Pitches

General

  • Friendly family-run site in the nature-rich Norfolk coast area
  • Three acres of grounds a mile from the seaside
  • Logs for sale and wifi available; three miles away from Hunstanton

Net yourself a nifty little niche in the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a trip to The Poplar's Campsite, a quiet family- and dog-friendly option.

The coastal position of this place, about a mile from said waters, certainly is key if you’re after a hol bounding around all the beaches in the area – of which there are many. Some of the most sought-after stretches of sand are at Thornham (five minutes’ drive) and Brancaster (10 minutes), plus a pub is close by on foot (10 minutes’ walk) for pints once you’re done with paddling.

A bus station is a short walk away too should you be touring the area by public transport, perhaps heading to the town of Hunstanton (10 minutes’ drive). When not travelling, lean back next to the campfire on the park’s three acres of land; logs are for sale on site to keep the blaze crackling and wifi’s available too so you can fiddle with your phone outdoors as long as you like.

Not that you’ll be wanting to spend much time on electronic devices during a stay here – the Norfolk coast has oodles to get stuck into, from birdwatching to boating. Forays on foot are also fab: hop it to Holme Dunes (10 minutes) for sandy strolls or saunter around Sandringham’s wooded paths (20 minutes).

Very clean loo & shower block24/10/2020

    Very clean loo & shower block

    Disliked: 

    The pitch we were allocated sloped in two directions; ie, both sloping down at the front (or back) and to one side. Consequently it proved very difficult to level the motor home.
    If the site and been anywhere near full I could have understood the necessity to have been allocated an unattractive pitch but it wasn’t: there were quite a lot of flatter, less angled sites

Friendly / helpful. Clean. On coastal bus route. Quiet.18/10/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomKaren C.Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Quiet location.
    Near main bus route along the coast.
    Helpful owners.
    Clean facilities (but see below).
    WiFi - included and available
    Good TV signal
    Great shower pressure
    Quiet

    Overall this site offered all we needed. I do think it was over-priced for the level of facilities on offer. We were fine - as the site was quiet during our visit and, in fairness, we were advised that it was shutting (due to water logging) after our visit.

    Site is in a good location - rural rather than beach side - with many beautiful villages / walks / Hunstanton in easy reach.

    It could be lovely - but does need a tidy up and some financial investment in facilities which, although very clean with great showers, were a little strange in their set up (and would be inadequate if site busy I think)

    Owners were helpful and we would thank them for a lovely stay and wish them every future success.

    Disliked: 

    Feel this site is overpriced for the facilities offered.
    I do think that the showers / toilets / washing-up would be inadequate if the site was any where near full
    The pot wash facility is one free standing sink (we didn't need to use it) so I can't comment further)
    Whilst there are 4 showers the set up (bit like metal lorry containers) does in-effect mean that only two could be used at any time (unless you are very friendly or liberal) as the drying / changing area is communal.
    Very dark (it was October!) near toilets / showers
    Site would benefit form a tidy up (old car, old caravan, old static caravan etc) this is aesthetic maybe - but just brings the overall impression down.

Very very basic16/10/2020

  • Non-electric grass touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Great location, bus stop just outside, beach a short ride away

    Disliked: 

    Facilities need some work, no paving and very wet ground means the showers and toilet were very muddy, because of layout it was almost impossible not to have to tread on muddy floors in bare feet, no benches/chair in there meant you had to put your stuff in it too. Nothing left for you to even clean up/mop after yourself.

    I accept it was a grass pitch but the ground was very boggy. One van got completely stuck and we only just got off. If they are going to take bookings in the autumn they need to make sure you can get to your pitch!

    No elsan point you just have to empty your toilet tank to a tank in the ground the hole you open up is quite large and it clearly was on the verge of needing emptying when we were there 🤢 no water to clean out.

Local attractions

The bird is the word here – avian creatures aplenty flock to the Norfolk coast, including to Holme (five minutes’ drive) and Snettisham (20 minutes). An RSPB reserve full of marshlands, reedbeds and freshwater lagoons that lure in avocets, marsh harriers and pink-footed geese is in Titchwell Marsh (10 minutes) too.

While you're there, plan wanders along the wide beach looking out across The Wash, another protected part of Norfolk, as well. More into watersports than walking? Hunstanton has a variety of pursuits to pick from, including paddleboarding and windsurfing (plus it’s also a prime place for pottering along the red and white cliffs if you haven't had enough of roams). Rainbow Park is round here too for fans of fairgrounds, while its next-door neighbour, the Sea Life Sanctuary, is a must-visit for seeing the seals, penguins and otters.

Fancy activities that are more aristocratic in theme? Check out the queen’s gaff, Sandringham (20 minutes), or mosey to manor homes like Narborough Hall (40 minutes) and the 12th-century Castle Rising ruins (25 minutes).

Must see

  • Sandringham (9.2 miles)
  • Houghton Hall (10.3 miles)
  • Holkham Hall (10.9 miles)
