Reviewer: Turtonsontour 2 reviews from this member

 We had left the booking of the half term holiday until the last minute, so our usual site in Norfolk was full. That said it did us a huge favour because we managed to get in at Manor Farm, although at the time we had no idea how good it would be.

In essence: friendly owners, peaceful site (despite it being very busy over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend and excellent facilities.

Free showers, loads of hot water and clean toilets; never busy on the caravan-only field although apparently queues for the showers on the camping fields.

Good walks and bike rides right from the site; Cromer is easily walkable and it's only a 4-mile walk to Sheringham on paths and bridleways.

24/night for a serviced pitch was good value and no ridiculous extras for things like awnings and children!

Great site; definitely would recommend to all age groups.

 Highly recommended. The booking process was easy. Having between us 4 children aged 6-11 one of whom is autistic we approached our first camping holiday with trepidation! We had an electric hook up pitch and although it was errr. Chilly at nights a small fan heater kept us toasty warm. The site was busy being a bank holiday weekend but the shower blocks were cleaned twice a day by contractors and as the site was damp the on site staff swept out the grass on a regular basis. Our kettle 'blew' the electrics at 10. 30 on a Sunday night. One phone call and 10 mins later a man arrived to rectify this. Fab service! Yes some of the pitches have a slight slope including the serviced ones. Either pitch your tent to suit or move your sleeping bags/airbeds to suit. We have booked again for August and the staff have 'gone out of their way' to suit our Autistic sons needs regarding the pitch we would like. This is camping how I remember it. Fantastic atmosphere and friendly people. 30 years on from my last camping trip I have the 'bug' again. TY Manor Farm x

 Just returned from four days at this site and stayed in Molls Field. The reception staff were friendly however I didn't realize that they do not accept cards on arrival so take cash or cheques with you.

It had rained quite heavily the day before arrival however the site drained quickly and on pitching the ground was dry.

None of the pitches are particularly level but the site and the facilities were good. Electric hookup runs around the outside of the field however if not using this you can pitch anywhere. It appears that some of the better pitches are tucked away and tend to be non numbered non electric pitches with great views of the sea.

There was both a new toilet block and an old one in this field so plenty of capacity to cover the busy bank holiday when we visited. The new toilet blocks are clean and functional however didn't have hairdryers inside but there are sockets for you to use, so remember to pack yours. Dependant on the time you make it to the showers does depend on how hot they are, there were a lot of people on site over the period we visited so if arriving on a less popular time you should be ok.

There is a freezer in the old toilet block for your freezer blocks but this is a case of just leaving yours in there and trusting no one will wander off with them. We had no problems though.

Just across from Molls Field is a large area with set up goals for the kids to play in. This area proved popular with my children as they spent a lot of time here entertaining themselves with football, rounders and tag. The added bonus of being able to see them from where we had pitched on the hill meant that they could have a bit of safe independance. There is a small farm road to cross to access this field but it is not busy and all the children seemed to manage this fine.

I would recommend this site and would visit again, albeit the pitches were not flat which sometimes meant we slipped down in our sleeping bags the views, location and facilities make it a good place to base yourselves.

 Visited from 29/04 to 02/05, staying in Molls Meadow. Can't fault the place, easy to find, excellent pitches, plenty of space and great views.

The amenity block is superb, lots of showers, toilets and sinks. Light and spacious. Showers could do with a bit longer on the push timer, but the warmth and strength are great. Very clean at all times. Short easy walk into Cromer, shorter and just as easy walk to the nearby CO-OP and Morrisons. East Runton and its beach, only 25 minute walk. Easy walk to Cromer straight down the track and Sandy Lane. Try the Bella Vista restaurant on the front overlooking the pier, great food and great views. Staff very welcoming, and efficient. Did not book but would recommend it on busy periods, great prices and facilities.

 As much I am against returning to the same site over and again, we can't seem to get through a year without a visit to this perfect family site. We often go with friends and have so many happy memories. Everything that you would need is here, and nice and clean too. The continuous investment in facilities means that everything feels fresh and homely. We stay in the 'dog field' and though it is vast, there is never a sense of being packed in, there is a huge space in the middle which is always clear. Cromer is a short walk away, as is East Runton and access to the all year dog-friendly beach. The cycling in the woods is fantastic - you can get to Sheringham off-road, but the road biking is also great. The children love the freedom that such a huge but tranquil site provides. Trees to climb, mounds to cycle over, space to fly kites, kick balls, throw frisbies, and an adventure playground. They can actually be kids!

