Nestled in the gorgeous surroundings of the Royal Estate, Sandringham Camping and Caravanning Club Site, has struck gold in the East of England Tourist Board Awards for the best Caravan Holiday Park of the of the Year.

This 275 - pitch camp site provides a harmonious setting where tourism and the environment work hand-in-hand. Situated in the grounds of the Royal Estate, it’s right at the heart of one of Norfolk’s best loved tourist attractions. With plenty of walks and cycle routes directly from the site and seal watching opportunities from The Wash, it really does offer something for everyone.

The site itself supports and encourages the area’s local wildlife, which is flourishing. Campers are treated to the rare colony of white rabbits which have made the site their home. And, through sympathetic planting and nesting areas, the site has become a paradise for a whole host of birds including Barn and Tawny Owls.

The site was refurbished in 2005 using local materials and craftspeople, It now provides better infrastructure and facilities and incorporates a family room and special needs facility.

As a regional category winner the site will go through to the National Excellence in England 2006 Awards run by VisitBritain in April 2006.

Trevor Woodward, Chairman of the Sites Committee for The Camping and Caravanning Club told us: “This is a fantastic achievement. The Club has invested in the site and in the region and is very proud to have won such a prestigious award. Sandringham Camping and Caravanning Club Site is a beautiful, friendly site; the award is well deserved by the dedicated Holiday Site Managers and staff who run it.

“We have around 100 Club Sites situated in some of the most beautiful parts of the country offering award-winning accommodation. This latest award illustrates the Club’s on-going policy of providing and maintaining sites to the highest possible standards, resulting in quality award winning accommodation for both members and non-members.”

To win what is considered to be the ‘Oscar’ for Tourism, The Camping and Caravanning Club’s Site demonstrated service excellence, outstanding professionalism and commitment to tourism in the East or England.
