Yet another visit to this site - over the last 3 seasons we have seen numerous subtle changes/ improvements made, new trees planted, increased hardstandings, new sinks (very neatly done in the space allowed ) in the Gents washroom. Can't vouch for the ladies but if the gents are anything to go by they'll be spotlessly kept.

Must admit to having to disagree with the previous comments about bird noise/ bird cannons - after all it is in the country and I know 'townies' aren't used to that kind of noise and if they wish to object to it - then surely a less rural camping location would be more suitable for them

The washroom heating comments would be more viable if - the site was an ALL year round site (which it isn't) and the cost of staying there reflected it (which it doesn't)

It is exactly how camping should be - clean, tidy, well kept and excellently managed. Keep up the excellent work Pam and Billy, it is a credit to you both.

Spent 3 nights at Poppyland over the rainy May Day bank holiday weekend. The owners were very pleasant and helpful and the site is laid out really nicely with large pitches.

The location is great for exploring the coast and the 2 nearby NT properties.

The facility that really lets the site down is the showers. There is only 1 ladies, 1 gents and they are not heated in any way which is pretty impractical in the UK. It's also 50p to use them which seems a bit stingy given you are paying 20 a night anyway.

Being in the countryside, be prepared for the early morning cock-a-doodle do and geese honking, not to mention explosions which we think were bird cannons, but I guess that's why they invented ear plugs!

We stayed on this site over Easter weekend and when we arrived owner Billy was very welcoming and helpful. There is a portable cabin where inside is a washing up facility and emergency supplies available to purchase via an 'honesty box'.

Toilets and showers were nice and clean, although at this time of year a bit on the cold side inside. I did make a suggestion to Billy about installing some kind of heating to take the chill off, which I believe he took on board.

This is a nice quiet site located just 4 miles south of Cromer (very handy). Excellent pub just down the road at Alby with a nice selection of ales. We definitely will return to this site in the future.

This was our second visit to this site, the first being in a campervan, which we thoroughly enjoyed.

We bought our first caravan in August, and decided to go back to Poppyland for our first outing, as we remembered how friendly the owners were.

Well we were not disappointed. Billy greeted us on our arrival and immediately helped us reverse onto our pitch. He gave us some advice on how to set-up and sorted out a tv aerial cable for us.

This is a fab little site, really well kept. Nice and level, grass clippings collected, toilets/showers immaculately clean.

The hut providing local information is really useful. There is a washing machine, microwave and a freezer, from which you can purchase ice creams. You can also buy biscuits, crisps, chocolate plus useful things you may have forgotten like shampoo, washing up liquid etc.

The pub at South Repps, The Vernon Arms, does excellent food and there are other pubs, take-aways and a small shops within a couple of miles, but nothing in Thorpe Market itself.

Billy & Pam have worked really hard to make this a great camping experience for all. They are really friendly and helpful & Billy came over to help us on several occasions during the weekend, always with a smile on his face,

We really love this site, and although we love to travel around and visit new places, I think we will be drawn back here again and again.

Just returned from a long weekend at this lovely little site. Billy and Pam were most welcoming and keep the site immaculate. We were on a grass pitch but there were also hardstandings. Billy loaned us an aerial lead for the TV as ours wasn't long enough to reach the TV point provided. Nice touches like the hand soap and towels in the loos, a wooden cabin stocked with ice creams and essentials, use of a microwave, freezer and a washing machine if you need it. Showers were 50p. Everyone on site this weekend was very friendly. As we are local we didn't do any sightseeing but agree the nearby Groveland Farm shop is handy.

The site is well laid out and spacious. The facilities are kept very clean. The grass is very well manicured. There is a superb cabin which has sinks, a freezer, fridge, ironing board, a tv and much more. You can get your paper delivered to your pitch each morning.

The owners are very pleasant and helpful. This is a lovely site for caravans and if I ever had a caravan, I would have no hesitation in going back.

However, I would not return in my tent. During our 10 days there, we were the only tent for most of the time. We were given a pitch in a corner which was overhung by trees and on the lower part of the site. It felt rather dark and damp - not helped by the wet days (It gently slopes up from the road) It was also next to the chickens and the part of the site nearest to the main road.

Therefore there was a fair amount of noise. None of things things would have been such an issue in a caravan I'm sure.
