Touring and camping in Norfolk
Whether you’re in a tourer or bringing your tent, join us at Waxham Sands for the ultimate coastal getaway in Norfolk.
Experience the magic of Horsey Gap’s sandy dunes and wave to our grey seal colonies from our dog-friendly holiday park, tucked behind picturesque sand dunes in Norfolk. Choose between electric and non-electric pitches to set up camp on flat grasslands or brand new Luxury, Standard and Superior holiday homes on your next holiday by nature with us.
Take off on a touring and camping adventure in the picturesque north Norfolk. Immerse yourself in the beauty of the countryside, discover charming coastal landscapes, and unwind in quaint village pubs. Set up camp once more beneath the starry sky for a truly enchanting holiday.
Welcome to our lovely local area. There’s so much to do — too much to list, in fact — but here are just a few of our favourite local places and activities you should check out if you’re staying with us.
The Great Barn — this recently-refurbished, grade I-listed thatched Tudor barn is just on our doorstep in Waxham — a real slice of local heritage and history. It’s the longest one of its kind in the county, featuring lively exhibitions and even boasting its own café serving up delicious homemade delicacies.
Sea Palling — just up the road is an award-winning, Blue Flag beach. Clean, tidy, golden and dog-friendly, it’s the perfect backdrop for a crisp morning stroll or afternoon saunter.
Seal spotting at Horsey — take a short walk into the delightful village of Horsey and its beach. We’d recommend a visit to Brograve Mill or the National Trust Horsey Windpump whilst looking out over Horsey Mere. That’s followed, of course, by a refreshment at the Nelson Head pub.
Norfolk Broads National Park — from Wroxham to Horning, this gorgeous wildlife-filled waterway network has no shortage of beautiful little villages, each bursting with character (and opportunities for boat hire!).
Great Yarmouth — where do we start? Yarmouth’s a true British seaside treasure trove of fun. Make sure to head to SEA LIFE Aquarium for the opportunity to marvel at incredible sea creatures, and also check out The Marine Parade — also known as the Golden Mile — offering endless amusements and activities.
Museum of the Broads — steep yourselves in Norfolk history with a short, 15-minute drive to Stalham Staithe. Discover the stories of the Broads; the people, wildlife and the boats.
Thrigby Hall Museum Gardens — just 10 miles down the road and past Filby Broad is an incredible range of animals, including snow leopards, red pandas and gibbons, as well as a range of treetop and tunnel walks. Without a doubt a real local family favourite.
No trip to our spot on the Norfolk coast is complete without seeing our neighbours, so we’ve compiled the ultimate guide to safe seal spotting and watching.
For uninterrupted views and fresh air in equal measure, little beats exploring East Norfolk on foot — especially when you’re in the company of your beloved furry friend(s).
Whether you’re fancying a leisurely beach day or seeking to have a little more adventure close by, Sea Palling and its surrounding areas have something for everyone.
