UK England East Anglia Norfolk Blakeney Scaldbeck Cottage

  • Sleeps 12 (max 12 adults, 11 children)

The Owner Says

Just beyond a traditional Norfolk cottage and its garden, under trees and past upturned boats, lies a tiny field for only 12 campers. The shower and toilet room is attached to the back of the flint abode, where a couple of B&B rooms are also available. The cost is £6 per person (age 3+) per night. We ask for payment in advance via BACS or debit/credit card. We will refund up to 4 weeks prior to the first night of your booking for up to 6 people. For larger groups we require 8 weeks notice for cancellation refunds.

About Scaldbeck Cottage

Suitable For

Tents, dogs – yes. Campervans, caravans – no.


The 47-mile-long Norfolk Coast Path goes right past the campsite and takes in some of the best bits of the county’s coastline, from salt marshes and mudflats to cliffs. Head to Morston Quay (¼ mile) for seal-watching boat trips with Bean’s Boats (01263 740038) or Temple Boats (01263 740791) which take you out to Blakeney Point. The campsite owners are happy to book it for you. There is also a sailing school (01263 740704) at Morston Quay with various courses for children and adults.

Food & Drink

Grab a light bite at the Wiveton Hall Café (01263 740515), famous for its appearance on the BBC cult reality show Normal For Norfolk – the food is excellent and you’ll also be contributing to keeping the stately pile alive. For a good pub, try the Anchor Inn (01263 741392), a short walk away in Morston along the coastal path – excellent food (book ahead). The Wiveton Bell (01263 740101), a couple of miles inland on the other side of Blakeney, also serves great food and has a lovely garden, while The Langham Bluebell is a family-friendly pub and eatery with a pizza oven in the garden.


Scaldbeck Cottage is located at Scaldbeck Cottage, Stiffkey Road, Morston, Holt, Norfolk NR25 7BJ

Getting There

The campsite is just off the A149 coast road just west of Morston. Look for signs to the Bluejacket Workshop and small handmade signs at the site entrance. Take a train to Sheringham the nearest train station (11 miles away) and then hop on the Coasthopper bus, which stops right outside the site.
