About Plum Camping at White House Farm

Suitable For

Tents, campervans, kids, dogs (on leads) – yes. Caravans, larger motorhomes and noisy groups – no.

Nearby

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.

Peaceful and relaxing, with very clean facilities.

A perfect place to camp, lots of nature and beautiful sunset views to enjoy. Facilities were very clean and easy to access. Stayed midweek for a couple of nights which was lovely and quiet. It was starting to get busier when I left Friday, as you would expect in the summer holidays. Great farm shop on site and other craft shops too. Purchased some Norfolk Raider cider to take home from the onsite brewery, which was a bonus. A short drive to Wroxham and a great afternoon out on the Broads Boat trip. Would highly recommend this gem of a campsite 👍

A little gem of a campsite

Super little campsite with plenty of space and freedom to pitch where you like. Toilets, showers and washing up facilities on site, all spotlessly clean. Added bonus of a farm shop adjoining, great for fresh produce and the odd treat. My only gripe is not with the campsite but with some guests that think site rules don’t apply to them and unfortunately we were pitched next to some of them so had to endure 3 badly behaved dogs causing havoc off lead and music blaring all day. Next time hopefully the owners will have found a means of dealing with guests who flout the rules. All in all a super little site

Lovely peaceful campsite

We loved our stay here, the campsite was peaceful, and we like that it was sheltered by hedges on each side to help block the wind. They also kept areas of the site with long grass to break it up and this added a nice feel to the site. The facilities were fantastic, with open air showers and toilets, plus a shower/toilet that is 'inside' too. We loved the outside sinks too, it was just perfect for a covid safe weekend away. There were also fridges and bbq/fires to use which was a nice touch. The farmshop on site was an added bonus. We bought some fab fresh produce for our breakfast/dinner (it's just a shame they didn't do a fry up breakfast in the cafe there, but the cake was lovely!) All in all, a great site and we would love to visit again!

Absolutely perfect!

We have been to several campsites and this site we found perfect. The location on the edge of the broads gave access to so many potential activities, within 30 minutes you can be canoeing on the broads, letting the children run wild in Bewilderwood or grabbing some inner city entertainment in Norwich. The site provides ample space and the facilities were clean and all worked well, it was the perfect middle ground between the new craze of wild camping and the highly commercial expanses of tarmac and pea shingle you find at other sites. Would highly recommend it to anyone as it made the ideal base for our weekend away as a family.

Getting There

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.
