We have just returned from a week at the Waveney, really good site, had one of the water front pitches which had plenty of room and fantasic view.

The toilet blocks were very clean. They have 10 individual we rooms also which have a number entry system, each wet room has it's own shower, toilet and sink also hairdryer.

There is also a pool on site which is included in price for all residents, very clean.

There is a well stocked shop on site and also a pub on site which was newly refurbished this year.

Overall very good site and would definitely recommend staying here.

We were 4 families staying on both the Bittern and Moorhen pitches. We had visited the site before as we live nearby, so knew the site fairly well.

We had a fairly wet weekend, but still found the ground to be rock hard, so it was quite hard to get the pegs in. The pitches were small, but the site is quite small too. The view from the pitch was lovely, overlooking the broads.

We found the site to have all we could possibly need for both adults and children. We dined at the Waveney Inn on the Friday night, and as there were 24 of us in total (we also had friends in the pods) we had pre ordered, so our food was delivered very quickly. The food was pretty good and the service was friendly. There are a couple of 2p shove machines in the pub which was a nice touch for the children.

The on site shop was well stocked, although didn't open until 9 and shut at 5. Our friends were caught out on the 1st morning without milk.

The shower/toilet blocks were always clean and warm and there seemed to always be one free. There is also another block of toilets near the washing up area which were nice and clean too. The washing up area was really nice and very clean.

The children had hours of fun on the small playground, and we used the pool (but not until the private swimming lessons had finished at 12pm) on the Saturday morning. It was very warm and the jacuzzi was boiling! The poolside cafe served a nice breakfast but you had to wait a long time for it. The older chap that worked at the cafe was a delight though. Really sweet and lovely with the children.

We hired kayaks from the reception and had a lovely hour on the broads.

All in all we were really impressed with the campsite. There was

So much to do in such a compact site. We will definitely come back for our annual get together.

Stayed on Coot 1, front row of the camping pitches.

Great facilities.

Approximately 8 shower rooms with shower/toilet/wc, with underfloor heating. Never had to wait.

Separate heated toilet block and undercover washing up area.

Swimming pool with Jacuzzi (we didn't use even though it was included in the price)

Shop selling a fab range of items from clothes to food to booze, also gifts.

Newly refurbished Waveney Inn, which had nice food, although slighly lacking in atmosphere (don't think they entertainment licence is in place yet, though its been applied for).

No problems getting the car on / off the pitch even at busy times.

Hired a day boat, had a brilliant time visiting Somerleyton and Oulton Broad.

Booking again for next year. :-)

Just came back from 6 nights. We had booked one of the Coot pitches (largest available). We arrived the Saturday of the Witsun bank holiday (after per longed rain), pitch somewhat waterlogged. Had no choice to pitch our extension in a puddle. Soon realised as the site filled up that if I did not move my car, then it would be blocked in. ( an extra 5 per night that was not planned). The campsite was full. No 6M rule in operation as on many pitches the guy ropes were overlapping.

As a result the campsite was very noisy with so many people in a small area, did not help due to the river cruisers moored up on top of us on a mobile pub crawl.

On arrival, information was functional rather than welcoming.

Swimming pool OK, but absolutely no supervision. Changing facilities different as you get changed and have to walk back to the entrance / cafe to gain access to / from the pool.

Building work ongoing on the site, new pub a pleasant atmosphere, but food average.

Showers were cleaned regularly, but due to the quantity of people and the wetness of the grass, walkways became mud paths, so washrooms suffered.

Would I go again, yes, BUT not at peak periods. This is a money making enterprise for the owners and not for the campers.

Oh my god! What an amazing site. From the beautiful view from our pitch, to the immaculate toilet and shower blocks, to the incredible food served in the on site bar and restaurant, right up to the wonderfully friendly and helpful staff. We stayed at the Waveney River Centre for a week and when our stay was over, we wished that we had booked a longer trip.

The site was great for our two children who enjoyed the swimming pool, the park and the boating. (We hired a boat for a day from the on site marina) This was not only reasonably priced but an extremely fun day out on the Norfolk Broads.

The only negative for this site is the slightly scary access when towing a touring van. We were lucky enough that, having stuck to the arrival and departure times to the letter, that we did not encounter any oncoming tourers upon arrival or exit. Please be sure, if you are towing, to make sure you follow the online instructions on navigating to the site, and ensure that you arrive after 12. 00 midday and exit before 11. 00 am. Wonderful site though and well worth the nail biting last ten minutes of the journey.

Read the reviews on this site. The site is great and the staff are friendly. The on site pub had just reopened and the food was reasonable and their breakfasts are well worth the visit, so much we went twice. It was not a busy time of year so using the pool was fantastic as had it to ourselves at times but we would not want to be in it in the summer as it is small. We stayed in a pod which was fantastic and kept us warm with the heater. There were no tents just a few tourers. I would visit this place definitely in off peak times but not peak as it all feels tightly packed together If all the spaces were in use. The tent pitches had a lot of stones on it so we would not camp here but definitely will be back to stay in a pod between march to April or sept to oct.
