Lovely big camping areas amidst the heathland and lots of onsite fun.

Set amidst 300 acres of mixed woodland and rare open heathland on the north Norfolk Coast, Kelling Heath is in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It's a lovely, natural setting, enhanced at night by a 'dark sky' policy, which means no glaring lights to get in the way of star-gazing. Just don't forget your torch, or you'll struggle to find your way around after dark!

From the entrance, a long drive sweeps down towards the reception in the 'village square' which on first glance can look rather imposing. Some may be put off by this - but don’t be as this 300-acre park has a lovely feel, and is arranged sympathetically for the happiest possible camping.  Other areas of the estate accommodate lodges and holiday homes, but the tent camping occupies a separate, quieter area.

There is much to see and enjoy in the area, but the onsite fun is particularly good at Kelling, which focuses on the natural environment. Acorn Activities, for budding naturalists of all ages, gets children involved in activities like pond dipping, story walks and creative arts. There are also evening wildlife walks to see bats or birds, and traditional evening entertainment with shantymen, folk and jazz in the village square. Other on-site options include playing boules or table tennis, swimming in the outdoor pool and using the tennis courts or adventure play areas.

So, this may be a big, organised campsite with lots of facilities and plenty to do - but Kelling Heath retains the essence of a good Cool Camping site: a chance to appreciate and enjoy nature at its beautiful best.

This site was good but too commercial for us. Torn between friends who had recommended it and the reviews. On the plus side the site is beautifully located and well maintained. Toilets and facilities were reasonably clean (considering the amount of people using them) and showers are big enough to get children and adults in if you have youngsters. 

For us the downsides were that the pitches were too small (the option of bigger pitches are available, we just booked the wrong one), it is a big site and because of the time we went was very busy (a bit different to other sites we have previously visited and maybe a wake up call for us). The main gripes were that we paid a lot more for this site than we would have others thinking that extras like tennis courts and indoor swimming pools were part of the deal but they are not. £7.50 to use the tennis courts for an hour, £11.00 for adults to use the indoor pool and £5.50 for children. The shop was well stocked and reasonably priced and the staff very nice but the pizza takeaway was not great and very overpriced. If you like centre parks with tents then you will be fine but the large commercial sites are not for us.
