Activities

The Norfolk Coast Cycleway extends all the way around the coast and the Holt Explorer Route is close to the campsite, picked up from the end of Kelling Road. The route includes the Wildflower Centre at Natural Surroundings (01263 711091) and the charming Glandford Shell Museum (01263 740081). The campsite can often organise cycle hire through Huff and Puff Cycle Hire (07500 865095) if you enquire in advance. Walkers will enjoy a footpath from Holt that takes you to the rare salt marshes of Cley and beyond to Blakeney Point where you can get up close to the seal colonies. It also links up with the extensive North Norfolk Coast Path. There are a number of delightful woodland walks close by too, including Holt Country Park (01263 513811) and the National Trust properties of Sheringham Park (01263 820550), Felbrigg Hall (01263 837444) and Blickling Hall, home of Ann Bolynn (01263 738030). Perhaps most importantly, however, are the beaches. Sheringham is a family favourite, backed by the traditional seaside town, and West Runton (great for rockpooling), Cromer (great for crabbing off the pier) and Overstrand beaches are also close by. It's a 40 minute drive to Norwich, the same to the Norfolk Broads and around the same to popular family attraction BeWilderwood (01692 633033).

Food & Drink

Monday night hosts an Asian streetfood night in the school summer holidays and Tuesday and Friday nights are pizza nights at Swallowtails – campers make their own pizzas and cook them in the earth ovens. Swallowtails also often sell local ciders and ales in the supplies shack, along with milk and other essentials. Elsewhere, Holt is within easy walking distance and has everything you need. The Owl Café (01263 713232) is a quaint little tea room serving homemade food throughout the day or try Byfords (01263 711400), a well known establishment in Holt, offering everything from tea and cake through to a 3 course meals. Open 7 days a week, Byford’s is located in what is thought to be the oldest building in Holt. Bakers & Larner (01263 712244) is another staple of the village, a fantastic food hall selling local produce and food from around the world, while, right in the centre of town, The Watermark Wine Bar & Restaurant (01263 710790) serves a varied menu throughout the day and plenty of wine for the evening! With kids, head to Letheringsett, where The King’s Head (01263 712691) has a huge garden for little ones to run wild in.
