17th February to 10th December (approx.)
Welcome to Kelling Heath, set amongst 250 acres of woodland and rare open heathland yet close to the North Norfolk Coastline at Weybourne.
Enjoy Kelling Heath Holiday Park at your own pace from the comfort of your holiday acommodation set amongst mixed woodland and open heathland. Choose from timber lodges, caravan holiday homes or bring your own touring caravan or tent.
As well as a network of footpaths for you to explore the park by there are several self-guided trails. These are available throughout the year and can be enjoyed at your own pace at any time of day. Leaflets for these trails are available at reception; there is a small charge for some of the leaflets.
This trail takes you through heathland, woodland and passes a pond. Heaths and woods are special places and are enhanced by fine views of the sea and nearby coast, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

This is our most favourite site and we have been going to Kelling Heath for the past 5 years. The site is exactly as it appears in the brochure.The touring pitches are large and the site well maintained. Our daughter is Type 1 Diabetic and the large shop stocks a vast variety of food, which is a weight off our minds. It saves panicking if you should run out of something.The shop also stocks gifts etc. There is an indoor and outdoor pool which are clean. Its freedom for children. They all join in playing games outside the caravans, riding bikes,Or there is a mountain bike trail for the more adventurous. (bikes can be hired).If you take your dog, there are lovely walks through the woods,dog bins are throughout the park.Kelling Heath organise different nature walks.pond-dipping, bat walks etc. The restraunts serve resonably priced meals.The steam train 'Poppy Line' stops within the park which goes between Holt and Sherringham. As we go the same time every year, many other caravanners have done the same thing, so you get to know them. would reccommend 100%

With it's oaky wood and adventure playgrounds for your children it's a great place to take your children when you here the "I'm bored" thing. You do have to book online for a lodge\caravan and they are just so cosy! There is a Folly where is live music on a Friday and Saturday so best to go there on those particular days but if you can't get in those days don't give a sigh there are plenty of things to do and all those half terms is a very good time to go. I just love it there and please please take friends and family it's just so lovely. 5 stars deffo!
A VERY NICE PLACE TO STAY WITH GENEROUSLY SIZED PITCHES. TOILETS AND SHOWERS ON THE BLUE BUTTERFLY AREA WERE SPOTLESS. OTHER BLOCKS HOWEVER NEED UPDATING. ENJOYED A MEAL AT THE FORGE BUT WOULD ADVISE BOOKING IN ADVANCE. MY ONE CONCERN IS THAT MORE NEEDS TO BE DONE TO CHECK THAT PEOPLE ARE PITCHING THEIR TENTS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE RULES LAYED DOWN BY THE PARK. WE WITNESSED SOME REAL POTENTIAL FIRE RISKS. OVERALL 3 OUT OF 5
Although Kelling Heath is a stunning place and we go every year, it fails on cleanliness. We've stayed in all their holiday homes, but the attention to detail on cleanliness is still lacking, even though we tell them in their questionnaire every year. However, Kelling is still the best holiday park in Norfolk!! The reception staff could be more mature and friendlier with less of a couldn't-care-less attitude.
Practical Motorhome Independent Site Reviews.
This is a commercial site suitable for anyone, carefully arranged with defined areas to give a sense of space and up-to-date facilities. Touring pitches are surrounded by heather and bracken. All are numbered, and have 16-amp hook-up.
In high season, the touring area could become crowded, but the open heathland provides many walks, cycle rides and facilities for children, who also have a rustic-style adventure play area within sight of their parents' pitches. There is also a well-signposted nature trail and conservation pond.
Even though there's lots of open space, motorcaravanners may not even be aware of the considerable numbers of static caravans in dedicated areas, many of which are well concealed in the woodland approaches. However everyone can enjoy the comprehensive facilities in the central ‘Village Square', where there are restaurants, bars with live entertainment (in season), and a full leisure centre, which has a large pool, sauna, steam room and gym. The well stocked, licensed, supermarket, sells everything from newspapers to camping equipment and gifts. There is even a cash machine. Everything appears to be efficiently run.
The site has its own platform for the charming North Norfolk steam railway, to Sheringham, which adds to the excitement for children. All the resort attractions are at the end of the line. You can also walk along the lane to Weybourne, buy a seafood lunch and enjoy the beach and surrounding countryside.
Each touring area has its own toilet block, complete with baby care facilities, and is supervised by its own warden. All facilities were impressively clean. Sparse lighting in the touring areas makes a torch necessary, and children should be briefed on finding their way back to base when they go exploring in the extensive grounds. 22 Jun 2005

