This was our second visit to Kelling Heath and even though it was unplanned until the day before arrival everything from booking to departing was really nice. We had to change our plans due to flooding at another site and the staff at Kelling Heath could not have been more helpful. We were with family in another unit with a dog so were placed on the Red area.

The pitches are all reasonably level and well marked out. Some have hard standing and have full facilities, water, EHU, drainage and TV point. Others are more basic but just as pleasant.

The toilets and showers modern and are kept clean and warm at all times. One thing we especially like is wandering off into centre which has a most excellent pub and very well stocked shop. There is a swimming pool and plenty of other places to chill out, which unfortunately we did not get the time to try, but from what we saw, all looked excellent.

The site makes a good effort to be environmentally friendly, which is nice to see. There is a great view- point from the site overlooking the sea, which is well worth seeking out. There is a platform for the train to stop which takes you into Sherringham or Holt, both are nice to visit.

We purchased a ‘Rover Ticket’ from reception, allowing us as many journeys as we wanted on the day for £20 per adult. It is more costly for the train when there are ‘Specials’ running which was the case during our stay.

The only gripe we had during our stay was not with the site, but with several fellow campers, who continually ignored the dogs on lead signs. Some dogs wandered free, completely unattended, on a regular basis and although not generally causing a nuisance on this occasion, that is not always the case!

Sherringham was very dog friendly with drinking bowls in the sea front pub and many of the shops.

4th visit here but first in school holidays. This site is very popular with family/friends groups who mainly occupy adjacent plots to take advantage of the open pitches and set up with their tents on the outside. It creates a very convenient arrangement for everyone to share meals etc.

There is lots of space for children to play in. Climbing frames, walks, fishing pond, and cycling. We found that the children buzzing around the site on their bikes have little or no road sense.

Not all of the attractions have a cost but the fishing sessions where children are taught about the pond life and how to fish in crystal clear water are excellent and should not be missed. Booking is essential and all the equipment is provided free!

The shower blocks are very well equipped with the latest electronic showers. Plenty of washing places for pots and pans as well.

If you like your plots neatly manicured wth nice hedges giving you privacy you will not find many of them here. You will have to get used to campers of all ages walking through your plot especially if it provides them with the shortest route to the hub of the campsite.

In our experience Security needs to be improved as we had a white van scouting around our area at midnight when all traffic movement is banned. Reception staff a little dismissive when we reported the incident to them the following morning. We did see security staff walking around the site early every evening but remained concerned about openness of the site given the number of bikes etc are left overnights. I recommend that you lock bigs etc up every night and not to leave valuable accessories outside if you can help it.

We stayed here in the summer holidays but it still did not appear to busy. It's a much larger site than I anticipated (300 acres!)

Plus points:

- food in the bar and takeaway pizza place was good (pizza a little overpriced)

- loads of cycle routes

- good gym / indoor pool (extra but reasonable - £5/each pp each day)

- never queued for toilets / showers

- pond dipping free as was intro to fishing

- decent well stocked shop (emergency only as this was way too dear)

- helpful friendly staff

- good sized pitches and all seemed pretty level

- really good assault course for the kids

- seemed very relaxing (except Saturday night)

Improvement points

- more water points needed - expensive 'premium' pitch and the water taps were nowhere near

- launderette - each wash lasted 20 minutes! So two washes needed. More money for them

- no security gate. We found this really odd - huge site and literally ANYONE can come on unchallenged and help themselves.

- new toilets with digital showers / flush = style over substance, toilets often do not flush and it's grim.

All in all we really enjoyed the stay here.

Great site for families. Loads to do for the kids and the bar is also great for the adults. The location is spot on if you like walking. The pitches are quite small so not much privacy but other than that highly recommend it.

Stopped here for a wet and windy weekend but still managed to have a really good time. The campsite is clean, the staff are friendly the food in the Forge is nice and the views from the top of the red section over weybourne are fantastic. The train is worth taking either to Sheringham or Holt.

The shower blocks Look new and they're very clean and modern. The pictures are well kept and there is plenty of space.

Stayed 8 nights in red area as we had dogs on premier pitch.

As with most reviews it is expensive, but we could not fault the site.

It is a large site but it never felt it even though height of season.