Reviewer: Davidandjunemuir 25 reviews from this member

 This is a very big site, with several different fields each catering for slightly different needs. Some accommodate dogs, others don't, for example. We found a pitch on a large dog-free field, not using electric hook-up -- in which case the pitches are not numbered or laid out, so you just find a spot that suits you. So a bit of a free-for-all. But the site is so big that it doesn't appear to be much of a problem, although most of the ground is quite slopey, so don't expect level pitches. We were there mid-week just as the schools were going back, so there were not many people around.

The facilities are fine, although if the site is pretty full I think you could be waiting around for loos and showers -- they seemed a bit sparse for the size of the place. It is an easy walk down into Cromer, and easy shopping in either Morrisons or Coop supermarkets en route.

A good base for cycling, and we did quite a bit, using a very useful coastal cycling map from the Tourist Information in Cromer (only 2. 50). You are also right on the coastal path (which ends at Cromer), so the site is good for heading north; you can get the CoastHopper bus and walk back. No shop on site. Help-yourself freezers where you can freeze up your own ice blocks for free.

 Spent a week here during school summer holidays.

Good points-great facilities on each field and a family shower room. We took a big tub and were able to 'bath' our toddler who is afraid of the shower. Really close to Runton and a fifteen minute walk to Cromer. Two children 9 and 6 managed the walk without too much moaning and pushchair could fit up narrow track we used to get there. Didn't manage to visit Runton but will next time. Cromer is a great place perfect for a traditional British seaside holiday without any of the amusements etc.

Bad points-we were placed next to the toilet block which was near a smelly ditch. Campers would insist on recycling their bottles very early in the morning and also late at night. This was very annoying as we were camping with a toddler who was disturbed by the smashing glass. More consideration please campers. Also the lorry came to collect the bins on the only morning we managed a lie in at about 7.45!

Freezer facilities were provided for ice blocks which was great but we didn't manage to get our original ice block back until the last day as it was nowhere to be found!

I liked the fact that most caravans were on their own field as, no offence intended, but I feel campers create a different more relaxed atmosphere. Lots of people out late with fires etc. BBQ/Fire pits allowed if off the ground. Bricks provided by the campsite. It is a very large site, 4 fields I think, but still a great atmosphere on site. We would go again due to the location and facilities but would try and request we were away from the bins!

 Been back here on several occasions now and always enjoy its location/nice people & walking easily into Cromer

Ice cream van calls in on a regular basis,

Toilet blocks modern and cleaned often

Some nice different aspects in height are available for sea views

Supermarket just along the track,

Garage nearby

Couple of beaches easily walkable, did you know they shot the last ever Tiger in England after it escaped from (now defunct) Cromer zoo

 We booked up for 3 nights (late booking) and managed to get a pitch with EHU on Moll's Meadow which was one of 3 large fields (and the only one to take dogs).

At reception, the young lady was very pleasant and efficient, you get a small map which details the areas with in the site and were to go.

It is a large site and most pitches seems to be on a slight incline which isn't to much of an issue (unless you have a 3 year old which keeps rolling off her air bed :))

The facilities were modern and clean, the showers were hot with a small area in each cubical to dress/undress (in the dry). There was also a family / disabled shower room which is great if you have young children!

None of the facilities seem busy - but we were on the quieter field - as there seemed to be a lot more tents on the other 2 fields!

There's a small play area for the kids with wooden climbing frames, etc. Which got quite noisy at times - but this was the school holidays!

Both the Co-op and Morrisons are a 15 min walk through a rear entrance to the site (which is handy, as there is no shop on site).

We would return to this site without any hesitation - wished all sites were as clean as this one!

Reviewer: Vouvant 2 reviews from this member

 We had a family 'get together' at manor farm In August. The site was excellent, plenty of room for us to set up @ tents and 1 caravan in Moll's meadow, with a wonderful view of the sea. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The facilities on site where very clean, and warm. Although there is no shop, the local co op is only a short walk away. This is a great base to explore the North Norfolk coast, and we will be returning again this year.
