    We stayed at Inclebrough Fields CC site in between Cromer and Sheringham. Had a smashing time, there is more at Sheringham but bought the best crab we have ever tasted at Cromer. (that is saying something as we live near Whitby) ::bigsmile: From the campsite you can walk the coast into either town about 1 hour walk each way for both towns. :thumb:

    I worked down the coast a little for two years.
    Cromer is a nice if small place, plenty of fresh fish, locally caught lobster and crab etc. All very civilised and very handy for some lovely country side.

    If you are lucky enough to be of the age to have a bus pass, like me, I recommend using the coastal bus service, we were based at Wells Next the Sea on a CL , there is a steam train there to ride and we bussed to Cromer, and back, stopping at Sheringham , lovely town , fresh fish, Crab and Jellied Eel available here ,Another day we went to Kings Lynn on the bus, it's Coast Hopper route 35, just jump on and off, very frequent and helpfull staff.We had a great time.:thumb::thumb:

    We stayed at Seacroft four years ago when we purchased our first caravan. The site had only just been taken over by the CC so probably up to their standards now. Very close to the town centre. Have a nice time. :Smile:

    Cromer in Norfolk

    We stayed just outside Cromer last year during our tour of England. Can't remember the site name but was easily walkable, about 20 minutes.:thumb:

    Cromer is a small town with plenty to do, a good theatre on the pier with some very good shows all year. Some lovely coastal walks. especially up towards the old lighthouse.
    Local crab is lovely. We used our bus passes and went to Sheringham for the day, it was carnival day and a great time was had by all.

    Sheringham has a railway staion with steam trains and you can get up close to them and go on the 5 mile ride.

    We spent 5days there and didn't really get bored at all. You must visit the Henry Bloggs lifeboat station on the end of the pier and also the lifeboat museum.:thumb:

    Two things Cromer is famed for throughout the UK.

    Fresh Crab the likes of which you will not find anywhere else.....and Henry Blogg, the only RNLI coxwsain to have been awarded three gold medals. He was also awarded the RNLI silver medal four times, and decorated with the George Cross and British Empire medal.

    I've been to Cromer many times and though i've visited the lifeboat house and Henry Blogg museum before, I always go as to me it's like paying homage to a truly great man.

    The Peir is one of Britains oldest and i've walked it in all weathers.

    As a young boy I often walked from Cromer to Overstrand along the cliffs just to go and see the lighthouse. I wonder how many kids of today would see this as 'entertainment'?!!

    The town is small but has a good variety of shops.

    DON'T MISS a fish 'n chip meal at Mary Janes!

    Varying reviews though the last time I went six years ago it was the best fish 'n chip meal i've ever had.

    We stayed at Seacroft 4 weeks ago and it is a nice site, only 40 minutes for us so quite local. There is club on site with a separate room should you wish not to listen to the awful singer they had one when we were there :ROFLMAO:. They serve food which was very reasonable. Nice and clean site with a swimming pool should you be lucky with the weather. Close enough to walk into Cromer or to East Runton in the opposite direction. Enjoy your stay in Norfolk.

    We stayed at Seacroft last year - Oct? I think. Never been to that bit of England before really (dreadful admission) - and I have to say I liked it - Seacroft and Cromer - and would happily go to either or both again.

    Loads of people have told us about the No 35 since then! (my bus pass arrived last week, Pete already has his, so am quite looking forward to hitting the public transport network!!)

    Not too far for us anyway to walk into Cromer, a lot of it is through a longitudinal park along the cliff top, so that's very pleasant, and the variety of different style and age of buildings along the road kept me happy too!

    We only live 20 miles or so from Cromer but spend many weekends on the North Norfolk coast between there and Holt either on sites or CLs we love it so much, never tire of the places we visit. We have been to Seacroft but only once as it's always full when we want to go, but the visit we had was good facilities up to the ususal CC standard and we had a nice reasonable priced meal in the club house. If you are into old houses Felbrigg Hall (NT) is a good place to visit. Further round the coast there are numerous villages to enjoy such as Cley & Blakeney and bigger towns like Sheringham where there is a steam train line through to Holt. Enjoy your stay and I'm sure you'll want to return, North Norfolk may not have the dramatic scenery of some parts of the country but it has a special beauty of its own. :Smile:

    Catch the bus from Cromer to Sheringham then the Steam Train-The Poppy Line-to Holt then a pony & cart into Holt, a couple of pints, some lunch, a walk around then do it all again in reverse! Lovely day out!
    Good fresh fruit & veg and seafood stall & butcher at Sheringham market on Sat morning.
    A fantastic shop in Sheringham High street-if they can't supply it-it probably doesn't exist!!!!
    Cromer Crabs are the best :ROFLMAO:
