We sell firewood in bags, it’s a pretty good sized bag and nice dry wood. It is also possible to forage for deadwood or fallen wood for the campfire. We do frown on people bringing a saw and cutting branches off living trees.
Electricity & Communal Freezer
Our communal barn has some sockets for for charging phones or laptops. Anything else please ask. There is also a large chest freezer for cooling your ice-packs for your coolbox.
Showers and Loos
We do have nice, clean, sort of open air, wooden shower blocks and flushing loos dotted around the site. None of our pitches are more than a minute or two walk from a flushing loo. There are seperate sinks with hot and cold water for both personal hygiene and washing up. We have the brickyard shower, see photos in the gallery section. The hot showers work at the touch of a button and the loos flush. It’s still a pretty unique set up and we get a lot of compliments about our facilities. There are also several long drop or compost loos.
Washing Up Stand
We have a lovely washing up stand with two large sinks and a huge draining area made of reclaimed slate. It has hot and cold running water from large commercial kitchen shower taps. All the water on the site is drinking water, even from the standpipes so no need to buy lots of bottled water if you don’t want to.
When do we start taking bookings?
We don’t take bookings until the 1st March. This is because we like to keep the site with that spontaneous feel. We’ve always done it this way, except for our safari tents, we take bookings all year round on those on our glamping website www.norfolkcoastalglamping.co.uk
There is plenty of time from March 1st to make your booking for our regular camping. Please book by email.
Safari Tent Bookings
We have an availability calendar for our safari tents set up here: http://norfolkcoastalglamping.co.uk/availability-checker/
Bank holidays, we always make the bookings from Friday to Monday, a block booking.
We have found that when everyone arrives on the same day and all the faces stay the same for the whole weekend, the atmosphere down here becomes really relaxed, friendships are made and everyone has a really lovely time.
If you can book in from the Friday to the Monday then we’d love to take your booking.
How much is it?
Thank you for your enquiry, we do have space for you on those dates. All our prices are on our website www.norfolkbrickyard.co.uk/price-list
It’s peak season from May 15th – Sept 25th. Prices are per night.
Please make your booking via email.
Noise restrictions and music?
We are a wild campsite and we like everyone to have a bit of privacy and limited interruption from other campers. Because we are in the country, sound can travel, especially on a windless night. You might not be able to see them but they are there, please respect the other campers on the site. We ask that there is no loud noise or music after 7.30pm. You can play quiet music until 10pm but unless it’s a guitar, banjo, harmonica or other acoustic music, it has to stop at 10pm. Midnight drumming is not allowed.
What time can we arrive?
Officially, check-in is not until 3pm but we are flexible on that. If you want to come earlier please let us know. If you can’t get straight onto your pitch you can hang out in our barn for a bit and relax after your journey until it’s free. Official check-out is 11am. Most people have packed up and left by about 11 or 12pm. If you want to stay later just let me know and I will see what we can do.
There is a late arrival fee of £10 if you get here after dark.
As a general rule we don’t really reserve individual pitches on the site. Some people stay for a week or more so it’s hard to keep certain pitches free.
All our pitches have a ring of bricks for a campfire, most of them are completely private and those that aren’t are mainly secluded.
Do get here early if you want to get a specific pitch as it is really a first come first served basis unless you are a large group.
