Shop Renovations

Monday, January 25th, 2016

It’s been a busy winter here at Caravan Accessory Shop and we’re trying to cram lots of things in before the summer rush!

Our new project is Renovating The Shop Floor at our Shop in West Runton, Norfolk.

As we moved our office and online packaging area to our new Warehouse last year, the space left in the back room of the shop was getting cluttered with boxes and coffee mugs – something had to be done!

So we’re clearing and decluttering, it feels like spring cleaning (despite the frost outside)!

Shortly, a stud wall is going to be removed and then, as if by magic, we will have a whole new section of shop floor available for NEW Products and displays of large or bulky items.

Our shop has expanded gradually since we moved in in December 2009 and this expansion will make it the biggest it probably ever can be. But never say never!

There’s very good news for our regulars – Caravan Accessory Shop will be opening normal hours all throughout the work.

We’re hoping that everything will be finished, neatly set up and gleaming ready for Easter. So if you’re planning to visit the North Norfolk Coast for your holidays this year, pop in and see the changes!

Happy Caravanning


Great Yarmouth Caravans

If you’re thinking of heading off to Great Yarmouth Caravans to visit the Accessory Shop, we regret to inform you that their shop has now closed.

(However their New and Used Caravan business is still going strong – see their website for some great quality Static Caravans here!)

But don’t fear! We at the Caravan Accessory Shop (West Runton, near Cromer, Norfolk) have purchased their leftover stock, topping up some of our stock levels and giving us a few new products for our shelves as well.

So if there’s anything you were after, give us a call on 01263 837482 and we will try and help you out. You can purchase items in our Shop (directions here) or online on our Website for postage all over the UK and most countries Worldwide.

Christmas Posting

Thursday, December 17th, 2015

Don’t forget the last posting day for Royal Mail 1st Class is Monday 21st December (next Monday!) BUT please remember this is NOT a guaranteed ‘by Christmas’ service!

Order in stock items over the weekend for despatch on Monday. We will do our best to despatch as much as we can but can’t guarantee posting/delivery by Christmas.

Don’t forget we also have a Courier option which you can select at checkout on our website. This is for a next day (from despatch, not ordering), tracked service but is also not guaranteed. Monday 21st December is also their last date for normal service (should be with you Tuesday if despatched Monday).

Please order before Monday for best chances of despatch on Monday! This is a very busy time for all of us here, Royal Mail and our Couriers.

Thank you for all your orders and Merry Christmas to all of you!


Light Up Your Life

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015



Today is our occasional Shop Assistant Ed’s Birthday!

Despite being a questionable employee (he seems to only work one day a year and sometimes sells things which we don’t even stock… to everyone’s confusion) everyone at Caravan Accessory Shop is rather fond of him.

So in his honour I present… A Light Special.

Anyone who knows Ed will know why it’s a Light Special, but in case you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting him yet, here’s his bio from our “Meet The Staff” page…



Ed – Relief Shop Assistant

Ed joined the team in 2011. He is great to have around the place and comes back to work at the Caravan Accessory Shop at least one day a year!

Favourite Product: “I love LED lights so I have LED awning lights (with add-on pack), a Lumi LED Rechargeable light, several LED hook lights and LED tent pegs that I take camping with me. You can see my tent from space!”



I expect you understand now. Lights, especially LED, light up his life.

This blog post could actually be used as his Birthday wish list.


So in no particular order – some of our favourite lights!


16 LED Lantern



Chinese LED Lantern



Firefly LED Capsule Lantern







Camping Table Lamp





Light Bulb Tent Light



Cigar Socket Rechargeable Torch



Stellar LED Head Torch




Party Glow Stick



Disco Mini LED Lamp



Apollo 2 Light Port – Rechargeable LED Lantern





Happy Birthday Ed!

The Ultimate Gift Guide – Kids!

Thursday, November 19th, 2015

Young ‘uns

Whether it’s because you drag them along with you to “get away from the TV” or you’re racing to keep up with them on their bikes we’ve got something for your kids this Christmas.

This junior airbed is a handy addition for tents, awning annexes and relatives living room floors. Tested this autumn by the Caravan Accessory Shop sub contracted toddler, Freddy (16 months), who rated it “better than a hotel travel cot” (he slept nearly all night in it – a miracle!)






