This is one of the most expensive (£30 per night) and lavishly appointed sites we've ever stayed at. Every pitch has hard standing, water and water disposal. The facility blocks have turf roofs and the showers and toilets are to the highest standards. Access is by individual smart cards which you drop in a box as you leave. The free wifi has a strong signal all over the site, though the internet connection is not very fast, so most people will prefer to use their phone's 4G. Besides the grey-water disposal on the pitches, there's an excellent drive-over grill for motorhomes.

As others have noted, it is 'dog-friendly' and there was a VERY large number of dogs - too many for our taste, but none was causing a nuisance during our stay.

The touring pitches are on the landward side of the statics, shielded from them by trees. Southwards they look out over a broad expanse of Norfolk landscape, empty and flat. You can walk out in two directions. Going west and through the main entrance you're a short walk from the beach cafe (again dog-friendly!) and the road and miniature railway into Wells-next-the-Sea. Going east, there's a small gate that reaches the coast path which follows the inland edge of the trees behind the beach. After 2km it reaches Holkmam gap and emerges onto the wide expanse of sand and shingle beach.

While we were there we realised why it's 'Wells-next-the-Sea' not 'Wells-on-Sea': the tide does go out a very long way!

This site is great for dog owners as you don't have to have your dog on a lead. Woman along by us had 3 spaniels which were never on leads, I'd say at least 70% of owners just let their dogs wander about freely. Still that's fine as there were no signs about saying dogs on leads and I didn't see any poo bins.

Fantastic shower block, about a year old, which were constantly being cleaned.

Large pitches with full service (leccy, water and grey waste)

No wardens on this site, but they have a number for security. Security let people on site quite late at night, not good when the late arrivals are still hammering awning pegs in at 10. 15pm!

There is a site shop, which is quite a hike from the touring field. You can walk into Wells town which has some nice shops, butcher's, bakers, a Nisa etc. I think the nearest supermarket is a 25 minute drive away in Fakenham. You can also catch the little train from the site entrance into Wells-£1. 50 each way.

The touring site is quite new, so the shrubs and trees are still very young so when it's blowing a gale, until the trees mature there's no protection.

Would we come back? Very doubtful, due to the cost and the dogs wandering around off their leads.

This was the first time we had visited Pinewoods Holiday Park's new Touring section. It has been a residential holiday park for, well, it seems like forever, but the Holkham Estate who own the park built a very large touring park at the back of the original and it opened late in 2016 I think. Whenever it was, it was very recent and that is reflected in the site itself.

Frankly it is exceptional, and will become a fabulous site when the trees have grown around the border.

This is a very flat site located literally just yards from the strip of glorious Scots pines that run along the coast between Wells and all the way to Holkham beach. Although it certainly helps being beside a little piece of English country/beachside paradise!

All of the pitches, and there are a lot of them, are flat, have a 16 amp EHU, water and grey waste facility. They're all well spaced too, so no one's parked cheek-by-jowl next to their neighbour and there's plenty of room for an awning, no matter how big.

There are two very large and very impressive amenity blocks. I say impressive, but really, I mean they are quite simply amazing. Possibly among the very best amenity blocks on a caravan site that I have ever experienced.

Fabulous showers, with enough space to spread out in the cubicles and still keep your clothes dry. Heated floors! I repeat, heated floors! And plentiful hot water in very modern, immaculately clean surroundings.

Naturally there are also facilities for washing up, laundry and chemical toilets, all of which are as beautifully planned as they are clean.

Are there any downsides? Not really, but if I had a choice, I would not have the keycard security to access everything except the chemical toilet disposal point. I kept on forgetting the card and having traipsed halfway to the amenity block before remembering, I was constantly walking backwards and forwards to go and get my forgotten key card. But then, maybe I shouldn't be so forgetful.

The wind can whip across this stunning site, so those young saplings around the boundary can't grow quick enough. I just hope they've planted some young Scots Pines around there to keep it in character with the legendary tree line along the beach.

Would I go back? In a heartbeat. This would have to be one of the greatest caravan sites in Norfolk, if not the East of England.

I thoroughly recommend giving Pinewoods Holiday Park a visit, but plan well in advance as it's sure to be busy. And if you do go, and you're there over a weekend, make sure you book Sunday lunch at the Victoria Inn at Holkham. If you're feeling energetic, you can walk along the beach at Wells all the way to one of the best roast beef Sunday lunches in the county.

We stayed at Pinewoods site for 3 nights over the October holidays. This looks like a newly built site, very clean and spacious. We stayed on a hard standing pitch and with water, waste and electric hook up. The toilet facilities on this site are excellent. Very modern, warm and the showers are hot and powerful. Very modern site which even has car charging point if you have brought one. Only down side to the site itís very exposed to the elements and when the wind picks up you will know about it. There is a small hobby train which you can get from the site to the town, the town has a great selection of dinning places and the site is nicely located to visit Holkham estate. Dogs are welcome on this site and the beach has a dedicated dog area all year round. The beach is very beautiful, long sandy dunes and a lovely beach cafe which is also dog friendly.

The only down side to this site was the reception, they was not helpful and not very friendly. They had no info on the train service which pulled into their site and no info on local area when asked. There is a gym and I believe pool on site but this is for residents only. We did feel like this was a resident site and we were a side line to make more money. Other than this itís an excellent site to explore this beautiful area and would recommend this highly on our list even if we canít use the parks facilities.

Hate to be negative but here goes. When booking by phone I explained that our friends would be staying at the same time so could we request that we were close to them. No problem at all she said we will get you as close together as possible and said she had made a note of it on our booking. When we arrived we were given pitch 32 and I asked when checking in were we near our friends ? cant tell you that because of data protection said the reception staff, so off we went to pitch 32 phoned our friends and they were on pitch 1 ! just about as far away as you could get. At this point I was ready to go home as the pitch looked awful, rang reception and said I wasn't happy so had to walk back down to reception and we were given the choice of 62 or 65 we chose 62 as that was opposite our friends. I'm sure the site will be nice in a year or 2 but not at the moment. For £30 a night in September it is overpriced yes it is by the coast but other things let it down. As for customer service try sending your staff for some training and if you cant site friends near to each other just say so at the point of booking not much to ask is it ? Just one other thing PITCH 2 WAS EMPTY ALL THE TIME WE WERE THERE RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO OUR FRIENDS !

Arrived about an hour early and got told that our pitch would not be ready until designated time (1pm). When I we did check in, we found the receptionist rude and very unhelpful as waiting for the pitch we got caught in a shower and so were soaked. We asked about laundry so we could dry our clothes. She failed to mention that we needed tokens to use the dryer. When we did get to the pitch we found the site was half empty, so why did we have to wait. On speaking to other people staying here we heard other more stories of staff being deeply and unhelpful. The only chemical waste was blocked for 2 days but I did find one that wasn't. Touring site is very open and prone to strong winds. We will certainly not be returning here.
