“Great for dogs”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

This was a late idea for an Easter break with the family (all adults).
Did not expect a lot so went with reservations after reading reviews but was okay with first impressions off the site. The area around Bacton suffered during the winter storms and damage is still to be seen, this park looks to have survived but surrounding cliff damage is very evident and areas look quite dangerous, the locals deserve praise for the work going on to restore the area for the summer months.
Back to the park, our caravan was pretty basic but having a small dog this is what you get, it was getting a bit dated but I suppose people with dogs get the older units.
All in all it was okay but could have done with a good clean.
Tried the on site club one night, was not impressed but this is probably a typical British caravan park.
The grounds are good and there is access to the beach which is dog friendly, you can walk for miles on low tide either way, yes there is the gas depot which is visible but to be honest is no bother, it is a couple of fields away.
If you are looking for a cheap break with a dog this is fine providing you can accept an average sort of place.
North Norfolk is a lovely are worth exploring but personally I would prefer to be around the Blakeney area.

Arrived in August and have just got round to writing this review. On arrival at the park the member of staff (or so I thought was a member of staff cause she was sat behind the desk) checked me in, when I asked her which caravan it was her reply was I don't know I don't work here! After that when I entered the caravan myself and my wife were disgusted it was filthy. Dirty bed sheets, hairs in the bathroom, cobwebs from the lamp shades, also on closer inspection the boiler was a death trap!!!! To cut a very long storey short we
tried contacting the staff on the emergency numbers as it was a Sunday and no one was about and got no answer. So decided the safest thing to do was to go 190miles back home. When we contacted Hoseason's the response from the management of castaways was laughable basically calling us liars. Upon providing photographic evidence to Hoseason's we received a refunded for the whole holiday. That pretty much sums up Hoseason's confidence in this holiday park.

After booking at Castaways I looked on googlemaps for the location of the park and was disappointed to see the gas plant next door however we were absolutely blown away by the parks presentation, staffs friendliness and fantastic dog friendly walks and beach. The gas plant was far enough away to not spoil our stay. The club house is nice and you can take your dog in with you. We stayed in a basic caravan which we found to be clean, comfortable and well equiped. We will definitely be staying again, it was our dogs first holiday and they abolutely loved it.

The Burns family visited Castaways for a weeks' holiday on 10th August 2013. The site was small but immaculate, and although our caravan was right next to the Jolly Roger club, there was no noise at all. Access to the stunning beach was the highlight, where many a happy hour was spent. The owners could not be more helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We are regular visitors to Norfolk, but have not visited the north of the region before, and found that access to Sheringham, Holt and Cromer etc was easy from this site.

We would definitely visit again!

Arrived for a weeks break on 19th August , was happy with the friendly staff and caravan was alright . Beach was excellent and kids really enjoyed the close proximity to the caravan site to the beach . Although you had to be back at caravan site before high tide as steps get cut off .
Lovely chip shop in the town , but close to the Bacton Gas Refinery but this did not affect the stay one bit.
