Just spent a night at Hevingham Lakes on a very last minute trip out in a tent with our 3 spaniels. What a gem. Very reasonably priced and very spacious site.

Absolutely perfect for dog owners or walkers as there is a huge heath surrounding the site, just be mindful of the wild ponies. Huge pitches but very limited hook ups. Great lake for fishing.

Ten mins from Norwich shops pubs etc. Only one toilet/shower block which could definitely do with an update. Basic but clean. We will definitely be back for another short break.

WOW, what a wonderful place to have a peaceful holiday. Beautiful, peaceful, dark skies. Can't recommend this site enough. Owners are like family and they love dogs.

Great doggie walks over the heather field, but be careful as ponies are running free. You could be anywhere in the world but why when you have a site like this on your doorstep.

Stayed here for 3 nights in May. We chose to pitch by the lakes as the CL bit was next to the road albeit a very quiet one. Spacious pitches, adequate toilet and shower facilities although not heated.

A bit of a walk to taps and bins. Owners were very friendly and helped us when we had problems with our electrics. Good value at £15. 50 per night and £14. 50 on CL.

The site is remote but that's part of its charm. Lovely walks on the site with access onto Buxton Heath. Would recommend.

What a lovely site! Quiet, peaceful, spacious. We stayed for a week and wished we could have stayed longer. The owners are lovely. We had a spacious pitch with EHU, overlooking the lake. The surrounding views of the lake, trees and the wildlife were great. It is a great site to walk around.

Occasionally we heard other campers who were situated across the lake, but usually it was dogs barking rather than people. The site is adjacent to a working arable farm but this caused no problem to us whatsoever. Likewise there is a sawmill about 1/4 mile away but this was only noticeable when walking along the drive to the owner's house.

The facilities were adequate and clean. There is only one shower in the mens toilet/shower block and, I'm told, one in the ladies. However I never had to queue so this was fine. The showers are on a timer (50p for 5 minutes approx. ) This is a very good idea as it deters users from hogging the shower and using up all the hot water.

There are a number of shops and supermarkets in Aylsham, which is about 10 minutes drive from the site.

The surrounding area is beautiful and there are so many lovely places to visit. It takes a week to do all the National Trust places.

Hevingham Lakes is a very nice site set in arable farmland. It has two pitching areas, A CL and a much larger area set in woodland which appeared to be occupied mainly by seasonally pitched 'vans and statics next to the fishing lakes. It appeared to me to be a nice place for a seasonal pitch. There are also a couple of holiday cottages.

We stayed on the CL which is spacious (very approx 100M x 50M), level, hedged with a very well prepared surface. We experienced an extended period of heavy rain but the field did not become waterlogged.

Conveniently located in one corner of the pitching area is a small modern shower (50p) / wc facility together with the water & chem disposal.

Very dog friendly (No charge). Directly accessible from the site is Buxton Heath which is a very pleasant place for you and your pet to enjoy.

No local shops. Most of your basic requirements can be obtained in Horsford. (Approx 4 miles). Norwich Caravans is nearby for any spares / repairs.

Travel tip: Approach using B1149 (Holt Road). If you use the intuitively more obvious A140 (Aylsham / Cromer Road) you will find the last mile or so very narrow.

To sum up: a very comfortable and spacious site.

Been home a few days after a week in one of the static caravans.

What a lovely peaceful spot to be in. The sign for the site is a tad hard to see but hey who would want a huge sign on such a narrow road.

On arrival we were told our caravan was the first on the left, the keys were in the door. We found it no problem. Problems started as soon as we got in, it was very dirty and quite obviously hadn't been cleaned for a while. I gave it a pretty good clean but realised I was supposed to be on holiday! Anyway we didn't complain until the Tuesday which was silly of us. They practically accused us of lying. I have a few photos of what I didn't clean.

Had a look at the on site loos which seemed very clean, only one shower for women and one for men, . Not enough if the site was busy. 50p for the shower which I thought a bit steep if a family are using them.

The site is gorgeous, quiet and peaceful, no traffic, just the birds. Lovely fishing lakes, quite shallow waters but it don't stop them biting😄.

I would oh back but certainly not in the caravan I was in

Spent 7 nights at this lovely site we just love it here.

Went with the family who stayed in the new 6 berth holiday caravan while we had a pitch for our tourer.

These people that run this site are amazingly friendly, really nice folk.

Had some great fishing with good carp and Bream, very peaceful

Place to chill, the only slight downside is the shower block could be bigger, but this did not spoil our holiday.

We will be back again next year, great value for money!

Reviewer: Leadbelly 2 reviews from this member

Three night stay just after August Bank Holiday. Four adults and two kids in our group with one camper van and one tent.

When I booked several months ago I was told there was only one pitch available with an EHU so our party would be split between the two areas of the site. On arrival it was obvious that almost half the EHU pitches were free. The owner was very reluctant to allow our friends tent onto this area, even though they were happy to pay for the electric they wouldn't use but after some haggling we had adjoining pitches.

The pitches were very generous. We had a campervan, large awning and gazebo with plenty of room left for cricket! Mature trees surrounded the area which was very sheltered.

The facilities are pretty basic but clean. I could never work out how to operate the lights in the gents and water pressure was very low in the pot wash area.

No shortage of fish in the lakes and we all enjoyed a couple of hours each evening catching lots of them.

We visited Bewilderwood and Dinosaur Adventure, both within 20/25 minutes drive. Good options if you have kids. Unanimous opinion was Bewilderwood was by far the best day out.

We didn't need to do any shopping whilst we were staying so I don't know how close shops might be.

One note of warning. There is a sawmill/timber yard close to this site. Operations started well before first light which woke up several of our party every morning. The disturbance went on for several hours and we found it quite intrusive.

Site itself is good but the facilities and nearby sawmill let it down somewhat.

Just got back from our second visit to the site and are looking forward to returning next year. This is a family friendly site and if you have children I can recommend it. There is lots of open space to explore, a heath a few steps away and a fishing lake.

One of the things we enjoy when we visit is there are a few different fields to camp in and lots of nooks and crannies, so you can enjoy a degree of seclusion if you choose. It is surrounded by trees and greenery so you really get a sense of being in the countryside, not just a big field with a sea of tents around you. It is also very quiet.

The owners are very friendly and helpful and keep their site clean and well maintained. The toilets and shower blocks were always clean and everything you would expect from a camping cleaning block. You are enjoying nature after all.

Well situated to explore the broads and beaches we would highly recommend this site.
