Thinking of a few days in Norfolk and Suffolk week after next. Looking for pretty walks, quiet, lovely villages so any suggestions and recommendations of sites appreciated please. Thanks.

Hi Groundhog

Don't know if you are looking for coastal or more inland?

This one seems popular and is located within a stones throw of ex prime minster John Majors residence (other side of the road) hugegrins
Also, there are some lovely coastline and villages nearby, Blakeney, Cley Windmill and marshes (RSPB), and the Weybourne to Sheringham Steam Railway just a few mins down the lane etc

Here is another on our doorstep which might be of interest, and is pictured on the front cover of the "Seaview Camping Britain" by Vicarious Books (the author is a member on here)

Thanks for the advice, much appreciated, really looking at the Broadland areas as we enjoy sailing and messing about on boats. Must go to Sandringham as well. I had also picked from the net four places but know little about the areas, the access etc - you may know some of them.

Breckland Meadows - Swaffham
Stoney Brook & Two Mills - North Walsham
Colks Farm CL - Cottishall

The last one is by the Bure Valley Steam Railway I believe

All advice appreciated, this will be our first outing in our new van and although we have been motorhomers for many years we have never been to this area.It is funny how you can travel all over the World yet still miss the best bits on offer just down the road.

Another you could try is the Waveney River Centre, "the Broads' multi-award winning Holiday Park & Marina, set in the beautiful surroundings of South Norfolk's Waveney Valley, with stunning south and west facing views across marshes and river. The Park is a wildlife haven, where you can spend hours watching birds, insects and other wildlife, or venture further along the river by day cruiser or canoe" this is a lovely site over looking a marina on the broads. We stayed there in the off season last year and there was renovation work going on which spoiled what otherwise would have been a fantastic location. It still hasn't put us off going back though and I expect with the changes to the pitches it's now even better.
