The site is well laid out and spacious. The facilities are kept very clean. The grass is very well manicured. There is a superb cabin which has sinks, a freezer, fridge, ironing board, a tv and much more. You can get your paper delivered to your pitch each morning.

The owners are very pleasant and helpful. This is a lovely site for caravans and if I ever had a caravan, I would have no hesitation in going back.

However, I would not return in my tent. During our 10 days there, we were the only tent for most of the time. We were given a pitch in a corner which was overhung by trees and on the lower part of the site. It felt rather dark and damp - not helped by the wet days (It gently slopes up from the road) It was also next to the chickens and the part of the site nearest to the main road.

Therefore there was a fair amount of noise. None of things things would have been such an issue in a caravan I'm sure.

This is our 2nd visit to this site, review left last time we stayed (last year) and am pleased to say it was just as good if not better than the last visit. Billy and Pam have certainly made 'subtle' improvements to the site, which at first glance most people wouldn't notice. The gravel entrance has been lengthened further onto the field, there seemed to be more hardstanding pitches and the drainage doesn't appear to have any issues with. The comments made by previous members about it being 'cliquey' certainly in my opinion isn't an issue, even though we had only been to the site once before, we were made most welcome and I suspect that the more you return the more likely you are to bump into the same people (after all, if the site is right which it is, then people will return to it won't they ??) As I said in my 1st review, long may it continue - it is a credit to the owners and as there are no plans to extend the site (which I asked Billy when I was there) keep up the excellent work - it is a credit to you both.

We have just returned from 4 nights at this beautiful site. We were only able to book for 2 initially but Billy managed to extend our stay to 4 nights for us.

This is truly one of the best sites that we have ever had the pleasure of staying on. Beautifully clean toilets and showers, and a well equipped shop. We were impressed by the prices in the shop, which were no more expensive (and sometimes less expensive!) than supermarkets, and loved the honesty box idea, which didn't appear to be abused at all - restores your faith in people a bit, when you see what else is going on at the moment!

Everyone we met on site was friendly, and sociable, and Billy always had time for a chat as he went about his daily routine!

The pitches were all very well kept, and no sooner had a unit moved, than Billy was onto the job with his mower! This was the first experience we had had of gravel pitches, and it worked really well - to the point where we would request one if it was possible in future.

All in all a cracking site which we will return to without doubt. Just hope not too many people find out about it!

Have just returned from taking my folding camper Poppy to Poppyland and my parents stayed in Puddleduck Cottage which was absolutely delightful.

The campsite is beautifully looked after, pitches well maintained and grass manicured. It is a real suntrap with flat pitches and protection offered by neighboring trees. No road noise noticeable and considering how many dogs where on site, definitely no dog noise. Even the owner's cockerel doesn't get up until 7. 30am which was a nice alarm call. Toilet and shower block is well equipped and all other facilities and information are kept in a large portacabin.

We found it to be an ideal location for exploring North Norfolk and wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Thanks to Pam and Billy for their hospitality

We visited poppy land in the school holidays but as it is an adults only site it was not noisy with kids. The site is immaculate and the grounds very well kept. There are two toilets for women and two for men and a shower each. These cost 50p and are also very clean and tidy. The small shop has the basics and a daily paper is delivered to your door. The surrounding area is very quiet and there are lots of quiet lanes for walking or cycling. The beach is a bit to far to walk but buses stop just outside the site. There is no drain for motorhomes so we watererd the plants with our grey water. This is a lovely site and the owners are very helpful and friendly. There are no big shops close by it is a very rural part of the country.

What a really really nice site. We were greeted by billy the owner very friendly showed us to our pitch the site is very nice a well kept lovely nice green lawn nice size pitches you could have your caravan whatever way round we wanted which makes a nice change. Left us to set up before taking money again a nice touch

Loos are clean and tidy although had to pay 50p for shower you got plenty of hot water

Nice walk across road on footpath into village and small common the pub has closed down but hopefully someone will take it over.

Lovely fresh eggs yum yum and ice creams and bits and bobs for sale with honesty box really good idea

All in all one of the best sites we have stayed on small quiet and nice owners just really good just don't tell everybody!
