After I booked at Two Mills I thought I'd check out reviews for the site, and I was wondering if I'd made a mistake. After arriving at two mills I could not understand why these other reviews were so negative. Tea and coffee on arrival, escorted to our pitch, which I must say is quite a good size, were on top acres which are the serviced pitches, where our tv works fine (for past reviews maybe a update of equipment) the toilets are spotlessly clean, everyone is so friendly and helpful. I'm sat in my awning at the moment writing this using the caraweb wifi, which as other people have said is a problem, yes I did have a issue, but after I contacted caraweb this issue was sorted out with a phone call from the supplier( a problem which I had caused my self) within 30 mins. I am struggling to find the words for Two Mills, great, quiet, fantastic, friendly. My wife and I WILL be returning, I'm just glad I booked before I read the reviews.
Having read the previous reviews, I called to discuss the issues that other people had raised. My concerns were dealt with fantastically, even checking pitch number to ensure size. We arrived on site an promptly broke down! We couldn't take our van to the pitch which was no problem at all. Out came a trusty defender with a front tow bar and within moments the van was sited and ready to set up. It seems that the site often put caravans on the pitches for their customers which I think is a lovely thing to do.
Other reviewers have mentioned the showers and how small they are. I don't totally agree with those comments having been there for two weeks and not being a skinny Minnie! They are perfectly adequate and are spotlessly clean with the shower curtains being changed regularly. I got caught in the shower curtain once but that was caused but me being daft!
We had no problems at all with water pressure. The problem was not of the sites making and has now been resolved and was certainly not worth mentioning.
The site was beautifully maintained and no problems at all with grass cuttings being thrown onto the van.
Here comes the best bits! The owners and the wardens. They are all wonderful and certainly go that extra mile to make sure you are ok. Lots of useful tips about things they have learned with their many years of caravan nine and doing the job they do.
We cannot praise them enough for a wonderful two weeks and for the little touches they gave that made things even better.
We met some lovely people on the site and many of them come time and time again.
We really hope that we will become regular visitors and just wish it wasn't quite so far from home
Keep up the amazing work Two Mills and we hope to see you all again soon.
How anyone can complain about this site beats me. Toilets and showers exceptionally clean. Owners and wardens very helpful and friendly. Constant weather forecast 'stone'. Pitches quite adequate and kept very tidy.
The area is very quaint and the beaches are A1. If you like old England this is a must. Cromer is a typical old seaside town, kept in excellent state of repair. Don't forget the crab.
All in all perhaps the best site we have visited. Will certainly return if in this area again.
Just spent 1 week at Two Mills and it was our 5th Tranquil Site, visited in the past 3 years. I must say I was rather disappointed with the site - as previously said, the pitches are extremely close together, I would get my husband to drive the car onto the gravel path before I got in the passenger door as I felt I was encroaching on our neighbouring caravans privacy otherwise.
The hedges at the back of the pitches were in dire need of trimming back and the ground below could have done with raking / brushing away the fallen debris. Before I could let our dogs out of the car on arrival, I had to brush the thorny branches away for fear of them getting damaged paws. It might sound petty! But these are the qualities I look for in a 5 star tranquil site. Tidy pitches you don't have to clean before you put the legs down.
I like wildlife, but hey, there are wood pigeons and there are more wood pigeons! It was a haven for them, never got to have a lie-in after 6am due to the noisy things on top of the caravan roof! I'm sure someone was putting bread on our roof overnight so they would be there first thing in the morning !
Jokes apart, they were everywhere
We hired a Sky box from reception for £4 plus £1 per night after as the reception at Two Mills is non existent, but if we managed to get 3 hours of tv in the whole week, I'm exaggerating. Even with the box, it was bad
The wifi was free sitting by reception or you could purchase wifi (caraweb) from reception. Not the cheapest we have had via caraweb either, but even that kept crashing, but apparently that has nothing to do with Two Mills, so I shall be trying to contact Caraweb and let them know. Perhaps if they sited the wifi aerial in a better location they would have fewer problems.
Dog walk was fine but the red bins could do with being emptied a little more often, they stunk to put it mildly,
There is a Sainsburys and Waitrose and Lidl in the town and a Tesco in Stalham about 15 mins left out of the site.
Wroxham is a beautiful town with the rivers running through there. The beaches are only max 35 mins away too. Best beach in uk is Sea Palling oh my god, its like walking along the beach in Dominican it was so lovely.
Spent a week at this site, being the eighth Tranquil Site we have visited. We were keen to revisit the east coast towns of Cromer, Sheringham and Great Yarmouth and surrounding areas, years after our last visit and after the kids have grown up and gone, on an adults only site.
The site was set out in three tiers, we had booked and paid a little extra for a 'Panoramic' pitch which was on the middle level.
This middle tier had about 10 pitches, when we were escorted to the plot, we were informed that on our 'Panoramic' pitch we were to uncouple the caravan, and with assistance, push the 'van forwards onto the concrete stand.
This resulted in a perfectly level positioning of the unit and a panoramic view of. A tree and some bushes.
At a loss to figure out the reason for this, my wife noticed steel anchor points at each corner of the concrete base, together with the drain hole at the (now) rear of the pitch, we wondered if this base was built originally to site a static caravan perhaps, and to charge a premium, to site a tourer the wrong way around on these oversized slabs, would truly be a stroke of marketing genius!
(concrete slabs adjacent to concrete base for 'Panoramic' seating area, was a haven for numerous ant's nests, the occupants of which eventually invaded several caravans. )
Toilets on our level had only one cubicle so mostly walked down to lower level.
Charges made for Satellite boxes and wi-fi.
The hotel opposite had functions at weekends with loud music until late.
Two Mills is an ideal base to tour the area and resorts.
We have just returned from a weeks stay, enjoying some of the best weather this year. Our only other stay at this site was in 2002, when it was our first outing with our first caravan, and the pitch was in the lower part of the site. Interesting to revisit as more experienced caravanners, and booked a fully serviced pitch on the more recent 'Top Acre'
The positives: the pitch was gravel, with enough room for caravan and awning, was level, and raked. The car is parked alongside on grass. There is free wi-fi available around the Reception area. Wi-fi access in your van is available on various plans, we booked for a week, and had an excellent connection. Check in was smooth and efficient by the owners and we were escorted to the pitch by a warden. If you have a dog, there appeared to be arrangements for on site short walks. We found T. V. Reception in the 'Top Acre' good.
The Not Quite So Positives: Our pitch was very 'tight'. The car must park on the grass strip alongside the gravel area for caravan and awning. Our only space for sitting out was behind the car, or, as we only used a porch awning, on the gravel behind. We did not have much privacy, and weekend arrivals who smoked and had an outside radio affected our enjoyment, even though the radio was low - on larger pitches, this would not have been a problem.
There were some larger pitches, but in our area, these appeared to be occupied by seasonal reservations.
Loud music from a nearby venue on Friday and Saturday night did go on until after midnight.
During this week grass cutting left clippings on the grass.
To sum up this site would not appear in our 'TopTen', it was adequate, but not impressive for a five star site.
