General

  • Peaceful, pop-up meadow site in North Norfolk countryside near Holt
  • A 15-minute drive to Cromer beach; 20 minutes to Blickling Estate
  • Powered by solar energy; shower and loo block; pubs and shops nearby

A pop-up campsite run by Becky and David on part of their family’s farm, Apple Tree Farm Campsite is situated between Holt and Sheringham in lovely North Norfolk countryside.

With a peaceful setting among arable fields, the camping pitches have gorgeous views and dark skies, so you might well get a chance to spot the Milky Way glittering above on clear nights.

There are lots of cycle routes and footpaths accessible from the farm, and as the beach is probably top of the kids’ to-do list, a short car journey sees you at the east-coast seaside towns of Sheringham (10 minutes’ drive) and Cromer (15 minutes).

On site, you are free to have a campfire or barbecue to cosy up around, but they must be off the ground to avoid damaging the grass. There are plenty of local pubs if you’re having a break from cooking, and you can pick up supplies in Holt (10 minutes), where there are also a raft of takeaways.

The site is powered by energy generated from the owners’ solar farm, and amenities include well-equipped bathrooms with flushing loos and hot showers, a cold-water sink for washing up and access to a phone-charging station if you need to stay in touch with home.

Lovely, laid-back rural campsite22/09/2021

    This campsite was one of the most peaceful places I stayed during a two week holiday. A lovely rural setting and plenty of space in the field. The facilities were immaculate, the owners were friendly and helpful, and it was great to have the option of a firepit. Pretty much my perfect campsite.

    Excellent site for camping. Plenty of space, very quiet and away from main road.

    The owners were very helpful and welcoming, giving advice on local amenities are and where to go.

    There are firepits that are free to use.

    Very nice and modern toilet / shower block.

    Nice touches like home grown tomatoes / chillies left out for campers to use. We really enjoyed our stay and our thanks to the owners for having us.

    This is a really nice site for camping. Quiet and away from main roads. Plenty of space, very well tended grass, soft ground and not too stony, very level with no major holes / divets under pitches. The owners are really lovely people, was a very nice welcome and they were very helpful, giving me advice on where local amenities are and where to go. There are firepits that are free to use, with free kindling, and contactless payment if you want logs (more than enough to keep you going all weekend in one bag). Very nice toilet / shower block - not the usual poorly equipped outbuilding - with high end fittings / fixtures and well thought out design. Nice touches like home grown tomatoes / chillies left out for campers to use. There are two pubs within strolling distance - I picked the Red Hart which had good pub grub and nice local ales, and is about ~25 minutes walk through the little lanes, do bring a torch for the way back! I really enjoyed my stay and my thanks to the owners for having me.

    The site was lovely and open, the on-site services were so nice and clean. David and Becky are such nice people and are extremely welcoming.

    The fire pits are brilliant and they have got a shed that has supplies available, they even set up a solar powered card reader to allow you to purchase supplies.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Sheringham (10 minutes’ drive) may well be top of the list in the beach stakes, with plenty of good old-fashioned bucket-and-spade fun to be had with the kids. Or how about eating fish and chips on the traditional pier at Cromer (15 minutes) or chancing your hand in the amusement arcades that dot the town’s prom?

Tread in the ill-fated footsteps of Anne Boleyn at National Trust-owned Blickling Estate (20 minutes), the magnificent estate where she was born in 1501, and if you want to introduce the kids to some living history, pick up a leaflet from the tourist information office in Holt (10 minutes) and follow the Owl Trail around the Georgian town.

You can find a myriad of footpaths and cycle trails around the area, from family beachside tramps among dunes to the rather-more-challenging, off-road Peddars Way trail, with bumpy tracks and some steep climbs.

Must see

  • Felbrigg Hall, Garden and Park (3.6 miles)
  • Mannington Gardens (4.3 miles)
  • Blickling Hall, Gardens and Park (6.9 miles)
