Arrived to be greeted by owner. Very nicely maintained site, small and clean. Toilet/shower block clean and well thought out. Very pleased with site overall and would recommend to anybody wishing for a tranquil stay. Very close to the river with Potter Heigham bridge about a mile hence. No shop, but shop at Potter Heigham if you cant live without one. Lovely helpful owners.

A lovely, efficiently run and informally managed small site in a quiet location in the heart of The Broads. Friendly, helpful and caring owners live adjacent to the site which caters for tourers, motorhomes and tents. Pitches have 16 amp hook-ups and there is an up to date, well kept facilities block.

There are walks from the site including along the riverbank to Potter Heigham or Thurne with plenty of boating activity to watch en route. The coast with sandy beaches, Broads with walks, boating and charming villages and Norwich and Gt. Yarmouth are all within easy driving range. Food shopping and fuel are also nearby.

We are already planning our return.

A lovely little site, really pretty with excellent facilities ranging from picnic benches to magazines to borrow and fresh flowers in the shower room. We were there over a really hot couple of days and the way the site is laid out provides natural shade as well as evening sunshine.

Potter Heigham is a pleasant 20 minute walk along the river bank. Potter Heigham is a practical rather than pretty Broads village but there is a bar and cafe and shop and its a good place from which to hire a day boat.

Chose to go for a weekend with friends to this campsite at short notice. It isn't too far away from where we live but as it was only a weekend, we didn't want to go far. We chose a lovely weekend, weather wise and had a relaxed time. The campsite is virtually at the end of a small dead end road, a short walk to the river.

Apart from one other motor home, us and our friends were the only people on there. There were half a dozen seasonal caravans on site and only one of these had overnight visitors. We had the site pretty much to ourselves. It is a smallish site, nicely maintained with a modern, clean shower and toilet block, albeit no heating! The showers are free with a box for donations. There is also a pot washing area and lots of info on the local area in the same building.

No recycling facilities as apparently the local council arn't interested, which is a shame as at home it's instilled into us, so seems wrong somehow not to do it! No separate facilities either for dog waste.

Potter Heigham is two minutes drive away and on the Sunday, we decided on the spur of the moment, to take a dayboat out from here. Very enjoyable! We also had fish and chips from Potter Heigham on the Friday evening when we arrived. All freshly cooked to order and was very good value. Went to Gt. Yarmouth on the Saturday. OK if you like that sort of thing! On Sunday evening we went to The Bridge Inn at Acle for our evening meal. What a find! If you have children then this is the pub to go to as they are well catered for. Although we don't have a young family, it wasn't full of unruly children, far from it. The pub was very busy but they still found a table for 5 adults straight away. Extremely good value with friendly staff and dog friendly too.

2 of us stayed here for a week with our dog. Lovely site - extremely friendly and helpful owners. We were in the overflow field, which to be honest we would request to stay on if we come again - it's as close to the facilities as much of the rest of the site but is much smaller and quieter. Facilities are great - clean & modern (especially the ladies'). Very few rules - it's all done on trust and this seems to be well respected. Very quiet location at the end of a dead-end lane which finishes by the river. It was lovely to wander 5 minutes down the lane to the watch the river activity at any time of day. A bit of drive to get supplies - we got most things from the petrol station back on the main road. Lots of walking opportunities from the site. If you're there when it's open, check out the windmachine museum which is next door to the site - fascinating.

Just returned after 4 days from this site and was very pleased. Firstly the owners, very polite and at hand for any information or help. I had tried several in the area but all I got was sorry fully booked. Here the owners went out of their way to accommodate us. We were told at first we may need to move pitches for our stay which I was ok with but by the time we had arrived they had sorted it out so we could keep the same pitch for our full stay. The site is very clean and quiet. We visited several places on the broads whilst we were there, also Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft which are in easy driving distance. The best place was literally a few hundred yards from the site. A small picnic area at the side of the broads just up from Potter heigham. We sat there every night with a couple of drinks watching the sunset in peaceful surroundings. We will only ever go back to a site for a return visit if we think its well worth it and we WILL be going back here.

Reviews are sometimes the only way you get the feel of a site and I recommend here.

See you again soon.
