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.
