 We arrived at Waveney River Centre on their first opening day after COVID-19 closures.

The staff were lovely and polite and also organised and knew what they were doing.

The showers and toilets were regularly cleaned. The restaurant was well organised with separate entrance and exit doors.

We hired canoes and also a boat for the afternoon which was lovely.

The view over the river was nice and our friends hired some Yurts which were nice and cosy with a little fire.

Will definitely come back

 Fantastic place, all the staff more than helpful, everything so clean.

Great selection of things to do.

It was so good we have booked up to go again next year with other members of the family

Thanks to the crew.

 We stayed in 3 of the pods and they were fabulous.

Clean, dry and lovely and warm.

Quiet location and a perfect spot for the children as the play area was just outside.

Swimming pool and shower block were all really clean.

We will definitely be back we loved it.

 Good facilities.

Everything clean and tidy. Well stocked shop.

Reception staff helpful.

Always lots going on as site is next to the river.

Worth taking the foot ferry over the river and walking to Oulton Broad

 Stayed on Kingfisher pitch which was good size & views of marina, individual clean shower /toilet & basin unit with keypad lock for entry.

Friendly staff, loved free use of swimming pool & jacuzzi.

We took our own kayak & Sup & was great to use their slipway, you can also rent them there if you want.

We also hired boat for half day which was fun.

Will definitely be using this site again.

Dislikes. Nothing 10/10

 Stayed on this site with my daughter.

We hadn't been camping for years but had a go and absolutely loved the site, beautiful location and facilities were very clean with friendly staff.

The situation allowed us to drive to various locations which were all within a reasonable distance.

Made a trip to Africa Zoo which was brilliant and to a stately home amongst other places.

Contrasting places to see and things to do which made such an interesting stay.

The site is spacious enough to have privacy or join in.

 This really is a lovely site!

Just returned after a 2 night stay. We were 2 couples in 2 tents and had pitches 4 & 5 on 'Coot', right by the water front. Huge pitches on 'Coot' to accommodate the largest of tents.

The grass pitches, I think, must have taken a battering this summer as grass was fairly scarce, but due to the size of the pitch we were able to pitch on the grassiest part. Just gorgeous to wake with the sun rising over the trees in the distance and casting amazing reflections on the water.

Great individual showers, each with loo and basin. Didn't use the pool but it did look lovely. Well stocked shop and pub was nice too. Will definitely return. Next time will try a yurt, they looked brilliant.

 We have just returned from a long weekend camping and couldn't fault this site. The pitches had a perfect view over the marina.

The on site pub served really nice food and the staff in the pub and on reception were so friendly and helpful (even when one family decided they didn't want to pay for their meal and were shockingly rude to staff. Staff handled them really well, not sure I could have kept my cool with such nasty people).

You can hire boats there too, which we did, the instructions were excellent and even though we're not 'boaty' people, we thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon on the water.

The centre also has a lovely indoor heated pool and Jacuzzi. What more could you wish for!

All in all, a spotless site and we will be going back. Thank you Waveney River Centre for an amazing long weekend :)

Reviewer: Strider212 2 reviews from this member

 Just a weekend away visit, the directions given on the website are very good, it says not to trust a sat nav so I didn't even use one.

We visited the weekend after the beast from the East storm, the snow was gone but the roads were wet (Very dirty van), and the roads are very narrow and pretty much single track (With passing places). On the way the road was dotted with some large potholes, but on the way back they had been filled by the local council :-).

So on to the site itself.

Fist impression was it was fairly small, we were on the king fisher pitches, which are fully serviced, make sure you have a suitable length of water pipe as I turned up with a standard off the shelf water kit and found it about 4 meters too short and the on site shop did not seem to stock water connectors or drainage pipe etc, the view was wonderful, looking out from an elevated position down to the river and marina.

As it was very early in the season there were not many visitors on the other pitches lower down toward the marina, even when the site is full I would imagine the view would still be good. Again as it was quiet we had the indoor swimming pool to ourselves which was clean and warm, with changing rooms and showers.

Only one of the toilet blocks was open at the time of our visit, but I would imagine that they are all usable in high season.

They were clean and warm, each with a toilet and sink, the doors were code locked, so if your anything like me write it down as by the time I had walked the whole 1 minute distance I had forgotten it!

The staff were friendly and the shop on site was very useful as we run out of teabags !.

The Waveney Inn was nice, a basic menu, fish and chips, burgers, pasta etc and what ever was on the special board such a steaks, but the portion sizes were very good and it was very well presented and tasty. The staff were great and dogs are welcome as well.

All in all a very relaxed location and we will certainly visit again

 A lovely site and not too expensive for what is on offer - free swimming included in the price and we had the pool to ourselves, there is also a Jacuzzi which was a first for us.

There is a shop which sells most things, including wine but not spirits, so buy these at Morrisons near the main road at the edge of Beccles.

We had a meal in the pub, but it was only average.

The ferry is not running at this time of year; we were taken across the river in a day boat. There is no landing stage on the far side of the river, just a muddy bank. Coming back the tide had gone out and we had to access the boat by a foot wide plank at a 45 degree angle. OH had to carry the dog, don't know how he did it, and both OH and the boatman had to hang onto my hands. So would suggest not using it in the winter.

The road to the site is a nightmare, and muddy, your car and caravan will get filthy.

Don't let any of the above put you off, it really is lovely.
