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.

This park has no on-site shower facilities.

thank you for you review. we are very sorry about other campers not using the toilets provided and if this was brought to our attention we would of dealt with it with great concern as this is not tolerated in any way and goes against our terms and conditions of our campers using the site and if this had continued we would have asked the campers to leave !

    Maggie Meadows has a great setup, with everything that you need. We had a woodland pitch with electric hookup. Which comes with a small wooded area with picnic table, firepit and hook for a solar shower. There are two flushing toilets on site. They have firewood and kindling available. It is a great site that even when full won't feel overcrowded.
    A great location in Norfolk, that is very welcoming and brilliantly run.

    A perfect quiet location for our overnight motorhome stay.

    We were greeted on arrival, we didn't need any facilities as we are well equipped in the motorhome. The pitch was very spacious, more so than other sites being very tight and cramped.

    We had arranged lunch at The Gunton Arms which was a few miles down the road. All in all, very easy to find, great access and a lovely site.

    Thank you, would recommend and use again!!!

    Beautiful site, very well kept!
    The site is set around a lovely field with pitches mowed out, the test of the field is a wild meadow with seats dotted around.
    Kids playing outside without any worries.
    Flushing toilets, and water points, there's half a dozen electric hook ups if you needed, fire pits at every pitch with a fire bucket!
    The owners are super helpful with a little cabin with all sorts of bits in there, fresh eggs, solar showers, and printed maps of the local walks.
    You couldn't ask for anything more the site is fantastic!

    Nice peaceful, friendly, easy going site. Plenty of space to stretch out. We only stayed for one night, but would definitely go back. It's a nice flat field, we have hydraulic levellers, but I think we coud've easily managed without that. It was an easy off road walk into town where everyone we met were friendly. We didn't use the facilities as we were in a motorhome and have everything on board. The little fire pits and buckets for rubbish are a nice touch and encourage recyling!

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.
