We have just returned from 5 lovely days at this site. Very friendly staff and extremely helpful. Site is well laid out and all amenities are very clean. Did not try the restaurant but everyone leaving it said how lovely the food was. Morrisons is a short distance away, and the dogs loved Holkham Beach. (10 miles away) Wells-next-the-Sea is worth a visit as well as the surrounding villages. The site is very quiet and there are a lot of wild birds to see - they even have a small hut you can sit in and watch birds feeding. Rabbits run freely too. Will definitely be returning as it appears a lot of people do. They have a storage area for your van if you want to leave it there.

Delightful well laid out site with excellent facilities and very friendly hosts. Large site but doesn't feel it. Immaculate washrooms similar standard to 4star hotel. Like other reviewers we liked it from the moment we arrived and will definitely go back. Has adult-only area and dog walk. Being picky knocked one star off for a little noise from nearby B road. Overall very highly recommended.

We loved this site the minute we arrived. The approach road is narrow but the strict rule of all departures by 11am and no arrivals until after 1. 30pm means that you know you won't meet another caravan. The owners are extremely welcoming and friendly. The site is immaculate with different areas for adults only, tent field, and caravan club CL area. There is a small fishing lake, games room (pool and ping pong) and an on site restaurant that was open weds, fri, sat and Sunday. The on site shop is well stocked with food items and camping/caravan equipment. You can also order croissants/ fresh bread.

A lovely site well within reach of the coast. 15 mins from the lovely town of Holt and 10 mins from a Morrisons at Fakenham.

We did our booking on-line after looking through the sites home page and agreed it looked clean and tidy, I have to ring as our booking was short notice and I needed to pay the remainder of our bill, to my surprise I was informed that our unit was not suitable for the grass pitch that I had booked but the friendly and polite lady at the end of the phone said no worries and made the necessary changes and put us on a hard standing pitch.

We arrived on a Friday afternoon for a long weekend stay, upon arrival we were greeted by a very friendly polite receptionist.

we were given all the information about the site and had a good chat about where we were being pitched.

After we pitched up we had a stroll around the site as you do, the toilet block was out of this world very clean, warm, in good order, the outside pot washing facilities again was very cleaning and tidy. We had no need for the chemical waste point but as the bins where there again this was well maintained.

The playground, games room where a bonus as we have children.

The main block where the shop, laundry room, bar/restaurant are located was well presented very clean and welcoming, although we did not eat in the restaurant the food looked and smelt wonderful.

This site was very quiet, just what you want for a relaxing break, but not to far from coastal areas, shopping etc.

We will be re-visiting this site

We travelled just about 220 miles ish to reach Norfolk (can't remember actual mileage). First time visit to The Old Brick Kilns, it has to be said that it didn't disappoint, in fact totally the opposite. Tasha and myself had an absolutely fantastic time. The site was well laid out, you were never tripping over others, the grounds were not just clean, they were immaculate (not even a cigarette butt in sight). All the toiletries and amenities were always clean and a pleasure to use. The shop on site albeit quite compact, it has everything you could possibly need in an emergency or just a light meal etc. Fresh bread is available and alcohol in the shop, albeit we didn't use either, it was nice to know. We did however use the shop pretty regularly for an ice cream, fresh milk, bacon, beans and eggs. The campsite seems in the middle of nowhere, when in actual fact you are less than 10 miles at tops from a big ole morrisons. The staff were helpful and then some, the owner even opened the shop up for us on the Saturday night just so we could buy 1 BBQ off them, ours were a little wet from the night before.

The first night, the rain fell in bucket loads, but the land stood up to it well and the ground stayed free of water and just kept draining, reckon we had 2 - 3 inches the first night. It never stopped the overall enjoyment either.

There is also a local cafe that was open at the weekends, possibly midweek too but we left on the tuesday. We stayed in the adults only section and it was lovely and quiet. The only drawback Tasha found was the lack of wifi available in the adults only section (but that was only so we could upload pictures from the holiday onto facebook). It was never a big issue as we didn't really go on holiday to sit and stare at our phones all weekend anyway haha. Our neighbours that were either side of our tent were both friendly and quiet. We asked if they minded if we put up a badminton net, nobody objected. All in all, right up to the very end, it was amazing and Tasha and I intend to return to the Old Brick Kilns in 2014 when we have our shifts sorted. Absolutely magic and thoroughly enjoyed every single second of it. Didn't want to leave either.

P. S. We didn't grade the children section as we don't have children, but I will say that the children that were on site were always occupied and there is plenty of space for playing too. The big chess board kept a few occupied for ages.

A lovely clean and well managed site, the owners work a lot of hours to keep the site in an excellent condition and always willing to help with any problems. We had a few issues with our caravan and they offered advice and even checked up on us to see if we were sorted. My partner, brother and son all enjoyed fishing on the small pond. My parents stayed in the B & B and both said they where made to feel very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed their stay, especially the cooked breakfast in the mornings (unfortunately breakfast only for B & B guests, much to the disgust of my son who wanted to swap places with his grandma so he could have a breakfast)

This is a fantastic site, it is a little out of the way but only a short drive to Croma and Sherringham. There is a VERY long and narrow lane leading into the site, which is why they have strict arriving and departure rules! But well worth the drive to, I would definitely recommend this site.
