Great small site, a bit difficult to find with sat nav. Locals in village very friendly and helpful. Nice pitch slight slope. Facilities good. Pub in walking distance, also very friendly, good food. Would go back.

Reviewer: Elmo the motorhome 26 reviews from this member

The site is 1/4 mile from where you check in. Readers will see that, from other reviews, access is an interesting challenge. Thankfully, Elmo was up to it. Beware of early morning bus drivers who are obviously paid to keep to the timetable.

The site is split into 2 fields. The top field is open to the elements and is the subject of the steep access mentioned in other reviews. The lower field is more sheltered. However, some of it was cordoned off due to previous heavy rain. Elmo certainly struggled to 'get a grip of himself' on the wet grass.

The loos and showers are basic. Cosy but not bijou. Thankfully there were only 2 vans on site. Heavens knows how long the 'queue for the loo' would be in the height of the season.

Washing dishes 'al fresco' with no shelter resulted in the washing up bowl filling up faster than I could empty it!

I have the T-shirt but the site is not on my list of 'must see again'.

We visited this site for a long weekend at the end of July & as it was the height of the summer & only a short break booked non-electric. When booking it was made clear that they predominantly expect electric hook up although they could 'fit us in'. When we arrived at the farmhouse to check in we had to park on the main road through the village which was ok if you were the only people waiting to check in but caused a lot of problems if more (especially if there was a caravan). Once checked in we were given directions to the site a short distance away. The site was nice a quiet but rather sloping however we found a nice spot and set up. The toilet and shower facilities were kept exceptionally clean and had hot water, toilet paper and soap at all times (these were in a portakabin along with the showers). The washing up area was the only real let down. One sink outside with no hot water, no cover and situated under trees. You couldn't really used this area as it was constantly covered in bird droppings and fallen leaves - this could be easily resolved with some overhead shelter and hot running water connected.

We were subjected to the worst weather this season - thunder storms and heavy rain! The following morning the owner came round and checked everyone was okay.

We will certainly visit the site again as good location for the north norfolk coast with a very good local pub serving good food and both child and dog friendly.

Sort out the washing up facilities and we would give a better rating!

One other comment - the electric hook-up at 6 per night seems rather a lot and more than we have ever paid in the 12 years + we have been camping.

Arrived 'on spec' as was touring the area. The lady owner gave us a choice of 3 pitches however only one was truly accessible as the other 2 were up a very steep incline. Be aware if you are towing a caravan that the approach road is very narrow and very busy (esp with the speeding bus drivers!), also you might want to choose a pitch in the lower field unless you have a 4x4 with a good clutch.

The site is pleasant with electric provided. As others have already said, the toilet facilities are inadequate although very clean and well stocked with soap and paper. They are also up a very steep incline so totally unsuitable for anyone not too good on their feet.

I don't think we will be revisiting as the charge per night was 17 plus 1 per dog. A bit expensive really for the standard of the site, and facilities available. I am sure there are other sites in the area that have better access and facilities at a comparable price.

Arrived on a Monday afternoon during Hurricane Bertha and was met by a very concerned owner who was keen to get us set up in the camping field. What a lovely lady.

We pitched up in the worst wind possible and then skipped off to the local pub for a fantastic meal and good local ale.

What we liked about this site was the friendly owner who checked on us everyday to ensure we were ok, the quiet nature of the site and the location. We were able to walk to Overstrand for breakfast at the Cliff Top Cafe, great food here, then on to Cromer all along the beautiful coast.

We would definitely visit again.

Negatives are the toilets and showers, only 2 of each and they are in a portakabin. Even so they are clean and always loaded with toilet paper and soap. Only a field for children to play in but never the less safe from traffic.

A lovely place to be for a summer holiday and our dog was very welcome too!

We stayed for 2 nights midweek. Good location with lovely walks and friendly people in the local pub.

One men's & one ladies toilet, two shower cubicles but with no sink so brushed teeth in the ladies, there was a mirror but it was awkwardly placed alongside the toilet. Be cautious with the hot water it is VERY hot.

There was no hot water for the washing up area and the area was not under cover.

The facilities were a bit limited considering the size of the site.

The welcome was not very friendly and we won't be returning.
