    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.

One needs to take into account the low bridge approach to the site.

This review is for Norwich

One needs to take into account the low bridge approach to the site. Warm and friendly welcome upon arrival, facilities a little tired, but kept very clean and tidy. Norwich is easily accessed by bus, Wroxham and the broads a short drive away, but expect roads to be busy in and around the city. When on site take the time to walk down to the river (follow dog walk sign), very peaceful.

If you want to know what caravan sites were like 40 years ago, visit this one.

This review is for Norwich

If you want to know what caravan sites were like 40 years ago, visit this one. Half the site is uneven ground with sparse grass that gets muddy at the first fall of rain. The spotlessly clean unheated toilet block has two showers per gender, and the gents has only two WCs. This is for 50 pitches. If you go at a quiet time of year it might look like the photo in the book, but when we were there it was busy, and whilst no doubt observing the separation rules, units had less space around them than on most sites. This site bears no comparison to many excellent sites run by the club, and is the worst site we have stayed on in the last 20 years. On the plus side, it is very convenient for visiting Norwich.

This is an ideal site for visiting Norwich city and surround attractions.

This review is for Norwich

This is an ideal site for visiting Norwich city and surround attractions. Wishing walking distance of city centre but convenient bus service nearby. The managers were super helpful and very friendly who did a brilliant job of keeping the site clean and tidy. The riverside walk adjacent to the site is recommended. All members with with large units please be aware of low bridges on the access roads to the site. Best approach is from the eastern end of Martineau Lane off of the A146 (Barrett Road) (Low bridge in Long John Hill) Camping & Caravan Club Directors please note: The toilet and shower block is in desperate need of updating !!! A well managed site and thoroughly recommended.
