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.

A great site but the sofa beds really need attention 03/09/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Robert F. Confirmed

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

    Great location, close to the coast, near to lost of things to do.
    Nice little pod, very warm even without heating and nice little oven and hob for tea and toast in the morning.

    Disliked: 

    The sofa bed was a proper pull out action which should have been comfortable but it was awful, there was a massive dip in the middle that was nigh on impossible to stay out of, we ended up turning to sleep with our heads at the wrong end of the bed which was a little better but still the dip was sucking us in. Probably got 3 hours sleep at the most because of the dip in the bed.

    The shower facilities were modern and spacious.
    Easy access to various locations
    Easy access to the site.
    Nice level site.
    The weekend food tent was fabulous. Pity it want there all week!
    Good walking for dogs
    The wardens were extremely helpful.

    Disliked: 

    The showers were far too hot. The Children found the temperature unbearable thus unable to adequately wash them.
    The pitches are cramped and we found it difficult to park our car once awning was up.
    On a very busy main road so quite noisy.
    The hot showers and cramped site mean we wouldnt return to this site.

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Graham W. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Facilities

    Disliked: 

    Road traffic noise all night and very loud, everyone being on top of each other, no real space between tents. Lots of dirt, not pitched on grass. Not being able to park car next to tent

From the manager...

We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us, unfortunately due to the tent side being busy over the six week period there was no time for the grass to be able to regrow, resulting in having the grass die
Unfortunately we do not have cars parked next to the tents when the site is busy as we have had times when people who are along the back have had trouble in getting their vehicles of due to tents being in front of them, so to reduce this we have the cars parked around the edge.
Thank you for visiting Pinecones

Thank you for your fantastic review, we are thrilled you enjoyed everything about our site, The mushrooms were off site, and it was a sad time when our visitors had to have their dog put to sleep due to eating these, but I am glad that the staff made you fully aware of this situation.

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)
  • Castle Acre Castle (12.8 miles)

  • St George's Guildhall (7.5 miles)
