What a gem of a site, billy and pam are great hosts and the site is fantastic, they really look after it and make you feel at home.

Every thing was clean and well looked after.

Toilets and showers are clean and well maintained.

There's a cabin on site with washing machine and microwave, tv, books to lend. And all the information you need for the surrounding area.There's a honesty box if you forgot your shampoo.

The site is close to many attractions, we didn't know which direction to go in first.

The local pubs sell great food and are very welcoming.

We loved it so much we are going back in July.

This site was recommended to us by friends and we were not disappointed with what we found. The site is tucked away behind Poppyland Cottage and not visible from the road. The site owners, Billy & Pam, are very welcoming and helpful. We had problems with our sink pipe whilst there and Billy was only too happy to help and fixed the problem.

We were booked in for 4 nights over the May Day Bank Holiday but liked it so much we stayed for 10 days!

Being Adults Only the site is sooooo peaceful and quiet.

The toilet / shower block is more than adequate for the size of site. We always found it to be spotless and is cleaned daily, there was even fresh flowers in the ladies. There are two separate privacy cubicles for the ladies with loo and basin, one of the cubicles also has a shower and both have large mirrors and plenty of space. My hubby tells me there are two loos, wash basin and one shower cubicle for the gents.

Both ladies and gents had clean hand towels, paper towels, liquid hand soap and air fresheners. The showers operate on a 50p coin which we found supplied more than enough hot water. Although the site was full over the bank holiday weekend we did not have to queue for toilet or shower once.

There is a portacabin with a few supplies and also books, dvds, local info leaflets & maps, sink & drainer for pot washing, washing machine, fridge / freezer etc etc and again, kept clean and tidy.

Billy was busy installing new TV aerial sockets to pitches whilst we were there, after a few teething problems he had them up and running before we left so I was able to get my TV 'fix' and hubby was pleased as he could watch the footy! (Yawn - might have to fall out with Billy for that one!).

There are bird feeders and bird tables around the site which we thought was a lovely touch - it was a joy to sit in our caravan watching the numerous species of birds tucking in (we counted 23 different species).

Recycling is encouraged on site.

Poppyland is a great base for visiting the coast, broads and for wonderful country walks. We particularly enjoyed walking our dog in the woods at nearby Felbrigg Hall.

The Suffield Arms and Vernon Arms are both a short distance away (5 mins in car) and serve fantastic food. Our dog was made welcome at both.

Have already booked to go back and would not hesitate to recommend to others.

We had a great Bank holiday weekend here and like other's have said the owners could not be more friendly or helpful. It was very handy having a bus stop out side of site although they do not run on Sundays or Bank holiday I believe. Cromer was a short bus ride away and we went on the Saturday and was pleasantly surprised at how it had been spruced up since my last visit. There was also a garden centre close by.

Our Newspapers were delivered ! The facilities were spotless and bright and cheerie. The washing up facilities were in a cabin and my other half praised them ( I don't do washing up when away)

We will most certainly be going back again.

Well the reviews of this site were generally spot on. Pam and Billy gave a very warm welcome and really will go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. Being ex caravanner's they understand what matters. A personal newspaper delivery service was offered by the site. We stayed over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend where the site was full.

The toilets and showers were kept very clean but in my view were slightly too small and will need updating in the near future. Only one shower and two toilets in the mens and the sink was in front of the toilets which made access difficult. The supply of a urinal would help at busy times. The showers always had plenty of hot water with a charge of 50p. I personally would prefer a small increase in site rent and to have the showers free.

The electricity supply was reliable at 16amp but the TV signal is intermittent. Billy has installed TV points, but on our pitch there were still problems with picking up the signal.

It was fantastic to see honesty and trust. Pam and Billy leave a small supply of essential and some non essentials like chocolate in the Portakabin with an honesty box. There is no shop in the village and this is really a very sensible approach. As well as the shop goods the Portakabin hosted a wide range of information for the local area as well as a picture board of all visiting dogs which were made very welcome.

It is in a good position for visiting the local area and if you like small sites and peace and quiet this is the site to visit. The only thing missing, a fishing lake (but Pam did offer a bucket with a goldfish)

We have just returned from a wonderful 4 days at Poppyland Touring Park and can't praise it enough. Billy and Pam make every tourer so welcome and are always there to give help or advice. We were having problems with our new satellite TV and Billy couldn't have been more helpful. He even borrowed another caravanner's cable and dish to eliminate any faults on ours!

Poppyland is a beautifully peaceful level site. There is loads of space between the pitches and they all have electric hook up.

The shower/toilet facilities are kept beautifully clean, and Pam adds such lovely homely touches, such as flowers in the washroom. There is also a clean hand towel put out each day and hand soap available.

On the site there is also a cabin with washing up facilities, a washing machine and microwave. There is a very extensive lending library and some DVDs / games to borrow. Pam and Billy also have in the cabin quite an extensive range of everyday goods like milk, eggs, bottled water, foodstuffs, sweets, toiletries etc to buy all labelled up with their prices and an honesty box for the payment (a rare sight in this day, but it makes you feel so good to be trusted in this way).

All in all, if its peace and quiet in a beautiful part of Norfolk your after then you won't find anywhere better than Poppyland Touring Park - we will definitely be visiting again.

What a gem this little site is! Perfect hosts very helpful and informative. Site is quiet and not lit at night so no light pollution and the stars were amazing!

Very dog friendly - Poppy, our Yorkie, will soon feature in the rogues gallery in the information kiosk! Pictures are taken of doggy guests and put up for all to see. Shower and toilets are immaculate.

Lovely friendly atmosphere, newspapers delivered to our caravan first thing - one of many thoughtful touches by the site owners. Really can't fault it. Already booked for next Easter!

Cromer very close. Beaches close by are dog friendly but you need to check as in season dogs are banned from some of them.
