Why stay here ...

David and Julia welcome you to Broadmarsh Farm.

Our CL is situated on a working farm in the village of Great Ellingham, 17 miles south of Norwich. Our south facing 3/4 of an acre site has a mixture of hardstanding and grass pitches, all of which have views across our fields and are individually serviced with electric and water.

We welcome dogs; however we do ask that visitors are considerate of others and ensure they clear up after their dogs and keep them on a lead, we have some lovely walks in the area for your pets.

Families are welcome but please be aware we have unfenced water close to the CL. We have a range of amenities close by; within 3/4 of a mile is our village shop, post office and pub. Attleborough is our nearest town, just 2 miles away with a Sainsbury's and Lidl supermarket, as well as a variety of independent shops.

As we are 2 miles from the A11, there is easy access to the Norfolk coast, the city and of course the beautiful Norfolk Broads.

We are close to Thetford Forest with its picnic areas, dog walks and activities such as Go ape, Segway hire, walking/cycling trails. We are 9 miles from Banham Zoo, 6 miles from Snetterton Race course and 8 miles from Old Buckenham Airfield with its annual air show and other events throughout the year. There are also several fishing lakes and golf courses nearby. We have some lovely pubs and restaurants, as well as places to eat like Peter Beales Rose Gardens, The English Whisky Distillery and the coffee lounge and carvery at Breckland Lodge to name a few.

We look forward to meeting you at our CL.

Fantastic CL site

What a fantastic CL site with wonderful owners David and Julia. This was our first CL stay and we will definitely look to return in the future. David and Julia welcomed us on our arrival and have a CL site which they should be very proud of. The pitches are large and provide both hardstanding and grass. It was lovely to have electricity available and also our own water supply. The site is situated with lovely surrounding views and we found local walks to enjoy each morning with our two dogs. We enjoyed our short break so much that we extended our stay. Thank you David and Julia and we wish you all the very best - we will definitely be telling others to book!

What a great CL, very large pitches well worth a visit

We stayed here on the 12th April 2021 for 4 nights, fresh out of the lock down blocks. David and Julia are very welcoming, and nothing seems to be too much trouble. The site is level, with 3 hardstanding with lawn pitches of a VERY large size, and a further 2 grass only pitches again very large. Each pitch has its own EHU and fresh water. The grass if very well maintained. The access is easy, so larger motorhomes or caravans will have no issues getting into and out of the site. There is a view over the open countryside to one side of the site making our stay very relaxing. The village is very quiet, with a small well stocked shop and post office in walking distance. There is a Pub, but we did not go there, due to current restrictions. They are in the process of completing a toilet block with a shower, and washing up area, apparently will be ready by May, and that will put the tin had on an already lovely site. Word or warning, there is a mobile fish and chip van on a Wednesday (Paul's Plaice) no matter how hungry you are, you can not eat the large chips, one regular would have done between us and the large cod was also too large to finish (Jasper, our dog, was very happy about all this!) All in all a lovely well maintained site, that will be a regular place for us.

Amazing new site

We haven't stayed on many CL sites, but following our week long visit in September, this CL is definitely on our list to revisit next year. The welcome was warm not only on arrival but throughout the week when we saw the owners. The site is level, with lovely views across fields, the pitches are huge with each pitch having water as well as electricity. The village with small shop and lovely pub is an easy walk away, though the road is surprisingly busy for its size and we used this site primarily as a base for weekend visits to Snetterton Race Circuit which is only a few minutes drive away.

Warm welcome, perfect site

We stayed at this new CL in late August 2020 when Storm Francis also paid a visit. Directions to the site were good and Julia arranged to meet us on arrival. We received a warm welcome and were given all information we needed. A toilet and a shower are expected to be added next year but will only add to the already excellent facilities. Sanitiser was provided to use at the bins and toilet waste point. The grass was better than our lawn at home, pitches are large and well distanced and views across fields are lovely. The village makes for an interesting walk and there are parish walks and other guests told us of their 12 and 15 mile walks from site. We had good days at Bressingham Steam Museum and Gardens, and Banham Zoo nearby and there are plenty of other places of interest to visit. We will definitely go back to this CL in future if we can get in - it is bound to be popular. We recommend it without hesitation.

Super site!

Just back from a one night stay at Broadmarsh and we were very impressed. The owners were walm and welcoming and the site well thought out with level, well spaced pitches and well positioned water / electric points. The view across the fields is very pleasant and helped make a relaxing stay. Would recommend.
