Just got back from a great week at this site, one of the best sites I have visited.

Shower block was clean and tidy, excellent play park for the children location is ideal for days out to cromer, great yarmouth also seal watching at Horsey bay about 35mins away.

I liked the look of the bell tents set up on site.

The pitch area was ok, most pitches had a little like privet hedge separating pitches, next time as we had a group of us we will try and get pitch without hedge

Overall I loved this site and look forward to coming back to it

We (me and my husband and our two boys aged 1 and 5) are just back from autumn half term at Deersglade. It was our first visit and the first time we'd used our folding caravan. Ive just booked up again for Easter holiday and summer holiday we loved it SO much. The site is immaculate, the facilities are absolutely phenomenal - the toilet/shower blocks are like something out of a 5 star hotel! The staff are all amazingly friendly & so helpful. My children who are two very lively boys had the time of their lives running free playing safely on the fab playground and woodlands. We stayed on for longer than originally booked as we had such a great time. We Hired out the fire pit to toast marshmallows which was lovely. We had some super days out in nearby Cromer, Sheringham and Holt. We cannot recommend this place highly enough! Thankyou to all at Deersglade for making our family holiday so fantastic and creating some forever memories. See you at Easter!

Just returned from a wonderful break from 23rd August until 3rd September. This was our second stay at Deers Glade.

We had pitch 46. The campsite was very busy as expected however the pitch sizes and general layout for most of the pitches allows for ample room for everyone. The other users of the Campsite are respectful of each other so even though it was busy, noise etc was fine.

The amenities were just as we found in October 2015. Spotlessly clean, well presented blocks with the best camp site showers I have ever discovered.

The Hog Roast was a hit as was the Pizza night! The staff are always friendly and on hand for needs.

It is ideally located for the North Norfolk Coast as well as the broads. You can reach Wells next the Sea in around 30 minutes on the Coast and Horning and Hinkley are 30 minutes in the other direction on the broads.

We visited Penthorpe Park, a wonderful bird Sanctuary which also combines Hootz House, a great indoor play park and outdoor play park. Had a lovely day there.

My only disappointment with Deers Glade was that we had to pay 2 a night for a dog, not sure where there is a cost implication to the site? We had to put our dog in a local kennels on day 2 for the stay (it was trial and error) and was then not able to get the 2 per night back.

My best way to describe Deers Glade is that if I owned a Campsite or was going to own one, I would model it on here.

Beautiful site. Staff helpful on arrival & gave plenty of advice on pitching, amenities & local places. Pitches are spacious & hedges add to that little bit of privacy whilst enjoying being in a camping community. Hog roast & pizza nights were a big hit & excellent value. Toilets were clean & tidy most of the time, peak times you did have to wait for showers but this is to be expected in main two week holiday! Would definitely go back & one of the best sites we have been to.

We (2 adults, 11 and 9yr old) stayed for May BH weekend and the site was full. The staff were friendly and at book in we were told the pitch we had been allocated was rather small and were offered different ones. (Had we had to go on the one allocated our caravan, porch awning and car would not have fitted). The pitch we had had hedges round 3 sides and ample room for us.

The shower blocks looked v good and had lovely underfloor heating in the shower cubicles. The temp control on the shower could be quite stiff and there were issues with the toilet flushes and also running out of loo roll. The site is very pleasant with a good busy play area, we had the hog roast which was shops sells camping basics. There was not as much tourist info as I had expected.

We saw lots of bluebells at Blickling Hall (free to walk round the park) and tried crabbing at Cromer (but really you need a net rather than just a line and bait bag as the crabs drop off as you pull them up to the pier). Personally we prefer Sheringham and would go there, rather than Cromer, next time.

We have just returned from a lovely 4 day stay at Deers Glade. What a lovely site, the staff are friendly, the pitches are large, the showers and toilets are very clean and warm. Our children loved the play area and there were lots of new friends to be made. The site is set on lovely grounds. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be coming back for sure.

My wife and myself visited Deer Glade Caravan & Camping site and stayed for a week. The weather was really against us from day one, with rain, snow, monsoon rain, frost and icy wind. However we enjoyed our early holiday at Deer Glade. We were welcomed to the park on arrival and shown where we were to park our caravan. On booking the site we asked for a grass pitch but due to the weather, we asked if we could change to a hard standing pitch. There was no problem in changing the pitch. The two toilets, showers and wash basins were kept immaculately clean throughout or stay. I wondered however, if there were enough toilets and showers in the block when the site was full. The fresh water points were great so to was the waste water drain and the cassette toilet emptying point was of a good standard. If you like fishing a nice lake is available and there is a children's play area all fenced off. In reception there is a small shop, although the stock was very limited, probably due to the early time of the year, but shops were near by in Roughton. All in all a nice site and would visit again if ever returning to Norfolk.

I will start this review with a simple word, WOW!.

We stayed at the site over the October Half term, incorporating Halloween as well.

You drive through a small wood on the entrance drive and enter into a large woodland clearing. The site was immaculatly presented which given the time of year and amount of woodland nearby is quite an effort I would imagine.

Booked in at reception with some very helpful and friendly staff members who gave us directions to our pitch. The site is very well laid out. A central clearing with the play area, animals and covered seating area. There are little areas off the main circular road. A lot of hardstanding pitches which looked good and then some grass pitches. We had a tent, the only on site, so were on a grass pitch. Our tent is 7metres by 4 metres and we had plenty of room on our pitch (79) for that and two cars. It was surrounded by some 3ft high hedging which gave privacy and shelter from the elements. A member of staff popped over to make sure we were ok pitching etc.

