I have never been camping! What should I expect?
Expect freedom with a back to nature feel, enjoy snuggling down with your friends and family and listening to the nighttime woodland sounds. Camping is all about a simple life and being outdoors so don’t worry what the weather will be like, you don’t need all the stresses of home life.
But what if it rains?
We cant predict the great British weather but if it rains you can hunker down in your tent and enjoy listing to the patter of raindrops on canvas! If all else fails it is really easy to escape into Norwich city for plenty of indoor fun; weather proof camping at its best
Can we re-freeze our freezer packs? We need to keep the cheese cold!
Yes! We have a freezer available in our reception where you can refreeze your packs or rent ours for a small fee. We also sell ice cubes from reception. We do not have any other cold storage onsite so bring along your cool box
Can we swim in the broad?
Whitlingham Great Broad is a safe haven for boating and watersports so unfortunately only your pooches can take a dip here. However you can take to the water in a kayak, canoe paddle board or solar boat. And there is a local swimming pool or an outdoor lido just a short drive away. What about fishing? Not at present, however the River Yare runs through the country park and can be fished with the normal rod licenses. There are also stocked fishing pools locally try this website for ideas.
Do I have to book? Cant’ I just turn up on site? During peak periods the site can fill up, and we don’t like to overcrowd our green space. So it is always best to at least phone ahead to check availability, this way you could avoid a wasted journey
We want to camp alongside our friends - can we pitch together? yes - at the time of booking just choose the amount of pitches you need, by selecting the 'book several units' button on booking. We cannot guarentee pitches together for individual pitch bookings or for bookings through 3rd party sites. For group payment plans, or bookings over 3 tents/10 people please email us
Can I bring along my friends? Please enquire before booking about day guests as this is not always possible, we do have to adhere to site capacities for the comfort of all. All campers and visitors where availible must be prebooked in advance
I have a touring caravan – can I bring this to site? No sorry we do not accept caravans to our site at all. This is due to planning permissions and the location of our site.
So you only accept only small motorhomes, how small does it have to be and why? We only accept smaller motorhomes (approx. 4 berth/6metres) something along the lines of a VW campervan or ‘surf bus’ . Our camping field is grassed and we do not have hardstanding, so larger heaver motorhomes can churn this up.
Do you have electrical hook up? No, sorry we do not have any electrical points on site so best to leave the electricals at home. We do provide a mobile phone charging service from our reception for a small fee (currently suspended during the pandemic) – bring along your charger for this.
