All 4 vintage glamping units have been beautifully restored and have many retro Americana accents and furnishings along with modern essentials. Each has electric sockets, a small chemical toilet, fridge, hob and oven or grill on board, tea, coffee, sugar, pans, utensils, crockery and cutlery, electric heater, radio, hairdryer, linen and towels, plus a £10 voucher for the local farm shop. In the 'Camp HQ' and Cart Shed the bathrooms boast super clean luxury hotel style showers and facilities. Outside there are charcoal BBQs, fire pits (logs and charcoal available to buy) and picnic benches.
We continually assess the Covid19 situation and adjust our practises and processes accordingly. For example - increased cleaning and disinfecting of communal areas, allocated showers to reduce sharing of facilities, hand washing and sanitising stations outside communal areas, disinfectant sprays for guests to wipe down facilities before and after use.
Our site is beautifully quiet and relaxed. Our three cats (Bishy, Bumble and Honey) roam the site and often come and say hi to the guests. We are very lucky to be surrounded by nature with guests frequently spotting hares, rabbits, buzzards, deer, bees and butterflies and owls can be heard 'twit twooing' day and night.
NB. The Bubble is a compact trailer. The bed is not a full double so if you are 'well built' this may not be the van for you. The Caravanner bed also loses a small amount of area as the mattress sits in the curve of the Airstream's 'tail' so we have cut down the edges of the memory foam to fit. If you are happy to cosy up to your bed partner then you'll be fine!! If you want a full double bed then book the Jewel or Sovereign. If you are coming as a parent and child duo then The Jewel may suit you best unless the child is under 5 years old.
Couples, families and groups who book-out all the accommodation are welcome. Unfortunately tents, campervans, caravans and dogs are not.
Although in a peaceful and rural location Tin Can is well placed for exploring the expansive waterways of the Norfolk Broads, the stunning Norfolk and Suffolk coastlines, and the historic City of Norwich - car essential! Guests are sent a welcome pack brimming with local info before their stay, here are a few of the local highlights...
Water: Our guests love to hire kayaks, paddle boards and day boats from various outlets nearby and while away some relaxing time on the quiet rivers.
Seaside: Southwold is a 45 minute drive away and boasts excellent beaches, fabulous food, crabbing off the quayside for kids, cute beach huts and fantastic independent shops. There is a wonderful beach just 30 minutes away at Gorleston where you can also take in some Banksy artwork.

Swim: Beccles Lido is a wonderful outdoor pool for all ages and beautifully heated n the summer time.

We enjoyed 6 days at this amazing campsite. The retro airstreamer, bbq and fire pit made a perfect camping experience for our 4 year old. The shower and kitchen facilities were clean to very high standards. The location is perfect for exploring Norfolk!
A wonderful experience!
Accommodation - Bubble Air streamer, Tin Can Camping, Norfolk Loved our stay in the Bubble! Inside the air streamer there was everything we could need to enjoy our holiday. We loved sitting outside having a BBQ then lighting the fire when it got chilly - it was so beautiful when the fairy lights came on. Dan, the host was very friendly and helpful. The information pack written by Emma was the best - so detailed, it really helped us to plan our days. We enjoyed a day at Southwold, went to the harbour for fresh sea food at the Sole bay fish shack then took the boat to the pretty village of Walberswick, we also hired a boat and sailed down the broads stopping to eat our yummy picnic bought from the Earsham Street Deli. On our way home we used our complimentary voucher for brunch at Old Hall Farm - it was gorgeous and I couldn’t leave without getting take out scones with jam and clotted cream. A wonderful experience!
A wonderful glamping experience
We stayed for 5 nights in the Jewel and had a wonderful relaxing holiday. Very different from our usual holidays but we hope to return soon. It was so easy to get a boat on the broads for a day and Southwold was delightful with fish and chips on the beach after a swim, it was very hot!
A wonderful short break in the Bubble!
Perfect short break. The site is just beautiful. The caravans have been restored sympathetically but with some mod cons. The facilities were amongst the best we have ever seen and so clean. Emma sent us a lot of very useful info about the area so we were able to make the most of an area we don’t know. Well worth a visit
Stunning site, perfect holiday
I stayed in The Caravanner with my fiancé for 5 days. The owners have created a little slice of paradise here; the airstream has been lovingly maintained with a cool retro vibe, kept clean and cosy and set in a lovely little orchard lit with festoon lighting and patrolled by a pheasant family and a trio of friendly cats. We loved all of the facilities, and were delighted that there was a huge kitchen, pristine shower room, and electric car charging point on the site. The owners made us feel very welcome, giving fantastic suggestions for restaurants nearby, and offering to pre-light the BBQ for our arrival. We couldn’t have been happier with our stay and hope to visit again soon!
