Family Camping in Norfolk

Norfolk is a hugely popular camping destination for families. And we should know. In recent years we've toured all over the county with our own tiny tots and have a number of best-selling family-friendly guidebooks to show for it. Whether it's the beaches, the child-friendly pubs or the quiet country roads for cycling, our kids have always given camping in Norfolk two thumbs up and our most recent edition of Cool Camping: Kids featured a number of excellent campsites in the county. Many families camping here have travelled from the south east and the counties around London. Usually you'll find that, before you've even finished pitching the tent, your children have befriended half the campsite. And that's one of the great things about family camping in a place thats popular with other families. Before you know it your children will have made new friends for life and time on the campsite will be spend running wild, playing hide-and-seek and kicking about a football on sunny summer evenings. The only tough part? Convincing them to go home again at the end of the holiday.

Tent Camping in Norfolk

You can't beat pitching a tent in Norfolk. Long before the word 'glamping' had even been invented, tent campers had been enjoying the Norfolk coast and today the number of traditional, independent, tent-friendly campsite is as strong as ever. This ranges from pop-up campsites that are only around in the summer months, to more established farm campsites and countryside sites with full facilities and more. Here at Cool Camping, we always try to focus on the very best campsites and avoid larger, holiday park-style locations and in Norfolk there are ample options for tent campers looking for a smaller, quieter place to pitch.

Camping on the North Norfolk Coast

One of the most popular spots to go camping is the North Norfolk Coast. Stretching from Cromer in the south east to Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the West, the North Norfolk coast is one of the UK's most diverse areas of seafront. The vast sandy beaches of Cromer, Holkham, Brancaster and Holme converge with great expanses of salt marsh and dunes, backed by mixed woodland and some of the most fertile farmland in East Anglia, along with great country estates, including the Queen's very own at Sandringham. Among it all is a peppering of quaint seaside villages and harbour towns – Wells-next-the-Sea, Brancaster Staithe, Blackney, Morston, Burnham Ovary Staithe. So whether its crabbing of a quay, catching a ferry out to see the seals or building giant sand castles, this coastal wonderland offers plenty to entertain.

Camping in the Norfolk Broads

If your not a coastal camper then no doubt it's the Broads National Park that will be catching your eye in Norfolk. This vast area, formerly mined for its peat, has over 120 miles of navigable waterways, with seven different rivers and over 60 different broads. In amongst the watery wonderland, flat, lush meadows offer the perfect base for campsites and there's a whole host of excellent places on offer. Many campsites in the Norfolk Broads offer canoes or kayaks to hire, while a number of boat rental locations across the Broads National Park allow you to hire small motorboats and take to the waterways with ease. If you're not travelling by boat, bring bikes to make the most of the flat landscape and large number of car-free routes.
