A well located Norfolk campsite with great access to the coast, fens and traditional market towns

Once crowded with seafaring merchants importing French wines and Scandinavian fish, the bustling streets of King's Lynn drew crowds from across the country. The green edges of this maritime metropolis seemed the perfect place for wealthy William Gurney to build his grand mansion. But as sailing boats dwindled and the crowds began to fade, his illustrious home was torn down leaving only its extensive grounds. Centuries later, medieval streets and charming quaysides are the towns centrepiece once again and while Silly Willy may have demolished his home, we campers can doth our cap to what’s been left behind; a grassy parkland and an ideal setting for a family campsite.

Capitalising on this prized position in the village of Runcton is King's Lynn Caravanning & Camping Park, a pleasant site, dotted with century-old trees and equipped for every kind of camper. Tent-pitchers and van-parkers will love the generously-sized spaces, while the hedgerows that border each of the three fields help add extra shelter. Those hoping for a few more creature comforts can hire one of the eight luxury pods, fitted with heaters, fridges, microwave and a kettle, along with comfortable double beds and a folding sofa bed (allowing four people to sleep with ease). All of the pods and pitches share the two heated sanitary blocks, built to top eco-friendly standards and kept spotlessly clean.

It’s a short trip from the campsite into town and, while the history of King's Lynn has left elegant Georgian buildings, a pleasant waterfront and a couple of good museums, the site is also well poised for trips to the North Norfolk Coast and The Fens. A host of fantastic nature reserves are on the doorstep and some of Norfolk’s best beaches are well within half an hour's drive. Speedy access to this wealth of attractions is down to the nearby A47 and if you’re not used to traffic noise it’s best to steer clear of the field nearest the road. Elsewhere, the sounds of chirping birds dominates and the tranquility of the campsite creates an escape from that everyday hum.

Whether you’re a family spending days on the beach, couples touring the quaint flint villages or a full-scale rally staying in the spacious extra field, King's Lynn Caravanning & Camping Park balances top location with a welcoming atmosphere. It's an easy place to settle down and bask in the satisfaction of simply being on holiday. Sit back, relax and browse through the folder of local recommendations, taking your pick of the endless places to go.

Where the river slides into The Wash, a nature reserve (08456 003078) merges into the arching seafront of the North Norfolk Coast. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is home to fantastic beaches, a spattering of nature reserves and backed by pleasant seaside towns, such as Hunstanton (01485 532610) and Heacham.

Ideal location

I stayed for 1 night on a non electric tent pitch. The site is clean and tidy and the field well maintained. The biggest negative is the close proximity of the road which is noisy even through the night. Maybe caravans would be better suited at that point and the tents located further away? The shower and toilet block is very clean with nice hot water.

Lovely site

The site is very nice. The showers are toilets are great and very clean. We camped for a night, unfortunately, I found it too noisy with a main road near. The kids slept well though.

First time out

Our first night away in our campervan.  Keeping it simple, this was a great site to test our novice skills. Impeccable showers and toilets. Good kitchen washing facilities. Nice walk to Fair Green to the Gate Inn which served a humongous steak pie and served a great pint. The campsite wasn't busy, nice and quiet apart from the odd RAF jet overhead.  Would use again
