A lovely, well-run and friendly camping site – perfect for exploring the beautiful North Norfolk Coast

Come mid-September, most people of sound mind put any thoughts of camping to rest. It’s not just because the days start to turn colder but because there aren’t that many campsites that stay open once the leaves begin to curl and drop. Nudging the north Norfolk coastline, Deepdale Farm in Burnham Deepdale is a rare exception.

Some believe there is no better time to visit Norfolk than autumn – the hedgerows are pregnant with blackberries and the county is a vision of russet-coloured forests and blush-coloured clouds. And with original owner Jason Borthwick now back in charge of the site, Deepdale's 80 pitches are once again the ideal base for exploring the delights of Norfolk whatever the season.

There’s often an enthusiastic programme of events at the farm, with everything from organised stargazing to cookery classes with local produce. But in any case there are diversions a-plenty in and around Burnham Deepdale. Kick-start the morning with a coffee at the café next door, and stock up on necessities at the nearby supermarket or on-site camping shop before hiring a bike or getting on your walking boots.You are so near to the coastline here, that an excursion to the water’s edge is a must. Their insistence on post-10pm ‘quiet time’ means that loud and drunken tomfoolery is not tolerated – a good thing if you want to get out and about early.



The facilities are excellent, with great showers and toilets, washing up areas, water points around the site, chemical toilet disposal, and a visitor information centre, with lots of local information about the area. We are Gold Green Tourism Business scheme certified, so environment is hugely important to us.  Our team are passionate about the area, and about helping customers find their hygge (their inner happiness) when they come to stay on the site.

Suitable For

Tents, small campervans, dogs – Yes. Caravans, big groups, young groups – No.


The big skies, beautiful coastline, space, calm and the seafood!

Food & Drink

The excellent Deepdale Café next door serves everything from quality English breakfasts to chunky home-made soups (including evening meals in summer). The White Horse (01485 210262) and The Jolly Sailors (01485 210314), both gastropubs, are a short walk up the village, serving great range of food from smoked ribs to wood fired pizzas, and lots of local fish and shellfish, including cockles, mussels and oysters from the ‘beds’ at the bottom of the garden.


All year, including Christmas and New Year.

So Relaxing

Despite C19 we had a great stay here. It was quiet and peaceful with generous pitches on a par with French sites. The restrictions due to Covid were sensible and simple with plenty of antibacterial gel at various locations. The outdoor shower was fantastic, so glad that was maintained ! The woodfired pizzas were a bonus from the van, but left me wondering if the fire is out when they drive off?? Easy access to walks and to RSPB and to Wells.Pity the tides weren't right for canoeing and paddleboard, so they stayed dry. Will definitely return.

Perfect for motorhomers

We stayed at Deepdale for 5 nights in September and loved it. Even with some facilities closed because of COVID it was pretty close to our ideal. The team were safety conscious with plenty of hand sanitisers and social distancing. The site has a lovely vibe, there are great walks nearby, a bus stop right outside, and two decent pubs plus a fish stall within walking distance. No need for a car here, park up and walk everywhere. One of the highlights for us were the thousands of geese flying overhead one evening. We’ll be back.

Despite Covid restrictions!!

Perfect location for our walking needs,friendly helpful staff, best comment I can make is to say that we will be coming back to this site. Keep it up!!

Felt safe and happy

We stayed for a few nights in different campsites in Norfolk. Sadly only one night here at Deepdale. The staff were friendly and helpful. What stood out for us was the coronavirus precautions the site had taken. They were far far in advance of other sites - some we stayed at had taken only scant precautions. At Deepdale we felt safe and secure. They had gone above and beyond to ensure the safety of their visitors, most likely to their financial detriment as well. Well done Deepdale - head and shoulders above the rest. Lovely campsite to boot!

Lovely place to stay!

Me and my sister stayed here for a couple of nights - the staff were really friendly, especially Gaynor, who organised to meet us as when we were delayed and couldn't check in before before 5pm! She was really helpful, and told us about a lovely walk (we went and it was gorgeous, and just across the road!), showed us the facilities and was super lovely! (Thank you very much!) The dormitory we stayed in was very clean, super comfortable, and had everything you need! We are hoping to come again soon, and perhaps camp this time in the summer!! Thank you all very much to the lovely staff!

Extremely well kept and cared for site. Top Marks.

We spent the weekend here as Storm Dennis hit over the Saturday night. Several different types of pitch, we picked the fully serviced pitched. Hard standing with its own drainage water and EHU. The water is an interesting pump from well but works fine and easy to use. Pitches are extremely flat, ours on gravel but the grass pitches are short and hard. Our outfit is a 8.6 tag and we got on with no problems. Toilets and all the facilities are great on this very well kept site. Very friendly and helpful staff. Will be returning.

