Our first time staying at Two Mills and have to say first impressions we were impressed!

Having travelled for 4.5 hours we stumbled out of the car and wandered over to where the wardens were sitting outside reception. Very warm welcome and even offered a tea/coffee. We were shown to our pitch which answered our needs, sheltered, always good with a tent, although not closed in and sunny, always a must. We were grateful to be pitched in the lowest of the three sections as higher up it was rather windy. (Having been caught out at Easter 2016 in Storm Katie we are now rather careful on our pitches) Could not wish for more even had our own water tap. Pitches are a good size made up of stones and a grass area for the car/to sit out on.

They do freeze ice packs but you don¡¦t have access to them they are locked in the freezer so only accessible during reception open hours. There is a TV in there open till 9pm if you feel the need. We like a break and make the most of the evenings by playing cards/board games.

There are two shower blocks to cover the three terraced areas, very clean, no problems. Plenty of hot water but in the shower you have to keep pushing the button to get water. There is also a lovely new washing up area in the block nearest to reception.

The gates are not locked at night although they ask you to keep noise to a minimum when moving around early or late, shame our caravan neighbour didn't, out slamming doors at 0645 and driving off. Nothing the campsite can do, just someone not so thoughtful as most of us!

They allow dogs on site and they must be on a lead, one for hating dogs could not believe it when one arrived outside my tent only to be told by the owner it is harmless, having had encounters before with dogs I beg to differ! I did mention this to one of the park wardens /owners they were kind enough to ask if we wanted to move pitches. We declined as only there for the weekend, but nether the less a lovely gesture.

You can walk into North Walsham along the road, there is only about 200 yards with no path but you can walk on the little track that is on the bank. The rail station is just over a mile away, took us around 25 minutes. There is a machine on one of the platforms for tickets and you can go to Norwich and Great Yarmouth one way and to Cromer and Sheringham the other. There is a Lidl and Sainsbury in town.

Across the road from the campsite you can eat and drink at the Scarborough Hill Country Hotel. There are steps up there saving you having to walk down the road and up the driveway. Staff there are lovely and friendly. You can drink in the cosy bar area or have a meal. You might want to book if eating as it is only a small hotel. Nothing was too much trouble and they accept dogs. There are other eateries but we only tried the hotel as was so local.

Lots to do in the area, the Broads are not far away, there are National Trust properties etc and if you turn left out the campsite a little way down on the left is a nursery (cheap plants) and a lovely tearooms if looking for a nice lunch. There is also a nice loop around the top of the campsite for a short walk.

Would we return, yes we would despite the time travelling, the site met our needs, no kids but then most of our camping is at adult only sites. Everywhere you went in Norfolk people were so friendly. See you in 2017 ļ

Just spent 4 nights at this wonderful peaceful touring site. The owners were so helpful and made you feel nothing was too much trouble. The wardens Jane Ray Lee and Karen couldn't be more helpful. On arrival we were escorted by the warden to our pitch and were able to ask questions. This was such a clean site the showers and toilets were spotless. The only noise you heard was the birds singing. You could walk into the town by cutting through the field it took about 20 mins to do this. Wroxham Broads is about 9 miles away. So beautiful there or you could go a bit further about 13 miles and park and ride to Norwich. Massive shopping area here. We also went to Sherringham again about 15 miles. So with all the peace and quiet of the site you can get the best of both worlds by relaxing on the site or popping out with not very far to travel. We will certainly be returning to this site for sure and look forward to meeting Barbara Ray and their staff and not forgetting Millie the beautiful cat. Thank you guys for a great stay.

We visited Two Mills in November to get a last few days away before parking up for the winter. This was our second visit to the park having last visited 4 years ago and were originally attracted by the parks adults only policy & that it was rated 5 star by both the East of England Tourist Board & the AA.

On arrival we were offered a tea or coffee & were then shown to our pitch. The wardens were very friendly & helped us put up our awning, they were the same ones that were there on our previous visit. We had booked a super pitch which had a mains water tap & a grey waste drain point on the pitch plus a 16amp hook up to one of the new type bollard outlets that were lit up at night.

