    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.

Beautiful quiet site by the river. Well-maintained grounds.

This review is for Norwich

Beautiful quiet site by the river. Well-maintained grounds. 2017 site managers/assistants amongst the best in the club. Friendly, helpful, motivated, industrious. Facilities well-maintained. Only minus is that bathrooms are badly laid out; floors impossible to keep clean and inadequate number of showers in peak season. Walking distance to bus stop to city, but no service on Sundays. Excellent chippie nearby. Beware 2 of 3 access roads have low bridges, but easy via Mansfield Lane.

site is ideal for visiting Norwich with 25 min walk or bus it in.

This review is for Norwich

site is ideal for visiting Norwich with 25 min walk or bus it in. There is a small dog walk on site near a river which is useful and then a little further afield access to river and walk to whitlingham broads and country park. At the moment the pub next door is closed, fish and chip takeaway was good. Be aware the 2 low bridges that might be too low for motorhome! Yes there is noise from trains as site is between two lines but did not find them too intrusive.

One of the nicest Camping and caravanning sites we've stayed on. Great dog walk by the river.

This review is for Norwich

One of the nicest Camping and caravanning sites we've stayed on. Great dog walk by the river. Secluded feel to the site, but only minutes from excellent shops and and an easy walk into Norwich. Sadly the pub round the corner was closed, hopefully it will re-open? We'll definitely be back for another stay.

Difficult access for motorhomes.

This review is for Norwich

Difficult access for motorhomes. Two low bridges to access the site so caution required if using a motorhome. The big problem is that the higher of the two bridges, and the one we had to use, was only accessible from A140 in one direction. Reaching it from the city requires a big detour which nearly saw us locked out for the night. The overnight car park is both very small and sloping, and a 4wd vehicle was parked in it every night so we would not have been able to use it. No motorhome service point. Freezing cold shower block. Nice to be able to walk into the city along a pleasant footpath. Some hard standings would be appreciated by motorhome users.
