Norfolk Coast B&B Cottages & Camping has everything you might want from a holiday in Norfolk.
It's completely unusual in that it comprises the following versatile forms of accommodation for your special Norfolk break:
This whole set up is in private, incredibly peaceful and secluded farmland and has fantastic rural views over the open marshland and is just a 2 min walk to Heacham beach.
This is the perfect location for a countryside getaway, yet close enough to amenities, nature reserves, beaches and walks.
What more could you ask for from a campsite, B&B or self catering holiday in Norfolk?!
Owned by Nigel and Carol Marsh, Norfolk Coast B&B Cottages & Camping was a neglected dairy farm when they bought it.
Nigel immediately started the process of setting up the campsite, converted one of the barns into a self-catering cottage, as well as renovating some of the old barns to make 3 B&B’s. Even a few of the old stone feeding troughs are being used as flower beds!
The rest of the farm is taking shape, with the added addition of shepherd's huts and glamping tents.
The whole ethos of Norfolk Coast B&B Cottages & Camping is a back to basics, relaxed campsite with nothing too over the top at all. Nigel and Carol want you to "sit back and just enjoy the open air, surrounding peaceful countryside and sea breezes". That can all be done here at this campsite.
This is good old-fashioned camping in tents where campfires, firepits and BBQ’s are allowed (can be hired at a small cost) and conversation is definitely encouraged! There is also room for motorhomes, but please check here on the website for what you can book.
Turning up in your wellies is not going to be frowned upon! And dogs are welcome (there is a small daily charge for dogs).
Your stay here is going to be relaxed, flexible and enjoyable!
Although the site is adjacent to a static caravan park, you just wouldn't know it - the surrounding peace and quiet really hits you when you arrive, and the whole area has a wonderful rural farm feel to it. The reason for this is that the whole of the Norfolk Coast B&B Cottages & Camping site sits below the road so you are secluded and private from anything else around you.
And it’s delightfully peaceful too!
And even better, it's located just a 2 minute walk away from Heacham South Beach which is a lovely, remote and quiet dog friendly beach.
The campsite is on flat ground (always a bonus!), surrounded by open fields looking east over the marshland and towards Snettisham and the now well known Ken Hill Estate (thanks to the BBC's Springwatch).
And because it faces east, and is on the west coast of Norfolk, you have the unusual occurrence of a sunrise in the morning and a sunset in the evening!
This is a lovely small hassle-free campsite where you can bring any size tent, pitch up in the flat field and just enjoy the far reaching views over the open meadows and quite countryside, and experience the “wild” feel.
Nothing is complicated here and the character of the site is to keep it simple but connect back with nature and people!
There is a wash up area besides the shower block with hot water taps and sinks, so everyone can get fully involved! Great to get the kids helping too!
One of the great things about the B&B’s here is that they don’t insist on a 2 night minimum stay. Sometimes you just want to get away for one night.
There are 3 B&B’s, all recently renovated from the dairy barns.
All three rooms are subtly decorated with the original brickwork exposed in many of the bedrooms.
Why not look at what Norfolk Coast B&B Cottages & Camping offer in the way of B&B's here.
Breakfast is continental here, again keeping it simple but good, and is taken in the separate Breakfast Room, a quick walk across the patio or shingle from the bedrooms.
The intention at Norfolk Coast B&B Cottages and Campsite is for you to relax, enjoy yourselves, chat to your neighbours and explore the surrounding Norfolk Countryside. It’s not for you to be in your room all day! This breakfast room really has that homely feel to it.
No need to dress up for breakfast either!
You can also enjoy the setting sun with a BBQ on the patio, or bring back a takeaway meal which you can eat in the Breakfast Room. Each B&B has its own chairs and tables outside on the shingle.
Sleeps 4 – 2 adults and 2 children
The Old Barn is part of the converted barn which is a fantastic self-catering cottage showing off it's original carrstone exterior as well as some of the exposed brickwork on the inside too.
It has a really relaxed feel to it, and has everything you would need for self catering. It has a lovely open plan kitchen with a separate living area with 2 sofas and double doors outside to a patio with garden furniture.
Upstairs is a bathroom, one double room and one twin bedded room.
All these B&B accommodations can be very flexible in that you can take The Old Barn as well as any of the B&B’s meaning you can bring extended family and/or friends, but at the same time they can have their own access and privacy if needed. The Old Barn and The Roost have an interconnecting door if necessary.
There are 2 Shepherd's Huts in their own special secluded area away from the main campsite, with their own showers and an area to prepare food.
And there is one more Shepherds Hut which is adjacent to the glamping tents in the camping area.
Glamping - there are 2 glamping bell tents in the perfect location overlooking the fields.
All of these have fantastic views over towards the Ken Hill Estate.
Here you have 4 lovely self catering compact rooms adjacent to one another.
Each has a double bed, ensuite shower room, kitchenette, as well as a skylight so you can while away the night watching the stars whilst lying in bed.
Each comes with its own table and chairs to sit outside and enjoy the evening peace and quiet.
Heacham and Hunstanton are most well-known for incredible sunsets and if you’re lucky enough to have some excellent British weather, you’ll absolutely love sitting on the beach watching the sun go down. Heacham beach is one of the best places to be when this happens, and with only a few minutes’ walk to the beach, you have absolutely no excuse!
Any of the accommodation set up's here are an excellent place to base yourself for a bird watching holiday where you can see some incredible wader spectaculars and the early morning flight of the pink footed geese just a short walk or drive along the coast at Snettisham.
And it would be an excellent idea to bring some binoculars as you never know what you’ll see soaring over the open fields here at Norfolk Coast B&B Cottages & Campsite as you sit and relax whilst overlooking the meadows
If you’re not a bird watcher, why not use this campsite as the perfect place to gain a new experience? Try the wader spectacular or the flight of the pink footed geese which you can read more about here.
Snettisham beach and the RSPB site is just a short distance away and if you’re staying at Norfolk Coast B&B Cottages & Campsite and catch the right tide times, you really will get the most spectacular show of wildlife, along with the magical sunrises.
This really is an ideal place to base yourself if you’re coming to Norfolk for some birdwatching, and it’s also very close to Holme Dunes Nature Reserve and RSPB Titchwell.
You'll have a great holiday here due to the proximity to the beach and the rural surrounding countryside, so why not can check availability for here
