Reviewer: Caribbeanwind 1 review from this member

 We booked at short notice in what is obviously the busiest time of year and was unable to get a Service Pitch. If an EHU is essential you will need to book in advance.

The biggest plus point of this campsite is it's location. Walking distance to the town centre, beach and pier. We hardly used the car all week which was great. The beaches are also lovely and clean with plenty of sand at East Runton and Cromer.

Please be aware that the Pub next to Morrisons was shut the whole week we were there and at the busiest time of year we concluded it had probably gone out of business. Also if you want sit down Fish & Chips they shut at about 8pm which we found rather strange (the Take Away counter remained open but only at one of the two chip shops). There is a Morrisons, Co-Op, Halfords and Argos on the walk into town but if you forget anything small such as a sieve or can opener there is a great discount shop in the centre which we used many times.

The site itself is ok, we stopped in the Marl Pit because I didn't fancy being woken early by barking dogs. I got woken at 6am by young children instead. The showers were rarely warm enough. The problem with the push button showers remained from early reviews (ie only lasting for a couple of seconds I complained about this twice but nothing was done about it. There is also a seemingly permanent queue to wash up your dirty pots which is annoying. They do provide Freezers to recharge your ice packs but we gave up on this as with it being so busy it became a chore finding them and they took an age to freeze.

On the plus side everyone kept the noise down after 2230hrs which was great. On a standard pitch you can erect your tent where you want within reason (but not all the pitches are flat) and it's proximity to Cromer and the Supermarkets makes it really. I think this site would be excellent when not so busy and shall return but probably during one of these time.

 Just had 2 great weeks at manor farm as always the site was great and the owners are doing all they can to improve the site the new shower block on Mols meadow is finished. The weather was great very hot. The site is ideal for dog lovers with lots of country walks or beach walks.

Cromer however was infested with ladybirds, but don't let that put you off as the locals say it happens about every 10yrs

The site is just the ideal spot for the Norfolk broads and the north Norfolk coast line . So good we have already booked for 2010

This site gets a 10 out of 10 from us on all the things people expect from a campsite. Friendly, clean, location, helpful staff

 Every other review on this site was good so we decided to give it a try. Although we had good weather throughout our stay, Manor Farm for us was not all we expected. The only access is by a single dirt track, and if you get a vehicle coming the other way it's not easy to manoeuvre round each other. The campsite itself seemed to be very overcrowded. We were on Marlpit Field and the tent units were not the recommended 6 metres apart. When we came to connect our electric hook up we were unable to do so as all four points were taken. We contacted the office and were told to sort it out ourselves. It was only when we said that it was up to them to sort out the problem with the hook up as we did not want to mess with someone elses electrics, that they said someone would come up to us. The warden arrived 15 minutes after our call, found that someone should have been on a different hook up point and made a connection point available for us.

For the sheer size of this site I do not feel there are enough facilities, such as toilets and showers. The block nearest to us contained four toilets (one with a sink in the cubicle) and one shower inside. A door on the outside of the building led into a family shower, which my twin daughters and I just fitted in. My partner said the situation was the same in the gents. There were queues every morning for the showers, and when we did manage to get in a shower it was usually a trickle of water, as the pressure was down due to so many people using this facility at the same time. The best time to shower is very early morning or late night.

We do not have a portable fridge so had to use the freezer to re-freeze ice blocks. However, someone kept removing them from the freezer and leaving them on the floor. This was not good, I mentioned it to the warden who said he would pass it on to the person in charge.

Our children enjoyed the peaceful play area on Gurneys Plantation as the Marlpit area was very crowded. Although the site went quiet around 11pm the noise from a fair in Runton carried up and seemed quite loud at times.

Cromer is a pleasant little town, and the beach is lovely. A value for money place to eat has to be The Kings Head-two meals for £10.00, and the food was good, there are also many fish & chip shops though most are shut by 9pm.

The Henry Blogg Museum is worth a visit, we had our eyes opened about the history of the Cromer Lifeboat.If we were to revisit the area in the future it would have to be on a different campsite. Although the sea views from Marlpit are fantastic, the access to Manor Farm is not good.

 We visited this site back in August 2008 and loved it so much went back the following year.

The site is very clean and well looked after. The shower/toilet blocks are cleaned every day. It can get a little windy depending where you pitch your tent.

In August the site can get quite busy but not noisy.

It is about a 20 minute walk into Cromer town centre and you pass a big Morrisons supermarket and Argos.

At night you can see the lighthouse in the distance.

We love the site and will be going back this year.

 We stayed in Molls Meadow for a weekend at the beginning of July, the weather was hot which made the stay more pleasurable.

The facilities in Molls Meadow were a brand new shower & toilet block that was kept clean we didnít have a problem with no hot water, although the field was not full during our stay. Maybe this toilet block had recently opened as it definitely was not small (see TheThrashers review) plus the Manor Farm website which show the new block.

