We are very fortunate to be sited on one of the larger woodland plots at Kelling Heath on the right hand side as you enter the park. We have had various caravans on this plot for the past 30 years. The whole family and many visitors have had so many happy memories here that we couldn't count. The plot has its own picnic area with a large bench and plenty of space to enjoy the peace and quiet. The plot is surrounded by rhododendron bushes, silver birch, oak, wild chestnut and pine trees. We are also close to the Weybourne ridge that gives us a sea view through the trees when the leaves fall in the autumn. The site centre is a five minute walk away and we are close to the North Norfolk railway 'halt' that serves Kelling Heath Caravan park with regular steam train services to Holt and Sheringham.
* Layout and caravan facilities
The bed in the ensuite is king sized. There is a large fridge/freezer in the kitchen. There is also a four ringed gas cooker and oven in the caravan. In the living room is a flat screen LCD TV with DVD player should you wish to bring your own DVDs. There is a second, smaller TV in the ensuite bedroom which also features its own WC and wash basin. The caravan also features a master bathroom with WC, wash basin and walk in shower.
The main room features a full length picture window which is a great vantage point to get up close and personal to a range of wildlife...feel free to bring your own bird seed for a ‘birds eye View’ of a whole variety of visitors. You can stand a metre away from squirrels and birds on our bird table. We also have many muntjacs come to say ‘hello’ at our picture window!
* Cleaning and Covid-19
With the current Covid-19 pandemic we will be deep cleaning the caravan ourselves in between guest visits. This involves wiping down ALL contactable surfaces, switches, door handles and appliance handles with a bleach based cleaning solution. Sanitising spray will be used to ensure the upmost cleanliness in our caravan. We advise guests to bring their own hand sanitiser to use for the duration of their stay. We provide cleaning products for the bathroom and kitchen but no toilet rolls, kitchen roll or washing up liquid during the pandemic. Inside our cosy caravan the duvets and pillows are provided but you will need to bring your own bed linen, towels and tea towels.
We take a £60 deposit on booking which isn’t refundable on cancellation unless there is an official lockdown. The balance for the hire of our caravan is paid 8 weeks before the start of your holiday. We currently don’t take a damage deposit as we rely on trust and our hirers replacing any breakages. However...if breakages aren’t replaced we may change this policy.
Should local lockdowns occur, we will do our best to provide alternate dates for affected hirers. In case of illness...we can only offer a refund if we can rebook the date requested. All hirers should take out additional insurance to cover their stay as we can only officially refund customers in the event of an official, government lockdown. We accept no responsibility for loss or injury during the hire of our caravan. Kelling Heath retain all documentation of the safety testing in our caravan which is updated each year to ensure you have a safe stay in our holiday home.
*Note* We are only available to take weekly bookings, Saturday to Saturday.

We keep coming back to Kelling Heath because it’s a beautiful place and this caravan occupies a unique secluded plot. The accommodation works well for us. It is a great base from which to explore and enjoy walks, cycle rides, superb local beaches and be totally immersed in the woodland setting. The wildlife is abundant and much more fun to watch than the telly. We love the caravan and look forward to holidays here.

A long time since we have had such a holiday but we were delighted with all aspects of it. The location was wonderful - a private woodland setting, the caravan itself had absolutley everything needed - plenty of room, excellent catering facilities, large TV and DVD player. Outside was a table and benches and a regular visit from a squirrel. The central facilities were more than adequate with a shop and bar and restaurant. We also enjoyed the indoor swimming pool. The area itself is beautifull, many walks locally and the near access to the North Norfolk coast. All in all highly commendable and we would certainly consider returning. Pauline the owner was very helpful throughtout.

Just come back from a weeks holiday in this caravan. we took our disabled grand daughter with us (14 years old). The caravan is well equipped and everything worked as we would have hoped. There is lots of space and it was very peaceful and quiet. The site is excellent and we were able to take our grand daughter swimming in the indoor pool where the staff were very helpful. Good facilities for disabled. The owner was very helpful and also replied very promptly to any queries I had. The booking process was very easy. Would definitely return.

Me and my family have just returned from a fantastic week at this caravan. We did not want to leave. The accommodation was clean and comfortable with all the facilities and utensils necessary for a self-catering stay. The caravan is very homely and relaxing, situated about 10 minutes away from the Village square at Kelling. Highlights for us were watching the variety of birds which visited daily and the peaceful location of the caravan. A huge thank you to the owner for accepting our booking. We would not hesitate to recommend this to others and sincerely hope to return again ourselves.

We have stayed at Kelling Heath many times, and this very spacious plot is in a lovely location, very tranquil. The caravan is very well presented, with good equipment provided. Having an en-suite to the main bedroom is an asset. There is a helpful welcome book in the caravan which also gives useful local information. We would definitely like to book again and yet again!

My family and I have stayed in the park countless times and I think that this is one of the nicest plots by far. The caravan was lovely, very spacious and clean with everything you would need for your holiday. The added bonus of games, books and cuddly toys (my four year old son fell in love with the fox) was a lovely surprise. Will definitely be planning a return visit.
