We love Applewood Campsite. We visit atleast twice a year. It is excellent for the children, wide open space, a pub, takeaway and a shop within 5mins walking and of course Banham Zoo its the only time we truely relax can't wait for our next visit, thank you Applewood.

A truly fab site, really relaxed, the kids can safely ride their bikes, playing in the park etc. while the parents relax. Always very clean with helpful friendly staff. We went last year that the kids want to go this year and have booked again and dont know why anyone would want to go anywhere else. The best part was paying a extra £2 on top of the entry price for the zoo and could go in everyday anytime for the whole stay of our holiday, which the kids loved as they could collect the different medals to show their friends. Has a shop at the enterance that has all the essentials for everyday, and a fanastic fish and chip shop too

Went here as part of a Caravan Club Rally.
Excellent well maintained site with plenty of room around all pitches.
Two shower blocks one a bit dated but ok, the newer one had no seats to use after showering.
Banham Zoo next door with special rates for user of the site.

The facilities were excellent and the staff were very friendly. Access to Banham Zoo was an added bonus and its right next door so you don't have to drive there.
