Camping in the orchard

General

  • Scenic orchard site on a Norfolk farm
  • Half an hour from Thetford Forest and 50 minutes from Norwich
  • Craft courses and farm shop selling honey, bread and veg

In need of a peaceful getaway that lets you unwind while still keeping your hands busy? Crafty guests should thread their way along to Brakehill Lodge Farm, a family-friendly orchard site on a Norfolk farm half an hour’s drive from Thetford.

With a whole farm to explore, there are scenic walks to take and lengthy bike rides to make, and the peace and quiet to sit down and finally finish that book that’s been taking up space on the nightstand… If switching off completely doesn’t quite fit the bill, never fear: the site regularly runs a whole host of craft courses, from soap and candle making to beekeeping (just remember to check course dates before travelling if something specific is desired).

The site’s also within half an hour of Thetford Forest, putting guests within easy reach of lots of walks, mountain biking trails and the long-distance Peddars Way. That sounds like hungry work so luckily, there’s a small shop in the on-site farmhouse where honey, homemade bread and homegrown veg can be picked up.

    Friendly informative welcome. Quiet and intimate site. Great spot for watching the sunset and seeing the stars. Pretty flowers and fairy lights next to the barn which was a lovely touch. Nice and clean in all areas. Location was great for visiting close by towns and villages.

    Disliked: 

    Didn’t effect us whilst being there but thought 1 shower might be an issue when at full capacity.

From the manager...

Dear Alice,
Thank you for the photos and kind remarks.
Hoping to have more showers for 2021.

all the best

Tranquil location. Good for couples, families, close friends. Loved it09/05/2020

  • Electric grass tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We had mixed weather so loved the option to use the barn, games room, kitchen/diner and the outside bonus was plentiful logs for the outdoor fire pit. Amazing sunsets, great local Indian Restaurant, Derham for take away on 1st night. Handy fridge too! Felt very Covid safe as the owner was very careful about who she allows to book.

    Disliked: 

    Just the noise of the wind but you can’t do anything about the weather and it calmed down after a few days (we stayed a week). It’s a little way from the coastal areas and the Broads but we wouldn’t have had the sense of peace and rusticity that you got from the farm so it’s a balancing act.

    Beautiful, peaceful campsite with a warm welcome. The facilities were clean and the shower good and hot. Perfect after a day in the forest or at the beach. The games room kept our teenagers entertained for hours. A great place for a relaxing break.

    Small and friendly site with only a few pitches. Facilities were ample and cleaned regularly. Fire pit hire was a nice added extra.

    Disliked: 

    Farm dogs barking in the night - woke everybody up on several occasions during the week.

From the manager...

Dear Karen,
Thank you for the review. Next year the dogs will be located at a different farm so just no barking in 2021 from us ;-)

Local attractions

Attention all fishing fans angling for a real catch of a getaway: will proximity to the well-stocked and spectacularly scenic Loch Neaton fishing lake (a mere 10-minute drive from base) prove to be enough of a lure? Pull up a slice of bank and cast a line to try and land carp, bream, perch, roach, rudd, tench or pike in a lucky catch.

Not everyone’s a fan of quiet afternoons with rod and reel, of course. Not to worry, there are plenty more fish in the sea... The Norfolk coast is about an hour’s drive away – head to Holkham beach for swimming and sandy strolls, or make Great Yarmouth the target if the family likes its beaches with a side order of zoo, aquarium, model village, pleasure pier and casino.

History hounds will be well-served hereabouts. The market town of Hingham is 15 minutes from the site and is chock-full of stunning Georgian piles to gaze upon, and the spectacular moated Oxburgh Hall is half an hour away. Prefer to be nosing around in the much more distant past? The Neolithic flint mine Grime’s Graves is well worth a pitstop.

Anyone needing a day of shopping and culture should get in the car for the 50-minute drive to Norwich city centre to explore England’s biggest six-day indoor market and check some of the Norwich 12 (the city’s most iconic buildings) off the list.

Must see

  • Castle Acre Castle (10.7 miles)
  • Grimes Graves (11.6 miles)
  • Banham Zoo (12.2 miles)

National Trust

  • Oxburgh Hall (12.8 miles)
  • Blickling Hall, Gardens and Park (20.8 miles)
