Not sure it is the best campsite...but we went to Hemsby last year and it was fabulous
clean , beautyful clean beaches in walkging distance, Bar/Restaurant, and about 20 mins away from Great Yarmouth

Sorry - but I have no intention of doing anythink near rustic,

I jsut don't know where to start. I find the reviews on UKcampsite good if you have a campsite in mind....but not good for browsing/filtering the best campsites.

with the exception of a beach a short drive (which i would be ambivalent to) my favourite sites wouldnt have any of the facilities in your list!

<My list wasn't a must have list, I would like some of them was just intended as a way to see what sort of site it is....Yes wasn't necessarily the desired answer>

Sandy Balls in New Forest has all your wishlist apart from being very close to a beach.

FairLadyRantALot Sun 05-Jul-09 15:18:35 is the campsite I was talking about
It is honestly brilliant

Excepting abeach I would suggest Broadway House in Somerset (Cheddar)- scores well on all others (Beach at brean not that far away but avoid Burnham)- not cheap but nice.

Sandy Balls also nice (off there in 13 days grin) but can be hard to get a pitch main season, we book in January- worth it though

Isle Of Wight- bit holiday park-style but we like it, considerr NOdeas Point: no outdoor pool but beach is a 30 second stroll which more than compensates

very familiar with the Yarmouth area, have book marked the hemsby one.

i had seen Nodes point and thought it looked OK...but my tent is too big for their standard pitch so i have to make sure I book a long way in advance....again bookmarked as it looks ideal.

i also love Cheddar (but what is wrong with Burnham? We had a good holiday there. Is Brean significantly better?)

<Have bookmarked some of he others too...but not hte rustic one grin - sorry>

We did Broadway House at the start of the camping season (April). In April it was lovely as there were about 10 other people there, the site is massive though and I can't imagine going back in the height of summer.
It was a very well kept site, clean, good toilet facilities, washing up etc. We didn't use any of the bar/entertainment/pool facilities because it isn't our 'thing' but they looked fine.
I would go back off season again though.

Our normal camping places involve a field and a toilet block!
