There are times when you just want a ferry relaxing break. Away from the hordes in the seaside resorts, alongside tranquil 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.
Reedham Ferry Touring and Camping Park is a pub campsite in the heart of the Norfolk Broads, with a private fishing lake available to guests to land carp, breach or rudd; you can also fish for free from the site on the banks of the River Yare (don’t forget your fishing licence). The four-acre site is level and landscaped with vivid 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. If you do want to be beside the seaside for a day, the coastal resort and amusement arcades of Great Yarmouth are a short drive away.
Pitches at Reedham Ferry are roomy and level for both tents and tourers, with optional electric hook-up and no extra charges for awnings, dogs or pup tents; use of the slipway is free of charge too if you’re bringing along a dinghy or two. Amenities are plentiful, with washing up areas, several water access spots and a new shower block with shaver points. There’s a barbecue area on site for putting together your own grub – or just sit by the fire in The Archers and have your dinner brought to you. Ferry good all round, we think.

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 now 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.

Take the A47 towards Great Yarmouth; take the slip road off towards Acle and at the mini roundabout at the bottom; follow the signposts for Reedham Ferry.
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 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 campsite, has a shop selling its beer alongside local ciders and produce. For families, Pettitts Advenure Park is also in Reedham, with a children’s theatre and animals to feed and pet.
From Reedham, you can 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: a car crossing is £4 one-way and foot passengers pay 50p. 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, there are several companies in the area offering cruises and guided tours as well as rowing, canoeing or sailing under your own steam.
The Broads Authority runs boat trips from four locations along the 125-mile network of rivers and broads in Norfolk, including a wildlife water trail from How Hill nature reserve with a visit to a bird hide on the reserve. For more birdwatching, the RSPB reserve at Strumpshaw Fen is near Reedham Ferry; look out for otters here too.
Take the kids to the zip wires and treehouses of the outdoor adventure centre BeWILDerwood, the theme park Pleasurewood Hills in neighbouring Lowestoft or to goggle at the gibbons at Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens just outside Great Yarmouth. The seaside town is about eleven miles from Reedham Ferry and will keep small fry entertained for hours if not days with its circus, Sea Life, seafront Golden Mile and twelve amusement arcades.
For more grown-up fare, head to Norwich with its medieval streets, cathedral and great Norman castle; for shopping, the city has one of the biggest open-air markets, open six days a week, while mustard fans can pick up all sorts of eye-watering produce at the Colman's Mustard Shop in the city centre.
