This is a site that welcomes families, whether you have a caravan, tent, camper van, or just want to stay in one of their caravans on site. If you want a bit more luxury though you can stay in their top of the range logcabins. My husband has been to this site every year since he was born, and weve made it a tradition to take our three children there for their first holiday, so this just shows how much we like it. When we go there are people there who go year after year too, and if you do decide to return you get a voucher for 10 pound off your next visit. The site it'self is seperate into 5 sections, privatley owned caravans, searles caravans, caravan & touring pitches, tents, and the log cabins. There are wonderful pitches there for your caravans. Some have grass pitches, some have the concrete pitches and some have the top of the range pitches for your caravan, where you can plug in your electric, your ariel can be plugged in to recieve satellite, you can plug in your water & waste pipe, and then you dont need to fetch your water all week, plus there is a nice pitch at the side for your awning too. There is now a nine hole pitch and putt course on site, a multi sports pitch, and also a 2 large parks for the kiddies as well as small ones situated inbetween pitches. You can also hire things such as bikes, scooters, the little car, prams, highchairs, the list is endless. The park is in Hunstanton it'self and is a few miles from Kinslynn. It is right near the seafront, and takes 5minutes to walk. You can leave your car onsite all week as it is only halfhour slow walk to town along the seafront, or 10 mintutes walking through town. There is a indoor heated pool as well as an outdoor one with slide and splash pool. There is a spa, sauna and gym, the gym is at a small extra charge. There is great entertainment on an evening, with family room as well as an all adults room.
There are activities through the day too, with loads to keep the kids happy, you can send them off at 10am and not see them till noon, which is great. There are plenty of shops in town for grocery shopping, at reasonable prices, as well as your normal high street shops. But there is a shop on site too with chipshop, and laundrette, so you have no need to leave the site if you dont want to. The toilet facilities are the best ive seen at a site, with great showers and plugs for dryers, although there are free dryers there. So be warned if you go, you will want to keep going back!
Situated between the towns of Cromer and East Runton Seacroft camp site is one of the many North Norfolk touring destinations. To get there follow the coast road from Cromer heading towards Sheringham direction, there are a couple of 'static' caravan sites on the right hand side with a small row of houses betwwen them, totally opposite to the row of houses there is Seacroft. It is marked with a flag to make it easier to spot, this years flag is blue (apart from significant days such as the queens birthdays when the union flag is usually displayed instead). Seacroft has around 120 pitches, many with electricity hook up points, most of the pitches are seperated and sheltered by bushes and shrubs making it look very nice and helping to 'break-up' the north sea winds. There is a highly maintained toilet/shower block with disabled facilities and washing up sinks too. There is a place here for chemical toilet disposal too. Unlike many camping sites Seacroft do not charge any extra for use of these facilities and there is usually ample hot water (occasionally during peak times the water is not quite as hot but still hot all the same). There is a children's play area which has swings and a slide which is walled off from the main body of the site. If you like playing football seacroft has an ample pitch or if your pace is more relaxed it also has it's own pitch and putt. Swimming in the outdoor heated swimming pool is great as it is positioned so it catches lots of sunlight and little wind. Inside there are many facilities to keep you and yours occupied. There is a licensed bar and resteraunt, a conservatory which serves as a non-smoking bar (also adult only after 5pm), television lounge with sky sports channels, a small shop for convenience (bread is a bit expensive but there is a small supermarket about 5 minutes away), and a games area with 2 pool tables and a few other machines (not an amusement arcade though, crome
r has many of those). The 'home-cooked' specials have an extremely good reputation****************************** in particular Sandra's (the manageress, and co-incidentally, my mum) superb guiness steak and kidney pie.***************************** UPDATE. Sadly Sandra passed away late febraury of this year, she will be missed immensly by all those who knew her. She was an incredibly strong willed and confident woman who was repected and loved by virtually all who came to know her. Seacroft will always be Sandra's to a lot of people and her steak and kidney pie is already missed too by a lot of regulars. Goodbye Mum.************************************* END UPDATE During the busier times of the year there is ample entertainment supplied too. Ally the singing chef sings, plays piano and guitar (cover songs mainly). Uncle Razz and Auntie Pearl are respected and established children's entertainers. Spectrum are a duet that perform 50's and 60's songs. Jim Crosby is a guitarist who plays a variety of styles to suit most tastes. Also there is quite often bingo, pool competitions, quiz nights and much more. On a more serious note, Seacroft employ a nightwatchman to oversee the site and ensure noisy or troublesome situations are dealt with quickly and with as little disruption to others as possible. If any of you are wondering why I would use a camp site just up the road from where I live.......because I also happen to work there. All in all I have seen thousands (literally) of satisfied customers many of whom come time and time again and only a few with complaints. If you want a holiday where you can see the sea without having to go anywhere at all then Seacroft has got it covered. The reason I suggested this item is that I know that several dooyooers have and do visit Seacroft and use the facilities I look forward to their opinions.....Alec(sit2020) I mean you at lea
st. 29 aug 2003 UPDATE A lot has changed at dear old seacroft, the owners, the staff, the atmosphere. Now I do not wish to show any dis-respect to the new owners but they have made some serious changes to the site. They have closed the television room for a start, although i believe they put a television out for major events. Customers who are also friends have told me that they cannot get a breakfast most mornings. No food or bar services are available through the earlier part of the day. The menu has been altered to 'easy-prepare' meals only with virtually all of the favourites removed. The staff have told me that they are no longer allowed to drink alcohol whilst working. This i realise is for practical reasons, but it was part oif the 'holiday' atmosphere as the staff were partying with you. I must say however that the temperature of the swimming pool seemed rather high for an outdoor pool so some things are better. I do not wish to put people off from going to seacroft these days but I would like to point out that i wrote my opinion when times where very different indeed.
