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 was our third time staying at West Runton, great site always clean and tidy, close to the beach, surrounding area great for dog walking. The approach to the site is a bit of a trial, quite a few potholes made worse after the rain. Could do with washing facilities in both of the amenity blocks. Some of the decor is looking a bit tired and the site could really do with WiFi, staying with two kids age 12 and 14 and no internet access got a little tiresome. However, can't wait to use the site next year.

Nice site but as stated an awful track to it.

This review is for West Runton

Nice site but as stated an awful track to it. We had booked and I am glad I print off the confirmation as they had no trace of my booking and were quite adamant that I only had an enquiry form printed. However once I had pointed out that the words "booking confirmed" was at the top they were more than helpful finding us a pitch. it was described as a ghost booking ! Spooky..cant fault the staff or the site itself just the track down. will definitely go again (if we don't ghost book before)as we have friends in West Runton. Someone needs to look at this booking as I got the feeling that I wasn't the first to arrive that week without a slot

Lovely location, beautiful walks and splendid facilities! Very peaceful and secluded.

This review is for West Runton

Lovely location, beautiful walks and splendid facilities! Very peaceful and secluded. The approach road was difficult when towing and did make you think twice about venturing further afield as it would mean having to use the approach track. Thus said, had it been a better experience on the whole, the track would be worth venturing down for another stay. However, we found the staff to be incredibly difficult to deal with, it was a very my way or the high way approach regardless of whether they were in the wrong! This has sadly put us off a return, which is a shame as its a fabulous location and it's in a beautiful part of the world.
