Right from the first contact (by intercom at the entrance barrier) our experience at this site echoed all the good remarks that have preceded. In fact, if we were able to mark out of 100 instead of ten any departure from the 100 would be no more than nitpicking. Traffic noise from the nearby A47 is more by day than by night but really does not intrude to any degree and in any case the site is surrounded by trees with lush growth which drown out most of it. £14. 50 per night inclusive of hookup, showers and wifi is first class value.

Swaffham town is a 10 minute walk away - try the former railway path from the end of the site - with a wide variety of shops, eating places and services including a very interesting museum. The architecture of the town centre is very pleasing - look above the shop fronts. The large area of allotments we discovered was a particular source of pleasure for my wife, a keen gardener, chinwagging with the friendly locals.

The only item on the site we thought could possibly be improved would be a little more lighting in the central, grassed areas - if you need to visit the amenities block (excellent!) by night it's a bit on the dark side. However, considering that most units now have on board toilets this is not a big problem so I've not marked it down for that.

Many owners of sites we have visited over the past 40 years would do well to visit this one and take notes!

All in all an excellent experience.

I knew the visit would be good experience when I rang to ask for a short notice booking. 'yes, sure we'll save you a spot' said the owner, 'Great' said I 'how much deposit do you want'

'There's no need for that' was the reply.

In fact throughout our stay the owners of this site showed that they have trust in their customers and were in no hurry to take our money until the day were leaving. No extras were added for the showers (new with oodles of hot water), the awning nor the TV connection.

How different is this to the money-grabbing penny pinching policies of many site owners. Also, noticeable by their absence were those irritating little notices and warnings that some site owners insist on pinning up everywhere.

There is a little road and aircraft noise but it didn't bother us and the site is very peaceful due to the absence of kids but it is not exclusively for the oldies. In fact there were quite a few young people camping on the grass areas between the vans but they were all pleasant and well behaved. Swaffham is a pleasant little town ideally placed for touring Norfolk or Suffolk and this is a lovely site run by a lovely couple who know how to treat their guests. We will definitely be going there again.

We stayed here for 5 nights in March. Easy to find just off the A47, yes there is a bit of background noise from the road, but not that intrusive, also being adult only it was very peaceful. On arrival we were greeted by Andy (the owner) and given a choice of pitch and given details of the facilities which unfortunately at the time were undergoing renovations and so weren't in the best of shape, although perfectly adequate, hence the slightly lower mark. There is also the hut that is reception with leaflets etc. We couldn't get our satellite system to work and as ours was not long enough, Andy lent us an extension digital cable to plug into the digital point supplied at the hook up. Excellent tv coverage was restored! Swaffham is about a 15 minute walk down the road, a quaint little place that had a few pubs and cafes. There is also an Asda & a Co-op for any shopping needs and a small market held on Saturdays which was a nice place to wander round. We also had a drive out to Wells next the sea and Hunstanton lovely quaint seaside towns. All in all a little gem of site close to a pleasant little village/town. We will definitely visit again to sample the new improved facilities and tour this area again.

Have just returned from a week at this lovely site. On arrival we were given a warm and friendly welcome by Andy the owner. All the pitches are hard standing which was a blessing with all the recent wet weather. No need to mention the facilities, which were clean and warm, because a new replacement block is in the process of being built.

Swaffham is a 10 minute walk, with all the amenities that you could need. We can recommend the Pedlar Café for meals and breakfasts.

This site is in a perfect location for exploring the Norfolk coast, and within reach of the bigger towns such as Kings Lynn and Norwich.

We will definitely be returning.

We spent probably the best week of our caravan holiday this year at Breckland Meadows, the fine weather helped. The friendly site owners keep the whole place immaculate and are always on hand - and willing - to help.

The town of Swaffham is a typical Norfolk market town, albeit a little run down (like most small towns these days), with plenty of good places to eat. There are 3 supermarkets (Asda, Co-op and Waitrose) all within a 20 minute walk of the site.

Over the August Bank Holiday weekend we visited the Swaffham Free Music Festival set in the market square - superb.

Will definitely return.

Well situated for a stroll into the pleasant market town of Swaffham. I always like sites where you can wander into the town.

We were welcomed by an extremely pleasant chap who couldn't have been more helpful and genuinely friendly.

At £14. 50 a night for a pitch with EHU, the value is outstanding, and free Wi-Fi is available. You'll struggle to beat that anywhere else. Plenty of other folks seem to agree as there was barely a free pitch mid-week.

The office has a range of local produce (jams, etc. )to tempt you, and we found it very useful for a load of flyers for local attractions.

The pitches are a tad small, and I'd describe the toilets as functional. But I'd not hold it against this site as everything else clearly demonstrates the owner is keen to welcome visitors to the area.
