  • Four-acre and level pub and riverside site on the Norfolk Broads
  • Private fishing lake in a wildlife haven
  • Free slipway use, barbecue area and food served by the fire
There are times when you just want a ferry relaxing break. Away from the hordes in the seaside resorts, alongside peaceful riverside scenery, and with the option on site of river fishing, lakeside fishing or just taking a pint of Woodforde Wherry to sup by the riverside and watch the ferry chug back and forth… All, thoroughly, sorted. Reedham Ferry Touring and Camping Park is a pub site in the Norfolk Broads, with a private fishing lake available to guests to land carp, bream or rudd; you can also fish for free from the site on the banks of the River Yare. The four-acre site is level and landscaped with views of the Norfolk countryside and marshes; if you’re not fishing, take your binoculars to the riverside to spy on the local herons, marsh harriers and kingfishers. And if you do want to be beside the seaside for a day, Great Yarmouth is about 11 miles away. Pitches at Reedham Ferry include free use of the slipway if you’re bringing along a dinghy or two. There’s a barbecue area on site for putting together your own grub – or you could just sit by the fire in The Archers and have your dinner brought to you: a ferry good deal all round.

Electric grass pitch

Liked: Very quiet friendly site, spacious pitches warm and tidy facilities very tidy site, pub on site we didn't venture in but looked welcoming, the added touch of being able to use a ferry is quite charming the ferryman always had a smile and friendly

Disliked: The numbers on the electric points could be put on the outside as you can't tell which they are unless you get out your vehicle, nothing really to dislike 😊

Non-electric grass pitch

Liked: We liked the pitches and the area. The pub was nice, with friendly helpful staff.

Disliked: The water taps, we wanted to fill small amounts at a time but the taps are push button and dispense a lot of water. Would have liked private wash basins for cleaning teeth and having a wash.

Electric grass pitch

Liked: A great little site. Nice and quiet with good facilities. Village pub just next door and Good walks to Reedham village along the river. We used as a base for Stand Up Paddleboarding in the area. Chain ferry across the rover Yar is great to watch. Would highly recommend and looking forward to coming back again

Liked: Location was perfect. Lovely and quiet spot.

Disliked: Unfortunately weather wasn't kind to us and rained quite alot. The grass pitches were stood in water and mud. Toilets were basic and only 2 cubicles and everytime we went they were in a poor state 💩.

Electric grass pitch

Liked: Lovely relaxing spot, good access to local marshland, rivers and a few great pubs with good food. Few local amenities and bits to do with the kids, fun trip away.

Disliked: Only downside was the pitch was a bit muddy but not that’s the Uk weather not the site!

Recommend to friends Visit again

Very enjoyable camping trip, will definitely go again

Non-electric grass pitch

Liked: Great for walking dogs, love the area very peaceful, my partner and daughter enjoyed fishing while I walked other kids to reedham to get ice cream. Every body was friendly and it was quiet after 10. Toilets and showers are always clean never run out of toilet paper. There was a old phone box that had been turned into a book swap library. Fantastic value for money

Disliked: There was a rude man (who worked there)who told me to take the bagged dog poo out of the bin and put it in the dog poo in the car park dog poo bin, the bin I used was a public bin next to telephone box. I had said sorry I had not seen any dog poo bins at this point. There needs to be more dog poop bins available in the campsite. Shame really as this is the only thing I can find fault with.

Local attractions

Walk along the river to Reedham village for fish and chips, Reedham Quay and more pubs: the Lord Nelson has free gigs most nights, or you could take the yard of ale challenge in The Ship – both pubs are dog-friendly and dish up huge portions of food. The Humpty Dumpty Brewery, one of the breweries supplying the site, has a shop selling its beer alongside local ciders and produce. For families, Pettitts Adventure Park is also in Reedham, with a kids' theatre and animals to feed and pet. From Reedham, take the 12-mile cycle route starting from Reedham Quay and going through local towns and villages, or take the chain ferry across the River Yare to drive on through the countryside. But as it’s the Broads, a bit more mucking about in boats is definitely in order: as well as the vehicle ferry from the park itself, several companies in the area offer cruises and guided tours or you can go rowing, canoeing or sailing under your own steam. Take the kids to goggle at the gibbons at Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens, just outside Great Yarmouth: the seaside town is about 11 miles from Reedham Ferry and will keep small fry entertained for hours (if not days) with its circus, Sea Life, seafront Golden Mile and 12 amusement arcades.
