The Old Brick Kilns: Adults only area

General

  • Award-winning, peaceful rural site 15 minutes from Fakenham
  • Pitches and main facilities all wheelchair accessible
  • Half an hour's drive from the beaches of the Norfolk coast

The kilns may be old but the facilities – them’s all set for the 21st century. In fact, The Old Brick Kilns has got things so well sorted it’s even won awards for its offerings.

All your everyday needs have been considered by the thoughtful folk at this peaceful rural site: there's a token-operated launderette, a tourist info point stacked with handy pointers and a strong wifi signal across the park (hurrah – no moaning teens). The shop’s shelves are filled with various essentials and treats, and you can call in a day ahead to order a paper and fresh croissants for a leisurely breakfast.

If you’re here at the right time, site staff can sort your evening meals too: the bar-restaurant is usually open four nights a week in the main season, serving up fresh grilled fish and other local goodies (including ales and ciders) alongside stonebaked pizzas to take out.

Should you choose to loaf about on site for a bit (as indeed you should…) there are wildflower meadows to skip through and a fishing pond that you’re welcome to dangle your rod into for a small charge. A playground, table tennis, games room and library are all on hand for the entertainment of small people.

This nifty Norfolk location, 15 minutes from Fakenham, has you well placed for all sorts of outings too – beaches, nature reserves and stately homes are all within a half-hour drive.

Guests travelling with wheelchairs or buggies will be chuffed to note that this is a pleasingly accessible site, with plenty of ramps and firm pathways to aid manoeuvres around the place.

Well maintained caravan and camping site in a quiet location09/29/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Electric gravel touring pitch (pull-thru)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The well spaced hardstanding pitches
    The toilet block was nicely decorated and had been cleaned to a high standard
    The surroundings was tranquil and quiet at night you could hear the owls in the trees but after 10 pm the site seemed very quiet with very little traffic moving about
    We liked Barneys restaurant and bar as it enabled us to bring the dog inside or sit at the picnic tables outside, the menu was varied and food good
    The shop sold the basic necessities and the staff were friendly and helpful

    Disliked: 

    The water in the basins in toilet block was slow to drain away
    The floors to showers and the changing area in cubicle were always wet either due to the last person using shower or spread of water throughout the cubicle not draining away fast enough
    The mop bucket water needed to be changed frequently
    Wi Fi poor and expensive appears to be for 2 hours or daily charge we had to organise and pay online independently and not enough information was given about it at time of arrival so could not use internet or have TV did not contact provider when could not access tv programs as we did not have information until next day after asking at reception

Local attractions

The good folk of Norfolk know a thing or two about gorgeous coastlines, so it’s highly recommended that you bag a bit of beach time while you’re here: the great sandy swathes at Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham are both about half an hour away by car.

With coast comes wildlife, and the places to find creatures around here are the RSPB reserve at Titchwell Marsh (35 minutes’ drive) and the boat trips that leave Morston Quay (20 minutes) to see England’s biggest seal colony, which hangs out on or around Blakeney Point.

It’s not all about the coast, however – inland’s got plenty of treats to offer too: give the Queen a wave at Sandringham (half an hour’s drive), wander through 100 acres of fragrant lavender fields in Heacham (35 minutes) and sniff out some history at medieval Walsingham (15 minutes) or the stately homes Blickling Estate and Houghton Hall (both 25 minutes).

Must see

  • Shrine of our Lady of Walsingham (5.0 miles)
  • Mannington Gardens (8.6 miles)
  • Holkham Hall (9.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Blakeney National Nature Reserve (6.8 miles)
  • Sheringham Park (9.7 miles)
