    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

As my wife and I were camping novices we found the staff to be very helpful and always keen to help. Not much in the way of shops nearby but Norwich town centre is a 30 minute walk or a bus ride from just outside the camp.

This review is for Norwich

Arrived on 18th July and found the site manager to be very friendly and helpful. A few nights later the noise in the caravan site was well above an acceptable level for a campsite. Someone was having some sort of celebration at the expense of everyone else. Granted by 11o'clock things began to quieten down but by that time everyone on the site had suffered a ruined night of their holiday how selfish can people be. I was surprised that the wardens allowed everyone to suffer because of one group of people. The next day everyone was moaning about the previous night being a disgrace especially the elderly couples who were there. I enentually found that there is one rule for some and a different set of rules for others. Not good. Also the shower facilities are simply awfull. The first time i went for a shower my door was kicked several times by a german women who wanted my shower as i was in the larger of the only two showers and the other is tiny. The second time i went for a shower the same woman used foul language and put two fingers up at me as she managed to get into the larger shower before me. Needless to say i did not enjoy my showering experience in the site. The type of people using the site is not my type and will i will not be staying in norwich site again. I'll tell you how bad it was i was counting down the days until it was time to go. We had booked on to stay at a site in stratford on avon and couldn't get the booking before the sunday 26th july so we had to stay put in this awfull site until it was time to escape. I did read the reviews on this site before i booked it but i made the mistake of only reading the good reviews and ignoring the bad ones. Dont make the same mistake that I did. I will be a lot more careful in future.

This review is for Norwich

We arrived around midday on Sunday 19th July to set up. The weather was superb - albeit a little windy for the awing - but the site was of a good size and relatively level. The reason for our visit was to see our daughter graduate from UEA (University of East Anglia). We advised the site owner that we were planning on a celebration get together with my mother and four of our daughters friends after the main event at the University. The site owner said this would be fine and was very pleased for us. We spent Monday out on our road bikes and did a 85 mile ride in a circular route riding along the cost and passing through Cromer before heading back along some beautiful quiet roads. Tuesday = Graduation day. Up at 6.30am preparing the food for the BBQ whist hubby decorated the awning. Set off to the Uni at 1pm. Lots of waiting around at UEA and after photos etc did not get back to Campsite Until after 7pm. Five very hungry teenagers, grandmother and hubby now to feed. Everyone had a great time - with drinks flowing, BBQ chicken & salmon, cake and candles, champagne, speeches etc. Teenagers left site at 10.30pm after waiting 15 mins for the taxi. To continue their celebrations in central Norwich. But a great time was had by all. I would like to thank the staff at the Norwich site for letting us celebrate this special time with our daughter and her friends. Obviously with five Uni students they were not the most quiet but thank you to all those fellow campers for letting us enjoy this moment.
