FAQs

Information
Some useful answers to questions
we often get asked.

Can I book over the phone?

   No. Usually Bernie is either splitting wood, driving tractors or busy on the campsite, so he can’t take down any booking details over the phone. Please use the online booking form or put it in an email and we will get back to you ASAP.

Do I need to reserve a campfire/brazier?

   No, we always have enough to go around.

We have a really really massive tent. Is there an extra charge?

   No. We have lots of space so there is no limit on tent size.

Can we bring a gazebo/ pup tent/ cooking shelter etc?

   Yes. There is no extra charge for extra tents.

We are holidaying with friends. Can we all camp together?

   Yes. There is always room for groups to camp together.

Can we bring our own firewood?

   No, we only allow wood supplied by us to be burnt on the site. Our wood is very good quality, seasoned, and chopped to the perfect size to work with our braziers.

Can we re-freeze our ice blocks on-site?

   Yes, we have a freezer that can be used for re-freezing ice-blocks.

Do you provide dishwashing facilities?

   Yes we do. But please bring your own washing up liquid and scrubbers.

Where are the closest shops?

   Acle (pronounced A-cul) is the nearest town and should have everything you need. There, you will find 2 supermarkets (Budgens and Co op), 2 butchers, a post office, a newsagents, a chemists, a hardware store, a petrol station, a library and a health centre. They also have a market every Thursday.
Turning right out of the campsite, follow the road for 2 miles and go straight on at the mini roundabout. There are some good walks to and from the town, including the 8 mile ‘shoppers loop’.

We broke our tent/ forgot our tent pegs/tent/sleeping bags. Help!

   If you have a tent emergency, firstly speak to Bernie. He keeps a supply of spare pegs, air bed pumps, repair poles and even spare tents.

If it’s something more major, or you just fancy some new camping gear, we recommend Norwich Camping and Leisure. They have a large store selling all types of outdoor gear and camping equipment, a field of  display tents to explore and a cafe. Find out more at www.norwichcamping.co.uk
