Mature Couple

Site lived up to its name - the barn owl circled around the field every morning, even as late as 11 am. Access to the site was very good, but getting back on to the A47 was frustrating - impossible to turn right and a long wait to turn left. Plenty of space, flat, helpful owners, some road noise but not intrusive.

A very special and relaxing site.

We stayed at Owl Meadow for 10 nights in May 2017 and had a wonderful stay. The site is very easily located and accessible. the owners are lovely people, very welcoming and helpful. The wildlife around the site made it a special place to wind down and relax. The Barn Owl visiting each evening was fabulous. We left for home and were already planning our next visit, we enjoyed it so much. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home.

Fabulous site

On arrival met by owners lovely lovely friendly people. We had motorhome so parked on the hard standing although we could have parked on grass if wanted. Beautiful site and we were pleased to see the Owl visit us daily. Amazing sight. Wished we stayed instead of moving to Great Yarmouth. Easy to visit Wroxham and the Broads. I wish the owners good luck for the future.

Owl Meadow by name and an Owl Meadow it was

Just back from this lovely site, after an 11 day stay, originally booked for 7 but stayed longer, we were lucky and had the whole site to ourselves for a while, just watching the wildlife, Pheasants, Partridge, the acrobatic Swallows, which were flying just in front of the awning, the hedgehogs that come out at night and the amazing Barn Owl, which you could almost set your clock by in the evening, coming and hunting in the wild flower meadow that lies in front of the pitches. There are some really easy, flat walks directly from the site, the grass is mowed low and all cuttings picked up. It is easy to get to much of the Broads from the site, Wroxham, Potter Higham, Caister and Saltham to name such a few, Fairhavem Water Gardens is also well worth a visit. This site is one to which we will return again.

Location Broads Location

If you want easy access to explore the Norfolk Broads then this is the location. You can choose the River Bure to the north of the A47 or the River Yare to the south of the A47 plus all the Broads associated with both rivers. Easy access to Norwich and Great Yarmouth along the A47. Nigel and Georgina will make you feel very welcome and help you find what you are looking for in Norfolk. Fantastic villages to explore all around and great public houses to try the local beverages. If you want nature then you've come to the right area with RSPB Strumpshaw Nature reserve and Norfolk Wildlife Trusts Upton Marshes both real gems within an easy few miles drive away. On the site itself we had deer, and every night a Barn Owl visited us in the field. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay... we will return.
