  • Farm site just north of Norwich
  • Seven acres of flat and well-drained land
  • Communal covered firepit area
Reach for the skies and enjoy a stopover at Top Farm Caravan and Camping Site where you can experience dizzy new heights among the woodland of the Norfolk countryside. The aptly-named farm is just north of Norwich in the small town of Marsham, 20 minutes from the pretty Norfolk coast. It’s been owned by generations of the same family and you’ll feel on top of the world during your stay: seven acres of well-drained, flat land and views of the Norfolk countryside to make for some very happy guests... Keep your feet on the ground with a stroll into the woodlands of Marsham Heath, which back on to the campsite. Top-notch facilities include a dishwashing area and a well-maintained toilet block with an equally well-looked after separate shower block, all with plenty of hot water. A chemical waste disposal point, fridge/freezer and a communal covered area with firepit and chiminea are also ready for guests to use.

Powered grass campsite

Liked: A warm and informative welcome from the site owners. Plenty of advice offered about the local landscape, accessible areas and amenities. Good facilities including a designated communal fridge/freezer area. Clean and well maintained all round. Heath and woodland very close by for birders like me.

Disliked: Not so much a dislike but a comment on the track up to the site. Lots of potholes which when fall of water can be cause uncertain navigation. Perhaps not the responsibility of the site itself. But the holes could do with being filled somehow, if the rain ever stops.

Liked: The owner told us to pitch the tent to get the best view. Lovely walk from site and big field for granddaughter to run around.

Disliked: Paying £1 for showers and there was only two. There was a wedding in next field for the weekend so you could hear music for two days. Some people may not like this but we did not mind.

Primitive grass campsite

Liked: Friendly owner, had everything we needed and more, left us in peace, plus fridge, electric, showers, decent toilets with hot water for washing hands, picnic benches, plenty of space for kids to play. Lovely views, and walks A*

Disliked: Not an issue, but awareness to others that the road leading to the site has plenty of potholes. Take it slowly.

Primitive grass campsite

Liked: The campsite was spacious and all facilities were really clean. The owner was really welcoming and shared lots of information about local amenities. The location was brilliant as only 29 mins from the beach at Cromer but also only 30 mins from Norwich, and 2 fantasric NT properties kn the doorstep. We loved walking through Marsham Heath with out 18 month old, which backed on to the campsite, and walking through thr fields to the local pub for dinner.

Local attractions

Wave hi to north Norfolk’s seafronts and lap up the entertainment you’ll find for all. Less than half an hour from the coast, the five beaches closest to Top Farm will all have you diving in feet first to their top-quality bathing water. You’ll be on just the right track with little locomotive enthusiasts as you chug along to the Bure Valley Railway - Norfolk’s longest 15-inch gauge line. The 18-mile round trip runs from Aylsham to Wroxham and back and you can get aboard at either stop (each are around 30 minutes in the car north or south of Top Farm). Controllers-in-the-making will be steaming with delight as they spot the wildlife in the rivers and meadows along the way; the cycle and walking trail which runs alongside the line is a rail treat too. Go wild at BeWILDerwood 13 miles away, for a creepy-crawlingly good day: this is the Norfolk Broads as you’ve never seen before... from treehouses to tricky tunnels and storybook characters young bookworms will be wriggling to meet, the intriguing characters hanging around the BeWILDerwood forest put an interesting ‘folk’ into Norfolk, and kids will be desperate to get exploring. Thorpe Marshes is 30 minutes south by car where you can spy species of damsel- and dragonfly and Cockshoot Broads, around half an hour to the east, is brilliant for birdspotters. A 15-minute drive northward is Blickling, a National Trust property which will have historians hankering to find out more about the area. The Muddy Boots café on site means everyone’s invited for a scone, no matter how you get there…
