We booked to go here for 3 nights in June. We have never been to Norfolk Broads before so we didn't know the area at all. The owners sounded so nice on the phone so we were so sorry that we were unable to find the place! I had printed out AA directions and we were doing well. We saw the brown campsite signs to Bureside and I expected the next ones we would see would be for Willowcroft, brown sign or otherwise. When we came to a No Through road there was no indication of a campsite down it so obviously we didn’t go down it. We later phoned Jim who said that it WAS down that No Through road and that the council constantly chopped down the signs that they put up when they cut the hedge! We drove round the block and through Thurne twice and after about half an hour we gave up. The roads were narrow and there was nowhere to turn round. We ended up going to Caister on Sea! We noticed when we drove up the main road a few days later that a sign was put up. So for future visitors –yes it is down the No Through road!

I have a rule never to visit the same caravan site twice. BUT. For Willowcroft I am happy to make it an exception. The site is well laid out and has a good atmosphere. The facilities were of a good standard, of sufficient number and always clean. The owners Kandy and Jim, a lovely couple are obviously caravaners themselves and run the site as a caravaner would want it. We selected the only fully serviced pitch but would have been happy on any of the other pitches. In fact, at the moment. The sole fully service pitch is right next to the facilities. (I think Jim is considering increasing the number of fully service pitches in future). However water point are in several places around the site and within a few yards. Finally, excellent location for visiting Norwhich, Great Yarmouth, Cromer etc. Potter Heigham is about a 20 minute walk away and Larhams store has a wide selection of food and goods. We really enjoyed this site.

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.
