They’ve thought of almost everything

Beautiful site, well located and extremely well maintained. Toilets new and spacious, shop well stocked with a plethora of snacks, and helpful staff: one girl saw me struggling with a buggy and a wheelbarrow and offered to push it all the way across to our camping spot. They really seem to care. One small suggestion: maybe add a baby bath to the family changing room?! Thanks for a great stay.

A wonderful few days camping experience!

I really enjoyed my few days camping at Whitlingham Broad campsite for the following reasons: - facilities were very clean and enough of them - staff friendly and helpful - excellent range of accommodation - area provided a range of activities to suit my taste e.g. walking, biking, kayaking. - close to Norwich - easy access. Would recommend to my friends and family!

Wonderful campsite

We stayed at Whitlingham Broad Campsite for 1 week in June. We managed to get probably the best weather that Norwich could give us. The campsite itself is fantastic, the shower/toilet block is spotless and gets cleaned daily, this was my wife's 1st time camping and she was a bit apprehensive - this soon faded as we arrived at the site and she saw the facilities and met the staff. The shop - though small has all your emergency essentials and the staff are friendly and on hand. You are only a short drive to Norwich so if you do need a bigger shop you have the supermarkets within 5 minutes. The surroundings are fantastic everything that you need for a relaxing break, with the opportunity to hire watersports equipment at the lake if you feel a bit more adventurous. The site can get busy at the weekend so worthwhile booking in advance but we had a thoroughly enjoyable time and will definitely book to come back again.

Beautiful and well maintained site

We stayed here on a glorious weekend in June. The site was stunning with easy access to the lake and river. The facilities were well maintained and the staff were really helpful and welcoming. Our children made some friends and we felt happy leaving them to roam and play in the playground. We booked kayaks from the Adventure Centre and had a great time out on the lake. Next time we visit we’ll hire a boat and go along the river. The White Horse was lovely for dinner and a beautiful walk away. All in all a great weekend and we can’t wait to come back.
