Black Barn Farm: Electric Pitches

General

  • Peaceful adults-only touring site two miles from the Norfolk Broads
  • A 15-minute drive from Norwich city centre; 25 minutes from the coast
  • Atmospheric night-time vibes from lit woodlands

If boating on The Broads has long been on your bucket list, the dog-friendly Black Barn Farm is a peaceful place to pitch up two miles from the edge of the national park. Here, the adults-only touring pitches are in a 22-acre field in an established orchard and surrounded by woodlands, making for a rather chilled-out stay.

This area is known as the big sky country, so splendid sunsets and lights in the trees create a pretty nice night-time vibe. You’ll be able to kick off the evening with a firepit or barbecue too, as both are permitted on site.

A 15-minute drive from Norwich, this site is on the edge of Salhouse, a rural Broads village. So, bridleways and footpaths may be the first thing to capture your attention, as they lead the way to walking, wildlife spotting and canoe hire in the Salhouse Broad – or there's a place to launch your own canoe or paddleboard, two miles away from the site.

Convenience is key at this site, starting with the toilets and showers inside the barn, all heated with auto light switches for that extra ease. Then, there’s a train station and bus station within walking distance of the site with regular services to Norwich city centre or the coast.

Foodie? The local food shop is a 20-minute walk away along a public footpath (or a five-minute car journey). For more specific bits, there’s a bigger supermarket 10 minutes’ drive away and beer aficionados will find a brewery and pub five minutes’ drive away too.

    Disliked: 

    It says on the website, the first thing you notice is the amount of bridal ways. There was none, 0. When I asked the owner, even they did know of any. This was one of the main reasons why we chose this site over others in the area.
    That was a shame.

    Did have a normal sink to use to wash or shave. Only a small sink in the toilet for hands and a large sink outside for dishes.

Lovely site. Close to railway station. Well set-up.09/22/2022

    It is a modern farm with pitches available behind the main barn. Pitches are large and flat. The toilet and shower facilities are brand new and were clean as well. There are two large outside steel sinks with a draining board area and running hot and cold water which can be used for washing up.

    I really enjoyed our stay here. On one of the days we walked to Salhouse train station and caught the train (one stop) into Norwich and had a lovely day. Trains seemed frequent even though it was the Queens funeral and therefore a bank holiday service.

    Disliked: 

    We were not met; and were unclear whether/where we could leave rubbish. However, on leaving we discussed with the owner and he said that the area had been moved due to flies and that he would address it.

Local attractions

Nosy about Norwich (15 minutes’ drive)? Those of you who aren’t familiar with this cultural city will find there’s much to stick your nose into, from bargain hunting around the old market to a full-on shopping trip or a pitstop tour of the independent eateries and historic sites… the highlight reel includes the hilltop Norwich Castle and the 11th-century cathedral.

Those of you who are keen to weave a bit of the seaside into your way will want to head on over to the sandy beach and dunes at Winterton beach (35 minutes) or onto Great Yarmouth (25 minutes). This seaside resort town is all about the traditional, including a funfair, sandy beaches and the SEA LIFE Great Yarmouth (half an hour) aquarium.

Once you’ve picked out those colourful fishies in the tanks, bigger animals wander around the local wildlife parks and zoos. Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens (25 minutes) has red pandas, tigers and leopards among them, while Pettitts Animal Adventure Park (25 minutes) couples up snakes, wallabies and alpacas with rides and playgrounds.
