Located in Dilham, Norfolk, our tucked away campsite is nestled among the water, the reeds and the beautiful skies. Canal Camping caters for those that are looking for a relaxing, natural adventure, with the added of bonus of being able to walk out of your tent, launch your canoe not far away and drift along one of the country’s most unique canals.
Canal Camping has three all singing, all dancing 6 metre Bell Tents, that sleep up to four people in each tent. Situated in a sprawling meadow of six acres, running along the peaceful banks of the Old Dilham Canal. Here you will find plenty of room for the kids to run free, as well as having canoes available to hire and launch straight from the campsite, so you can have your very own Wind in the Willows adventure on this truly magical stretch of the Norfolk Broads.
Canal Camping is made up of little more than a grassy meadow, with a shower and toilet cabin at one end, washing-up space and drinking water taps dotted about, this simple tent-only campsite offers camping on a casual scale. There are no designated pitches – simply find a nice spot that suits – and campfires are very much permitted, with the scent of wood smoke in the air and the sound of crackling logs backtracking the birds.
After a long day exploring this beautiful part of Norfolk, come back to your camp for hot showers, clear skies for star-gazing, open campfires for toasting marshmallows, and fantastic pubs within walking distance.
What more could you ask for!?
If you’re new to bell tent camping, the benefits are not just in size and comfy beds. Sleeping under cotton offers a magical and far more pleasant nights sleep, than your everyday polyester tent. With the canvas tent there is no waking up feeling unrested and sweaty and there is no condensation!! The breathable nature of cotton canvas, along with four big vents in the peak of the bell, means you are sleeping in fresh air circulating around you all night, giving you a healthy and good nights sleep
