The site as others have said is large but doesn't feel that way.
Its like a big horse shoe, starting at the reception going up the hill back down the other side and finishing the other side of the golf course which you drive across to get to the entrance.
Its divided into little terraces and copse some of which were quite secluded. We found the flattest pitch we could but it was still very uneven and the front legs were at their limit.
The toilet blocks are very clean, I think there were four of them, the one nearest to us seemed quite modern though a couple of the toilets tended to get blocked.
There's a fella comes round every morning selling newspapers, a chip van comes on wed & sat, and there are a few basic supplies available from reception. In the village there's a spar shop and a morrisons in Cromer.
There are loads of footpaths connected to the site, I found a different one every morning whilst taking the dog for a walk.
There's a pub at the golf course and one in the village, Its an easy walk to both but take a torch for the walk back.
When out and about in the car along the coast there are pay and display carparks everywhere, they want you to come in your car but you will have to pay for it. A lot were £1 for an hour or two, one was £3. 50 !
All in all we had an enjoyable stay and would definitely return
Lovely site spread over hillside location, terraced in many parts so gives an overall impression of a smaller site. We pitched in secluded glade on our own as other two pitches were not taken. Shaded by woodland but we knew that it wasn't going to be a sunny weekend
Excellent location - both Sheringham and Cromer can be accessed by cycle or by train which runs hourly from early morning until late evening. Station about 10 minutes walk from top of the site
Beach 20 minutes walk from site - also possible to walk into Sheringham along the beach footpath
Stayed for a week shame it could not be for longer, this is a great site to visit the Norfolk area.
Approach road to the site is quite narrow, and passes through a golf course - but nothing too daunting, the site itself is quite large, but landscaping makes it feel small and intimate, we were pitched on 'High corner' which had great views out to sea - levelling blocks were required, as the pitch was very uneven.
As usual the facilities were spotless, and the site is generally very well maintained, the reception sells a few essentials,and the wardens were helpful, and friendly.
In West Runton you will find a few shops including a caravan / camping accessory shop, and a nice cafe / tea room.
The site is adjacent to the railway station so is ideal if you want to leave the car behind, we went to Norwich on the train for the day which was a bargain at £7 per person return.
Only drawback at the time of our visit was an abundance of flies -
After arriving a little after the 8pm dead line, was met by a very helpful warden who jokingly told me off for being late and to find a pitch, then to return to reception.
We chose a pitch tucked away in the corner of a terrace, which there are many of, that was quite level (makes a change for this site) but still needed blocks. The site seems to be divided into wooded, secluded areas and open areas.
On the Saturday the site started to fill quickly and I thought that the area that we had chosen was rather tight (pitch number 149). This was close to the play area though. The showers and toilets very clean, but looking a bit tired.
West Runton beach is a short drive or a long walk but there is a pub to visit about half way. Dogs are allowed on certain sections of the beach.
My personal recommendation is always would I go back, and the answer is easy for this site, yes. The walks are great, the beaches great, Cromer nice and Sherrignham better.
What a lovely site, very big but doesn't feel it almost set out on two separate sites, both areas have lovely big pitches we stayed on the area closest to the children's play area and our 7 year old boy loved it, made lots of friends and it felt very safe. The other area of the site seems quieter and has some wonderful views (some seaviews).
Facilities excellent as usual CC standards, but some nice extra touches, van selling newspapers comes round every morning, also ice cream van in the early evening, and fish and chip van twice a week.
In a wonderful location with lovely walks, through a golf course into the village of West Runton and the beach, easily walked in 15 mins taking your time. Lovely beach with cafe and gift shop and if you decide to take the car £2 for all day. West Runton has a spar, cafe, camping shop(Very useful) and a general store also a very nice pub called the Village Inn with a lovely beer garden.
Love this area, 2 miles from Cromer, Sheringham and close to Wells, Hunstanton etc loads to do and there is a train station in 5 mins walking distance from the site which goes to all these places and Norwich if you don't want to drive.
We loved it so much we left our caravan in storage there and are going back for most of the summer holidays instead of going to Dorset.
