Manor Farm Caravan Site , Cromer

Discussion in 'Norfolk' started by loudoo2, Jul 14, 2013.

  1. We've just spent the weekend at this site and it was ace. The site was big but split up into about 3 fields and didn't feel crowded at all. We stayed in Molls Meadow which allowed dogs, Other areas are dog free. The meadow was a little bumpy in places so the chocks were needed.The lady in reception pointed us to the best pitch and she was right. We had a great view out to the sea and could see the sun rise and fall.





    The facilities were great and very clean. There was even an ice cream van that came round each night.

    It was about a 10 min walk to the beach where you can go crabbing and do a little sunbathing. No luck with the crabs for us but we'll try again next time.

    We had one casualty from the weekend. Woodys chair died :(


    Would definitely go again and recommend to anyone.

  11. Crabs like raw bacon tied to a piece of string, they don't like to let go, raw bacon is strong and if your knot's good - you win. :thumbsup:

  14. No one was catching anything though and that was after your crabbing advice!!!

    We went to this one year, there was hardly more than 20 people competing but the kids loved it. Now discontinued after 1500 people turned up and it couldn't cope. Such a shame quirky stuff like this is just what you want on your hols.

    We went there last month and the kids were filling buckets with crabs, tipping them out and filling them again. We didn't even have to walk more the 20yards from where we parked the van. Best crabbing ever.