The amenities were second to none. Exceptionally clean and well appointed toilets and showers. The showers ran as long and as hot as you liked, none of those annoying push buttons and they had huge shower heads too. Given the weather, puddles on the site etc, the toilets were kept spotless even with all the dirty outdoor shoes being traipsed through. The family shower room was a little tight for space.

A short walk from the site took you to the Gunston Hall estate and its deer park. The kids loved that.

The site itself is situated perfectly for all the attractions the area has to offer. Cromer and the North Norfolk Coast especially.

We attended the Gunton Arms, Thorpe Market. An amazing restaurant but make sure you pre book. I booked well in advance but someone was trying to get a table on the night, a Tuesday, and couldn't get a table. Its only 4 miles away by road. Got a taxi back and a very apologetic taxi driver charged 11 for the journey. Obviously never got a cab in Essex as 11 was a steal.

Halloween was incredible on the site and the kids loved it. It started during the day with a pumpkin competition run by the site along with some other fund raising competitions and then in the evening the site came alive with other campers going to so much effort for Trick or treating etc.

This then followed a Charity bonfire and Firework display laid on by the site owners. It was really really good.

We had a thoroughly lovely stay and may well be spending longer in the summer of 2016.

This was our second visit to Deers Glade this year and I'm sure there will be many more in the future, there are so many good points that we love about this site that it's hard to list them all but I'll try my best.

To start with the whole site is kept very neat and clean, the toilet, shower and pot washing facilities are cleaned thoroughly throughout the day and even though our second visit was during the summer holidays the standard didn't slip. I particularly found the disabled / parent and child room helpful so I could take my baby with me when using the facilities and not have to leave him outside the cubicle. The shop stocked all the basic necessities at a reasonable price. And the children's play area was great.

The owners were always very friendly and helpful and gave us a choice to where we should pitch our tent. One of the main reasons we originally chose this site was because they allow raised fire pits which you can hire from them if you don't have your own and they sell big bags of wood for 5.

The whole site of very sheltered and surrounded by trees and the skies are beautiful on a clear night.

One very small improvement it would be nice to maybe see is for a reduced rate for campers to use their fishing lake as I think it would encourage more people to use it. Also a some laundry facilities would be good as we were a bit unlucky with the weather and could have done with somewhere to dry out clothes.

The location of the site is great if you are visiting Cromer being just 5-10 mins drive away and Sheringham about 15 mins. If you are visiting during the summer the look out for the Saw mills open days which is just down the road from the site, it's very interesting to see the wonderful restoration that has been carried out on it and the volunteers do a wonderful job and just a few pounds to visit.

Overall we can hardly fault this campsite having visited it in low and high season and if the prices stay as reasonable it will continue to be brilliant value for money. My only worry is that if too many people hear about how good it is then we'll struggling to get booked in next time we want to stay there!

Arrival was pleasant, a well manicured site and a friendly welcome. Check in was very efficient and we were shown to our pitch within 10 minutes of parking outside of the camp reception.

Our pitch number was 88 I think. Great pitch as it has a line of small trees on one side and apart from the entrance, the rest was surrounded by a substantial hedge. Very sheltered and private. Our pitch was as far as you can get from the hook up so we were offered the free loan of a long hook up cable, which the guy went and collected for us while we unloaded the car.

It was just the two of us and our small dog, so we had a two man adventure style dome tent, a gazebo, windbreak and I'd taken the garden guinea pig pen to use as a barrier to keep our dog in so our pooch didn't have to be tied up all of the time. All the above plus the car only half filled our pitch and even when our nice came over with her pop up tent for a couple of nights, there was still plenty of room with a second car and and extra tent.

Essentials are available in the shop, but realistically everything else is a drive away. There are shops/pubs/garage not too far away, but if you just wanted to hang up your car keys for a while you'd end up doing more than your fair share of walking.

The shower blocks are modern and very clean, great showers although our block only had 2 showers each in the mens and the girls sides. I think that there was only one other block that appeared to be the same size. The site was quiet when we were there but I would imagine that the handful of showers are in high demand when the site is full. Reading other reviews it seems that there are other issues when he site is full due to the demand on the facilities.

Our one gripe from our visit was that on day one they started mowing the whole site very early in the day. This seemed strange as the grass was not long at all. They were still mowing when we got back from our day out and due to the showery weather the grass cutting stuck to your shoes and then ended up everywhere, the car and tent. Everywhere. Our nice was arriving the next day and as the sun was glorious we thought we would just have a relaxing day at the site. Not to be. Again early on the tranquility was shattered by the noisy hedge trimmers. The petrol trimmers were at it all morning as there are a lot of hedges. By lunch they had stopped but then they spent all afternoon back on the mowers shredding up all the hedge cuttings. ! The people that ran the site didn't seem to be around and I guess the lads were 'under orders' to get the job done, so although we spoke to the guys on a couple of occasions they seemed unwilling to compromise or show some common sense. As per another comment, a warden on site at all times might be a help.

On the whole though it was a site that I would recommend. We don't tend to go to the same site twice, but if I did return I would avoid the busiest times because of the lack of toilets/showers.

So, very nice site, well kept, spacious, friendly, efficient and as the site was more than half empty it was a pleasant stay except for the mowing scenario. My ratings are based on this but I would read other reviews to get an idea of ratings when it is busy.
