This is why we don’t allow dogs or other pets.
We are a wild campsite. We are surrounded by wild creatures and wilderness.
There is a huge effort for conservation in and around this part of the North Norfolk coast. The Brickyard is just a few pixels in the bigger picture but it is our decision to not take dogs. We at the brickyard do all we can to support the excellently qualified and ecologically driven individuals who work so hard to maintain the local environment as part of the wider and magnificent Holkham Estate. Many of the practices employed for conservation are defined through decades of experience as well as the latest thinking on preserving biodiversity and countryside health.
We just love that at the brickyard, our guests are often thrilled to see deer, hares, stoats, weasels, pine martins and other creatures, just strolling through their pitch. There are so many animals that often stay away from even the scent of a domesticated pet like a dog. You would think they would be scared of humans too but not so much. Campers regularly come to tell us what they have seen. We have a thriving population of hedgehogs and we even saw a badger on our trailcam once. We leave lots of cover so our place is an amazing location for wild animals.
Many campers find alternative arrangements for their dog or dogs.
We hope you can come if you can leave the dogs behind.
