We had a lovely sunny and warm weekend here during the National Petanque event.
The woodland walk/jog of 1K was stunning, and was enhanced by the swathes of bluebells under the trees.
Facilities were OK. I say OK because one shower block had only cold water and an incredibly noisy expelair. I also cannot understand why guests walk dirty shoes into the shower/toilet area when it would be so easy to take them off and leave them at the door. This obviously resulted in very muddy and dirty floors in those areas.
Washing up facilities in a garden shed were a little basic and the sink was low.
The swimming pool was nice, but there were fumes which made one cough when you first entered. Also you cannot swim if you are alone in the pool which I found a little OTT on the elf and safety side.
Generally the facilities were kept clean and well maintained.
All in all, Broadlands is a very picturesque and peaceful place to stay.

nice surroundings but apart form a few people we found it to be quite unfriendly, the usual members click who just tolerate the holiday makers i guess because of the extra income to the club.
clubhouse only open on a Saturday and when they had a band come to play we were asked by members to leave the table we were on as they had put their plastic beakers on the table to show that they had reserved it, brings to mind of towels on sunbeds. caravans bit past their sell by date.

We have been a few times, though not in the last couple of years. Always good fun. Lovely woodland walks, a great pool and friendly atmosphere. About time fir another visit.

I have been three times and look forward to going again this summer. I have found everyone helpful and friendly. The pool is always warm. The site is very relaxing away from the outside world. You can join in games most days if you want to or sit and watch.

I brought up by parents who told me that if you haven't anything nice to say say nothing. I'm saying nothing.

We were there for a week in the middle of July and loved it. Stayed in our old camper van. Site very clean and quite as kids still at school. Pool warm and relaxing. Dog loved his walk through woods round the perimeter of site, so nice without restrictions of clothes. Everyone very friendly. Meals in Karen's cafe lovely and she is very friendly. Will go again when children back at school. Highly recommend. Broadlands Stoke Holy Cross Norfolk. Mike and Helen Edwards.

This place is like a little paradise in the middle of a mad world. As soon as you arrive, it feels welcoming and relaxing. The camping fields are perfect, being flat and grassed. The facilities are very good. Small cafe, big covered pool, nice toilet and shower block, and reasonably priced even in the middle of school holidays. With a bus stop into Norwich just a few minutes walk away, it never feels isolated. The people are all friendly, and despite what someone else posted, a wide age range. Well done Broadlands, I think you have got it just right!

I spent a few days there I own a tent can't say I was over happy on areas for tents
The small cafe was fine but could be better, the pool was nice but found some of the people there not that friendly But it may just be a off day ?

Not sure if Jack has visited many UK naturist destinations (re previous post).
Have just come back from Broadlands having spent best part of a week at the site. Have to say that we found the people to be friendly, the pool was warmer than many I have swam in and is covered.
Two good miniten courts,and boules area with regular games taking place.
The grounds good re tent pegs.
Broadlands is worth a look.