We had the most wonderful time!
Such a beautifully peaceful and intimate site. Our accommodation, (the Sovereign), was just as we expected if not more with the camp HQ space providing the extra little luxuries for us to enjoy during our stay. The site became magical at night with all the lovely lighting features, and what made it more lovely was the fact that we had the whole place to ourselves! Our hosts were super laid back and provided everything we needed for the perfect stay. Such a great location and perfectly placed for some interesting days out. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending Tin Can Camping for a fantastic break away from it all!
Really novel enjoyable experience. Good fun
Very friendly hosts. Excellent facilities. Nice touches such as the night lighting round the site.
Wonderful retro glamping experience
We had a wonderful relaxing week staying in the Sovereign, doing very little other than a few walks, eating, reading and relaxing - and it was bliss. We loved the Airstream - stylish, comfortable, well kitted out, the bed was fantastically comfortable, with a chemical loo for middle of the night trips, and a lovely wood burner stove when it got a bit chillier towards the end of our stay. The toilet and shower facilities are absolutely 5 star - luxurious, spotless and superb rainforest-style showers - better than our own at home! Emma was just lovely and we were really touched by her spontaneous gift to us of a couple of Portuguese egg tarts (we were meant to be in Portugal and Spain that week, but that was cancelled due to the pandemic). Everything was Covid-safe and its clear that Emma and Dan have put in a lot of work to make the site as Covid-safe as possible - with hand sanitiser points, sanitiser sprays and paper towels in the bathrooms. And of course there are only 4 trailers, well spaced apart, so it all made for a pretty perfect socially distanced holiday. This is our first UK holiday in the best part of 10 years and we really, really enjoyed this experience. Honey and Bishy the cats were such cutie pies - hard to tell them apart at times - so if you love cats, you'll be right at home here! We are considering booking again for next year!
Awesome and unique stay!!
This was a great unique holiday!! The owners were really helpful and always there if you needed anything. The bathroom facilities were 5star!! Our kids loved the caravan especially the bunk beds. It was great to know there was heating and it took the edge of one cool morning!! As there are only 4 caravans it felt really safe and cozy!! The view outside with the fairy lights was amazing
It is the most beautiful place spent 3 nights there it was so relaxing it's like a little piece of heaven will most definitely be going back
Always loved an airstream caravan and this was a fine example. We had a lovely 3 night stay, really cosy, everything we needed. Such a lovely setting. Thank you.
Unique and peaceful.
Stayed in the Airstream Bubble and it was brilliant. Comfortable and very well stocked with all you could need. Emma the owner was so friendly and welcoming. The Covid measures in place were sensible and didn’t impact on the pleasure of our stay. Would thoroughly recommend this for a cosy, unusual and comfortable holiday. The campsite itself is very well tended and in very peavful surroundings. Great for chilling out and escaping the world for a while. The facilities were cleaned regularly and maintained to a high standard. A great experience that we would enjoy again!
We loved our stay here. The caravan was super comfy and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The facilities were nice and clean, and Covid measures felt very safe. It was a great base for exploring Suffolk and Norfolk and we’d definitely come back!
A relaxing delightful place
The Bubble airstream, was a small but perfectly formed 1950’s experience, but was also very comfortable. The site is welcoming and the COVID 19 measures were well done and made us feel very safe. I would recommend this site to anyone.
A Fantas-Tin Stay !!
Alice and I would like to thank Tin Can Camping for a lovely time staying in your 2 berth caravan this past weekend; we found it cozy and relaxing with all necessary amenities met. Your recommendation for the paddleboarding is very much appreciated, it made our weekend. We also enjoyed watching the ducklings and the cat ponder around the grounds.
Relaxing long weekend
We stayed for 3 nights in the Caravanner airstream. The van was very cute and cosy with pretty much everything you could need for self catering, except for a toaster, but a quick trip to camp HQ was all that was needed to toast the bread. The site is great, clean, quiet and well equipped with fire pit and BBQ to be borrowed. The only very slight issue was the size of the bed in this van, it’s very short on one side due to the curve so if you are on the taller side then one of the other caravans might be a better option. It’s also very hard to get in and out of due to a very small gap - I got a few bruises climbing out in the night for toilet trips!
