Reviewer: Woodie 1 review from this member

 Loved it. So much that we booked an extra 2 days camping & a night in a yurt allowing us to pack tent away over a full day.

We booked an extra large pitch {coot 3} bang on the inlet off the broads. Lovely view.

Friendly staff lovely hot showers nice pool laundry room. Only disappointments on site shop & pub meal.

Good day out is the out of africa zoo which is 40 mins away by car. Great day out.

Would go back as i believe there are big plans to improve in the pipeline

 Lovely area and the mix of homes - boats yurts caravans tents to name a few gives a lovely ambiance.

Quiet friendly site and laid back. Pool available and games room for kids, we hired a boat worth booking at same time as pitch as they were all out every day.

Room for improvement- showers are individual with sink and loo but they’re used all day so floors often dirty and no mops anywhere:( also on site shop half empty and sells random crap not stuff you need - wasted opportunity for site.

Recommend the pantry in wheatacre for local produce and bread and white lion pub food

Reviewer: AngieV 1 review from this member

 Excellent cleanliness and friendly staff. Waveney Inn staff seemed to be the exception and were rather 'remote' and did not extend the friendly approach of other staff.

Showers, toilets and site kept immaculate and availability of laundry was very useful. The reserve opposite was accessable by ferry and easy walking access to adjoining town about 2 miles away across the reserve. We took a small pilot boat to Beccles, slow but fun, would recommend this for a day.

Access along the lane was narrow, but with careful driving was no problem. On arrival reception was clearly marked but needs to show that there is turning space on entry for new arrivals.

Concerned that some new people arrived at 11am, instead of after 1pm, they said they had not been told of later arrival requirement. They hassled us to leave our pitch (we were ready but did not need this) but it was a bit stressful. Suggest this is clearly explained to new bookings.

Generally a good site, Kingfisher hard standing was excellent but would suggest they are all equipped with water and electrics - some are not and it is difficult to obtain water at toilet block when full. Facilities for waste were good and handy.

Shop was not very well equipped - could do with fresh bread and newspapers daily - limited for food but staff friendly.

 Beautifully located, friendly atmosphere. Quiet by 10ish - so don't come here to party late. Toilets and showers kept very keen. Lovely hot showers with 3 hooks and a seat for stuff.

We got the free ferry across the river and walked to Oulton Broads across the marshes, saw some interesting birds and even a little deer, took about an hour each way.

You can also hire a variety of boats. We took kayaks out for 3 hours.

There is a good Inn on site. Wouldn't rely on the shop for much.

Overall lovely site and would recommend

 No WiFi or reduction to price as facilities closed for covid, £118 for 4 nights. Therefore showers, WC and pool.

Narrow lanes on 4.5 mile approach.

Rather cramped pitches. No space for awning.

Reviewer: Camperdave23 1 review from this member

 I am 60 yrs old and a 1st time camper, on arrival I booked into reception which was covid safe.

The receptionist was friendly and very helpful, she told me that the pitch I had booked may be prone to flooding due to higher tides considering the season, she suggested an alternative pitch that turned out to be perfect.

The whole site had many hand sanitation points which were easy to locate and full of sanitizer.

All of the staff I came into contact with wore masks and were very friendly and helpful this made my stay all the more enjoyable and I felt confident that I was in safe hands and in the current situation this is paramount

I would highly recommend The waveney river centre to anyone they are also geared up for glamping, pods, campervans, chalets and apartments.

All in all a great family friendly site that accommodates for smaller parties too.

The Waveney inn, pub restaurant on site were able th cater for my allergies, nothing was to much trouble for the friendly and attentive staff.

Thankyou to everyone concerned.

 My first time camping in UK, am use to camping South Africa. Bathroom, Kitchen(where wash dishes) clean and tidy, . Think Lighting in Bathroom needs to be slightly brighter.

Launderette clean and tidy as well. Was very hand Was also nice having freezer for ice blocks.

Foot ferry across was enjoyable for £3 per person. Enjoyed the walk to Outlon Broad.

The menu at Restaurant did not have much selection shame did not have starters. For the price did not think it was worth it.

Shame you longer have bicycles for hire.

Enjoyed seeing the sunrise in the mornings with a cuppa coffee. Was nice seeing the ducks and swans enjoying the peace. And in the evenings the geese flying over for the night.

 Second visit to Waveney and absolutely loved it. Everything very clean and hand sanitizer everywhere. Nice indoor swimming pool too.

Food at the pub is good (we ate there every night) and staff very friendly.

The road going to the site is single track with passing area, no shops nearby, hence eating at the pub. (Plus we wanted to set up van for camping and leave it like that rather driving around).

Will book again.

Reviewer: NicF 1 review from this member

 This was our 1st camping trip & we all absolutely loved it! As soon as we got home we rebooked for a weekend in September.

The staff were always very helpful, on the phone to answer any questions we had prior to our visit & during our stay. The safety measures in place work well, no issue there.

The site is clean, on a beautiful setting, our children (aged 9 & 11) had fun playing in the play area having some freedom as the camp isn't too big for them to wonder around.

Looking forward to coming back in a couple of weeks time.
