General

  • Unique coastal park with safari tents in an old Norfolk brickyard
  • A five-minute drive to Holkham Nature Reserve and 10 to Holkham Hall
  • Cob, pizza oven and bar; stargazing and birdwatching on site

Proudly sporting the accolade of being named as the sixth-best wild campsite in the UK by The Daily Telegraph and a similar nod from The Wild Guide, The Lost Norfolk Brickyard is part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest in the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With enough room to relax and get close to nature in the mixture of woods and open space, it’s a fine choice for folk who want plenty of privacy and seclusion.

As well as scenic surroundings, the Peterstone park also has excellent facilities: guests can cook at the cob and pizza oven, which serve as a focal point for social times next to the old Norfolk barn, or unwind with a drink at the bar without any worries about driving home.

Outdoors, you might like to sit and birdwatch or stargaze – several large birds of prey (red kites, buzzards, marsh harriers and the like) often fly overhead and the area’s recognised by The Royal Astronomical Society as having one of the lowest light pollution levels in the UK.

If you feel like getting further out into the countryside, it's a short cycle ride to Holkham beach on a scenic off-road trip through a nature reserve, and it takes about 15 minutes to reach the 18th-century country house of Holkham Hall. For more culture, the neighbouring town of Wells-next-the-Sea (around a five-minute drive) has an arts centre with exhibitions spaces, a cinema and a theatre.

Back at the park, the well-kept showers and loos are cleaned regularly and each safari tent has its own separate loo and shower with a washing-up station.