Lovely site, caravans are well apart in a very nice wooded clearing. The breakfast was wonderful, with very good quality local produce. The site would be ideal for families as there is lots of space for the kids to roam in safety. The owners Dan and Emma are very friendly and helpful and the camp HQ facilities are very good with lots of games and toys for the young ones, and even a pool table for Mum and Dad! We had a very nice break, shame about the weather!
The trailer was fabulous and so well thought out and appointed with all the little retro touches making a really lovely, comfortable stay. The bed was great and the bedding made it all so cosy. The welcome breakfast pack was delicious. Having the added bonus of the shower facilities and kitchen (at Camp HQ) was great and although we could quite easily have cooked in the trailer and showered there too, it made it all just more ‘comfortable’. We will be back!
We fell in love with the place
We stayed for the last weekend in August, in the amazing ‘caravanner’. We came for something fun to do for my husbands birthday and got so much more than expected. Dan & Emma have created something wonderfully unique and endearing. The site is so peaceful and offers amazing privacy for couples. We loved bbqing every night, sitting out by the fire pit and playing cards. The breakfast was perfect camping fare and it was a novelty to cook in the on board kitchen. The history of the van is so intriguing and we had fun imagining all the places it had been and the people it had seen in its 60 years. We absolutely loved the place and will recommend it to everyone we know! We’d love to come back in the future and try one of the other ‘Tin Cans’ on offer.
A jewel of Norfolk
We booked this after looking at the images on the site of the vintage American caravans. We hired the Jewel for the weekend and it was such a beautiful time. The site was peaceful, we cooked on the bbq every night and had a campfire with marshmallows. Emma and Dan were incredibly welcoming and helpful, gave use some great tips on the local area. Best thing we did was hire canoes and wild swimming on the broads. Beautiful weekend and will definitely be visiting again.
Tin Can Camping is a must visit!
We have just returned from the most fabulous weekend staying in the 'caravanner' at Tin Can camping. Our hosts Emma and Dan had thought of everything to make our 'glamping' weekend just perfect. From the amazing breakfast feast in the fridge on arrival (sausages, bacon, eggs, delicious raspberries and strawberries...) and fresh brownie and carrot cake, to the fluffy John Lewis towels and digital radio with ipod connector. Our gorgeous Airstream had a fire pit and barbecue, with ample charcoal and logs for our stay. The 'shared' facilities were spot on, super clean with everything you need and more. Unfortunately the pool table must have been on the wonk as I didn't manage to win a single game! ;o) We had a fabulous weekend and cannot recommend it highly enough.
Loved it all
What a great way to spend a long weekend! We loved everything: very comfy bed, nice retro interior with everything you need for preparing any meal you wish, peacefull surroundings, charcoal BBQ, picnic table...everything you need has been provided for. The fridge came fully stocked with all sorts of locally sourced breakfast goodies from a nearby farm to last for days - quality! Emma's & Dan's well thought of guide to the local area came in very handy as without it we'd most likely miss out on little gems like Old Hall Farm, winery and much more! We would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes spending time in nature, having BBQs and just sitting back and chilling!
A lovely cute getaway with special touches
Such a cute stay in the Jewel. Lots of little touches from the decor to the hamper made it really personal. We were greeted by Emma on arrival so felt really welcome and at home to just get along. We just had a quiet dad + son next to us in a new airstream so it was quiet, though I wonder if with more couples in the other two caravans that it would seem overlooked. Super nice bathrooms - didn't use the one in the caravan! - so we felt comfortable. BBQ's and chairs for use was great. Two cheeky outdoor cats going around so be aware in the middle of the night if you go for a wee!! Didn't make use of the games room/lounge because we just didn't really stay long enough but that was a cosy thing to have access to. The site is easy to get to provided you use Google Maps rather than Sat Nav. Local area we did find a bit lacking but I guess it depends what you're looking for, and it seems just a short weekend isn't really enough to get to know it - but this did mean we spent more time in the caravan + outside it just chilling out (not a place to get to using public transport at least). We had lovely weather so it was a great opportunity to hang out and enjoy what their site had to offer. Thanks for the stay and the special time!
