We have been coming to this site on and off for more than twenty years. Originally it was a forest site with no toilet blocks. Some years ago the site was expanded and upgraded. It now has 134 pitches with, all but a handful, on gravel hard standings and all are of a generous size. Most pitches require some side to side levelling. There are two excellent heated toilet blocks built and maintained to the famous Caravan Club standards. Water and waste disposal points are at the two toilet blocks and dotted around the site. Television reception is poor so TV booster points are provided free on each pitch, although you do have to provide your own cable, or purchase one from reception. There is a small play area for younger children. The site is now all year. Non members accepted but no tents. (There is a Camping and Caravanning Club site next door) Reception sell fresh milk and newspapers can be ordered. During the Spring of 2008 Sandringham was one of the second phase of Caravan Club sites to have WiFi internet access installed. Access cards are available from reception but you can log on direct to Kezone and pay online although this option is much more expensive.
Immediately around the site is easy access to forest walks around the Sandringham Estate. Also within fairly easy walking distance is Sandringham House and visitors centre where you can buy refreshments and there is also toilets and parking. If you want to visit a traditional seaside town take the short drive to Hunstanton. On the way call into Norfolk Lavender which is on the main road just before Hunstanton. Kings Lynn is also well worth a visit. As well as being a useful shopping town it is also steeped in history and several hours can be taken up with walking around the old town. For food shopping there are Tesco supermarkets in both Kings Lynn and Hunstanton, the later having slightly easier access, however we did come across a rather nice Budgens supermarket in Dersingham which is only a short distance from the campsite. The Glucksburg Stores, which is a short walk through the woods from the site in the direction of the C&CC campsite, also sells a range of essentials.
