Back-to-basics camping in rural Norfolk, peaceful, no music, with views of a working windmill and within driving distance of the beach.

Home to some of the most fertile soils in the UK, Norfolk is fabled farmer country and, as a result, it’s beautiful camping country too. Big skies, big views, fields of barley shimmering in the breeze and, here in Bircham, a picture-perfect windmill to gaze out upon as you stride across the footpaths. It’s a timeless scene, best enjoyed from a rather timeless campsite, which, though it may only have opened in 2020, is exactly what Meadow Camping is.

The simple, no-nonsense name of the campsite is perhaps symbolic of what you’ll find here. This is classic camping of old with a spacious eight-acres of meadow to spread out on and only tents allowed. Open for just 56 days in 2020, this is a true ‘pop-up’ campsite, with portable toilet facilities, a couple of showers and a few fresh water taps to get your drinking and washing-up water from. Otherwise it’s all about space, freedom and enjoying a good campfire.

It’s around six or seven miles to the beach, depending on which one you chose. The semi-circular hump of North Norfolk and the inland location of the campsite mean that, whichever direction you radiate out on, you’ll eventually come to a good sweep of sand, be it Hunstanton beach (best for a little town life), Brancaster Beach (best for nearby pubs) or Holkham (best for space and all-weather wandering, with woods to shelter in if it rains). The Sandringham Estate is also nearby – it’s possible to cycle – but no stay here would be complete without following the footpath to the windmill and climbing to the top. You can see the milling wheels at work and even try baking your own bread with their flour. It’s a timeless experience indeed. And rather tasty too.



Soak up the freedom and space the Countryside has to offer. This area is well served with activities and excursions to suit all tastes.

Suitable For

Suitable for families or individuals who appreciate the quiet space with spacious pitches in a rural setting.


I love to hear the Woodpeckers, watch the Red Kites and Egyptian Geese and the beautiful sunsets. Big starry skies at night and the space to run and run. Great lanes for walking.

Food & Drink

So many fabulous pubs around here we are spoilt for choice, plus good fish and chip shops, Thai and Chinese takeaway and Pizza restaurants.

The Owner Says

Beautiful 8-acre meadow  in West Norfolk. Ideal location for beaches, bird watching and attractions. Spacious with big skies at night.

This is a quiet, family friendly site.  Strictly NO MUSIC, we do not allow music played from cars or devices - bring the guitar instead!  Please respect others around you and our neighbours during your stay, keep noise to a minimum especially after dark.

The Meadow is a back to basics campsite, we called it Meadow Camping as that is what it is, no frills, no glamour, just a lovely meadow to camp and chill on. Bring your own mod cons if needed as all that is on site is a Tap, Toilets and if you have your own sanitation units we have an Elsan Tank to empty your own Toilets into.  Tents, Dogs and small camper vans are acceptable, motor homes and caravans unfortunately are not allowed.

We have got showers. Two hand built gas heated hot showers for you to have a proper wash in.  Both have perspex roofs and no windows so light and airy with no peeking possible! 

Fire Pits and Barbecues are allowed as long as they are off the ground, no scorching or putting fire to the grass please and there is a water tap onsite.  We prefer charcoal to wood as there is less smoke drift for other campers and neighbours, we can supply a good quality BBQ friendly charcoal for £12 a bag.

We also run the tourist attraction at Bircham Windmill where you can get a full English breakfast every day from 9am, fresh bread or a cream tea. Visitors can climb to the top and make their own bread and in the village you will find a pub, shop and play ground. Nearby are various beaches, from Hunstanton dunes to pinewoods and rolling waves at Wells. Lovely rural pubs, local shopping, Sandringham House and much more.

Beautiful lanes to walk along - however, please do not walk on adjacent farmland, it is NOT OK to walk on fields, you must stick to the footpaths and please pick up after your dog, we prefer a 'flick stick' to plastic.  Take a stick with you and flick any mess into the hedgerows.  Do not put poop in plastic bags and leave it behind.

All dogs must be kept on leads when walking along the lanes - there is wildlife and  many nesting birds in the hedgerows that are easily disturbed.
