A great site, in the middle of the countryside so no road noise, attached to a pub which does lovely food, we were in a big party and all the food came out promptly and everyone was pleased with their meals.

Only one shower in ladies and gents, 50p token from the bar gives you 7 minutes, just a shame that you still have to press a button every 30 seconds even when you've paid for the hot water. There were no queues when we were there but the site wasn't full, I could imagine that if it was 1 shower wouldn't be enough. The same with the washing up sink, there's only one of them. And tents can't have EHU only vans

Unfortunately there were mix ups with some of our bookings - we had booked two nights and on arrival were only booked in for one, fortunately it wasn't a problem but I wouldn't have been happy if we had turned up and they had only let us stay the one night when we had booked two. We couldn't quite understand why when there were other pitches available that people weren't spread out a bit more. There were another couple of issues in our group such as being accused of not paying when people had paid over the phone prior to arrival which was a shame as it really is a lovely site just seems a bit of a lack of organisation on the campsite which is strange because the pub runs like clockwork,

Despite the couple of issues I am sure we will be back as it is a lovely relaxing site

The Goat Inn is a perfect site, pub and restaurant rolled into one! We had our first camping trip here with friends and cannot fault it at all! Lovely big site, really clean toilets and shower, a fantastic enclosed playground for the children and plenty of space to pitch your tent and the kids have a run around - did not feel crowded despite every pitch being taken up! I only give a 9/10 for showers as there was only one shower in ladies and men's toilets which were constantly in use evening and morning so they could maybe do with investing in an extra shower block. Other than that a full 10/10!

The ladies who run the pub were so accommodating and helpful, the restaurant is fantastic and they even decorated our table for my 6 year old's birthday which she absolutely loved!

We will definitely be recommending this site to friends and family who camp and visit it again.

Had a fantastic time camping at the Goat Inn with Canoe Man - despite the weather.

With all the rain was very impressed the camp site didn't become boggy and could still drive our cars on, however plenty of hard standing if required.

Quiet site with plenty of space for ball games and kite flying. Easy access to river and well organised canoe trip.

We spent 5 nights here and ate in the pub twice - both times which were very good - on service, food and value, especially accommodating as there were 10 of us.

The availability of fire pits was most welcome and well used - great for cooking on and keeping us warm.

My 5 year old loved the playground and felt safe for him to play there.

Those that hired the tents weren't so impressed - lack of ground sheet and felt they had been pitched a while.

The facilities were always clean, only problem was 1 shower and it wasn't always working - really need to extend the shower facilities and wash basins (only 2).

Plenty of shops in nearby Cottershall (and a delightful tea room!)

Looking forward to our next visit.

Lovely relaxed site in a peaceful away-from-it-all location - only spoiled for us by night time noise! We pitched our tent as far as possible from the functions marquee after reading a review suggesting this could be noisy, this meant we were at the edge of the 'Independent' field, next to the field used by the 'Canoe man'. This proved to be a big mistake as the group staying there enjoyed a very loud BBQ - until around 1am (loud talking, laughing, swearing, singing etc) I asked them politely to be quieter at 11pm - but it made no difference! The site really needs to establish a firm policy on when 'quiet time' is.

Otherwise the site is family friendly, the play area in the pub garden is easily viewed from the whole site so its easy to keep an eye on children playing there (though kids need to be very tall to use the swings!).

The site is nicely broken up by banks of trees giving useful shade. The toilet and shower facilities are clean and good (showers - 50p tokens from pub), only one washing up sink and only one shower each for men/ladies - so might be a wait when busy.

No particularly local shops.

Pub serves good food - though service a bit slow in restaurant when busy.

Overall a lovely site and would recommend.

Just back from 10 days at this fantastic site - as a CL it only takes 5 Caravans (although the field opposite takes tents). New toilet and shower block has just been completed. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The Goat Inn is situated in the same grounds and the food is excellent. Although we didn't have any children there ourselves, the site and pub are child friendly and have a small playground for the children. It is a very peaceful location and is excellently positioned for visiting Norwich (c.12 miles), Great Yarmouth (c.30 miles), Lowestoft (c.35 miles) and the surrounding towns and villages - Aylsham, Cromer, Sherringham, North Walsham etc. Which are all within a 10 mile radius. Would highly recommend it.

Just had two nights at this lovely site. Only has 5 pitches but they are well spaced out and overlooks 7 acres of grass which is used for tents and ball games.

The site was quiet apart from Saturday night when there was a party in the marquee which is situated behind the toilet block so it was a bit noisy until around midnight.

The toilets are new but not really finished yet but they are kept clean although there are only two cubicles in both male and female toilets and one shower which could prove a problem if there were a lot of tents on site as well.

This is quite a remote site and the water is sourced from a well which due to the very dry weather recently was nearly empty and slow which again could cause a problem when the site is busy.

Overall I would recommend this site and will probably visit again.

This was our first trip with a motorhome, total newbies and it was great. The staff of the Goat are very friendly and helpful and gave us a very warm welcome (they are motorhomers) The food is very good and same goes for the beer, they have a cracking field area and very well maintained and even after the wettest November for years we still got in and out ok. You are parked on grass but it was hard. Will be going back again without a doubt !

A very nice pub used by RAF Coltishall pilots and ground crew (Douglas Bader and the like)during the war.There are photos of aircrew in the bar.My wife and I arrived too late for dinner,so we had a very nice pint of beer instead.The menu looked exciting.We stayed one night in our Motor Caravan which cost 10.All usual amenities are on site. The landlady and her family run this pub and campsite,and are very nice and pleasant and helpful.We shall return.
