I can't see how it gets any better than this campsite! We pitched right next to the marina watching the boats come and go. The site is south facing so we had the sun all day. Our pitch had a small wooden fence in front that made us feel like 'this is our bit' which was great. It has a great pub, swimming pool with 'hot tub' and easy to use clean washing facilities about 30 seconds walk away. Fantastic place and I congratulate all the staff on their daily contribution to a great place. Keep up the good work. We'll be back!

This was my second visit in my touring caravan but I visit twice a year whilst on my boating holidays, March & October.

I decided to stay last minute, whilst in the area & my telephone booking was very quick and efficient and I arrived some 30 mins later.

Check in was very easy & pleasant.

I was given a Kingfisher pitch which is right at the back of the touring area with great views of the Marina, river and surrounding area.

The pitches have been made hard-standing / gravel since my last visit (Jan 2016)and the road way hardened plastic / grassed which would make pitching easier on a rainy day, which this was not.

The river is easily accessible for fishing which I did on my last day, relaxed by the river boat watching.

The Waveney Inn has a good selection of drinks available and very reasonable prices.

I did have a look in the new restaurant but did not eat on this occasion.

The site was busier than Jan 2016. But the showers were kept extremely clean.

All in all. Another fantastic visit. Will definitely return.

Thanks to all the staff.

Waveney river centre site was a great place to stay ! The staff were very friendly and obliging. Pitch was overlooking the marina. The showers were very clean with hot water. Individual rooms with toilet sink shower and hairdryer / which was free. We used the Ferry daily to cross the river to walk all day. Pub was very nice too! We take our own food so didn't sample the food. Evening food started st 6pm. Shop well s stocked with a nice gift section too.

We will return!

The drive from East Sussex was a good route.

So all in all a successful holiday.

We went to Waveney River Centre for a long weekend with a large family group with ages from 3 to over 70 years. The accomodation was a touring caravan, 2 Yurts, 1 Escape Pod and 3 Tents. We ate and drank in the on site Waveney Inn and hired a large cruising boat for a day. We used the swimming pool and all the facilities! I reckon we gave the site a complete road test!

We are very happy to report that this site is a real gem from every aspect - beautiful location, good clean and tidy amenities and helpful and polite staff. Our 15 person Sunday lunch in the Inn with nearly everyone ordering something different didn't faze them and was excellent. As was the beer! Four proper well kept and delicious cask ales were on tap.

Something we noticed was that the grounds were very clean and tidy with a regular crew of litter pickers.

Be prepared for a 5 mile run on narrow roads to the site but if you follow the site's instructions the road has plenty of passing places. We towed a big rig down, took it steady, and had no problem.

It was a really good stay and we will be going again.

I camped at the Waveney River Centre for 2 nights on one the Pintail pitches. The campsite was quite easy to find - it is marked on google maps, and selecting that location meant the satnav took us right there. There are also signposts for the last few miles which take a different route from the satnav down slightly wider roads. Whilst I stayed, the site was relatively empty. It was a peaceful site with great views over the river. We ate at the Waveney Inn where the bar staff were very friendly and the food was great. We also took a swim in the pool which was nice and refreshing - there was a hot tub as well as a small pool for swimming/paddling in.

The showers and toilets in the campsite were excellent - probably the best I've ever been to at a campsite.

We also hired a kayak for a day which was straightforward. We were leant a map of the surrounding area as well as a dry bag to keep valuables safe. The location meant we had the option of exploring the river Waveney as well as Oulton Broad.

Walking, most of the places to go are the other side of the river, and there is no bridge nearby the campsite for many miles. The campsite runs a ferry service across the river - though when we were there, this was more like a taxi - you called a phone number when you wanted to cross, which made it convenient as we didn't need to ensure we crossed at a particular time. However, this might operate to a regular schedule or something in high season.

The final few miles of road before arriving were a bit narrow but plenty of passing places. On arrival we were greeted with friendly helpful faces and advised where our pitch was. As we were just having a quick weekend to see if the site would be suitable for a longer summer holiday we were set up without an awning in no time. The views are superb and couldn't be more relaxing. So, off to the pub (the Waveney Inn) for lunch and what a lovely place it is to eat. Great service and great food, I would highly recommend. The camp site was just what we were looking for to spend a week with my ten year old daughter. Walks, boats, bikes, pool and a great little play area. We are going back!
