General

  • Well-maintained site with excellent facilities
  • A few miles from the Norfolk coast
  • Sixteen luxury bathrooms on site with individual showers and loos

Have you ever been to the Norfolk coast? Pine-ing to return or to see it for the first time? Come and stay at Pine Cones Caravan and Camping, near King's Lynn inland and Heacham and Hunstanton on the coastline – this is such a royally good region that Queen Liz and her cohorts have a pad at Sandringham just a mile away.

If the Queen were camping, it's a fairly safe bet Liz would like the up to date and excellently kept amenities at Pine Cones too: 16 warm luxury bathrooms, all with their own shower, toilets, basin and storage racks; a roomy, indoors washing-up area with several sinks and plenty of drainer space; and a washing machine and dryer in a separate room to sort out the laundry.

Once the essentials are sorted, send the kids off to the adventure playground to try out the treehouse, rope ladders and high level walkway, and settle down in the picnic area with coffee and eats… there's a coffee machine on site and the well-stocked shop sells a good selection of items including bread, milk, and fresh and frozen food. A selection of outdoor gym equipment is also available for the energetic holidaymaker.

Off site, Pine Cones is about a mile from the nearest pub the Feathers, or trot off to award-winning the Coach and Horses. Both are in nearby Dersingham village, where there's also a supermarket, takeaway and coffee shop dishing up homemade cakes daily.

  • Fully-serviced hardstanding touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The site is clean and tidy.
    The children’s play and gym equipment is good quality and maintained.
    The toilets and showers are clean and good quality.
    Hot water in the showers is plentiful and the push button operation stays on for a reasonable length of time.
    Staff are polite and friendly.
    Good location only a few miles from the Sandringham Visitors Centre.
    Two toilet blocks and never waited for toilet or shower.
    Site is secure with barriers requiring code for access.
    Pitches a good size and level.
    Has site wide WiFi.

    Disliked: 

    We had booked a fully serviced hard standing pitch, however the position of the water and waste connection was far to far away for a fixed connection to the caravan which meant we had to use the water and waste tanks which was annoying.
    There appear to be a lot of long staying or permanent vans on site, annoyingly at 5.30am every morning during our stay people adjacent started the diesel car and drove off waking us all up.
    The site is directly off the by-pass so there is quite a bit of road noise all the time. Occasionally there would be no hand soap in one of the toilets for washing of hands.
    Adjacent van wasnt following site quiet times and their TV could be heard long into the night.
    Need to park the car on the adjacent grass and whilst it wasn’t raining there were a few pitches where this had churned up.
    WiFi speeds only good for email etc. Children were unable to send WhatsApp pictures using it.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review. Between the months of Nov and March we have our winter seasonal on site,
Most of our pitches have easy access to the electric, water and waste hook up,
We do have bought of people taking our hand wash out of the bathrooms for their own use,
Thanks

It was a different experience 😁 they kept it clean. 22/02/2019

  • Camping pod
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    It was warm in the pod, out of the way so private, good dog enclosed area but only ideal for smaller dogs as larger ones can jump the fence, good play area, good washing up facilities.
    Very welcoming, polite and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    The perspecs window and door, it rattled quite a bit and security is very low with them. There was mould in the door because of damp. Cobwebs all over the roof. The heater was extremely close to the wood roof so didn’t like having it on too long as the wood got hit, the outside of the heater also got extremely hot and it was next to one of the camp bed so you could burn yourself. The sofa bed was very uncomfortable you could feel the springs through it. I wouldn’t say the bathrooms where luxury but it was nice they where private. I feel £1 for a wash or tumble is a lot of money personally.

  • Fully-serviced grass touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    All facilities at each pitch (water, electricity, drainage and elsan point), children's playground, site shop, view over countryside and close to beaches. Also friendly management who let us park the caravan up for an extra few hours whilst we took our kids to the beach on our last day. Toilet/shower block was very nice; new and heated, with music! Good, level pitches also, with a choice of grass or hard standing, or a bit of both for routers with awnings.

    Disliked: 

    There was some road noise. Wi-Fi signal not brilliant at the far side of the site.

From the manager...

Thank you for the great review, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Local attractions

Beaches, historic houses, museums and festivals, tiny villages, market towns and fab family days out are all easily accessible from Pine Cones Caravan and Camping – after a day at Sandringham, but of course, to wave at Liz first...

Within a couple of miles, the deer safaris, farming activities and walking trails of Snettisham Deer Park and the sights and smells of Norfolk Lavender are both good options for a day out; Snettisham has an RSPB reserve too for those itching to twitch.

But as you're probably in west/north Norfolk for the beaches, head to Heacham, Holkham and Hunstanton first, the closest sands to Pine Cones, and then take a trip to Brancaster 11 miles away; the family-friendly and very scenic sands of Sheringham, Cromer and Mundsley are a little further along the coast. (Also, the final scenes of Shakespeare in Love were filmed at Holkham, and all the beaches in these parts are fairly filmworthy, so bring your camera.)

Other excellent options for days out include village hopping and shopping among the scenic sights of Dersingham, Holt, Fakenham, Aylsham and Burnham Market to pick up some local produce, or going along to one of Norfolk's festivals or events: there's usually something going on throughout the year.

Pine Cones is also on the edge the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – bring walking boots, crabbing nets and plenty of room for picnics.

Must see

  • Sandringham (1.8 miles)
  • Houghton Hall (7.0 miles)
