Stayed here over the half term. First time camping in years and this was a real back to basic camp site. We loved it! It has a real relaxed feel to it with fresh eggs and a friendly atmosphere. Facilities are basic but as long as you can wash and go then not sure what else you need.

The kids loved it and we are going back.

The fire's are a big bonus as it got chilly at night

Well we have just returned from our fourth trip to Breck Farm - the first this year, and I'm pleased to say it is as good as ever.

The facilities block has been expanded again, with the welcome addition of some outdoor washing up sinks to supplement the indoor ones, and what looks to be extra toilets/showers, although they were cordoned off - maybe for use when the site is very busy. The welcome was as friendly as ever, and it was lovely to toast marshmallows round the campfire again.

I would have to say though, that you are very much at the mercy of the other campers, as the owners are pretty laid back. We had a most unpleasant run in last year with a large group that - in addition to being very noisy late into the night - also insisted on buzzing round the site on those annoying little mini motorbikes. I would agree with a previous reviewer who suggests that those looking for a peaceful site may be best off avoiding this site at very busy times, but for a relaxing weekend in June it is most definitely worth a visit.

We have just returned from Breck Farm and can only advise that this is not the site to visit on Bank Holidays.

The first day of our stay was fine with plenty of room to pitch and the shower/toilet facilities kept very clean.

Regrettably there would appear to be no maximum quantity of tents / caravan this site will allow and consequently fields kept being opened with more & more people arriving. This drastically altered the whole feel of the site & totally overstretched the facilities until there were long queues for the showers which eventually ceased to work at all & also a loss of hot water for the washing up area.

Additionally frustrating was that even though it was known that the showers were not working no notice was put up so numerous people were still putting there 50p tokens in and losing their money.

Another annoyance was that camp fires were allowed in certain fields which I can understand is very appealing but for those without the fires who are in the direct line of the smoke it can be very frustrating.

We have been camping for many years and this has been our worse experience yet which was due totally to the site not restricting its numbers to suit the facilities available.

Our second trip to Breck Farm. We arrived on the Sunday before the Bank holiday and it was very busy however we still managed to find a fabulous area to pitch on the edge the bottom field next to the woods.

Our main reason for visiting here is the ability to have a camp fire. On arrival we were told to pitch wherever we wanted, which we think is lovely. Despite being busy the campsite was very quiet after dark, us being the last to bed at about 11pm I think!

The toilets / showers are a bit of a trek from the bottom field and there were queues on the Monday morning. The hot water appeared to have run out by 11am which was a little disappointing. This was only on the Monday when they were very busy and lots of people were leaving early.

There are 3 freezers for ice blocks and an information board, where the owners display the local weather daily as well as local walks, pubs, beaches etc. The farm sells Wood, Eggs, Potatoes, marshmallows and books!

The owners are lovely, very friendly, helpful and always available. There were even some of the farmers children coming around every morning collecting rubbish! Every evening someone would drive around in his van checking all was Ok and stopping for a chat!

The local area is brilliant, There are some lovely walks and cycle rides. It about a mile to the village and to the railway station for the North Norfolk Steam train. Half and hour through the woods to Kelling Heath Holiday park. (we told they have entertainment & a pool!)

Cromer & Sheringham are both lovely seaside towns, West Runton has a great beach for rock pools.

All in all we love this site, however the facilities are basic. EHU is available but not where you can have a fire.

We cant wait to return. (But not on a bank holiday again!)

We arrived on a Saturday lunchtime having been advised on the phone by the owners that there was no need to book and they were right! It was very busy and seemingly full of tents but somehow the space was endless! We picked our spot and plotted up with room for our friends who were arriving shortly after us. I loved the feel of pitching where you like and the open space and the general feel of the campsite.

The facilities could be a little walk from your tent depending on where you decided to pitch but we were far enough without being too far! It was a very large barn construction with lots of loos and and wash basins a few showers for each sex, reasonably clan most of the time. (There were also further loos and showers near to the farm house.) In the amenities block there was also freezer to put your ice packs in and a washing up area wit several sinks.

My favourite thing about this site was that we could have open fires! it just made the biggest difference to those often chilly evenings when camping and seeing the little orange glows all around the fields was gorgeous!

We will definitely visit again!

Initially I thought I may have made a mistake but on closer inspection and over time this site grew on us. We did however notice that an electric fence had been erected and was on without any warning signs.

This site is still under a certain amount of construction and when we were there a tree wall was being planted and some showers were closed off.

The kids loved the open fires and at night all you can hear is giggling from the tent field.

This site is well worth a visit.

This is the first time we visited Breck Farm because we like to camp at a site where campfires are allowed.


This is a delightful campsite with plenty of space.

The shower block is completed and water is hot. Also there are plenty of toilets so never have to queue and they are all very clean at all times.

It is surrounded by nature and woodland, definitely make you relax the moment you step into the campsite.


Unfortunately when we were there, 2 out of 4 showers in the ladies were broken. The owners called up the plumber to fix ASAP.

Overall, this is a campsite with all the facilities you need and the space / nature you seek. Remember, they allow campfires too!

If you having a last minute urge for camping and worry whether there will be space available in any of the campsites in North Norfolk, Do contact Breck Farm because they indeed have a very large field.

This site is easy to find, but rural and quiet (except for the steam train in summer)and close to lovely villages and seashore.

It is a large field basically, on a farm, surrounded on 2 sides by a woodland. Facilities are basic.

The best bit is the farmer will sell you logs (about £4 a sack) and he allows camp fires - awe-full = full of awe!.

I cannot add anything to what has already been said, and all of it good.

The reason I chose this site,apart from the great write-ups was that I was born in Holt and lived in High Kelling as a child and this was a return visit after 45 years away. Imagine you owned a field in North Norfolk with all the facilities you need as a camper / caravanner, that was the impression I had.

Richard and his family exceptionally friendly and the sale of eggs and wonderful 'Norfolk Pink' potatoes sold at what appeared to me to be below cost price, really made it a worth while visit.

Don't be put off by the non existent entry sign and the impression that you are entering 'Cold Comfort Farm' The toilet block should be finished shortly, read other reviews.

One last comment. I visited out of season,which was perfect for a couple and two dogs. Maybe in high season things could be a little bit hectic. One other thing,there are no shops close by, by that I mean walking distance but Holt by car about 12 minutes 'The Oxford / Regent Street of Norfolk' All in all ten out of ten

What a simply wonderful back to basics site! As has been said in other reviews the facilities are basic, but clean. Dont go here if you want a shower block that would not be out of place in a hotel. Its concrete floors and breeze block walls so flip flops are a must. The owners are very friendly and helpful, and even fixed the shower in the disabled loo for us with no fuss. Oh and the disabled facilities are great, just the usual problem of the mirror being too high for a wheelchair user.

The pitches are a little uneven, and when we went the ground was like concrete! Even had trouble getting delta pegs in! Also beware the site is a little exposed and once the wind got up I was grateful for having delta pegs! It was lovely though sitting out with a little fire (?4 for a bag of logs), egg butty (£1 for 6 eggs) and a cold beer watching the sunset!
