A brilliantly located and very friendly camping and glamping site with a well-established backpackers hostel attached.
Burnham Deepdale PE31 8DD 01485 210 256
An energetic and enterprising business, situated in an excellent position just off the main coastal road, in the heart of Burnham Deepdale, this wonderful campsite-cum-hostel-cum café and information centre has been around for years, and has recently received a loving and extensive revamp from its original owners. With multiple grass pitches, glamping in tipis and yurts, and a shepherd's hut and a backpackers hostel, it's long been the heart and soul of this coastal village – and not just because of the diversity and excellence of its accommodation, but also for the shops and cafés of Dalegate Market next door, its annual Christmas Market and regular summer activities and events. If you want to explore this part of the North Norfolk Coast on a budget, there's no better place. There are around 80 basic camping pitches for tents or campervans; 6 well-maintained tipis and yurts equipped with a cast-iron chimenea for heat, including kindling and fuel for the fire, foldaway chairs, a BBQ and a lantern; a shepherd's hut with wood-burner that makes a cosy roost for two; and of course the backpackers hostel which has both beds in dormitories and private en-suite rooms. Old school camping, or a spot of romantic glamping – it's basically up to you.
It's a peaceful yet busy site, and there are also diversions a-plenty in and around Burnham Deepdale. Kick-start the morning with a coffee at the café, browse the shops and pop-up retailers at the market or check out the site's excellent information centre and shop, and then hire a bike or slip on your walking boots. You can follow the nearby coastal path in either direction (west to Hunstanton or east to Wells), or just mess around in the marshes to your heart's content, before lunch at the excellent and renowned White Horse or Jolly Sailors – both in the village. You won't want to leave.
Our Favourite Spot
Sit in our backpackers courtyard as it floods with sunlight. Watch the sparrows busily exploring the hedges around the campsite. Enjoy the sunsets and the changing colours of the trees and fields. Relax by the fire pits during one of our music events.
The local area
We love the changing seasons and huge skies. You can enjoy a bracing walk on the beach, watch wildlife year round, take the dogs for a walk, take a moment to enjoy the views, find space to clear your head and find yourself.
Best local places to eat and drink
The North Norfolk Coast is a wonderful place to eat and drink. Next door you can get great breakfasts at Deepdale Cafe. There are two excellent pubs in the village, and many more in cycling distance. Try the local seafood, mussels in months with an 'r' in their name, lobsters, crabs, oysters, samphire and more, seriously delicious.

The site is approximately halfway between Hunstanton and Wells-next-the-Sea on A149 coast road, and we reckon the best way to reach Deepdale is on your bike or by way of the coastal path. But there's also the Coasthopper Bus Service, which stops operates every half-hour during summer (every hour during winter) and stops right at the site. The service runs both ways along the North Norfolk Coast, between King's Lynn, Sheringham and Cromer.