As mentioned an ice cream van visits regularly. The campsite is a short walk from a largish Co-Op and further on a large Morrisonís and other shops in Cromer. Nearby the there is also a Halfords and a BP petrol station.

East Runton and the beach are also easily to walk to. Cromer is also within walking distance our 3 year old managed it no problem both there and back and a full day on the beach.

The site seems to be very child friendly with 2 good play areas and a football area for the children. There is a chap who cycles about regularly asking if everything is ok

There was also no problem of where to pitch and having a large tent there was no extra supplement as we had a standard pitch. We have already booked to go back.

 Just arrived back from a weekend at this site. Pitched on Molls Meadow (even though we don't own a dog) and thouroughly pleased with the site. Very friendly staff and we often saw a warden cycling around to make sure everyone was ok and rules being adhered to.

We had a good walk round the whole site and it is huge.

The shower block was lovely and always found the water in the showers hot and block very clean. The washing up water was sometimes just luke warm though - but hey it beats washing up in a river with grit!

The only other issue we had was that as the shower block on Molls Meadow is brand new and so nice, we did get other campers using it from the other fields instead of using their own (which I am told were very adequate) which made it very busy at times.

Short walk to Cromer (about 20 mins) and lovely views of the sea.

We will be definitely be going back.

 We spent 6 nights here in July. Itís a large site but I like the way that itís split into different fields so that different types of camper can be accommodated in each. We camped on Marl Pit where dogs are not allowed.

The facilities are clean and well kept. Weíre early risers so had no problems with queues at the showers or the water going cold. I suspect that, given the numbers that are accommodated here, that this could be an issue later in the day. We were especially pleased to have access to a deep freeze so we could keep our ice packs frozen.

Thereís plenty to do in the area and itís a good base for exploring Norfolk. Itís not far from the sea although we took a short drive along the coast to visit the magnificent beach at Holkam. There are two supermarkets within a short walk and the nearby village of East Runton boasts two pubs. The best pub for food, however, was the Village Inn which involved a slightly longer walk to West Runton.

Being a large site we never really made any contact with the owners. I think we missed the personal touch that weíve enjoyed on other sites. But it was clean and well run and we would certainly visit again

 Spent a fantastic week here in late July. The site is extremely well run, toilets and showers were always clean and play areas were superb for the kids (aged 6 and 9). My daughter especially loved the climbable trees surrounding the play area!

Although others mention it, we never experienced a lack of hot water for either showering or washing up - perhaps we are just early risers!

Some of the site is on a slight slope, and a wind break would have been handy in the evenings.

Shops nearby were extremely handy, but I think the site is missing a trick by not having a small shop on site - the girls always like to make a little independent trip to buy sweets and the ice-cream van isn't quite the same!

Anyway, we loved the site and loved the area and wouldn't hesitate to go back.

 There is quite a narrow stony road up to the campsite which was a bit of a close shave for our towbar! But that is the only problem we have to report!

The site was lovely, we were in Marlpit and camped nearer to the older toilets. Old yes, but very clean. There's also a family shower in that block which we used. Never had problems with cold water.

We found the site to be very windy and had to replace normal pegs with sturdier ones as they kept coming loose in the wind.

The park is good for older children and the ice cream van visited daily.

Good walk to East Runton beach and also into Cromer.

Lots of Ladybirds - but I don't think that is normal!

 Just had 3 nights at Manor Farm, we chose it as it's not too far from home and we wanted to trial our new tent but what a pleasant find this site is. We were greeted by friendly people at the reception who gave us all the info we needed, we went down to the fields and it felt like you were in the middle of the country. Managed to find a good sized, flat area to pitch on easily. The site is run in a relaxed way but everything seemed to be happily under control.

This site was mainly used by families with young children and there's a lovely wooden play park area which our 4 & 6 year olds loved - all of the kids using the park were nicely behaved and we heard no bad language which can't be guaranteed but shows the kind of people who use this site.

The toilet & showers were very clean, new shower curtains - no mildew or funny damp smells! Plenty of free hot water which was not so hot that you couldn't shower children. Washing-up facilities good but not much room so sometimes a queue in the evening, free & easy access to freezer for ice blocks run on a charitable donation basis.

We felt like we were in the depths of the countryside with lovely sea views on the horizon so we were pleasantly suprised to find a coop and morrisons within walking distance and the beach nearby. Cromer and the beach were pleasant and we walked eveywhere (even the 4 year old).

This site has none of the loud, brightly lit nightlife that some people are looking for but if you're after a relaxed family break where you can chill and the kids are safe this is ideal. I shall definitely return,even if hubby is working I'd feel happy to come on my own with the kids.
