General

  • Lovely setting with space to play, great base to explore Norfolk

Standing in the heart of Norfolk's undulating fields, Bircham Windmill Caravan and Campsite is a quiet site, right next to the Windmill tourist attraction. It is a good base for walking and cycling, with the nearest beach only 5 miles away.

The camping field is set between arable farmland, with very little passing traffic; you can often hear barn owls, little owls, pheasants and partridge, sparrow and many other birds and wildlife. There are also the owners' own sheep, goat, pony and donkey, making this park an ideal destination for a break away with your children.

Guests have free access to the tearooms and to the garden area, perfect for relaxing whilst the kids play in the games room or in the play area.

On site, you will also find a gift shop and a bakery, where kids can try their baking skills in the Children's Baking Corner (a small charge applies).

    Nice quiet location apart from the cockerel waking us up but that was no real problem. The windmill is a very nice attraction with a very pleasant cafe and bakery attached. It is their first year of operation and the the facilities are good but i was told that they are adding extra features over the winter. There was only 4 pitches with hook up and nowhere to empty the grey waste. There was one toilet and shower which were perfectly adequate.

Thank you for your review, we now have 8 hook ups and our new shower block will be ready by witsun. We do hope you will come and see us again soon.
