Camping at Three Rivers, Geldeston, Norfolk - 1st June 2019

It's another trip out for the van, together with a new inflatable awning, to Three Rivers campsite, in Geldeston on the Norfolk/Suffolk border. It's an unusual site as it's not heavily managed, only has some 20 pitches (with only three toilets, two of which are in shower rooms, to go around), and it also lets campers have real fires. Above all though it's in a lovely position nestled on a tongue-shaped strip of land that runs out between two tributaries of the River Waveney. It makes much use of this by hiring out canoes and kayaks, which enable a leisurely paddle around to the famous Geldeston Locks pub about a mile away.
