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.

This review is for West Runton

we have stayed at the site many times and enjoyed our stay as usual. The site is always clean and the staff always friendly. However, there was an issue with one of the facility blocks and this was closed on several occasions which caused some inconvenience (This has been an issue on previous visits). I also think that there should be additional laundry facilities as I don't think that the current facilities are sufficient for the site.

If you have a family and are carrying all the things you take to the beach, it is not a short walk. However, only a short drive and costs �2.50 to park all day .

This site does lack a little in the facilities compared to other sites.

This review is for West Runton

This site does lack a little in the facilities compared to other sites. Shower block as mould growing behind shower curtains, depending on the times you use shower block it can look grubby. My biggest issue is the attitude of site staff by far the worst of any site I have stayed. I felt unwelcome, and I felt as if the staff were doing me a favour by letting us stay. Being told what I should or shouldn't buy children in the shop I believe is over stepping the mark. Even though these sweets are on sale in the shop. Sadly this isn't just my opionion, others during my stay had similar issues. I have made a complaint to customer services I hope others do like wise The area though Cromer and Sherringham is superb. Although the entry is awkward this is an ideal base for the area.
