Brimming in wartime history, Dreamy Hollow is home to three-and-a-half acres of Word War I training trenches and beautiful woodland pitches

It’s not often you can pitch somewhere steeped in wartime history. Dreamy Hollow is home to three and a half acres of First World War training trenches, with evidence indicating these were dug by The Lovat Scouts back in 1915. “It's got a character about it that just grips you” describes campsite owner Nigel Day who first believed the tracks were drainage ditches, before aerial photographs taken by the RAF revealed its vast, snaking network. Today, Dreamy Hollow is a wonderfully withdrawn, back-to-basics campsite, perfectly positioned to explore the beautiful North Norfolk Coast.

The seven pitches at Dreamy Hollow are as individual as the campers who pitch there. Some are secluded and sheltered, whilst others are elevated with fantastic views across the open Norfolk countryside. ‘The Hollow’ is a firm favourite, so be sure to book well in advance. This peaceful, south facing space has it's own communal fire-pit and is close to the WC's and drinking water point. ‘The Glade’ is a superb choice for families and groups, with ample room (29m x 27m) to accommodate two huge tents (up to 12 person), or numerous smaller tents, providing they are six metres apart. Facilities? Okay, they are not quite up to Savoy standards, however the invigorating ‘Jungle Showers’ are fun and always immaculately clean.

There’s an age-old saying that residents of Norfolk have “one foot on the land and one in the sea”, however there’s an interesting spread of sights in between. The picturesque Norfolk Broads beckon for boaters, bird-watchers flock to its marshy nature reserves and the county’s unspoilt coastline is bordered by flint houses and boats hauling in today’s fresh catch. And when civilisation calls, campers can head for the vibrant city of Norwich. In addition to a castle, cathedrals and medieval churches galore, Norwich has a decent selection of lively pubs, cafés and restaurants.

Set in one of the most sparsely populated parts of England, Dreamy Hollow is ‘proper camping’ and an ideal destination to get away from it all. Together with welcoming Nigel, the site is run by a Christian Limited Company with a vision to develop neglected land and turn it into a unique, secluded camping experience. And with beautiful woodland pitches and a dramatic history, we think they’ve succeeded.
