the site as we do really like it but I just wanted to warn people to be careful with their dogs. Mandy
