‘It was good value for money and we were confident about the preparations made to keep customers safe from CV19.’

Name: Keely

Date of Stay: Saturday 31st August 2019 for one night.

 

‘Our initial stay at Fakenham Racecourse was booked for Saturday 24th August.  On arrival we encountered problems with the electrics in our caravan, despite our best efforts and with much help and support from the staff on site, we were sadly unable to stay and after only one hour we were forced to return home.

Thankfully we were allowed to re-schedule our visit at no extra charge to the following week.  The campsite is basic but we found the facilities to be clean and staff members very friendly and helpful.  There are many things to do in and around the surrounding area of the campsite itself, and if a basic base is all that is needed then we would recommend Fakenham Racecourse.  We will be returning very soon.’

‘Just about the cleanest, quietest,friendliest, best kept site we’ve had the good fortune to find in about 30 years of caravanning.

Fakenham is an interesting and charming small town, which is adequately provided for with a number of both private shops, supermarkets, and a wonderful Thursday Market, all of which is within an easy and pleasant riverside walk from your pitch at the Racecourse.
Better not forget to mention, the excellent chocolate factory has now opened a ‘mis-shapes’ shop in town, with appropriate prices,yet another temptation!’
