Date of Visit: August 2017 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Nights stayed: 3 Travelling as:  Retired couple
Reviewer: Grandad Kenny 31 reviews from this member

 Just spent three nights on what is a very clean site. Pitches are grass and very slightly sloping but large enough for caravan, awning and car. Toilet block is very clean and there is only one shower and toilet, although nine of the twelve pitches are occupied I have not had to queue or seen a queue. Friendly staff at reception and working around the site and friendly static owners. Great beach for dog walking, Lowestoft and Southwold within easy reach. Heated outdoor pool and swing park on site and newspapers available at reception. When I tried to book online all pitches were full but a phone call secured pitch 7 which is on the end, other pitches have been empty during our stay. A lovely quiet site. 

Date of Visit: October 2016 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Freckles63 58 reviews from this member

 Our second visit to this site, first in 2012 at 16. 50, now in 2016 21. 00 includes ehu/ awning/ 1 car and if open use of their club/ pool.

Again very quiet as October although half term. The weather was gorgeous and warm/sunny, we arrived late on a Tuesday 8. 30pm but still had to pay for a full day and left the last day they were open for tourers Sunday 31st.

We visited Horsey beach for the seals and Happisburgh for the lighthouse.

We ate at Oddfellows, our favourite pub which is walking distance of the site.

We used the clubhouse to play darts and table tennis, we virtually had the place to ourselves.

We use this site as it's only 3 miles from where our son lives, we've tried a few others in the area but find this one the best for being able to walk/ run into Lowestoft and local amenities, the other sites all need a car to get to pub/shops.

There were at the most only 4 units on the 12 unit touring area and this reduced as the week went on, as I've said before the shower/ toilets are clean but only 1 shower in both mens and ladies is not enough! 

Date of Visit: August 2015 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: GMC1958 42 reviews from this member

 This was our third visit since 2013. The weather was against everyone with too much rain but, this is no fault of the site owners. Our visit was not as enjoyable as the previous two visits, why? lack of parental guidance! children riding scooters up and down the disabled access ramp to the toilet block at 0800 hours, shouting and laughing, not ideal if you are on pitch 12. Another elderly caravanner thought it appropriate to deposit his dogs poo bag in the bin inside the mens toilet, whatever next. We were then blessed with the motorhome visitor who insisted in slamming his doors numerous times through the evening. What happened to respect and decency. On this occasion we chose not to book for next year. The site was clean and well presented but still same issues with toilet block when site is full. 

Date of Visit: May 2015 Unit:  Motorhome
Reviewer: London Viv 17 reviews from this member

 Would agree with other reviews that this is a pleasant site, well kept and with good laundry facilities, a children's play area and its own bar/clubhouse which though greatly underused while we were there was very pleasnat with friendly staff. The only down point, as already mentioned in other reviews is that the scrupulously clean shower block for the tourers has two toilets and one shower in the ladies and if all 12 pitches had been occupied it would not have been adequate. We were lucky and it was less than half full. It is not far to walk to the bus stop for Lowestoft itself. We were charged 22 for one night plus electric.

Reviewer: Wsseaman 66 reviews from this member

 This site is hard to get on as there are only 12 touring pitches, and we would have stayed here a lot more times than we have! The site is very clean and tidy, mainly consisting of static caravans, with the touring area just on the right as you enter the site. It is very convinient for accessing the beach, literally around 300 yards down a small track. Some of the pitches have a water supply, which you share with your neighbour, and there is a modern looking toilet/shower block, chemical waste and fresh water points all located in this area. The pitches are mostly level and all grass, with small newly-planted laurel in between, which will give some privacy when established, but at present looks very open. There is a Morrisons, MacDonalds and other retail shops within a short walk, and it's about a leisurely 3/4 walk into Lowestoft via the beach. There is a small children's play area near Reception. The only fly in the ointment on this visit was that we were unable to put up our windbreak for our two dogs (and ourselves) to sit in, as their site rules state no windbreaks. We had used it on all our previous visits but when queried with Reception, were told it was a 'structure' and wasn't allowed, but they do allow awnings. We are at a loss as to what the difference is and were very disappointed. This will probably be a deciding factor as to whether we use this site again, certainly in the summer months whe it is warm enough to sit outside. 


