Alan Rogers Review

Set in the Norfolk Broads adjacent to the River Waveney, this site has something for everybody but will particularly suit those interested in boating. There are 14 mainly level, grass touring pitches all with 16A electric hook-up, plus 35 large tent pitches, many with electricity. The facilities are of the highest standard and include an indoor swimming pool complex with a café. There is a recently refurbished pub that serves local Adnams ales and locally sourced food. A games arcade for children (in the pub), a wildlife garden and an adventure play area will keep children busy. There is boat hire available and launching facilities for own boats. A foot ferry service is available across to the marshes, offering miles of rambling and wildlife watching in the wetlands.

The local area is an ideal base for visiting the local town of Beccles, as well as Norwich, Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft. Although the site has a great variety of facilities, it has retained a tranquil atmosphere and will suit those looking for peace and quiet as well as families wanting a more active holiday. The site is surrounded by marshes, nature reserves and abundant wildlife.


Two very clean toilet blocks (both key access), one superbly fitted with 9 private rooms (WC, shower sink, hairdryer). Well equipped facilities for disabled visitors and families. A second smaller block has toilets and washbasins. Laundry facilities. Fully stocked shop. Pub serving food. Indoor heated swimming pool, café with pool viewing area and outside decking. Play area. Evening entertainment. Fishing allowed in open season (charged). Boat hire. WiFi. Luxury holiday lodges and pods to rent.
