  • Quiet caravan park five minutes’ walk to Caister-on-Sea Beach, Norfolk
  • SEA LIFE Great Yarmouth and Ormesby Broad both 10 minutes’ drive
  • Hardstanding pitches with electric hook-ups; shops 10 minutes’ drive
Family-run specifically for families, Norfolk’s Grasmere Caravan Park is a quiet grassy enclave only 10 minutes’ drive – but light years in vibe – from the razzmatazz of east-coast resorts like Great Yarmouth. In fact, the site is 10 minutes’ drive from a lot of places, including Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens, Joyland amusement park and Ormesby Broad, so you and the kids will never be short of something to do and see. And the list goes on, for there are several pubs, restaurants, supermarkets and specialist food shops within 10 minutes by car too, making life on site nice and easy for you. Luckily for excited kids, the beach at Caister-on-Sea is closer still, being five minutes’ stroll away from your tourer pitch, so they can soon be digging castles on the sand. Allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, the pitches are generally hard, well drained and laid with stone or granite chips. Each has its own service point with a water tap, foul water drain and electric hook-up. Please note dogs are not permitted. So you can relax knowing that your worldly goods are safe, access to the site is via a remote-controlled barrier for caravans, which is operated by staff only.

Electric grass and gravel touring pitch

Liked: I have been visiting Grasmere for many years with family and as a child, but this is the first time I've visited in my own touring caravan. We were welcomed by a friendly Liz who let us onto the site earlier than the arrival time without question. We could choose from any of the available pitches. All serviced pitches too, the first we had stayed on as new caravanners in fact. The pitch we chose was level so no need for blocks. Great private shower and toilet cubicles on site with constant hot water. I would definately recommend this family run site and we will definately be visiting again.

Disliked: Not a dislike as such, but there was alot of cut grass around the site. This didn't detract from our stay though.

Electric grass and gravel touring pitch

Liked: Location was good and it was cheap. I should have questioned the price but the photos and reviews prior to booking looked great.

Disliked: Absolutely filthy facilties, everywhere was ran down with no maintenance done. We stayed for a week but I never saw a cleaner. The in ground dirt in the showers and toilets are clearly from months of no cleaning or just quickly running a cloth or mop around. Lots of the hookup for water and electricity were broken. The bin area looked like a fly tipping zone.
