Site generally very clean, tidy and well presented. My first suggestion would be to update your website on the traffic calming through Gapton Hall Road. Avoid this route. There is a recent installation with a 2m width restriction and raised kerbs. We lost our hub cap and friends scraped their van. The warning sign on the road came too late for us to divert. Some prior notice would have been really helpful. The shower rooms were clean but no surfaces to place clean dry items such as clothes or towels. Signs ask you to keep the area dry but there are no mops to allow you to do this. No hairdryers anywhere. My biggest concern on the site is the shared waste for elan and grey waste. The owner tried to allay my fears saying the waste goes to the same drain but this is not my concern. My worry is cross contamination. There is a raised level around the hole which for starters is hard to push my waste warrior up.... but there is bound to be splashing from my water as it exits and this can easily contaminate my carrier (which basically only holds my washing up water) with other people's toilet waste. I have not come across any other sites with shared points like this.

This in our opinion was very good site despite it was winter and there were only half a dozen other tourers there. We were given a very friendly welcome by Sue who seemed to be always available for advice on the surrounding area. The site is devided into areas for caravans and tents. We stayed on the hard standing area with electric hook up. The heated toilet/shower block was second to none. The showers were always hot and there were individual curtained off washing basins.We found the block was always very clean and tidy with pictures on the wall which gave it a homely feel. There was a washing up area, TV lounge and free Wi-Fi connection.
All the usual large supermarkets are within a short drive as is Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft and Oulton Broad. Cromer, Wroxham and other Norfolk Broads are not that far. There are plenty of interesting places to visit.
A twenty minute walk can take you to The Kingfisher static caravan park with a very welcoming club. It provides entertainment and an excellent reasonable priced restaurant. The Sunday carvery is a must.There are also two local pubs within walking distance of Rose Farm but we are unable to comment as we were unable to visit during our short stay.
We will definately be returning to Rose Farm in the not to distant future.

I cant comment to much on this site becuse we went in winter and things could be different in peak season .
my overall view of the park is ,
nice set out pitches, some large , some small.
hard standing and grass , large camping area, modern toilet/shower blocks. good dish washing area .elsan points .
Electric hook ups on most pitches . taps few and far between .
play area for the little ones.
15 min to Yarmouth 30 to Lowerstoft so good days out.
pub in walking distance and Tesco express.
taps with small hose pipes fastened on so could not get motor home tank filled.
no soap in dispenser during our stay
bins hard to find and full when we did
Elsan requires cover on
I also thought the price a little steep for this time of year when you take into account the rate for over 50s,
Didnt see any one to talk to during our stay but a few seasonals taking up pitches but not in them, looks like they do caravan storage so could be more seasonals taking up other pitches?
I have to say if you have a tourer tour, if you want to stay a long time buy a static and keep pitches free for people who want to tour.This is one of my pet hates i am sorry to say.
Thats how we found things but again would like to visit during peak times,so you will have to see for your selfs.
recomend you book first and check price and pitch size .