My idea of the ultimate backpackers hostel

I stayed in February for 3 nights as solo walker. It was an amazing trip with exceptional facilities. The staff were amazing, friendly and informative. I can't wait to go again. Kirk

Great place!

We were really impressed by everything at the site - great facilities, location, views and the people. We are a family of 4 and the site offered us everything we needed to enjoy our holiday. Thank you!

Wow, excellent

I don't want to write a review about this well run camp site, with its excellent shower facilities, friendly staff and great layout so no one fills crowded. Why don't I want to write a review purely for selfish reasons I don't want anyone else to find this brilliant campsite with its fantastic norfolk skies undisturbed by light pollution. The sunsets and moon rising are a photographers dream, the stars the opportunity to see the milky way.

Top class

Great sized pitches, incredibly well maintained and clean site. Never had to queue for a loo or shower despite the site being full. Great location for cycling, walking, pubs and well stocked NISA store next door. Deepdale cafe do a great breakfast. Above all are the staff who went out of their way to help people, a really good team always with a smile and advise and suggestions for walks etc. Had a fabulously active but relaxing five days!

This is our go to site for all year round visits.

Lovely helpful staff, well maintained site, the best showers...never had to queue even at busy times. Looking forward to future visits especially if there is a Hygge in March 2020.

A truly fab campsite

This is a really lovely small, quiet and friendly campsite with a great atmosphere and very friendly and helpful staff. Has everything you need with great showers and a well stocked little supermarket next door and a bus stop just opposite the camp site to take you along the coast .
Aug 7, 2019 by nikky

Felt so very welcome

What a find! We had to make last minute changes and even though Deepdale was pretty much full the staff spent ages finding us a place that was simy perfect. The best showers I've ever seen on a campsite, excellent control and respect about noise, the grounds are beautifully kept. I was going to suggest a few more picnic tables but as we left we saw a delivery of new picnic tables arriving. Stunning location, without doubt we will be returning.

Fantastic campsite

Highly recommend this campsite for your stay in Norfolk. Super friendly and helpful stuff; great location; pretty campsite - which has everything you need!; just an overall fab place

Great campsite in great location

Stayed there with family in our campervans. Jumbo pitches are a very good and sensible size. Services all very accessible and well maintained. The Deepdale Crew are all friendly and helpful. Great walking in the area and we didn't need to use the vans at all, we walked everywhere. Also very helpful to have a good supermarket next door as well as the other craft shops and pop-up shops.

Brilliant venue for camping and hostel stays

We had a room in the hostel and a tent pitch for 2 couples. The location is superb with easy access to the North Norfolk coastal path and 2 great pubs nearby. The crew and the facilities are great. The site is very well organized and has great touches, including the free food shelves, pizza night and free showers. We used the coastliner bus to hop back to the hostel after walking all day and swimming in the sea at Wells. The kitchen facilities in the hostel are fantastic and recycling is well organized. The camping pitches are a good size and there are plenty of toilets. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Great site, great walks, great pubs - all dog friendly!

I took my Dad and my dog away for my Dad's birthday and it was all that I wanted for the weekend - camping, beautiful beaches and great pubs! We had the best time! Fabulous location, great pubs, lovely campsite and most importantly, lovely staff at the campsite. The pizza night was perfect as we arrived late on the Friday night. We are planning to take my Mum next time too as we had to check out the facilities (e.g. toilet/shower blocks) first - they are great big wet-rooms, very spacious and clean. We will absolutely be back, maybe in a larger group! My dog's first trip to the seaside was super special (he's a rescue dog with little worldly knowledge) as he had miles of golden sands to explore on a practically private beach in the windy weather! Thank you for having us Deepdale!

Excellent site with everything you need for relaxing time

Great locations for walks to sea, marshes, birdwatching, watching seals etc. Good food nights on Friday and Saturday. Will return again soon.

Friendly site

28/11/18 Newbies to motor homing we were recommended Deepdale by the RSPB at Titchwell. Arriving late in the afternoon to check availability we were greeted by friendly, helpful staff who gave us useful information on the site, made sure we were okay and said they were happy to help if we needed it. Great views from grass pitch. WiFi available at no extra charge. Shower block was amazing - exceptionally clean, private and spacious. Shops nearby ideal for essentials and non essentials 😀 Will definitely be coming back

Wonderful experience!

