We visited the site a few years ago, and quite liked it, but on our recent visit I did notice a few faults, I suppose because we have visited quite a few sites now, and could compare.

On our first visit I think the shower/wc block were quite new, they are laid out well, but with the constant heat and damp, there is some very interesting and maybe harmful bacteria growing on the shower walls and ceiling, perhaps David Bellamy might like to study and add his comments on growths in the showers, in your next brochure.

The broads are easily accessed, as the site is on the waveney, the single track road could by quite dangerous to cycle, in my opinion.

The tent pitches are badly worn, and really need to be grass seeded, and maybe set aside to re'establish the grass, it cant be to comfortable to pitch your tent on rock hard earth or mud if it's raining.

We stayed in an ecpod which was ok, so have no complaints there.

We enjoyed the waveney inn pub on our first visit the 2 guys who ran the place were ok, that spoke to everyone and on the Saturday night played music, which was really good. It is now a very naff pretend pub/restaurant, we ate there my wife had fish and chips served on a cheese cutting board, and I had sausage and mash served in a cornflake bowl, maybe the plates hadn't been washed up, but the food was ok, and all the staff there were really good, I've given 10 out of 10 for customer service because of the bar staff, it's not a bad site really but needs a bit of TLC, it needs constant maintenance but perhaps the management/ owners don't realise that there income comes from there customers. Could be a fantastic site.

How this site has got such good reviews I do not know, the worst site we have been on in many years of motor homing. We paid for 4 nights but left after two feeling really disappointed. The pitch. Supposedly super pitch was so small we had to pitch our small awning sideways as we would have been walking out into bushes. The caravan next to us was only a couple of yards away so they could put awning and car on. The showers toilets were ok. But the site is miles from anywhere. There are no footpaths along the river. So when the expensive little ferry stops running at night you are stuck there. The on site pub/resteraunt is very very expensive two drinks cost us 9. 80 nearly 10 for a burger. Very cold air conditioned place with no atmosphere at all. I think they cater more for the visiting boat people. We complained when we left but were offered no refund. I wouldn't go to this site again if it was free. First bad review we have ever left.

This site is good for the novelty factor of looking at all the boats and hiring one for a day. The shop on site is good for essentials and the small swimming pool is handy for rainy days however the water was very cold and the changing facilities very strange as you have to walk through the reception area to get to the pool and back. The toilet block was always cleaned at its busiest time in the morning and evening and the layout of the shower block is such that you can't see if showers are available on the other side as it is a square block. The family showers are good though for washing the little ones. The pitch sizes are tiny. We had heron the first pitch on the site and it was really difficult to park the car there but we were told that we would have to pay an additional 5 per night to park it in the main car park! Although heron pitches are advertised as the smallest pitches we actually seemed to have more space than others and to be honest some caravans and tents only seemed to have 1 or 2 feet between them! There is no entry barrier to the park. We ate in the pub one night and found the food to be expensive for what it was as it was of average quality.

There was a horrible 'drain' smell near the wooden lodges.

Overall I'm glad we went for the novelty factor but would not want to go again. We stayed 4 nights and towards the end we were feeling claustrophobic as there just wasn't much space.

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. :-)
