 Can't really add more to what's already been said. This is everything a CS/CL should be and more! We had the place to ourselves for the first two nights, just the chickens and Whinny the horse for company! Nice open, level pitching area, water, EHU and TV point to the pitch. 2 fully equipped shower rooms, paid for by honesty box, also a washing up area and washing machine & tumble drier for those who need them. Very comprehensive information room with a good 'shop', all the basics plus some home made goodies and again all paid for by honesty box. A Roman road runs directly up behind the site, ideal for the dogs' first and last walk of the day.

Only (very slight) downside is the location next to a surprisingly busy B road, but not enough noise to worry about and will almost certainly be screened when the trees that have been recently planted mature.

Lots of places to visit in the area - 5 days really wasn't enough - still that makes for an excellent excuse to return, only when the weather's a bit warmer hopefully!

Could go on, but it'd all be very very good!

 What a gem of a site. The pitches are flat and very generous. We were able to park our 26' van side on and still had plenty of room for the car and picnic table. There are tables and parasols for each pitch and they can be moved to wherever you want them. Dan and Tracey are a lovely couple and very willing to help if needed. The goodies in the fridge and freezer were much appreciated, especially the ice cream as we were there in a heatwave. The bathrooms and laundry are kept clean and tidy and there are little personal touches which make them feel very homely rather than stark and commercial. The water supply is shared between two pitches, so take a double connector if you have one.

There is a quiet lane at the back of the site for walking the dog and we used one of the day kennels for our dog when we spent the day in Norwich.

We were lucky enough to see a male Hen Harrier over the fields at the back of the site and Oyster Catchers in the paddock behind the caravan.

The road is busy, but not bad enough to spoil a lovely week's holiday. The RAF are near neighbours, but only flew in the area on one day. Otherwise, except for the occasional fly past, all was quiet.

Fakenham has a very good market on Thursdays and there is a Farmers Market at Creake Abbey. Details of events are posted on a chalk board near the bathrooms.

I expect this site to become even more popular in the future. We will certainly be going back.

 This was our first camping trip, so we were a little apprehensive, absolutely no need. We arrived and were suitably impressed with the small friendly feel, after a short chat to the owners about rules for the site (BBQ's and Firepits etc) and the use of facilities, we were allocated pitch number 4, it was a huge area complete with electric hookup, drinking water and tv point.

The meadow was surprisingly flat with a few undulations but nothing to bother about. Grass was mown twice in the 5 days we stayed and clippings removed.

The information point had a leaflet on almost everything, places to visit, to restaurants and local takeaways. Homemade jams, marmalades and cards are available to purchase, a freezer stocked with homemade goodies (you must sample the apple pie) and bread which, is available for your use also, a fridge stocked with eggs, bacon and more goodies as well as a tumble drier if it rains!

The toilet block was a large wooden out building about two feet off the ground with two steps up to it. There were two 'bathrooms' each has a toilet, vanity unit sink, shower and heated towel rail. Bathmats, hand towels and handwash were provided, as well as a chair and hooks for clothing, only one small thing was overlooked, a shelf above the sink would be a handy addition for those who wear spectacles!

The utility room was the opposite side to the 'bathrooms' and had a microwave, toaster, kettle and washing machine. A sink for washing up, brush, mop and dustpan were also present, with a small amount of extras in the cupboards. A washing line complete with pegs came in very handy for drying and airing off blankets and towels.

There is a waste chemical and dirty water disposal point, recycling and general waste area, which is emptied numerous times daily.

The site owners are animal lovers and keep a variety of pets,

There are 2 kennels which are available for hire if you require. The chickens are free to roam as they please and on arrival you will be advised NOT to feed ANY of their animals, with genuine reasons for this request!

There are plenty of places to visit and on a blackboard, the owners write what's on nearby such as local markets etc.

For those interested in wildlife, there are numerous reserves dotted about the area such as Sculthorpe Hawk and Owl Trust, this is located less than 10 minutes away and is well worth a visit. There is a track around the back of the site that goes on for miles through farmland and is a good walk for those who take dogs.

Brewery's and distilleries for those of us partial to a tipple are also not too far away.

All in all this is a very quiet, very clean and very friendly site, and we will definitely be arranging a second visit.

The site is on a strangely busy B road, which at night can distract you from a decent night's sleep - unless, like my wife, you have ear plugs!

But we are in a tent, it would be more soundproofed in a van.

However, that is the only downside.

Everything else, and I mean everything, is perfect.

Friendly owners.

Superb shower blocks.

Fresh water on pitch.

Internet connection available.

Information hut.

Washing facilities available.

Easy access to towns and sights.

And all for a fantastic price.

If you like small and friendly, you'll adore this site.

 Just returned from 5 nights at this lovely site. Very attractive well kept site with new shower block. Water supply on pitch. Freeview tv aerial supplied. Lovely friendly owners who upkeep the site well.

Information hut with places to go and recommendations to eat, a fridge and freezer stocked with home made cakes, ice creams and freshly laid eggs.

Handy for visiting lots of places will have to go back again.

Amazing value at£12 night including electric.

Shower is extra with a honesty jar to put your money in, but it is a lovely big bathroom in a pine cabin with lots of little luxuries.

Only downside it is next to a road but that didn't bother us it was quiet at night only thing we heard was the owl.

Thank you for making us so welcome, see you next year.

 Nice flat well drained site, easy dog walk straight from back of site, toilet shower block which looked very clean, we did not use as have all our own facilities in van. No shop but a fridge and freezer in info hut with bread, milk, plus other goodies, money in a honesty jar. We had a meal in the Ostrich Pub in village which was very convenient only 10 min bike ride, there are plenty of quite lanes to bike on we went to Holkham Hall, and Walsingham as only there for 3 nights, will need to go back as many other places to see. Only grumble a lot of road noise and noise from yard just behind where we parked did detract slightly.

 Lovely site, clean and the owners were very welcoming.

We had Pitch 1 next to the chickens and Jakey the very old horse - it was a pleasure to sit and enjoy the chickens!

Home made apple pie is to die for, and there's a whole selection of cakes and pies in the freezer for you to enjoy.

We walked the dog walking circuit (we had not dog) and its a very enjoyable stroll out.

Showers and toilets were being fitted the week after we left, and will be a great addition.

For £10 a night including electric, you really cannot go wrong. Its a great location for teh North Norfolk Coast.

We at twice at the Hungry horse pub near Morrisons, its amazing value for money with 2 for 1 on every night and every main meal. Huge portions too.

We will be back!

 We stayed two nights on this lovely CL, it has fresh water, grey waste dump, chemical toilet dump, rubbish bins, information hut, fridge/freezer and microwave for campers use but no electricity or toilets/showers.

Friendly owners and a gorgeous setting, they have chickens and a horse to befriend as well as barn owls, red legged partridge and bats nesting in the grounds. Dog friendly (although we don't have one)

Flat, well draining site with short grass so nothing to tread into the van. Pitch size is good. There is a little noise from the road but not noticeable when it comes time for bed. There is also a little noise from RAF planes practising drops at the nearby airfield but the interest in watching the various manoeuvres definitely outweighs the slight noise.

Several options for bike rides, we took the lane behind the site to cycle to Holkhom Hall and beyond to the beach reserve - an excellent day out.

We would definitely return.
