Why stay here ...

Little Orchard is set amongst many acres of farmland in the west of Norfolk. The site itself occupies 0.75 acres of flat grassland with apple, pear and plum trees to one end. There is a small pond with Indian Runner ducks and hens in an enclosed area. All pitches are grass, have electric hook up and are well spread out with views across open farmland to the south west. The site is secluded. Dogs and other pets are always very welcome. The wildlife here is lovely and can often be observed from the comfort of your caravan. DEFRA countryside walks are on the doorstep and there is a small nature reserve one mile's walk from the site. 

The site is really well situated as it offers not only easy access to the beautiful Norfolk coast but also to the fens and wetlands to the west and the lovely cities of Cambridge and Ely, both well worth a visit. Sandringham House is a 20 minute drive due North, there are often events held in the beautiful grounds. The National Trust property of Oxborough Hall is just a 10 minute drive, famous for its Priest's Hole (as seen on the Antiques Roadshow).  Easy access to both market towns of Swaffham and Downham Market for shopping etc. Post Office / filling station in the village less than an minute's drive from the site in Fincham.

On site we have a cosy summer house which houses a television, hifi and comfortable chairs as well as lots of information on the local area. We sell our own eggs and also home made cakes and bread (when I have time!) We aim to provide a very relaxed, friendly, informal atmosphere at Little Orchard and will be happy to help you in any way to make your stay with us a memorable one. For those of you who enjoy a fire we have a fire pit which is free of charge to use although you will need to provide your own wood.

No extra charges.

Little gem

Little Orchard
We arrived to a warm welcome from Caroline, the chickens and the ducks. The site is beautifully set out with some quirky little touches. There is a little summerhouse with loads of local info. The pitches are big with a little table and chairs on each. Lovely and quiet and just what was needed to recharge the batteries. Thank you.

Beautiful

Little Orchard
Fabulous. The site is beautifully laid out and has many nice touches, like the table and chairs and bird feeders on each pitch, the larger table and chairs at the end, and the delightful summerhouse with softchairs, TV, stereo and delicious fresh eggs for sale. Watch out for Humphrey Bogart and Marilyn Monroe lurking in the corners. There’s a great variety of birdlife here, quite apart from the ducks and chickens that stroll around the site during the day. The owners are very friendly and helpful, and the whole place really is a delight. Stayed for a week and would happily have stayed longer. Will be back!

Very nice and peaceful

Little Orchard
We are so glad we stayed at this lovely site. Only 4 pitches, and plenty of space. We could just sit and completely relax. The birds were lovely and always around. The country lane was very quiet and we were only distracted by a very occasional jet from the nearby RAF base. That was quite interesting though. We didn’t use the summer house or fireplaces, but they were a nice touch. If we lived closer then we would be regular visitors. Well done and thank you Paul and Caroline

A Charming Site

Little Orchard
The owners were away when we arrived but had told us exactly where we could park and also had left an information booklet which had all been communicated beforehand. They came to visit us as soon as they got back to ensure we'd settled in ok. The pitches on the site are very generous with lots of shrubs for privacy and the addition of a table and chairs on each pitch was a lovely touch. We were here during a heatwave so were outside more than we were inside. There is an information room which is generously equipped with leaflets about local attractions, books, furniture and a t.v. There are free range chickens and ducks who wander the site, and can materialise seemingly from nowhere when you sit down to eat!! Their eggs are for sale too. The grass of the actual pitches was well-mown and the cut grass raked away, no mean feat when the temperatures are in the upper 20s, possibly higher. The site is handy for just about everywhere by road and also provides access to a small network of local footpaths and a modest wildlife area run by the parish. It's surrounded by fields on 4 sides and there is an abundance of flora and fauna to be seen. The only niggle, and this is no reflection on the site owners at all, is it can be a bit noisy. The access to everywhere comes at a cost and this is a busy A road which is the other side of the horse paddock and which was clearly audible throughout the day (although quieter at night). We may have noticed it more because it was so hot we had to have our windows open all day and night. Also on the first 3 days there were jets landing and taking off at RAF Marham nearby and the noise of their engines was earsplitting as they were so low. However what an opportunity to plane spot if that is an interest for you! Again, the jets didn't fly at night and after the 3 days we didn't hear them for the rest of the week. We thoroughly recommend this site and enjoyed our week's stay here.
