We were already on our way here for the weekend when I received an email asking that I print the attachment for arrival. Clearly I couldn't do that from the car and it should have been sent far earlier to me. I emailed back to ask what I should do and received no response.
When we arrived after a 4 hour drive (with 2 pensioners, a toddler and a baby), we were shocked to discover that the caravan was not clean. It didn't look like it had seen a hoover with grass on the floor and even on 2 of the beds. There were urine stains on 1 of the toilets seats as well. When we took the washing up bowl out of the sink we were greeted by lots of old food, dirt and a rancid smell. I had to call the owner who then sent a cleaner and we had to vacate the caravan for an hour. Although it was then cleaned to a decent standard, it was inconvenient and frustrating given that we were all tired.
The caravan itself is nice and fairly close to what the site has to offer. It's quite expensive to use the facilities though so be aware. There's a decent fish and chip shop on site though and it's walking distance to the beach albeit that it requires you to walk down a lot of steps which was hard with a pushchair. Wifi is intermittent at best.
It's fairly close to Great Yarmouth (10 minutes drive) which we liked.
None of us would go again.
We wanted to go away for a short break over half term and found this accommodation. The communication and help from the owner was superb and gave us all the information we needed.
The site was easy to find and a short walk to the sea and only a 15 minute drive to Great Yarmouth. The site had all the facilities we needed and for a bigger shop, Lidl and Tesco were only a short drive.
The accommodation was spacious, even for the 8 of us who traveled. It had everything we needed, including an oven and 2 toilets, which was handy for our large group.
We would definitely like to visit again and would recommend to friends and family.
We stayed in this caravan in California Cliffs right at the end of October. It is very close to the beach, which was a big bonus for us. There is a great view of the Thames Array, and even better we saw a big seal playing in the surf!
Practically speaking, the caravan was big enough for four adults and two kids, and kept us pretty warm and comfortable. It was pretty clean with some signs of wear, but nothing major.Compared to other rental options in the area, it was very good value for money. There is a swimming pool on site and a bar area which while not our thing seemed pretty popular. Also a shop which was handy.
Overall, a great place for a budget weekend away.

Had a great weekend away really enjoyed it. Caravan was lovely and clean. Would highly recommended it and would also 100% book again
Having not stayed in a caravan since my childhood long ago it was with trepidation we booked our two night stay in late May.
A Great Yarmouth girl, I often return "home" to visit friends and family, recharge my batteries and get some sea air ! The caravan is situated on a friendly camp -site within metres of the lovely beach of Scratby, minutes by car to Great Yarmouth and a short drive to Norwich and the Norfolk Broads.
The caravan was spacious. We were a party of two adults and 3 teenagers and the clever layout meant there was plenty of space for us all . There was an additional loo too which was useful - The caravan was well equipped and we were pleased to be met with tea coffee and biscuits to welcome us after our journey. There were also games and DVD's for all age groups, not that we needed them as there is so much to do in the area. We went stock car racing and enjoyed an all you can eat Chinese meal at the China Diner in GY. We spent half a day at Time and Tide museum and did some lovely walks.We didn't use the on site pool and entertainment but may have done if the children had been younger.
There was no rowdiness ,we found it quiet and peaceful in the evening . We will no doubt return again for a short break.