We stayed at Deepdale for two nights in August. They were incredibly accomodating. Original we were supposed to be camping but after car problems at the last minute they allowed us to switch over to the dog friendly hostel room. It's definitely the best hostel we've ever staid in. The room we had had its own private door and small courtyard with picnic table and own toilet/shower. We can not fault the shared spaces. The kitchen is huge with lots of amenities, the TV room very comfortable, and the courtyard with BBQ and tables excellent. Not to mention the information centre and incredibly well stocked shop!! We would definitely visit again.

Perfect camping for birding

Spacious pitches, spotlessly clean, very comfortable and very friendly staff. Fantastic shop just around the corner. Nice pubs a little bit further. And all this --- right in the middle of England's best birding area, a short drive from Titchwell and Holkham, not far from Blakeney, Cley, Snettisham - and if you dare, this is the best starting point towards Scolt Head! Just a small piece of Paradise in the form of a campsite...
Sep 11, 2018 by Jarek Francik

friendly welcome and large pitch for tent and car.

Superb campsite in a great setting. If you are a walker and or Birder this is a great place to base yourself to explore the North Norfolk Coast. The 10 pm curfew suits me fine!

Christmas at Deepdale

Friendly welcome, spacious free draining pitch, lovely warm clean washrooms, lots of local information, wonderful walks, regular buses, nearby pubs, huge sky, skeins of geese overhead and sunsets. What’s not to like? OK, it was a bit windy! Well done Deepdale team, you have a great site there.

Tidy Campsite

Friendly welcome, willing to help with any queries if needed but not in your face. Tidy campsite with large pitches, plenty of space for the furry ones to exercise. We were in Beech Dell, large paddock, plenty of room. The field behind looked like it was being developed with hedging & the new shower block. Plenty of tents pitched in this field. Shower block rustic, separate individual showers. Can imagine it's chilly in the winter though, Newer block in other field which was more modern with under floor heating and what looked like a new block being built in the field we were in. Plenty of hot water & no queue however we were the only ones in our field for the first night. Then we were joined by 3 other people. The shower block was clean even though I never actually saw anyone cleaning. The site has a café right next door which we used a couple of times for coffee & lunch, very friendly service & good food. Two pubs within a nice walking distance. The Jolly Sailor which was very dog friendly & family friendly, good pub food. The White Horse was more up market, with views over the sea. We only had drinks here in the evening but it looked very nice. There is a shop in the garage which sold everything you needed, wine & chocolate! The area is great for walking & we did the North Coast Walk to Brancaster & back, which we really loved, spending time on the beach which we felt was one of the best beaches to visit. We really loved this site & feel this is our 'go to site' when we need a weekend away from it all.

Great Autumn Stay

Love this site. Second time I've stayed was earlier this year, autumn. Really nice. Review above is spot on, this part of Norfolk is really nice this time of year and not somewhere you have to go in summer. Some really great walks around the coast, the beaches and the footpaths. Brancaster harbour is lovely and the two pubs up the road – Jolly Sailor and White Horse are both great (we preferred the Jolly overall i think). All the essentials at the campsite. A good spot.

Excellent Location for the Coast

I had a very comfortable night in my tent here. I was driving along the North Norfolk coast looking for a place to camp for the night and this place has everything a weary traveller needs: no fuss staff, decent toilets and showers, shops (Yes, I did take advantage of the Fat Face sale...) and a great location. I set up camp and then cycled down to a glorious beach (around 2 miles) and it was so peaceful. The RSPB Reserve is also just down to the road too. The campsite make a point about the 10pm noise curfew, which I appreciated (I liked that the hair dryers don't work after 10pm!), and the picnic benches provided in the field were useful to set up dinner. I had no one in the pitches either side of me so I felt I had lots of space, however if I had had neighbours I may have felt a bit squeezed (your car shares your pitch with you, you see). Would definately return if in the area.

Burnham Deepdale relaxed break

I have just completed a tour of Norfolk, where I lived until I was 13. I haven't been back there since, now 60. One of the places I stayed was Deepdale Campsite. It was a lovely campsite and the facilities are absolutely fantastic - with one minor hiccup (see below). The site is well situated within walking distance of the coast, a shop, cafe, petrol station and two excellent pubs. Everyone was very friendly and although the site got very busy on the Saturday night, the site coped well. I must say I preferred it when the site was not so busy though!

When the hedges on the Glebe fields are bigger and thicker, it will help shelter the units from the wind!

The hiccup? Well when I came to want to empty my cassette toilet before moving on, I was told there was no where to do this, and there's a big sign in the toilets to prevent you from using the toilet (fair enough). I queried this in the Reception, to be told that they were petitioning to have this facility put in! I would have thought this quite a major thing for a campsite that accepts campervans and small motorhomes as well as tents. 

