General

  • Traditional family site near Dereham, in meadows around a working farm
  • Wildlife haven with woodland and plenty of space, away from main roads
  • Heated shower and toilet block, launderette and hairdryers

Your fledglings should love this farm site – and those in charge of the flock are very likely to agree. Park Farm Camping near Dereham in Norfolk is simple, affordable and no-frills… but doesn’t skimp on the amenities either: the heated shower and toilet block even has free hairdryers in the ladies for those of you who like to keep barnets shipshape at all times.

The site is managed by Julie and Derek, who run the place as a traditional and safe site for small fry and their tribes: it’s in meadows around a working farm, with wildlife all around and farm animals to see in the next field. There’s heaps of space even in the height of summer for all the herd (including the dog) to run around, as well as a wood to explore and a small play area to swing around – with everything secluded away from main roads for chicks to be safely free range. All this, and campfires are allowed too.

Other creature comforts at Park Farm include a launderette, free wifi, public phone and a shop to pick up essentials. Off site, a pub, deli, village shop, bakery, post office, grocer and butcher are all in Swanton Morley a couple of minutes’ drive away.

    Well what we can say, absolutly fantastic!!! The staff are amazing, so friendly and helpful, the site is run perfectly with a lovely relaxed atmosphere, we will definatly be revisiting... our little boy has autism and really took a shine to rod who took time to speak to him every single day it was lovely to have a site so accepting of him... the site is very spacious and we loved the little shop for icecreams that much we had one everyday, nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, its nice to go home with hardly any washing as the laundrette was lovely and cheap so we did it on site!!! Park is fantastic for the kids... the site put everything possible in place with regards to covid 19... the site is close to so many coastal towns we enjoyed so many days out but also loved spending days around the caravan having a fire with logs and fire provided by the site for 15 quid for your stay, absolute bargain.... THANKYOU SO MUCH TO DEREK AND ALL THE TEAM. We will hopefully see you next year xx extra special thankyou from the tent pitch too.

    Nicely situated site. Owners friendly. Plenty of room between pitches. Toilet and shower blocks not too busy. Can have camp fire is you wish via camp owner.

    Maybe a rule about guests being quiet after 11pm since there were kids on site?

Thank you so much for your great review and 8/10 score." Bin areas would be better sited away from pitches" Not sure what you mean none are near pitches, and "central shared barbecue area a little unkempt" Far More important to maintain toilet and shower facilities but your observation has been taken on board thank you.However glad you enjoyed your stay with us in these testing times.

Directions


From Norwich, take the A47 towards King's Lynn or the A1065 Fakenham, and take the B1147 to Swanton Morley. At Darby's Free House, take the Elsing Road. Take the second right to the junction, then turn left for Hunter's Hall.

Warning: do not follow satnav directions if you are in motorhomes or touring caravans or if towing any trailer. Do not use Norwich Road – use only Elsing Road from junction with B1147 (Darby's pub).

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Use Park Farm Camping as a base to explore north Norfolk and Norwich, or stay close to home and explore the paths and lanes for walking and pedalling around the Wensum Valley: leaflets and brochures on acres’ worth of visitor attractions are at the Park Farm reception.

The River Wensum is on the edge of the farm estate with free fishing for Park Farm Camping guests on the two miles where the river flows through nearby Castle Farm (not available during season from 16 March-16 June), or cast off at the Norfolk coast about half an hour away to try your luck at landing mackerel, bass and cod.

You could pick a beach or seaside town to drive to every day of your holiday at Park Farm: seal spotting boat trips from Morston and Blakeney as well as swishing around somewhat swanky Wells-next-the-Sea and Burnham Market (aka Chelsea-on-Sea) are all within 40 minutes' drive. Within 50, make for the Pleasure Beach (and racecourse) at Great Yarmouth or the crabbing, funfair and zoo at Cromer, both top picks to seaside antics.

Other eclectic options within accessible reach of Park Farm Camping include padding around Liz II’s pad at royal Sandringham and other old houses like Holkham Hall: both are around 45 minutes away. Norwich is 25 minutes from the site.
