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.

The best CL yet

Broadmarsh Farm CL
We have just spent a wonderful five days on this site. Shortly after our arrival David called over to check everything was in order. Shortly afterwards we met his wife, Julia. Both are lovely welcoming people. The site is immaculate - it even has stripey lawns and is flat. There is a beautiful little chalet/shed housing a toilet and shower for those who don’t wish to use their own. It also houses a collection of books, info on the surrounding area with an informative map. The flower beds were full of colour and very cheerful. Totally unexpected but fabulous to have water on every pitch - luxury. We were able to try out our new mains water connector. There are lovely walks surrounding the site. The local pub is within easy reach as are supermarkets and fuel in Attleborough. I only hope the site stays open over the winter months - perhaps with limited capacity as three of the pitches are hard standing. A wionderful place to be on holiday. Both David and Julia came to say goodbye before we left - really lovely. We’ll certainly be back.

Immaculate CL, credit to the owners1! Highly recommended.

Broadmarsh Farm CL
Just returned from this gorgeous CL and cannot recommend it enough. Julia was very quick to comment when I was looking for a CL near to Norwich. Booking and communication was seamless, with excellent arrival instructions provided. The site uses only green toilet chemical, and they have some available to buy when you arrive. The site itself is in a gorgeous village with pub and shop in walking distance. The CL is immaculately kept, well-tended and very large level pitches, each with their own tap (3 hardstanding and 2 grass). David was very quick to say hello and apologise in advance for any farm noise (its on a working farm, and apparently some people have complained in the past!!!!). We prefer CLs on working farms and heard next to no noise, and it wouldn’t bother us if we did. The new toilet and shower is well done and well-kept with an adjacent info hut with fresh eggs and meats to pay into a honesty box. Julia along with David came to say goodbye before we left and wish a safe journey, we will definitely be back, though not as much as we would like with a 5-hour drive. The site is a credit to its owners, a fantastic CL and highly recommended.

Very impressive new CL

Broadmarsh Farm CL
We can only echo what everyone else has said about this new site being really lovely. We were impressed with the efficient communication, easy access to the site, the spacious level pitches, the mix of hardstanding and grass, the super information room and pristine toilet and shower facilities and of course the high standard of maintenance. We really wished we could have stayed longer. Thank you Julia and David.

Relaxing stay

Broadmarsh Farm CL
We recently spent a lovely relaxing mid week break at this well thought out site. The pitches are flat and extremely large with a choice of hard standing or grass. Access was easy with our fifth wheel caravan despite the fact that a road in the village was closed. Julia very thoughtfully emailed us before our arrival to let us know and advise us of the easiest way to find the site. As others have said Julia & David are friendly and available without being constantly around and are always happy to give help and advice about the area. Our dogs enjoyed their walks and visits to several different local secure fields for exploring. We will definitely visit again - if we can get in!

Friendly and Pristine CL

Broadmarsh Farm CL
Enjoyed a 2 night stay. Welcome very warm and friendly. Julia and David are rightfully proud of their new CL. Toilet facilities and information room very clean. Pitches well laid out for access to EHU and individual water points. Enjoyed a variety of dog walks from the site and village centre is an easy walk. Lovely meal at the local and great fish and chips from the village sampled on the Wednesday. Looking forward to another stay if they have any vacancies as I am sure this will be a very popular CL.
