Why stay here ...

Cavick House Farm is a peaceful site located on a small working farm in the South Norfolk countryside. The site is located in a sheltered two acre field with electrical hook-ups and space for awnings. Children and dogs on leads are both welcome at the site and a warm reception is always guaranteed. In the adjacent field we have a donkey, 4 goats, pet sheep and chickens. 

Our free range eggs are available to buy in The Egg Shed. You will also find fresh coffee, homemade cakes & scones, gifts and cards in our farm Cafe The Hen House, as well as homemade preserves and plants in The Jam Shed.

Our site is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area. Close by is the historic Wymondham Abbey and the pretty market town of Wymondham. This town provides a selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and supermarkets.

Visitors can enjoy a walk along the River Tiffey or to the award winning heritage Mid Norfolk Railway just a short walk away with trains to Dereham and Steam trains over the summer. The famous Norfolk Broads and beautiful North Norfolk and Suffolk coastlines are within reach from our site offering stunning natural beauty and a range of attractions to suit all tastes.

A little gem!

What a little gem! An idyllic rural location but within easy walking distance to the beautiful Wymondham Abbey and pretty little historic market town of Wymondham itself. Friendly owner, David, who is happy to chat but respects your privacy and space. Spacious grassed site circling a cute little animal enclosure, currently home to Lucy the venerable old donkey, Pamela the goat (her faithful companion) and three rather sedate sheep! The fresh eggs, are delicious bought from the little shop sitting next to the tasteful little cafe and gift shop , both of which are very popular with campers and locals alike. Wymondham, lovely in its own right, certainly benefits from this tasteful little additional facility. A working farm so the occasional ‘scent’ in the air, and happy grunts and squeals at feeding time, but certainly not intrusive. A true sense of being enveloped in the country side. Will definitely berevisiting.

Wish we'd found this earlier :-)

Under Covid we've started to explore our more local CLs - This one is a delight! Oodles of space....just about shouting distance to any neighbouring caravans (although we were alone for our stay last week).....facilities simple and straightforward but fully functional (including obviously newly-upgraded 16a electric hookups). Ground gently undulating, but any proper caravanner will have a few planks for levelling and we didn't need any....normal Norfolk soil meant one or two awning pegs needed repositioning to avoid flints, but pitching was nowhere near as difficult as the average CAMC hardstanding! Grass sufficiently cut, without being so over-manicured that I was scared to drive over it :-) Extremely friendly welcome from our non-intrusive hosts and otherwise left to our own devices, with everything necessary clearly signed and marked - perfect! Yes, with the wrong wind direction there is some detectable smell from the pigs across the way (but it's a working farm, so no surprises there :-) ) To be fair, detectable would indicate a north-westerly, which is not that common hereabouts. Never heard the chickens at all despite there being thousands of them just up the next field behind the trees. Their produce, however, is as fresh as it gets and available 12 hours a day at the eggery, adjacent to the gloriously quirky coffee shop run by Annabelle, who bakes the most delicious cakes. All this within 150 yards walk of the CL. The adjacent paddock houses Lucy the donkey & Pamela the goat, who are also friendly enough, but give off the air of "seen you lot all before" so really don't care whether you talk to them or not :-) 5 mins stroll from the site is Mid Norfolk Railway's Wymondham station and 1 min further is Wymondham Abbey and the delightful town, with a pleasant walk along the riverside as an option next to the railway crossing. Oh yes, we'll be back.....just hope a positive review doesn't mean we can't get a pitch next time :-)

We keep coming back

We have visited this site a number of times and enjoy coming back. There are only two negatives that I can see and that is the flies as previously mentioned and the smell of the pigs when the wind blows in a certain direction, but given that this is a working farm you would expect it and for us wasn't a problem. The site is approached via a long sweeping drive and when you reach the CL the area is large with plenty of space and the animals are great for the children to see. The owners are very friendly and accommodating and there is the option to buy fresh free range eggs and preserves for the Hen Shed in front of the Farmhouse. The town of Wymondham is only a few minute's walk and would suit motorhomes as the bus stop is within walking distance too. I would certainly recommend this site for both couples and families.

if you are here for a weekend or week you will always be welcome. yes this is a working farm (hard working) the family are lovely, theres a lovely coffee place with a different where you can have a chap with the locals and eat home made cake, theres fresh eggs and jam from the nicely painted sheds.  wymondham is just a short walk passed the abbey you must take the time and pop into the abbey, you can catch the train or bus into Norwich. we have been stopping here for the last 10 years and we come 2-3 times a year and we will be back.

A perfect place to visit

We have stayed here so many times, it was almost our second home..with easy access to clean level spacious pitches. Good for walking,cycling ect, the little town a short walk away, take time to visit the beautiful abbey and heritage steam railway.On the Cl are the freshest eggs you can buy, and a quant cafe, run by the lovely Annabel. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners David and Julie. Be aware this lovely site is a working farm, so please respect this keeping your dog on a lead,and an eye on your children (who are made very welcome, I hasten to add).
