Since discovering Mumsnet I rarely look up anything before asking here first - the answers are usually quicker, clearer, and far more entertaining on Mumsnet!

But that is one of the sites I'm researching.

We have stayed at 2 campsites in Norfolk, both of which I'd recommend. The first is Old Brick Kilns at Barney which isn't far from Fakenham And the other is Deers Glade which is near Hanworth. Both are very well kept sites with nice clean loos and showers. Hope this helps

Have been to loads in France. We love Le Vieux Port in Gascony, & Les Charmettes on the Med. Carisma hols only do sites walkeable to the beach. Matthews hols are v.good value & have a good chat forum about everybodies sites

So far I haven't been able to find anywhere in northern France that does tent camping - they all seem to be caravans of one sort or another. Dh doesn't want to drive far, so I imagine Brittany or Channel coast would be suitable, but inland would be fine if there was a lake. Anyone know of such a place?

As for Norfolk, dh has found a couple he likes:
Pinewoods and
Searles but I'm concerned that Pinewoods' toilets/washing facilities don't sound too nice (or look too frequent on the map) and it sounds a bit cramped, and that at Searles it sounds like each pitch is isolated by hedging from the next - I liked the group pitching at Hurley Riverside Park, which made a nice big safe supervisable green field for children to play in and make friends. Anyone been to either Pinewoods or Searles?

The Parc des Alicourts is one that everyone recommends, driveable easily in a day from Calais (430km).

Alan Rogers review all European campsite. This link is for Northern France.

I second Parc des Allicourts - wonderful site

but this is also good in Brittany

We've booked! We're going to Jablines, just east of Paris. Anyone know it?

Is it too late for you to go to Norfolk? My favourite campsite is at Stiffkey on the North Norfolk coast - it is basic but very clean and is right on the marshes so great for the kids - crabbing, getting muddy, swimming etc.

That site was on our shortlist, but we decided to be 'adventurous' and go abroad.