Other than that though, I did enjoy my stay.

Like the Curate's Egg...

....good in parts.

The site is large but it can get pretty crowded. The pitches can be close together but for us that wasn't too much of an issue. We were there for 5 days in August. The location is very good, close to the coast, local pubs, villages, cafes etc. One problem is the ground is soft for the first two inches and then seems to have a lot of stone after that - make sure you have a good mallet (they sell them) and you have extra pegs as some will be bent for sure.

Most of the staff are pleasant. 

The real downsides on this site are: the toilets and shower units are clean and well maintained but there are nothing like enough for the numbers of people. This often means a 20 mins (or more) queue.  I would say they need about 3 times what they have at present.

There policy on wrong bookings is brutal and while probably legal, is unfriendly at best: we realised we had booked one day too many - told them 3 hours later but the reply was "its in our terms and conditions - no refunds on any circumstances."

Largely good

I stayed 7 nights in early July. Overall: I'd say this site is best-suited to families and casual campers who want easy camping with modern facilities, but not a big commercial holiday park. Probably a bit tame for serious campers or anyone seeking something 'wild'.

On the positive side: the location is great - really easy access to coast footpath and road to coastal towns, it's very near Holkham Hall and other attractions, there are some nice (though expensive) pubs nearby and a small supermarket right next door. The pitches are well-kept, the toilets/showers are modern and clean, it's quiet in the evenings, the views are beautiful and the staff are helpful.

This is personal preference, but while it's quiet and homely the site isn't as 'wild' as I prefer. The top fields especially lack cover, so you feel exposed to the wind. This also means you feel very close to your neighbours and sound travels easily across the whole site. There's a minimum charge of 2 people per pitch in high season, even if you're alone - this seemed a bit much when the site wasn't full. Oh, and expect to queue for showers at peak times.

Glorious Norfolk

Booked for a one night stay in our camper van.   Very helpful on 'phone and welcoming arrival.   Great campsite - loved our pitch and will definitely ask for this one again!  Perfect weather, perfect location .... thank you.

May 6, 2014 by Garie and Sharon

Great location and friendly welcome

We stayed for one night but, given the location, should have stayed a couple more. A fairly basic site but with good hot showers, although they are very limited in number. Nice simple site. 

Apr 25, 2014 by Justusthree


We stayed August 13. 2 boys aged 6&7 and nanny came too (a young 68). It was a trial, so we opted for a tipi and took a gazebo to pitch next to us. Great success- ok weather was good but there was loads to do in the local area, site facilities were adequate (early risers got the hot water in showers). The gazebo was needed as it was a bit cosy with 5 of us in the tipi. I appreciated the quiet nights as it helped settle kids down. Not sure the couple after a romantic night away that pitched next to us appreciated the cricket match that was going on! Defiantly a family site.

We had a wonderful weekend at this fantastic campsite in late August.  We were a group of three families with four children between us, and it would be hard to say whether the adults or kids had more fun.  We had pitches next to each other, with plenty of room around us and easy access to the excellent facilities.  It was very useful to have the well stocked shop just round the corner to stock up on breakfast bacon!  The location is second to none.  We had a perfect day on the glorious Brancaster beach nearby, but could have just as easily chosen any number of other fantastic beaches.  Evenings spent at the relaxed Jolly Sailors pub, within easy walking distance even for the youngest amongst us, were enjoyed by all, and the tomatoes grown at the farm next door were a delicious souvenir to take home with us. Probably the most memorable part of the weekend was sitting in peace in the evening, watching the shooting stars flying across the enormous, unpolluted skies above us.  Utter bliss.  I'd thoroughly recommend this campsite.

One of the best campsites I've ever been too. Fabulous atmosphere, really relaxing and friendly. Nice showers - get up early to get a hot one though! Great location to explore North Norfolk. Will be going back.. maybe to try a tipi next :)

Deepdale Backpackers and Campers

This is a good campsite, though I agree with an earlier reviewer that when full you are very close to neighbours, often on three sides and the shower facilities are stretched.  But it is a great location with a good shop and cafe. BUT this season in 2013 they say they have changed the rules and the maximum stay under any circumstances is 7 nights. This is really very disappointing, and, I would have thought, a peculiar business decision. I am sad that I shall probably not go there again since I can't face the hassle of packing up and moving on. I am surprised and quite upset.

Mixed Review...

