  • Adults-only site with a fishing lake outside Hillington, in Norfolk
  • Sandringham Estate five minutes’ drive; Blakeney Point 45 minutes
  • On-site bar open on weekends; heated shower blocks; dogs welcome
Have fishing rod, will travel. If your dream holiday involves sitting on the banks of a peaceful lake while casting a line, Gatton Waters Caravan Park might well be the place for you. Sitting a five-minute drive from the Norfolk village of Hillington, this adults-only site spreading over 24 acres has its own coarse-fishing lake, stocked with carp, roach, rudd, perch, bream and tench. It also has a fully-stocked bar open on weekends. While you indulge your favourite activity, the rest of your family (and the dog, who is a welcome guest here) might prefer to explore the surrounding woodlands, which is inhabited by hares and other wildlife. Speaking of wildlife, the lake itself attracts plenty of winged creatures; however, if you’re into birdwatching, you should take the half-hour drive to Scolt Head Island National Nature Reserve, an area of salt marshes and sand dunes populated by terns, plovers and wintering geese. Some might prefer a day at the seaside, maybe at sandy Brancaster Beach (25 minutes) or Holkham Beach (40 minutes), or at Blakeney Point (45 minutes), which is known for its seal colony. Want to catch a spectacular Norfolk sunset? Head to Snettisham Beach (20 minutes), then get back to the site for an evening barbecue (stopping for provisions in Hillington, which has a fully stocked convenience store and a petrol station). Not in the mood for cooking? There are plenty of pubs serving locally sourced food and ales in the nearby villages. Amenities at the caravan park include ladies’ and gents’ heated shower and toilet blocks, and a washing-up area, as well as electric hook-up, chemical disposal, wifi and charging and recycling facilities.

Electric optional grass touring pitch

Liked: One of the best adult only caravan sites we have visited, its a very quite and peaceful site with no road noises, with water points around the site so not to far to fill the water barrel, there are 3 shower and toilet blocks dotted around the site that are very clean all with elsan and grey waste disposal, There is WiFi where we parked we got a speed of around 10 mbps so watching Netflix or prime wasn't a problem, if you like fishing its very good the wife and me caught a lot of carp from 7lb to just over 20lb, there is plenty of other fish as well, I hear there is dog walks nearby or you can just walk the dogs around the large lake in a big circle with dog poo bins around the site, also there is a nice friendly bar that opens certain days of the week, it's a family run site that are very friendly and want your stay to be as good as possible, we liked it so much that we are now booking this site again for next year..

Disliked: Grey waste disposal is too high , but they told me it might get changed

Electric optional grass touring pitch

Liked: What an amazing weekend we had! We got caught in traffic meaning a very late arrival, Mark was super lovely and got us on our pitch and settled very swiftly! We then lost our van key so had to stay another night whilst waiting for the spare to arrive in the post, Mark was very accommodating and fished out our rubbish bag so we could check for the key and then delivered the key to our pitch after the postman delivered it. The facilities were spotless and the site as a whole was nice and tidy. Everyone on site was really friendly, my boyfriend had a great time fishing the lake and caught some big fish. We have busy corporate jobs and had a child free weekend so wanted the opportunity to unwind and relax, that's exactly what we got to do, it was so tranquil and beautiful. We absolutely will be recommending to friends and will be visiting again soon!

Local attractions

Does your canine companion deserve a royal treat? Take them to Sandringham Estate (five minutes’ drive), where they can sniff their way around 243 hectares of dog-friendly parkland. Humans can also stroll or cycle along nature trails winding through oak and chestnut groves, then reward themselves with an elegant afternoon tea (book in advance). At Norfolk Lavender (15 minutes), you can feast your eyes (and nose) on fields upon fields of colourful and fragrant flowers. Informative tours explain the process of harvesting and distilling lavender oil, and you will also learn all about the various uses of this aromatic plant. Stretching along the River Great Ouse, the historic town of King’s Lynn (15 minutes) is justifiably proud of its maritime heritage, which you can explore on guided or self-guided tours that take you along narrow cobbled streets to the medieval harbour and quayside.
