...Camping by the Beach

Our beautiful campsite here in Hunstanton is perfectly located for a Camping Bank Holiday by the sea with the open golden sands of Heacham South Beach just a 2-minute stroll away, Hunstanton Town just a few miles away and many great family-friendly things to do close by.

Hunstanton Camping & Glamping is on the West Coast of Norfolk, for those that do not know, that means that although we are on the East Coast of England, we actually face West, meaning we get to enjoy the most amazing, colourful sunsets over the sea. For some this comes as a breathtaking surprise, often rendering them speechless and questioning what is happening with the cosmos! For those in the know, we make a special trip to the beach just to view this spectacle, make sure you take the time for watching a dazzling sunset when you come to stay with us, it'll be incredible we promise!

On Bank Holiday Weekends our Hunstanton Campsite has been described by guests as having a 'festival vibe' our guests come here with the view to having a great camping trip by the beach and their friendly nature provides a welcoming atmosphere for all. We try to limit arrivals over the Bank Holiday to Friday Evenings and Saturday Mornings to avoid disruption to our guests holidaying with us, adding to the laid back ambience that we strive to provide here on the Norfolk Coast.


We offer camping pitches to all from Hikers Tents to Jumbo Family Tents, we have a pitch for you! We also welcome Campervans, Motorhomes and Caravans, plus Roof Top Tents, Horse Trailers, maybe even a Boat! We strive to be a welcoming and inclusive campsite, we encourage campfires, after all, what is camping without the smell of wood-burning and toasting marshmallows over the flames? We are dog friendly and love to see your four-legged furry friends. We accept and encourage group bookings, for young adults and older adults alike. Whatever the kind of camping trip you are looking for, we are confident we can provide it for you, try us :)

Dogs are of course very welcome here at Hunstanton Camping & Glamping, in the camping field and in our Glamping Shepherds Huts & Glamping Bell Tents. Our beach is also very dog friendly, as is most of Norfolk. Close by we have some lovely walking routes to get out hiking with your four-legged friends, the kids or just on your own.

"I’m going to walk almost 11000 miles of coastline around mainland Britain, surviving with minimal kit, and relying on the kindness of strangers. I’m leaving my family at home to complete a perimeter circuit of Britain. Getting home to my family is my motivation to do it as quickly as I can"

Chis the Coast Walker started his epic journey with us here in North Norfolk, from those very first few steps along our Beach, Chris has now almost completed 11 000 miles of UK coastline, hoping to return to South Beach, Heacham in the next few days.

"I must walk the entire distance, I will use bridges or inroads where crossing points dictate, I will navigate by OS map, GPS  and the stars. I’m heading clockwise from North Norfolk so really I just have to keep the sea on my left"

During the First lockdown, Chris (like many of us) was lucky enough to be able to spend every day with his 3 daughters, in his happy, healthy, normal(ish!) home. Many many children in the Uk do not have the same experience of family life as Chris and his children, many are living below the poverty line and/or have been subject to deprivation and physical abuse. On this epic adventure, Chris is raising money for Children in Need, this organisation supports so many other organisations in the UK that directly help children facing a range of disadvantages in life. Throughout the global pandemic, they’re continuing to provide support to those that need it most.

Starting out 11000 miles here with us in Heacham

11000 miles, what an epic adventure around our incredible coastline

"For the first time on my journey I’ve been able to see Norfolk & home again, the land across the wash from Skegness is where I started 421 days ago now… it’s not far away, just 16 miles across the water but I have to walk the river up to Boston.… I’m almost at a point where I could get a bus or train home every night and the temptation is huge"

As Chris's adventure comes to an end, we look forward to welcoming him back to us here on the Norfolk Coast. Please take the time to view his Just Giving Page and give what you can, just £2 can provide breakfast or lunch for a hungry child. You can look back on Chris's adventure on his Facebook Page and check out all the amazing photos he has taken of our incredible Coast Line.

Horse riding is a great way to appreciate our beautiful Norfolk Coast, to get back to nature and explore everything our coastline has to offer. We have an intricate network of bridleways, byways and quiet country roads and our amazing beaches are very welcoming of horses. Holkham is a stand out choice with miles and miles of golden sand for your horse to really stretch their legs and get galloping.

For longer rides throughout the countryside try the 64-mile Peddars Way Riders Route or two 12 mile circular routes on the Peddars Way taking in Great Massingham, Gayton Thorpe and Grimston Heath – details on both Norfolk Route #1 and Norfolk Route #2 found on The British Horse Society website.

To help identify other bridle routes through West Norfolk, visit the interactive Equestrian Access Map for rides and trails in Norfolk.

There are also many top-class equestrian events throughout West Norfolk, usually including the Burnham Market International Horse Trials in April, Houghton International Horse Trials at Houghton Hall in May and the Burnham Market Horse Trials in September.
