Camping in the orchard

General

  • Scenic orchard site on a Norfolk farm
  • Half an hour from Thetford Forest and 50 minutes from Norwich
  • Craft courses, meditation and farm shop selling honey, bread and veg

In need of a peaceful getaway that lets you unwind while still keeping your hands busy? Crafty guests should thread their way along to Brakehill Lodge Farm, a family-friendly orchard site on a farm half an hour’s drive from Thetford.

With a whole farm to explore, there are scenic walks to take and lengthy bike rides to make, and the peace and quiet to sit down and finally finish that book that’s been taking up space on the nightstand... If switching off completely doesn’t quite fit the bill, never fear: the site regularly runs a whole host of craft courses, from soap and candle making to beekeeping and meditation (just remember to check course dates before travelling if something specific is desired).

The site’s also within half an hour of Thetford Forest, putting guests within easy reach of lots of walks, mountain biking trails and the long-distance Peddars Way. That sounds like hungry work – luckily, there’s a small shop in the on-site farmhouse where honey, homemade bread and homegrown veg can be picked up.

Excellent small, secluded site with clean facilities and large pitches09/09/2019

Reviewer's country: United KingdomEmily W.Mobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Electric grass tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    This was a lovely, small, peaceful site with just 6 pitches. The pitches were a really good size - enough for a large tent, car and space to sit outside. The field is surrounded by tall trees adding to the secluded feel but you can still make out lovely views across fields and amazing sunsets.
    The amenities were good - clean toilets and hot shower. As there is only one shower this may be an issue in busy periods but we had no issues when we stayed (3 pitchdes in use). There was also a pool table, sofa area and lots of information leaflets on nearby areas.
    Great central location for exploring the surroundings - we went to the heart of thetford forest for a walk (40 mins away) and some lovely local villages and towns. Watton is a 10 min drive with places to eat, takeaway and shops.
    We would stay again!

  • Liked: 

    It was a smaller campsite but still had enough space for us to pitch up in our own area, we paid for electric but were given the option to move to a different area to have some more privacy away from the families. This wasn’t an issue either as the owner also pointed us toward electric she had inside that we were allowed to use. The shower block was always really clean and out of the way inside and there were games around for any kids to use.

Local attractions

Attention all fishing fans angling for a real catch of a getaway: will proximity to the well-stocked and spectacularly scenic Loch Neaton fishing lake (a mere 10-minute drive from base) prove to be enough of a lure? Pull up a slice of bank and cast a line to try and land carp, bream, perch, roach, rudd, tench or pike in a lucky catch.

Not everyone’s a fan of quiet afternoons with rod and reel, of course. Not to worry, there are plenty more fish in the sea... The Norfolk coast is about an hour’s drive away – head to Holkham beach for swimming and sandy strolls, or make Great Yarmouth the target if the family likes its beaches with a side order of zoo, aquarium, model village, pleasure pier and casino.

History hounds will be well-served hereabouts. The market town of Hingham is 15 minutes from the site and is chock-full of stunning Georgian piles to gaze upon, and the spectacular moated Oxburgh Hall is half an hour away. Prefer to be nosing around in the much more distant past? The Neolithic flint mine Grime’s Graves is well worth a pitstop.

Anyone needing a day of shopping and culture should get in the car for the 50-minute drive to Norwich city centre to explore England’s biggest six-day indoor market and check some of the Norwich 12 (the city’s most iconic buildings) off the list.

Must see

  • Castle Acre Castle (10.7 miles)
