Old Brick Kilns Site, Fakenham, Norfolk

Recommended Posts

Can anyone provide any recent feedback on this site, which sounds nice, for a July holiday? Thanks.

I can't comment on July but I have been to this site 3 times at end November on a rally when visiting Thursford Spectacular Christmas Show. The site is very well maintained by the owners and occupies the site of an old brick works. The vans are on 3 levels, a few either side of the old brickwork buildings that have been converted into a shop, toilets and restaurant with bar. The majority of the pitches are at a lower level in the area that was used to quarry the clay for the brickworks. These pitches have a separate toilet block, water and refuse area. There is a higher level to one side of the quarried area that is reserved for adults only. There is also a caravan storage area on the upper level. A pond is part of the site and fishing is possible for a fee.

The site is accessed by a long single track road with passing places. You must observe the site times for arrival and departure as it may be difficult to pass if units come from both directions at the same time. The site is 15 to 20 minute drive from towns of Fakenham and Holt (Holt has a Country Park for walkers and dog owners, but parking charges apply). There is a reasonable dog walk that runs around the top of the quarried area.

We have always enjoyed our stay on this site and the owners are very welcoming and maintain site to a high standard. Hope this helps,

There are several very good CLs on the road to South Creake, and also a C&CC CS.

This was (and probably still is) a very good site when Tony and Tessa ran it. Haven't stayed there since they retired but be aware that, relative to what else is available in the area, it is now expensive.


The CC or C&CC sites at Sandringham are both very nice and have easy access to Hunstanton and the coast up to Brancaster with the wonderful sands. I think both will also be cheaper even peak season.


The CC also run a managed site at Fakenham race course but they can be funny if you have to unavoidably cancel at short notice.


The CC sites one the coast towards Cromer are also very good.


If you are a member of the CC or C&CC have a look at the CLs in the area. If you are not have a look at www. 5van. co. uk and you will probably find something that suits much cheaper than Barney.
