 Lovely site surrounded by the forest. Well kept, shower block clean but needs updating. Good play area for kids & open spacious pitches.

Sandringham house is a 30 minute walk away. The grounds & stunning interior of the church are free to visit and were well maintained with lots of interest.

The house at £20 per person to visit around 6 rooms was very expensive! Hunstanton is easy to visit on the bus & the site had lots of info on buses, walking and cycling routes.

Chip van (5 scores on doors) visits 3x a week, take a orders & gives a time to collect. Was delicious!

 Absolutely brilliant site with very scenic surroundings. Direct path to visit Sandringham House if this is your thing. We came here for the fantastic cycle routes principally and will visit again.

From the site you can travel to many wonderful days out including Norfolk Lavender and Cromer Pier and town. The site is well managed and friendly staff are there to help with anything you need.

The site is visited in the week by two different food vans, a Fish and Chips one and a Wood Fired Pizza van They both play a horn at tea time to signal their arrival. Handy if you don't fancy cooking and seem very popular.

Toilets and showers super clean and well kept. We stayed at the top of the site, a bit of a hill if you have to consider this.

The wifi is absolutely awful and the site has teamed with AirAngel who charge for each person in the caravan who use wifi. This was the only downside of the site and for a family of four, this would be very expensive. We used our phones, tethered.

A very quiet site surrounded by beautiful trees, we really enjoyed the setting and peace and quiet.

 On approach to the site one person goes to reception and is given a site map and two wristbands. Once you have chosen your pitch you return to reception, are given a fob for opening the barrier and you pay your campsite fees. There is hand sanitizer outside of reception.

Most of the pitches have a slight slope and you may need chocks. All of the grass pitches appeared to be on a slope.

The children’s park was closed due to coronavirus.

There are two toilet/shower blocks. To use them during these unusual times you place your wristband on one of two hooks outside the blocks and collect it on your way out. If the two hooks already have wristbands on them then you will have to wait in a socially distanced queue outside. This works well except when those leaving the blocks forget to take their wristbands. Outside of the toilets/showers, and wash up area there are hand sanitizers available.

There are a further three water points with CDPs. There were no hand sanitizers available at these points when we were there.

The hard standings were of a good size and the EHUs had two TV aerial points on them, which is good as the signal was not good from the caravan aerial. Mobile ‘phone signal was not good.

During high season a fish and chip van appears three time a week and a pizza van twice a week. Both accept contactless payments and both are very good. The fish and chip van ran out of fish one night so it may be a good idea to order early.

The nearby area is good to visit. There are a number of walks from the site into the Sandringham Estate. There are also a number of coastal attractions close by but you may need to time your visits carefully as the roads can become very crowded during the day.

There is a box near the exit barrier to deposit your key fob and wristbands on departure.

 Very warm welcome when we arrived, lots of useful local information available in and around reception. We were able to choose from the available pitches and we were very happy with our choice, as you’d expect from a club site, everything was well maintained, clean and efficiently run, there is a tv aerial booster on each hookup post, you will need your own co-ax cable, these can be bought from reception. WiFi is available for a charge. Everything has been thought of, washup room, laundry, motorhome freshwater fill, waste water dump point, recycling point etc, etc, the showers, toilets and washrooms are all immaculate. The shop is well stocked and staff friendly and helpful.

A fish and chip van arrives Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings just before 6, give your order when it arrives and you will be given a number and told when to come back and collect it. There is a social club which you can walk to through the forest.

Take some insect repellent as we got quite a few nasty bites in the forest, it’s wonderful for dog walking and you can walk through to Sandringham House and gardens but you cannot take dogs into the royal park, we were able to walk to the church though.

We caught a bus from right outside the site into Kings Lynn, we were able to take our 2 dogs in the bus which was a bonus, we found all the usual high street shops and it seems there is a market there on Saturdays. There are lots of other places you can get to on the bus service eg Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The-Sea, Cromer etc etc. Would definitely visit this site again.

Reviewer: Iwalani 163 reviews from this member

 As other reviews have said, this site is in very pleasant wooded surroundings, with access to woodland walks from several points around the site.

