We’ve just made your camping experience even more delicious!
Now you can skip the supermarket and turn to our new Hickling Hut camp shop for fresh local produce and fresh coffee.
We are proud to introduce our new addition onsite, the Hickling Hut
Tom and his brother Isaac combined their talents to create our new camp shop, aptly named The Hickling Hut. Jo has thoroughly enjoyed sourcing fresh local produce by scaling every inch of the county for the freshest and finest Norfolk has to offer. With Swannington Farm to Fork meats to keep your barbeques stocked with high quality and homegrown flavour, to pastries and cakes galore, fresh-baked every day by award-winning Norwich bakery Pye Bakers.
For coffee connoisseurs
The Hickling Hut also has an impressive all singing, all dancing coffee machine, and we are proud to note that coffee connoisseurs camping and glamping on site have all been thoroughly impressed with our barista’s efforts. Our freshly ground coffee beans come from Strangers Coffee in Norwich, a multi award-winning coffee shop and roasters run by three brothers who have spent more than a decade learning the skills of the industry, focusing on the quality and ethicality of the coffees they roast and serve. We can also whip up a pretty excellent hot chocolate.
For those hot summer afternoons when you’re just back from the beach, we have stocked up on Dann’s ‘udderly delicious’ ice cream, with plenty of unique flavours to satisfy the most discerning ice cream fan. The Danns have farmed more than 600 acres in the village of North Tuddenham for four generations. Over the last 10 years the team have developed hundreds of different flavours of ice cream and won a sheaf of awards and accolades. We would love to hear what you think of the flavours… we love the Wild Strawberry.
Keep fueled for the day
Camping wouldn’t be camping without porridge, and so we stock legendary Norwich Porridge to keep our campers fuelled for the day of activities that awaits them. Created by two Norwich friends with a simple objective: to produce a delicious super-healthy product that’s both convenient and doesn’t compromise on quality in anyway. Norwich Porridge is gluten-free, high in fibre and a fantastic source of protein. The proof is in the porridge…
Popping fresh from the farm in Bintree is Algy’s popcorn, and the Hickling Hut has a size for every craving, from big family size boxes to individual packs. Algy’s Norfolk Popcorn is produced on the family farm in the heart of beautiful Norfolk. This unique food venture was born while trialing alternative crops on the farm, when the family discovered the secret to the best tasting popcorn was to cook it with their own home-grown rape seed oil and flavour with British sugar. A great local combination.
Tasty local cheeses
We have Tom’s school friend, Arthur to thank for supplying us with his very tasty local cheeses, all made by hand using traditional methods at Ferndale Farm. There is Smoked Dapple, smoked for at least 12 hours on the farm and Norfolk Dapple, the original, which is aged for between four and six months. All the milk which goes into the cheese comes from one nearby farm – Abbey Farm in Binham – so they can be sure that the milk is of a consistent top standard and the cows are kept to excellent welfare standards.
Yare Valley Oils
Yare Valley Oils is produced by a farming family beside the Norfolk broads. Ever since settling beside the Broads in the early 1900s the Mack Family have been farming the rich soil of the Yare Valley. You can find an array of their award winning cold-pressed Rapeseed oils, dressings, infusions at the Hickling hut.
Our eggs are sourced from your neighbours at Hickling’s very own free-range chicken farm.
When it comes to local snacks, you can’t find better than Kettle Crisps, where local potatoes are hand cooked with care in small batches and seasoned with simply great tasting combinations of ingredients. Try the crispy bacon and maple syrup… Or for something sweeter, try one of our bars from local chocolate maker Gnaw. There are plenty of amazing flavours to give our happy campers their chocolate fix should day 3 of marshmallows just tip you over the edge…
Here is a list of all the websites should you wish to order more of something once you are home! Please do let us know if there is anything specific we can provide and Jo will make sure she has it in stock ready for your arrival…
