Black Barn Farm: A diverse collection of apples, pears and plum trees in the orchard

General

  • Peaceful adults-only touring site two miles from the Norfolk Broads
  • A 15-minute drive from Norwich city centre; 25 minutes from the coast
  • Atmospheric night-time vibes from lit woodlands

If boating on The Broads has long been on your bucket list, the dog-friendly Black Barn Farm is a peaceful place to pitch up two miles from the edge of the national park. Here, the adults-only touring pitches are in a 22-acre field in an established orchard and surrounded by woodlands, making for a rather chilled-out stay.

This area is known as the big sky country, so splendid sunsets and lights in the trees create a pretty nice night-time vibe. You’ll be able to kick off the evening with a firepit or barbecue too, as both are permitted on site.

A 15-minute drive from Norwich, this site is on the edge of Salhouse, a rural Broads village. So, bridleways and footpaths may be the first thing to capture your attention, as they lead the way to walking, wildlife spotting and canoe hire in the Salhouse Broad – or there's a place to launch your own canoe or paddleboard, two miles away from the site.

Convenience is key at this site, starting with the toilets and showers inside the barn, all heated with auto light switches for that extra ease. Then, there’s a train station and bus station within walking distance of the site with regular services to Norwich city centre or the coast.

Foodie? The local food shop is a 20-minute walk away along a public footpath (or a five-minute car journey). For more specific bits, there’s a bigger supermarket 10 minutes’ drive away and beer aficionados will find a brewery and pub five minutes’ drive away too.

Please note

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

  • Liked: 

    Location was excellent for exploring the surrounding area. Site was small and being adult only was quiet and peaceful. Large and level pitches.

    Disliked: 

    Boggy entrance onto pitches (although the owner says they are waiting to lay hard core). Outside sinks for washing up not covered and used for cleaning other things around the farm / stables, hence dirty and unable to use. Condition of toilets and showers excellent but would benefit from being cleaned on a regular basis. No WiFi

Very good clean site26/10/2021

  • Electric grass touring caravan pitch

  • Liked: 

    Pitches were of generous size, which was great not being on top of each other. Electric and water on direct access on pitch, no walking and dragging aquaroll. Shower/toilet area very nice and clean, however not too sure about shared facilities!

    The evening with the trees lit up was a lovely touch.

    The site is new and is a work in progress, will be great to see what it is like when finished.

    A lovely 'smaller' sized site, so peaceful, not overcrowded, overall a very lovely stay

    Disliked: 

    Sorry... not necessary dislikes but area's for improvement;
    - no signs/map to direct to actual camping area
    - no welcome upon arrival or at any time during our 3 day stay.
    Had to enter shop to ask where and what we do, a very nice young lady quickly explained to go round building and look out for the other caravan and to park up where ever we wanted and where the shower block was.

    - no information available for do's/dont's on site wasn't sure where to walk the dogs whilst on site, so walked around the veggie patches.

    - horse paddocks, electric fencing live even on paddocks without horses in. None horsey people may not be aware that it is electric fencing, be worth putting up signs.

    On visiting other sites, there has been information available on what/where to visit, recommended pubs, dog walks etc..

    New site with great potential and ideal for exploring the local area. Close to the broads.
    Owner very welcoming and apologetic that he has not finished installing roadway in field when we visited. He had only been open seven weeks and intends continue developing the site at the end of the season without disrupting customers.
    The showers and toilets are inside the Barn and are well appointed, however their is no natural light. Lighting swicthes on automatically via motion detacters, but can switch itself off if no movent is detected.

    Disliked: 

    Despite dedicated water supply to each pitch there wasn't a drain for waste water meaning waste water carriers had to be wheel to waste enclosure. There the waste water carrier had to be hoisted abour a foot above deck lever, there being no ramp to wheel up. The same drain was used for toilet waste and didn't have a cover, though lifting the toilet waste container was not an issue.
    An accessible toilet is provided but not an accessible washroom.
    The showers had a high step to gain entry. Handrails would have helped.
    Would not stay again unless a dedicated accessble washroom and toilet is bult separate from the barn, where level access would not be a problem.

Local attractions

Nosy about Norwich (15 minutes’ drive)? Those of you who aren’t familiar with this cultural city will find there’s much to stick your nose into, from bargain hunting around the old market to a full-on shopping trip or a pitstop tour of the independent eateries and historic sites… the highlight reel includes the hilltop Norwich Castle and the 11th-century cathedral.

Those of you who are keen to weave a bit of the seaside into your way will want to head on over to the sandy beach and dunes at Winterton beach (35 minutes) or onto Great Yarmouth (25 minutes). This seaside resort town is all about the traditional, including a funfair, sandy beaches and the SEA LIFE Great Yarmouth (half an hour) aquarium.

Once you’ve picked out those colourful fishies in the tanks, bigger animals wander around the local wildlife parks and zoos. Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens (25 minutes) has red pandas, tigers and leopards among them, while Pettitts Animal Adventure Park (25 minutes) couples up snakes, wallabies and alpacas with rides and playgrounds.
