Here we are again on our second visit of three this year!

This site keeps getting better - there is now access to WIFI via Caravan Connect which I am currently using to write this review.

The majority of the pitches now also have access to a TV aerial so TV signal pickup is much improved which came in handy when we realised we had left our Freesat box at home!

The Groveland farm shop is well worth a visit (about 2 mins drive) with a good butchers and cafe which serves lovely cakes and coffees as well as full meals.

A boat trip on the broads is well worth the time if the weather is good (about 25 mins drive away to Wroxham).

Good beach nearby - no dog walking restrictions here.

Whilst here this time, we have experienced a really heavy downpour and were amazed to see how quickly the water drained away from the site.

Looking forward to Sept hols already.

A lovely little site all round. The owner(s) couldn’t be more helpful, even offering an early morning newspaper delivery to my door. There is a small cabin offering lots of local info, and a few essentials (with honesty box), along with books and games to borrow.

The site is level with just fourteen pitches around the edge of a large sheltered field. As the tv reception is poor, there is a free co-ax on offer to tap into the site aerial, which is linked to each pitch up the left side of the field only.

So mention this if its important when booking. The showers/loos are clean enough, but the shower itself was a bit iffy till it got up to speed.

For peace and quiet, you wont find a more relaxing site, and being adults-only is a bonus! Its a place I plan to return to when in the area.

Thorpe Market is just a small cluster of houses, with no pub, shop, or anything. We went into the nearby village of South Repps - (1 mile away) which has a pub doing food (which we didn’t sample), and a store. We also visited nearby Roughton, (maybe a mile and a half) which has a pub and Malaysian restaurant, and fish-shop. There is also a petrol garage/Post Office store here.

There is a bus-stop outside the site which we used to go into Cromer. Here there were plenty of shops, but like most traditional sea-side resorts nowadays, is now looking a bit down-at-heel, but still worth a visit, as its not all ‘rock and chips’.

There are a number of smaller villages on the coast nearby, that are well worth a look-in, with miles of unspoilt beach’s.

We have just returned from a week at Poppylands and found it to be a charming and well kept little site, that was ideally situated for us to be able to explore this beautiful part of the country.

The site is situated in the pretty village of Thorpe Market and as soon as you enter the driveway it very quickly becomes apparent that this site is immaculately kept and oozes charm.

The amenities are kept spotlessly clean, with good sized pitches and there is even a well stocked shop that relies on an honesty box. There are freshly laid eggs available daily and Newspapers delivered free to your door.

The owners Billy and Pam are an integral part of the overall charm of this site. They really can't do enough for you.

We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather and found plenty of coastal walks within a short distance of which details can be found on site.

Another must is a boat trip on the Broads from Horning. Although we would suggest you pre book during good weather. One of the highlights for my husband was a visit to Cromer Pier Theatre to watch Chas and Dave on their final tour!

We visited the Vernon Arms in Southrepps where we found the food to be excellent and reasonably priced.

In summary a charming, tranquil and well kept site in a beautiful part of the country.

We definitely intend to return to this site.

Arrived on site to find it quite waterlogged but owner kindly pitched the van onto the hardstanding for me with his 4x4. The site seemed to be very sheltered and the facilities about adequate for this small site but not heated. I had a paper delivered to the van each morning which was quite a nice touch and there was a small shop with a honesty box. There was a bus stop right outside the site but unfortunately the pub opposite was closed. We used the chipshop in the village nearby and had some of the nicest fish and chips ever, and across the road was a pub serving Asian food which seemed very busy. The site is only a short drive from Cromer and Sherringham and about half an hour from Norwich. It is excellent value for money and I will almost certainly go back

We have already left one review of this beautiful, immaculate site and have just returned for a second visit and it's got EVEN BETTER! Billy has been very busy and has installed ariel hoop-ups to each pitch - so no twisting the ariel. Checking where everyone else is pointed theirs and still getting no signal. Need I say more??? Just plug in and tune in! Billy you have saved our sanity!

We did not feel this site was at all 'clicky' as previous reviewer has said - Pam and Billy make everyone very welcome, but are not 'in your face' - - their friendliness rubs off on campers and everyone just talks to each other - it's a wonderful atmosphere. We certainly didn't know anyone before we arrived - but we do now!T his truthfully is the best site we have been to since beginning our caravanning 20 odd years ago!

So keep up the good work Pam and Billy - you aren't picky or clicky! Just really very good hosts and thank you for another lovely weekend!

Can't wait for Easter next year now!

Back again on our third visit this year!

As always, Pam and Billy are great hosts - very friendly and welcoming. Very peaceful with large pitches and sheltered by the trees around the perimeter of the site. There are plenty of sunny pitches on this site and you can even choose which way to site your caravan!

Good clean facilities and nice touches such as basic supplies (including ice-creams!) with an 'honesty box'. Two nice local pubs nearby serving excellent food (good value for money) which also allow dogs (lovely countryside walk to one of them - approximately 20 mins)

As with any excellent site, there are many customers who return time and again and there are always a few familiar faces when we arrive!

All in all, the best site by far we have visited - we will be booking for next year's hols before we leave!