Date of Visit: July 2014 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: GMC1958 42 reviews from this member

 Had another wonderful time at this site, we chose a good week as schools were still open, 19-26th July. During our week we only had three other units that were overnight transit stops during the week. The site is wonderfully clean and staff and static caravan users were polite and friendly. The club house provided good entertainment and allows dogs in on a lead. The issue with the toilet block is still the same, staff even acknowledged that it need looking into, I am 6ft tall and well built but the shower posed no problems. We have a Swift Challenger 580SE and had no problems negotiating the site. There are too many plus points for this site to be negative. Once again we booked for 2015 before we left. 

Date of Visit: August 2013 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Renny Painter 4 reviews from this member

 Just returned from a lovely holiday at this caravan park. We had 3 of the pitches for the 12 of us. The site was absolutely beautiful and the area excellent. Great for visiting so many different places. However if we had known before we placed our booking that there was only 1 small shower and 2 toilets in the ladies and only 1 shower and 1 toilet in the gents we possibly would have looked elsewhere. The showers were very claustrophobic and smaller than a caravan shower. The space in the block could have been put to much better use and more toilets and showers incorporated. Also we tow a twin axle caravan that is over 8 metres long and, along with other units, we found it extremely difficult to manoeuvre around the gravel and post area at the entrance to the site. One man in a motorhome took almost 30 minutes to negotiate this on returning to the site after a day out because a car was parked halfway on the road and the green on plot 11. As I said before there are lots of great things but the touring site leaves a lot to be desired.

Reviewer: GMC1958 42 reviews from this member

 This was our first visit to this site and how glad we are that we came. The touring area is small, up to 12 units on grass pitches with it's own toilet block. The area is beautifully landscaped and clean. The proximity to a lovely dog friendly beach was a great plus for us along with 4 dog friendly pubs within walking distance. The accessibility to all major road routes was good. The toilet block was clean and fresh, my only small negative remark is that 1 shower and 1 sit down loo are not enough for a minimum of 12 men, I did have to queue once or twice. This could be eased if staff were to allow access to the disabled facility especially if there are no registered disabled people on site. We enjoyed it so much that we have booked a week next summer before we left the site. The staff were always polite and helpful.

Reviewer: Hamletrabbit 5 reviews from this member

 Our first trip in our new (to us) 70's caravan with some friends. The touring area is small but very neat with good pitch sizes (plenty of space for our diddy 14 foot vans anyway)

The shower/toilet block is excellent, new and clean and very close to all the pitches. The outdoor pool was loved by our children, and even in the rain at 26 degrees the water was warm enough to make up for it.

The beach is a very short walk, predominantly stones but the children found enough sand to dig a big hole. Staff were friendly, shop is just milk/soft drinks/ local papers/ icecreams (unless there was another one that I missed. )

The small play area was lovely and the whole site was well looked after.

Overall, we were very impressed. 

Date of Visit: October 2012 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Freckles63 58 reviews from this member

 We stayed 3 nights at the beginning of the October half term, we paid 3 price nights for the price of 2 33. 00, although it was only the 2 of us the price included 4 people.

Due to the traffic diversion in force it wasn't that easy to find, when you do find the site you go to your allocated pitch first then to reception, who were very friendly and helpful.

Very clean warm facilities, 2 toilets 1 shower, adequate due to the low numbers at this time of year, although I would think it may be inadequate in high season, we used our own shower to begin with but by Wednesday afternoon we were there on our own so used their shower which was hot and powerful.

Mainly statics on site with a clubhouse and swimming pool of which we used neither due to the time of season, however a short stroll along the seafront path brought us to 'The Oddfellows' pub where we had a good meal.

We used this site as a base to visit our son who moved to Carlton Colville a few months ago and would use again without hesitation.
