Very lovely and relaxing site. Our first trip out in our new motorhome. Lovely owners, very helpful. Simple site so if you are looking for a quiet site with views over the fields at sunset and sunrise then this is the site for you. There are no arcades or loud music. Toilet and shower block very clean. Hot water. Good washing up facility if you were in a tent. Walk to town is 10-15 minutes to cley but wiveton is close and the pub in wiveton is lovely. As novice motor homers we didn't have levelling chocks. You do need them on this site so come prepared. A lovely site which we will visit again.

Just had a very good 10 night stay at Rectory Hill. The owners were very friendly, helpful and pleasant. Any issues were dealt with immediately.

The toilets/showers are cleaned regularly. There is only one toilet for men, one for women and a separate disabled loo, but even when the site was full, I only had to queue for the ladies twice. I never had to wait for a shower, not dd my husband and son. There was always soap at the basins and usually paper towel for drying hands. There as plenty of room in the showers, and a chair in each, plus hooks for clothes/towel.

Some tent pitches have hook-up but there were no EHU pitches left when I booked in May, so if you need it, book early!

There is no play area but there is room for kids to play - the site speed limit is 5mph so if people stick to it, kids are safe. The camping area is also well away from the road.

The site is very peaceful and in a great location for exploring North Norfolk, with lots of nature and bird reserves in the area, beaches, pretty villages and market towns, good walking area. Cley beach is a shingle beach but we enjoyed an afternoon there and there is some sand when the tide is out.

The on-site shop was not open while we were staying, but Charles got bacon and eggs for us when we asked for them - the site isn't really big enough for a shop to be cost-effective. The deli in Cley is expensive, but sells milk and locally-made bread at fairly standard prices for the area. There is a Spar shop in Blakeney and a Budgens in Holt - Holt has lots of shops, including butchers, fruiterers. Wells-next-the Sea has a good butchers, bakers and deli.

The 3 Swallows pub in Cley is very good - friendly staff and a lovely big beer garden. Food was good too.

All-in-all we had a lovely stay and would definitely return.

I've just returned from a 2 night stay at the Rectory Hill campsite.

I have to say that I really enjoyed my stay, the site is quite small and the owner very friendly.

Because of the location of the site, there is hardly any road noise and kids are safe run around the whole area.

The shower facilities again are quite compact but more than adequate for the small number of people on site at any time.

The local area is stunning and scenery is amazing. I would advise a trip into Cley village and Blakeney just 1 mile don the road.

Overall I would recommend a stay at the Rectory Hill campsite, Just confirm the overnight price on booking.

Great site in a great location.

Just arrived back from a four night stay at Rectory Hill Barns campsite.

The site is brilliant. It is flat and very quiet and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The shower blocks were always clean. The site owner was very friendly and popped up and down the site to attend to the toilets and washing up area but he was never in your face.

Cley next the Sea is a lovely village and one very close to my heart as my mum was born there, my parents were married there, I was christened there and my grandparents are buried there.

The Three Swallows is a lovely pub and serves great food and Picnic Fayre deli provides a vast range of delicious products.

The beach at Cley is mostly shingle owning to the flood defences but well worth a visit. It is very quiet and great for a walk.

Wells next the Sea, Sheringham and Cromer are all close.

We stayed at this lovely little site for two nights at the end of June 2013 and would happily return.

There are lots of pretty villages/walks in the local area - the site was popular with walkers and dog owners. There are also two local pubs within easy reach.

As previous reviewers have mentioned, the owner was very helpful - he rang and responded to my booking enquiry and gave directions to the site etc. He also checked how we were during our stay and helped with our queries about the local area etc.

The site is very small and peaceful, with lovely views across fields.

For those of you who like to keep in touch, note that mobile reception is limited and there is no 3G/WiFi.

There is a new shower block (it would be helpful to have a couple of shelves in the ladies loo and in each of the showers). A deep clean of the facilities would help to ensure they remain in tip top condition.

A small a laundry room next to the shower block doubles up as an information point (local leaflets and travel information). There is also a small on site shop selling eggs and essentials.

The washing up area has two sinks and was clean & tidy at all times.

Picnic benches were dotted around the site(we used one for the duration of our stay) - there are not enough benches for one per pitch, unsure if this would be an issue during peak season).

We have an electric coolbox (unfortunately all EH were taken when we stayed), and it would have been good to have either a fridge or freezer on-site for those without electric (we were there for two very hot days and keeping food cool was a problem). A small fridge/freezer could be sited in the laundry room if the washer/dryer were put on top of each other. The owner did freeze our ice packs for a small charge but access to a fridge/freezer would be preferable.

The pitches are a little uneven/bumpy, there is no shelter/cover for the grass pitches - but these are not a major concern.

All in all a very pleasant stay, we look forward to returning!

Just returned from a very enjoyable week at Rectory Hill campsite. Very attentive owners and facilities all kept clean and ample for the amount of people staying there.

Not many pitches which made it very friendly ; 5 hard standings with EHU and water taps. Grass only pitches as well opposite the hard standing. Lovely evenings sat watching the herons land in the trees opposite, and we saw hares and barn owls.

About a 20 minute walk into Cley with Deli and shops and bus stop for the Coasthopper to get to Cromer in one direction and Wells in the other. Lovely sandy beaches all along this coast with many very good pubs.

Pubs in walking distance of campsite as well were excellent.

A longer walk into Holt but a lovely town - Norfolk people very friendly - a lovely lady stopped and gave us a lift back from Holt even though we had a dog!

Highly recommend the area and particularly the camp site.
