    Lovely simple campsite, we will return :-)
    Stayed 1 night with my 9-year old daughter and it was a lovely site, fantastic price just for a night away. Very basic just with Loos (porta-loo and compost toilets) and a water tap. Nice and small only 1 field and just minutes away from the water. You can park in the field next to the campsite so not far to carry your stuff which is wonderful! We took a small firebox and a grill to raise it off the ground for our campfire but there were some larger fire baskets already onsite for some of the pitches. There is no electricity onsite and the stars were amazing. There is a play area just over the hedge and we booked a canoe for the next day and got 10% discount for booking at same time as paying for the camping. Salhouse is a lovely place to canoe it was peaceful and great to just pootle about on the water and have a picnic. Would definitely come back again. I would mention that we had lively tent neighbours who were having a merry time until the early hours. With the campsite being so small and the pitches being reasonably close together the noise level meant that we didn't get much sleep! Totally fine for one night, it's all part of the camping experience and that aside it really was a lovely night away.

    3 night camping
    Very simple lovely small camp site. Situated near to a broad where you can hire canoe's. Can hire a fire pit and buy wood. Pub 10 min walk. If you like simple and lovely it's your campsite. Note though. No showers. A standpipe for drinking water. Compost toilet and porta loos. We enjoyed a 3 night stay. W

    Gorgeous campsite and canoe hire
    This is a gorgeous, peaceful campsite. It’s basic (porter-loos and water point) but I love that. You can hire a fire, buy some wood, hire a canoe/kayak, get a little food and drink from the little shack, ware the children out on the playground and stargaze on the stargazing platform! There is also a pub (the fur and feathers) within a 20 minute walk but you will need to book (you will understand why when you try it!). Anyway, I digress, back to the campsite! It’s clean and tidy but that’s not much of a surprise with the rangers checking regularly! Talking of the rangers… they are lovely, chatty and know their stuff! This campsite has rules and if you don’t abide by them and you have complaints against you, they will not hesitate to kick you off the site. But when you learn about the business, you understand why these rules are there, it also helps to create the amazingly peaceful place. It’s halfway between Horning (another gorgeous please, worth a paddle to…even if it’s just to visit the new inn - you can moore up as it’s right on the waters edge!) and Wroxham (nice but the water is very busy with motor boats!). The campsite is gorgeous and peaceful and I cannot wait to go back!

    Lovely location
    Quiet site rangers very helpful and friendly . Everything kept clean . Showers would be nice . Easy paddle in canoe to the swan pub one of the best . Paddle at sunset and sunrise beautiful and enchanting in the mist . Lovely walks with the dog and a coffee by the lake . Easy mooring for boats to catch up with friends and family . Half the pitches on level ground and half unlevel . Pitches chosen by the team so unable to choose. Marked out by numbers on posts unlike a few years ago . Excellent parking space so no need to walk through the forest now with equipment .good communication with booking team . Will return happily one day .

    Would go back
    It was a lovely place to stay, staff were helpful and friendly. A short walk to local pub for lunch was lovely, but we were pitched with our friends on a wasps nest and we had small children with us. This was delt with but not until after we had pitched our tents up.

    Another lovely stay
    We went camping as 3 friends and a dog. We've stayed here before and will do so again next year. The site is basic which suits us fine. Nb. No showers! I saw the ranger picking over the grass meticulously litter picking on the sunday. The field views and access to the broad is fantastic, unfortunately we didn't make much use of the broad this year as it was a very rainy weekend. Instead we relaxed in our tents and had a very enjoyable afternoon at the fur and feathers with a meal and a few games of cards. There were not many others camping due to the weather, everyone was friendly and peaceful. Cheerful despite the rain! On a Friday and Saturday night we heard music from the party boat that came into the broad (Friday-very lid,stayed about 30mins returned about 930 or 10pm) and there was a party going on somewhere on the Saturday, probably on a different broad. The latter was very distant. There are some new play equipment just behind the site which were going down well with those visitors with kids. We loved the idea of the stargazing platform and will try to go back on a dry night before the summer is over!

    The perfect Norfolk mini break, and no wet tent to pack up!
    Booked a last minute trip with my 9 yr old; we live in Norfolk and have admired the Salhouse campsite for a while. Perfect for paddleboarding, we stayed in the basic but very warm solo wooden pod, which was miraculously / blissfully free of mosquitoes! Enjoyed a 20min stroll for dinner to the Fur and Feathers Inn, had great coffee in the morning from the Hungry Otter, and were very impressed by the immaculate portaloos AND composting toilets! Best part - we didn't have a wet tent to pack up in the morning! Thank you Rangers for keeping the site so immaculate. PS if you're driving, you don't need to pay for the main carpark, ring the Ranger for directions to the campsite carpark if they don't come with your booking info.

    Great Location
    The campsite is an excellent location particularly if you need access to the water for a canoe or kayak . Facilities are basic with toilets and a water tap. No showers . Three pubs within walking distance or a car ride that are all ok . It is very peaceful with a small hut selling coffee and cakes and savories and rolls for lunch and breakfast in next field . The sky at night is amazing when clear with lots of stars visible and access to an app which explains what you can see.

    Seamaster Club Weekend
    We reserved moorings for our club members in advance. We paid the balance a week before our stay. Arrived as 12 noon. The ranger was prompt in welcoming us. Easy relaxed atmosphere. One couple camped and said how easy their experience had been too. Coming back next year for definite.

The best location, plenty to do on the the Salhouse broad and the surrounding villages all in walkable distances. The Campsite was perfect for us, plenty of space and greenery with lovely views.
The ranger was great bringing us wood and a firepit (This can be purchased for £8) on our late arrival.
The one thing that would have made this Campsite better for us would have been some shower facilities, due to this, 2 nights was my maximum stay.

The views were amazing and plenty of room to moor . However we paid £12 to moor for the night only to discover there was absolutely no TV reception at all !
Whilst we don’t watch a lot of tv I think this should have been made clear on the billboards and when you pick your boat up. We had a relatively modern boat but had no signal at all- only place on the Broads that we moored where the signal was non existent and the phone was hit and miss too!

What a fantastic place - gorgeous walk with the dogs, leading onto a beach area with direct access to the water and as we walked further, we found a play area, cafe and a stargazing point !

Salhouse offers the perfect camping spot for a canoe based camping trip.. The rangers couldn't have been more helpful and friendly throughout our stay and helped us feel very welcome as guests on site.
