We'll be back

Just spent 3 nights here and what a super place it is. Quiet if you exclude the birdsong and the identified and unidentified sounds of the forest. We had a hard standing and most seemed to be level. We spent Saturday in Thetford and visited the Dad's Army Museum whilst there and what fun that is if you are of a certain disposition with several characters from the program wandering about. No visit to the area, for us, is complete without at least one lunch in Browns at the roundabout on the main road at Mundford. This site as others have said is ideal for walkers and cyclists alike and it is a good approximation to dog-heaven if you are a dog owner. On day 2 we walked amongst much else the Desert Rats walk, reading the information boards as we went, learnt a lot and felt some pangs of pride and gratitude. Back to the site, very clean and the staff are really helpful and friendly without being at all intrusive....just the right mix for us. In addition to much else that we saw including a Muntjac deer wandering through the site one evening we also photographed our first Painted Lady butterfly of the year finally here after a long migration from Africa.

An excellent weekend

Just returned from a wet weekend at the thetford forest club site, a lovely site for a peaceful few days away. The site as stated has no shower facilities which did not bother us, hard standings are very level, and you will need rock pegs to put up an awning. Mainly couples with dogs on this visit. Great for walking the dogs through the forestland the surrounding areas including the desert rats memorial on the approach road to the site. We will go back again,hoping the weather will be kinder to us next time.

Love this site BUT.......

We have been to Thetford many, many times before and have always loved it. I was disappointed to say this visit wasn't as good as previously. The site is fantastic and in a great setting in the middle of the forest where there is an abundance of wildlife and brilliant walks. it is quiet and peaceful (mainly) and kept in good order. The reason for marking it down this time is the wardens. They are friendly and were welcoming. However, they are quite strict on somethings but very lapse on others. We had some rather noisy people near us on this visit. They had visitors for one day and proceeded to get drunk (not got a problem with that at all). The problem was they were very loud, and annoying to other caravan users. One old chap asked them to be a little quiet and they became very rude to him, verbally abusing him. It took almost 6 hours for the warden to intervene and ask them to quiet down. They would have known about the noise as they were sitting outside their van and as I walked past I could hear the noise. What they did do was walk down and ask the noisy visitors to keep their two dogs on a lead. To be honest the dogs were good as gold and were not wandering from the pitch, so not sure why they asked them to keep the dogs on the lead but not keep the noise down! This was the only thing I ever saw them point out. They did not stop people and tell them about their speed around site, I would say easily 15 - 20 mph which is quite dangerous as there were lots of children on site. Also someone put their caravan in incorrectly which meant there was not 6 metres between vans (huge fire hazard which is clearly stated in the Caravan Club rules). They did not ask them to put it in correctly which amazed me This probably wouldn't have bothered me as much if they hadn't been so choosey over what they tackled and what they decided to let slide. I think speed and fire safety is much more important than a couple of well behaved dogs being off a lead. Sorry about the moan. Thetford is really a nice site.

Always Good

Great site, great location for dog walking . Also great for Children due to the amount of space. Please be aware, that there is no specific play area so smaller children will need to be kept an eye on as they could wander off and get lost. Great assistant wardens Andy and his wife, not strict like some sites we’ve been too notably the nightmare warden at Ferry Meadows

We had a lovely quiet few days here.

This was a first trip out with a new to us caravan and we loved it. We had the opportunity to test out everything, even the heater due to inclement weather, and it all worked. Lovely walks and beautiful surroundings.

Agree with all reviews

Great site, staff very cheerful and helpful, very very quiet as no families mostly couples. If you have pets the walks are great, downside no toilet block so be prepared to keep dragging that cassette to be emptied. Highly recommend

We arrived Friday evening to a warm welcome and pitched our motor home in a quiet spot. Although we arrived quite late we were able to access the excellent facilities and soon settled in. The following morning we found the numerous trails leading off the site - ideal for walking the dog and biking. It was so peaceful we saw plenty of birds and the local wildlife, including deer. A week end - didn't seem long enough! We will certainly come back again.