Loved it all
A birthday treat for Sam & what a treat , we were welcomed by Cindy & Jules and given a guided tour , this place is amazing and a few nice surprises thrown in , like the postcard and the candle with the brownies wishing Sam a happy birthday, she loved it and the brownies . We visited loddon farmers market and came back with lots of goodies , then had a drink at the white horse chedgrave, a very nice place indeed . Shopping in bungay was also great so many hidden little shops , try it and totally explore . Back at the site we enjoyed the bubble, so well restored , although we cooked our breakfast in the barn , played pool , dominoes & boule , there is everything to keep you occupied . One regret we never got to meet Emma and Dan , but we are already talking about going again . So see you soon . Sam and Rik .
The breakfast, the hosts, proper glamping!
Wonderful stay in the Airstream Bubble! Caravan was perfect, lots of lovely touches. The barn provided an excellent extra space to cook and relax plus the showers were a welcome addition and at such a high standard. Breakfast was amazing too with high quality items. Would definitely stay again!
An amazing mini break
Emma and Dan were there on arrival to show us around the site. Perfect secluded getaway. Breakfast a treat and lovely to have a separate shower, toilet and social room. We made the most of the weather and visited Southwold and popped to the most amazing fish and chip restaurant on the harbour reccommended in the caravanna guide. We also visited a fab pizza place in Bungay. Another great place to enjoy yummy food. We hope many more couples get to escape for a break at Emma and Dan's unique Tin Can Camping
You must stay here!
Loved staying at the Bubble! I'd booked it as a surprise for my boyfriend and we really enjoyed the glamping style experience it gave us. The bubble is small, but functional and very well kitted out and cozy! We spent one day exploring the local area and had a fantastic BBQ whilst watching the sun set from outside our Airstream. Emma was very responsive and gave us an early check in when we couldn't make our original booking. The breakfast hamper lasted us 3 mornings and the showers are wonderful. Recommend if you want an usual but comfortable experience in a secluded, beautiful spot in the Broads. Bring a car! Thanks Emma & Dan
A peace of heaven
We stayed in the "jewel" for 4 nights. We had a wonderful time. The caravan was lovely, had everything we needed and more. It was the most peaceful camping experience we have ever had. With only 3 caravans on site we all had our individual space, table and chairs on a decking area and fire pit. The luxury "hq" which we shared, had amazing double showers, full kitchen, pool table and sitting area. These facilities made for a perfect stay. The surrounding areas were great for walking and playing around on the canal. Thank you Emma and Dan for making this place available to us and hopefully we will return.
Happiness in a can!
When our own campervan broke down just before our planned holidays we were looking for a stay that would bring us all the things we love about camping - a cool retro home on wheels (important!), campfires, comfort, cooking and eating outdoors, and new places to explore. We were so lucky to find all this at short notice by staying in the Caravanner! We were excited to stay inside an airstream for the first time after admiring them from afar for years - this one is authentically restored with lots of lovely details and is really spacious for a couple. Emma and Dan have left lots of room around each trailer too, with a fire pit and picnic table. Its a short walk through the maturing garden to what must be the best shower and toilet facilities I think we've ever had on a site, housed in a cool and cosy barn, complete with lounge, pool table, full kitchen and coffee making machine. Its so thoughtful having this extra space and I think that's what makes Emma and Dan's place stand out - our kitchen in the trailer was stocked with local sausages and bacon, eggs, bread, milk, butter, strawberries and chocolate brownies, yogurt, cereals and bananas, as well as a bottle of prosecco to pop on arrival, which was brilliant to celebrate after the stress of our own van troubles! There were even ice creams in the freezer, and wood for one fire and charcoal for BBQs included. You could arrive here with very little and be really set up and well looked after. We did go out to explore the amazing coastline and watery ways of Norfolk but we loved getting 'home' to the Caravanner, taking cold beers out of the fridge and watching amazing sunsets in the big skies through the trees. Emma and Dan were super friendly and available whenever you needed them but were getting on with family life in the house while we played house in the airstream, which felt just the right balance. We smiled when the 'logs delivery man' turned up on the last night - their 5 year old boy driving his own cool little pick-up truck (with Dad following behind)! and we also smiled at the very affectionate cat that kept coming to hang out with us (and I say that as a dog person!). I've already been asked by a lot of friends for details of Tin Can Camping after they saw the photos and heard all about it - so I hope lots of people visit, it really deserves to do well!
