Just got back from another fabulous weekend at scaldbeck cottage met some really nice people it's a basic site but I think all the better for it

Beautiful scenery around Morston and Blakeney with easy access to Wells next the Sea and Cromer and all along the coast by the coast hopper bus

All in all a great site with great owners in a wonderful part of the UK

What a lovely site

Just got back from a long weekend here

Very welcoming owners and clean facilities

Nice flat large pitches in 1 field short walk to the Anchor pub great food and beer

Lovely walks straight out onto the marshes and coast path Blakeney about 20 minute stroll

I camped alone and travelled there by public transport and I'd emailed previously asking if they sold logs but they didn't but the owners offered me a lift to Blakeney so I could get some not many places would do that

Will definitely be back here

Lovely location and very peaceful and tranquil. For a weekend a great spot but if you are staying for any longer the facilities are extremely limited. No hot water in the sink in the toilet to wash your hands and no hot water at the wash up sink in the field - also only the one toilet in the one shower cubicle so you may understand more about somebody else's business than you wanted to! It is only for this reason we have marked this site down, if you are ok with extreme rustic toilet/shower facilities, then it is a great site.

My husband and I have just returned from 5 days of camping at Scaldbeck Cottage and we had the most wonderful time. We usually stay further down the coast but decided on a change of scenery and it certainly is some of the most amazing scenery. The campsite is literally a stone's throw from the marshes (and I can't throw!) just the other side of a line of trees. It is the quietest, most serene campsite we have ever been to apart from the birds who start early on their dawn chorus, I can't say this was a bad thing to be woken up by!

We decided to have breakfast cooked for us half way through the holiday and it was really tasty, try the homemade jams as they are amazing! As you will read from other reviews there is only one loo and shower together, however, there were times during our stay that the site was full to their quota of 12 people and I had to wait once for a matter of 20 seconds, I couldn't see this as an issue. There were also times when we had the campsite to ourselves which was bliss.

We weren't really that interested in birdlife but they certainly persuade you to be interested, it's teaming with wildlife on the doorstep. There is a pub in the village, the seal trips on the quay, and it's only just over a mile (you can walk the coastal route or drive) to Blakeney which has a good selection of restaurants/pubs and some shops.

This campsite is certainly on our saved list, a wonderful stay.

We love this site and have stayed there many times. It is only about 45 minutes from home and the place we think of for a very quick break if we happen to be at home and the weather is good.

Five or six tents max. One shower and toilet (they are together so you do have to wait at times) which are perfectly decent and clean enough (perhaps not if you are a clean freak). Basically an outside loo on the house with a shower in it.

Campfires allowed unless everything is bone dry and then common sense prevails.

Lovely owner and we have always met lovely fellow campers at this place, sort of place where we end up sharing dinner/drinks with other campers.

Plenty of room for the few tents they have. Horses in the immediate field next door (well, same field actually with electric fencing). Some picnic tables (I think there is one per tent pitch).

Lovely location for walks along the coastal path.

We have just returned from a weeks camping at Scaldbeck Cottage. We were delighted with it and found it to be a very friendly, welcoming place, especially the owner. Because it is so small, we got chatting to the other campers and swapped tips of places to visit/ eat. The facilities are basic, but the toilet/shower area was clean and adequate for the number of people the site caters for. We were able to use the chest freezer in the house to freeze our blocks for the cool box. You are close to the main road, but the noise didn't disturb us and it was not particularly noticeable. The 2 resident chickens are very curious. The wood pigeons are numerous and noisy!

Be warned that the ground is extremely hard, rock pegs are recommended, and to put them in at a steep angle. We loved the fact that we were directly on the coastal path and could walk and cycle to pretty villages/towns from the site. We bought a lot of locally prepared seafood and samphire from kiosks and shops on beaches and in the villages. We also bought fruit and had fantastic coffee and cakes at Wiveton farm shop. Another place worth visiting is Fellbrigg Hall, the walled garden is beautiful. Next time we will take advantage of the Coastal Hopper bus, which is very well used by tourists and locals alike, and do more walking.

We had mixed weather, but the rain passed through quickly, and you can watch all the weather systems coming through. Fantastic sunsets and massive expanses of sky over Morston and Blakeney.

Definitely a place to return to.
