Reviewer: Nellyspania 2 reviews from this member

We stayed here as part of a group of couples with children.

It was a mixed bag really!

The main plus points:

Outdoor pool is really warm.

Plenty for kids to do.

Right next to Burgh castle (huge old roman fort) and Breydon water (stunning sunsets).

The main negatives:

Shower block is really dated and pretty grotty.

Lots of pitches missing grass and got very gritty when it rained.

Really noisy at night - we were lucky enough to be on the perimeter as the units are squashed together in the middle and this was where most of the noise was coming from.

I hate to come across as a snob but there was also some groups staying who were a bit rough and rowdy, including one couple who had a blazing row at 7. 30am on the sunday and screaming obscenities at each other.

Probably wouldn't stay again.

Stayed at this site for 7 nights from a Monday to Monday. Been before but will not be going back as the negatives far outweigh the positives.

Plus points:-

1. Good location for exploring the local area including Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft, Norwich (use park and ride) to name just a few.

2. Good sized level pitches

3. 16A EHU at all pitches

4. Reasonably cheap if booked in advance

Minus Points:-

1. The approach roads are extremely bumpy and the speed bumps on site are quite high especially when towing a caravan so make sure everything is well secured.

2. The toilet block cleanliness leaves much to be desired despite the best from John, the touring warden. The chairs in the showers were always dirty, toilets were often not flushed and the elsan disposal was very often used but not flushed.

3. There was only 1 water point at the shower block and the tap did not have a screw type hose attachment.

4. Although there was always hot water in the shower block, it was necessary to continually press the button during a shower as the longest time for water to run was around 10 seconds.

5. Many grass pitches were actually devoid of grass. If the weather had been wet I'm sure these would have turned into mud-baths very quickly.

6. The noise levels and number of children who used the shower block unattended despite notices to say they must be with an adult, rose rapidly as the weekend campers arrived.

As stated at the beginning, this was our 3rd visit to this site and probably our last.

Lovely friendly site, the staff very helpful especially John, nothing was too much trouble. The grandson (8) was made up with the crazy golf, go karts and the football area. The pitches were spacious and flat and there was no problem about my daughter and her family putting their tent on the pitch next to our van. The village shop/post office adjacent to the site, is small but has all the basics and the staff friendly and helpful, also there is a chip shop over the road, there are a couple of major supermarkets a few mins drive away though. There is a bus stop outside the camp where you can get the bus into Great Yarmouth and Gorleston which has a lovely beach. Nice walk from the site to Burgh castle which takes you down to Breydon water. The showers were a bit tired but did the job but as with a lot of sites had nowhere to put your shower gel/ shampoo and didn't have curtains or a barrier to protect your clothes but they were spacious so it wasn't really a problem, the same with the wash basins. Nowhere to put your wash things or towel, there was only one private wash cubicle and the hot water didn't work, apparently it never has !My daughter asked at reception about hiring a baby bath and was told they didn't do that but the sink in the baby changing room was big enough so she used that, then whilst the grandson was on the go karts we noticed that the attached bike hire shop did indeed hire baby baths amongst other things ! maybe a bit of communication went adrift. The weather wasn't as good as we would like so didn't use the outdoor pool but the grandson did use the indoor one in the sister site over the road. The entertainment was good on the nights we used the club and the meals were good value, beer a bit pricey but that's the norm. All in all a good family site.

This site is a nice site ideal for touring Norfolk, seeing the broads, good area for long walks, pet friendly, clean facilities, plenty for children to do, for adults good bar next door in Kingfisher, ground mostly flat well kept by John the warden very helpful, another site over the road which can be used has a gym, pool, shop but mainly statics, bus stop outside shop gate for Gt Yarmouth

This was our second visit to Brayden water, and was just as happy as the first, its a great friendly small park with lots of entertainment, it is very relaxing and has a great staff that are always on hand, perfect for children and safe, also if you like walks by the river its also a great site will go again this year,

Reviewer: Bangayfamily 1 review from this member

Stayed bank holiday pre weekend for our first ever camping trip, tent was a borrowed one so not 100% on getting the thing up, but a kind fellow camper offered to help (good spirit of camping ?) facilities are basic as you would expect but all you needed close by, shop was not adequate for size of camp so be aware you will need to get basics daily if no fridge to store it in during very hot weather, club was well provided for all ages although during bingo they expect children to be quiet ! tad unfair as at end of the day kids are excited to be on holiday, prices reasonable and some good deals, make sure you take a couple of different size plugs for the washing up facilities as it has none, pitches during peak times get very cramped. One of the better pitch sizes within the park resorts group, tents are getting bigger to accommodate families so I think they need to re look at pitch spaces. Ideal site for a relaxing break but not good if you want beaches as you would have to drive for 20 minutes either way
