A Norfolk Road Trip

May 3rd, 2012

This piece contains information about the wonderful county of Norfolk, where there are lots of exciting things to see and do. So join us on Camperbug’s virtual road trip, during we will be taking in a campsite, visiting a beach or two and of course checking out a Norfolk camper van that we can hire to do all these things in!

Norfolk’s low-lying landscape and beautiful scenery make it a popular holiday destination. This eastern county’s rugged coastline is kept alert by the blusterings of the North Sea. The unceasing assaults on it’s coast have resulted in an instinctive wariness and respect for the sea whose rough affections have helped create the dramatic coastline that is so fun to visit. For rugged coastline also read, great beaches; and for great beaches Norfolk does not disappoint. Tour Norfolk have done a wonderful piece on the beautiful beaches that can be found in Norfolk but let’s get started on this trip with glorious sandy beach of Mundesley.

Located on the North Norfolk coast, Mundesley combines rolling farming land with a seaside town. The clean beach boasts miles of long sands which stretch for miles and are great for long walks. Leaving Mundesley and following the A149 along the coast path, leads you to Holkham Bay. As the map shows, you will pass through the towns of Sheringham and Cromer. Some parts of this road may be inaccessible so consult your maps before you set off.

Holkham Beach won the Coastal Award of 2011 for Beast Beach. The countless miles of beautiful golden sands, bounded by salty marshes and dunes are part of one of the UK’s largest nature reserves. The beach is liberating in its spaciousness with its huge size making it possible for the walker to find quite isolation, providing a splendid opportunity to observe the wide variety of striking fauna and flora.

A few miles from the beach you will find a campsite called Deepdale Farm It’s located in the village of Burnham Deepdale and is a location popular with campervans. Deepdale is a good location from which to explore the North Norfolk coast line.

If you’re wondering how to camp when you’re on your roadtrip, then why not check out Maggie May. This retro campervan is fully kitted out, with all mod cons and a striking pop top roof providing an extra bed room upstairs. She’s a cool cucumber, fun to camp in and bred to cruise along costal country lanes.
