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.

This is a beautiful site, all the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was very clean with great facilities. Quite a large site with 3 shower and toilet blocks which were checked every hour and were always clean.

This is a very beautiful site with great surroundings & very peaceful, with a woodland area or open field.

Sandringham house is definitely worth a visit and only a short walk away. We'll definitely be back next year for a longer stay.

Large site but still feels very spacious. Lovely woodland setting.

Facilities are adequate and lovely and clean, but could do with an update to keep up with the competition. Site staff are very friendly and helpful.

The on site dog walk is possibly the best we have ever come across, it circles the site and dogs can be off lead which is always a bonus for dog and owner :)

Their new 'ready tents' are very roomy with everything there ready for guest, they are fantastic for families looking to try out camping without spending on equipment.

The surrounding area is a walkers paradise, dogs will love the endless woodland walks. Sandringham house and gardens are well worth a visit.

My only whinge is the lack of good signage around the woodlands, I would have loved longer walks but as my sense of direction is faulty I was afraid of getting lost in the woods!

We took a look around the neighbouring Caravan club site as members of both, facilities are of the same standard, but this site felt less spacious with their pitches mostly in regimental rows. Of the two sites I am glad we chose the Caravan and Camping club site.

Our second visit to this site and we will definitely return as soon as we can.

Firstly the welcome; other site wardens from the Friendly Club could do with taking lessons from the wardens here because their welcome is just how it should be. Warm, friendly, efficient and with a smile. All contact with both of them and their assistants was the same. They are a credit to the club.

The site is enormous but with a small site feel to it. Acres of space, large pitches, I can imagine that even when full this site would still feel spacious. There are pitches to suit every taste from shady to sunny, in the trees, under the trees, away from the trees. The whole place oozes relaxation and peace.

If as we do, you enjoy nature and its noise then this is the site for you. Owls hooting and screeching throughout the night; wonderful, plus lots of rabbits running about, deer very close by and the foxes even paid a visit one night. If you are bothered by real countryside sounds then this is not the site for you!

Set in a great area for cycling and walking but if on a bike don't believe the old fallacy that Norfolk is flat, it isn't! Fabulous beaches close by at so many places including Hunstanton, Holmes Dunes, Thornham, Titchwell and Brancaster. Lots of RSPB and Norfolk Wildlife Trust places to visit plus all the very picturesque villages. Oh yes and there's a big house up the road inhabited by a monarch.

There are a good range of supermarkets within 5 - 7 miles in Kings Lynn and Hunstanton plus a couple of smaller convenience stores in Dersingham, just down the road and if all else fails there is a perfectly adequate site shop too.

I cannot praise this site enough. The facilities are clean and the site is well kept and cared for. Idyllic.