The Pink Dotty and Bugs sleeping bags are junior sized, so they will be snug as bugs and the bags fold away smaller – win win!



I Spy Camping (other titles available) is always a hit, keeping the kids entertained and buying the parents some time to relax… or get involved as well. Warning: Can get very competitive!




Animal torches are always popular. Designed for kids, these have pump handles to create energy for light. Ideal for reading, finding your way to the loo in the dark and midnight feasts!




We have a great selection of sledges suitable from ages 2+. Fun for all the family!





Now, if they’re off to a festival next spring or summer can I be painfully honest? They’re not that interested in hearing about the tales of your youth, when you were a festival attending, long haired, flares wearing hipster. Sorry. However they WILL be very interested in these gifts…



The OLPRO Knightwick 3 berth tent is the ultimate in festival comfort! Spacious, waterproof (5000 h/h), quick and easy to pitch… What more could they want?



It’s not pretty… but it’s practical! They might wrinkle their nose when they unwrap it, but they’ll be grateful when they see the size of the queues! The eloquently named Need-a-Loo could well be a hit this Christmas.



It was impossible to pick one rucksack – so here’s link to our whole collection! The humble rucksack is an ever useful piece of kit for teenagers. College books? Sleepover stuff? Numerous changes of clothes? Festival packing? Holiday? Hiking? It’s sorted with a ruck sack!



Encourage them to be eco-friendly (and not ask for driving lessons for a little bit longer) by making cycling more pleasant, with this waterproof cycle cover. A dry seat makes for a happy ride.



If they’re moving out next year (or perhaps they already have) The Single Electric Hob is ideal for their student residence. Thermostatic control from simmer to boil, and just 1000w.



We hope you enjoyed the Ultimate Gift Guide for Kids!


All products and more available on our website!



Christmas is on it’s way!

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

… We’re very excited here at the Caravan Accessory Shop!

Not long now until we can put up the tree, deck the office out in tinsel and change the phone ringer to “We Wish you a Merry Christmas!

(OK, that last one’s probably not going to happen.)

If I can persuade Bruce to wear a Santa hat while serving customers it’ll be the best year yet.

We’ll have more Gift Guides coming soon, but in the meantime you can always check out our GIFT category on our website. So many ideas, from stocking fillers right up to Big Gifts.

We now also do Gift Vouchers! Online or Paper, for any value you want! Email us at or pop into the shop to get one.














The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide – Dad

Thursday, November 5th, 2015

The first of our Ultimate Christmas Gift Guides! This post is all about the top man in everyone’s life… Good old Dad!

If you have a Caravan, Camping or Outdoor Enthusiast Dad here are our top picks to make his Christmas the best in 2015…


Stocking Fillers

Easy access to their favourite can of drink with the Table Clip








All Dads are Tennis Pros with our ever popular Executioner









If he hasn’t got the real thing, indulge his VW passion a little with this 1962 Model



If he’s a bit of a Chef

This Cadac BBQ is the top choice for gourmet caravanners everywhere – it’s a gas-powered, portable 3-in-1 outdoor cooking system.  He’ll be the envy of the whole campsite!





The Highlander Blade Fast Boil Stove is an incredible stove which can boil a litre of water in under three minutes! Ideal for Dads who need their early morning cup of tea – NOW!





This Dad’s no Technophobe

This In Car Digital Video Recorder is uber cool. Record up to 16 hours of journey time. The recorder features night vision and motion sensing activation so can be used on every journey.




If your Dad doesn’t ever want to miss a game (or an episode of Strictly…) then this is the treat for him. The 21.5″ Vision Plus Digital TV is specially designed for life on the move and has a built in DVD player as well.





Eco Warriors

Eco Dad loves a solar panel, so how about a reliable and robust Solar Hub to provide illumination and power when and where you need it.



Light up his Christmas with The LUMI USB – a super bright rechargeable LED light for use anywhere without mains power. LUMI includes a built in Li-ion battery that, when fully charged via USB, will give up to 8 hours of light.




Coming soon… The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide for Mums!
