General

  • Small, friendly and well-maintained campsite
  • Fishing pond with carp, rudd, roach and tench
  • Half mile from Shipdham village

Spring Farm Campsite is a small, newly-established site for people who want a simple camping experience in scenic and quiet surroundings. (To keep the site quiet for all, please note that dogs or large group bookings are not accepted.)

Facilities include chemical toilet waste disposal, a large shower room (ideal for families), eco-friendly composting toilets, a shelter containing hand basins and washing-up sinks, recycling and ice pack freezing facilities. Free USB charging points and an electrical socket for phones, tablets, laptops are in the wash block.

The site is very small so guests don't have to share these facilities with many other people. There's also a fishing pond stocked with carp and rudd. Fishing is free but please remember to bring your own rod and gear.

The site is half a mile from the village of Shipdham, which has a pub, convenience stores, church, fish and chip shop and café.

Barbecues and campfires permitted, as long as they're raised off the grass. Bags of firewood and kindling available to buy on site.

Please note

A charge of 50p applies for the use of shower.

Friendly family campsite 14/05/2018

  • Liked: 

    This was a lovely little campsite away from it all .The owners where very friendly and welcoming .We like the fact that we could have a fire with wood on site to purchase .The facilities where near on site ,so not far to walk .
    Local pub was just a 20 min walk and there was a lovely beer garden to sit and enjoy .Sure we would like to visit this campsite again .

    Disliked: 

    Distant road traffic noise was a nuisance ,but considering it being a bank holiday weekend its to be expected

    lovely clean site, basic facilities but all that was needed, was nice to have a shower and have room to manoeuvre (shower is sited inside a wooden shed) but least your clothes don't get wet unlike many sites we have stayed on where you shower and dry in the same small space.
    Ground was a dream for the tent pegs lovely and soft.

Spring Farm is the first property on your left.

From the north, east or west by car, come off the A47 at Dereham.
Traffic from the east will exit the A47 onto a roundabout by a large Tesco store. Turn right at the roundabout towards Dereham. Pass over a train line and straight over one set of traffic lights. At the second set of traffic lights (in between Roys and Homebase), turn left onto the A1075 Shipdham Road.
Traffic from the west will exit the A47 straight onto the A1075 Shipdham Road. Turn left onto the A1075. The A1075 will take you straight to Shipdham. Drive through Shipdham. Approximately 0.25 mile after the church, turn right at the Threeways Garage onto Bradenham Road. After approximately 0.25 mile, turn left onto a lane signposted Little Hale. This is single track but there are passing places. There is a lane off to the left after approximately 0.5 mile and Spring Farm is the first property on the left after this lane.