It's divided into three named areas, Lynnwood to the right of the entrance, Glucksberg to the left and Knights Rise, where the playground is, the furthest away from the entrance.

The pitches are mostly hardstanding and a good size but there were variations in both size and shape - our pitch was wider than it was deep, so it's a pity you can't pitch sideways like you can in many sites abroad! Despite looking level our pitch (no. 11) turned out to have quite a slope, so not only did we need levelling blocks, but also an extension pipe to the waste water container.

There are two shower blocks. We used the smaller of the two, which had the typical C&MC layout and cleanliness. However it was looking a bit tired. The 2 washing-up sinks were outside, but under cover, making it a bit chilly in adverse weather.

Reception is friendly and there is a range of food available, including milk, and newspapers can be ordered. A fish and chip van and an ice cream van visit the site, although we didn't use either.

If, like us, you're impervious to the attractions of royal palaces there are plenty of other things to do. King's Lynn makes an interesting day out, and on Saturdays has a small but very tempting 'foodie' market. There are two RSPB reserves, at Titchwell and Snettisham, and the Rose and Crown at Snettisham does excellent food.

 A beautiful, well laid out site within the forest of the Sandringham Estate. Being under trees is a big phobia of mine but I didn't have to worry as it was easy to find a pitch that didn't have overhanging trees. The dog walks from the site are tremendous with loads of different directions to choose from. We pitched on the top level of the site and were very happy there. The visiting chippy was amazing, best I've had in a long while. The site was nearly full when we were there and there was never a queue for the showers which were immaculately clean. They also closed them in the afternoon for cleaning, a great idea: why do so many sites close them just when us late risers want to clean ourselves?

Reviewer: Sonygeezer 15 reviews from this member

 It is a nice site but the wife and I just did not like it, most pitches are small and all seem close together.

Too many speed humps around the site for my liking and the site is in the middle of nowhere yes there is a bus stop outside the gate which helps.

The fish and chip van seemed overpriced and the chips were not very good.

All in all we will not be returning, maybe it just didn't suite us I just can't put my finger on it.

Reviewer: Babstreefern 27 reviews from this member

 Never been to King's Lynn, so decided to stay at this marvelous site. Its large, but there is plenty of space, so you don't feel cramped. There are 2 toilet blocks, although the one near to Reception has a separate disabled toilet, the other block in the middle doesn't. They are kept spotless. They empty the bins (there are numerous about the site) regularly.

Only negative bits, and I don't know if its this time of year, there are lots and lots of midges flying about. Also, very poor tv coverage (obviously not site's fault, but just mentioned it), and overall, there are only 5 sinks for washing up pots, could do with more.

The reception crew are really, really helpful and everyone has a smile. We arrived with a flat tyre to the car, so, straight away, they told us where the nearest place is. ATS (discount for Caravan Club members).

Put N/A for children, as we didn't bring any:)

Reviewer: Uncle Festa 15 reviews from this member

 This was our first time to Sandringham CC, but it certainly won't be our last. We arrived in freezing conditions in January and the site was largely empty, with the top section of the site closed.

With plenty of room available we were soon set up on a lovely large pitch. That said, we didn't see too many small pitches and most would easily accommodate our large twin axel.

Most of the pitches were sloping and all the vans we saw had levelling blocks or ramps. We just used 2 ramps on one side of the 'van, but we still had a slight slope, so take plenty of blocks for some of the pitches.

The toilet/shower block was spotlessly clean, with decent cleaning times between 10:45 and 12:00 when the toilet block was closed. The other block was closed for the Winter so I'm not sure of the arrangements when the one left was closed for cleaning?

Any significant shops are some distance away, with a Co Op in Dersingham and an Asda in nearby Kings Lynn, both approx. 4 miles away. Pubs and restaurants are numerous, but again, be prepared for a drive to find any. We found a gorgeous pub in Snettisham, The Rose and Crown, which has been pub of the year numerous times. The food was excellent and not too pricey.

The obvious attraction is Sandringham House which is a 1. 5 mile walk through the woods, or a quick 5 min drive in the car.

We love this site and will definitely return.
