    Top site for fishing

A rural campsite near the city of the Norfolk Broads.

A city campsite with a rural feel describes our Norwich Club campsite. It commands a beautiful spot next to a river with walks and fishing along the banks. Its back-to-nature feel is enhanced by a small holding with chickens and geese right next door.

It’s a fairly secluded and quiet campsite and well laid out with 50 grass pitches and well maintained facilities.

This campsite is in easy reach of the city of Norwich by bike, a lovely walk along the old railway line or by bus which stops a quarter of a mile from the site. Norwich is famed for its castle and cathedral and it has more medieval churches than any other city in Western Europe. Four large malls will satisfy the fussiest shopper and there are numerous places to eat and drink.

There are walking and cycling opportunities in Whitlingham Country Park, one-and-a-half miles from the campsite. And, as well as being a haven for wildlife, there’s also a watersports centre offering windsurfing, sailing and kayaking.

The Norfolk Broads, Britain’s largest protected wetland, is within easy reach of the campsite and is home to some of the country’s rarest plants and wildlife.

Worth Noting

If approaching from Long John Hill there is a railway bridge of 2.9 meters height limit. If concerned you should approach via Mansfield Lane instead, continue to the mini roundabout opposite the Cock Inn Pub, then turn Left and then immediate right onto Martineau Lane.

Access to the riverbank for fishing during the fishing season (16 Jun to 6th Nov). Current Environment Agency rod licence is required. The river can get very weedy in summer months.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Eat Local

There is a farmers’ market in Gentlemans Walk in Norwich city centre on the first and third Sundays of the month.

This review is for Norwich

The staff were very welcoming and the facilities were clean however the site was very busy for the weekend, and the dated facilities (showers and toilets )could not cope with peak time demand. I would say they are the worst I have experienced in 9 years of being a member.

This was a 2 night weekender for my wife and I along with family and friends.

This review is for Norwich

This was a 2 night weekender for my wife and I along with family and friends. The site is within easy access to Norwich city centre and the Norwich football ground and Riverside complex. Onsite facilities were basic essentials with disabled access: Wash rooms, washing-up room and a small essential food store in the office. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly and maintained the site to a high level of appearance and cleanliness. The only negatives were:- 1. The facilities although well maintained and clean were starting to look a little dated and would benefit some updating. 2. The access to wifi (a paid for additional service) was hit and miss and range limited by foliage. This could be improved by elevating the antennae. 3. The site sits bordered between two train lines to and from Norwich railway station and the noise from this, although not overly intrusive, may not suite those used to a quieter environment. This is not a issue during sleeping hours. All-in-all though a pleasant and enjoyable visit and a big thank you to the management team.