This is a well-equipped commercial site with plenty of facilities. All the pitches have been carefully arranged with clearly defined heather and bracken boundaries to create a greater sense of space. All are numbered, and all have 16A hook-up.
In high season, the touring area gets busy, but the open heathland provides many walks and cycle rides away from it all. And children can escape to a rustic-style adventure play area that can be seen from the pitches. There is also a well-signposted nature trail and a conservation pond.
The central ‘Village Square’ houses bars with live entertainment in season, a full leisure centre with a large pool, sauna, steam room and gym, plus several restaurants.
A well-stocked licensed shop sells everything from newspapers to camping equipment and souvenirs. There is even a cash machine.

As you travel down Kelling Heath’s long wooded drive it would be easy to imagine you were in the US rather than rural Norfolk, thanks to the site’s cabin-style static vans peeping through the woodland. It gives a taster of what’s in store on site.
Although the camping fields can get crowded, the space provided by the open areas of heath and spread-out facilities keep the place feeling relaxed. The site is based around a sophisticated reception area and leisure complex, the Village Square. There is a well-stocked, if slightly expensive shop. You’ll find The Folly provides live entertainment and the Terrace and Forge Bars offer well-priced evening meals.
The surrounding heathland is a sight to behold in summer, with gorgeous purple heather mixed with yellow gorse. As well as acres of woodland, heath and natural attractions such as conservation ponds, the site is also just a few minutes’ drive from the beautiful Norfolk coast and the pretty village of Weybourne.
In the centre of the site is a rustic-style adventure playground where children can play within sight of parents’ pitches. This is also the hub of various nature walks which are well signposted with wooden interpretative boards. Throughout the year guests can enjoy other activities, details of which are published on the Environmental Information Board at the Village Square.
Although there are three toilet blocks around the site, it can still be quite a walk to the nearest one. They are functional and clean. Some lights around the site might also make finding your caravan a lot easier.

This site is described as a “unique holiday experience” in Kelling Heath Holiday Park’s website, and with some justification. Set close to Weybourne on the north Norfolk coastline, this holiday park’s combination of facilities and all-important location is nothing short of magnificent.
Set in the middle of a designated area of outstanding beauty, it is famed for its natural pursuits. There are woodland and heathland walks, nature trails beside the park’s conservation ponds and the chance to study the many species of bird which flock to the area all year round. So it’s no surprise the park was awarded a David Bellamy Gold Award for conservation.
Yet the park also has a range of family-oriented recreational and leisure facilities which are second to none. Bars, restaurants, health and fitness clubs can be found on the park’s fully-paved Village Square. This is also the venue for the live open-air entertainment, that is staged on evenings in the summer when the weather is fine.
The camping and caravanning experience itself, of course, is just as enjoyable. Touring campers are offered a choice of 300 spaces, most of which come with electrical hook-ups (16A), with another 54 unmarked, standard pitches. These are set away from the hubbub of the Village Square in a quiet part of the park, surrounded by pine trees and beautiful open heathland: a truly stunning environment.
Campers enjoy exemplary facilities including free showers, laundry and dishwashing facilities, and clean toilets in three well-lit buildings, the most modern of which is heated. These also have baby-changing rooms and covered access for disabled people.
In its time, Kelling Heath has won numerous plaudits (it was Practical Caravan’s Park of the Year award in 1998). It will not come as little surprise, therefore, to learn that visitors return to the park year after year.
