Magpie Meadow: Well-kept grounds in the East Anglian countryside

General

  • Environmentally aware site set over six acres of Norfolk countryside
  • Five minutes' drive from North Walsham; 15 mins from Mundesley beach
  • Firewood available; 1.5 miles to Weavers' Way trail and rail station

Looking for hols that'll make you feel as free as a bird? Swoop down for a stay at Magpie Meadow, a back to basics Norfolk site with fab mega-sized pitches and far-reaching rural views. The site is also conveniently located 15 minutes’ drive from top coastal spots like Mundesley and Bacton beach.

You can expect a warm welcome and relaxed vibe here – this site bills itself as 'family-friendly, dog-friendly, cat-friendly… and generally friendly'. It's also an eco-friendly place within easy reach of public transport options: those skipping the car can arrive via North Walsham railway station (20 minutes' walk), then get out and about on miles of bike-friendly trails (including the nearby Quiet Lanes Network and car-free Weavers' Way).

This community-run spot is run on the basis that 'nature does it best'; as such, the site is proud that it's totally free of tarmac tracks and manicured hedges. Parts of the grounds are also gradually being rewilded with native flowers and trees, and limits on guest numbers mean that the whole middle of the meadow is always left as clear as it looks in the photos.

In terms of facilities, Magpie Meadow is low on frills, with just two flushing loos, drinking water and a washing-up point provided; you're welcome to bring your own toilet with you. Barbecues are allowed here (as long as they're at least 60cm/two feet off the ground and burning charcoal only) and bundles of sustainably sourced logs are available to buy on site (although please note campfires may be banned during particularly hot and dry weather).

Please note

Minimum spacing of 5 metres between pitches.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Great site, clean friendly and peaceful21/09/2021

  • Woodland electric optional grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Large flat grassy pitches cut out of a meadow. The pitch came with a large wooden picnic table and benches and a fire pit that was effective. Wild camping is very different to clamping, there are a couple of toilets and a washing up area which are all scrupulously clean and a shower stall if you have a solar shower. The owners could not be more friendly and helpful.
    A gem of a site in the Norfolk countryside,we can't wait to return.

    Disliked: 

    There is nothing to dislike if you want a peaceful relaxing time in the countryside.

Brilliant wild(ish) clean and pretty campsite with quiet festival vibe08/09/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomCharlotte D.Confirmed

  • Meadow non-electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We love the setting, it's so spacious. Some great improvements this year. The flushing toilet cabins, bin area and info hut with thoughtful items to buy like eggs, marshmallows, solar shower bags. The shower cabin is great too. We didn't use it as it was too cold for our solar shower bags to heat, but I'm sure it would be brilliant when the weather allows. The meadow is beautifully mown with paths through it and creative spaces to enjoy. Location is great if you accept you are a few miles from the coast. Access to the fancy Waitrose round the corner reminded you that you're on the outskirts of a town, but within the space and tranquility of the meadow, the location strikes a happy balance between wild(ish) camping and useful amenities within easy distance. We cycled into town easily and enjoyed the surrounding lanes.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing. For a basic camp site it has bells and whistles to delight.

    Big pitches with lots of space. Like the fact large parts of the field are not mowed. Kids loved the space and games in the middle of the field.

    Disliked: 

    You need a solar shower to use the shower shed (available to buy on site). This was not explained in the description. Next time we'll be better prepared.

  • Liked: 

    Loved the woodland pitch and fire pit, wood only £5 a basket lasted two evenings and fire lighters are available for £2.50 if you don’t have any. Toilets are really clean, the fairy lights are a nice touch and you get a little tub to help you carry your recycling over to the glass, card, plastic and metal bins. The owners are super friendly and have a very cute dog, we really enjoyed talking to them and it made our stay even more pleasant. Pitches are well spaced and we really liked the wild long grass, you also get a great view of the stars at night! We didn’t travel from very far away but we would definitely stay again!

Local attractions

Touring the Norfolk countryside on foot is a top-notch pursuit, whether that involves taking a constitutional on the peaceful country lanes around the site or day-long treks along the length and breadth of the car-free Weavers’ Way (five minutes' drive). Seaside strolls can also be arranged if you settle down here; the stretch of coast between Bacton and Mundesley is particularly pleasant (both 20 minutes).

Boating in the Broads is another brill bet, especially if you're curious about the area's birdlife. Wroxham (20 minutes) has several local businesses that hire out vessels for the day, but professionally organised cruises are also on offer if your rowing skills leave something to be desired. Wroxham Barns (15 minutes) is also worth dropping by – this one-stop attraction is home to a shopping village, kids’ play farm and several food outlets.

Newcomers curious about the area's history can head down to Felbrigg Hall (15 minutes), a rather regal National Trust estate. The community-run Museum of the Broads (15 minutes), meanwhile, houses well-preserved examples of the craft that cruised these waters in days gone by.
