My husband and I have spent a week with my mother and dog, in this beautiful lodge caravan . It was so relaxing as it felt like we were in the milddle of a wood . The trees surrounded the lodge and we got to see squirrels and even a beautiful deer wandering around the paths . We found the lodge to be of luxurious standard and was very clean and had been cleaned really well before we arrived .. which at the moment is a huge help .there was hand sanitiser for us to use too lots of little helpful Bits around . Cara Anne even asked if she could get some tea and milk Etc... in for us . She was a wonderful host, nothing was too much trouble for her . We will definitely be booking again next year, as I came back so relaxed as did the rest of us ... a luxury standard lodge van with everything 5 stars with the beautiful Gorleston on Sea 20 minutes away by car ... thank you Cara Anne It was a wonderful safe holiday !
Thank you for your kind words, you will be welcomed back anytime!
Family With Young Children
Date of stay - 25 Aug 2020 - 1 Sep 2020
We stayed at the end of August 2020 as a family 5. Myself, my wife and 3 young children, plus a dog. The accommodation was superb, spotlessly clean and a major plus for us was that the master bedroom had plenty of space for a travel cot to be put up for our youngest. Cara-anne the owner was very accommodating and ensured we had everything we required for a great holiday, we even used her advice of the local area for food restaurant recommendations. The location of the accommodation on the Wild Duck park was perfect. We had easy access to the all the facilities of the site, yet the van is tucked away on Pine Grove, in a peaceful secluded spot. Would highly recommend.
Thank you Matt, you are gladly welcomed back!

The calm of the woods but so close to the sea! We stayed here for 6 nights at the start of August and was the post lockdown escape that we longed for. The cabin is situated on the quietest side of the park, tucked away at the edge of the woods with only one neighbour across the way. We have worked in hotels all our lives and this was our first cabin van experience and were blown away at the home from home vibe and the high standard of the property. The modern cabin facilities were perfect for us with a full kitchen, double bedroom, even with an ensuite that had amazing water pressure! The cabin was spotlessly clean and included PPE kits and a really thoughtful welcome pack of essentials upon arrival. We really enjoyed spending the sunny afternoons and warm evenings on the veranda and walks through the woods, it really gave us the desired headspace as well as quality time to switch off from the outside world allowing us to relax and recharge. Our host, Cara-Anne, couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating throughout the booking and check in process (which was contact free), she was somewhat of a virtual concierge whilst we were there providing us with recommendations on local pubs and points of interest. This trip ticked every box for the staycation that we needed - safe, clean and modern in design - we will definitely be returning the next time we need to recharge and can't recommend the cabin in the woods enough!
So very glad you enjoyed your time at the CabinVan! Its fantastic to hear you got what you needed, you will be welcome back anytime!

Hi , we stayed here late July for 1 week with our dogs , the Caravan accepted pets which we were very surprised and pleased about , the accommodation was amazing ( this was the first time we had stayed in a caravan) , it was a true home from home , very clean and smart with all of the mod cons you could possibly need, the "CABIN VAN " is in a perfect location at the edge of a wood and after 4 months in lockdown it was like an oasis in the desert . The owner was very accommodating from start to finish , and everything ran smoothly from arrival to departure , all I can say is that I have re-booked for next year and cannot wait, it's there for all to enjoy and you will leave feeling very relaxed indeed , well done Cara Anne our host and thank you very much it was perfect .
Thank you for your review Dave, its always wonderful to have such great feedback! CabinVan would love to welcome you back anytime!
