Old Buckenham Country Park: Camping pitch

General

  • Well-equipped family-friendly Norfolk site over 26 acres
  • A 35-minute drive from Norwich and 15 minutes from Snetterton Circuit
  • Fishing, obstacle course, fitness classes and licensed café

Grab rod and reel, prepare for some serious ‘you time’, and park up for a few days at Old Buckenham Country Park, a family-friendly site less than five minutes’ drive from the Norfolk village of Old Buckenham.

Starting stays with a thorough explore of the 26-acre site is a must. There are two lakes to watch wildlife by, bug hotels to fascinate inquisitive kids and grownups, and a mile-long obstacle course with a path alongside it for running. Explores all done, opt in to some of the fitness classes available on site.

Fishers should take special note of those lakes, claiming a patch of shore to set up for a day of peaceful catching. Fish aren’t the only animals to track down either: twitchers won’t be able to keep from craning their necks, with eyes peeled for chickens (on the ground, not in the sky), ducks, geese, kingfishers, swans and owls.

That’s a lot to fill days, so be sure to spend evenings having relaxed moments next to the firepits dotted around site. When food starts beckoning, there are barbecues to borrow (if one hasn’t been brought from home) and pub grub at one of the Old Buckenham locals. A licensed café is open on site from Thursday to Sunday for sweet treats and drinks too, which should help keep energy and spirits up as you relax on the deck overlooking the lake (a particularly fine view at sunset…)

Please note

Swimming in the lake is not allowed.

No naked flames are allowed inside the hired accommodation units.

If making a fire, the fuel, logs and coal have to be purchased on site.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the campground/park are unlit.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

The bar is open between 01/04 and 31/10.

No cars/motorcycles at the site. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

Fires, barbecues and/or firepits will not be permitted in dry, windy and/or hot weather conditions.

    Location, lovely pond and bar area, new wash facilities

    Disliked: 

    Toilets/showers had a really bad smell around 11am which I trust is due to lots of use perhaps, however it would be good if this was investigated as it was quite strong smell.

    Check in experience felt like an effort by the young lady behind the bar.

    There is no Wi-Fi and whilst it’s not something we would have used, it is really handy for an emergency or to watch a sports match restfully

    This was our second time here and once again it was faultless. We had an emergency at home on our arrival day so we didn't get there until around 8pm. I had spoken to Debbie during the day and she advised that we wouldn't have an issue whatever time we turned up. On arrival the warden had all of our details and kindly showed us to our pitch. Due to an oversite with booking from a website they were completely full so Debbie had arranged us to hook up in the Glamping section which only had 2 other vans. (Everyone loves a cheeky upgrade). Whilst we were setting up Ben (the boss man) came on his rounds and checked we were OK. We had friends on site already and asked if they could join us. Ben said it was fine, but check in the morning with Debbie to make sure there were no new arrivals. The next morning we spoke to her and our friends moved over straight away. We had an Great weekend and we have now decided this is our "Go to" place. Many thanks guys we will be back.

    Disliked: 

    Poor internet connection, no wifi.
    The ponds should be clean from grass etc
    In the evening you could hear noises from the road, like motorcycles.
    Mini shop should be available on the site, and hot breakfast also.

    WE REALLY LOVED THIS SITE AND ITS INFORMALITY. We were there for the latter part of the bank holiday weekend. When we arrived in the early evening of Sunday, the cafe/bar was very busy, but by the time we left on Tuesday late morning everywhere was very quiet.
    It's a great site and I love the 'green feel' with the rainwater etc. Also loved the obstacle course round the edge of the field and enjoyed watching the younger campers enjoy themselves.

    Disliked:

Local attractions

Anyone keen on craft booze may have found the ideal spot here. The site is 10 minutes’ drive from Elmtree Beers brewery and its on-site shop, and tours and tastings are to be had at English Whisky Co distillery, also 10 minutes away. If the vino is more appealing, it’s 35 minutes from base to Winbirri Vineyard for tours and tastings of reds, whites and sparkling wines.

Thirsts quenched, turn next to Snetterton Circuit (15 minutes) where – during well-timed stays – guests can join the crowds to watch the GT Cup final, Mini races, time attack trials and fireworks. Not able to travel for a race? Have a go on the circuit yourself, with track days and training days available for cars and motorbikes.

Those who prefer a slower pace to their holidays can skirt Snetterton and opt instead for leisurely days among exotic birds, ferocious beasties and peaceable pets at Banham Zoo (five minutes), or hanging about with the alpacas in the nearby town of Diss (15 minutes).

When some time away from rural bliss is required, a 35-minute drive will land guests in Norwich to explore castle and cathedral, stroll in stunning gardens, learn a bit about history at one of the many museums, or burn a hole in wallets with shopping at the Norwich Market or in high-street stores.

Must see

  • Banham Zoo (3.2 kilometres)
  • Bressingham Steam and Gardens (9.5 kilometres)
  • Colman's Mustard Shop and Museum (24.4 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds (34.2 kilometres)
  • Oxburgh Hall (34.8 kilometres)
