The Old Brick Kilns: Small fishing lake on site

General

  • Award-winning, peaceful rural site 15 minutes from Fakenham
  • 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.

    As our first night being new caravan owners we were thrilled to be staying at the old brick kilns.
    The lovely spacious sites, the lovey staff and all the wild nature around us.
    Our girls had a great time and even the dogs too!
    We had a lovey little owl in the tree above us and it was so amazing to hear.
    We loved it so much that we’re planning to come back next weekend!

    There was nothing negative about this campsite!

    Very quiet setting with a spacious layout and lots of local walls around. The staff are lovely and the shop is well stocked. And you can order fresh bread for the mornings. The main toilets are very clean and modern.

    Disliked: 

    Pot holes on the narrow track in. The toilets at the top end of the site were clean enough but there was quite a bit of limestone on taps and showers

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).

Must see

  • Shrine of our Lady of Walsingham (5.0 miles)
  • Mannington Gardens (8.6 miles)
  • Holkham Hall (9.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Blakeney National Nature Reserve (6.8 miles)
  • Sheringham Park (9.7 miles)