Just got back from a 6 (should’ve been 7) night stay at Deepdale... It’s a lovely site in a good location with great staff & lots of great features; the proximity of great eating places, a supermarket and great cafe just off the site & 2 cracking pubs nearby! Not to mention Holkham Beach & House right on it’s doorstep! But there are a few small issues! Firstly 4/5 unisex showers for the amount of pitches (that were almost fully occupied for our entire stay) is just not enough.. queuing was definitely the order of the day! Secondly, this is not a quiet campsite, I know it’s the middle of the school holidays but children playing wasn’t a big issue even when the curfew wasn’t observed, the issue was the frequent low flying of military aircraft (even at night!). I know the site can’t control this but please warn people. The reason we didn’t stay the full 7 nights was due to another issue... excessive insect activity... I’m not squeamish when it comes to creepy crawlies and my husband & I are seasoned campers but we have never been bitten quite so much as we were here (not even on the dreaded west coast of Scotland!) It’s probably due to all the marsh land nearby...can I suggest you take lots of insect repellent when visiting this site... I know we will be when we go back!

Deepdale Backpackers and Campers

Stayed September 2011 for four nights. We found this a delightful campsite. The staff were friendly and helpful and the site was clean and well equipped. We were lucky that we had the best weather of the whole summer which helped. Staying the last week in September the site was not busy so we had no problem with access to the showers, loos or sinks at any time. We had our dog with us so we were very happy to discover that the cafe next door to the campsite is dog friendly as are the two closest pubs. Access to the coastal path is just across the road which was also great for walking the dog.

Deepdale Backpackers and Campers

I stayed at the Deepdale Campsite last weekend and found the facilities very good, there was always loo roll, they were clean etc etc, and there were enough toilets/showers, ie no queueing....which is always important! The campsite is an eco friendly one, which is great too.

The evening curfew seemed to work very well, most people were quiet and in their tents by 10pm which was great, more about the morning curfew later....

Maybe the first weekend in September was too late in the season because, there was virtually no grass left on our plot. This isn't neccasarily a major problem because we have good quality thermarests, but had it rained we would have been camping in mud, as it was it was very windy, so all the grit blew into our tent and food, not pleasant.

The size of the plot was another issue, 'small' would be an understatement. Yes there was space for our 3 man tent and medium sized car, but it meant that we were VERY close to our neighbours, both sides. The campsite in general was very busy, and I suspect the plots were intentionally small so as to pack more people onto the site.

Unfortunately this means that this supposedly quiet campsite was in fact quite a noisy campsite....especially in the morning (even before the 8am curfew) there were car doors slamming, dogs barking and children screaming and running past our sleepy heads.

I was in truth very disappointed with this site, it had been recommended to us from some good friends who also camp regularly so we thought we were onto a winner.

The final blow was dealt when I returned home and found I had a voicemail on my mobile from the campsite, left at 12.41pm, we were supposed to be off the campsite by 12 noon, but since we had been rudely awoken early in the morning, we had taken it easy, had a nice breakfast, washed up, showered, and packed up the tent, finally leaving around 1.30. The message said it had gone 12pm and our tent was still there, please could we return to the tent take it down and leave. Bearing in mind the campsite was all but deserted by this time some flexibility would have been nice. In short, we won't be revisiting, neither will we be recommending.

Deepdale Backpackers and Campers

I loved this place! I, my partner and 4 year old daughter stayed in a tipi in April.

The setting is beautiful, really spacious with fields of wildflowers, poppies behind.

The showers/ facilities are really good, close by and clean., with an environmentally conscious ethos. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We used the café for breakfast each day as the food was very good and does a lot more than egg and chips. Also opens for evening meals with a BYO I think.

Loads to do around the area. We cycled a lot.

The tipi was really comfortable, and this is despite the fact that we had torrential rain and gale force winds. We were dry and the fire worked really well although we kept the tent flaps open. Our daughter loved it. I'll nevre stay in a nylon tent again. I want a bell tent now!

This place had a nice hippie/relaxed vibe bit with great facilities which can't be said of a place I stayed somewher in Kent!

Deepdale Backpackers and Campers

Burnham Deepdale is a great place. It's not really in walking distance of the beech but a short drive gets you to some great places including Holkham Beech which was the reason for the visit (and worth it). I stayed with 6 friends over 3 nights - the final night in the hostel which had great facilities and a nice atmosphere, the other two nights in a tipi. To me the tipi is overpriced. It ended up costing us as much per night as the hostel (which had beds, toilets etc etc) and really there's not much to it. It was fun but pretty smokey and cold (as went in October) so better value to camp in your own tent or stay in the hostel.

Not that I didn't enjoy the stay and would recommend it to anyone.
