Magpie Meadow: woodland pitches

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, a low-impact shower, 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

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

Discount cards and gift vouchers cannot be applied to bookings made via Pitchup.com.

Minimum spacing of 5 metres between pitches.

At least one of the party members must be aged 21 or over.

    Really loved this campsite. Very relaxing with really wide pitches so you don't feel stacked on top of others. The toilets, shower and washing up area was clean and we loved the hut where you can buy or borrow bits and bobs. Only 10 min drive to Mundesley Beach - which was fantastic. We will be back!!!

    Pretty much everything. Huge pitches with space in between everyone so you're not crammed in at all. Clean facilities with a communal washing up area which is always helpful. Very dog friendly and there's a footpath very close which leads to fields you can walk around. Great location close to many different beaches most of which you can take dogs to even during peak season and supermarkets within a 5 min drive. Owners are very friendly and always around if you need anything or want some advice on best places to visit. Definitely recommend.

    We are basic campers with little equipment, we don't even have a camping stove and kettle. You will need something to heat water to wash.

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.
