The Old Brick Kilns: Adults only area

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 token-operated launderette, a tourist info point stacked with handy pointers and a strong wifi signal across the park (hurrah – no moaning teens). The shop’s shelves are filled with various essentials and treats, and you can call in a day ahead to order a paper and fresh croissants for a leisurely breakfast.

If you’re here at the right time, site staff can sort your evening meals too: the bar-restaurant is usually open four nights a week in the main season, serving up fresh grilled fish and other local goodies (including ales and ciders) alongside stonebaked pizzas to take out.

Should you choose to loaf 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, games room and library 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.

    If you pitch a tent up you are treated like scumbags by the caravan owners,they ignore you, they are very rude and stuck up! The restaurant is ridiculously priced for cafe style food,the same bottle of wine in the reception shop thats £7 turns into £20 in bar, i wouldn't advise anybody who uses a tent to go here ,the wifi they sell to you doesn't work so dont bother buying it.so disappointed as this was some rest bite from our terminaly ill brother....my advice is go to a tent only site as this place makes you feel like a scumbag.

From the manager...

We're very sorry that things didn't work out during your stay but glad that you felt that we tried to help. Thank you for your kind feedback regarding our clean facilities.

    The Old Brick Kilns is a fantastic campsite. It is very friendly and has excellent facilities on site. The layout is brilliant - setting the pitches out in small camping areas makes the site feel small and safe. The takeaway and restaurant on site is fantastic - great quality home cooked food at a reasonable price. Enough facilities for the kids to enjoy and plenty of open space. We will be back!

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)
