After visiting White House Farm Campsite in Saxilby, Lincolnshire we decided to visit Norfolk on the way home. The weather forecast was not great but we wanted to give Archie some time on the beach. We looked online for campsites within walking distance to the beach but their prices seemed high considering it was the winter season. As a result we decided to book Kings Lynn Caravan and Camping Park instead.
Kings Lynn Caravan and Camping Park – First Impressions
Upon arriving at the campsite it was clear that this was quite a large site. It appears on the Camping and Caravanning Club site as a Listed Site, licensed by the local authority. The staff at reception were very helpful. They were happy to give lots of local information and showed us to our pitch. The grounds seemed very well maintained. The same could be said for the other facilities like the shower block. The showers are the type that only last 10 seconds each button press but that’s only a minor niggle. The block is heated and regularly cleaned.
There are also dedicated disabled facilities and a family shower room. As with most large campsites you will find a laundry room, motorhome service point and chemical toilet disposal point. Our pitch was a hardstanding with electric but they do also offer grass pitches with electric which might be more suited to those with tents. For those without their own touring unit there is also some choice in self catering accommodation. We noticed both holiday lodges and small camping pods.
Kings Lynn Caravan and Camping Park is dog friendly with a designated dog walking area. If you need wifi it’s available for an additional charge.
Kings Lynn Caravan and Camping Park – The surrounding area
There is a small shop on site selling some basics. It actually has a better stock than most club sites but there are also 24 hour supermarkets within 5 minutes drive. There is also a decent choice of local restaurants and takeaways for those not wanting to cook. The market town of Kings Lynn is about 10 minutes drive to the North. For those wanting to visit the coast it’s a slightly longer drive. The drive time to popular coastal locations is as follows:
- Heacham – 25 minutes
- Hunstanton – 30 minutes
- Wells-next-the-Sea – 50 minutes
- Sheringham – 65 minutes
- Cromer – 70 minutes
Depending on which part of Norfolk you are planning to visit, Kings Lynn Caravan and Camping Park might be on your shortlist. If it is then you will be guaranteed a warm welcome and facilities of a very high standard. If you would like to know more why not click here to visit their website.
