There is also a little cafe within the shop selling cakes, pies and sausage rolls, to go with a nice hot beverage. With seating available inside and out it is an ideal stop off point on an adventure around the village. Dogs are welcome within the outside seating area.

"It doesn't get much better"

Elm Croft
Don’t hesitate, this is a secret gem I’m keeping to myself. Easy to follow M&C signs as you get near. Warm discrete welcome. Truly lovingly maintained flower, scrub & tree bordered well mown site in the countryside. Very clean toilet & information hut with all the surrounding info you need. Lovely separate garden decking area. Everything you need including fresh eggs & herbs. A pleasant 15min walk to the Rockland Community shop & cafe (8-4) & pub (pm opening). Plenty of local walking & fishing lake nearby. A good base for local sites.

Well maintained campsite

Elm Croft
Beautiful little site surrounded by hedging and well maintained flower beds. Lovely seating area with help yourself herbs and spotless toilet shed with details of lots of walks and pubs and the eggs from Sally’s chickens were yummy. Local pub only open for food Friday/Saturday but we had a lovely Sunday lunch at the Red Lion in Caston ( ask them about the secret passage from the church to the stone cross). Lots of peaceful roads to cycle on and we even made it to Thetford forest and the Pingo Trail from the campsite (there is a kissing gate either end of the trail so you do need to lift your bikes over and it is a bit disconcerting cycling along by the military firing range! Really enjoyed NT Oxburgh not so much the Water Gardens nearby. The only negatives to the site were the squealing pigs in the nearby farm which was a bit off-putting, but you are in the country and as nobody else has mentioned them maybe we were unlucky with the direction of the wind!

Well kept and peaceful

Elm Croft
We had a weekend at this really well maintained site at the end of June. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. There is a little area of siting outside should you want to and a spotlessly clean toilet. Not sure if there is a shower, as we always use our own. We did some nice walks directly from site and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will be back to this peaceful haven.

Lovely cl

Elm Croft
Just returned from this lovely CL. Lots of lovely birds to see, spent many times watching them in the trees. The site is beautiful and Sally works hard to keep it looking lovely, it is very well kept. Fresh eggs available, and wow they are so delicious! We had no problem with TV reception. This is a lovely site and it would be my first port of call for staying in the area.

A great week on our return to Elm Croft. Lovely lawned spacious site with flower beds behind the pitches and asparagus fields beyond the hedge. Lovely sunsets. Very friendly owner Sally whose chickens lay great eggs to buy. The site boasts an immaculate toilet and a garden area adds to the peace you will feel here. The village of Rocklands has a pub and community shop/post office and the lovely town Attleborough is 4 miles away for supermarkets etc. Wymondham similarly has good shopping and well worth a visit with the it’s mid Norfolk railway We spent time cycling the quiet lanes of the area and walking too. Highly recommended.
