 This is our favourite Caravan site, David and Lorna are very friendly and are always there if you need anything and they always make time for a chat.

The CL Site is kept beautifully and so are all of the fantastic facilities they have.

The Toilets and Showers are spotless, in the Hut there is a Washing Machine, large Fridge Freezer where you can purchase Milk, Cake, Chocolates, Bread, Ready cooked Meals, Ice Cubes, Eggs laid by their own Chickens and much more all at very reasonable prices. Also in the Hut is a Sink, microwave and a Sofa where you can relax and read a book or look through all the tourist destinations around the area.

The pitches depending on how you set up your Caravan or Motorhome might need a small adjustment to level up. Each Pitch has EHU, Water Point and you can run your grey water into the hedge.

There is a Chemical Waste Point that is easily accessible and kept very clean.

Access to the site is very easy from the road, just take it nice and slow as it is a Dog Friendly Site.

Fakenham is a 5 minute drive where there are many Supermarkets and Takeaways, we go to The Crown on a Sunday as it is Dog Friendly and they do a Carvery which is very nice and they also offer a Carvery for you Dog.

Barleywood also have a Shepherd's Hut, Pod and a Cottage available for Holiday Lets that are also very popular.

The CL Site is very popular and gets booked up quite quickly as they have a lot of return customers.

 What a fabulous CL. The facilities and everything about the site is of a very high standard being extremely well kept and spotlessly clean and excellent value for money.

The outlook is lovely and very peaceful with lots of birds and wildlife around.

Lorna and David are the perfect hosts and very helpful and sociable.

The lane outside the site is very quiet and perfect for walking the dogs.

We would definitely give the site 10 out of 10 and we will definitely return if we can get in.

 Lovely peaceful site, spacious pitches and fully serviced as the grey waste just goes onto the hedge.

Two very clean full bathrooms and an information room with home made goods, rhubarb crumble was yummy!

Nothing to dislike about this site, look forward to returning.

 This was our third stay here at this wonderful CL, the entrance to the site is very easy to navigate plenty of room either side of our van.

This is a grass pitch site, and to say how much use the site has had this year the grass was in really good condition.

All the pitches are mainly level with a small amount of adjustment needed to get the Caravan level. On each pitch is Electric Hook Up, Fresh water Connection and you can run your Grey Waste Water in to the hedge bottoms if you have waste pipe long enough.

The Elsan point is very convenient and is located within easy reach of the pitches.

There is a Toilet and Shower Block consisting of 2 Toilets and 2 Showers which are kept immaculately clean, Showers are 20p per minute. We did not use the Shower facilities as we use our Caravan Shower.

There is an Information Room, which has all the usual leaflets of what is in and around the area. There is also a large fridge and a large Freezer from these you can purchase Home Made Victoria Sponge Cakes, Milk, all sorts of Chocolates, Fresh Eggs laid by the owners Hens, as well as other goodies.

There is also a Washing Machine and Tumble Dryer that can be used by Campers staying on the site 2 each. There is also a comfy settee and TV that is free to watch as well as books etc.

There is WiFi on the site if needed, the TV signal isn't great but we took our Fire Stick and got a very good signal so was able to watch Netflix, Prime, YouTube etc with no issues or freezing.

The owners David and Lorna are just genuinely friendly and always make time out of their busy schedule to have a chat and make sure all is ok.

We have booked for next year as this site gets booked up pretty early and most are repeat customers and you can see why.

 Just had a brilliant 10 night stay at Barleywod CL. On arrival to the site the entrance is very easy to navigate, as when you turn off the main road on to the lane it is just like one continuous curve into through the main gate.

Once you are through the main gate there is plenty of room to manoeuvre, when we arrived there was a big notice board with our name and what pitch number we had been allocated.

The pitches are all grass and fairly level needing minor adjustment to get the Caravan level. Each Pitch is huge loads of room between each Caravan and the pitches are clearly marked. Each pitch has EHU, Water and Grey Waste Drain, but everyone was just connecting a long hose to the grey waste to keep the Trees and Shrubs watered in the hot weather.

Once we had got set up Lorna and David the CL owners came to welcome us and give us a tour of the site and its facilities. There are 2 Toilets and Showers that are kept very clean, the info room has a Washing Machine and Tumble Dryer that people staying on the CL can use.

Also in theInfo Room are 2 Freezers where you can buy Cake which is normally half a Victoria Sponge Cake 5, Crumbles, Ice Creams, Ice Cubes, Milk, etc etc. They also have their own free range Hens where you can also get your eggs 6 for 150 and you can tell they are Free Range as the Yolks are a Darker Yellow.

There is also bottled Beer you can purchase too, inside the info room there is a Sofa and a Television along with books and DVD's.

If you need to do any washing its 2 a wash but make sure you have washing Powder, Gel or Tabs, there is a big Clothes Airer to hang your washing out if you don't want to use the Tumble Dryer. There is an Elsan point that is kept very clean too,

The owners are very friendly and make time to chat or if there is anything you need then they are more than willing to help.

There is a Dog walk off site which is down the country lane running along the side of the CL which is also shaded, great for when it gets too hot.

Almost forgot on each pitch there is a Picnic Table with an Umbrella which I think is a nice touch. You can see why this CL gets booked up really quick and they have a lot of repeat customers.

The pitch fees are 18 Per Night but during winter there is a 3 per night supplement for the Electricity which is understandable and very Fair. I have no problem recommending Barleywood CL it is a real Gem the owners take a lot of pride in its appearance, if you don't fancy bringing your Caravan there is a Shepherds Hut to Hire with its own Jacuzzi and a POD you can hire Too.

 What a fantastic Cl site, Lorna and David are really nice and made us feel very welcome. The Caravan site is beautiful and well maintained, the showers and toilets are very clean although we didn't use the showers on site.

The information room is well stocked if you fancy Cake or a Crumble as well as other goodies including Beer and fresh eggs from their hens.

There is plenty of space between each of the pitches and each pitch has EHU, Water and a drain, there is also a night light attached to a post on the pitches.

Arrival time is from Noon onwards and if for some reason no one is about there is a notice board outside the information room with your name and pitch number.

Lorna gave us a tour of the site and informed us about all the facilities and where we could walk the dog and some of the local places to visit.

This place is always booked up and you can see why at the moment they are taking bookings for 2025. Pitch fees are 18 and at the time of booking you pay a 25 deposit, to book a pitch on this wonderful site you do have to be a member of the Caravan and Motorhome Club.

I would highly recommend this CL site, we have already booked 3 return visits.

 Beautiful site, toilet and shower room very clean, couldn't fault it.

Area is good for wild life, walks, and beaches.

Only problem TV reception poor, glad we had some CD.

Thanks Bern & Angie,
