Why stay here ...

The Reedcutter Caravan and Motorhome site is situated on the grounds of The Reedcutter Inn on the banks of the River Yare on the Norfolk Broads. The Reedcutter Inn is a very friendly pub run by Steve and Lyn who started running the pub in June 2013. The site is halfway between Norwich and Great Yarmouth. This is a lovely peaceful and scenic location.

We are open all day every day, except Christmas day when we close at 3pm. We are both child and dog friendly.

We offer a wide range of drinks and a varied menu. There is a large beer garden to sit and chill in or for the more sporty there is a games room with a pool table, darts, pinball tables and various board games. In the bar area is a another dart board and sky television.

Mondays is cash bingo night with eyes down at 8pm and Thursdays is quiz night, starting at 8pm.

There is a free slipway available and course fishing on the river during the season. All boats must have a temporary boat licence which is obtainable from the Broads Authority.

Cantley is a quiet village with no shops. There are shops in the neighbouring villages or in Norwich or Great Yarmouth. These are accessible by road or train, the station being 150 yards away. Norwich is approximately 12 miles away by road and Great Yarmouth 10 miles. The pub does sell basics and a small assortment of fishing tackle and during the season bait is also available.

There are some lovely walks along the river with marshland and an RSPB nature reserve bordering the pub. There is a pair of peregrine falcons resident in one of the towers of the sugar factory and they can often be seen flying about. There is a wide variety of wildlife to be spotted including marsh harriers, kites, herons, otters and occasionally seals and muntjack deer.

There are electric hook-up points and a separate car park is available. The site is grassed at the outer edge with a central hardstanding.

Although there is no shower/toilet block, the pub is open from 8am everyday with access to the toilets. Showers are available on request.

Advance booking is required together with a full deposit by debit card.

Steve, Lyn and staff look forward to welcoming you.

Absolutely Perfect

The Reedcutter Inn
We phoned at the last minute and Lynn couldn't have been more accommodating. The barman was really friendly when we arrived and the pitches are plenty big enough. The pub is right on the river and we used the restaurant and both had fantastic meals, real home cooking with very generous portions. We will definitely be back, many thanks for making this such a great stopover.

Quiet and Peaceful with fantastic Norfolk Skies!

The Reedcutter Inn
This site is in a small grassy field at the back of the Pub, the 5 Pitches are marked out with cones and plastic chains. The pitches are tight but usable. There are ample hook ups and easy access to water and waste points, plus CDP. The current site handbook omits the full directions to the site, so make sure you check the listing on the web site, it’s an easy tow as long as you don’t miss the turning for Cantley! Yes it is close to the Norwich to Lowestoft/Yarmouth railway and a large Sugar Beet factory, but we did not experience any noise problems. There is a good line of Willow trees between the site access road and the railway so a lot of the noise is screened very effectively. The owners and pub staff are very friendly and helpful, the food in the Reedcutter Inn is great with huge portions, certainly recommended.

Excellent CL

The Reedcutter Inn
A spur of the moment decision to head out overnight somewhere local and a really good decision it was. A lovely peaceful, well kept CL by the river in Cantley, If you are without transport there is a train station a short walk away which take you into Norwich or Great Yarmouth. Lovely riverside walk and a warm welcome in the adjoining pub The Reedcutter. We ate in there Saturday evening and also again this morning for breakfast, food is delicious, large portions and booking is a must. Highly recommend this site for a chillaxing time away.

Great little site by the river and pub. Interesting wildlife

The Reedcutter Inn
This is a great site. Stunning scenery next to the river. Big spectacular skies. The site has 5 large pitches all marked off most with electric hookup. Fresh water available , toilet and waste water disposal. Pitches are grass but we were quite firm in early October might be an issue for large vans in mid winter. Pub was friendly with traditional pub grub. Cantley train station was 2 minutes walk which then open up your options for easy town visits trains mostly every hour. Eg Norwich was 15 minutes on the train. Great walks along the river both ways. Yes there is a Factory nearby but it was no problem noise wise and you can hear trains but not much and not at night. We saw Otters in the river and Roe deer from the site. A great 3 night visit.

Lovely place by the river

The Reedcutter Inn
Upon arrival I was given pitch number. Few of the pitches are un even. Went into pub every day as they have a very good pool table and my boys love playing. Staff are very friendly and so are the locals. You couldn’t get any closer to the river. We have kayaks so was ideal for us. The only problem we had was they when a train goes through every time it sounds it’s horn from 6am to 11pm and did start to affect my husbands sleep. Also you are right next to the sugar factory and when they are working you can hear all the machinery or workman, even before 8am and after 11pm which I don’t think is legal. If you are not bothered by noise I recommend this place but if you want peace and quiet you won’t get it here.
