Puddledock Farm Caravan & Camping Site is located near the border of Norfolk & Suffolk, close to many local attractions, historic sites, nature reserves & museums. Set in 15 1/2 acres of level grass, our guests enjoy having the space to relax and enjoy the open air!

The park is open all year round and welcomes motor homes, RVs, touring caravans, camper vans, tents & backpackers. There are also six camping pods available, ideal for camping without worrying about the weather!

We are situated right on the edge of Thetford Forest, the largest lowland forest in the UK, with walking and cycling routes accessible directly from the site. The forest is home to six species of deer, badgers, foxes, birds of prey and even a herd of Highland cows. Nature groups, artists, photographers and even astronomers are regular visitors , with many schools and youth groups taking advantage of our proximity to the famous Roman Road, Peddar's Way. Nearby High Lodge presents an all year round calendar of live music and other events, which makes us popular for short stop overs and long weekends.

Two local pubs welcome all our guests, including the four legged variety, and both offer traditional pub fare with good prices and a friendly atmosphere. Why not meet up for a drink with the friends you'll make on site? Menus and reservation can be requested at reception.

My wife and I (and our two dogs) spent a long weekend at this site last summer. The surrounding countryside is very beautiful, with lots of forest walks to keep us busy.
Happily, whilst exploring part of the nearby Peddars Way walk, we happened upon a delightful little traditional country pub - The Dog & Partridge, in Wretham. Friendly atmosphere, delicious food, and the dogs were welcomed.
Next time we travel through this area, we are most certainly returning to this pub for dinners!
