About Deepdale Camping
Deepdale Farm, in Burnham, North Norfolk, is a 1,300-acre working farm. It is also the base of an award-winning eco and family friendly coast campsite where you can either camp using your own camping equipment, stay in a tipi, or a yurt or a shepherd's hut throughout the year as this place never closes! It practically caters for anyone – unless that is you have no desire to move out of the boutique hotel circle – which would be a shame!
The Away with the Kids review
Deepdale Camping is open all year for tents (no larger than 6-7 metres) and small campervans. Set on five well-kept paddocks in the beautiful village of Burnham Deepdale the site offers the perfect base to discover the north Norfolk coast all year round.
The campsite has spotless modern toilet and showers, with underfloor heating, and washing up facilities. Like the rest of the site these are eco-friendly being heated by solar panels, with a backup oil boiler. Campers are all encouraged to recycle responsibly.
The farm has set out to provide everything you might need for your stay - there's the visitor information centre - more of that below, the café, laundry facilities, a supermarket selling all of your basic provisions, a petrol station, fat face clothing store, disabled facilities, discounts off local businesses, mail holding, luggage storage - as well as a walk free baggage service! - as well as the new shower and toilet block complete with underfloor heating provided by solar panels. Free wi-fi is available in the café. There is no children's playground but a wealth of space to play in and a very laid back atmosphere in which to make loads of new friends.
The north Norfolk coast is an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and is famous for it's nature and bird reserves especially at Titchwell and Holkham. Burnham's village church, with it's Norman Font and Saxon Roundtower, is part of a chain of ancient churches dotted along the coastline; there are also lots of stately homes and historical buildings close by.
Activities are available in abundance; the information centre will arm you with all you need to find them. It stocks maps, leaflets on local attractions, pubs and restaurants, local transport information as well as camping essentials including charcoal, batteries, torches and beach games. You can begin a walk straight from your tent, there are fabulous hiking paths for the more adventurous, cycling (bikes are available to hire) and watersports and kiting along the coast. There are fabulous wide - and safe - beaches at Wells and Holkham, quaint villages to explore, miniature railways, touristy resorts (if the fancy takes you) and excellent restaurants and pubs to eat, drink and be merry in!
The café serves food from 7.30am to 4.30pm (last orders) and is licensed. Be warned that you cannot blame a fuel shortage for your Trangia as supplies are on site, however you cannot not have a fabulous breakfast prepared for you - you're on your holidays . Full English, porridge and muesli are all available. Similarly the café will prepare packed lunches for your day out or prepare a meal for when you return - the perfect end to celebrate a successful day out spotting seals at Blakeney.
The site wisely operates a strict "no-noise" policy after 10 p.m. to keep both guests and neighbours of the site happy.
Excellent cafe next door offering Breakfast, Lunch, Afternoon Tea, Coffee and of course Cake.
