We may never be royal, but just as a cat can look at a king, we can enjoy one of the Queen's favourite country retreats by the seaside. The Sandringham Camping and Caravanning Club Site is situated within the grounds of Sandringham royal estate, in the picturesque Norfolk countryside. Open from mid-February to the first week of January, this caravan park in Norfolk welcomes tents, trailer tents, motorhomes and caravans.
There are 270 pitches, many with electric hook ups for those who want them. Children and pets are welcome and the children have a lovely play area, while absolutely everyone can enjoy exploring the mature woodland within this fabulous stately parkland setting. Wildlife is abundant in the park, so you're bound to spot squirrels and birds during your walks.
The caravan park has good camping facilities to offer, such as toilets, hot showers, washing machines and tumble dryers, a chemical waste disposal point and washing up facilities There is Wi-Fi internet available for guests to use throughout their stay at Sandringham.
During your holidays in Norfolk, it's worth popping in to Sandringham Visitor Centre to find out more about this historic estate. In addition to the museum within the grounds, there are often special events planned here.
If you enjoy birdwatching as a hobby you're probably aware that the Norfolk coast is a fantastic place to see rare migratory birds in winter. Visit the RSPB's famous bird reserves at Snettisham and Titchwell and also Pensthorpe Nature Reserve, which you may have spotted on BBC TV's Springwatch programme. The National Wildlife Trust has nature reserves at Cley Marshes.
Walking holidays in Norfolk are also popular, and the landscape around Sandringham offers many gentle local walking routes, some going from the campsite, through woodland, farmed countryside and the beautiful local lavender fields.
The nearest big town to the Sandringham campsite is historic King’s Lynn, with its attractive old river quay, plenty of good pubs, eating places and shops.
If you liked the scent of lavender as you brush past the leaves during your walks around Sandringham, you should definitely pay a visit to Norfolk Lavender near King's Lynn. Here you'll be able to see glorious lavender gardens, a lavender oil distillery, collections of different varieties of the classically perfumed plant and buy gifts from an array of scented soaps, perfumes and other products. Best of all, you can eat it! The Lavender Kitchen Restaurant dishes up creative meals that incorporate the nutritious and flavoursome herb – prepare to be amazed. Take the taste of Norfolk home as gifts for your friends, with lavender flavoured chocolate, fudge and beer.
Sandringham Camping and Caravanning Club Site makes a great base for seaside holidays in Norfolk, too. Visit the seaside town of Hunstanton, especially if you have children, since there is a lovely big clean, safe beach, as well as tourist attractions such as the Sea Life Centre and Aquarium. You might even see seals swimming just offshore here.
Fancy a sea fishing expedition? There are plenty of fishermen in Norfolk who run summer holiday sea fishing trips for tourists who fancy getting out in the North Sea. There are also fishing lakes inland, where you can try your hand at catching farmed trout and salmon.

This is a really lovely site, set in beautiful surroundings with friendly staff who always make you feel welcome. There is lots to do locally from walks to beaches to a play barn for the children. This was our second visit and will definitely be going back again. We have family in Norfolk and this site is quite central for our visiting needs.

Set in woodland on the Sandringham estate. Pitches in woodland clearings. Good toilet facilities. Lots of lovely walks.
Short distance only to the house and grounds (admission charges).
Good tourist area with seaside Hunstanton to the north and market town of Kings Lyn to the south.
