We stopped at Breckland Meadows for a week and enjoyed our stay although the pitches are quite small. The toilets were OK. There is a good long walk for dogs and it is a 20 minute walk to Waitrose and only 10 minutes to Asda. Town is very run down which is a shame although market on Saturday is good. We had an excellent meal at the newly opened restaurant, can't remember the name but it is the only smart place there so you can't miss it. The warden is very friendly and helpful. Would probably visit again.

On arriving at this site, the owner was very helpful; showing us to the pitch, providing a tv co-ax for the site aerial, pointing out places of interest and eateries. The shop/reception had loads of local info and a decent supply of ‘essentials’ for the site – including gas.

On first impression, the site – which appears to have a sprinkling of seasonal ‘vans, looks neat and orderly, but when you look closer it seems there's little maintenance being done, with large weeds growing everywhere; and its not just outside that corners are being cut.

The modern shower/loo block also looks impressive, but the fact is that the gents half smells strongly of urine, with the walls and woodwork grubby at lower levels. The filthy mop bucket of water in there, which didn’t ever appear to change, probably had a lot to to do with this.

The showers, again only in the gents, were lacking a curtain, which led to your things getting wet along with you if you wernt very careful.

This said, the actual shower was as good as you will get anywhere; plenty of free hot water, which wasn’t affected by someone else flushing a loo or using a tap, which can be a regular occurrence on camp sites.

There is also a laundry room and pots area, which looked clean enough from the outside.

Being in-between two roads – one a bypass, there is a lot of traffic noise most of the day/night, so take note if this is something that would bother you.

I would also say there are too many pitches shoe-horned into too small a space the site occupies, but that's a matter of opinion.

The site is handy for walking into Swaffham – about 20 minutes along the road – which is busy but has a footpath. Or, along the disused railway, which takes a bit longer as it runs away from the town centre.

The town itself is a pleasant place with an array of shops, pubs and eateries, where you will find just about anything you need. We had a couple of meals at the George Hotel, where the food is excellent. The towns modest museum-cum-info centre is also worth a look-in.

Here they have an amazing collection of metal-detector finds, all by one local-living French woman, stretching back a thousand years.

One bizarre thing I have to mention about this site, is that come dusk it is over-run with rabbits.

As the light fades, the whole site resembles a scene from Watership Down. They are everywhere among the units, oblivious to folk ambling past. I can only assume they breed in the nearby railway cutting, and obviously have no predators on the camp site.

At £14 a night inc. Leccy, the ‘price is right’, but they really do need to get the hygiene aspects in the gents sorted.

We really enjoyed this quiet Adults only site.

We were able to walk into Swaffham with its variety of shops, market place, banks & pubs,we enjoyed not having to drive.

We stayed 2 nights on our tour of Norfork and this site enabled us to visit Thetford forest easily, we parked our van for free in Lynford Stag carpark in the forest and enjoyed a day walking in the woods.

The site it's self was friendly, clean and tidy with lovely hot showers and laundry room, shop and information centre.

This is a great site for adults wanting peace and quiet.

This is a great campsite with just about everything you need on site or close at hand. It's a short walk into Swaffham for shops, pubs and cafes (we recommend the Horse and Groom for food and a drink);

the site itself has basics for sale and you can also order a paper if you want one. Electric hook-up was 16 amp which is excellent. The site is well laid out

My only disappointment was that the heating wasn't on in the shower block. But then it wasn't that cold. We also appreciated the fact that it is adults-only and it was very quiet at night; there's a fair amount of road noise but nothing to keep you awake.

It was brilliant value for money at just £11.75 / night.

I was really looking forward to staying at this site from reading the reviews

The plus point was that on arrival we were greeted by the owner, who was very friendly. The reception & shop seems to have lots of information on local points of interest but as we are local to Norfolk we didn't need these.

Due the friendly owner I feel really bad about this but now the downsides I'm afraid. We were given a tent pitch in between the electric hook-up point & the TV aerial for the caravans so it was a little cramped for our tent, canopy & car. The toilets & showers were ok. The ladies had curtains in the showers which divided them up into a showering & changing area, but my husband told me the mens did not so he returned with slight soggy clothing after his shower!

Although nothing to do with the campsite, the old railway track behind the site isn't as nice I thought it would be either.

There was also some road noise as the site is right on the main road.

All-in-all it isn't a bad site but just not as nice as I had been lead to believe (unless you are lucky enough to get one of the other & better tent pitches).

Very friendly welcome from Andy who was most helpful during our stay in the snow. Plenty of info available, books and dvds etc in nice little shop.

Lovely walk along the old railway line to Waitrose and Swaffham is a lovely market town within walking distance.

Simple Freeview connection provided - in all really excellent site and very good value. We will come back for more in better weather
