Bootiful by nature

Secluded and beautiful village campsite in the heart of the Norfolk Broads, with generous space for tents on wonderfully flat grassy pitches, as well as a choice of Shepherd huts and other glamping options.

Tom and Jo are delighted to welcome you to what they describe as their ‘little piece of paradise’. As a local couple who absolutely love Norfolk and camping, they decided to combine the two!

At the heart of the largest broad in Norfolk and its outstanding coastline, Hickling Campsite is the perfect base to pitch up and go exploring… a cycle ride away from award winning, secluded, yet vast sandy beaches; and under a mile’s walk to Hickling’s quaint, traditional village pub, The Greyhound, and The Pleasure Boat Inn, which is situated on the impressive Hickling Broad, making it the perfect place to relax while watching boats glide in and out along the tranquil and picturesque broad.

Hickling Broad is an absolute haven for wildlife too, being a national nature reserve established by English Nature and in the care of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, there are plenty of boat trips around the reserve for visitors to explore.

Or if you fancy taking the helm yourselves, with 125 miles of navigable waterways Hickling Broad is the perfect place to take to the water.

Tom and Jo believe that a fire is an essential part of outdoor living, therefore, to save you the trouble of making your own, they have plenty of braziers for you to gather around with marshmallows or simply cook your burgers on, with firewood available to purchase too.

There are plenty of raspberries and apples to pick onsite too, so be sure to bring some extra bowls and your appetite when these fruits are in season…

The campsite also benefits from being in an area with extremely low light pollution, and the sky on a clear summer’s night is truly a wonder. The Milky Way and myriad constellations are on display for your personal enjoyment and, if you are lucky enough you can catch a shooting star or two!

WOW! Look at this beautiful Swallowtail butterfly our nature outdoor explorer @forage_fairies stumbled upon at Hickling....
These gorgeous butterflies can be spotted on Hickling Broad and are the largest butterfly in the UK, although with a wing span of 8-9cm they would be hard to miss.
They are hardly seen anywhere but we have loads native here! Swallowtail have been known to hide up in our campers tents, so keep those eyes peeled 🦋
