 Lovely little quite site not far from quaint village of Aylsham.

Brilliant National Trust Blickling hall & Felbrigg (I particularly liked as this last one as all the fixtures & furniture was the original) properties near by. Norwich Cromer & Sheringham a good day out.

Very reasonable price £17 inc electricity for caravan. Clean toilets & laundry room. Nice and flat

Would definitely visit again. Thanks Ian from Brenda & Charles

Reviewer: Drjbc 57 reviews from this member

 We chose this site for the Marriotts Way cycle track, a disused railway which provides a quiet, traffic-free route into Norwich. It's about 2km to the track, then about 14km to the city centre. The surface is smooth gravel, then tarmac within the city.

While agreeing with other reviewers that this is an excellent site, I can only think a previous reviewer confused it with somewhere else. There are no hedges separating the pitches, just one clump of shrubs and small trees between two of them. Otherwise it's a plain grass field but unusually large for a 5-van site, allowing plenty of space between neighbours. There's a very strong 4G signal on the O2 network. The 3-Mobile signal is weaker but useable.

As others have said, the facilities are adequate for the size of site, clean and well maintained.

 Very nice site, good facilities, clean and well looked after. The site is laid out in the style of French campsites, with the hedges separating some of the blocks. This makes it much more appealing than an open field.

The only drawback was poor Internet access in some places and lack of a telephone signal (Iím on 02).

Otherwise I can thoroughly recommend this site and I would certainly stay there again.

 A lovely site and perfect for quiet relaxation. The site is a large open field with electric hookups spaced around the edge. All grass pitches but dry, firm and level.

Loads of room between pitches and a large area in the middle for games. Also another adjacent field for dog walking. The small facilities block is a wooden cladded portacabin - clean and perfectly adequate.

Next to it is a pretty garden area with washing up sinks, grey water disposal, toilet disposal and recycling bins.

There's also a shed with maps and local information. No staff on site but the owner called in each day to make sure all ok. The amount of space for a fairly small number of pitches; and good facilities, make this a site to recommend highly.

Very reasonably priced. Easily accessible and ideally located for Norwich, the Broads and North Norfolk coast. Not much in Felthorpe village and the pub didn't look inviting.

A five minute drive or half hour walk through the woods to Horsford which has a small Co-op, a butchers, bakers, fish and chip shop and a couple of pubs.

 What a lovely site!

The toilet and shower facility is well maintained and clean!

We had originally booked 4 nights, however due to own circumstances we could only stay 3 the owner was understanding and was happy enough to change the booking to 3 nights, which we were very grateful of.

The owner checked in on us each day just make sure all was good!

Would recommend.

Thank you

Reviewer: Jelgood 1 review from this member

 Really lovely place, quiet and spacious. Field is well mowed and flat with well spaced pitches. Loads of space for kids to kick a ball about and play. Loo block is ok, clean with nice hot water, but the ladies shower did get grim by the end of the day.

Nice to have a wash room with fridge and freezer as we don't have electric hook up. Downside is that there were no spare electric sockets in the wash room or loo block at all - everything was hard wired in so if you are camping there is no where to charge a phone.

On returning home I checked their website to find we'd been overcharged. We were charged for EHU too which was annoying. I suspected this was the case at the time but we only saw the owner briefly when we first arrived and it seemed petty questioning it over £3/night difference.

Overall however, a nice site in a good location

Reviewer: Winniebago 2 reviews from this member

 Recently returned from this site and will definitely return. Booked the day before the journey the owner was very helpful.

On arrival we noticed the site was spotless, flat and really inviting.

Facilities were well located and wherever your pitch not to far to walk, they were kept in clean condition, with really hot water.

The site is quite small which we liked as it never became overcrowded, hookups were reliable with no problem with trip outs.

We highly recommend.

If I could rate value for money it would be 11/10. Lol

 We have just returned from our 2nd visit this year after visiting earlier during May half term.

All as previous review but new soap dispensers and an automatic air freshener have been introduced to the ladies & mens toilets.

Yet again we can only give this site the thumbs up!

Trevor & family will definitely return again in the near future.

Reviewer: Tinytoontown 4 reviews from this member

 We chose this site as we wanted to visit somewhere not too far from home, to venture out as 1st time caravanners (formerly campers) with 2 children aged 13 & 4 years.

What a perfect little site it is too and excellent pitch tariffs.

Perfect location to visit Norwich, Wroxham, The Broads, North Norfolk.

On arrival there is a code locked barrier for security (code given on confirmation of pitch)

Lovely level grassed field where you can choose where to pitch around the perimeter, leaving the centre of the field perfect for children/families and dogs to play.

We played many games of badminton and flying of kites!


The facilities are within a porta cabin which has been cladded with wood which makes it look so much nicer and fitting to the environment.

1 internal kitchen, 2 external washing up sinks under cover

Lovely tidy bin/recycle area, waste disposal points (set in a little garden type area)

Drinking water point

In the mens there are 2 toilets & 2 urinals, 2 sinks, soap dispenser, 1 hand dryer & shower.

In the ladies there is only 1 toilet, 1 sink, soap dispenser, hand dryer, hair dryer & a shower.

I have to say I wasn't sure about the lack of ladies facilities before we arrived, but to be honest it wasn't a problem.

There was never a queue and were attended twice a day by the owners

The owners are also currently awaiting planning permission to extend the facilities, so a thunmbs up from us :)

Also a lovely thought is a little information shed with books/magazines to borrow and local tourist leaflets of places to see and visit.

The best thing about this site for us, was that it only takes a small amount of units, no over crowding, no excessive noise or rowdiness. Just perfect :)

Reviewer: Alisam 1 review from this member

 Just returned from a 3 night stay at this great site, we have 3 dogs and there was plenty of room to exercise them on the field, and make a small garden for them in front of the motor home. There was 3 other units on site when we arrived but we had plenty of choice where to pitch without over crowding. All amenities where spotlessly clean. Information was readily available with a local map of walks which took us through the woods and along some country lanes. We will most definitely return to this site as it was just what we wanted peace and quiet for a few days rest. There was also a number to contact 24/7 if assistance needed.
