Scenic, simple camping with North Norfolk's best sights on your doorstep

Archer's Field is exactly what you need from a reasonably priced rural retreat. Owners Peter and Kate are experienced in this field — and are experienced with fields, given their ownership of a farm — with the husband-and-wife couple previously running Airbnb cottages for holiday-goers. Now, they've opened their farm gates to a more outdoorsy venture, offering space for 20 pitches in a meadow and Aldar carr opposite their smallholding. Plant your tent down anywhere, breathe in the fresh country air, and go explore some of the most picturesque sights Norfolk has to offer.

In a meadow lined with mature oak, ash, and poplar trees, Archer's Field lets you set up camp next to a gorgeous pond, with myriad wildlife joining you during your stay. Expect to see nesting buzzards, grazing deer and muntjac, along with hooting owls and fishing egrets. Picnic benches line the water, allowing you to take a seat and watch the world go by. While a simple pitch, there are still higher quality amenities than your typical portaloo and cold shower; two modules provide flushing toilets, hot-water showers, and a basin for you to spruce yourself up, while fresh produce can also be obtained from the farm gate. Two bell tents are also available to hire for those who want to leave their own accommodation at home, and parties can opt to book out the entire site exclusively for an unforgettable stay with all their family and friends.

Peter and Kate are attentive hosts who are extremely knowledgeable of their local area; feel free to ask them for their tips on the best walks, cycle routes, and activities around the Erpingham site, of which there are many given its close proximity to Norwich — less than a 40-minute drive away — and the nearby coast boasting scenic sea views from the likes of Overstrand and Cromer beach. Entrench yourself even deeper into your natural surroundings with a visit to the Norfolk Broads, ideal for rambling or cycling along its woodland and waterside trails. Be it the Broads, the coasts, the countryside, or the seaside, Archer's Field places you within reach of all that North Norfolk has to offer.

Archer's Tent set in the Alder Carr
Perfect Campsite
We absolutely loved our glamping experience in Archer's Tent - we decided to treat ourselves as we have been camping in our own tent for years. For the price, we had a spacious tent, a double bed, electricity, fairy lights, a fire-pit, picnic table and a secluded spot away from other campers. For us it was perfect for our family getaway. The toilet and shower facilities were great, plus we had access to a fridge and the chance to purchase eggs and logs. The owner was super friendly and helpful and was on site each day if you had any questions. We hope to be back and 100% recommend it to anyone wanting to camp in North Norfolk.

Bank Holiday stay
Nice little site, very relaxed. Host was super accommodating for our party ensuring we could all be together, which was very important to us. Electric hook up was big bonus, and the use of a comunial fridge/ freezer, & hire of a fire pit were lovely touches. Only point to note is toilet/shower facilities are very basic and on a busy weekend like ours needed twice as many!

Archer's Field is a picturesque meadow, surrounded by mature trees and with a lovely pond.

The field is located 15 minutes from the North Norfolk coastline and 20 minutes from the Norfolk Broads National park. We are 30 minutes from the historic and beautiful city of Norwich.
