A lovely warm welcome on arrival from the wardens, who offered suggestions for local attractions, beaches etc. The site is kept beautifully, the flower displays are so colourful and pretty. The shower and toilet block are spotless, with plenty of hot water always available. Little shop on site for supplies that opens daily. It a nice steady walk into Norwich city centre from the site. We booked this site to visit national trust properties and it was ideal.

Reading some reviews before booking, some reviewers had been less than kind, but please don't be put off by negative report, relating to the facilities.

Although the site was busy, the only noise was from the train track behind the campsite, but that was intermittent. We would recommend this site to anyone who likes to relax on a lovely campsite, and would like to visit this lovely city of Norwich

We have just spent an enjoyable week at this site. As the site is on the edge of Norwich it is rather noisy. It is between two railway lines and there is quite a lot of car noise. Saying that this wouldn't stop us returning.

The site is small and has a lot of trees, some pitches are completely under trees and this makes it rather dark. We had a pitch in the middle which was lighter.

The facilities are exactly what you would expect on a C&CC site, hot water, clean and I never had to wait to use them.

Plenty to do in the area we visited RAF Museum, Grimes Graves, Oxburgh Hall, Castle Acre and spent a day in Norwich. There were many other things we didn't have time for.

We will certainly revisit the area and would happily stay at this site again

Two male and two female showers is not adequate for this site. To be honest they are not that nice either and you have to pay 20p for hair dryers! People are queuing for a shower!

The pitches are bizarre, felt like we were plonked in the middle of nowhere. For 30 I would expect a super pitch! Not impressed. Spend your money elsewhere ?! Especially don't pay 30!

Seem to be a few dictators here, demanding people move their cars too! It was a bit of entertainment for the rest of the site!

To Find Site:- Leave Norwich Southern Bypass onto A146 and head towards Norwich. At T junction turn left onto Barrett Road. At first set of traffic lights turn left onto Long John Hill passing under railway bridge with 10. 2 foot clearance. Take next left into Martineau Lane and site is a short distance on the right through green gates. The entrance is quite tight so care is required. An alternative route if you require a greater height is rather than turn left at first set of traffic lights continue to second set of light and turn left into Mansfield lane and take second left. At mini roundabout take first left and just past the Cock Inn turn right into Martineau Lane and then as above. (The first option is currently not available as they are replacing the railway bridge but it us due to reopen soon, check with site, particularly if bridge height has changed)

The Norwich C&CC site is not unlike a small French Municipal campsite and equally as rustic as some! It consists of three pitching areas, two for touring units and one for back packing tents which has no vehicular access. The area next to reception has a lot of mature trees but the second touring section is more open. The advantage of this campsite is its close proximity to Norwich City Centre, it also accepts non-members. There are 50 touring pitches, plus tents, all on grass, some may require levelling. For those pitches that have electrics the points use CEE17 blue connectors and are rated at 16amps. The toilet block, whilst kept perfectly clean is somewhat old fashioned and could do with a refurbishment. It does however have a covered dish wash area and a small laundry room. There are limited water points and only one service point which is some distance from the furthest pitches. There is no motorhome service point although there is a tap where you can attach a hose to fill fresh water tanks. Emptying grey water is best done manually, if this is not possible best to discuss this with the site manager to see if a drain cover can be removed. Reception sells a few essentials and has exchange gas bottles. There is site wide WiFi however I found the connection would drop out frequently and you would need to login again. There was a good mobile signal which perhaps could be used as an alternative. Near to the site is a railway line with frequent services so some noise should be expected although we found it did not particularly cause us an issue perhaps because none of the trains were going that fast.

You can walk (uphill) into Norwich which is a distance of just under two miles. Alternatively you can use the regular Monday to Saturday bus service from Cavell Road, the number 39/39A runs at 20 minute intervals but not run into the evening. Obviously Norwich is an excellent shopping centre, including its famous Market and also has a wide choice of restaurants. For more basic supplies there is a general store and fish and chip shop not far from the site. Norwich is also very historic and the Castle Museum is well worth a visit as is the Cathedral. The campsite have City maps so you can plot out the things you want to visit.

Very noisy - constant all-night traffic roar, thundering nearby trains that also hoot their horns. And on my visit, tree pruning and felling with all accompanying machinery whines and thumps. Just glad it wasn't raining because on this busy small site you'll likely get placed under trees. A neighbour warned me that guey stick comes off the leaves.

Positives? Nice small woodland riverside walk. But with outdated ablutions etc (only two gents toilets) and no motorhome service point, I won't be back.

The cheerful warden was quite apologetic over the lack of facilities here but the toilets/showers were clean and functional. Quiet at night except for the resident Tawny Owl, only heard the trains during the day. The bus No. 39 to Norwich runs every 20 mins about a 10 min walk away, near the chippie (directions from warden). The last bus back is 2030 and is the 37B. Didn't try the pub down the road but noticed it was up for sale.
