Meadow Camping in Norfolk
Meadow camping, if you haven’t heard of it before, is a great way to experience camping in Norfolk. This type of camping, which Driftways is renowned for, is considered a more natural and serene way to camp, surrounded by countryside in a secluded and peaceful setting.
Meadow camping in Norfolk, as the name suggests, offers a more rustic form of camping, but still with access to clean compost toilets, hot showers, and your very own fire pit to keep warm.
Now, we can’t speak for every meadow site but camping in Norfolk with us gives you plenty of space. You’ll almost feel as if you’re in your very own meadow. Mown into the grass, each pitch is at least 16 metres in diameter and a minimum of 8 metres between the next pitch.
To maintain the beauty of the meadow, our site is car-free. But don’t worry, we supply easy-to-push wheelbarrows to carry items to your pitch, which is all part of the fun!
