What a location! It really makes this campsite. Being so close to the marshes and wooded area with rope swings, it's like stepping back in time. So lovely to see children playing rather than sitting in tents on consoles.

The toilet block is really not the best, but it is no means the worst I've ever been in. It was dirty - inevitable I suppose being next to the marshes - a little smelly and it was very dark most of the time. But it sufficed and there were never any queues that I saw, even in a full bank holiday week. The wardens said it is being renovated in the closed season so I look forward to any improvements.

The pitches, when busy, are very close together. I've never encountered that before so it was a bit of a shock. But towards the end of bank holiday week it thinned out a bit.

Apart from that it is a delightful site and we will definitely return. Close to fab beaches, walking distance to Wells, lovely local pub. Very quiet at night. Lovely!

We arrived at site fri 29th March for three nights. Reception was very good. The owner looked after us very well. The site is very good, friendly and clean with a position right adjacent the marshes. The toilets and showers, etc. are very good and the water was hot, just as well the water was hot, because there is no heating at all in the shower block and it was freezing cold and I mean freezing, must confess that the weather in general was colder than normal. Thought maybe a reduction on the 19 per night maybe offered but not the case, so on one hand the site can be wonderful, on the other hand it's a bit expensive. 19 per night for 12sq mtr of grass, cold shower block and no hookup ! Must stress again that the staff were brilliant.

Friendly site, seemed well organised. We were there over a very busy weekend with glorious weather, and the facilities seemed to cope OK. All pitches are sort-of marked, so you are shown where you can camp and how much space you can use up. No electric hook-up anywhere on the site, so it was mostly campers.

Nice location off the road, with views of the sea. In the area we camped, the ground is very stony and we had real difficulty in getting pegs in deep enough and secure enough; fortunately we had brought some thick plastic pegs and these did the job better than any of our metal ones. The whole site might not be like this, though; don't know. No shop, but 5-10 minutes walk there is a very nice village shop/cafe which is well stocked.

The campsite runs a freezer block system using their own blocks (1 deposit each, 20p a freeze). Always quiet at night. There did seem to be a lot of dogs on this site; maybe other local sites don't allow them? We felt rather conspicuous without one.

A good place to walk and cycle from, as you are right on the coastal path (good CoastHopper bus for getting one way) and there are good cycle lanes slightly inland (good map from Tourist Information centres locally for 2. 50).

We had a flat battery as we left the site, and the owners lent us jump leads and brought their car around to start ours; beyond the call of duty. We would certainly commend to others and return again some day. A little more expensive than some places, at least when we were there as it still counted as mid-season.

Rang the day before arriving but site was full, advised to try again the following morning, tried again next day and space was available. Owner / warden very friendly on arrival and showed us to our pitch with great view across the marshes.

On the second day a north wind picked up and we had to park our van across the front of the tent and tie tent to the van. Several people moved that evening. After a very windy night we were able to move to a sheltered pitch by the toilet block alas no view.

Given the price 25 a night for 2 Adults and 2 Children over 5, we felt the facilities could be better. The toilet block appeared to be cleaned by 2 blokes who turned up mid morning for a couple of hours, rather than the owner / warden. Only the bare minimum of cleaning was done which is shame.

In summary the location of the site is great, warden friendly and helpful, but toilet block needs a proper clean and then it would be worth the price.

We were able to book and get in easily.

Lovely couple running the site who were very helpful.

Brilliant toilet/shower block which was clean, well planned out with oodles of hot hot water. Which we needed in this wet July.

Only thing is bring cash or cheques as they do not take cards of any sort!

Fantastic location in a lovely village on the coast.

A net work of foot paths lead to both the mud flats and sandy littoral as well as inland to a lovely local pub and a well stocked village stores who serve a coffee too.

The location of this site would be really stunning in decent weather. We stayed through two horrible days of weather, so stormy would be more descriptive than stunning. However if you can't cope with the weather UK camping probably isn't your thing! The proximity to the marshes can't be faulted, and our kids (3 and 5) would have slept out there crabbing line in hand if we'd let them.

The toilet block and washing up room were well set up, and had lashings of hot water (particularly appreciated in the horrid weather).

We know this part of the coast well, so pottered around taking in many of the usual activities and a few new ones (Crabbing, dinner at Wiveton Fruit Farm, crabbing, walking across the marshes, crabbing, beaches and Dinosaur Adventure when the rain started to get to us).

We stayed during half term (the Jubilee week) and the site was packed. Pitches were rigidly marked out which is a little regimented for me. This is just a style preference. There were groups, but noise wasn't an issue from them, so all was well.
