Keeping it brief.

-owners are friendly and professional, willing to help where they can.

-Site is clean and well kept.

-disabled facilities good and all areas kept clean.

2 minute walk to beach, but steep access which makes wheelchair users finding it impossible to use.

-local shop, chippie, pub and arcades. Close to Caistor on sea and great yarmouth.

-good value for money

-would recommend to anyone.

This is a great quiet site that is close to the beach, great walk with the dogs down through the tent pitches, through the heather and down on to the beach, a walk along to the steps and up a small hilly path to the pub. The calafornia tavern serves great beer and serves fantastic food, dogs are very welcome.

Wroxham is half an hour away and the Broads are within 10 minutes (Arcle), Horning is worth a visit with 3 pubs on the river edge all dog friendly.

The campsite has two toilet blocks both with showers and always clean, all caravan pitches has electric hook ups and the grass is kept in top condition. In the evenings you can watch the rabbits running around, the only down side is the TV reception but we only watched it to see what the weather was going to be like!the owner is very friendly and always about if you need him.

We've been there 3 years in a row now and we will be going again next year

This is not a great site for kids but if you travel 10 minutes one way you have Hemsby and 10 the other way Great Yarmouth you have lots to do, there's a swimming pool just up the road in a chalet sites such well.

Well looked after site with basic and rather dated but clean facilities including laundry room and dish washing area with hot water. Tents are pitched on a large field, with grass cut regularly, with electric hook-ups if required and overlooking a good beach and the sea. Easy access to the beach through a gate with an incline down to a few steps at the bottom.

The clubhouse was generally rather quiet through the week but there is a great pub - not the cheapest but very good meals- just outside the site. Alternatively there are clubhouses on the surrounding sites, some having entertainment every night, some free and others a small charge entry.

Only had breakfast in the clubhouse but this was pretty good and reasonably priced, the young waitress being very friendly and helpful.

This site is just a short drive from Great Yarmouth where there is plenty to see and do - the stock car racing being well worth a visit - but this site is perfect when the weather is fine for taking the kids on the beach.

Would definitely visit again!

I visited this site on Friday and Saturday 17th & 18th July 2015 and was charged 45. 00 for a 2 berth frame tent for the two nights. The site was very clean and tidy. There were only seven or eight pitches occupied, a fraction of the availability. Electric hook ups are provided in a line at the top end of the site. I did not see a designated children's play area.

I have used this site during the last twenty years on many occasions.

The site is located at the end of a side road off the main Hemsby to Caister road and is approached through a Static caravan park. On arrival, book into a small but well marked reception building in the centre of the park. Behind this structure lies the club house bar. Touring Caravans park up by taking the road straight ahead, beyond reception and behind the Club house. Tents are pitched by taking the left fork through the static caravans.

Pitches are marked out on the grass which is usually well cut and fairly fine. Most of the site is level, with some undulation, but running on a gentle slope. Most pitches would, however, be considered level. Generally, I have always found this site to be very tidy and clean.

The tent area has its own '1950's' style male and female toilets at the top end of the site near the caravans. The Elsan disposal chamber lies at the back of the the block, and there is a drinking water tap outside on the front wall. There are no hand washing basins at this facility but a more comprehensive toilet block lies a few yards from the reception area which I have usually found to be adequate and clean.

This site is on an exposed clifftop and has beautiful views all around; the beach is visible from some areas and the wind farm dominates the sea view. The periphery of the site is guarded by a four foot chain link fence at the cliff top side. Low shrubs grow along the outer boundary along the cliff top and offer some shelter from the wind.

The beach can be reached through a footpath at the lower end of the site. Although views are open, because there are no surrounding trees or substantial fencing, this site can be very windy. I have seen tents blown away in extreme conditions. Also, driving rain can come off the sea, and there are often heavy mists at the extremes of the season.

If pitching near the clifftop shrubs, expect occasional swarms of insects at certain times, especially in the evening. I have also noted that there are often rabbit droppings on the grass in these areas.

The pitching area has a waste bin and fire station set up in its centre, and a tall lamp post which gives adequate but non intrusive security night at night. There is a regular security and bin checking patrol.

The Club house/bar often has live entertainment, but there is also a public house at the site entrance which also has live entertainment at times. In this vicinity there is also a general store, a chip shop and small amusement arcade all within easy walking distance. Access to the beach is by following the road a few yards beyond the chip shop. There are nearby holiday chalets and caravan parks which offer their own facilities and entertainments including a swimming pool at separate charges for non members. These and several other shops are all within walking distance.

Hemsby is an easy walk along the beach, and is like a mini Blackpool. There is also a bus route to Hemsby which runs back towards Great Yarmouth.

I have always found staff to be helpful and pleasant. On this occasion I found the pricing to be high, normally I would expect to pay between 12 and 18, per night. Previously this has been a bargain priced site, lower than average.

However, in summary, this site can be comfortable and stunning on sunny calm days.

Weather forecast was good and this site has been recommended to us before so thought we would give it a go.

Arrived on Friday afternoon, given an EHU pitch 17. 00 a night, our pitch did have a few dips in it but nothing we couldn't cope with. We have a six man tent and our tent was slightly too long for the pitch, we encroached onto the marked out grass which is used as a 'road' also with our guy lines out we could just get our car beside us on our pitch but when neighbours arrived it made it difficult for them to pitch as our car was extremely close. Not a problem as we moved our car over the 'road' but if the site was full it may cause a problem.

A lovely basic site, facilities are basic but clean, I would have liked a sink in the toilets on the campsite rather than having to walk to the main toilets but it was copable for a weekend.

This site is right on the cliff top, short walk to the lovely long beach, pub, shop and eateries all very nearby. We don't normally use a clubhouse but we did on Saturday evening and had a lovely evening, you can't hear the noise on the campsite.

There was a lovely relaxed vibe on this site and we would definitely return even though its only 40 mins from home. Definitely a good location for those who want to be able to visit Great Yarmouth but don't want to be right in the hubbub.

Stayed here for 5 nights in our van for the first time. The caravan pitches were all kept clean and were mowed. Field was flat and drained very well, as it was pouring when we arrived. We found it to be a lovely quiet site. Plenty of wild life, birds, rabbits and bats. The toilet blocks were always clean and always open.

Plenty of toilet paper, my only gripe was no soap, which I feel let them down. The showers were clean hot and free, with plenty of space in the cubicle, so you would be able to shower children with no problems. Each shower had plenty of hooks and a seat, so clothes were kept dry and out of the way. They had a laundry room which was also very good and had everything you would need.

The owners were very helpful and friendly and gave us good advice when our gas failed to work. It is minutes away from a lovely sandy beach, just a stroll down, but you would maybe struggle with a pushchair or wheel chair as it is a sandy lane or steps. We heard no traffic noise and no noise after ten pm.

Although there is a club house we did not go in but it did look very nice, and we also heard no noise from it even though they had entertainment on. There are plenty of shops within walking distance that sell almost everything and the premier shop was open till midnight every night. There are also plenty of places to eat and all were very reasonable prices. We had a pint in the pub directly opposite the camp site and it was nice with a lovely beer garden. We ate fish and chips from the chippy also across the road and they were delicious. I can also recommend Abigales cafe around the corner for great meals which we loved and also catered very well for vegetarians, so my daughter was happy too.

The site is in a very good position for seeing all the sights and attractions of Norfolk without having to travel any distance. We will go back when we visit norfolk again.
