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).

Flies, flies and more flies!

Visited August 2015 When is a CL not a CL?  There were 5 available pitches near each other which we assume were for the CL, adjacent to the small animal enclosure;  however across the field next to the hedge was another caravan which seemed to be permanent and higher up the field were three more, including one which was permanently stored there.  We all appeared to use the same water supply and chemical toilet emptying point. As with previous reviews the flies were an absolute menace.  Pigs were in a big shed adjacent to the field, although we could not see them.  However at certain times of the day, possibly feeding, you could certainly hear them squealing.  I know this is a working farm, however we never saw the owners and everyone was left to their own devices.  There were notices about keeping dogs on leads and not fouling the field, but this obviously does not apply to the owners, who let their own dog run loose in the field and fouled the area in front of the vans. Admittedly they did clear it up when complained to but that is not the point.  The good points were that it was only a 5 minute walk into Wymondham, with bus links to Norwich etc.  The steam railway is two minutes walk along the lane and the Abbey only a few yards further on.  The owners were so busy with the cafe, shop etc., that we had no contact and had difficulty finding someone to pay when we left.  One couple on the site at the same time as us, left two days early because they could not stand the fies any longer. It may be that the CL pitches are downwind of the flies, as they are close to the the animal enclosure and the other pitches on the other side and at the top of the field were not so affected. Needless to say we will not be returning.

Returned after 30 years

Always remembered this site from 30 years ago as it was very difficult to put pegs into the ground - no change there then. No decent views from the site but walks available into the country. Electric hook-ups adjacent to the small animal enclosure and therefor a strong 'countryside aroma' existed perfect for the many flies . When I stayed, there were 9 units on site and due to the uneven land surface were well spread out apart from hook-ups. Pity other users allowed dogs off lead. May return in another 30 years !!! but doubt it.

Nice site but.....

Stayed on this CL for a long weekend. The pitches are not level so you will need some ramps but its a nice peaceful site considering its on a working farm. There is a field of sheep and another area behind the pitches which is home to hens, goats & a donkey, which the kids loved. As mentioned in previous review, there are a lot of flies but this would not stop me staying at this site again, i would just go armed with fly spray. Site owners are very friendly with a lovely cafe on site.

Friendly Owner, Lovely Setting

Stayed here August 2014 for a week. I love the typical laidback ethos of the CL owner community -- that 'pay me next time you see me' attitude I find so often. It sets the whole tone of the stay for me and CHF was no exception. Julie greeted us on arrival and was lovely. She gave us a (funny) apprisal (not appraisal for you budding grammatarians!) of the situation regarding pitching with regard to some 'neighbour challenges' then left us to our own devices! The produce on site is wonderful. The field is roomy and nicely cut. Wymondham is an easy walk and is a treat. I/we absolutely love it here. You must go -- it is wonderful!

One of the children's favourite CLs

A lovely site on a working farm that is always a pleasure to visit. We have been here several times and always enjoy it. The children love being surrounded by the animals, stroking Lucy and Oska, feeding the chickens and trying to talk back to the sheep. 4 out of 5 for peace is only because the cockerel can be a bit of an early riser, but none of the many sounds are man made, so we find it very peaceful. Pigs can pong a bit if the wind is blowing the wrong way, but it helps to make you feel that you are properly in the country! It is an easy walk to Wymondham, but bring good torches if you plan to do it in the dark. Grass is well tended, owners friendly, services well maintained. We will keep coming back, even though it is only 20 miles from home.

A delightful CL

This site is a lovely, peaceful site with very helpful owners. There is a small self service tea shed, with home grown produce and eggs available from the farm (check out the jumbo eggs if you like to dip your solders in the morning)! The paddock adjacent to the site is home to Lucy the donkey, Oska and Trinket the goats and a small number of sheep and chickens which are a constant source of entertainment! The village is five minutes walk past Wymondham Abbey with good local facilities and an Indian takeaway that delivers to the site. A fab week was spent here.