There were now two shower & toilet buildings, a new one on the Panorama level & the original one near the reception building which had been renovated since our last visit, both were immaculately clean.

There were two recycling areas with a bank of large bins but the slots to put the refuse in were not very big so you could only put a medium size sack in not a large one.

There are red dog waste bins around the park for dog owners to dispose of their pets waste so no reason for owners not to pick up after them.

TV reception is poor but each pitch has a satellite hook up point for those who have satellite decoders in their TV or have a satellite box or. You can hire a box from reception & the warden fits it in for you.

Wifi is free in the reception area but there is a charge for one that will work in your caravan, we only used the free one which was fine for our needs.

In the reception area there is an information centre for attractions & menus for local restaurants, you can make yourself a tea or coffee and borrow DVDs, CDs or books. There is also a small screen TV to look at while you have a coffee. We will certainly be visiting again.

Stayed at the end of September, must have been the driest week in the year & the sun came out too.

Lovely site, we had a full service pitch.

Arrived with an offer of tea and a friendly chat.

Very quiet and peaceful.

Toilets and showers very clean.

Very good restaurant just up the road, about 100 yards I would say, prices very reasonable.

And you can pop in at any time for a drink, dog friendly, but not in the restaurant area.

Def go back, but for 2 weeks next time.

This is an attractive site split on three levels with good planting with grounds that are well looked after by the helpful warden’s. The serviced pitches are well laid out with a mixture of concrete and gravel, and gravel bases. Judging by the number of fully set up caravans around the park with no one at home there are a high proportion of seasonal pitches.

My partner and I are both retired and are enthusiastic tourers, Two Mills was the fourteenth site we have stayed at so far this year, and therefore we have seen a lot of sites to form a comparison. Please remember this as you read on. Two Mills has a plaque in reception awarding it a five star rating for 2015.

Even though the park is split into three tiered levels there are only two toilet blocks and only one chemical waste point which is located in the lower toilet block, more on that later. The newer block on the second tier is well laid out but suffers from inadequate ventilation and has a damp smell about it. On one trip to the Gents facilities two shower stalls were in use and the whole building was filled with steam, so much so that condensation was running down the walls. This section of the building needs roof vents just like the Ladies section and an extractor fan far better than the small single domestic one installed.

The facilities on the first level close to reception are the oldest, and are now in need of restoration. It has a coin operated hair drier in the Gents which is the first I have ever seen at any location. However the facility which annoyed me the most was the chemical waste point. It’s not a nice job at the best of times emptying and cleaning the cassette, but why oh why is the flushing tap push operated and set to such a low pressure it takes ages to get enough water in the cassette to rinse it. The hose is also too short to reach the outflow neck of the cassette so you have to hold the hose with one hand whilst stretching to the back of the hopper to keep the button pressed on the tap in! This is the only CWP on the whole site and should be better. The second time I paid a visit to the CWP I took my watering can with me and filled it from a nearby tap, much easier.

The site is not a tranquil as we had hoped for. It hosts a large wood pigeon populatation in its trees; we had four breeding pairs within six feet of our caravan. If conditions are right wood pigeons will breed all year, and every day from 5am the males started their cooing… It was enough to drive you mad. The wardens caravan has a plastic stoat on the roof to keep the pigeons away, I suggest you get one. Add to that those dog owners that allow their dogs to bark and yap. The park is also under the approach path for helicopters into Norwich Airport, and the RAF have fighter jet exercises overhead two days a week.

I really do hate to give bad reviews about a site we have stayed at, but Two Mills needs to look at it’s self from a visitors point of view. Oh yes, wifi is free if you go to reception, however from your caravan it will cost £12. 50 a week. The internet is where most touring parks get their business these days, so to be charged for it's use when you are staying there is not on.

But, we still had a great holiday. Norfolk is a great place to visit, the Broads are beautiful, Norwich is a great city, and the Cromer crab and lobster a must. The free range eggs from Meale & Sons Farm Shop on the A149 heading for Gt Yarmouth are some of the best we have ever eaten.
