Why stay here ...

Norfolk Broads Club Site is an open and tranquil holiday destination set in the midst of the scenic Norfolk Broads. These combine over 200 miles of waterways with windmills, market towns and several lovely river settings in between. The site is a great option for dog owners, with a variety of walks to choose from nearby. The caravan park is also only a short distance away from the attractive villages of Horning, Ludham and Potter Heigham, giving you easy access to all the conveniences you could wish for.

Wroxham & Potter Heigham form the boating centre in the area and both are closely located to the Norfolk Broads Club Site and the river Ant is a mere 180 metres away. You can take a lovely stroll along the riverbank to How Hill and St Benet's Abbey. The nearby Wroxham Barns is home to working craftsmen and is found next to a junior farm, children's playground and a summer funfair.

The Norfolk countryside is great for exploring by bike and perfect for all abilities, with plenty of country lanes to explore - you can buy a guide to local routes from reception. If you venture 10 miles away to the coast you’ll discover seaside towns to explore and see seals basking on the beaches, and a visit to Norwich is also a must, with its daily market, interesting castle and fine Norman cathedral.

Excellent site with friendly helpful wardens

This is one of the most clean and well kept sites we have ever stayed on and all the flower beds/baskets that are everywhere are simply stunning (and that's from an avid gardener) The site was also calm friendly and quiet. Apart from this we would have had a stressful holiday if it hadn't been for the help and understanding of the wardens. Our car broke down on the journey there and we didn't arrive until 9.30pm. Mike was all prepared for us and couldn't have been any more helpful to go out of his way to quietly settle us in. The following day we had a problem with our van and once again Mike came across to see if he could help (he did) On top of this we had problems with leaving which was soon sorted out by the team. We are so grateful to the wardens on this site for making our holiday a happy one! Couldn't recommend this site enough :-)

Excellent, yet another great holiday

We were supposed to arrive on Monday 2nd Sept. The car broke down on the way and we were taken home by Green Flag. The only vehicle I could hire with a tow bar was a Transit van. Knowing the restriction on commercial vehicles I rang the site to enquire if it was ok and was given the ok to travel. We arrived on the Wednesday and received some friendly ribbing from the wardens about the vehicle.....great fun. This was the sixth time we have been to this site and each time the site has been beyond our expectations. We use this site because of it's location to The Broads, we love this area having hired boats for thirty years but sadly have trouble getting on and off now. All the Broads attractions are within a short drive. Great Yarmouth is close by.....if you like that sort of thing. Good food can be had at numerous pubs and restaurants and there is an excellent Chinese takaway in Horning. A great site, clean, well kept, great facilities and fun wardens. Steer clear of the fish and chip van and don't forget to drive up to the line on your arrival, lol We will be back.

Fabulous Site

We have just returned from a six night stay at this fabulous site ! The entrance was very welcoming with an array of hanging baskets and the check in was quick with a very helpful and friendly warden who gave us lots of information and told us where everything was ! The pitches are spacious and well kept, in fact the whole site was spotless you could tell the wardens work very hard to keep it that way ! The site is well situated for visiting the gorgeous villages and towns nearby and just down the road is a pub which was a 5 minute walk and if you walk the other way there is the river where the boats moor up, a nice cafe and shop and also a long walk through the countryside great if you have a dog ! We loved it and had a great time, everyone on site were friendly we got chatting to lots of people ! We will be back !

First time with the caravan

We had our first trip away with our new to us caravan to this particular site and it was great, weather could have been a bit better but that is not something the site can control. Facilities are good, nice big shower block with plenty of showers and toilets, the pitch itself was immaculately maintained and when we arrived, the staff were trimming the bushes between the two sides of the pitch. The staff are all friendly, they made a fuss of our dog when we took him for a walk and one of the staff helped us sort out our water extension for our aqua roll when i couldn't work it out myself. The dog walking area is a nice touch but we walked down to the river/broad which is quite close by and has a cafe and a well tsocked corner shop. We didn't venture into Ludham itself but we did try and walk to St Benet's Abbey ruins but my wife is disabled so we turned back after a while as the ground was a bit too much for her. It has a small area for children but isn't too far away from things to keep the kids entertained and there is a fish and chip van comes to the site twice a week and on the Sunday - which was a glorious day - an ice cream van turned up too which was very welcome. All in all, this site was a very pleasant first exeperience and is a site we will be visiting again at some point in the future.

Nice site

We went to this site because we had been to Becks Motorhomes at Rollesby to look at vans. When they say "walk by the river" yes the walk is along the course of the river, it is such a shame that you can barely see the river, unless you walk down to Ludham bridge, which is only 2 mins away. We didn't try the cafe but that has good reviews. The site staff are very friendly and helpful, and I am sure that no other campsite has such an interesting shop. The facilities are clean. I tried not to put any stars for no.5 as we have no children so wouldn't know if it is good for families, but you have to put something which is why I only put 1. The site up to the usual standards of the Caravan Club.
