About Plum Camping at White House Farm
Suitable ForTents, campervans, kids, dogs (on leads) – yes. Caravans, larger motorhomes and noisy groups – no.
A lot of people come to Norfolk for the coast and it's a 30-minute drive to the nearest beaches around Walcott, Sea Palling and Happisburgh and a little further to the likes of Cromer and Mundesley but, from White House Farm the two major options are actually far closer. Firstly there's Norwich, a compact city with a castle museum (01603 493625) and grand cathedral (01603 218300) and, along with plenty of well-known shops and big names, a host of good independents in the Lanes portion of the city. You can take bus number 11 from a stop near the entrance to the farm and get into the city centre in half an hour. Secondly, you can skip the city in favour of the watery countryside and explore the Norfolk Broads. It's a 10-minute drive to Wroxham where you can hire day boats or canoes and explore the waterways – take a picnic and motor along to Wroxham Broad where you can enjoy food on the boat as you watch the sailing boats race on weekends. Those with kids should also try BeWILDerwood (01692 633033), a famed Broads family attraction with tree bridges, boat rides and all sorts of creative mysteries.
Food & Drink
Grab food to cook over the campfire from the farm shop or have a bite to eat in the café. Off site, take the bus in to Norwich where there are endless options – Frank's Bar (01603 618902), Café 33 (01603 626097) and Harriet's Tearooms (01603 614848) are particular favourites if you can get a seat or try something from the market. For a good pub, book ahead for The Recruiting Sergeant in Horstead (01603 737077), 15 minutes' drive away.

Plum Camping at White House Farm is located at White House Farm, Wroxham Road, Rackheath, Norwich, Norfolk NR7 8RN
On the A1270 dual carriageway, follow signs for Wroxham but, once at the roundabout to turn off to Wroxham, take the exit for Norwich and head towards Norwich on Wroxham Road. One mile later you'll hit another roundabout where there are brown tourist signs to follow to White House Farm. Once you reach the White House Farm car park, head to the far left of the car park and drive on up to Plum Camping.
There are two regular options for public transport. Bus 11 stops at the entrance to White House Farm (you'll still need to walk down the entrance driveway) and takes about 30 minutes to reach the very middle of the city centre and the train station. Or you can head over to the Sprowston Park and Ride Station (a couple of minutes by car or a 25-minute walk) and then go on the number 502 park-and-ride service.
