    Top site for beaches

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

Nice site with some great walks to the coast great beach at east runton some points I noticed people with dogs were letting their children walk them on site and they were not picking up their mess I am a dog owner and this reflects on all dog owners. Also as my pitch was next to one of the toilet blocks people were cutting through my pitch during the night to use the toilets . Overall would visit again maybe not during the main summer holidays.

First time camping in many years and first time as a newbie member.

This review is for West Runton

First time camping in many years and first time as a newbie member. This was a smashing site to start off with and one I will definitely return to. I holiday with just me, myself and I and I was made to feel most welcome - by the site, by the managers, and by everyone who stopped to chat (friendly bunch caravanners!) Great base to explore both coast and country and good cycle trails from the site and within 30 mins drive to suit both adrenaline junkies and free wheelers. Never had to wait for shower, loo or washing up station. Everything spotless, water always hot. The whole week was just what I needed.

I've stayed here many times and it never fails to impress.

This review is for West Runton

I've stayed here many times and it never fails to impress. The site staff are really friendly and helpful and it is impressive to see how often the facilities are checked. The only downside is the very poor quality fish & chips. Lordy it was horrible. Overcooked fish and scrappy chips. I was told that the normal proprietor is very poorly. I wish him well. In the meantime - be warned!!
