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.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

This review is for West Runton

0ne dog frightened a child and took her ball heated exchange between owner and parent we have used this site since the 1970s when we camped with our young children, and now find is too crowded in spite of reasonable spacing. we are giving it a miss this year too many dog owners ignore the rules we don't all love their animals running lose. So sad this has always been our favourite site

This site has so many happy memories from my childhood holidays in the 80's.

This review is for West Runton

This site has so many happy memories from my childhood holidays in the 80's. Returning now with my family it is still a well looked after site with great facilities. My only negatives are the amount of hardstanding areas and only two jumbo with electric pitches both next to the play area. Will we go back? Yes but please more JWE pitches.

This review is for West Runton

The access is my only complaint but seeing as it has had the same bad reviews since 2010 I cannot see leaving a review will make any difference what so ever, I took my car and caravan which I look after with pride down a lane with 14 pot holes more than 4 inches deep and 2 foot in diameter and plenty of smaller ones and I have photos to prove this in case of any damage incurred and I had to claim ,the rest of the site was up to the usual very good cacc standards and this is why I am a member but will never visit this site again until I can drive down without being rocked all over the place
