Imagine a base from which to explore North Norfolk, situated within an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, just a stroll from the ocean and where you’ll sleep beneath some of the widest, darkest, most star-spangled skies around. No need to imagine – Deepdale Backpackers & Camping in the pretty little Coastal village of Burnham Deepdale is just such a place.
Deepdale Backpackers Hostel is open all year round, providing award-winning accommodation in the form of doubles, twins, triples, quads and family options, all with private ensuite shower and toilet facilities. They also offer single sex dorm rooms, and small group rooms, all of which have ensuite shower and toilet facilities too.
The Hostel buildings date back to the 17th Century and are centred around a partially covered old stable courtyard (with BBQ area, naturally). All bedding is provided, along with a fully equipped kitchen for self catering (though there are a number of fantastic food pubs close by, as well as the marvellous Deepdale Café), a laundry and sitting room (with woodburner for chilly winter evenings). A superior Hostel on every front, you can expect a stay here to be that little bit more comfortable than at your usual run-of-the-mill backpacker accommodation. For example, there is underfloor heating throughout, satellite TV in the lounge and Internet access. Perfect.
If camping is more your thing, Deepdale Camping is a quiet (they have a strict ‘no noise’ policy after 10pm in the evening) family friendly campsite for tents, campervans, motorhomes and trailer tents (sorry no caravans), situated on 6 well drained grass paddocks in the heart of Burnham Deepdale. Open all year, the site has modern, eco-friendly and clean shower, toilet and washing up facilities, as well as access to the laundry at the Hostel. A simple, but beautiful site (perfect for the purist camper), Deepdale Camping offers electrical hookups. Deepdale is dog friendly, but is not suitable for large groups.
Deepdale is totally eco-friendly and has been awarded 4 Black Pennants (AA) and Gold by the Green Tourism Business Scheme.
With so much going for it, we really cannot recommend Deepdale Backpacking & Camping highly enough. Our only word of warning – book well in advance. A destination such as this is popular and we’d hate for you to be disappointed…
