Enjoy coast and countryside from this popular north Norfolk site near Cromer.

You can get a feel for the beautiful and varied Norfolk coast and countryside from our Club campsite at West Runton.

Our pretty and spacious campsite commands a secluded location close to the quaint seaside village with which it shares its name. Trees surround this beautifully maintained site. Facilities include roomy showers, a parent and child room, laundry and washing up area and a lovely dog walk.

Just a short walk from the campsite brings you to the quaint fishing village of West Runton. Its sandy beach is perfect for sunbathing while the plentiful rock pools are waiting to be explored.

For more sandy beaches, piers and promenades Sheringham, Cromer (both within walking distance of the campsite) and Caister-on-Sea tick the boxes.

A mile south of West Runton, Beacon Hill is the highest point in Norfolk. Scale the dizzy height of 300ft and you’ll be rewarded with views over the countryside and coast.

For nature lovers Blakeney Point is a must. This mix of dune, marsh and shingle is home to seals and a variety of birds. Catch a ferry from Mortson Quay to see them. There are more animals to be seen at the Hillside Shire Horse Sanctuary and the Norfolk Shire Horse Centre close to the campsite.

Lovely walking....National Trust open walks from the site.Excellent cycling....

This review is for West Runton

Lovely walking....National Trust open walks from the site.Excellent cycling....very pretty countryside. The village of Itteringham is worth a visit and has a great 'community run shop/cafe' serving unusual but delicious cakes, local free range produce and super coffee. It is well worth supporting. The walks to the coast are pleasant and Sheringham's MO MUSEUM is a must. This museum is quite unique and relates the history of Sheringham's fishing families whilst housing fine lifeboats. The upper tower offers panoramic views of the town and coast especially the 88 tower wind farm. This part of the museum brings the visitor to the present time with clever information on the wind farm technology. Fun too for small children and a lift for those less able to use stairs.

Being a biker, this site is ideal for me.

This review is for West Runton

Being a biker, this site is ideal for me. Morning coffee in Cromer after a short bike ride mostly off road along a lovely track, then a bike ride up to Felbrigg Hall and back along lovely safe quiet roads. Only 10 miles to Holt along bike route 30 which is again very quiet roads then lunch in Holt. What could be better?! On a driving day I would go to Blickling Hall and spend a couple of hours in one of the largest and best National Trust book shops, a look round the Hall and a visit to the excellent cafe. Evenings can be spent walking on the lovely beach at East Runton or walking up on the hills overlooking the sea which is through a gate immediately from the site. If you don't fancy driving, �5.50p will get you a return bus trip in to Norwich. What more could you want? Staff very friendly and shower block spotlessly clean......enjoy!
