Can’t decide between a bit of farm life, bright city lights and refreshing coastal explores?

Ditch the dithering and pack the whole lot into one-night stay camping at Two Jays Farm: this small, family-friendly farm is in Horstead, just a 20-minutes drive from Norwich and half an hour from Norfolk’s finest beaches.

You’re in good company here

In the fields adjacent to our campsite, your neighbours will be the Two Jays Farm resident horses, goats and chickens, and you’re welcome to bring along a four-legged pal of your own if you’ve got a dog that fancies the trip.

Canine companion or not, this is a fine spot for getting out for a walk

Set off on foot or cycle along woodland paths and riverbanks to take in sights like the Bure Valley Railway, Horstead Mill on the River Bure (where you can jump into the water for a wild swim if it’s getting a tad warm) and pretty market towns along the way.

Your reward at the end of a lengthy walk?

Perhaps a good feed at one of the nearby foodie pubs! The nearest is less than 10 minutes walk from the site, and there are a few more to choose from – along with some takeaways and a supermarket – in nearby Coltishall village, which is a 20-minute walk away (or a few minutes drive).

Local Attractions

Being right on the Norfolk Broads, Two Jays is well-placed for a range of water activities – you can go fishing, sailing, or rent kayaks and canoes for adventures on the water… or leave the navigating up to someone else and opt for a boat trip instead.

For activities on dry land, visit BeWILDerwood (10-minute drive), a forest park full of trails, treehouses, bridges, zip wires and slides. There’s more action at leisure and shopping complex Wroxham Barns (10 minutes), where there’s a kids’ farm and funfair alongside boutiques, craft studios and eateries.

If you’re heading to the coast, combine beach days with some animal spotting; there’s a zoo in Cromer (half an hour) and a SEA LIFE Centre at Great Yarmouth (40 minutes).

There are a bunch of parks nearby if you’re looking for big open spaces for pleasant ambles, picnics, and kids’ play areas. Try Waterloo Park (15 minutes), Catton Park (15 minutes), Earlham Park (half an hour) or Eaton Park (half an hour).

For a bit of culture, visit the impressive Blickling Estate (15 minutes) and Felbrigg Hall, Gardens and Estate (25 minutes). Or combine a trip to Norwich (20 minutes) with a look at the Cathedral and Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery.
