Camping and glamping in Waxham

Camping and glamping in Waxham showcases the very best of Norfolk’s stunning natural highlights. A small village with a lengthy sandy beach, Waxham is an excellent base for campers and glampers with a love of nature, walking and the water. Away from Norfolk’s larger seaside resorts, this is a place for peaceful camping and glamping, long walks and lazy days by the beach or on The Broads. Norfolk’s wide, open spaces and captivating coastline have long attracted campers and holidaymakers but here at Hipcamp we look beyond the holiday parks and caravan sites to find camping and glamping sites that offer individuality and charm. There are classic campsites that are perfect for pitching tents and glamping sites where you can stay in camping pods, bell tents and luxuriously-appointed shepherd’s huts.

Things to do in Waxham

If you’re looking for things to do in Waxham on your camping and glamping holiday in the area, the natural place to start is the beach. Waxham's sands are wild and rural but neighbouring Sea Palling beach offers more facilities and safe swimming under the watchful eyes of RNLI lifeguards in the summer. Linked by the sands and the Norfolk Coast Path, it’s a short stroll south to Horsey Gap where you can see seals on the beach. The museum at Waxham Great Barn and the National Trust’s Horsey Windpump are two fascinating buildings, now operating as tourist attractions, that offer an insight in to the area’s past. The windpump also marks a gateway to The Broads and you can join a wildlife-watching boat trip from here. The Broads National Park is Britain’s largest wetland reserve with more than 125 miles of navigable waterways among its seven rivers and 60 Broads. Hickling Broad, near Waxham, is the largest of the lot. Head for Hickling Broad National Nature Reserve to walk among the waterways or join a Norfolk Wildlife Trust boat trip to look out for the marsh harriers, bitterns and bearded tits that are at home here. Further afield, you can enjoy a day of seaside fun in the bustling resort of Great Yarmouth to the south or the smaller resort towns of Cromer and Sheringham to the north, known for their crab and shellfish.
