Reviewer: Mum with 2 boys 1 review from this member

Really can't fault this site. If you like clean, simple, small-scale and peaceful, this is the site for you. The site and facilities are really clean and everything is conveniently located. Washing up and water facilities are excellent, showers are hot and the toilets are clean. There's nothing particularly fancy - everything you need and nothing you don't - but everything works, is clean and straightforward. This is the second time I've visited with my two children and we've loved it both times. It's a short walk along a quiet road to the village play area and pub which has recently changed hands and does nice food. You can walk along the Broads, starting opposite the pub, spotting wildlife and windmills along the way. I found it a good location to get to the Broads, seaside towns like Cromer and Sheringham and other attractions.

The field where you pitch is flat and easy to get pegs in and the pitches are generously spaced. There's been a couple of horses in the field next door which my children like to say hi to and an easy-to-climb tree (over a pond) by the shower block so my children seem to find it easy to occupy themselves. A chilled place to stay and highly recommended.

We stayed at woodside farm for the first time with our grandchildren of 8 and 5 years old (their very first time camping). Greeted with a friendly smile and instructions on where everything was. Toilets/shower Block very clean and everywhere kept tidy. Had a great couple of days will be returning.

We had a lovely stay at Woodside, the campsite is brilliant, in a great location with great facilities.

The owners are lovely, and I couldn't have found a better spot for our annual camping trip.

Highly recommended, and will definitely return.

Our second visit to this gloriously peaceful and friendly campsite.

We were made to feel very welcome. Including our 2 large dogs and 4 year old granddaughter.

The site is beautifully kept, the showers and toilets are lovely and clean with plenty of hot water.

We love it, and will be back again

Reviewer: Chelbe 1 review from this member

As we arrived we were very welcomed and told exactly what to do and where to set up on a beautiful field with high hedges and very peaceful. We were very impressed with the facilities shower/toilets very nice with trees and bushes around them so they don't stand out. Washing up facilities were in a shed with a freezer to use for ice pack's (if needed for a small fee)leaflets about local area and a drinking water tap outside. They have electric and non electric pith's. 5 minuet walk out the campsite there is lovely little shop, playground and the pub was in the middle of a refurbishment but would be open for the summer and across the road are some of the Norfolk Broads you can wonder around look at the boats and windmills. We would definitely be going back.

A very peaceful country location 1/2 mile from Thurne's picturesque riverside marina where there is also a pub and village stores. The sunsets over the river were stunning and there were plenty of opportunities for star gazing. There are lots of quiet country roads for cycling which was perfect for us and we enjoyed Hickling Broad.

The site is in a large, mostly level field (very well kept) with plenty of space, surrounded by hedging. There is water tap, a washing up and information shed in the corner of the field. A short walk from the field leads to a single loo plus one shower room and loo each for men and women. Although the loo, sink and shower base were kept clean there was mildew around the windows, the disabled equipment was very dusty and the whole area was inhabited by well- established spiders and their multiple webs. The electric shower was hot and just about enough water to have a reasonable wash.

At 20 per night it was over priced for the standard of facilities offered and another 4 for electric made it quite expensive. All in all we enjoyed visiting this quiet part of Norfolk but would probably choose one of the two CL sites in Thurne next time.

What a find! A really first class little campsite at the end of this picturesque village. Julia and Andy (the owners) where both very friendly and helpful during booking, before arrival and during our stay, and have a great sense of humour.

This campsite was just what we were looking for with all the essential facilities but none of the commercial stuff!

The toilets, showers and washing up facilities were spotlessly clean and well stocked and there was plenty of hot water all day.

The pitches were large and well spaced with plenty of room for everyone without being on top of each other. The pitches are tidy and well kept and all the hedges were well trimmed too.

There was no long list of rules and regulations when we arrived, just a respect and trust that everyone will treat the campsite as they would their own home and this brought out the best in everyone, leaving all facilities in the state in which they found them. Great ethos.

Lots of lovely walks nearby, with well marked footpaths.

There is a good pub and a lovely little village shop selling unusual and reasonably priced gifts as well as a few essentials.

We'll definitely visit again. We loved it.

Thank you Julia and Andy

We felt that the site was excellent. It is very well maintained and the toilet block was very clean. The owners obviously take a lot of pride in Woodside. The location was also very good for us - a nice quiet holiday - yet Great Yarmouth was only 20 minutes away. Julia and Andy were incredibly helpful both prior to our visit and during our visit.

If you are looking for an all singing, all dancing site with a 40 cubicle shower block then this is not it. If you are looking for a nicely kept, clean and tidy quiet peaceful site then I would recommend Woodside. We will definitely come back.

We stayed here for two nights in August in VW Campervan - 2 adults and 2 kids.

Site is well kept large level field, surrounded by large hedges. It's in a rural location, which is part of its appeal, and although outside the village it's an easy walk down the quiet lane back to Thurne.

There is plenty of space on the site between pitches and on the field itself. When we stayed, it was only ourselves plus 3 other couples in tents, so was very quiet.

We had a hook-up, with no issues. As mentioned elsewhere there is one shower & toilet for each of gents and ladies, plus mixed/disabled toilet in the block - not an issue for us, but at busy times may be. There is a small shed in the corner of the field for washing up (with hot water) and also freezer for ice blocks.

Booking was easy and prompt replies to emails from the owners, who are very friendly too.

We enjoyed our brief stay and boys enjoyed the space and rural location - you don't need a kids playground to enjoy yourself! Fantastic night star-gazing too, as no light pollution.

Just came back from a 3 night stay with my husband and two children. Well kept pitches paid the extra for electric hookup and had no problems. There was only a few other campers on site so had no issues with waiting for toilets or showers, the water was fine and stayed at temp. Owners were very friendly and would not hesitate to stay there again lovely quite site
