General

  • Peaceful adults-only site in a birdwatching haven
  • Two fishing lakes with carp, tench, roach, rudd and bream
  • A 10-minute stroll to Higham with shops and a dog-friendly inn

Hoot. And (fishing) hook. Big folk, come and join the owls, hawks, red kites, muntjac deer and other local inhabitants round and about adults-only Rectory Farm Fishing and Camping Site in Norfolk.

Bring your rod and licence to tackle the slippery specimens at Rectory Farm’s two fishing lakes, filled with mostly carp and tench, and smaller shoals of roach, rudd and bream to try your hand at for a day or half-day charge.

The lakes are as well maintained as the site facilities, where guests have access to toilets, showers, taps with drinking water, a fridge freezer, sinks with hot water all day and night, waste disposal point and picnic benches to take in the views. Dogs are welcome and have special areas on site for energetic walks.

From Rectory Farm, it’s a safe 10-minute stroll to Hingham, with the dog-friendly White Hart inn, shops, bakers and butcher to pick up sausages and other essentials for the evening campfire.

    Fantastic site with a great feel and relaxed attitude to all. This is our second stay in the past 2 months and would highly recommend. The fishing was good and the quality of the fish was exceptional. We were on a hard standing with the Motorhome but grass pitches very good, even with the heavy rain we had towards the end of the week there seemed no problem. The non electric pitches set back in the field with individual mowed out sections look fabulous, especially at night with the supplied fire pits blazing away, best use of old stainless washing machine drums ever. Had some nice walks with the dogs on the mowed tracks within the fields, and the village is only a 10-15 minute walk away depending on stride and fitness that is. The Wifi had good signal and streamed some movies on the very rainy days, that's the UK for you, had 25 degrees on day in brilliant sun, rain and 10 the next.

    Everything was good at rectory farm apart from the weather which of course is out of everyone’s control. The site is great for fishing which is a matter of feet from any pitch. There are great routes to walk your dog if you do not wish to explore Norfolk and just stop on site.

    Hingham has all you need, A small Coop, shop, boots, fish and chip shop, pub and a tea room bistro.

    We will book again however we need a long range forecast well in advance LOL

    Staff we great.
    TY

    Disliked: 

    Shower block needs an update but it does what it says on the tin. The bin area was full on arrival and was the same when we left therefore this may need some consideration of an uplift of bins or more collections.
    I do wish dog walkers would pick up their mess. I am a dog owner and always carry bags. Lazy , inconsiderate people . IT TAKES TWO MINUTES. Grrrrrrrr I would be happy for the site to fine people which may focus their minds.

Local attractions

Once you’ve put down the fishing rod, head to Hingham with the camera to snap some shots of very fashionable houses: Hingham’s popularity with posh Georgians who came here in the 18th-century led to the town being labelled Little London. The eastern side of the market place is said to have the best collection of Georgian houses in Norfolk, perfect for pics and a possible rant about 21st-century property prices (buy a motorhome instead).

From Hingham, it’s about 17 miles east to Norwich, Norfolk’s capital town and filled with a capital amount of attractions such as England’s biggest six-day indoor market, the greatly-sized Gothic fountain at the Plantation Garden and the ‘Norwich 12’, 12 listed buildings in the city including stupendous Norwich Cathedral.

Keep driving your way east to reach the Norfolk Broads: their 125 miles of navigable waterways are where to go in Norfolk for all things boat, whether you want to try a guided river trip to wildlife spot, hire a boat to drift lazily down the water or take out a canoe for placid paddling. The Broads have several good angling lakes to pick from too, or try sea fishing off the beach from Sea Palling round to the coast at Great Yarmouth.

A 45-minute drive from Rectory Farm will bring you to the gorgeous beaches of the north Norfolk coast and the 45 miles of the North Norfolk Coastal Path, going from Hunstanton to Cromer via Wells and Blakeney in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Must see

  • Banham Zoo (9.5 miles)
  • Bressingham Steam and Gardens (14.0 miles)
  • Grimes Graves (14.1 miles)
