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.

One of the best

We have been to 22 sites so far this year both home and abroad and this site is at the top of the list for facilities, layout, pitches and ambience. The friendly staff obviously work hard to keep the site in excellent order.

Not exactly child friendly

Very grumpy staff member told me and my 6 year old off for playing a gentle ball game next to our van. Plenty of other ball games going on around us, no complaints from anyone else. My son ended up in tears as he was not allowed to play cricket near our van only on the play area (next to the main road with signs saying no ball games). The road is very noisy as are the aircraft as you are under the flight path for Norwich International Airport. Very disappointed and will go elsewhere next time.

Our second visit

This was our second visit to this site and definitely won't be our last. Spotless facilities, friendly and helpful wardens and a beautifully kept site. Dog friendly pub and a dog friendly café only a few minutes walk away. Also a general store next to café which is well stocked. Close to Wroxham and other lovely locations. Fish and chip van Friday/Tuesday, not quite as good as fish and chip shop but good, very convenient hot food. When we come to the Norfolk Broads again we won't think of staying anywhere else 😁

Great site with friendly staff

This was our third visit to this beautiful site. The wardens were friendly and welcoming and the facilities were well maintained and in excellent condition. It is a great base to see the Broads. We will come again.

AN EXCELLENT SITE

An excellent site as you would expect from the Club. The wardens were friendly and always available but never intrusive. A word of warning about the mobile fish & chip van that goes onto the site. This should be a real treat whilst on holiday however the food was absolutely dire. The chips were no more than white, limp, soggy french fries and the thin line of white fish was encased in oil-soaked, hard unpleasant batter. A complete waste of money, the food was barely edible! The man in the van also found it acceptable to speak to a young member of staff (also in the van) in a most objectionable manner in front of customers waiting for their food to be cooked. However, none of this is the site's fault and it was the only 'negative' about our holiday. The site may wish to find an alternative supplier for this type of food to avoid getting itself a bad name through association!. Also be aware that the Dog Inn (although advertising itself as being 'Open all day' 'Cooked Food') does not in fact serve food all day. Whilst on holiday you want a flexible approach to eating not for it to be limited to short lunch times and evening meals. There is quite a limited menu and what you get is not great.
