Thetford Forest camping: the insider’s guide

Norfolk – that’s a splendid place for a holiday. And Suffolk – that’s a splendid place for a holiday too. Can’t decide between the two? Plonk yourselves down right there on the border by picking a campsite near Thetford Forest.

Why Thetford in particular? Well, for starters, it’s in a most handy spot straddling the border with one foot in Norfolk and t’other in Suffolk. And it’s also BIG: the biggest lowland forest in the UK, in fact, stretching out over a whopping 47,000 acres or so. That means heaps of space for folk looking for a UK holiday packed with woodland walks, forest bike trails and rural dog walks. 

Throw into the mix two counties’ worth of other attractions for both families and grownup travellers and you’ll soon spot why we reckon camping near Thetford Forest makes a fab choice for a UK holiday for all ages. (Even the Queen’s got a place up the road, you know, and she’s got the pick of the entire land…)

Thetford campsites and glampsites: bargains and fancy options

Ready to embrace the simple pleasures? A walk in the woods, a campfire, a peaceful place to bed down for the night? We’ve got that sorted – and with prices starting at just a tenner or so per night, you’ll probably have a few coins left over to invest in a pint or two to top off your day out in the woods. Bringing the dog along to join you as you roam the forest trails? (Just think of all those sticks waiting to be chewed…) Take a look at our dog-friendly Thetford camping options.

Something in particular in mind for your break? Use the filters to seek out the place that’s going to be just the one for you. Fancy a bit of fishing maybe? Want to stay in a pub (excellent idea)? Definitely going to need a play area for the kids? Secretly hoping to escape to a place with no kids? We’ve got the whole lot sorted – simply take your pick.

Yes to the campfire, no to the bit where you have to build a tent? No need to miss out on the alfresco life: we’ve got plenty of places for you too if you browse our Thetford glamping options. How about a cute little shepherd’s hut for two, or a stay in a cosy camping pod? If you’re bringing the whole gang along, consider a family-sized bell tent or a stay in a tipi or yurt. 

If you don’t need all the bells and whistles, but you do fancy just a hint of the luxury lifestyle, maybe you’d like to up your game by planning your Thetford Forest camping with a swimming pool, or the chance to bubble away in a hot tub (ooh yes please…)

What to do on your Thetford Forest camping break

Well, you’ll clearly be wanting to visit the forest, right? Bring along walking boots or bikes for the trails and pick up maps at the visitor centre to ensure you don’t get lost (best not to be wandering off oblivious into such a huge forest, eh?) A pair of binoculars might not be a bad plan too – this is red deer territory and you may well want to get a closer look at the splendid beasts.

This is a fine part of the world for those trying to get the nippers enthused by outdoor activities: the forest’s Gruffalo trail is a great place to start, and they’ll most likely love being up in the treetops at the Go Ape adventure park too. 

Back down at ground level, it’s worth seeking out the ancient Grime’s Graves site, taking pony or horse rides through the forest or bringing your clubs along for a round on the gorgeous golf course that’s tucked away among the trees.

And what about elsewhere? A Thetford camping break isn’t all about the forest… you might like to get your history hat on for visits to Oxburgh Hall, Wymondham Abbey and Ickworth House, or chuff and puff your way through the countryside on the Mid Norfolk Railway. Banham Zoo is a popular pick for family days out, while the tipples of St George’s Distillery might entice the adults away from the forest for a bit. Want to swap woodland for seaside? You can get to the north Norfolk coast or the smart Suffolk seaside villages with a drive of an hour or so.
