Why stay here ...

Trevor and Gill welcome you to Karvue Meadow in the hamlet of Black Carr.

Based midway between the market towns of Wymondham and Attleborough and just 12 miles from the city of Norwich, we are ideally situated for a short break or longer stay. Set in the heart of rural Norfolk, Karvue is a spacious, level and secluded site surrounded by natural hedging and farmland. This is an ideal spot for peace and tranquility with an abundance of wildlife to be seen.

Within a mile is the village of Spooner Row where you will find the local pub/restaurant The Boars, which is highly recommended, and just 3 miles away both Wymondham and Attleborough offer a good choice of supermarkets and takeaways.

The surrounding countryside is good for cycling and walking with several picturesque villages to visit. The Norfolk Broads and Norfolk/Suffolk coastline are all within easy reach.

Banham Zoo is a popular local attraction, along with Wymondham Abbey, Norfolk Tank Museum, Bressingham Steam Museum and Peter Beales Roses.

We welcome adults and well behaved dogs on leads.

A haven for country bike rides

We stayed at this site over the weekend. It was obvious from the cleanliness of the grey/black waste disposal units that the CL must have been relatively new, and we correct in our assumptions. Trevor, the owner, stated he had only been open a couple a weeks and that we were one of his first customers. On arrival we made ourselves known to the owners and Trevor showed us on to the very generously sized camping field (more than ample for 5 outfits) and pointed out the best situations for morning/evening sun etc. As we were the only ones booked in for the weekend we obviously had the field to ourselves. It was lovely. The lack of ehu wasn't an issue for us, if indeed it had been we would have booked elsewhere. We told Trevor he had a little gem of a site. He informed us he was looking to possibly install electricity over the winter period, and indeed had managed to run cables part way to the field. I have no doubt that if and when ehu is installed it will appeal to many who prefer not to go "off-grid". The site is about 3 miles from the town of Attleborough and 4 miles from Wymondham. i am not sure as to whether there is any public transport to/from the hamlet of Black Carr, but the nearby village of Spooner Row does have a railway station. On saying that we easily managed to cycle to both towns mentioned above on the Saturday. There are a plethora of little country lanes and minor roads to cycle down, and some lovely little villages and countryside to cycle through. The site itself, apart from being very peaceful, was a haven for wildlife. We had swallows flitting about all weekend, a family of juvenile robins were in the hedgerow, kestrels, pheasants, rabbits, a loan stoat was spotted scurrying across the field, and two deer walked through the corn stubble field adjacent to the camping field. There is a little aerodrome a couple of miles down the road, (Old Buckenham airfield) and small aircraft took to the skies in the morning (from about 9am onwards), but the sound of those wasn't in anyway distracting. We cycled past the airfield on the Sunday and our attention was drawn to the advertising placard for Jimmy's cafe - named in honour of the American actor James Stewart, who just so happened to be the Operations Officer at the airfield during WW2 - when it was home to 453rd USAAF. We told ourselves then that, post covid, we would visit the airfield with its museums and "best airfield cafe/bar in the UK", their words not mine, and obviously, pay a return visit to Karvue. On the whole our stay at Karvue was just what we was hoping for - and more! I hope the site gets the custom it deserves
