Spoonbill Drift Touring Park

About Spoonbill Drift Touring Park

Our impressive Spoonbill Drift touring park at Pinewoods opened in April 2017. Sitting on the edge of the main Pinewoods site, it offers 116 spacious pitches for touring caravans and motor homes. It is adjacent to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with big open views of the marshland countryside, Holkham National Nature Reserve and a wide expansive view back towards Wells town. Spoonbill Drift has been designed to minimise it’s impact on the landscape both environmentally and visually with the maximum amount of large accessible pitches and the minimum amount of road.

The pitches themselves are neatly maintained and comprise of a 3 metre by 9 metre fibre-reinforced grass standing area with polyethylene porous grid paving. Each pitch has electricity, water and grey water waste points as standard.

We allow the spaces between pitches and access road to grow as wild and natural grassland to encourage wildlife bio-diversity. This helps support the park’s other use as a traditional grazing ground for over-wintering flocks of Brent, Pink-footed Geese and Widgeon who arrive long after our summer guests have departed.

For the exclusive use of our touring park guests via a personal key card, the Spoonbill Drift touring park has two award winning state-of-the-art amenity blocks, complete with toilets, showers, washing up facilities and launderettes. Please note these are closed from 31st October.

Please advise one of the Reception Team at check-in that you require access to the accessible showers and toilets so that your personal key card can be configured accordingly. Please note these are closed during the Autumn and Winter months.

We do not allow tents, trailer tents or folding campers to be pitched with touring caravans or next to camper vans on our touring pitches. This is in order to comply with Fire Regulations and our Site Licence.
