General

  • Peaceful rural site on the edge of Thetford Forest
  • Easy access to Norwich, Bury St Edmunds and the Norfolk coast
  • Fishing pond on site stocked with carp, tench and roach

Duck down here if you seek a peaceful and friendly park with immaculate amenities, loads of scenic green space, fine fishing, roomy pitches and a family-friendly vibe – all on the edge of a forest with easy access to days out of all flavour.

Directly on the edge of Thetford Forest (Britain’s biggest manmade lowland forest, woodland fact fans), Puddledock Farm Caravan Site is well placed for the Broads and the Norfolk coast at Cromer, Great Yarmouth and Holkham, and Norfolk’s towns and cities like Norwich and Bury St Edmunds. It's prime hiking and cycling territory too: the Peddars Way passes close to the site and 26 trails are around to hike in Thetford Forest.

The tree-lined park is spacious and well laid out, with its own fishing pond stocked with carp, tench and roach, a dog walk directly off site and excellently-kept and warm amenities. The site caters for families (immediate members) and couples only – bookings from all other forms of groups are not accepted.

    Very clean and tidy site. COVID measures were excellent will reduced capacity in the toilets and showers. Direct access to miles of forest trails — just a gate at the bottom of the site.

  • Camping pod (no pets, deluxe, adults only)

    Spent the night in a deluxe pod. It was fantastic. The staff were very helpful and friendly upon arrival.
    The grounds are very secure with a coded barrier.
    The site was very clean and well maintained, very welcoming.
    The camping pod was spotlessly clean and it had been warned with the heater prior to our arrival. The pod had everything we could have needed for a great stay. Fridge freezer, kettle, TV, bed, small table and chairs. It was also situated very close to the toilet and shower block which was very convenient.
    The showered and toilets were very clean and modern, easy to use.
    This is a lovely place to stay, very quiet and peaceful. There are some great walks through Thetford from the park itself or from a very short drive away. We will definitely be returning to this lovely place.
