Questions:-  (This review is from the point of view of motorhomers driving a Swift Kontiki 669 tag axle – 8.56m)

What are the pitches like?                

Grass.  Each pitch 10x8m.  Had to ask for the grass to be cut when opposite was being done

Is there water on each pitch?            

No  – but tap is fairly easily accessible.  The drain was blocked the day we arrived, unblocked but blocked again 2 days later…

What is the electric like?           

10A– good

Drainage?     

By the tap – see above

What’s the site access like?        

Good.  One way system is in operation on the park

What are the Sanitary facilities like?    

Toilets:                              When we arrived we were disgusted with the toilets – we’re convinced that the cleaners don’t work on Sundays (we arrived on Monday and the toilets were cleaned at about 4pm…)  Many seem to be leaking (just water, but a pool around the bottom of most toilets).

A bit better when they had been cleaned.  Plenty of cubicles

Toilet paper provided? Yes                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Showers:                          Yes.  Even Calv wouldn’t use the showers…

The ladies had an individual cubicle next to the toilets and then about 4 showers with a bench and hooks for clothes.

What other facilities are there?    

Bins, CWD (sluice) and washing up area

Laundry. (4 washers, 4 driers – £4.20 for a wash, £4.70 for a ‘super wash’)

Amusement arcade

Restaurant and bar

Indoor pool & heated outdoor pool

Very hit and miss.  More often than not there was none.

There is paid Wifi available on site.  From £3.99 for 1 device for 1 day.  I don’t know how good it was as I didn’t use it.

Reception are very efficient and welcoming

How much is it?     

We paid £16 per night including electric – however this was on an offer.  It was supposed to be £19 a night at this time of year

What’s the area like?            

The immediate area isn’t great – the beach at this end of town isn’t particularly nice.  There is a large Tesco and a large pub opposite the park – both within walking distance.

We cycled  towards Old Hunstanton, finding a nicer part of Hunstanton itself as we did.  The beach at Old Hunstanton is spectacular 🙂

More detail:

We liked:-

The wider area (but not the immediate area)

Having a laundry

The cycle to Old Hunstanton

The swimming pool, except that it wasn’t actually any good for swimming in…. (not properly anyway)

We didn’t like so much:-

The immediate area

The facilities

The number of statics and people living on-site

Whilst it wasn’t noisy, it wasn’t exactly a quiet site at night…

We hated:-

Nothing

Moving On:

We went to Stamford