We used toilet block in yellow area as closer and never queued and always kept tidy.

The walks are great.

We tried both indoor (extra fees) and outside pools (included in price) both okay and clean.

We eat at pub on site one night and found menu a bit small and not much choice for the veggie wife.

We used The Ship at Weybourne -need to book this time of year- for our main meals a couple of nights and one lunch. Nice and dog friendly.

The pizzas in the Square were very good for a takeaway which we sat outside on the Square once and took back the other.

The service all round was excellent.

Glad we paid by phoning for premier pitch (not available to book on line) as very generous size and you not so packed in, as red area was the busiest, the yellow area, if you have no dogs, was a lot more spaced out.

The Square is a relaxed place and never had problem getting a table, you can also take your own food and drink to listen to music and nice it ends about 9pm as no loud merry holiday makers, just relaxing atmosphere, not our normal choice of music types but we still enjoyed.

Drinks in bar are more expensive than our locals but did find same prices in other local eateries were about the same.

There is only wifi in the Square area which was okay and did not miss it back at the van, made a nice change for our children to more than be on their mobiles all the time.

Although we have reluctantly decided to sell our caravan we would come back and use the statics or lodges on site, as they looked really nice and very well spread out.

Site is not far from Sheringham which is a nice small resort, try the Two Lifeboats for a good meal and beers.

All in all we were very pleased with the site and very relaxed after our break, worth the 5stars.

Having stayed three years in a row as the children just love north Norfolk, we felt that the cost of a pitch is now far too expensive.

The wi if is dreadful and should be all over the site as most people have I phones and emergencies happen at home as well on site.

The toilet facilities have been modernised but still great improvements can be made.

Showers are only warm and very little pressure.

There is not enough facilities when they decide to clean in the morning and this could be done in the afternoon when not so many people want a shower.

Automatic flushes do not always work especially when little ones use the toilet.

Tree roots are very dangerous on the path to the toilets as my granddaughter fell over twice quite badly so take a torch.

To get water you have to go along way.

Just a few gripes but over all north Norfolk is beautiful.

Reviewer: Custard15 16 reviews from this member

An element of shock and trepidation washed over me as I walked into the large reception of the ‘Village Square’. Yes, I knew it was a large campsite with lodges and lots of facilities, but not having visited their own website, I hadn’t realised how large. Ah well, it’s only for one night, let’s be open minded. So we followed the one-way system to our allocated pitch, the cheapest on offer, but we were not too disappointed. A nice large area, only marred by the large parched area left by previous long-stay awnings. So being a quiet mid-week stop, we took the risk of ignoring the detailed instructions of how to position the van (knowing we might be instructed to move), and itched closer to the neighbouring tent so that we could step out onto grass – still leaving at least 7m fire-gap!

I maintain that visiting this site when busy would not be my thing – far too many pitches, but when quiet, it has its plus points. Lots of great facilities in the touring area, lots of loos and showers, washing up points, water taps, motorhome service points. You can’t fault the natural environment in which Kelling Heath sits, and it’s well worth following on to the walking trails … but that’s not necessary, I spotted a Jay in bushes near the facility block !

Sadly we didn’t have time to try the health club and pool, - much of the sports facilities are not included in the pitch price, which in itself was very high already. We did nip into the bar area and considered having some food there, but the staff were so slack in their service that it would have taken forever … and we couldn’t even locate the full menu, just see the specials board. I suspect that during the week, the bars/restaurants are mainly used by regulars with lodges.

A great example of what large caravan parks ought to be, and worthy holders of a Gold David Bellamy award and Gold Eco Tourism mark, but too big and regimented still for me.

Absolutely fantastic site. All the amenities you would want for a campsite including shop, pool, bar and restaurant, pizza bar which included takeaway, gym and fitness. The pitch was standard but very large. The toilet blocks were fantastic. So up to date and always very clean. Staff were all very friendly. Would definitely recommend this site and am planning to go back next year.

5th time to Kelling and it's just as good. We don't tend to use the on site facilities much but the Saturday local producers fair, on site mini market and the table tennis are always good. Great base to explore the North Norfolk area which is just lovely. Yellow area is the best, the new showers are much better. All in all highly recommended
