    Top site for fishing

A rural campsite near the city of the Norfolk Broads.

28 July 2015 - Directions send you along Long John Hill, this is now closed due to repairs on the railway bridge. Traffic is being diverted down Mansfield Lane. Continue on Mansfield Lane to a mini roundabout opposite the Cock Inn Pub, then turn Left and then immediate right onto Martineau Lane, the site is on the right hand side with double green gates.

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

Access to the riverbank for fishing during the fishing season (16 June to site closing date). Current Environment Agency rod licence is required before fishing can commence. The river can get very weedy in summer months. The site is close to the mainlin

Facilities were good and within easy distance for all.

This review is for Norwich

Facilities were good and within easy distance for all. A small friendly site that was quiet and peaceful when needed but still full of life. I slept very well. No noisy neighbours. Lovely dog walk near the river for the short walk and lots of opportunities nearby for a longer stretch. Close enough to the broads and the city. A place 5 mins away where the dog and I could paddle in the river. Idyllic. Great help from Paul Barnes when the jockey wheel clamp slipped as I was hitching before moving on. My folding camper ended up on the floor at the front but with his help it was all sorted in 5 minutes. Thanks Paul. I am still very new to all this but your calm approach gave me lots of confidence.

We've stayed twice in 6 weeks. Staff friendly & welcoming & on hand at all times.

This review is for Norwich

We've stayed twice in 6 weeks. Staff friendly & welcoming & on hand at all times. The pretty site is small, with nice level pitches. There's a little riverside area for picnic/fishing or dog walking. The site was spotless with not a blade of grass out of place ! Shower block kept clean at all times, water hot & great pressure. Site just 35 mins stroll into city centre & country walks within 10 mins of site entrance. We have only dropped a star from the review as there's no pay to late checkout facility so we have to pay a full extra night, when needing to leave just a few hours after 11am. Highly recommend this site ??
