West Runton Camping and Caravanning Club Site is situated a short distance outside of the popular seaside town of Cromer, West Runton is one of the most popular caravan parks in Norfolk. The park, which is open from late March to early November, has 200 pitches that are open for motorhomes, touring caravans and campervans, and tents. Serviced pitches are also available on site, including full electricity hook-ups.
We are a family friendly park and we even let you bring your household pets along for the experience. The north coast of Norfolk is so beautiful that everyone should come along to see it. The park has everything you need for a comfortable stay, with facilities for you to do your laundry, wash dishes, and dispose of any chemical waste you might have. Wireless internet is available for guests to use throughout the park, while a fun children’s play area makes it easy for little ones to run off their energy supplies and wind down for the day.
Our park is situated enough of a distance away from the coast to be sheltered from the North Sea breeze, but close enough that you can walk there in a very short time. Further inland, our park gives you easy access to Norfolk’s rolling countryside, including Beacon Hill, Norfolk’s highest point that provides views across the whole county and out towards the sea. The beaches at Cromer and along the coastline are all beautiful and popular with tourists in the area, while you can also enjoy water sports, including sailing and windsurfing, from many locations, while the waters are also warm and calm enough near the shoreline for swimming to be enjoyed, especially early morning when there is few people about. Those looking for something different can even organise a North Sea trip with a local fishing boat.
The Norfolk Shire Horse Centre a short distance from the park and is a popular place to visit, allowing the whole family to get up close and personal with many different breeds of horse. Holkham Hall and Felbrigg Hall are 18th and 17th century country houses that are open to visitors most of the year, with Holkham Hall also giving access to a nearby beach and acres of beautiful estate for you to explore at your leisure.
There are also railway and military museums within reach of the site via a short drive, meaning there is something for everyone when you make West Runton Camping and Caravanning Club Site your base for exploring Norfolk.

Fantastic site - regular visitor. Walk from the camp site through woods to open glades with views of sea and surrounding countryside. Short walk to West Runton beach - perfect spot for rock pooling. Alternatively enjoy a country stroll to Cromer and try crabbing on the pier. Facilities are always immaculate!

Booked on internet - A bit daunting as you drive down what looks like something out of Jurasic Park. But then you emerge into this oasis of lovelyness. The site is clean. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Well spaced out pitches, plenty of water stand pipes. 2 large toilets blocks which are cleaned out thouroughly everyday and inspected periodically. Small campshop, Play park for the children. Mobile Fish & Chip van Sundays and Wednesdays. Short walk to West Runton and Beach. Short trip to Chromer. Norwich £3.10 return on train per adult. We have booked again this year. Well chuffed West Runton Camping and Caravanning Club Site, Cromer, Norfolk

This is not the friendly site it first appears. Entrance not good especially for caravans, indifferent check in, random placing of pitches, cleanish showers, low on amenities, and not the dog friendly site as advertised. West Runton Camping and Caravanning Club Site, Cromer, Norfolk

Excellent all round. All the staff are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Lovely atmosphere. Spacious pitches, very clean and well maintained throughout. Toilet/shower blocks spotlessly clean. Turn right out of the site road and at the bottom are Spar and camping shops and a lovely pub with large garden. We have just started camping again now that our children are grown and it was coming here that swayed us in to joining the camping and caravanning club and get back into it again. Hope all our future experiences are as positive. Thank you for a lovely break, will be coming back. Definitely 5 stars. Hope that is the box I have selected.

Only 2 things I could fault this site for and they are 1. The entrance to the site A bit daunting for a 1st season caravanner like me 2. A lack of hand drying machine in the toilet blocks (nit picking I know but we don't always carry towels to the toilets) Apart from that we had an excellent time here staff were very helpful and the fish and chip van was a great bonus

Ideal site for exploring North Norfolk Coast. Sheringham and Cromer easily accessible on foot from site. Village Inn and Camping Shop in West Runton worth visiting. Toilet facilities vey good, campsite is always clean and tidy.
