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.

  • Liked: 

    The spaces that we had in the adult section were amazing as there was alot of room between pitches.

    Disliked: 

    The narrow lane that runs up to the site as it is very narrow. We arrived early as we traveled overnight and caused issues as there were no pacing places along the way. It would be good if it was stated on the website and also when booking g not to arrive early.

    Stayed on adults only fully serviced pitch. Lovely site, we have stayed here before. Friendly staff, very clean facilities. Due to COVID restrictions it was two only in the toilets/showers but there weren’t any queues and it seems most people were using their own showers. Good site for accessibility to the beach and other towns. Only 20 mins to Wells/Holkham and not much further for other seaside towns. Didn’t have food this time from the restaurant but last time was good and they are doing take outs at weekends. Only downside was the rain! Very well maintained site.

    Friendly hosts, clean well maintained facilities. Lovely bar but didn't try restaurant this trip. Peaceful and quiet surroundings, with large pitches, and restful scenery.

    Disliked: 

    Terrible mobile coverage where we were pitched, can't speak for rest of the park. TV reception, coaxial cable need. But it is rural Norfolk and a break from technology isn't a bad thing

  • Electric gravel touring pitch (drive through)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The fact that all pitches were hard standing which was a godsend as all the recent rain had made the grassed areas too soft.
    The site was ideally suited for the event we were attending.

    Disliked: 

    Didn't fancy the fact that the site warned about the very narrow approach road, luckily we did not encounter other vehicles whilst having the van on. We did meet other vehicles most times we used the road solo.

Directions

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 (8.0 kilometres)
  • Mannington Gardens (13.8 kilometres)
  • Holkham Hall (15.5 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Blakeney National Nature Reserve (10.9 kilometres)
  • Sheringham Park (15.6 kilometres)
