Detail information about this campsite

M.C. van Dorp-Kalhorn

"A beautiful, spacious camping amidst trees and surrounded by the Thetford Forest, a paradise for hikers. The campground has a heated swimming pool with paddling pool and an excellent bar. An ideal family campsite. Last 1.5 km through the forest is a road not in good condition."

Dieser Campingplatz überrascht durch seine aussergewoehnlich schoene Lage im Wald und durch immer fortwaehrend fleissige Mitarbeiter. Einen ganz grossen Lob an David, Richard und alle anderen Mitarbeiter, auch fuer die ueberragende Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft. Wir waren mit 2 Hunden am Platz, der umliegende Wald eignet sich hervorragend zum Spazieren. Im Sommer empfiehlt sich allerdings guter Mueckenschutz.
Das Gelaende ist weitlaeufig mit ausreichend Platz auf jedem Stellplatz. Man kommt sich nirgends eingeengt vor. Strom 10 Ampere, ausreichend. Das Schwimmbad ist beheizt, Kinder muessen von einer volljaehrigen Aufsichtsperson begleitet werden. Dadurch wird der Bademeister gespart und die Stellplatzkosten sehr guenstig gehalten.
Die Lage ist ideal im laendlichen Bereich, um einen Abstecher nach Cambridge, Norwich oder zu den Kuesten Norfolks zu machen.
Kleinigkeiten lassen sich am Campingplatz kaufen, der naechste Supermarkt (TESCO) ist etwa 6 km Richtung Thetford gelegen.

A good site to go to. Lots of beautiful surroundings. We went for long walks and cycling through the forest. The main outdoor pool is heated. There is a large wooden playground in the centre of the site. childen love to build dens in the forest and swing from the trees. The staff are very friendly and always there to help. The shop sells everything you need. They stock fresh meat and poulty from the local village, if you want more East Harling Village is only a 5 minutes drive away. Also in East Harling is Chinese restaurant/takeaway which now deliver to The Dower House, as do Tescos!!! Evenings are also nice and quiet as there is a strict rule - no noise after 11pm. Onsite is a small wooden shed next to the shop, which displays all leaflets on local attractions. So you can always find something to do on them rainy days! It also stocks books and magazines that previous customers have left for you. The Bar is open from 7pm until 11pm most evenings throughout the summer.
