Spacious grassy pitches

General

  • Peaceful adults-only site with small free-use fishing pond
  • A 40-minute drive from Thetford Forest Park and an hour from the coast
  • Within five minutes' drive of village pub, convenience store and café

Spring Farm Campsite is a small adults-only 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, 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 and laptops are in the wash block. There's also a small 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 and café.

Barbecues and campfires are permitted, as long as they're raised off the grass. Firepits are provided free of charge. Bags of firewood and kindling available to buy on site, or guests can bring their own. Once the sun goes down, the lack of light pollution means some fab stargazing to be had (weather permitting, of course).

Please note

Group bookings of 6 or more adults are not permitted (couples and immediate family members excepted).

A charge of £0.50 applies for the use of the shower.

Guests under the age of 18 are not allowed on site.

Single-sex bookings of 6 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

Group bookings of 4 or more units (e.g. tent, touring caravan, motorhome or accommodation hire) travelling together are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    The facilities were great, really clean and well maintained! Love that they used compostable toilets to do their bit for the environment. Very peaceful and great value for money. The lady running it was also really friendly and super helpful when giving us recommendations of near by walks!

  • Liked: 

    The site was lovely. We got a very warm welcome and were shown the facilities on arrival. Pitches were not restricted. Plenty of sanitiser and hand soap and hot water.
    A covered washing up area and lovely shower. Environmentally sound too with compost toilets. All very clean. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a quiet peaceful break.

    Disliked: 

    The weather! A howling gale that ripped our tent and even pulled the poles out of the ground!
    Obviously no fault of the campsite, we were even offered the use of their tent! Our enthusiasm was somewhat dampened by then so we declined. We will go back, hopefully in better weather.

Local attractions

If walks and wildlife are part of your holiday agenda, head for the heath: half an hour’s drive away, the National Nature Reserves of Weeting and Brettenham Heaths are wild heather-covered spaces inhabited by red deer and stoats, buzzards and stone curlews.

For a contrast, make the hour-long trip to Martham Broad to spot cranes, otters and Chinese water deer in the wetlands or, a similar distance away, see the seals from the sands of Horsey Gap.

If you can’t resist the call of the sea, Cromer and Great Yarmouth have all the proper seaside stuff just over an hour away, from piers and funfairs to sandy beaches, plus a zoo and aquarium. And if it’s inland waters you’re hankering for, the Norfolk Broads are within 45 minutes with walkways and cycle paths for landlubbers, and various craft hireable from places like Brundall for watery sorts.

Woodland types can have a whale of a time in Thetford Forest Park: head to High Lodge to hire bikes and explore the trails on two wheels, or zipwire through the canopy at Go Ape in Thetford, both 40 minutes away. At a similar distance and also within the forest, Brandon Country Park has dozens of nature and history themed paths for walkers and bikers… journeys of either to be finished off with fresh cakes in the tearooms, natch.

Must see

  • Castle Acre Castle (9.5 miles)
  • Grimes Graves (12.6 miles)
  • Banham Zoo (13.8 miles)

National Trust

  • Oxburgh Hall (12.9 miles)
  • Blickling Hall, Gardens and Park (19.8 miles)
