 Manor Farm is a large, family friendly campsite, with plenty of electric hook-up points. The toilet and shower facilities are all very new, and are well maintained, being immaculately clean at all times even on a busy Bank Holiday weekend.

The majority of the site is flat, and there are hedgerows and trees planted all around for shelter, which is useful as Manor Farm is located on a hill.

We camped in the Marl Pit field, which like most of the site boasts large grassy areas where children can play. Also on site are two play areas with climbing frames.

Manor Farm is situated just a mile or so outside of Cromer, and very close to two supermarkets. Cromer itself, Sheringham and the nearby coast are ideal for a weekend or a longer break.

I would highly recommend Manor Farm for families, and will certainly be returning in the future with my own.

 We were probably the only unit on the site without electricity & it was freezing!
Shower block & toilets are all as expected & clean ( don't visit around 11.30 as this seems to be cleaning time) building a new toilet block on tourer site.
Not many on the site but it was early in the season.
Large play area for kids. Not much shelter from wind but they are planting more trees. Owner nice enough although we only saw them on arival.

Easy walk to West Runton although it takes about the same time to walk into Cromer (25 mins at least) & take a torch. Pitch black on road to West Runton! 3 pubs in West Runton. We only tried 2! both ok & serve food. Kids & dogs welcomed. Bar persons very friendly in both.
About a six mile walk to Sherringham through Beeston Regis site & over the hill £8 for a return taxi, next to train station & you MUST EAT in the 'lobster' pub in Sherringham it's great. We had an ok time in all but wished we'd had some heating, will stay there again if visiting that area. Great for building Easter snow bunnies at this time of year. We had 4' of snow in March. Would definitely recommend this quiet farm site. Is just as it says!. Enjoy

 Every year we go camping with another family and as we live at opposite ends of the country we meet at the site. We had a great few days here, had no trouble pitching together and some helpful campers gave us a hand putting our mates tent up in the dark! Kids love it wherever we go but we felt that they were safe here and let them ride bikes around and go to the playground without worrying too much. Walked into Cromer and we spent a day on the pier having a few beers and letting the kids catch crabs from the side- it kept them entertained all day. It was great not needing to drive and having plenty for them to do. We did drive to Wroxham one day and hire a dayboat on the Broads which is one of the most relaxing days out I have ever had! The site is reasonable,facilities were clean and well kept and although it is big it doesn't feel that way as it is divided up into fields, each with it's own facilities. We do not use hook up, but I think it is provided if you want it. Would go back, nice, well maintained site.

 This year marked 10 years of camping at Manor Farm, and it's still the campsite we know and love! We stayed on the lower Marl Pit field as ever, which had lovely views of the sea, as well as being the best place to see the red arrows and fireworks! We went during carnival week and found that it wasn't really very busy, although this could have been due to the slightly murky weather. The campsite is a 15-20 minute walk from Cromer sea front and a ten minute walk from the train station, Morrisons and the nearest pub, which unfortunately appeared to have gone a bit downhill.

The shower blocks were always clean and tidy, we found the best time for showers was around dinner time, although it didn't get too busy. The play area was just as good as ever! I'm 16 and I still love it! There are lots of climbing trees around and a new playing field for ball games and kite flying.

There are no marked pitches if you are sans-electric hook up, which I personally think is a good thing! There are 3 tent fields, Upper Marl Pit, Lower Marl Pit and Moll's Meadow, tehe dog field. Gurney's Plantation, which has th best showers, is exclusively for caravans. I you've never camped before, or if you're a veteran, come to Manor Farm!

 Slight sloping pitch, but the sea views were excellent. Loads for kids to do. Very friendly and helpful owners. Nice clean toilets and showers. Only let down no shop, but 2 supermarkets within working distance. Lovely walks around site.

Definitely go again.

 First time at this site, but not the last. Everything was fantastic. Clean toilets and showers, helpful staff and some wonderful people also on holiday. Cromer and East Runton only a short walk away even our 4 year old daughter managed to walk to the beach without too much fuss.
We will be returning next year and hope to see as many nice people as we did this year. A very clean, friendly and peaceful site. 

Date of Visit: August 2007 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Splodge 3 reviews from this member

 We have just got back from 9 nights stay here, and have booked in for next year!  That should say it all. 
The way into Manor Farm is a little daunting for the first time.  The lanes leading immediately to it are quite narrow, but we didn't realise at the time that most the site users use a different exit and entrance around the back. This means you are most unlikely to meet oncoming traffic anyway.  We reached the reception when it was closed in the evening, but there is a phone that you pick up and someone tells you how to get to the fields. 
Once there, a warden met us and found our pitch.  The pitches are clearly marked and easy to see in the daylight.  I recommend that if you are staying in a tourer, that you book early and ask for a view, because they are well worth having!  We stayed in Gurney's field which is tourers only.  It seems to attract people like us who just want a quiet holiday that is safe for the children to run around. 
The prices are great too.  9 nights cost us £157.50 for 2. Adults and 1 child, with hook up and awning in peak season.
The free showers are power showers and along with the toilets are very clean.  I did not have to queue anytime I went in.
The washing up facility was ok but there were only 2 sinks, so we had to wait once or twice to get in.  The water is very hot which is great.
There is a playing field for the children to fly kites and have games of cricket etc.  The childrens play area is small, but safe.
There is no shop on site, but a 10 minute walk (2 minute drive)down the road brings you to a local co-op.  Another 5 minutes past that brings you to a Morrisons.
Cromer had their carnival week when we visited, and there was LOADS to do.  Lots of it was free.  (E.G:We saw the red arrrows over our field, and saw a firework display too).  The area has lots to do anyway, even without the carnival.  The beaches are
 nice and clean.  Prices in the area are not over inflated for tourists.

 Wonderful sea views from top of campsite. Cromer and Sheringham within easy reach by car. 20 minute walk to East Runton with good access to beaches which were uncrowded. The campsite was good, plenty of space with good toilet/wash facilities. Next time we'll choose a more sheltered spot towards the bottom of Molls Meadow if possible, just to keep out of the wind. We loved it, dogs loved it and we'll definitely return.

Reviewer: Northants gaz 3 reviews from this member

 The camp site is in a good location and is only a 10 minute (or so!) walk to the beach. There is a rainbow store (co-op) close to the site, which is ideal as there are no shop facilities. The shower blocks are well maintained and clean, although unless your early getting into the shower, the water isn't that warm (although we went in August, and the site was busy!).
The only improvement to the site would be the access road from the reception up to the camping fields, as it is very bumpy in places.  The access from the camping fields to Cromer is better and smoother.
I will be returning next year, as the kids enjoyed it and made friends there.

 As virgins to camping this was our first attempt at pitching our tent and what a pleasant surprise it was. The reception was efficient and helpful, we pitched on the Marlpit site and had three magnificent days there. The shower blocks were very clean with an abundance of hot water for showering and washing the crocks. The close proximity of Cromer and West Runton gave us good shopping facilities with Morrisons and Rainbow stores less than a mile away. Will be back.
