General

  • Farm site spread over 12 acres of Norfolk countryside
  • A 35-minute drive from Norwich and the Norfolk coast beaches
  • Peaceful working farm with a games area and farm shop deliveries

Take a trip to the 12 acres of top terrain that makes up Algy’s Farm Campsite in Norfolk, 35 minutes’ drive from Norwich and around the same distance from the coast around Cromer and Blakeney.

The site is run by a friendly family who also look after a busy farm shop selling local produce in nearby Bintree (10 minutes). Order groceries online to be delivered to your tent, whether just ahead of your arrival or after a long day out at the beaches.

The park is a peaceful wildlife haven, but please keep in mind that it is on a working arable farm so care should be taken on the grounds and children will need to be supervised. Off base, explore the Norfolk coast (around 35 minutes' drive) or potter along the Peddars Way.

There are toilets, hot showers, washing-up facilities and a water standpipe at the park, as well as a games area – and with several square metres allocated to each pitch there's plenty of space to breathe too.

    Lack of toilets, queued both days and webpage explained to others reviews in June that there would be more toilets in peak times. August is peak and 2 toilets for women is not enough when we have children and periods to manage.

From the manager...

Hi Kelly. Thanks for your comments We will be looking to add more facilities in the future as demand was unexpectedly high.

    Veeeery friendly and helpful owners.
    Decent pitches size.
    Nice clean hot showers.
    Very reasonable price
    Quietness, nature, night sky with lots of stars...
    We were actually even twice there during the summer.

    Disliked: 

    Not a dislike as such, but would mind a mirror and some sinks in the shower block so, that you can brush your teeth there. Also, some light above the washing up area would make it more convenient in the evening.

From the manager...

Thanks for your comments. The campsite is very new so any suggestions on improvements are certainly welcome.

    We had the most wonderful stay here, the site is spotless and very well looked after. The owners are more than happy to go above and beyond to make your stay perfect. The location is so peaceful, you definitely leave feeling well rested and stress free. We will be booking here again and I'll remember my travel telescope for the spectacular night sky.

    Disliked: 

    Showers could do with a bench or seat in each cubicle to put your belongings on and help the less mobile of us to get dressed.

From the manager...

Thanks for your suggestions for improvements. We are working hard to make this new campsite even better and accessible for all.

    Shower and toilet facilities, friendliness and helpfulness of owners, and the sunset!

    Disliked: 

    Proximity to local amenities, closeness of pitches (we were woken several times in the night by snoring and screaming!). Pitch up advert specifies a ‘games area’ - there is no games area, just ample grass!

From the manager...

Hi Danni. Unfortunately we cant control the snoring and screaming of other campers/children. We will look at how we can develop the games area in the future.

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We loved the quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The pitch sizes were a decent size. The fire pits and wood were supplied at no extra cost. The owners were helpful and friendly and checked in on everyone but were not intrusive. The amenities such as the showers and toilets were clean and easily accessible. One of the highlights was the wood fired pizzas that we were able to order a d collect from the farm shop. Definitely recommend and would visit again. Thank you.

    Disliked: 

    It was a shame the pop up farm shop wasn’t open on sight and that there was not a play area for the children as stated when booking, but this did not affect our stay as we were able to use the adjacent field to play games and the farm shop and local supermarket was only a 10-15 min drive.

From the manager...

Unfortunately due to Covid issues we have been understaffed this summer and not been able to implement the onsite shop. We are hoping this will be in place next summer!

    Good sized pitch and well spaced out. Good location. Clean facilities.

    Disliked: 

    Small toilet facilities with tiny basin. Not the same bathroom facilities as shown in the photo. Poor directions. 3 mile drive from farm shop (misleading that farm shop is on same site)

From the manager...

The shop was originally supposed to be in place this summer, however, with several self-isolations taking place we were unable to fulfil this. Directions were emailed to each customer, so apologies if these were not clear. The blue toilet block is the one shown on the website, however, the shower block was an addition before the summer started. We will be looking to add more facilities due to the recent increase of camping.
