We stayed on this site from 11th to 25th July, and it is now top of our list of favourites. Its a beautiful site set in magnificent woodland, which provided a lovely sheltered pitch for us to set up on. We loved the way the pitches are set among the trees at random, rather than set in rigid rows either side of a roadway. Further down the site there are pitches with fewer trees for those who prefer a sunny spot. The site is very dog-friendly, and there are loads of lovely walks on the Sandringham estate. I'm sure our little dog enjoyed it as much as we did!

The toilets and shower blocks are kept spotlessly clean and well maintained, the staff in reception were very friendly and helpful, and the site itself was beautiful. We will be back, I'm sure!

We chose this site mainly because we wanted to visit the Sandringham House and Estate. The House and Estate are about a 15-30 mins level walk away depending on your level of fitness.

You are allowed to chose your own pitch and these are quite varied so you should be able to get what you want. We chose a hardstanding pitch for the motorhome.

There are two ways to access the site which are straightforward as long as you follow the Club Directions and not your SatNav's.

The site itself is well laid out and spacious and has three Sanitary Blocks spaced out aross it so you are never to far away from one. However we would think though that at peak times especially in August the facilities provided would struggle and the site would feel more crowded. The Sanitary Blocks although adequate could do with updating.

Overall a nice site to which we would return.

If Carlsberg did campsites.

This site is marvellous, well tended with embarrassingly clean facilities.

The site shop stocks those forgotten essentials and the staff are very friendly.

The pitches are well spaced and you can be in the open or amongst the trees.

There's even glamping!

If you were going to own your own campsite, it would pretty much look like this.

Nearby is Hunstanton to satisfy the kids and in the beautiful villages close by you will find great pubs and magnificent food.

Cromer is a short drive across country for that 'pier' experience, then come back along the coast, calling in at all the small villages.

We visited in the school summer holidays and also discovered that our visit included the Sandringham Flower Show which is a big event in its own right. The site was therefore very busy but the layout spreads people out nicely amongst the trees and between 3 toilet blocks. There is a good little site shop for bread, milk, papers to order etc but plenty of supermarkets in Kings Lynn and Hunstanton. Staff were cheerful and helpful. Wifi worked well on our pitch. EE mobile signal very weak. The fish and chip van (Tues, Thurs & Sat in the week we visited) was very popular!

The toilet blocks were clean and the ladies certainly always contained fresh flowers. Apparently the gents had one shower out of order which meant queues at busy times. There is a small play area and good fun to be had collecting buckets of pine cones for the site staff in return for a reward of a small chocolate bar.

The trees offer plenty of shelter but also provide home to hundreds of wood pigeons - you have been warned.

You can walk around the estate on miles of footpaths and visit the cafe/gift shop/church for free. You pay for the house and formal gardens - we didn't bother so can't comment on those.

One local quirky attraction is climbing the wind turbine at Swaffham - great fun and very interesting, apparently the only one in the world with a visitor viewing platform - but check details beforehand as age/height/health restrictions apply. For a less energetic option try the Norfolk Lavender fields on the main road to Hunstanton or the boat trips to see the seals from Morston harbour.

Lovely site. The showers need up dating, especially compared to West Runton. One problem we found, they ask you to mop out shower, fine, but the water in the bucket was filthy, so when you mopped there was hair and dirty water left in the shower tray, had to go back in and turn shower on to wash the tray out but then left dirty feet marks in the dressing bit and the scraper didn't work very well at all because of the surface

The approach road from the A148 is terrible, there are signs warning you, we came up there slowly but when we opened the caravan door we were met with broken plates, dishes, mugs and glasses scattered across the floor, we haven't had this problem before so don't think it was down to our packing. However, we will return as the site itself is very nice but won't take the dogs because of the seasonal canine illness has been known here quite seriously.

Being local didn't bother doing much as we could do it in a day from home and just wanted to chill. The layout of the site is nice as you can have sun, shade or completely wooded and it's nice to have the choice of where you pitch, as opposed to being told which pitch you are on. The wardens were helpful and efficient.

Stayed for three nights whilst touring the area. We choose the site as we were in some what of a 'heatwave' and wanted to get some shade. The pitches are set amongst the trees which gave us that.

The site is quite large and has a decent shop for the basics and camping equipment spares. A fish and chip van also visits the site, so that was a nice easy tea sorted!

The estate is very pleasant and had some nice walks in the woods and of course the option to visit house and surrounding grounds.

The facilities were fine, as it's C&CC though, perhaps they could do with an upgrade as you do expect a little better.

I'd happily use the site if we were in the area again.
