Almost wild camping in a central location along the North Norfolk coast, with just eight pitches and ample space

Nature does the work in North Norfolk. Yes, the old market town of Holt is quaint and foodie and Benedictine Binham Priory is a historic treasure, but it’s really the coast that people come for. The shingle beach at Salthouse, the sweeping sands of Holkham Bay, the tidal marshes at Blakeney where seals make their home out on the point. Nature does its thing and holidaymakers enjoy it. It’s the same approach at Thornage Camping, six miles inland, pocketed in the little village of Thornage. There’s little to the campsite. It’s a meadow and it’s left pretty natural. That’s the North Norfolk way and it's just the way we like it.

The campsite is really designed for those who don’t mind something very similar to wild camping but who still want a decent toilet. There are no showers and the water supply comes from a big tank, so it really is a pretty minimal place, but with just eight pitches across three acres, you’re guaranteed plenty of space and there’s a wonderfully quiet and hidden ambiance, with tents populating the pockets in the long grass and not a caravan in sight.

The surrounding village is a mixture of old flint cottages and newer brick builds, along with an ancient church in a sea of cow parsley. There’s no pub but you can drive five minutes to a good family-friendly inn in Letheringsett where there’s also a working watermill with a pleasant riverside picnic area alongside. There are plenty of good dining options in Holt, too, also five minutes away.

For the coast, the campsite finds itself midway along the most well-known stretch of North Norfolk. From Holkham Hall in the east to Sheringham and Cromer in the west, nothing is more than half an hour in the car and some of the most exciting bits are within 15 minutes. Book a boat trip from Morston Quay to see the birds and seals out on Blakeney Point or take your binoculars to Cley Marshes Visitor Centre, which is built in the style of a giant bird hide. It’s a good place to revel in more nature, doing its natural, naturey thing. It's the reason people come to Norfolk and, of course, to a natural spot like tiny Thornage Camping.
