The Best Campsites in Norfolk to Visit This Summer

The Best Campsites in Norfolk to Visit This Summer

Norfolk is home to pretty much everything you could desire from a summer holiday.

There’s the glorious beaches and coastline, beautiful canals, woodland and plenty of quaint little villages. A great way to explore the region, from sticking in one spot or travelling around, is by camping. Whether you’ve just bought a new tent or done up your campervan with parts from, these top campsites in Norfolk are great for those who live locally or are travelling from further afield, whatever your preferred method of camping.

Kelling Heath, Weybourne

Surrounded by miles of woodland with plenty of exciting trails running through them, Kelling Heath is wonderfully located. It’s an excellent family campsite that includes all the facilities you could desire for a varied, active and entertaining camping holiday. There’s an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, onsite bars and restaurants, tennis courts, bike hire, archery and kids’ programmes. The North Norfolk steam railway passes through with a stop at Kelling Heath if you fancy heading out to Amazona Zoo or anywhere else further afield.

Deepdale Farm, Burnham

An eco-site designed with having a minimal impact on the environment, Deepdale Farm has plenty of pitches for tents and small campervans. Plus, there are options to hire a tepee or shepherd’s hut if that’s more your style. Located on the North Norfolk coastline, you’re never too far from one of the various beaches or nature reserves. Free Wi-Fi, charging points and facilities such as showers and laundry are all powered by renewable energy, ideal for the greenest of campers.

Canal Camping, Dilham

You can’t visit Norfolk and not explore the canals that run through our county. If a barge holiday isn’t for you then consider canal camping in Dilham. This is a traditional and incredibly basic campsite, just a large grassy meadow with a shower and toilet cabin and a few drinking taps dotted around. But it’s right by the canal side, so you can walk along in either direction or take a barge trip if you fancy. There are no specific pitches and camp fires are allowed, offering as close an experience to wild camping in Norfolk as you can get.

Birchway Farm, Mundham

For a retro experience, the tin can camping at Birchway Farm is perfect. Made up of 1950s’ Airstream Bubble trailers, these have all been well looked after, with the metal gleaming in the sunlight. Inside each one is full of luxury retro interiors, with an authentic Americana feel. There are only three trailers in the campsite and each sleeps two, so it’s worth considering if you want a highly private or secluded holiday.

High Sand Creek, Stiffkey

High Sand Creek is surrounded by salt marshes, providing a spectacular morning view. It’s a wild and traditional campsite with no electricity points (though there are showers, toilets and washing up facilities). For families there’s an area reserved for ball games, while a nearby bridge is great for crabbing, with balls, nets and more available to borrow from the site.

There are many more excellent campsites in Norfolk but these are some of the best and varied ones across the county.
