General

  • Traditional family site near Dereham, in meadows around a working farm
  • Wildlife haven with woodland and plenty of space, away from main roads
  • Heated shower and toilet block, launderette and hairdryers

Your fledglings will love this farm site – and those in charge of the flock are very likely to agree. Park Farm Camping near Dereham in Norfolk is simple, affordable and no-frills... but doesn’t skimp on the amenities either: the heated shower and toilet block even has free hairdryers in the ladies for those of you who like to keep barnets shipshape at all times.

Owners Julie and Derek have set up Park Farm as a traditional and safe site for small fry and their tribes: it’s in meadows around a working farm, with wildlife all around and farm animals to see in the next field. There’s heaps of space even in the height of summer for all the herd (including the dog) to run around, \as well as a wood to explore and a small play area to swing around – with everything secluded away from main roads for chicks to be safely free range. All this, and campfires are allowed too.

Other creature comforts at Park Farm include a launderette, free wifi, public phone and a shop to pick up essentials. Off site, a pub, deli, village shop, bakery, post office, grocer’s and butcher’s in Swanton Morley a couple of minutes’ drive away.

    There is a play area and zip wire, which the kids loved. The family bathroom room was a great size (I have 3 children) with toilet, sink, shower and baby changing facilities, was lovely and warm and clean. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Little "honesty" shop on site with a few bits in. Also the girls loved listening to the cows in the sheds and walking round to look at them, lovely white park cattle.

    We had a Motorhome and booked a luxury tent that was supplied by the site.
    Brilliant!
    We are already discussing booking again next year.
    Amenities were clean and well equipped, reception staff could not have been more helpful.

    Disliked: 

    It was quite hard to find in a Motorhome as it’s surrounded by single lanes so if you make one wrong turn it can take a long time to find it

From the manager...

Thank You so much for your Wonderful words and review also our 10/10 score, We look forward to seeing you all again in the future, With respect to being hard to find if you were following sat nav which <b>we advise not to do</b> on our websites and in our booking reminders we are quiet easy to find if you stay on the main road and follow our signage from the village centre.

Last minute booking but what a gem of a find! Highly recommend 15/10/2018

  • Liked: 

    Location was great, beautiful site, facilities were cleanest and tidiest I’ve ever seen. Pitches nice and level and with the added bonus of free WiFi - no phone or G4 available so WiFi was great as I could still make and receive calls. Staff were very accommodating and friendly. Children loved the freedom of the site and the park area. This was a last minute booking but couldn’t have been more pleased with it. All the facilities you could want and on site “trust” shop that had all you could want for any last minute needs and treats. Only stayed 2 night with my partner and our 2 young children but will definitely return again. So much to do in the area this is an ideal location to go out and about. The campsite also has varievenys going on fireworks, Christmas etc so we are considering going back for that. Highly recommend this site.

    The tent was well appointed with all the necessary equipment for a comfortable stay. It was within rolling distance of the wedding venue we were attending! The shower facilities were also nice and clean and nice hot water.

    Disliked: 

    The wifi signal wasn't great and there was no phone signal to be in contact with home

From the manager...

So Glad we made your stay comfortable and thank you for your 8 stars sorry about phone signal we cannot do anything about it but were happy to let you use our office phone free of charge to keep in contact with your girls, and with the wi-fi it is a limited service being free if we wanted to have ultra coverage we would have to charge to cover the cost of the infrastructure required

Directions


From Norwich, take the A47 towards King's Lynn or the A1065 Fakenham, and take the B1147 to Swanton Morley. At Darby's Free House, take the Elsing Road. Take the second right to the junction, then turn left for Hunter's Hall.

Warning: do not follow satnav directions if you are in motorhomes or touring caravans or if towing any trailer. Do not use Norwich Road - use only Elsing Road from junction with B1147 (Darby's pub).

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Use Park Farm Camping as a base to explore north Norfolk and Norwich, or stay close to home and explore the paths and lanes for walking and pedalling around the Wensum Valley: leaflets and brochures on acres’ worth of visitor attractions at the Park Farm reception.

The River Wensum is on the edge of the farm estate with free fishing for Park Farm Camping guests on the two miles where the river flows through nearby Castle Farm (not available during season from 16 March – 16 June), or cast off at the Norfolk coast about half an hour away to try your luck at landing mackerel, bass and cod.

You could pick a beach or seaside town to drive to every day of your holiday at Park Farm: seal spotting boat trips from Morston and Blakeney as well as swishing around somewhat swanky Wells-next-the-Sea and Burnham Market, aka Chelsea-on-Sea are all within 40 minutes' drive. Within 50, make for the Pleasure Beach (and racecourse) at Great Yarmouth or the crabbing, funfair and zoo at Cromer, both top picks to seaside antics.

Other eclectic options within accessible reach of Park Farm Camping include padding around Liz II’s pad at royal Sandringham and other old houses like Holkham Hall: both are around 45 minutes away. Norwich is 25 minutes from the site.
