Shepherd's huts in Holkham National Nature Reserve with horseback riding guide

Overview

England’s largest NNR is still vaster than you think because, while stretching only 13 miles between Burnham Overy Staithe (west) and Blakeney (east) along the Norfolk Coast AONB, the amount of land between the closest coastal road and the sea is more expansive than meets the eye. This is all a tantalising tract of beach and dunes backed by enchanting pine forest and interspersed with mudflats. Discover secretive shoreside trails and sleepy lanes for cycling; wildlife-watch for seals around Blakeney Point or for the region’s many overwintering wildfowl. There are many places to peg up a tent on the flat fertile ground behind the coast – not least within the grand grounds of an 18th-century landscaped estate!

Where to go

Holkham Hall & Around

Within the NNR and south of Holkham village, this majestic early-18th-century, Neo-Palladian house and grounds were created out of formerly wind-blasted land transformed by the planting of thousands of trees. There is a pop-up campsite open between mid-July and mid-September near the lake on this majestic estate. Also on the Holkham Hall grounds is Ambers Bell Tents Glamping at Branthill Farm. Holkham Bay’s pine-backed sands are an easy walk north, where you can connect to the Norfolk Coast Path.

Scolt Head Island NNR

West of Holkham NNR, more of the same sort of coastline continues and here you find the sandy, shingly barrier island of Scolt Head Island NNR. The four-mile-long island is particularly important for its birdwatching and is accessed from either Burnham Overy Staithe or Brancaster Staithe. Deepdale Camping & Rooms at Burnham Deepdale is linked by footpath to the trail out to Scolt Head Island from Brancaster Staithe: pitch up yourself or camp out in already-erected safari tents.

Blakeney & Blakeney Point

At the eastern end of Holkham NNR, charming Blakeney is the village from where you can walk (or get a boat trip) to Blakeney NNR and Point, England’s biggest grey seal colony. Much of this reserve is off-limits to protect the seals, but trails run through the wetlands adjacent. Camping at the tranquil, informal Scaldbeck Cottage Campsite, near the departure point for seal-watching boat trips, is tough to trump.

Hunstanton & Around

Eleven miles west of Burnham Overy Staithe, 19th-century beach resort Hunstanton knows how to give its holiday-makers a good time: fairground, promenade, amusement arcades and aquarium are all here, alongside an array of camping and caravan parks. There is camping fairly centrally at Searle’s Leisure Park (camping tradition here dates back to 1934) but the best pitching is northeast of nearby Old Huntanton at the several sites along the edge of Holme Dunes NNR (more empty beaches, more ethereal dunes).
