 Fantastic campsite, great shower, toilet, laundry facilities.

Bar/restaurant was also very good with a nice selection of food.

Only 6 miles from the coast, quite beaches or livelier Great Yarmouth.

Fantastic value for money.

We would definitely return in the future.

 A really beautiful site with helpful, friendly staff, we stayed for two nights in the Rabbit Grove section of the campsite. Our pitch was a serviced hard standing pitch on pea gravel.

In hindsight, we’d have preferred to be in one of the nicer, quieter, grassier areas. Our pitch was generous though this area in general was crowded compared to the others on the site. Pitches are arranged around the edge, with pitches also arranged radially in the middle, where we were.

This felt a little crowded. It would be better with the outer pitches arranged around a central feature. The pitch next to us had crammed in a caravan, awning, campervan, tent and cars. They had used all of the hook up sockets and we had to ask them to remove one for us to use. A bit awkward. I wonder if the site realised they were all taking up one pitch? 🤔

Facilities were clean and tidy but we preferred using the ones at the “Basecamp” rather than our nearest, older block, where neither hairdryer worked and it looked a bit ‘tired’. Basecamp showers were set within a home from home ‘bathroom’…lovely! Free, plentiful, powerful hot water. Just what you need after a day of exploring.

We were unfamiliar with the area so asked Basecamp staff for recommendations. The lady asked what we liked doing and recommended a bike ride into nearby pretty Thurne which was an absolutely beautiful route, chock full of wildlife.

She also recommended how to see the broads by boat for the following day which we also thoroughly enjoyed. Staff’s local knowledge really is outstanding, with maps and info provided at no extra cost.

Basecamp’s bar has a lovely decked area for drinks at the back where we could sit with the dog (who wasn’t permitted inside). It isn’t undercover so we were lucky to have sunny weather!

Overall, we loved this site and would stay again, although we would perhaps choose a different spot, even if that meant ditching the EHU.

 Lovely area, great customer service and clean showers and toilet block.

Park for kids was good and only 4 minutes drive from Great Yarmouth beach, 9 mins drive from hemsby which had a lovely beach.

The bar and bbq food was alright prices and food was good.

Would definitely book again

 Fantastic campsite! Booked with less than 4 weeks notice for 2 EHU pitches together and although we couldn't stay over a weekend, thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday through Friday break away with friends.

The site was quiet due to it still being school time.

There were only 4 tents in our field- (South Park). The pitches were large - enabling us to pitch our Mosedale 5 and front extension with room to spare.

The toilets and showers were spotless- those at Basecamp are newer and had larger walk in showers that formed individual shower rooms with a toilet and sink. Staff were always friendly and polite.

We used Basecamp for several meals - excellent value Pizzas and Burgers and had breakfast on our final day to ensure we could strike tents early for the 11am check out.

There is also a small shop that stocks basic provisions and delicious icecream! Played pool (£1) and crazy golf (£3pp). Noted that there were several play areas for children - but we were 4 adults.

A great location to access the Broads - took a dayboat out for the afternoon for £75, visited Winterton Beach and also Great Yarmouth which was only a 20 minute car ride away.

Will hopefully be returning again soon!

Couldn't fault the site at all and hope to return again.

 Beautiful and very well maintained site

Toilet and showers were excellent even had a bath Ideal for young children

Cafe /rests were lovely. Only complaint is that dogs were not allowed in the cafe. The weather was really bad for a couple of days but we were not allowed in with the dog. Other dog owners were complained as we pay to take our dogs but cannot sit inside in the bad weather. As only one area of the site is dog free I was surprised that no area was available to sit inside with dogs

This stops me giving it a score of 10

 Very quiet site with some lovely views over farmland.

The owner was very welcoming without being obtrusive.

A pleasant one mile walk to the village where the local pub did excellent meals.

Overall an excellent site for a chill out few days.

Reviewer: Robin91 25 reviews from this member

 Site was good. Only 3 or 4 caravans there, as it was low season. Pretty big site. Taking about 120 caravans and tents. All spread out under trees and parkland, belonging to the Hall.

Toilets and showers ( free ) were excellent. Cleaned twice a day usually. About 8 miles to Yarmouth.

Pitches were good. Had one with everything.

Cheap per night. £15. But was rising to £30 a night over Easter.

Yes I think we will return.

Reviewer: Jonk 22 reviews from this member

 We have just got back from 4 nights at Clippesby Hall. Chose this as a base to view the seals on the beach at Horsey Gap also to visit Great Yarmouth and Norwich. We were on a hard standing, fully serviced. The setting was in pine trees with lit walks through the woods to get to the toilet block

Despite the building work going on ready for next year it was as peaceful site with all the facilities kept immaculately clean. I don't know how they managed that in November with building work going on.

The pitch was firm and well drained, pegs went in easily but firmly.

The Shower rooms are amazing, each cubicle being a mini bathroom with toilet and basin as well as a spacious shower. An example of the attention to detail and customer experience, there is a hand sanitizer dispenser at the chemical toilet disposal point and yes, it was full!

Staff are friendly and very helpful.

 This was our third visit to Clippesby and it doesn't disappoint.

The location makes the Broads, Norwich Yarmouth, North Norfolk and the coast readily accessible.

The pitches are very generous. All have easy access to water and most, if not all, have electricity if you want it.

Whilst Thurne is a good length walk away, the on-site pub/restaurant has everything you'd go to a village pub for.

The playgrounds are good and the mini-golf is terrific.

Did I mention the pool? It's not huge but big enough to cool off on a hot day.

The shop has plenty of staples and a few local treats. Pizzas are made fresh every evening and the cafe will keep you refreshed if you don't want to boil your own kettle.

There are toilet and shower blocks of various ages - all clean and well-maintained as well as laundry facilities.

Work continues to improve the site but is not at all intrusive.

Only two very tiny issues (don't let these stop you going, heed the 9/10): The nearby B1152 is not a busy road but it is sometimes audible from some parts of the site at night. Equally, Norwich is not a busy airport but very occasionally (once a day?) a plane approaches over the site.
