    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

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

A 2 night stay only, but it was perfect for getting into Norwich on the bus.

This review is for Norwich

A 2 night stay only, but it was perfect for getting into Norwich on the bus. I felt the site was a bit cramped but it is in a city location. The staff were helpful and kept a clean site. My pitch was sloping so ramps were needed. This applied to quite a few pitches. I had to go to Cambridge one evening and found a train/taxi combination easier than driving. Norwich is a pleasant city to explore, though I would go elsewhere to see the Broads.

Stayed her for 4 nights recently. Very pleasant site.

This review is for Norwich

Stayed her for 4 nights recently. Very pleasant site. Altho' in Norwich it felt secluded being in a walled garden. We walked to and from Norwich easily along the public path. Yes the site needs some refurbishing. I agree one and a half showers is not good enough and I'm told by my other half the CDP was dreadful, certainly not up to standard. Pity the site manager who has to keep it in order.

Spent nine nights at Norwich with my wife, a very pleasant peaceful break.

This review is for Norwich

Spent nine nights at Norwich with my wife, a very pleasant peaceful break. We were warmly welcomed by Steve the very helpful site warden who explained all about the site to us, pointing out the local bus routes which are close to the site, the quickest way to walk into Norwich (about 20 - 25 minutes), the very local pub, local shops, walks etc. Steve gave us a choice of pitches, we chose one fairly close to the site amenities which where kept very clean. Also plenty of hot water for showers, pot washing etc. There are only 2 showers in each male / female wash area but this was adequate and we never found ourselves waiting in queues despite the site been fairly busy. We found the site to be quite & peaceful, there is no play area for children so the site may not be ideal for family's with young children. The site is ideal for those wanting to visit Norwich with plenty of buses going into the city, or you could easily walk or cycle into the city, or a very short car ride. The east coast Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft & Southwold are easily accessible less than 25 miles away, the broads even closer. There are also many walks close by with cycle routes also being available. All in all we found the site to be just right for us and we shall be returning again soon.

Having just bought a new caravan and joined the club, we were keen to spend a few nights away.

This review is for Norwich

Having just bought a new caravan and joined the club, we were keen to spend a few nights away. We chose this site in order to explore a different area of Norfolk to our usual (non-C&CC) site near Fakenham. This site suffers from its location in a fairly grotty part of Norwich (you can see the rather ugly high rise 60's county council offices from the site), though to be fair the atmosphere once on site is pleasant, disturbed occasionally by the passing high speed trains. The dog walk along the river was adequate, but not for a decent bounce. Although a town site, you probably need to take the car out to explore the city properly. This was our first experience of a club site and although we weren't put off, we have since found that other club sites have an overall nicer feel to them and meet our needs more closely.
