  • Pitches and main facilities all wheelchair accessible
  • Half an hour's drive from the beaches of the Norfolk coast
The kilns may be old but the facilities – them’s all set for the 21st century. In fact, The Old Brick Kilns has got things so well sorted it’s even won awards for its offerings. All your everyday needs have been considered by the thoughtful folk at this peaceful rural site: there's a launderette that takes card payments, a tourist info point stacked with handy pointers and first-rate washrooms with underfloor heating. The shop’s shelves are filled with various essentials and treats, and you can call in a day ahead to order warm bread and fresh croissants for a leisurely breakfast. If you’re here at the right time, site staff can sort your evening drinks too: the bar is open on certain nights, with ales and ciders up for grabs. Should you choose to lounge about on site for a bit (as indeed you should…) there are wildflower meadows to skip through and a fishing pond that you’re welcome to dangle your rod into for a small charge. A playground, table tennis and games room are all on hand for the entertainment of small people. This nifty Norfolk location, 15 minutes from Fakenham, has you well placed for all sorts of outings too – beaches, nature reserves and stately homes are all within a half-hour drive. Guests travelling with wheelchairs or buggies will be chuffed to note that this is a pleasingly accessible site, with plenty of ramps and firm pathways to aid manoeuvres around the place.

Electric gravel touring pitch (pull-thru)

Liked: It was a lovely quiet location , well kept grounds and friendly staff

Disliked: the showers were nice but you struggled to keep your clothes dry as the wooden division is not adequate to stop the water splashing them.

Electric gravel touring pitch (pull-thru)

Liked: All clean and tidy, probably nicest shower block / toilets we have had on a touring pitch. Lovely powerful hot showers.

Disliked: The long narrow lane to get to the site. Would have been nice and happy to pay extra to have option to leave the caravan packed and parked up for a few hours on departure day to go off for a few hours but told not possible.

Electric hardstanding touring pitch (adults only)

Liked: Received Avery friendly and thoughtful welcome. As it was so wet, different pitches were recommended to me and I was able to choose where I wanted to be. There is a lot of. Space between pitches and they had hard standing, drive on pitches, which is why I chose them. (Didn't want to be stuck in the mud!) The toilets were just amazing. Immaculate, new, music playing, warm. I've never seen anything like them on a campsite. The location is set back from any roads. It is so quiet, it's perfect. You can just hear the birds singing. It's also protected from winds which is great.

Disliked: Nothing except the single lane that needs to be driven down to the site. I had a new campervan and wasn't too confident I would be able to get out of trouble if it came to it, so that was my issue and the lane is only short. Maybe it needs a wider passing place/ more passing places.

Local attractions

The good folk of Norfolk know a thing or two about gorgeous coastlines, so it’s highly recommended that you bag a bit of beach time while you’re here: the great sandy swathes at Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham are both about half an hour away by car. With coast comes wildlife, and the places to find creatures around here are the RSPB reserve at Titchwell Marsh (35 minutes’ drive) and the boat trips that leave Morston Quay (20 minutes) to see England’s biggest seal colony, which hangs out on or around Blakeney Point. It’s not all about the coast, however – inland’s got plenty of treats to offer too: give the Queen a wave at Sandringham (half an hour’s drive), wander through 100 acres of fragrant lavender fields in Heacham (35 minutes) and sniff out some history at medieval Walsingham (15 minutes) or the stately homes Blickling Estate and Houghton Hall (both 25 minutes).
