The Garden Caravan Site
Address Barmer Hall Farm
Norfolk, PE31 8SR
Tel 01485578220 / 01485578178
Open 1 March – 1 November
Ideally placed for the coast
With the wonderful RSPB reserve of Titchwell Marsh just a few miles away, The Garden is an ideal base for twitchers of all kinds. As well as Titchwell Marsh, the glorious North Norfolk beaches and a number of fine golf courses are all within easy reach of this individual and well-maintained site.
The site is enclosed in a southerly-facing walled garden, and contains 30 marked touring pitches. The walled garden is part of the grounds of Barmer Hall and makes for an attractive location.
Pitches each receive 16A electric hook-up points, and each has a TV aerial point. Signal reception varies in quality throughout the site – possibly as a result of the high wall surrounding the complex and the fine woodland beyond. The Garden’s wash block comprises free hot showers, washbasins, disabled facilities and a sink dish washing.
The site is veritable oasis within quite dense woodland – it traps the sun and can be very pleasant in spring and summer. If it gets really hot, there are mature trees and shrubs to provide cover around the site. There’s no on-site shop but the town of Docking is nearby for an any extras you might need.
The Garden is ideally placed for exploring Norfolk’s attractions. For instance, it’s not far form Sandringham and the roads and trails around the are ideal for walkers and cyclists. There’s also a woodland walk which you can access from the door in the wall at the rear of the site. Also within striking distance (not necessarily on foot) are attractions such as Norfolk Lavender-the oldest full-scale lavender farm in England-or the Thursford Collection . The latter houses an interesting array of steam engines, Wurlitzer organs and other, mechanical organs. Langham Glass is close by.
If you arrive on site and there’s no one at reception, don’t worry-simply pitch up and see the wardens later.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
